Today DC gave readers their first look at some artwork of Superman villain Doomsday, who will be appearing in his own solo issue during Villains Month in September.
The new interpretation of the character appears to be more alien centric, giving the character a more monstrous aesthetic than some previous renditions. You can check out the preview art for Doomsday below.
Doomsday’s comic for Villains Month aims to look at the origins of the character, what myths behind the character are true, and how he can be stopped. Here’s what DC had to say about the character:
“You already know that this September, one of the Villains starring in his own special one-shot will be the infamous Doomsday.
But who is Doomsday? In The New 52, the legends surrounding this character have become stories told to terrify Kryptonians. Nobody knows who created him, where he comes from, or even dares to utter his name louder than in a whisper. But are the various myths about what the Doomsday creature is real? Was he really let loose on an army? And if nobody knows the truth behind this villain’s origin, is there really a way to stop him?”
