> # Were Luthor and Superman friends? I heard they were really good friends (like best friends) at one point.

Yes, when Lex lived in Smallville as a teen.

> Also, were Batman and Luthor ever friendly and or allies at any point?

That story is currently being told in BATMAN CONFIDENTIAL.

> # Were Brainiac and Superman ever allies, or always enemies? I thought Brainiac was a Legion member before he turned bad. Or was that ANOTHER Brainiac I'm thinking of? How many are there anyway?

Brainiac is a Superman villain. You’re thinking of Brainiac 5. He is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He is a descendent of the Brainiac who is a member of Superman’s rogues gallery.

Here are two very good links for more information on the various Brainiacs over the years

> # Did the Cyborg Superman and Superman really have a relationship before he became the Cyborg Superman? I know that they knew each other, but how close were they? And how come this guy keeps on dying?

Again, I direct you to Wikipedia:

> # The Prankster seems cool, but really, how could he be a threat to Supes? He is still just a human.

So?

> # I heard the Toyman went straight at one point. What's with the new Toyman? Is the old one still around?

One more time:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyman

Linking is easier than retyping. \:\-\)

> # Is Metallo still alive? It seemed like Luthor pulled out his heart ot something. I'll had to re-read that part of Up Up and Away.

> # Aren't Bizarro and Superman kind of allies, not enemies? Ditto for Mr. Mxyznoonecanpronouncehisnameimp?

Well, it depends on the writer. Both characters have been handled different ways (and with Bizarro, there have been several different ones, post-Crisis).

In my perfect world, I wouldn’t call either of them an ally, but neither would get the “enemy” tag, either. Mxyzptlk just likes to have fun. Sometimes, he causes damage and wreaks havoc, but would never do so maliciously. With Bizarro, he just doesn’t know any better.

Oh, and "Mix-yiz-pittle-ick."

> # When did Darkseid and Superman first encounter each other? How many times have they fought?

Early in Byrne’s run. I forget the issue.

Superman issue three, volume two. At the same time, Legends #4 which leads into that issue.
