Doomsday gets a NEW look in his New Life (Preview Pages)

#1 Edited by DEGRAAF (7870 posts) - - Show Bio

I dont think i liek the new look but i like the face. I am willing to give this new look a chance, Doomsday seems to have gained enough intelligence to speak and comprehend, if he was actually asking around for Steel. I dont think Doomsday should be able to be injustred by Steels Hammer unless his suit gives him the strength of Superman and the hammer is made of a Kryptonian metal 
 

Part 1: STEEL #1
Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37
Part 3: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #55
Part 4: SUPERMAN/BATMAN ANNUAL #5
Part 5: SUPERBOY #6
Part 6: ???


What do you all think of the new Doomsday? 

 

 


 


Here’s a few words from DC Executive Editor Eddie Berganza about Reign of Doomsday

“Doomsday is back - and he’s hunting down each of the four characters that rose from his first strike on Earth: Steel, Superboy, The Eradicator and Cyborg Superman. Something about those four has drawn him back… And nothing is getting in his way, not even the JLA. That’s all I’ll say for now!”

@DEGRAAF:

Is the Steel series a one shot or new ongoing?

Hmmm it looks nice. I'll be willing to give it a chance, but it seems that its like he's wearing armor. And when has the Ultimate ever needed armor? Still, I'll give it a chance.

well accroding to the previews, it is armor but it seems to be attached or inplace of his bone armor from previous versions and the armor has the same healing capabilities as Doomsday has so i am assuming the armor is a part of him and now makes up his protruding armor and his bones

@Jake Fury: @DEGRAAF: I checked it again. I was mistaken, it is an one-shot.

@ComicMan24:
I loved John Henry in 52. I was hoping he was getting an ongoing.

#10 Posted by ComicMan24 (147042 posts) - - Show Bio
@Jake Fury: He had one in the past if I am not mistaken again lol Yeah, I would like to see him with his own series.

@ComicMan24:
I'd like to see all of my favorites from 52 get their own ongoings. 
 
Steel & Natasha 
Renee Montoya 
Batwoman (she's got one) 
Animal Man 
Adam Strange 
Black Adam/isis/Osiris 
 
I'd be a happy fanboy.

I dig the new look. Anything Superman-like and I'm so there ;)

Unfortunately Steel #1 will be a one-shot. And wow, I had no idea the crossover will go through Superman/Batman (with Robinson writing it as I've just read) as well. Good to know.

#15 Posted by DEGRAAF (7870 posts) - - Show Bio

what i want to know is why the steel armor?
#16 Posted by MrDirector786 (43399 posts) - - Show Bio

It looks pretty cool to me.

#17 Posted by Jake Fury (18116 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks great.

I don't really like it. Artists just can't draw Doomsday correctly. He was cool in Hunter and Prey and Gog wars, but other than that, he is ugly.

Doomsday wearing armor...kinda like giving a rocket launcher a grenade launcher attachment.
Totally unnecessary yet all the more dangerous and fun.

Yea im curious how they got metal to become his bone in his genes. If its man made metal its useless, if its of alien origin stronger then then man made metals and kryptonian metals than it makes him that much stronger

yea but every time he comes back he could look unrecognizably different if they wanted him too and it would make sense

I predict that the last issue will be one of JMS' Superman books, and there's only one of two appropriate ways for that to end: 

  1. Doomsday rages up to Superman until he realizes that Superman is more interested in walking the Earth, shrugs his shoulders, and then go back home.
  2. Doomsday pulls JMS into the comic, then suplexes him repeatedly.

@Primmaster64:
yea, i downloaded all the promo pics they've had to this Reign of Doomsday and not  one of them Show Doomsday with armor. Even for the Steel issue, the promo pics or whatever you want to call it had bone protusions coming off of him not armor ones. 
 
I just thought of this and its probably wrong but im curious if the steel adaption was just for Steel. Im curious if instead of dying, he adapts to his opponents by copying them and altering hmself.  
 
Steel had armor so Doomsday had armor 
Superboy's TK and flight, maybe Doomsday will have some version of those.  
 
He would basically be Doomsday with Amazo's ability (Cartoon version)

LMAO Hahahahaha! 
 
Still though this is interesting and it's Doomsday back to basics but like another person said with a cheat code lol

Daring Superboy to knock his teeth out, btw is it just me or does he look like a spiky Pitt?
#39 Edited by DEGRAAF (7870 posts) - - Show Bio

so far it looks like my guess was right. Doomsday seems to be able to duplicate the abilities of the people he is fighting. 
 
 
During this issue he duplicates
Halo's abilities. Im not sure if one of her abilities is to open portals but he seemed to be able to do that in the end. 
 
 or at least thats what it looked like. The other possibilities are 
He absorbed her shots at him, or it is a new power that looks similar to hers, which IMO is to much of a quencedence
