Fictional character biography

Doomsday is a nearly mindless, berserk killing machine, with no feelings apart from unfocused hatred, murderous rage, and the sheer malicious joy of destruction.

He was created in the distant past on Krypton, long before the humanoid Kryptonian race had gained dominance over the planet. It was a violent, hellish world where only the absolute strongest of creatures could survive. At the time, the world's dominant life-forms were said to be the most dangerous creatures in the universe.[2][3] In a cruel experiment intended to create the perfect living being, the alien scientist Bertron decanted a humanoid infant (born in a lab in vitro) onto the surface of the planet - where he was promptly killed by the harsh environment. The baby's remains were collected and used to clone a stronger version of him, a process repeated time after time as a form of accelerated artificial breeding. The agony of these repeated deaths were recorded in his genes, driving the creature to hate all life. Evolving, the child later became able to survive the high temperatures and searing atmosphere, only to be quickly slain by the vicious predators that inhabited the planet. Eventually, he gained the ability to thrive on solar energy without the need for food or air, to return to life and adapt to overcome whatever had previously killed him, without the assistance of Bertron's technology. "The Ultimate" hunted and exterminated the dangerous predators of Krypton. He then killed Bertron himself, whom he had come to identify as an enemy, due to Bertron having "killed" him thousands upon thousands of times.[2]

The Ultimate escaped Krypton via a ship that regularly came to deliver supplies to Bertron - who wanted little contact with the planet's natives - and went on a killing spree across several planets. It began 245,000 years ago on Bylan 5, where Darkseid was about to wed a princess (in order to obtain that planet's chemical deposits for Apokolips' weapons factories). Just as the Ultimate and Darkseid were to meet in combat, Darkseid was forced to flee, as the battle had caused the planet's atmosphere to become toxic and therefore worthless to Apokolips. The Ultimate hitched a ride on an escaping shuttle, which crashed on Khundia. The warring Khundian clans united in order to build protective armor for a warrior named Kobald, who was hoped to survive long enough to force the Ultimate onto a rocket. Once the rocket was in space, the Ultimate killed Kobald and the resulting explosion sent him hurtling through space.

He next crossed paths with a Green Lantern named Zharan Pel. The Ultimate took the Lantern's power ring and, sensing the power of the Guardians of the Universe, headed toward them. Hundreds of Green Lanterns, sent to stop him, were slaughtered. He continued to Oa where a single Guardian sacrificed himself in battle to defeat him. But the release of energies by the Guardian caused a tear in space through which the Ultimate fell. Eventually coming to the planet Calaton, he tore that world apart for three years.[2] With only the capital city left, the royal family combined their life forces into a single energy being, The Radiant.[4][2] The Radiant killed the Ultimate with a huge blast of energy (laying waste to over a fifth of his planet in the process). In common Calatonian burial procedures, the Ultimate's seemingly-dead body was suited and shackled to prevent his spirit escaping into the afterlife, and he was shot into space due to his murders making him unworthy of burial on Calaton. Eventually, his metallic casket crashed on Earth, the force of the impact driving it deep underground.[2]

The Death of Superman

After freeing one arm and smashing his way out of his buried vault, the creature went on the rampage in Midwestern America, where he first encountered the Justice League. Doomsday defeated the entire team of superheroes in a matter of minutes, which in turn attracted the attention of Superman.[4] Most notable is the fact that the creature fought the whole time with literally one hand tied behind his back, yet was still able to lay waste to all opposition and much of the surrounding area. The only Justice Leaguer who could even defend herself against Doomsday was Maxima. Also at that time, his naming occurred when League member Booster Gold stated how the rampage resembled "the arrival of Doomsday". The comment then subsequently reached the broadcast media and thereafter led to the creature's accepted name. Five Leaguers, including Superman, combined their energy powers in an attempt to take Doomsday down, but succeeded only in destroying the last of his ancient burial cables, allowing him to use both hands.

During his rampage, Doomsday took interest in billboards and television spots advertising violent wrestling competitions held in Metropolis, which appealed to his bloodlust and thus enticed the otherwise mindless creature to head towards the city. By counterattacking, Superman quickly found that his opponent's power was a match for his own, and so he realized that if Doomsday actually reached Metropolis, the resulting battle could conceivably destroy the city and kill millions of innocent people. Simultaneously, Doomsday developed a strong desire to murder Superman in particular. That desire was later explained in the Hunter/Prey miniseries: from the agony of continually dying during his creation process, Doomsday developed in his genes the ability to sense anyone Kryptonian, plus an overriding instinct to treat any such beings as an automatic threat.

Death in Metropolis

In the space of only a few issues of the Superman comic book series, Doomsday battled Superman in a titanic struggle, leading the hero to conclude that the creature would only continue to attack relentlessly and endlessly, with no fear or compassion. Matters came to a head in Superman (vol. 2) #75, wherein both Doomsday and Superman beat each other to death in front of the Daily Planet building in Metropolis.[4]

In the aftermath of Superman's apparent death, no fewer than four super-beings appeared in his wake, two of them declaring themselves to be the "real" Superman. One of these four, a half-man/half-machine who greatly resembled Superman with cybernetic implants where he had sustained the greatest amount of damage from Doomsday's blows took custody of Doomsday's apparently lifeless body. After strapping the creature to an asteroid with an electronic device attached, the Cyborg flung Doomsday into deep space, on a trajectory supposedly certain to never intersect any other planet. The issue ended with a frame of a reawakened and laughing Doomsday, still chained to the asteroid but otherwise alive.

Round 2: Hunter/Prey

Eventually, after passing through a wormhole, Doomsday's asteroid was accidentally found by a deep-space scavenger ship. Upon closer examination of the peculiar-looking drifting rock, the ship's crew retrieved the object hoping to find something of value. The scavenger vessel happened to be on a route to Apokolips, the home of the powerful tyrant Darkseid. Doomsday was fully rested and, after slaughtering the crew of the salvage ship, found himself landing on the harsh world. This was to be the setup for a final showdown between Doomsday and Superman, who had been uneasy about the possibility of Doomsday's resurrection. With the help of his JLA contacts, Superman procured a Mother Box, a thinking computer, after Darkseid's servant Desaad contacted Earth about a problem on Apokolips. Unknown to Superman, Doomsday had faced and beaten Darkseid himself in single combat, even after withstanding the full effect of Darkseid's fabled Omega Beams and was laying waste to Apokolips. Unfortunately, before Superman could deal with Doomsday, Desaad opened a boom tube to Calaton — the first world where Doomsday was successfully defeated — and sent Doomsday through, to what he believed was his defeat at the hands of The Radiant. However, Doomsday was able to adapt and overcome any opponent because of the process by which he was created, so, although the Radiant had defeated him once, he would not be able to defeat him again. Likewise, even though Superman had killed Doomsday once before, he was unable to do so again. Superman, while knowing this - having been filled in on Doomsday's history by the time-manipulating Waverider - was obsessed with stopping Doomsday and followed him to Calaton. He fought Doomsday again with the help of the Mother Box, but, despite it providing him with extra weapons such as an ultrasonic gun and an energy sword, Superman met with defeat. He was forced to use one of Waverider's time travel devices to leave Doomsday stranded at the End of Time, where Doomsday met the one force he could not overcome: entropy.

Duplicates

During the "Lifeline" storyline that ran in Wonder Woman, an imperfect duplicate of Doomsday was created by an artificial intelligence based on the son of scientist Doctor Julian Lazarus, who was attempting to bring his son back after being responsible for the accident that killed him. The AI based on the child had already created short-lived copies of Barry Allen and Sinestro, but he didn't realize that he was creating an actual monster; he thought he was simply playing a computer game. The duplicate originally possessed the same strength as Doomsday, but grew more powerful with each step. The Doomsday clone was eventually defeated when the power supply that provided him with energy was turned up to such a degree that Doomsday's bony spurs grew to cover his body, essentially turning him into a statue that Wonder Woman was able to shatter.

In an attempt to understand death, Mister Mxyzptlk created a temporary copy of Doomsday — which he called "Bada-Bing-Bada-Boomsday"—in Superman: The Man of Steel #75, who subsequently killed Mxyzptlk in the fight. However, Mxyzptlk was resurrected that same issue following a meeting with the Supreme Being, and removed the Doomsday duplicate from the fight once again.

The Doomsday Wars

Doomsday returned yet again in the mini-series The Doomsday Wars. In this series, Prin Vnok, an underling of Brainiac uses his technology to travel to the End of Time to retrieve Doomsday in order to combine the beast's massive power with Brainiac's formidable intellect (this was later revealed to have taken place due to the timeline's reconstruction following the events of 'Zero Hour', when the former (at that time) Green Lantern Hal Jordan, presently known as Parallax broke down creation and the heroes were forced to trigger their own Big Bang to stop him; the reconstruction of time meant that Brainiac was able to change the outcome of Doomsday's defeat).

Doomsday's will proved too strong to override completely with psionics, and he reacted too quickly for any chemical process to eliminate his simple mind, so Brainiac attempted to use a human host to genetically engineer a Doomsday body without the mind while temporarily lodging in Doomsday's head. He chose to use Pete Ross and Lana Lang's newborn baby, born eight weeks premature and transported by Superman to a hospital. Brainiac intercepted Superman during the attempt and stole the baby to hurt his long-time foe, correctly deducing that it was the child of someone close to Superman. In the end, Superman thwarted Brainiac's plot by driving him out of Doomsday's body via the use of a telepathy-blocking 'psi-blocker'. He then lured Doomsday to the moon, where he placed Doomsday in a kind of stasis with four Justice League teleporters; perpetually transporting between those four booths, Doomsday would never be more than 25% integrated, and thus unable to 'think' of a plan to escape.

Our Worlds at War

Following these events, Doomsday was released by Lex Luthor's Suicide Squad to battle Imperiex, a threat that was judged to be even greater than Doomsday himself.[4] Once freed, Doomsday slaughtered the Squad, and then went on to battle Imperiex's numerous probes (his mind having been altered to regard them as the threat he normally perceived Superman to be), which had thus far managed to seriously injure or kill most of Earth's heroes. Doomsday tore through numerous probes with seemingly little effort, while aided by Superman — the only time the two enemies would come close to teaming up — before finally confronting Imperiex himself. Imperiex proved too much for Doomsday; he blasted him, reducing the creature to a glowing skeleton.

Just a little while later, Superman (vol. 2) #175 commemorated the 100th issue since the death of Superman in battle with Doomsday by staging a re-match. It is shown that Doomsday's skeleton was retrieved and his flesh regrown by Lex Luthor (by using Superman's Kryptonian DNA), who handed Doomsday over to Darkseid (Luthor's aide in the retrieval, repair, and improvement of Doomsday) to repay Earth's war debt to Apokolips. By this time, Doomsday had evolved intelligence and sentience. Luthor arranged for the Joker to set Doomsday loose in Washington D.C. to demonstrate that he was "in good working condition." It also happened to be the anniversary of the day that Superman had died while stopping Doomsday. Despite being weakened by kryptonite exposure when Luthor attempted to exploit Doomsday's Kryptonian origins, Superman's heart was restarted by Black Lightning and he reached Doomsday just as the monster was struggling with the Martian Manhunter. Learning from J'onn that Doomsday wanted to kill Luthor because he blamed Luthor for his 'death' in the Imperiex War, Superman would soon fight Doomsday again and this time humbly defeat the creature by knocking him out and proving to himself and the world that Doomsday would never be Superman's equal anymore:

You're different now. You can think for yourself. So think about this. Before, you were a mindless thing. Nothing could hurt you. You couldn't feel pain, much less understand it. But once you have felt it — it changes you — forever. And you'll begin to understand something new. Fear. I've lived with it all my life. You don't want to die again, do you? The agony of what's happened to you affects your speed — your strength... and that little bit of doubt — that you cannot win today — grows. You understand now, don't you? You will never hurt me again. You will never kill me again. Never again!

Darkseid attempted to replicate Doomsday, producing an army of Doomsday "clones". Darkseid was not able to duplicate perfectly the creature in all its raw power, possibly as a result of the creature's complex DNA, and they were defeated by a combination of heat vision and Batman's explosive batarangs during an attack on Paradise Island while Darkseid kidnapped the newly-arrived Kara Zor-El/Supergirl.

When Superman travelled to Apokolips to reclaim the life of Steel, Darkseid's wife Mortalla ordered his troops to release Doomsday in an attempt to help Darkseid. Doomsday's short freedom was quickly halted by Irons in the Entropy Aegis, an armor with incredible power that had been built out of the remains of an Imperiex probe. Doomsday disappeared and was seen wandering the harsh lands of Apokolips.

Sentience

With his newfound intelligence, Doomsday managed to escape Apokolips and return to Earth. Upon his arrival, Doomsday encountered a series of emotions previously alien to him — love, compassion and kindness. Exploring the full abilities of these new emotions, Doomsday made his way to Metropolis once more, though not in the destructive manner he had before. Upon his arrival in Metropolis, Doomsday found Superman at the brink of death at the hands of Gog and intervenes to help Superman in an ultimately futile fight against Gog's army. In a new future, Doomsday was remembered as one of Earth's greatest heroes, who continued Superman's legacy by leading an army under his name against the army of Gog. This new timeline ended when it was revealed that Superman was still alive, trapped and tortured with kryptonite for two centuries by Gog. Ultimately, Superman manages to convince Gog of the error of his ways. Gog offers to correct the past by returning Doomsday to an earlier point in the timeline, but in the process Doomsday would lose his intelligence and humanity. Returned to the present, an unconscious Doomsday is transported away by a younger version of Gog to an unknown location for an unknown purpose.

Battle of Metropolis

During Infinite Crisis, Doomsday was freed from captivity in a cavern near the center of the Earth by Doctor Psycho and Warp. He was then mind-controlled by Doctor Psycho and used as the "spear-carrier" of a supervillain assault on Metropolis. Just as he came into full view in front of Green Arrow, he was stopped by Kal-El and Kal-L, who made quick work of the villain as, for the first time since the first Crisis, the two Supermen acted as a team.

New Krypton

Doomsday returns in the final page of Superman (vol. 1) #681, crashing in Metropolis shortly after the representatives of Kandor meet with the President. Doomsday was then apparently killed on Earth's moon when Superman, Supergirl, and many of Kandor's inhabitants pummeled him to death in Action Comics #871, crushing the monster's skull.

After the fight, Doomsday's mangled corpse ends up in the hands of General Sam Lane, who is currently in charge of a mysterious government agency determined to halt the Kryptonian "invasion" of Earth. It has been hinted at that General Lane sent Doomsday after the Kandorians in the first place, and that the creature is only one of the "weapons" at Lane's disposal. General Lane puts Lex Luthor to work on apparently "improving" Doomsday who, by the end of New Krypton has still not awoken from his most recent death.

During the fight, Zor-El, Superman's uncle, tells him that Doomsday was created by Kryptonians on ancient Krypton through "forced evolution." And as such, the creature hates all Kryptonians.

Powers and abilities

Doomsday was created through the cloning of an infant and having it killed over and over again by one of the most dangerous species of the universe and in one of the harshest habitats in existence, prehistoric Krypton. As such, the infant evolves and returns to life, becoming resistant or immune to whatever killed it before. After the Radiant killed him the first time they fought, Doomsday grew immune to the former's energy-projection, and even managed to withstand Darkseid's full Omega-Effect.[5] The amount of damage dealt to Doomsday determines the length of time it would take to fully recover. During his outwardly undamaged death at Superman's hands, he only needed some days to recover, but when Imperiex reduced him to a skeleton, it would take months. His entombment in a Calatonian burial suit and metal vault lasted thousands of centuries: after being killed by the Radiant and subsequently undergoing the impact of the casket on Earth, his body was sealed underground in total darkness. Deprived of solar energy, he could only revive extremely slowly.

Doomsday can also develop/evolve resistance from ordinary injuries. Superman once used a sound gun to greatly discomfort him, but Doomsday's auditory canals closed up, making him impervious to Superman's weapon.[5] Waverider once paralyzed Doomsday with chronal energy, but the second attempt backfired.[5] In essence, Doomsday gradually turns more invulnerable if not injured beyond his ability to recover, which is so far undefined. Doomsday has also developed weapons and abilities that counters the powers of an opponent. He managed to cancel out the pure-energy Radiant by slamming into him; to greatly extend his claws and develop a poison to strike Superman in flight and reel him in;[5] or breathe flames against the fire-sensitive Martian Manhunter, and apparently neutralize his defensive phase-shifting power.[6] Doomsday's skeleton protrudes through his skin in razor-sharp spurs which provide protection to his few vital organs (brain, eyes, nervous system), and act as clawlike weapons on his hands, elbows and knees.

Doomsday possesses extreme physical strength that, variable as it is, sometimes exceeds that of Superman, at one point enabling him to effortlessly stand his ground against the entire Justice League, including Superman and Orion.[7] He was able to break Superman's left arm with limited effort, as well as outmatch and beat Darkseid unconscious in physical combat.[5] However, his strength has limits: the immensely strong Calatonian alloy cables, in which he was entombed, continued to partially restrain during his initial rampage on Earth. It was never stated how long he had struggled to free his left hand before his escape.

Doomsday is immensely resistant to heat, cold, and conventional damage, allowing him to survive on the most inhospitable worlds, or in the vacuum of space. His durability apparently also considerably exceeds that of Superman, as he was able to withstand Darkseid´s full-powered "Omega Effect" without any shown damage.[5]

Doomsday possesses seemingly inexhaustible stamina, and was not noticeably slowed down from fighting Superman for an entire day. His speed and agility are vastly disproportionate to his bulky stature, and has been able to match Superman in this regard. He cannot fly, but rather travels by leaping miles at a time. Superman took advantage of this in their first battle by trying to keep him airborne, as the sky was his element.

Doomsday has a highly accelerated healing factor that allows him to quickly regenerate from most damage. When his side was cut by Superman with a plasma sword, it closed within moments. As a result of his engineering, Doomsday does not need to eat, drink, breathe, or sleep, and his body is almost solid mass with few vulnerable organs.[5]

Doomsday is now genetically part-Kryptonian due to his genes having been spliced with Kal-El's, however with the exception of his flame-breath, he has displayed no additional abilities. In fact, he was shown weaker than previously when he was singlehandedly beaten by Superman, which should not have been possible given previous accounts. This was rationalized as due to intelligence that he developed, causing him to fear the death that awaited him if he lost, but does not explain how a simple minor concussion could incapacitate his healing-factor for the time he remained unconscious.[6] However, he lost his intelligence when sent back in time, reverting him to his original state of fearlessness.[citation needed]

Once he gained some of Superman's Kryptonian DNA, he became susceptible to Kryptonite. Unlike Superman, it causes him pain, but cannot kill him.[citation needed] This was done to render him controllable.

Other versions

In the non-continuity book All-Star Superman, Grant Morrison's modern take on the Silver Age includes the D.N.A. P.R.O.J.E.C.T. which was resurrected by a scientist named Leo Quintum. Under Quintum, the P.R.O.J.E.C.T. is dedicated to "the engineering of new human forms" including Bizarro worker drones, giants who can travel through space under their own power, and microscopic "nanonauts" unlocking the mysteries of the sub-atomic world. The P.R.O.J.E.C.T.'s ultimate goal is to create a replacement Superman, in case something happens to the original. In All-Star Superman #4, it is revealed that the P.R.O.J.E.C.T. created a formula to bestow Superman-level strength and durability on a normal human, but all of their test subjects ultimately burned out. Jimmy Olsen shoots himself with a syringe gun containing a formula marked "Do Not Open Until Doomsday", and transforms into a hulking, gray skinned figure with bony protrusions. Jimmy succeeds in stopping a black kryptonite-afflicted Superman and transforms back to normal before the formula kills him. It's not discussed as to whether Superman fought an original Doomsday in this universe, or if the familiar Doomsday even exists.

  • In the Tangent Universe, Doomsday is a member of the Doom Patrol.
  • In the Young Justice crossover story "World Without Young Justice", the past of all of the team members are changed. Superboy is now one of two clone attempts after Superman's death. His nemesis is a teenage version of Doomsday known as Doomsboy.
  • In Action Comics #856, a Bizarro No. 1 created a Bizarro Doomsday.
  • In the Superboy story "Hypertension", Black Zero has a collection of dozens of Doomsdays from alternate realities.
  • In Red Son, Doomsday in one of the many rogues created by Dr. Luthor.
  • A Doomsday-like creature codenamed "All-American Boy", was introduced in Superman/Batman storyline "K". All-American Boy was deceived into an experiment to use Kryptonite to bond cell scrapings taken from Doomsday to a human host (Joshua Walker). [8] Walker, a local Smallville hero turned soldier, under control battles Superman, devastating Smallville, Kansas in the process. Batman locates Josh's parents, who convince him to stop. Project leader Amanda Waller is forced to pay towards repairing Smallville in return for her dealings in the AAB project to remain secret. [9]
  • In the Superman/Batman storyline "Mash-Up", elements of Doomsday are combined with parts of Deathstroke, creating the villain Doomstroke.[10] This creature is the only one that can beat Superman.

In other media

Television

Doomsday as depicted in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
  • In the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Doomsday Sanction," Doomsday's brain regenerates and Dr. Achilles Milo (a Project Cadmus member) releases Doomsday to kill Amanda Waller explaining that his hate of Superman was manufactured. However, Doomsday instead kills Milo and goes to fight Superman. Like his comics counterpart, his skull has adapted a heavy bone-plate to prevent the same trick from working twice (perhaps a subtle reference to how in the comics, Doomsday can't be killed twice using the same method). Doomsday is disabled when Superman throws him into an active volcano, encasing him in lava. The Justice League then sentences him to life imprisonment in the Phantom Zone since he's too dangerous to imprison anywhere else.
  • Doomsday also appeared in a cameo in the Legion of Super Heroes animated series episode "Phantoms," where he is shown as a phantom prisoner within the Phantom Zone, along with many other Phantom Zone villains.
Dario Delacio as Doomsday in the Smallville episode "Doomsday".
  • Doomsday appears on Smallville as the main villain for the show's eighth season,[11] played by Sam Witwer in human form and Dario Delacio in his true Doomsday form. This version of Doomsday has a human looking alter ego called "Davis Bloome," who mutates into the recognizable monster form and blacks out for the periods when Doomsday is active. It is revealed that Davis was created by General Zod and his wife Faora from the DNA of the strongest creatures they could find on Krypton.[12] Unlike his comic incarnation (prior to attaining sentience and intelligence), it is apparent that this version of Doomsday is able to somewhat speak, as he murmurs Chloe's name shortly before abducting her. When Clark reveals his secret to the world, Davis realises Clark is the Kryptonian he has been sent to kill. Clark then goes back in time and alters history so Davis never learns his secret.[13] In the season finale, Chloe splits Davis and Doomsday using Black Kryptonite and Clark is able to trap Doomsday deep below the Earth while Davis is killed.[14]

Film

  • Doomsday appears in the 2007 animated direct-to-video film, Superman: Doomsday. His origin is simplified, with Kryptonian records reporting him as an improperly programmed biomechanical supersoldier, a literal weapon of mass destruction or doomsday device, destroying everyone and everything in sight "because it must". After going on a killing spree, Superman battles him throughout Metropolis. Doomsday is finally defeated when a severely wounded Superman flies him into outer space and brings them back, slamming him into the pavement, killing him. The blast also results in the mortal wounding of Superman, though Superman's condition is discovered to be merely a death-like reduced metabolic healing state. Unlike the comics, there is nothing to indicate Doomsday returns from the dead. Like his first appearance in the comics, he does not speak and only roars.
