Lois Lane and Superman's relationship continues to develop, and Lex Luther's hatred for Superman is as powerful as ever. Lex Luthor digs deep into the Earth's core in hopes of finding a new power source and a new avenue for income. While digging he uncovers a banished soul known as Doomsday. Doomsday is hell bent on destruction and was built with the sole purpose of killing every living thing. Superman may have to sacrifice himself to kill the ever powerful Doomsday.
"Insert a diode catheter into Satan's rectum, run a feed back to Lex Corp, and crank-up the juice."
Lauren Montgomery (Legion of Superheroes), Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series and Superman: The Animated Series), and Brandon Vietti (Spider-Man: The New Animated Series and The Batman) collaborate to deliver Superman/Doomsday. The storyline for this picture was intriguing and well presented. The animation was solid, the writing/script was great, and the action scenes were brilliant.
"You wouldn't use the heat vision on me, would you Superman?"
"No, just the x-ray."
The opening narration, Luther's conversation about the cure for diseases, Doomsday killing the deer, the "fear of commitment" conversation, Doomsday destruction of the military on the bridge, Doomsday pounding on Superman, the helicopter sequence, Superman pile-driving Superman from outer space, Superman's funeral, the soccer hooligan reference, Lex shooting his assistance, Toy-man attacking the bus, the doppelganger versus Lex Luthor, the news story of Toy-man's 4 year old victim, Superman killing the Toy-man, the doppelganger doing surgery on himself, doppelganger destroying all the other clones, and Superman and his new costume versus the doppelganger were amongst the better portions of the film.
"The doomsday machine lives to extinguish any and all life forms..."
Superman/Doomsday tells a magnificent story; however, it does not properly depict The Life and Death of Superman storyline from the comics. There were three clone Supermen in the true Superman/Doomsday storyline, and seeing how they played off each other would have been fantastic. The film was too short to properly depict the true story (with a run time of 75 minutes). Nevertheless, the brilliant action sequences, which focused on the impact of the devastating blows during the fights, made the DVD worth the sticker price for Superman fans.
