Steel Fights Doomsday in January

Can Steel beat the beast who killed Superman?

DC's the Source recently reported that this January, Steel will return to square off against the monster known as Doomsday. As you may know, Doomsday was the creature that killed Kal-El in the Death of Superman storyline.
 
The storyline will be entitled Reign of Doomsday, and Doomsday will return to Metropolis. Steel seems to be the only hero who can stop him, even though Steel is human once again. 
 
All of this will take place in January in Steel #1. The splash page on the right is drawn by Ed Benes, and he will be doing the interior art while Steve Lyons writes the book.
 
For me, I have Fond Memories of the Death of Superman. It was one of my favorite story lines growing up, and more recently, I reviewed the Return of Superman in its entirety. Steel is a great character who has received a bit of the shaft since Countdown to Final Crisis, and it will be great to see him back in action as a normal human, no super-powers here. Who else is excited for the return of Steel in his own series?

I'm afraid not...Steel has no chance unless he has the Entropy Aegis...

Pooptastic movie aside, this is actually interesting.  Wonder how it will play out.

I used to think Doomsday was awesome. I used to think a lot of things.

1993 all over again. Eradicator will be fighting him too.

Part 1:  STEEL #1  
Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37 
Part 3:
 JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #55 
Part 4:
 SUPERBOY #6 
Part 5:  … ????
 

 I think this thing will end in Action Comics #900 hopefully something good happens to Superman and not just a meaningless promotion.

OK, that is some funny right there, I don't care who you are.   
 
Aw, but still I think it will be a good battle despite Steel being seriously outgunned.  It could be a fun ride.

So they're going to try and make Doomsday into a credible/capable threat again? Thank god. 
 
Got tired of seeing him get punked.

Why does DC hate Steel? I mean killing him off in the first issue of his new series. We all know he's gonna die in this fight.

Will Superman put his walkathon off and fight Doomsday.

Posted by elayem98

so the most powerful man on earth died by this guy, and a regular human in a metal suit is supposed to have a chance?

Posted by RMurray

Well, at least he put pants on.

Posted by Icarusflies

I know lots of people are going to disagree with me, but it's time to retire Doomsday. There is nothing of substance he can do. He began an era by killing Superman, but he can't really go from there. What's he going to do? Kill a few B-list heros? Rampage a bit? You can't really give him character development, and no matter what he does it will be inferior to when he killed the Man of Steel. 
 
Let Doomsday fade away into limbo.

It's not the first issue of his series, it's a One-Shot.

I'm more excited about when Doomsday crashes through Outsiders in February. My favorite superhero team Vs. the monster who killed Superman? And Eradicator is on that team? It's gonna be awesome.

Actually a friend of mine had a better idea for Part 5. Who else fought Doomsday during his big first appearance? The JLI. Who currently has a limited series that'll be wrapping up right as Reign of Doomsday hits? Who totally deserves to get an ongoing once their limited series ends because their limited series is the best Brightest Day tie-in? How awesome would it be to start of that ongoing with the conclusion to The Reign of Doomsday? 
JLI/Generation Lost. Think about it. 
 
Also, Action Comics should stick with Luthor for a while. It's been phenomenal.

i don't think the people at weight watchers will let superman call off the walkathon due to contract agreements...haha....
Posted by Burnstar1230

Ummm, what's the point of trying to take on Doomsday alone when he can just sqeeze onto Steel until he pops out of his armor in bloody, fleshy goo.

this should be interesting.  It's gonna change the battle pages now, thats for sure.

No, it'll be so big, that it'll skip right over 4 AND 5. It'll be World War 6! 
 
Not to mention there was already a 'World War III' before Black Adam's, but it wasn't that great.
Edited by cbishop

<yawn> If anything happens besides Doomsday peeling Steel like a banana, it will cheapen the death of Superman...more than Superman coming back from said death, and more than him being killed by some new, never-heard-of monster, instead of an established villain.  I do not see how this could possibly be an interesting story. 
 
(and the bike shorts look kind of dumb)

@cbishop: Steel IS totally going to get curbstomped. This is only the beginning of a bigger Doomsday story.

If the war got that big, then the humans should just leave Earth and hope Doomsday dies of old age or something, lol. Wait who really started WWIII, if it wasn't B.A., do you mean the Our Worlds at War event?

Well War of the Green Lanterns is starting about the same time so…. 
 
No, I mean, DC's had 2 stories called World War III. The first one was in JLA

Oh, I see what you mean, anyway I hope this story puts Doomsday back in the spotlight and reminds people why they should fear him more then Darkseid.

Doomsday already killed Steel once. How many times does a person have to get an ass whoopin before they learn?
