You already know one origin for Pinky and the Brain, but we live in a big, complex multiverse, so here's how it happened in another.

He took them all to Freehold, a society he was building in the Arctic. During a battle, Hulk took the opportunity to seemingly kill the Leader, and one of the five survivors from "Gammatown," Omnibus, was elected to take over, since he had intellect nearly on par with Leader's.

So, jump forward to Hulk #438, two of the other survivors are in Omnibus's lab, talking about the experiments he's doing, including gene-splicing white mice to increase their intelligence, and one of them calls it "weird":

Sbubby: Eef Freef

a strange custom Furby that's designed to look like a Subway sub sandwich, with light tan fur at the outsides for bread, floppy yellow triangles for cheese, a pink center suggesting cold cuts, large red half-circles of tomato, and crinkly green fabric lettuce. The person holding it is sitting in front of a mall food court Subway shop. The Furby is wearing a bead necklace that from this angle appears to read PALEGG

Hasbro Marketing Secrets Revealed

Step One: begin with a standard real-worldd vehicle. This Segway will do nicely.

Step Two: add some impractical armor plating. Glass panels are a must.

Step three: add weapons. Giant missile launchers and always good. At least one weapon should pose significant risk to the driver is used.

Step four: paint it olive green for the good guys ("Side-Rocker"), purplish-black for the bad guys ("Slither-Walk").

Step five: add a driver, then show your vehicle emerging from an explosion. Go Joe!
