Doomsday was a living biological weapon created by Darkseid. He was sent to Earth via a Boom Tube and proceeded to decimate the Justice League before his neck was broken in a final confrontation with Superman.


The Death of Superman[]


Doomsday was a weaponized beast created by Darkseid, using Superman's Kryptonian DNA and Solar Energy that was possibly extracted by Desaad during the invasion of Earth. He was then sent to Earth via Boom Tube. Lex Luthor suspects he was created by an alien civilization to kill the strongest beings on Earth to pave the way for an invasion.

Arrival on Earth[]

Landing in the ocean, after destroying a satellite and killing the crew of Hank Henshaw upon re-entry, both Lex Luthor and Aquaman sent people in to investigate. However Doomsday soon broke loose and began slaughtering both the Atlantean soldiers and Luthor's science team. Arriving at the surface Doomsday went on a massacre slaughtering any living thing he came in contact with including a young couple camping in the woods. Eventually he was confronted by the Justice League but even with their combined efforts Doomsday beat them all with Wonder Woman being the last Leaguer standing until Doomsday defeated her as well and was about to kill her until Superman came to the rescue.

Doomsday vs Superman[]

Superman and Doomsday began to fight an incredible battle throughout Metropolis. However despite Superman’s best efforts Doomsday slowly manages to overpower Clark. Their battle eventually ended up in the Hall of Justice which left the hall completely destroyed. Doomsday emerged from the rubble wrapping Superman's cape around his neck repeatedly stamping on his head until Lois Lane intervened by throwing stones at the creature to distract it. Doomsday approached Lois preparing to kill her. Superman at the last moment drew all his strength he had left and flew directly at Doomsday and struck a mighty blow that broke his neck, killing him. However at the same time Doomsday accidentally stabbed Superman in the chest with one of his protruding spikes killing the Man of Steel. Doomsday's body was then taken into the custody of S.T.A.R. Labs where days later, Lex Luthor attempted to sway the director to allow Project: Cadmus to take custody of the body for examination and research purposes. Doctor Corbow refused Lex's request telling him that they will keep Doomsday's body until the government can launch it into the sun.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War[]

Several years later, Darkseid combined Doomsday's DNA with those of Parademons to create the "Paradooms". They became Darkseid's primary attack force, decimating and killing many members of the Justice League and Teen Titans.


Doomsday can be described as a pure incarnate of killing, bloodlust, and destruction as the only purpose his existence is to kill any lifeform that he encounters regardless of whether it is dangerous to him or not. He demonstrates anger and rage in certain situations like when is insulted and when Superman ties him up on the bridge. He also is shown to be aware of his abilities and being able to use them precisely.

Doomsday possesses a very primitive mind, although does demonstrates a certain degree of intelligence such as by using things in his surroundings as projectile weapons or wanting to kill Wonder Woman using her own sword. He developed an interest in and strong grudge against Superman as he was the only one who managed to go toe-to-toe with him and also had a Kryptonian background, like Doomdsday.
