THE EPIC EVENT THAT SHOCKED A NATION AND CHANGED SUPERMAN FOREVER
Doomsday. A creature with single-minded purpose of death and destruction. He has landed on Earth, laying waste to anything--and anyone--who dares stand in his way. The Justice League makes a valiant, but ultimately desperate, attempt to stop the unknown juggernaut. When the beast nears Metropolis, Superman answers the call to stop him.
And then the unthinkable happens. The Man of Steel...is dead.
