The Pull List (5/14/14): Doomsday Nears

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2014 at 3:57 PM

Get a sudden urge to don a flannel around your waist? YouTube a few Gin Blossoms songs? It's not just you; comics are also feeling '90s vibes lately. Case in point: the newest Superman event, featuring the return of the villain that defined 1992.

Doomsday is back. The crossover sees a new look and new powers for the rock-adorned foe. This week's slew of comics features three issues from the event, including Superman: Doomed #1, Action Comics #31 and Superman/Wonder Woman #8.

When the character was introduced, it brought one of the biggest moments in comic book history. The 1992 Death of Superman story made headlines across mediums, and across the world. Of course, it didn't last long (less than a year, actually), beating even Captain America's recent resurrection time.

Can we expect Superman to die with this arc? Maybe not. But perhaps another character will get the axe. With the billing DC is giving this thing, we must assume something drastic will take place.
