Synopsis for "Doomsday!"

Superman and Doomsday have their final confrontation in Metropolis. Each foe delivers crushing blows onto the other, never letting up on their opponent. Police and military vehicles converge on the scene, but the streets are in chaos. Superman gets a last kiss from Lois Lane, then charges into action, ready to bring down Doomsday no matter what.

The two combatants battle it out in front of the Daily Planet, at one point striking each other with such force that the windows on the Planet shatter. Eventually, Superman delivers a fatal blow to Doomsday, snapping his neck, but while receiving an equally deadly blow at the same time. Lois Lane rushes over to Superman's limp body and cradles him in her arms, begging him to hold on until the paramedics arrive. However, it is too late, and the Man of Steel fades in her arms.

Superman is dead.


  • The death of Superman was a subject of conversation on an episode of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Jay Leno was seen wearing one of the Superman memorial armbands across his left arm.
