A Superman from an alternate reality. From Action Comics 9 I think. He was a corporate creation to be all things but he went bad.

I don't think superdoom is going to be the new doomsday, I believe he is already established. In The New 52 Supergirl where she fights the four "world killers" the leader explains that they are "Kryptonian Engineered" and she then explains that there was a fifth "world killer" (in the comic there's a typo and she says Word Killer) but his pod was opened before they were woken up. i believe that this is doomsday, since then theres has been no further mention of this fifth "World Killer"

could this be the 5th Killer of Worlds?

I thought it was interesting when in Superman #0 Jor-El says, "What are you telling me--this Eradicator is the founder of some Doomsday cult?" Now, it's likely that there's no connection here between the type of doomsday he's talking about (destruction of Krytpon) and Doomsday the character, but I thought it was interesting how the word was made bold. Although, maybe there is some sort of parallel...doomsday (destruction) of Krypton and Doomsday (destruction) of Superman. Maybe this is a foreshadowing, I dunno...

I really doubt so, considering the fact that Superdoom comes from an parallel earth.

@DEGRAAF: An evil Superman from a parallel earth and the guy in the cover above. He showed up in Action Comics 9.

I always thought Kara was the fifth World Killer.

I think that the New 52 Doomsday should be a cross between the old Doomsday, the Doomsday of All-Star Superman, and The Hulk, with someone (Luthor, ARGUS, the society, etc.) having created the Doomsday serum, which is then used on Jimmy Olsen. He has no control of his mind as Doomsday, goes on to fight Superman. Thoughts?

I've read Grant Morrison's action comics several times, and since I have no idea what was going on in a single panel of it, I'm just going to say no. Personally, I don't like Doomsday, though. He isn't a character, he's a plot device, and getting him actual development will almost be an impossible task

All-Star Superman had a doomsday?

I dont hate the idea except for making it Jimmy Olsen. Actually i like the original origin of Doomsday

Yeah this is crap They should have never allowed for him to look like that. Thats just going to confuse people even more.

Here is what the REAL Doomsday will look like in the NEW 52

@degraaf:

Intresting, where did you get the Doomsday picture? He looks cool, just missing the sharp "knuckle-claws" on his hands.

#21 Edited by DEGRAAF (7939 posts) - - Show Bio

@bruxae: lol i didnt even notice that until you pointed it out. It looks like he could still have the bone claw knuckles sort of if you look at his right hand.

I got it here... http://www.comicsalliance.com/2013/06/05/doomsday-dc-comics-villains-month-greg-pak-interview-batman-superman/

He will be the villain for the Superman Batman comic. I like the lines of spikes going up his arms. I kinda question the spiral horns on the side of his head (seems like a nod to Magog). Im also glad they got rid of all the protrusions on his back so much. He was starting to look like a hedgehog

@degraaf:

Ah yes, im not a huge fan of the massive amounts off spikes I just like the ones on the hands and knees alot, when he hits with them it just gives that extra feeling of "Ouch" that you dont get from regular punches. Like this:

I was thinking about skipping Batman/Superman since I dont care for the combo so much (love them individually though) but if Doomsday is gonna be in I guess I have to pick them up now. :) The horns is a bit to much yes, I also dont really want his eyes to glow, makes him look to cheesy.

Yay, Doomsdays back. Forget SuperDoom or whatever, the real villain is in the house!

#24 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (6361 posts) - - Show Bio

Doomsday's back? HALLELUJAH!

Anyways, I'd prefer Doomsday's appearence to look a lot like this:

@spideyivydaredevilfan26: Really? You like the video game version (DCUO I Believe) of Doomsday? I like the Injustice Version much better

That version is really good, but I like DCUO's more. Had more of a monsturous look to it. And I LOVE the horns and arm-blades. :)

I liked the metal version in the recent Superman series (prior to the New 52)

Not sure if anyone has seen this but Brett Booth posted a image for Doomsday in the New 52 on his blog. Might not be the final design, but he's confirmed that he's working on the book featuring the character

OH SNAP, Doomsday is coming back to pawn and make Superman fans whine, "Wah, Doomsday is too powerful and hacked!!!"

#31 Posted by DEGRAAF (7939 posts) - - Show Bio

Bump

So can anyone enlighten me on the origin of this new Doomsday and what he is like?
