Steel: Reign of Doomsday
If you picked up this issue wanting to see a fight between Steel and Doomsday, then you definitely got your money's worth! If you thought you were going to pick up this issue and read about how Steel defeats Doomsday, well...
The story starts off with Steel on his knees apparently pummeled by Doomsday. Steel is reflecting on what has brought him to this point where he is facing the monster know as Doomsday again. After a brief flash back, Steel shows up in Metropolis ready to face Doomsday. Steel's niece Natasha is there with him persuading him not to take on Doomsday. Steel gives Natasha a few encouraging words then he engages Doomsday.
Steel strikes the first blow by hurling his hammer a thousand feet straight into Doomsday's chest. Doomsday gets up and begins to transform. Now Doomsday has grown armor out of his skin and is displaying the ability to fly. Steel also hints that Doomsday may be able to teleport now. Steel pounds away at Doomsday with his hammer seemingly to no avail. Once Steel has chipped the chest plate of Doomsday's armor, he releases "nanobytes" that he designed to attack living cells into Doomsday's chest. The nanobytes were suppose to paralyze Doomsday for a least an hour until help showed up. The nanobytes effect on Doomsday only lasted a few seconds. Doomsday immediately goes back to pummeling John.
John senses that Doomsday is using a strategy against him, something that is uncharacteristic to Doomsday's normal attack patterns. Doomsday even calls out John's name, "STEEELLL" while he is attacking. Before you know it, John is knocked unconscious from the severe beating he took from Doomsday. Doomsday then cradles John's lifeless body and then proceeds to fly away unabated.
