Super Power Explained: How Do Doomsday’s Powers Work?

Flashback FM


IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

In Super Power Explained: How Do Superman’s Powers Work?, we attempted to explain Superman’s powers within Byrne’s framework. Now, we attempt to answer a popular question about his deadliest nemesis, Doomsday.

PHYSIOLOGICALLY, DOOMSDAY IS A SOLAR BATTERY

Superman: The Man of Steel (1992) #18. DC Comics.

DEATH OF SUPERMAN

Perhaps, the most difficult question in all of comicdom: How do Doomsday’s powers work? Though there have been multiple explanations for Superman’s fantastic super powers under the yellow sun, there have been few for his nemesis’.

When Doomsday first appeared in Superman: The Man of Steel (1992) #18, very little was known of it. To begin, it escaped the bowels of the Earth and dug his way through to Earth’s surface. Then, it began its rampage across America; and Superman and the JLA had to stop it.

After the JLA was defeated, Superman was the only one left to stand against the monster. Soon, it became clear the creature was a foe of overwhelming power, and only an all-out Superman could stand a chance.

Heroically, the battle led to the Death of Superman in Metropolis, who stopped the monster.

DOOMSDAY’S ORIGIN STORY

A few years later, Doomsday creator Dan Jurgens gave fans an origin story about the creature. During the mini-series called Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey, we learn of the Legend of Krypton. Originally, the creature is a creation of geneticist, Bertron, on early Krypton.

Through forced evolution, the baby that evolved to become Doomsday was cloned and harvested after exposure to its harsh conditions. Finally, it was born: The Ultimate!

Particularly, with its powers of reactive evolution and immortality, Doomsday resurrects from death and evolves abilities beyond what killed it.

In the comic, the monster appeared every bit as ferocious and even powerful enough to put Darkseid near death. In the end, an amped Superman and Waverider triumphed over the monster by sending him to the end of the universe.

Since Doomsday is from Krypton, we theorize that he is also a solar battery similar to Superman. Though his rocky exterior precludes the existence of any organs, he may possess the ability of solar absorption through his rocky skin. Let’s explain its powers below.

HOW DOOMSDAY’S POWERS WORK

WHY DOOMSDAY IS AN ORGANIC LIFE-FORM

1. GRAPHITE IS A NATURAL MATERIAL WITH THE HIGHEST MELTING POINT ON EARTH

In Superman/Batman (2004) #10, Superman vaporizes an army of Doomsday animates with his heat vision. Though we rated the feat Stellar-Level in Energy Projection, let’s explain Doomsday’s durability.

In fact, H/P Doomsday withstood an explosion equal to a million nuclear blasts in his fight against Superman on Calaton. Indeed, Doomsday’s rocky exterior and his solid mass precludes the need for organs.

Moreover, we theorize that Doomsday’s rocky exterior is due to metamorphism and may be composed of graphite. In fact, we can explain Doomsday’s incredible durability, adaptation and controlled bone growth as results of this material.

When the creature was repeatedly exposed to the harsh environment on Krypton and its deadly creatures, it is possible that his body underwent metamorphism or even a process similar to the formation of igneous rocks in magma.

Since the primary feature of organic life is that it is carbon-based, it is possible that at least 99 percent of Doomsday’s body is composed of only carbon.

Certainly, the exact composition of his body is unknown but his rocky exterior suggests his skin is composed of the hardest materials on Earth, probably a hard and rocky material such as graphite. Importantly, graphite can have a melting point of 4000 degrees Celsius.

Also, we know graphite has out of space origins, from meteor deposits. Hence, it is possible for the material to have existed on prehistoric Krypton.

Moreover, Doomsday’s reactive evolution and controlled bone growth may be a metamorphism as a result of injury.

As the Batman v. Superman video suggests, injury seems to trigger this process of bone formation similar to igneous rock formation due to increased pressure and temperature inside the Earth.

2. THE PROCESS OF METAMORPHISM REQUIRES 75000 PSI IN THE EARTH'S MANTLE
Doomsday. DC Comics.

Generally speaking, Doomsday’s boundless super-strength is a result of extreme natural conditions. Since Doomsday was created on prehistoric Krypton, his physiology and appearance reflect the conditions of the era.

Moreover, we know the conditions inside the Earth’s mantle reflect more or less the harsh conditions on prehistoric Earth. Similarly, we theorize that Doomsday’s boundless super-strength and reactive evolution are suited to a more prehistoric environment.

In How does Graphite form: from pressure & temperature, we learn that the process of metamorphism requires 75000 pounds per square inch. In terms of force, that’s 6178474747.5 Newtons over Doomsday’s estimated 12 meter squared surface area.

Given that the pressure at the core of the Earth is 360 GigaPascals, Doomsday can reach Planetary-Level of Super Strength. However, his battles with Superman and Darkseid suggest the creature may have an unlimited amount of strength.

Moreover, since Superman has normal strength on Krypton, the gravity on Krypton has been estimated to be at least a 100G. In fact, it means under Sol, Doomsday is at least a 100 times stronger. Definitely, a Stellar to Solar System-Level of Super Strength.

In fact, his immortality and reactive evolution may be due to a molecular or nuclear bonding to natural forces and processes like volcanoes, geothermal vents or even earthquakes. In a sense, he is a force of nature.

WHY DOOMSDAY IS A SOLAR BATTERY

THE PHOTONUCLEIC EFFECT GRANTS ORGANIC MATTER NEW PROPERTIES
In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #3, Superman manages to permanently stop Doomsday. DC Comics

In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #3, Superman manages to permanently stop Doomsday. Using Waverider’s Temporal Transporter, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe killing it. Fortunately, Waverider recovers from Doomsday’s attack and saves Superman from death, transporting him back to the present.

In some respects, Doomsday may function as a solar battery or a reactor. Previously, we theorized that Superman functioned similarly. At the same time, the basis for Doomsday’s powers may be what is termed the Photonucleic Effect.

Under a class-G Yellow Star, Doomsday’s carbon atoms may have the ability to absorb sunlight granting them additional properties. As a result, the Kryptonian creature may display incredible abilities. In fact, early Krypton may have been under a yellow star.

Visit our article on Doomsday vs Hulk.

Certainly, Doomsday’s super-strength, super speed and immortality may be effects of the photonucleic effect. Though he has no cells, his solid mass does comprise of carbon atoms that have the potential to develop the abilities of a Kryptonian under a yellow sun.

ANSWER:

Doomsday’s rocky exterior and solid mass are the result of metamorphism on prehistoric Krypton.
Though it is debatable whether The Ultimate’s body is composed of genes, the force of nature derives its boundless strength and immortality from universal forces and the photonucleic effect.

THE TWO STRONGEST MONSTERS IN ANY UNIVERSE

Database Comics.

In today’s article, we compare two fighters that are the cream of the crop in terms of strength, power, rage… and yes, fighting!

Incredibly, let’s introduce the battle to end all battles: Doomsday, the Ultimate vs The Incredible Hulk. Though these two monsters have yet to face in a crossover, fans have salivated at the thought of a vicious brawl.

Really, both are an A-list hero and a B-list villain in their respective universes. Namely, the legendary Doomsday is famous for being the monster who killed Superman. For his part, Hulk is the Strongest Avenger and only keeps getting stronger.

Though both monsters have evolved multiple forms, let’s compare their strength in terms of their strongest power levels. Hence, we compare Hunter/Prey (HP) Doomsday with Immortal Hulk (IMH).

FORMIDABILITY

Generally, formidability is the ability to compete, match and defeat a foe despite overwhelming odds. Usually, formidability indicates a warrior’s ability to defeat a stronger, more powerful and more resourceful enemy.

For this reason, it is almost interchangeable with the Fighting Skills Level. For example, this explains why Batman is able to defeat Killer Croc or Bane who are in fact stronger or more powerful.

Using tactics, training, technology, resources and intel, Batman is usually able to take on more powerful opponents.

Before we rank our two heroes, let’s list some rules.

  1. First, the hero should be able to consistently defeat opponents above their strength class or power level.
  2. In terms of power level or fighting skills, they should have few or no weaknesses.
  3. Consistently, they should face quality opponents that are at least able to destroy a city.
  4. Finally, they should have fewer limitations in power, strength, ability or intelligence.

First, we will compare them in Strength Class, Weaknesses, Quality Opponents and Limitations. At the top, you can check their Formidability Scores. To note, all scores are rated out of a 100.

1. STRENGTH CLASS

Generally, both H/P Doomsday and IMH possess a Boundless-Level of Super Strength. As matter of fact, this means they have an infinite amount of Super-Strength and can become as strong as necessary.

In the case of H/P Doomsday, his Super Strength is more properly speaking a form of Reactive Evolution and Resurrection. In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #1, after Darkseid fells Doomsday with his Omega Effect, Doomsday come back to life.

When Doomsday comes back to life, he evolves an adaptation to Darkseid’s Omega Effect which can no longer harm him. And what we estimate to be a Universal-Level of Super-Strength. Theoretically, there is no upper limit to his Super-Strength.

On the other hand, Immortal Hulk, also has the novel power of Resurrection. In fact, he theoretically cannot die. Or in better words, he resurrects from every death. In the first issue, IMH resurrects from a gunshot wound to the head and finds he can smell lies.

In effect, IMH is immortal and can only be killed by the being who is the source of his power, the One-Below-All. Really, Immortal Hulk has Boundless Super-Strength since he can defeat Gods or Abstracts.

ADVANTAGE: TIE

2. WEAKNESSES

For the most part, Doomsday’s weakness is properly speaking Universal Forces. In the comic, Doomsday is felled by Darkseid’s Omega Effect. Because of the OE’s powers and its relation to the chaotic side of the Source, the Omega Effect is certainly a power of entropy.

Really, the only way to defeat H/P Doomsday is to subject him to the powers of entropy. At the end of the comic, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe with Waverider’s help, ending his murderous rampage.

In some sense, Immortal Hulk is protected by a Divine Enchantment. As a host of the One-Below-All, who rules Hell, he comes back from every death. Though he can be wounded, pierced and even killed, he always resurrects. Effectively, his Weakness lasts as long as the Divine Enchantment.

Generally, though both warriors are evenly matched in strength, IMH may lack the specific power necessary to finally overcome H/P Doomsday’s onslaught. As Doomsday evolves, he may land the killing blow that severes his connection to the Green Door.

ADVANTAGE: IMMORTAL HULK

3. QUALITY OPPONENTS

Generally, Immortal Hulk has a decisive advantage in this department. Over a more developed series, IMH faces multiple opponents such as Sasquatch, the Avengers and even the One-Below-All.

In Immortal Hulk Vol 1 13, Immortal Hulk faces the One-Below-All and his horde of monsters in Hell. Importantly, he has to deal with his father who disowns him as a child of evil. Decisively, Hulk swats him away dispersing at the same time, the One-Below-All.

In the Marvel hierarchy, the One-Above-All, is the God of the Marvel Multiverse. Oppositely, the One-Below-All is below and is unthinking monster that needs gamma-ray powered hosts in the Marvel multiverse.

Certainly, IMH’s Quality Opponents are God or Abstract-Level.

ADVANTAGE: IMMORTAL HULK

4. LIMITATIONS

Though H/P Doomsday is more limited due to his lack of intelligence, his Boundless Super-Strength, Reactive Evolution, Resurrection and Universal-Level Durability make up for them.

For his part, IMH is only limited by his Power Dependency as a gamma-ray host of One-Below-All.

In general, since both characters are monsters, Intelligence is not an isssue.

ADVANTAGE: IMMORTAL HULK

VERDICT:

Though Immortal Hulk is more powerful and can defeat a God or Abstract, the outcome is either a stalemate or a win for Doomsday who can only be defeated by entropy.

And that’s our ranking! Don’t forget to leave comments if you liked the DC vs Marvel.

POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “Great read. It came in great quality and I read it all in one sitting. Obviously there is parts that come after it that you can order as well. I read this yo prepare a bit for “Batman V Superman” along with “The Dark Knight Returns”. They are both classics.”

NEGATIVE REVIEW

There are 23 negative global ratings. One negative customer review pointed the one-dimensional plot: “The Death of Superman is the victim of the decade it came out in. The 90s were full of big ‘event’ storylines that dared to change the status-quo but then just back tracked once they got their money. That’s the problem with this book. It wears it’s title with pride but there’s nothing more to it.

The premise of the book is this: evil creature dubbed Doomsday goes on a rampage, defeating Justice Leaguers (more like B-Leaguers) so it falls to Superman to take on this unstoppable behemoth. You’re probably thinking that’s only the first part, right? Nope, that’s the whole story and it drags it out so slowly… I have no problem with Doomsday, somehow knowing less is better in this case but it is a shame we only find out his origins in later comics.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Paperback format available.
  • Best seller.
  • Modern Age story.

Though Jurgens’ art may seem exaggerated with a lack of perspective and propotion at times, his characters are all distinctive and come to life with powerful facial expressions. Witness an all-out Superman unleash a destructive blast of heat vision to protect Lois Lane and the citizens of Metropolis. Check out Jurgens’ art book You Can Draw: Marvel Characters.

IN SUPERVILLAINS

THE FIRST COSTUME WAS THE SUPERMAN COSTUME

In ‘Adventures of Superman’ (1990) #466, Superman fails to save the Excalibur crew. Originally, Cyborg Superman was an astronaut named Hank Henshaw. In fact, he was on the Lexcorp space shuttle called the Excalibur. Namely, the team consisted of Hank, his wife Terri, Steven and Jim Garrison. Caught in an accident caused by cosmic radiation, their bodies were destroyed.

Only their minds survived by creating themselves bodies. Tragically, Steven used pure cosmic radiation whereas Jim used rocks. Meanwhile, Hank’s body was decaying. On the other hand, Terri’s body was disappearing into an alternate dimension. However, Superman failed to save them and all astronauts died, except Terri. Despondently, Superman blamed their accident on his tossing the Eradicator into the sun. But, Terri confirmed their accident occurred before.

CYBORG SUPERMAN, THE MAN OF TOMORROW

In ‘Adventures of Superman’ (1990) #468, Hank survived. Apparently, he transferred his mind into Lexcorp’s mainframe. When he appeared as a robot before Terri, the shock killed her. Strangely, Hank beamed himself onto Superman’s Kryptonian Birthing matrix orbiting Earth. Then, fashioning a space craft, he left Earth to learn about the universe. Soon, Hank would blame Superman for his wife’s death. In ‘Adventures of Superman’ (1990) #500, Cyborg Superman appears in Metropolis. Moreover, he is wearing the Superman costume.

In ‘Superman’ (1993) #79, Cyborg Superman stops a terrorist attack at the White House. According to White House scans, he is Superman’s genetic match. In the issue, Ron Tourpe, Clark Kent’s Daily Planet replacement is working on assignment. During the terrorist attack, Cyborg Superman withstands a barrage of energy blasts. Indeed, which Tourpe confirms the original Superman could not. Eventually, in “Reign of the Supermen,” Cyborg Superman would use Mongul and Warworld to destroy Coast City.

THE SECOND COSTUME WAS ON APOKOLIPS

In ‘Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey,’ Cyborg Superman resurfaces. Previously, at the end of “Reign of the Supermen,” Superman shattered Cyborg Superman’s body. So, he did by vibrating his left hand at an incredible speed. But, the cyborg survived having previously downloaded his consciousness on Doomsday’s back.

In ‘Superman/Doomsday’ #1, Cyborg Superman guides Doomsday’s lifeless body to Apokolips. On course to Apokolips, Captain Slaven encounters an asteroid floating in space. After a scan, there is no sign of organic life form. So, he orders the asteroid into his space freighter. Terrifyingly, the crew realizes it is Doomsday. When they try to dispose of the cargo, it is already too late. Horrifyingly, Doomsday slaughters them.

In 'Superman/Doomsday' (1994) #2, Cyborg Superman resurrects with an Apokoliptian exo-armor upgrade.

THE APOKOLIPTIAN EXO-ARMOR UPGRADE

In ‘Superman/Doomsday’ (1994) #2, Hank Henshaw has a costume upgrade. Finally, Doomsday lands on Apokolips by cargo ship. Immediately, the Ultimate slaughters the Apokoliptian army. In his resurrection, Cyborg Superman rebuilds his Kryptonian body and cybernetic parts. Here, he uses exo-armor from dead Apokoliptian soldiers.

Notably, the exo-armor upgrades Henshaw’s durability. Indeed, Cyborg Superman is able to withstand a full blast of heat vision from Superman. Even Darkseid’s Omega Effect has no effect. But at his peak, the Omega Force destroyed Cyborg Superman. At the end, Darkseid imprisons Cyborg Superman’s consciousness in a Father Box.

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey' (1994) #2, Cyborg Superman withstands Darkseid's Omega Beams.

THE THIRD COSTUME WAS THE GRANDMASTER COSTUME

In ‘Green Lantern’ (2007) #22, Cyborg Superman joins the Sinestro Corps. Previously, Henshaw led the Manhunters as Grandmaster. During the battle against the Green Lanterns, most of his organic body was destroyed. Now, the cyborg is being imprisoned on Oa. There, he is being questioned by the Guardians of the Universe. Particularly, about his knowledge of their secret: the 52 parallel universes of the DC multiverse. Surprisingly, the Sinestro Corps attacks the Green Lantern Corps. In addition, Superboy-Prime is freed from his sciencell.

Separately, and Cyborg Superman, they are transported to Qward in the Antimatter universe. After the attack, the Ion entity is ripped from Kyle Rayner’s heart. There, the cyborg is repaired and with them joins the Sinestro Corps. In ‘Tales Of The Sinestro Corps: Cyborg Superman’ (2007), Cyborg Superman finally defeats Superman. Sporting the Grandmaster costume, Henshaw has added durability and strength. And he is amped by the Yellow Lantern ring. Definitely, rocking the costume is one of Cyborg Superman’s best fashion moves.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


Really, “Superman: Doomed #1” is the most significant Superman comic in the New 52. Directly, it leads to the Doomsday Virus, Brainiac’s invasion and turmoil in Superman’s relationship with Wonder Woman. Indirectly, it sounds the end of New 52 Superman.

In fact, this comic is excellent for your collection. Indeed, you will definitely love the brutality of the action and the urgency of the art. Visually, the panels bleed into the next, succeeding each other. Moreover, the story-telling is narration by the main protagonist of the story: Superman.

This product has 2 global review ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5. There is a great satisfaction with the product: “Now this is the way you write a Superman man story! Have the Hero go up against an threat the world can not handle. An enemy no other cape hero can go up against…this is Superman at his finest!”

Overall, this comic was great.

Super Power Explained: Male And Female Warriors And Superheroes Ranked That Performed Best To Worst Against Doomsday

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Superman rips Doomsday in half in Smallville.
 

SUPER POWER

Variant Comics

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

DOOMSDAY’S REACTIVE ADAPTATION GRANTS IT UNIVERSAL-LEVEL DURABILITY

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey' (1994) #1, Doomsday faces the awesome might of Darkseid!

In “Super Power Explained: Is The Omega Effect, Universal Or Multiversal In Power Level?,” we rated Darkseid’s Omega Effect. In a few words, Darkseid’s Omega Effect is Universal Level since it managed to kill Doomsday. However, due to Doomsday’s reactive evolution, the monster survived the onslaught. Dangerously, it nearly fatally injured Darkseid. To rate the super power, we looked at the destruction of Doomsday at the end of Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey. To sum, it took the entropy at the end of the DC Universe to kill the monster.

On this list, let’s rank those heroes and incarnations that have performed best to worst against the Ultimate in battle. In addition, let’s list the relevant issues.

BEST: POST-CRISIS SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN/DOOMSDAY: HUNTER/PREY (1994) #3

In 'Superman/Doomsday: Hunter Prey #3' (1994), Doomsday is taken to the end of time by Superman and Waverider.

In Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey (1994) #3, Superman learns the origin of Doomsday from Waverider. 200,000 years ago, the Ultimate was born on Krypton from genetic engineering by a scientist named Bertron.

Despite Mother Box’s amps, Superman is no match for Doomsday. In effect, his reactive adaptation enables him to evolve to counter Superman’s attack. And, his power of immortality prevents Superman from killing him in the same way twice.

Nevertheless, using Waverider’s Temporal Transporter, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe. There, entropy effectively kills Doomsday. Then, a reconstituted Waverider transports Superman back to the present.

Clearly, one of Superman’s clearest victories. Here, Superman used both brawn and brain to put down the monster. Definitely, it belongs at the top of the list.

VISIT WIKI: SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN/BATMAN VOL 1 #10.

BEST: NEW 52 SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN: DOOMED (2014) #1

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Superman rips Doomsday in half in Smallville.

During the New 52, Doomsday resurfaced as a plague. Terrifyingly, the monster was stealing sentient life forces. To this end, it was in order to be powerful enough to fight Superman.

In Superman: Doomed (2014) #1, Superman and Wonder Woman hunted down the creature in Botswana. However, it spent its time teleporting around the Earth. In fact, it was corrupting all life in its vicinity with its toxins.

Eventually, Superman confronts the menace in India. Then, he takes the fight to outer space. On Venus, Superman destroys the monster with a blast of heat vision. Back in Smallville, the monster follows the Man of Steel. In a vicious attack, Superman rips Doomsday in half, ending the threat.

Clearly, one of the most decisive victories against Doomsday. Definitely, a Herculean effort.

IvaN The UnStoppable

GOOD: NEW 52 WONDER WOMAN, SUPERMAN: DOOMED (2014) #1

In 'Superman: Doomed' (2014) #1, Wonder Woman rumbles against Doomsday.

Previously, Doomsday held Wonder Woman on the ropes in Superman/Wonder Woman (2013) #1. Until Superman arrived on the scene. Then, Doomsday teleported away.

Similarly, in Round Two, the situation repeats in Superman: Doomed (2014) #1. But, this time, Wonder Woman performs better against the plague. With a strike of her sword, Wonder Woman pierces Doomsday’s thorax. As a result, the monster releases deadly poison. Though Wonder Woman is infected, she continues the fight.

As Doomsday attacks, he is blasted by a dose of heat vision. In the nick of time, Superman has arrived to save his girlfriend. Strangely, before Superman can take down the monster, Doomsday teleports away. Perhaps, in fear of the Kryptonian.

Definitely, a victory for the Power Couple.

GOOD: POST-CRISIS MAXIMA, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN (1992) #497

In 'Adventures of Superman' (1992) #497, Maxima battles Doomsday.

Promptly, it is time for a Maxima revival. Post-Crisis, the Queen of Almerac is a heavy hitter of the JLA. During “The Death of Superman,” Maxima and the Man of Steel were the only JLAers left standing against Doomsday.

A warrior-born, Maxima performed impressively against the creature. Though, her fierceness and her battle lust may have caused her undoing.

In her battle lust, Maxima removed a light pole from its base. With the gasoline gushing from a nearby gas station, the sparks from the light pole caused a huge explosion. Caught in the explosion, Maxima and Superman were knocked out. Later, Superman and Maxima are revived by Guardian. In the end, Doomsday survived and Superman decided to stop the monster alone.

Indeed, a good showing by a female warrior against the Ultimate.

BAD: POST-CRISIS MARTIAN MANHUNTER, SUPERMAN (2001) #175

In 'Superman' (2001) #175, an intelligent Doomsday breathes fire on Martian Manhunter.

In Superman (2001) #175, Joker unleashes Doomsday on the anniversary of the Last Son of Krypton’s death. On that day, President Luthor gives a speech commemorating recent events during “Our Worlds At War.” At the White House, President Luthor is under attack by the Berserker.

Disguised as a secret agent, Mac transforms into Martian Manhunter. For the first time, Doomsday displays intelligence and speech. Unfortunately, Martian telepathy has no effect. When Doomsday blocks J’onn’s punch, the Martian notes the creature is sentient.

Then, Doomsday brings Martian Manhunter to his knees. Though the monster acknowledges J’onn’s power, he states the Martian is no Superman. Finally, Doomsday demonstrates another super power. Atrociously, the monster breathes fire on Martian Manhunter, defeating him.

Definitely, a bad performance against Doomsday.

WORST: POST-CRISIS CYBORG SUPERMAN AND SUPERGIRL, SUPERMAN/BATMAN (2011) #5

In 'Superman/Batman: Annual' (2011) #5, a Doomsday clone defeats Supergirl and Cyborg Superman.
In Superman/Batman: Annual (2011) #5, a Doomsday clone defeats Supergirl and Cyborg Superman. DC Comics.

In the Reign of Doomsday story arc, Lex Luthor has engineered his latest plot. Seemingly, he is responsible for letting loose four Doomsday clones. And their mission is to capture the former four Superman replacements during the Death of Superman.

In Superman/Batman: Annual (2011) #5, a Doomsday clone defeats Supergirl and Cyborg Superman. To begin, Cyborg Superman has seized control of the JLA Watchtower’s weapon systems. Aboard the Watchtower, Cyborg Superman and Supergirl are fighting a Doomsday clone.

At first, the monster appears to have evolved. During the battle, Doomsday rips off Cyborg Superman’s right cybernetic arm. Then, he cuts loose. With a blast of heat vision, Cyborg Superman destroys Doomsday’s left side. Strangely, Doomsday re-grows mechanical parts from the Watchtower.

Though Supergirl joins the fight. With the element of surprise, the Girl of Steel has the upper hand. Indeed, her strength and speed allow her to beat down on Doomsday.

Jealously, Cyborg Superman attempts to kill her. Heroically, Batman pushes him off, as the Cyborg’s blast misses. In a split second, Doomsday beats Cyborg Superman and Supergirl to unconsciousness.

Definitely, the lack of teamwork and the fact this was a clone show it is the worst performance against Doomsday.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


This comic completes “The Death of Superman” storyline. It provides an origin story on Doomsday and belongs to your ’90s Superman collection.

The comic stands out because of its fast pace and the urgency of the storyline. This is This product has excellent reviews and has 26 ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5. There is a great satisfaction with the product.

One customer review said: “I’ve been fascinated by this story since I first read it. I ordered this book for my niece to get her on board with what to me is the greatest story ever told in comic book history.

This story is actually the sequel to the classic Death Of Superman trade paperback. In this collection they go back and tell how the aliens created Doomsday.”

The reviews were overall very positive with 3 negative reviews. A problem cited by a negative review was the poor writing: “When is someone going to write Superman so that it does not sound like the same writers that were writing for him in the 1930’s? This book is full of the same cornball dialogue that has become a plague throughout Superman’s career. Superman grew up human – why not make him sound like it? This book does allow us to see a more human side to Superman – one with fears and an eroding self-confidence. The problem is that this unique storyline is overshadowed by the grade school, dumb it down writing. The story also uses the old fail safe, when it doubt make it Kryptonian safety net. ”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Paperback format available.
  • Sequel to “The Death Of Superman.”

NEGATIVE:

  • Poor writing.
