If you’re not familiar with Doomsday, here is a brief synopsis that can only be told from a guy that has absolutely no social life. In 1992, Doomsday killed Superman. To be fair, both combatants died. Out of nowhere, four Supermen appeared and one of them was Shaquille O’neil. The other was a Superman/Cyborg hybrid which strapped Doomsday to an asteroid and shot him into space at a trajectory that would never intersect any other planet. Some mercenaries found him and tried to make a quick buck off Doomsday. Instead, Doomsday killed everyone on the ship and flew to Apokolips, home of Superman’s other arch-nemesis, ‘Darkseid’. Normally, you would think an entire planet could stop one dude. Doomsday not only defeated Darkseid, but just started causing ruckus on Apokolips. After the original Superman was somehow magically resurrected, he tried to bang against Doomsday again. He knew that he couldn’t defeat him so he used a time-warping device to send Doomsday to the end of time. Yeah, the only thing that could stop Doomsday was entropy. That’s deep.
On December 5th 2009, Joe Silva constructed the perfect fight for DC comic geeks. John ‘Doomsday’ Howard was scheduled to bang against Dennis ‘Superman’ Hallman at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale. The fight played out exactly like the comic book (minus the resurrecting Shaq Disel and ‘end of time’ stuff).
Check out this clip of John ‘Doomsday’ Howard being interviewed by our very own D**k ‘Starscream’ Grayson (his name is a weak attempt at a 2-in-1 dedication to the Batman and Transformer franchise. He’s single ladies.).
Happy 420 Joe Rogan.
