how do you guys want doomsday to be like in new 52?

#1 Posted by jobbernos (1522 posts) - - Show Bio

i think they should change him up a bit so he wont be considered a walking pis anymore. give him a brain at least so he can think and speak but not too smart just smart enough so he can understand things like how he was in the justice league animated series. change up his looks and clothes i dont want him wearing those hulk like shorts. and change his adaption power where he comes back immune to whatever killed him cause its hard to work with a character like that. let him have more villains to fight besides the justice league and let him have an objective so he can fully become a character.

so do you guys like this? anything you want to add in what i said? or do you want to keep him the same? or switch it up your way?

I like it. I also thought that maybe Doomsday could have some actual allies, or at least one. It would be pretty hard to do since he hates all life pretty much, but not impossible.

I believe Doomsday is definitely in store for the New 52, he was kind of hinted in Superman #0. I think they could definitely make him a challenge for superman in every way, not just physical. He can also be A more emotional character. His story is sad.

I'd like him to be nonexistent.

Doomsday is awesome, so I'm kinda wary at having him appear in New 52, since some other characters I like haven't been so great since the reboot.

With that said, on one hand, I think it would be a good idea to make him more intelligent, like in that one comic arc where he turned good temporarily, and saved helped Superman fight Gog.

On the other hand, I don;t want the writers to make him weaker, and if he gains emotions, that is probably what would happen. IMO, just because he gains emotions shouldn't mean that he should get nerfed.

I just feel after killing Superman where else do you go with the character? I would have prefered it if DC had retired Doomsday after that.

Well, I guess the next logical step...would be to kill Batman.

LOL, just kidding, but wouldn't that be a story...

Is Super-Doomsday in Action Comics 16 any relation to pre-New 52 Doomsday?

@Nightwing28710: No Super-Doom is not doomsday

I prefer a super smart Doomsday as smart as brainiac 5 with evolution powers similar to Nemesis Kid, Duplicate Boy, Mimic, Super Adaptoid, Darwin.

I'd like him to stay true to his New 52 self. I'd also like to see Doomslayer at some point, he was cool.

I don't know. Considering how terrible Lobdell is, and that Morrison will leave before issue 19, I don't think I want to see him

How about not exist?
