Four pages from ACTION COMICS 903...

Doomsday clones have been unleashed upon to Earth, each intent on bringing about doomsday in its own way. One's targeting a nuclear silo in Russia, another a fault line in Hawaii... and a third has set its eyes on a virus lab.



Meanwhile, at S.T.A.R. Labs, Superman and some scientists are analyzing an unconscious Doomsday, looking for clues, when it starts to wake up.



Superman goes after the culprit behind it all, the Doomslayer. The character has a kind of interesting backstory, or at least seems to based on what we can piece together from the hints. He's a Doomsday from millions of years in the future, possessed of intelligence but also a deep, overwhelming self-hatred at being a murderous engine of destruction. He's decided to go back in time and remove from the universe the blight that is himself, totally and thoroughly. And since Earth has the knowledge of how to clone Doomsday, that means one of his objectives is to destroy the planet, before that knowledge can spread to the stars.

Didn't they already do a good doomsday story, where Doomsday developed sentience and over the course of a few issues (and crushing some innocent people), decided to follow in Supes footsteps in an alternate future?

Why does Alan's costume have a handle? Why are all the squishies right up front?

Huh so that's why the Cyborg Superman was run out of the book. Doom Slayer has the same motivation as him. That stealer! Oh wait. :p

Not to crap on their parade, but why did Dick, Tim and Rose even bother showing up?

I like shooting Superman out of a cannon for silly science shit, I just wish it wasn't one of the last things he did before we lose him.

This arc has been getting shot to hell by everyone, but I have been enjoying it. Better then that walking around shit in the other book.

Is this symbolism for the end of the era best known as the death of Superman?

One thing that bugs me nowadays is how folks tend to forget Doomsday has superspeed as well. It was even said that when Superman and Doomsday first fought a bunch of it happened at super speed.

With the American flag I was kind of expecting the Supermen of America of the Freedom Fighters.

I know it's a comic, so "Hey kids... SCIENCE!" and I may have been watching too much Moffatt Doctor Who, but if future Doomsday wants to get rid of his own history and the fact that Earth managed to clone him is a problem, wouldn't it be better to, I dunno, move back a couple of years further before he ARRIVED on Earth and the whole mess started?

I love Lois' "Oh, right, look who I'm talking to" face in the next panel.

"MONSTER, THESE ARE AMONG THE BEST OF EARTH. OR AT LEAST EVERYONE WHO WASN'T BUSY. TOGETHER, WE WILL STOP YOU. BY WE, I MEAN, LIKE, THE 5 OR 6 OF US WHO WON'T GET THEIR ASSES HANDED TO THEM."

Cheesy? Contrived? Yes, but I can think of worse ways to end Post-Crisis Superman's career.

I like this story, it's been fun, and that's something Supes has kind of been missing lately.
