Area 51 Briefing Locations

Briefing: Area 51 is a collection of Briefings that can be found scattered across the Area 51 Alert Zone, accessible from a player's On Duty Menu upon achieving level 9.


"Brainiac has invaded Cadmus's base at Area 51!"

A Cadmus-run military base at Area 51, in the Nevada desert, has come under attack by Brainiac's forces. Contracted under both the U.S. government and Lexcorp to conduct kryptonite-based research at this location, Cadmus is exploring the mineral's effects on native earth life, as well as developing a process of producing it artificially. Cadmus' stockpile of the rare mineral would represent a significant threat if it were to fall into Brainiac's hands.

  • Location: Found near the southern corner of Command and Control, next to a pile of ammunition crates outside the wall.

I'm telling you, they've teamed up with private genetic powerhouse Cadmus, up in Area 51, and they're researching everything from green kryptonite to DNAliens. You think different? Then you are wrong!"

  • Location: In the dish of a destroyed communications array, northeast of the Brainiac Invasion Site.
  • Briefing : Lex Luthor: "Luthor to Cadmus. I've spent too long on our artificial kryptonite research to have Brainiac steal our raw materials. I trust our other projects have been secured at your other locations? If not, luckily I have allies on my payroll capable of remedying your incompetence. I'll deduct this from your payments as per our contract. Luthor out."

  • Zone: Area 51
  • Location: Underneath a fallen light pole, lying across runway south of the Brainiac Invasion Site.
  • Briefing : Lois Lane: "Superman, Lois Lane from the Daily Planet. We hear that Brainiac is attacking Cadmus. As you know, they've been openly collecting kryptonite, the one element that can weaken you. Do you have any comment on ..."
Superman: "Ms Lane, I'm not sure where you get your information. Surely the U.S. government ensures that any Cadmus base is working within legal limits. As for the kryptonite threat, it seems that our new generation of heroes has inherited our strengths, but not our weaknesses. The JLA and I will be working closely with them to contain any threat from Brainiac, or anyone else."
