Villain Month will hit our wallets extra hard in September and one of the exciting announcements is that Doomsday will get his very own issue. This will be the first time the man who punched Superman really, really, reaaaallllly hard will appear in the post-Flashpoint universe and today DC has offered a better look at his updated character design. If I had to take a guess, I'd say it seems like this version of the character likes to keep trophies.

"But who is Doomsday? In The New 52, the legends surrounding this character have become stories told to terrify Kryptonians. Nobody knows who created him, where he comes from, or even dares to utter his name louder than in a whisper. But are the various myths about what the Doomsday creature is real? Was he really let loose on an army? And if nobody knows the truth behind this villain’s origin, is there really a way to stop him?"

Written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Brett Booth, Doomsday's solo issue will go on sale September 25. Are you going to pick this one up, Viners?

Not a big fan of the new look, because of the arms.

I at least like the whole 'myth' behind Doomsday that the Kryptonian's created. The 'trophies' that Doomsday keeps is pretty cool though.

Man I wish he had that cool but weird white patches of hair. Death of superman should have taken best superman story...

Why? of all the things to bring from pre 52, why would DC this choose this overused donkey?

The great DC cash grab. Yawn, I'll pass.

Maybe in another 6 months they will do 52 sidekicks each with chromium variant covers.

Is new doomsday made of wet clay? What's wrong with his arms?

I actually wouldn't mind that, it may be the chance to bring back donna and wally.

Might pick this up. Those arms though...

lol would somebody break the fingers of whoever the hell is redesigning characters. Everyone doesn't need an upgrade (well downgrade) to their character designs.

He seems even more 90's now. O.O

Seriously those arms and that tiny head, man, just wow.

He's just missing oversized guns

Maybe he'll adapt so that he has the power of gun arms.

I mean if DC's gonna do this they might as well go all out.

looks so terrible

#19 Edited by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub (5945 posts) - - Show Bio

Ridiculous. A lot of the new designs have been shit in the New 52.

#20 Posted by PymsEgo (17 posts) - - Show Bio

Reasons I dont like it: 1. Disney squid beard 2. Ugly (and unnecesary) rain clogs

3. Belted bike shorts pulled halfway up to his pecs 4. ridiculously oversized forearms

5. Hands (without sweet knuckle spikes) that could hold 4 or 5 of his miniscule heads

I liked Superdoom Better

Well at least we have an actor ready to play him in a love action, low budget movie

I think the arms are so big so as to distract the reader so they don't notice his massive feet.

#23 Edited by MrDirector786 (43755 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it looks alright but the arms are way too big.

#24 Posted by XImpossibruX (5531 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh god... it looks like the love child of Doomday, Solomon Grundy and Grey Hulk

Looks Horrible

#26 Posted by ectoborge (209 posts) - - Show Bio

Damn looks better than ever. Hope this new Doomsday is more than meets the eye.

#27 Posted by ARMIV2 (9149 posts) - - Show Bio

I see it and think of a pre-Doomsday Doomsday, like an alpha or test version.

This isn't doomsday it's his ugly cousin.

#30 Posted by RockyIII (18 posts) - - Show Bio

Horrible design for all the reasons everyone has mentioned on these comments. DC should be ashamed and embarrased for even considering this garbage as a design option in the first place. I will not pay even a penny for a comic with this character in it.

#31 Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub (5945 posts) - - Show Bio

Damn his arms are so massive his body can't deal with the weight of them, hence why one of them looks like its tearing off. Fail. Dumbday!

#32 Edited by jumpstart55 (2697 posts) - - Show Bio

He,s actually hunched over, so his arms appear bigger then they actually are.

He looks sick, i am definitely digging the new design.

#33 Edited by The_Tree (8440 posts) - - Show Bio

He just looks like a rock covered Abomination, I prefer the old design.

Perspective still seems crazy out of wack. His feet are still nearly as massive and his head is still tiny.

Maybe the design could look better with a less wonky image but it really doesn't really make any interesting modifications to the characters old design IMO.

he looks like crap. not intimidating at all...

#37 Posted by Birthright (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks cool in my opinion

#38 Posted by crassh76 (5 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks like a cross between Gorilla Grodd and Lobo. I guess it will take some getting used to.

Figures, I just got a half sleeve tattoo of an old Doomsday/Superman battle with some bio around it.

#39 Edited by TheUnN4med (86 posts) - - Show Bio

He's a monster, why he can't he have those arms? Anyways, I like this re-desing,

#40 Edited by Hawkguy (617 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll pick it up, although he looks kind of weird its funny to see people almost raging on here. Who knows, maybe it'll look awesome in action

#41 Posted by ComicStooge (16478 posts) - - Show Bio

I actually like it.

#42 Posted by SavageDragon (2257 posts) - - Show Bio

Not really a fan to be honest.

Personally my issue is more with the head, it's so small that is makes everything look messed up and not in a unsettling or interesting way.

It's the big reason the arms stick out as so strange.

#50 Posted by ThorBoy (160 posts) - - Show Bio

Why would he needs shoes? Doomsday never had a good look. This version is junk. But I'm planning on buying it anyways
