Why did Doomsday lose strength after Hunter and Prey?
it seems to me that he got weaker is there an explanation for this or s it just a famed retconn from another writer...because after Hunter and Prey he was still stronger than supes with mother Box now he seems weaker than supes which really irritates me....
Doomsday lost strength after H/P because the writers knew there would just simply be nowhere for him to go after that if they just kept him getting more and more powerful. After all, with the power of reactive adaptation at his proposal, he could theoretically challenge almost all adversaries and then defeat them. Where does one draw the line? The Presence? The Voice? The Overmonitor? He had to be drummed down thereafter in much the same way Silver Age Superman needed to be depowered as well. Can't have unbeatable characters in comics..you just can't.
