Action Comics – The New World | Comics

Superman Revenge Squad is formed and deadliest enemies from past comes to take down the Man of Steel with General Zod on the team.

With his wife Lois Lane and son Jon Kent, Superman successfully foiled Mister Mxyzptlk's plan but as a result, it altered history and timelines of reality to some extent. While working at his desk at the Daily Planet, Clark realizes that something is missing from their lives and he heads to his Fortress of Solitude to seek answers.

There, he asks Kelex to show him archive footage to find out what's missing from the life of him and his family. He is then given an extended narration of what his life was all about growing up in a world that adopted him and nurtured him into a guardian of truth. Kelex shows Clark when he first came to Metropolis for his job as a reporter and ended up saving Lois on his first day at Daily Planet.

He recalls how he came to encounter foes like Bizarro, Brainiac, Blanque, Conduit, Darkseid, Doomsday, General Zod, Imperiex, Lex Luthor, Manchester Black, Metallo, Mister Mxyzptlk, Mongul, Parasite, Silver Banshee and Toyman over time. There was the time when world witnessed "The Death of Superman" and then he eventually returned.

There were times he fought side by side with his friends in Justice League and it all started to come back to him piece by piece. Later, with help from his friend Batman and Wonder Woman, Clark and Lois welcomed their little boy Jon Kent in a new world during a critical period (Convergence).

Elsewhere, a shadowy voice approaches Metallo in his disassembled state in a holographic form and offers him revenge in return for his assistance. Then the hologram comes to the villain with psychic abilities and a knack for making art by murdering people known as Blanque with the same proposition.

Disabled and buried on the surface of moon, The Eradicator too is rescued and restored (Son of Superman) before he teleports Blanque and Metallo to one of Batman's secret base to form their very own Superman Revenge Squad.

Their host reveals himself to be former Team 7 member Hank Henshaw and he sends The Eradicator to free Mongul from the Black Mercy flower Superman trapped him into (Better Together). Assisted by Blanque, they head to Superman's Himalayan Refuge to retrieve a part of the Oblivion Stone for Henshaw.

As Mongul defies his leadership and attempts to attack him, Henshaw finally transforms into Cyborg Superman using the stone and forces him into submission before revealing his intent to free Kryptonian despot General Zod from his captivity to recruit him for their team.

With Superman in pursuit, Cyborg Superman and Eradicator go to Belle Reve for rescuing General Zod through "The Black Vault" (Earthlings on Fire). Cyborg leads the Superman Revenge Squad at the doorstep of Superman's Fortress but he is still blinded by the effects of The Black Vault as his enemies assembled for an ambush on him.

Knowing that he cannot win against them all and will probably going to die, the Man of Steel took a last stand against his enemies to buy Lois and Jon a chance to escape. He fought against some his most deadly enemies without his sight, which is equivalent of fighting with one arm tied but help came in at the nick of time to turn the tables.

Following the events of "Superman Reborn", not only the status-quo of Superman titles have changed but entire DC Universe is changed as well. This arc took a glance at Pre-Flashpoint events of Birthright, Secret Origin and The Men of Tomorrow from The New 52 era. This subtly suggests that all of those events have taken place in his life or a merging of these timelines.

Not only the plot assembles a large array of Superman enemies but the cavalry of Lex Luthor, Steel, Supergirl, Kong Kenan/Super-Man and Superwoman were also featured too. Plus, a Watchmen crossover with the world of post-DC Rebirth, Doomsday Clock is just waiting on the horizon.

Superman – Son of Superman | Comics

Ready to assume the mantle of his fallen counterpart, Superman faces another radical survivor of Krypton.

Prime Earth's Man of Steel gave his life away to save the world from the threat of a mentally unstable imposter Superman. The Superman who got here during “Convergence” is now living here as Clark White, who is the husband of Lois Lane and father to his boy Jon Kent.

He was also there when the incident happened and paid his respect to the fallen hero of this world. Spending a whole life-time of playing the role of the big blue boy-scout, Clark is now trying to settle in with his family in Hamilton Country, now going by as The Smiths.

While being a farm boy from Kansas, he uses his gifts only when it is necessary, whereas his young son is still learning to get his grip on his untapped raw powers, which even cost him the life of his dear cat and his next door neighbor Kathy Branden saw that happen.

Growing up to be the son of World’s greatest and most powerful hero is a lot of pressure to carry and when you are also one of the most powerful being on the planet, it adds up. As Batman and Wonder Woman comes to see Clark, Jon is caught peeping on them and his father took him to the Arctic for training him to use his powers.

Responding to a distress signal, the father-son duo then takes down a giant squid-like creature controlled by a crystal machine with teamwork and left afterwards. Jon shares with his father about the incident with his cat and Clark teaches him to be responsible for his own actions.

The remains of the machine detects Kryptonian/human hybrid DNA from the fight scene and forms a shape of the House of El symbol. Later at home, when Jon accidentally hurts himself by falling from a tree branch, Clark rushes with his boy to the Fortress of Solitude for immediatee treatment.

They enter only to find a being bearing resemblance to a rival Superman has fought long before; The Eradicator. Initially, Superman's response seeing his enemy was very violent even for a mild-mannered like him.

The ensuing brawl shook the very walls of the Fortress of Solitude and as Lois and Jon were about to hit by falling debris while seeking for cover, Eradicator actually saved them both. As Jon was diagnosed and treated for his injury, he explains that his mission is to find out lawbreaking Kryptonians hiding across the galaxy; a protocol set earlier by General Zod.

Then they were simply looking for survivors of Krypton after he witnessed the planet's destruction and then he found new traces of Kryptonian DNA on Earth only to discover that it belonged to Jon. Since his genome is tainted with Lois's human side, the entity suggests eradicating that half of the boy will suffice for purification.

While attempting of doing that, Krypto jumped in the middle and got swallowed by the being, enraging the Man of Steel once again for the sacrifice made by his hound of steel.

Superman – Son of Superman

Following “The Final Days of Superman” storyline from The New 52 continuity and the ground-breaking start of a new era of adventure with DC Rebirth, the world was missing a Man of Steel!

We were all in luck because comic-book writer Patrick Gleason (Batman and Robin – New 52, Sinestro Corps War) and Peter J. Tomasi (Black Adam – The Dark Age, Superman/Wonder Woman) brought us back the original Big-Blue boy scout from Post-Crisis era that we all used to know and love, the one from a time before “Flashpoint” crossover event changing mainstream DC Universe entirely.

The storytellers were aided by artists Doug Mahnke (Final Crisis, Justice League Elite), Mick Gray, Jaime Mendoza, Jorge Jimenez and Patrick Gleason himself lined up themselves to portray the story to us that also introduced us to the “Son of Superman”, which also happens to be the title of the story that features Superman: Rebirth issue #1 as well as issues #1-6 from the fourth ongoing monthly volume of Superman.

Although Jon Kent has not established himself as a super-hero just yet and still operates under his father's supervision, this arc explores his capacity to outshine his father.

Doomsday | Comics

Doomsday is the monstrous menace that terrorized planets and led genocide anywhere it visited before killing Superman!

Ages ago, on purpose of creating an ultimate life-form, a Kryptonian mad-scientist named Bertron sent a baby outside to the harsh environment of that era. The baby is immediately killed by the hostile creatures that lived outside and its remains were collected to clone him again to repeat the process.

They continued this for decades after decades to forcibly make it evolve and each time the subject was born better, stronger, with all the agonizing memory of its previous demise recorded intact in its genes.

Eventually, it reached a point where it hates all life and cannot be killed twice with the same measure it has been killed once. It then killed every other beast on surface and then mercilessly slaughtered Bertron and his crew after detecting their whereabouts.

It then crashes to Bylan 5 and met Darkseid but the latter had to flee as the planet was on the brink of its doom. The creature managed to escape in a shuttle and then wrecks havoc to Oa, killing hundreds of Green Lanterns who were sent to stop him.

It was only stopped when one of the Guardians of the Universe decided to sacrifice himself to stop him but the massive energy that was released in the process has tore space, sending Doomsday to Calaton.

After three years of his rampage on the planet, the beast is finally defeated by an energy being called The Radiant. Its body was masked and shackled before shooting him off to space because of his status as a mass murderer.

Doomsday | Comics

Death of Superman
What the inhabitants of Calaton didn't know was that Doomsday cannot die and so he is regenerated to his full health even after it crash landed on Earth. Then it reached the surface to unleash a nonsensical killing spree, facing the Justice League and defeating them all with ease.

Both Blue Beetle and Guy Gardner took a heavy beating at the hands of the monster when engaged in combat. Maxima was the only one among her teammates to even barely stand matched by the immense brute force of the creature, leading Booster Gold to name it "Doomsday".

Upon hearing the news of his friends getting their ass-kicked by this new mysterious menace, Superman rushes to the spot and joined the battle. It was then Doomsday realized that he has found a worthy opponent when he hit him without inflicting any effect.

The Justice League reassembles to face the beast once again, only to get beaten down for one more time. Blows after blows were exchanged for hours between the two titans until Superman finally realized that he cannot stop Doomsday without killing it. Both of them delivered their killing blow to each other and their lifeless body fell to the ground.

Following Superman's demise, Cyborg Superman took the body of the monster and shot it to space in an asteroid so that it never reaches another planet. However, a scavenger ship heading towards Apokolips have found it but the creature got loose and killed everyone on board.

On Apokolips, Doomsday laid waste of the planet and even defeated the dreaded Darkseid after surviving the blasts of his Omega Beams. Superman was contacted by Desaad for help and he was quite uneasy seeing the monster that "killed" him is now resurrected. He unsuccessfully faced it one more time and then sends him to the End of Time using Waverider's time travel device.

Doomsday Wars
A minion of Brainiac retrieved Doomsday from the End of Time to combine his brute force with his master's superior intellect. To work against Doomsday's strong will, Brainiac decided to genetically engineer the monstrosity within a human host and picked the newborn of Pete Ross and Lana Lang.

While this will serve him greatly, he will also be hurting his arch-nemesis in the process. Superman manages to drive out Brainiac off Doomsday's body using "psi-blocker" and then left Doomsday in a stasis on moon, where he would never be able to regenerate more than 25%.

Our Worlds at War
When the existence of the Universe was threatened the cosmic entity known as Imperiex, Superman and all of Earth's heroes tried their best to oppose him. Considering the situation as a State of Emergency, Lex Luthor reformed Suicide Squad and sends them to release Doomsday to be unleashed on the threat.

Upon releasing, the beast did a number on Chemo, Shrapnel, Mongul and Steel. Luthor also drafted Manchester Black to alter his perception and he is programmed to destroy Imperiex Probes alongside Superman but soon perished at the hands of Imperiex Prime.

Joker's Last Laugh
Using Superman's Kryptonian DNA, Luthor managed to grow flesh on Doomsday's skeleton that he was reduced to. He then managed for The Joker to release the monster in Washington, D.C. but Superman reached there in time to stop his rampage.

The creature has developed some sort of intelligence and sentience this time, with which he blamed Lex for his death during "Imperiex War". Superman finally defeated the beast by introducing the concept of fear, pain and self-doubt to him. Afterwards, Luthor hands him over to Darkseid to repay Earth's debt for war against Imperiex to Apokolips.

Supergirl from Krypton
The arrival of Superman's long-lost cousin Kara Zor-El on Earth created debate among the Man of Steel and The Dark Knight about whether or not she is an imposter, while Wonder Woman took her to the Paradise Island.

Darkseid sends an army of Doomsday clones that battled the Amazons and another small group of Doomsdays were busy kidnapping Kara. Since the creature's DNA was too complex to replicate, it was a clone devoid of sentience but raw power that are easily taken down by Batman and Superman.

Apokolips, Now!
Superman visited Apokolips to get back his friend John Henry Irons AKA Steel from Darkseid and they decided to face each other on combat. As the dark god of Apokolips getting a beat-down from the Man of Steel, his wife Mortalla instructs to release Doomsday to help Darkseid.

Natasha Irons was then suddenly faced the beast to a standstill and then her uncle arrives in the Entropy Aegis armor to save her by blasting Doomsday on the far side of Apokolips. The creature didn't rejoin the battle and chose to wander around the planet without a purpose.

He eventually managed to get back to Earth from Apokolips after some time and realized that he has developed emotions within him. When back at Metropolis, Doomsday was shocked to see Superman getting beaten to death by Gog and then quickly jumps in to help, surprising both the Man of Steel and his enemy.

Despite his help, Gog was victorious and Doomsday rallied an army against Gog as he became one of the greatest heroes of Earth. Superman was actually alive as a captive of Gog and Doomsday traveled to future to rescue him from the villain.

Infinite Crisis
With the Secret Society of Super-Villains running rampant across Metropolis, Doctor Psycho and Warp freed Doomsday from captivity. The behemoth was mind-controlled by Doctor Psycho for some time and when he came to knock off Green Arrow for good, Superman from both New Earth and Earth-Two came crushing on him.

This is the first time these two Kryptonians worked together as a team against a threat and the behemoth had no chance of standing against the combined might of Kal-El and Kal-L, ultimately leading to his certain fall after a brief struggle.

New Krypton
Shortly after the establishment of New Krypton at North Pole, Doomsday was dropped in the middle of the Kryptonian delegation on Washington, D.C. As the President is quickly evacuated, Superman and Supergirl decided to face the monster together before it could harm anyone else.

The fight then drags them all to Metropolis but soon, more Kryptonians have joined and took the monster straight to Earth's moon, where they all savagely beat him to a bloody pulp with little to no effort, seemingly ending his life for good.

Reign of Doomsdays
Doomsday eventually came back to life from his demise even more powerful than he ever was and he faced Steel while reigning chaos across the globe. The beast demonstrated the ability to grow metallic boney protrusions and now he is capable of flight.

Then he took down the Eradicator even after the intervention of The Outsiders. Boodikka of the Alpha Lantern Corps was also targeted by Doomsday but Batman and Supergirl took her away as Starman and Saint Walker hold him back.

It was actually looking for the Cyborg Superman in her and their fight took turns in the JLA Satellite for control. At the end of the fight, Doomsday kidnapped both Cyborg Superman and Supergirl before setting his sights on Superboy.

It is revealed later that the real Doomsday has been imprisoned the whole time and the heroes were fighting an evolved, cyborg version of Doomsday called "Doomslayer". As the creature plans to destroy Earth, Eradicator takes control of the original Doomsday's body to save the day.

In a world unknowingly created by Barry Allen due to change of reality, Doomsday existed as part of "Project Superman" named Project Six. General Sam Lane decided to use his DNA to create super soldiers and sent it to attack Booster Gold upon thinking him as an enemy.

This is the second time Booster almost died at the hand of the beast and he managed to shot off the helmet that controlled him, he goes on a bloody rampage. When Doomsday saw images of Superman on screen, he immediately went berserk on the people on board again and killing them mercilessly.
