Steel Fights Doomsday in January

Can Steel beat the beast who killed Superman?

No Caption Provided
DC's the Source recently reported that this January, Steel will return to square off against the monster known as Doomsday. As you may know, Doomsday was the creature that killed Kal-El in the Death of Superman storyline.
 
The storyline will be entitled Reign of Doomsday, and Doomsday will return to Metropolis. Steel seems to be the only hero who can stop him, even though Steel is human once again. 
 
All of this will take place in January in Steel #1. The splash page on the right is drawn by Ed Benes, and he will be doing the interior art while Steve Lyons writes the book.
 
For me, I have Fond Memories of the Death of Superman. It was one of my favorite story lines growing up, and more recently, I reviewed the Return of Superman in its entirety. Steel is a great character who has received a bit of the shaft since Countdown to Final Crisis, and it will be great to see him back in action as a normal human, no super-powers here. Who else is excited for the return of Steel in his own series?
