This week’s pick for #SuperheroSaturdays is killer of Superman, DC COMICS DOOMSDAY. Images is by Raul “Reso” Osorio.
DC Comics Doomsday was originally created on Krypton. He was part of a mad scientist’s mission to create the perfect hunter. As a science experiment, Doomsday was continuously tested on, killed, and cloned. As a result, his body adapted and created natural defenses against any harm it received. Thus, Doomsday became an unstoppable and nearly indestructible creature of violence and death. Still, talk about “weird science” gone wrong.
DC Comics Doomsday first appeared in Superman: Man of Steel #17 in November, 1992. He possesses an immeasurable level of strength and invulnerability. Where ever Doomsday goes he reigns destruction. He was able to handle the Justice League with ease. Moreover, his powers even supersede those of Superman. In fact, Superman was only able to defeat Doomsday by sacrificing himself. Fun fact: Doomsday is so powerful he is even able to withstand the legendary Omega Beams of Darkseid.
