This guide will cover the DC Universe Online Global Briefing known as Brainiac Incursion Tokens. Global Briefings are made up of a series of collectible objectives known as holographic tokens, which usually offer an award for completing the collection, as well as telling a part of the ongoing story. Due to the nature of mmorpgs such as DC Universe Online and their patches, if you find any changed out of date or missing information, alert me with a comment and I will be happy to update the article. You can find pictures of the Global Briefing along with a map of the token locations by clicking the numbers by the thumbnail above. Note: The messages are correct for the holo tokens Louis Lane and Vicki Vale at the time of publishing, the fact that the message spoken seems to be mixed up may be a bug within the game.

DC Universe Online Brainiac Incursion Tokens 1/4 – Brainiac Incursion Vicki Vale
Search exactly one block south from the Louis Lane token mentioned below, where the Brainiac harvester ship hovers above a heavily damaged group of 4 city blocks arranged in a 2×2 grid that jut out as a mini-peninsula of Little Bohemia. You will find this blue holo token right next to a bus stop, in some bushes, by a street that runs along the water’s edge.
Vicki Vale token message: “Louis Lane reporting for daily planet live. Look up in the sky. Is it a bird, a plane, or one of the new heroes and villains battling the new Brainiac threat. One thing is sure, even with the conflict between Superman and Lex Luthor or Wonder Woman and Circe, the one enemy they all have in common is Brainiac.”
DC Universe Online Brainiac Incursion Tokens 2/4 – Brainiac Incursion Louis Lane
The Louis Lane token can be found in the mini peninsula south of Club L’Excellence where the Brainiac ship hovers above. Look for a 2×2 city blocks where the northwest block contains two trees, some various park items and Brainiac’s minions, with the southern two blocks containing buildings reduced to mostly rubble. You will want to look at the northeast block, where one of the buildings has a small fire and hole blown into it. The blue holo token will be at the bottom of the flight of steps that lead to the front door of the building, nearest to this damage.
Louis Lane token message: “This is Gotham Now, and I am Vicki Vale. The menace known only as Brainiac has attacked our planet and bottled up our cities. He’s leveling entire neighborhoods in his quest to regain the exobytes. Luckily a whole new generation has risen to fight this menace, some led by our own Batman and, believe it or not, the Joker. These are our best hope against the alien menace.“
DC Universe Online Brainiac Incursion Tokens 3/4 – Brainiac Incursion Brainiac (1)
In this same group of city clocks, you will find this third holo token, and first of the two Brainiac tokens, in the northwestern block of the 2×2 grid. Look for the glowing blue token near where Brainiac’s minions patrol around a water pool and fountain near the communication arrays. These are the special Brainiac structures that are destroyable by the water’s edge.
Brainiac (1) message: “Attention citizens of Earth. Do not attempt to resist, or you will be destroyed. This planet, and all it contains already belongs to Brainiac. Your resistance only prolongs the inevitable.”
DC Universe Online Brainiac Incursion Tokens 4/4 – Brainiac Incursion Brainiac (2)
This holo token is located on the same group of city blocks as all the others. You will find this holo token on the southwestern block, at the very tip that reaches the water, where a portion of the street has fallen away due to damage, and is now at almost water level. Go down to this sunken in part of the ground to the inside corner where you will find the token.
Brainiac (2) message: “My sensors indicate you have strong exobyte gifted powers. Why do you fight against me? Your gifts are gifts from me. They came from my future technology. You are a child of Brainiac. Do not fight. Join your master. Give me your powers. Become one with Brainiac.”
