So, since every superhero has to die sometime - just so they can be resurrected (Hmmm, theological implications?) they had to come up with a way to kill Superman. You know, think about it, killing off Supes is no minor thing. He has become so powerful over the decades that is is more icon than character. He has overcome kryptonite, originally conceived to be his "Achilles Heel," so many times that is just is not a threat anymore. What to do, what to do?

And so we get Doomsday. A prehistoric Kryptonian creature, genetically revised, cloned, resurrected and otherwise folded and spindled and mutilated to the point that he could take on and kill the Man of Steel. After that it just gets silly. No villain capable of beating the Big Guy could be a one-shot deal. Why any baddie bad enough to kill Supes had to come back again and again and again and again. But given that Doomsday was pretty much just a killing machine with little character development continuing stories was a tall order. That is until I came along. Dommsday v Hulk - think about it.
