Action Comics – Path of Doom | Comics

With The Final Days of Superman have ended, Lex Luthor decided to take up the mantle of the fallen hero who fought beside him and declared himself as the new Superman dedicated to protect Metropolis and watch over as the new savior. When he stopped a robbery on broad daylight in live television with an S-Shield on his chest, Clark White was watching it in his house with his wife Lois Lane and son Jon Kent at his Hamilton County home.

Thinking him as the same old evil Lex Luthor he fought all his life on another Earth, Clark dons his cape and flew to Metropolis with an urge to stop this maniac. Interrupting Lex’s speech mid-way, Superman appears hovering over and claiming himself as the real protector of the city but Lex simply accuses him of being an imposter. As Superman was about to approach Luthor, his warsuit responded by attacking automatically in self-defense and a fight broke in on the mid-air of Metropolis because of the mutual misunderstanding.

Their fight draws city-wide attention and to cover the story, Perry White sends the best reporter of Daily Planet to aid photographer Jimmy Olsen cover the story; Clark Kent. The heist that Luthor earlier stopped was a cover-up for another theft of a top-secret package from Geneticron. However, the thing inside it suddenly wakes up and crashes in the middle of the fight. Before Luthor could even react, Superman recognizes it as the only abomination that killed him; Doomsday!

Both Superman and Luthor charges at the beast with everything they got without wasting any time but it proved to be too strong even for the combined might of them. While Superman trades blows with the monster, Luthor tries to drove it away from the civilians. Lois watches the whole conflict from home on TV thinking of the time when Superman faced Doomsday for the first time, with an unbeknownst Jon to the event, who believes that his father can defeat the creature.

At point on the fight, Doomsday got his hands on Luthor and tears apart his Apokalyptian armor but the timely intervention of Superman eventually saved his life. Reporter Clark Kent gets in the path of Doom risking his life to get the scoop Perry sent him for and fell in front of the beast. Then the sudden arrival of Wonder Woman took him out of the harms way and the warrior princess joins the battle against Doomsday! Meanwhile, a mysterious hooded figure watches all of these from an undisclosed location, who has an agenda of his own which is larger than all that’s going on.

Action Comics – Path of Doom

With the usher of the “DC Rebirth”, comic-book writer Dan Jurgens (Aquaman, The Death of Superman) has joined forces with artist Patrick Zircher (Green Arrow – New 52, Suicide Squad – New 52) and Tyler Kirkham (Deathstroke – New 52, Green Lantern Corps) to debut a new era on the new Action Comics monthly ongoing with the first story titled “Path of Doom”. It ran through issue #957-962 of the series that features the return of Doomsday, a newly reformed Lex Luthor, Superman of New Earth, reporter Clark Kent who is not the Man of Steel and a certain Amazonian princess of Prime Earth.

The end-result of the Convergence crossover event and Darkseid War crossover arc from The New 52 timeline was also pointed out with the presence of Pre-Flashpoint Superman on Prime Earth and a reformed Lex Luthor in a warsuit powered by a mother box to become the new Superman of this world. Considering writer Dan Jurgens was the original writer of "The Death of Superman" storyline, he has depicted a slightly alternate take of that classic event of DC Comics. Issues that were left unresolved are concluded in the "Welcome to the Planet" and "Men of Steel" story-arc of the series up next.
