More Info on The New 52's Doomsday

Get a better look at the updated design and a little bit of new info on the villain!

Villain Month will hit our wallets extra hard in September and one of the exciting announcements is that Doomsday will get his very own issue. This will be the first time the man who punched Superman really, really, reaaaallllly hard will appear in the post-Flashpoint universe and today DC has offered a better look at his updated character design. If I had to take a guess, I'd say it seems like this version of the character likes to keep trophies.

"But who is Doomsday? In The New 52, the legends surrounding this character have become stories told to terrify Kryptonians. Nobody knows who created him, where he comes from, or even dares to utter his name louder than in a whisper. But are the various myths about what the Doomsday creature is real? Was he really let loose on an army? And if nobody knows the truth behind this villain’s origin, is there really a way to stop him?"

Written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Brett Booth, Doomsday's solo issue will go on sale September 25. Are you going to pick this one up, Viners?

He seems even more 90's now. O.O

Seriously those arms and that tiny head, man, just wow.

He's just missing oversized guns

And pouches. So ............ many............... pouches .................... O.O ...........................................

Sorry I was just having a flashback to the dark ages

I understand that the cover is done by Tony S. Daniel who isn't doing the internal art but why would you not just make him how he looks on the cover. I mean he looks AWESOME on the cover...at least in my opinion.

C'mon this is a cool version, if anyone was approached by this thing that would not considered a good day

Edited by GR2Blackout

Giant arms... giant sneakers....

LOOK OUT! IT'S CRAPPY-REDESIGN-ZILLAAAAAAA!!!!!!

Eh, might give it a chance.... I might.

Edited by Foxdye

His look looks cool but I think his back story is gonna be more interesting. Also the fact that he collects war trophies my give him more character. When he came out on the 90s he was just a pointless power house built for the sake of selling Superman comics. Can't wait to see this reboot version :D

although it's like the same design,this guy draws him 1000000000000000000000000000000x better.I mean,I like what this guy did,but his exaggerations don't really compliment doomsday that much.But knowing that this is the actual design makes me actually appreciate his work.But if this was how DD actually looked,I would be just as pissed as all of these other people.

I asked that same question.

Those are some big ass shoes, make Shaq look like he has baby feet.

and the terrible revamped looks of New 52 and Marvel Now continues.

Edited by _Genesis_

He looks good I have to see it in Comics

Head too small

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I don't know how I feel about the look of this Doomsday...it looks to me like Gray Hulk, Badrock, Sludge and Pitt suddenly got into one terribly wrong amalgamation and...well you can figure out the rest. I'm looking forward to the issue though nevertheless since I absolutely love Doomsday.

he looks like crap. not intimidating at all...

Posted by Perfect 10

we have hybrid who needs doomsday. and he pretty much looks the same except for the clothes so i dont see why people are hating on this design. it looks fine to me

Posted by mk111

@nightfang: That design looks awesome on the cover, I love it. But the interior looks awful. Why, DC?

love greg pak's hulkm maybe it'll be similar

Posted by TeamUnitedNerds

I absolutely hate Doomsday as a villain, and I don't think Pak is a good enough writer to do anything good with him, so I'll skip this one

Posted by entropy_aegis

Hate Doomsday,HATE HATE him,he's a ridiculous plot device.But Pak's story definitely looks like it's worth checking out.I really like how Pak gives his interviews/teases,he's made me interested in a character that I've hated for years.

Doomsday looks like the Grey Hulk wearing Skeleton armor. Hey that's what I see :/

Posted by Pokeysteve

Hopefully can get a better handle on is power levels this time even if he looks ridiculous. I know this guy who can recommend a good doctor for those arm...

Posted by mattydeNero

I am excited to read about the Doomsday of the N52 universe. I am also stoked because I just now realized by birthday is on a Wednesday this year.

Posted by Eternal19

Yet more evidence on how the new 52 has ruined so many previously established good charecters

Doomsday was never a good character.

I don't Ike the look

Horrible.

@undeadpool: hahahahahaha his head hasn't been eating any spinach.

Edited by deaditegonzo

Oh god... it looks like the love child of Doomday, Solomon Grundy and Grey Hulk

Pretty much. Where are the huge bone spurs?! And his face lacks personality.

Posted by Xeno_Seeker

i agree that the shoes are unnecessary, but he looks pretty awesome. i'm sure he would look alot cooler in an action pose or something. and his backstory is pretty sweet. a boogie man made up to scare kryptonians.

Edited by guttridgeb

Not the biggest fan of this design but: Greg Pak = sold

Edited by Mega_spidey01

he looks badass and sort of scary looking !

Posted by Chibio

I dislike his design. Too much of a fat brute. A pity.

Edited by TDK_1997

His arms are strange but he looks cool.

Posted by Antonio_Blackheart

I like the look

Edited by sinestro_GL

This only makes me sad. Overall, I've had no problems with the new 52...but I'm not a fan of changing some of the back stories or reintroducing supporting characters.

He looks like something sculpted out of the old Doomsday's throw-up.

I think the 7-year old who heads DC's character designs should be fired, they are obviously drinking on the job ...
