This blog basically the reasons why I hate doomsday and if you feel like you get triggered by this dont bother commenting.

why I hate doomsday

1.Character

He is a freaking glorified plot device who purpose was to kill superman snd hates krytonians thats it.Like seriously if you think sbout it hes a bland character only created to be a powerful villian to fight or kill superman.

2.His overrated power levels and feats

Lets start out with his speed feats

He is very little to no speed feats other than some vague statements by flash and booster gold

Strenght feats

Basically are hurting people

thats it and people love overating his strenght feats which arent even on supermans level.

I bet someone will bring up doomsday beating darkseid.

Dc turned darkseid into a jobber and doomsday caught a off guard darkseid after he thought he destroyed him with the omega beams.

People over rate him to levels that he isnt on and think he can adapt to anything

3.Hunter/prey

This was a doomsday wank fest storyline that people wank to the extreme

and he was given the stupid feat of surviving the omega beams

and on top of that plot made him strong enough to solo the justice league when he didnt have the feats to

And his adapting ability was also amped by plot

And how does he lose exactly.Well by being sent to the end of time

If you hate doomsday feel free to comment and if you dont feel free to ecplain

I love Doomsday.

Yes, he has no character whatsoever. He's just a monster. But he's just such a powerful threat that he's interesting to see Superman fight. Sometimes, I just like monsterish supervillains like Carnage, Surtur, Parallax, and Doomsday.

Oh yeah, I see where you're coming from. I agree with a lot of what you said. In terms of writing, Doomsday is certainly not very high on the list like Joker or Kingpin.

Well he is a walking plot device. His whole initial purpose was to 'kill off' Superman.

He's a one and done character I think, more like a force of nature but he's been used to much, like the Borg in Star Trek, the more you use them the less you get out.

He's pretty much everything that's wrong with DC (and Marvel, for that matter). He's a one-dimensional plot device with no purpose other than to provide the readers with "power porn." It's not interesting.

@supergoku17: It's just a term I made up. It's basically just extreme, unnecessary power showings in comics, movies, T.V. shows, etc. In a way, power porn is almost like clickbait. Instead of spending a lot of time and hard work on developing an interesting, original story, just have your main characters fight using planets as weapons to attract attention. Wayyy too much anime is guilty of this.

Not everything in a story has to be a character. Sometimes they are just obstacles. Complaining that Doomsday isn't a deep character is like complaining the Nemean Lion didn't have any meaningful dialogue before it was killed by Herakles.

@supergoku17:

The rest of your points are just being salty because fans of Doomsday overrate him or being annoyed that Doomsday is written to be a threat to Superman-tier opponents, which is an odd complaint given he was conceptualized as a being able to kill Superman.

I am overall neutral toward Doomsday but those seem like pretty shallow reasons to hate something.

Doomsday is too bland for me to have any emotional reaction to him.

I like seeing him every now and then, but he shouldn't have really gotten passed "Death of superman."

Many writers have attempted to add some sort of depth to him but it always circles down to the same thing eventually - a mindless beast intended to be extremely powerful. Many "brute" characters fall into this category every now and then, you know, just so the heroes can have a huge threat to go all out on. Hulk falls victim to this trope frequently, but unlike Doomsday he started out as a protagonist and has had plenty of time to carve out a vast mythos with great storylines and characters.

Doomsday on the other hand doesn't have that - he could easily be replaced by the likes of Solomon Grundy and nothing would change. Hell, you could probably argue that Grundy being the powerful antagonist would provide a much more compelling a morally grey storyline than Doomsday because he actually has a personality. Doomsday represents exactly what he is named after, a "reckoning" that exists to show us just how powerful the hero of the story is.

@supergoku17: What about him beating Wally in HP, or Superman not able to keep up with his killing spree? How is that for a speed feat?

Edit: he has been shown above Superman strength wise. Both in Rebirth and HP. I would easily say that he is stronger than Superman.

Doesn't have the feats? The dude killed Superman and he was stronger than the DoS Doomsday. He had the feats in DOS. Easily tanking a combined attack from the JL. One shotting Matrix Supergirl. Who has tanked hits from Despero.

Surviving the Omega beams? What about when he tanked a blast equal to a million nukes. What about that? Or an amped Supermans heat vision?

Yes Doomsday is so powerful that most times he is taken out is by plot. Because he is just that powerful.

Do you hate him because he can take out almost anyone? I like when he is involved in comics, it means that things are about to get interesting.

Wally was caught off guard and not at his fastest and we dont know how fast he was moving

Edit: he has been shown above Superman strength wise. Both in Rebirth and HP. I would easily say that he is stronger than Superman.

Superman has way more and better feats than him and has held back against him in majority of their fights

Doesn't have the feats? The dude killed Superman and he was stronger than the DoS Doomsday. He had the feats in DOS. Easily tanking a combined attack from the JL. One shotting Matrix Supergirl. Who has tanked hits from Despero.

Superman didnt die.DOS doomsday would get one shoted by so many high tier characters.Rest of your point is flawed abc logic

Surviving the Omega beams? What about when he tanked a blast equal to a million nukes. What about that? Or an amped Supermans heat vision?

Supermans stats wernt increased by the motherbox

Yes Doomsday is so powerful that most times he is taken out is by plot. Because he is just that powerful.

He has been beat by clark twice,destroyed by imperiex,beat by clark and his earth one counterpart. Yeah sure plot.

Do you hate him because he can take out almost anyone? I like when he is involved in comics, it means that things are about to get interesting.

My points above make it clear why I hate him

He's cool. I just wish they would use him right. Which is the way he was used the first time. An inexperienced Superman with 0 time to plan and having to stop some mindless monster immediately. The New 52/Death Of Superman animated movie? with the entire JL jobbing to Doomsday? that is is just stupid. Doomsday is dumb.

That's a valid question. Probably could have Zipped to the fortress and back in a blink.

It seems what the Death Of Superman comic was trying to convey was, He couldn't pull away at all nor force Doomsday where he wanted him to go. Even in Rebirth,he kept trying to BFR Doomsday and he wasn't having it.

I hate how he's used. He shouldn't be considered an consistent superman villain like Lex or Zod. His whole purpose is murdering Superman and has no function past that. I like how powerful he is ( when he isn't blown way out of portion) but I wish DC would only ever used him especially to fight Superman Sparingly, Idk how many more stories I can take where Superman has to say he killed me last time when after so many new encounters Superman has a good track record against him.

Not really Jobbin. It was stupid how they chose to all fight at once but feat Wise if Doomsday is Superior to Superman overall he defiantly deserved all of his wins in that movie.

Isn’t Doomsday just like DC’s own version of what the Hulk would be in their universe? Anyways, I like Doomsday’s backstory, but his whole adapting to everything just makes him uninteresting because of how powerful he is/can become. They need to use him sparingly.

DoS was the first comic book I ever picked up. So I will always have a special place for him in my mind. Just can’t overuse him.

oh wow a one-dimensional, powerful, wankable villain meant to give the hero an obstacle

how unseen and unheard of... Truly he must be hated

I don't really have any feelings towards or against Doomsday. He's kewl, I guess and he's meant to be one of the things that scares the Man of Steel sh!tless. He's like a Horseman of the Apocalypse. Not a lot of character, but a lot of purpose.

He is a 'force of nature' type of villain, nothing really to be upset/surprised about there. That is why he is sometimes shown recovering from things like the Omega beams and the Astro force in his Hunter Prey form.

He honestly isn't even that powerful anymore, he went through multiple major set backs that caused him be weaker than he previously was. This is why we've seen him fall to blunt force more than once, otherwise it wouldn't happen. The fact he gets nerfed every time he reaches a really high power level (e.g Hunterprey and Gogwars Doomsday) means there is really no reason to rant about how ''overpowered'' he is sometimes shown to be, since he doesn't stay that way.

I can't help but wonder if your unnecessary hate for this character is shown when you favor his opponents in vs threads while (almost) everybody else is voting in his favor.
