"The Brain is a genetically enhanced super-genius who is unrelentingly fixated upon global domination.  
    "He is also a laboratory mouse.
    "[...] Despite his supervillain-esque quest to control the world, the Brain is a sympathetic and like-able protagonist thanks to his tenacity and his semi-altruistic belief, albeit mistaken, that the world will benefit from his leadership.  Unshaken form his failures, the Brain formulaically ends each episode by telling Pinky that 'tomorrow night' they would do 'the same thing we do every night -- try to take over the world!'"
