that artwork is amazing

Henry Cavill recently told TMZ that he'd love to see Doomsday in a future Superman movie, but how could you make a Superman/Doomsday fight different from Superman/Zod that we saw in Man of Steel? Imo, take a cue from The Dark Knight Rises and just have Doomsday demolish Superman with literally no chance of retaliation, that's how.
Doopie - 5/12/2014, 9:48 AM
i think the difference might be that in future instalments, Superman will be looking at protecting civilians first and foremost. also doomsday can't fly.

and by the time it roles around (if it does) supes will have the justice league at his back so they can all take him on.

i am a big fan of seeing superman getting knocked about though

dogshit cover art on the second cover. why is doomsday glowing?
AlphaAndDecima - 5/12/2014, 9:54 AM
@ Doopie

Doomsday can leap like a bastard though, lol.
DrDoom - 5/12/2014, 10:00 AM
Is this the arc where he fights me?

I'll [frick] that bitch up with a foot dive combo.

Curious about this story. Looks kinda lame with the whole Superdoom thing. Probably will be lame like most of the Superman stories coming out.
AxeEffect - 5/12/2014, 10:06 AM
dat artwork though
MrNiklander - 5/12/2014, 10:12 AM
@DrDoom man use that as your new avi it rules
Gamera623 - 5/12/2014, 10:13 AM
The art is good...but the new design for Doomsday is straight up crap.

Curly horns and pointed fingernails. His face is almost lizardlike. Its awful.
Space - 5/12/2014, 10:18 AM
nice artwork
BlinkyStark - 5/12/2014, 10:20 AM
piece of garbage artwork

piece of horse crap

Feh. Doomsday is just a spiky gray Hulk. What an awful storyline the original Death of Superman was. It made Superman look like a moron for trading blows with a creature of equal strength instead of trying something else, and 'death-by-pummeling' is not a worthy death for such a character.

Read Morrison's 'All Star Superman' - that has a death worthy of the character.

@AlphaAndDecima: By putting Doomsday in Justice League 2.
Gusto - 5/12/2014, 10:29 AM

That suit super sucks.
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/12/2014, 10:30 AM
Lex can do the Doomsday cloning.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/12/2014, 10:36 AM
I'm rooting for Doomsday!
DeusExSponge - 5/12/2014, 10:43 AM
@AlphaAndDecima: I have no doubts that Superman will get demolished by Doomsday when (if?) he faces him on the silver screen. But I don't want the fight to be one-sided for Superman with no chance of retaliation, like in The Dark Knight Rises. I'm hoping that Superman does have a chance to retaliate, with all the strength and might he's got. Once he does, that's when I'll be fine with him getting pummelled and receive one of the greatest beat downs of his life.

Doomsday could be utilized in a Superman story in a much smarter and better than simply it being a super fight that films Superman and that being about as much substance as it has.
Doopie - 5/12/2014, 10:46 AM
if i were supes, i'd pick the dude up and throw him into space. problem solved
InfiniteMonkey - 5/12/2014, 10:47 AM
Artwork's rather dodgy but hey its Doomsday.
Can never have too much of him.
Bring him back every six months and have him killed every 12.

They can't make up anymore NEW villains it seems.
FastFlames - 5/12/2014, 10:50 AM
I like this artwork
jj72 - 5/12/2014, 10:50 AM
Looking forward to this event! DC is just killing it with the artwork in their comics! Marvel lacks consistency in their lineup and some of the artwork is just atrocious. The fact that they want people to pay for some of these comics is just insulting.
Karmatron - 5/12/2014, 10:52 AM
So far 3 good movies, here it is my favorites:

1.-The Amazing Spiderman 2
2.-Godzilla
3.-Captain America The Winter Soldier /tied with/ Robocop
Ramiel - 5/12/2014, 11:04 AM
@jj72

Marvel's artwork can't be that atrocious if they outsell DC in most months. For the month of April, Marvel made $14.8M in comic sales. DC made only half of that.
FlyingSeel - 5/12/2014, 11:05 AM
Scott Lobdell is one of the worst writers in comic books right now. I can't wait until they kick his ass off Superman and Johns takes over.
FlyingSeel - 5/12/2014, 11:07 AM
@WhiteBolt he's right tho, DC is doing a better job CONTENT-wise with their comics. People may be buying more Marvel comics, and that most likely has to do with their success in Film/TV. However, there aren't many great stories going on in the Marvel U as compared to the DCU as of right now. Even if the New 52 is a complete cluster[frick] it's better than Marvel Now.
LEEE777 - 5/12/2014, 11:10 AM
We're all doomed :p

Damn, this New 52 version ain't never gonna touch the DEATH OF SUPERMAN storyline, that made Worldwide News!!!

Still, could be good.
BoomTubeB - 5/12/2014, 11:10 AM
nissssssce! artwork is redonkulous! cant wait to pick this up!
GL - 5/12/2014, 11:15 AM
Pretty sure we're gonna get Doomsday in the DCCU. Whatever Cavell says he wants, he gets. Take Cyborg for an example.
Klone - 5/12/2014, 11:56 AM
There are reasons Marvel outsells DC. Besides, numbers do not always reflect quality.

The Hannibal TV series gets around 2 million views per episode. The Big Bang Theory gets around like what... 15 million? Sure, one's a drama, one's a comedy, but no question that the former is superior.
ckal - 5/12/2014, 12:00 PM
again?

jesus christ superman vs doomsday has been done 1,000 times already
DlAMONDZ - 5/12/2014, 12:19 PM
superman bout to get that work
DiLusso - 5/12/2014, 12:32 PM
I couldn't give a flying [frick] about superman.
I've tried to read it but it's been terrible since the relaunch of the new 52.
The best superman books in recent years have been the two earth one OGN MJS wrote
Prime - 5/12/2014, 12:43 PM
Ugh Doomsday.
Prime - 5/12/2014, 12:44 PM
@Cosmic You are rooting for the monster? Damn.
Shaq - 5/12/2014, 12:51 PM
So 90s they have a glow in the dark Doomsday LMAO New 52 is terrible.
Nivekian - 5/12/2014, 1:38 PM
Man I hate this new 52 Superman Armored Turtleneck suit. It's ugly and breaks the template, and not in a good way.
DoubleD - 5/12/2014, 2:37 PM
Karmatron ,,, Did you see Godzilla already ?
ManCalledSting - 5/12/2014, 2:45 PM
Looks good to me.
