~ Doomsday to Superman

Doomsday is a supervillain from DC Comics who's typically part of Superman's rogues gallery. He appeared in the 69th episode of Death Battle, Hulk VS Doomsday, where he fought against The Hulk from Marvel Comics.


Originally known as "The Ultimate", Doomsday was born in prehistoric times on Krypton, long before the humanoid Kryptonian race gained dominance.  In a cruel experiment involving evolution, intended to create the perfect living being, the alien scientist Bertron released a humanoid infant 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 over and over for decades as a form of accelerated natural evolution. The agony of these repeated deaths was recorded in his genes, driving the creature to hate all life.

The Ultimate escaped Krypton via a ship that regularly arrived to deliver supplies to Bertron (who had wanted little contact with the planet's natives) and went on a killing spree across several planets. Later known as the "Doomsday," he mysteriously bashed his way out of a metallic holding cell miles underground, dug his way up, and began senselessly killing and destroying everything he saw. Doomsday landed on Earth to kill everyone in Metropolis and in the process, killed one of the most iconic heroes of all time, Superman in an intense battle to the death.

  • Doomsday is the ninth DC character in Death Battle, with the first eight being Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, Green Arrow, The Flash and The Joker and with the next four being Bane, Batman Beyond, Raven and Doctor Fate.
  • Doomsday is the first villain to kill a hero in Death Battle.
  • Doomsday's model comes from the 2013 fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us.
  • Doomsday is the fifth Death Battle champion to roar in victory. The first four were Blastoise, Godzilla, Goliath, and Donkey Kong.
  • Despite being the strongest next to Superman, Doomsday is also easily the least intelligent DC combatant; being a mindless, rage-filled monster through and through--not to mention literally lacking a brain--whereas all the others (Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, Green Arrow, The Flash, The Joker, Bane, Batman Beyond and Raven) are known for being intelligent in and outside of combat.
  • Statistically, he's the most resilient Death Battle participant, as anything that kills him before won't work on him again and being adaptive to anything he encounters.
  • Doomsday is the fifth combatant to win in both Death Battle and DBX. The first four being Master Chief, Spawn, Roronoa Zoro and Raiden, and following him are Zero, Akuma, Samus Aran, Vegeta, Dante and Thor.

    • I mean, Goku doesn’t have a reliable way to kill doomsday, but doomsday can’t really do anything to Goku. Goku would just ragdoll doomsday around.
