Doomsday's penis is actually Clark Kent?
This issue begins with an article by Lois Lane. It's terrible but I'm going to cut her some slack because she's not in her right mind. Sure, her current mind is thousands of times smarter than her usual mind. But she's not in her right journalistic mind because she's preoccupied with helping Brainiac enslave humanity. So I'll let it slide that she used "effect" when she should have used "affect." Although Perry White isn't currently fucked up on Brainiac juice so I'm not giving him a pass on missing this! Surely he or his staff proofreads Lois's articles, right?
The article also shows the last shot of Superman after having ripped Doomsday in half with a photo credit by Jimmy Olsen. Hey! Guess who wasn't anywhere near Smallville when that happened?!
The issue begins with a few of Superman's friends and one fremesis coming to his aid in Smallville.
Are we just supposed to forget about that time Martian Manhunter turned against the entire Justice League? Will that story ever be told?
Superman has fled to Alaska to hang out with Krypto and beat up on some good ole boys flying planes, gettin' drunk, and shootin' wolves. Superman isn't feeling his normal self. Quite frankly, he's turning into an asshole. And, judging by the cover of Superman Loves Wonder Woman #8, he's turning into Doomsday.
Meanwhile, Steel is feeling a bit better after his run-in with Doomsday.
What is organic steel? A steel and carbon alloy? That shit isn't flexible!
The issue ends with Superman not able to get into the Fortress of Solitude because he gave his keys away to Batman and Wonder Woman. Also because the Fortress doesn't recognize his DNA anymore. Probably because it's mostly Doomsday DNA at this point. And instead of calling the Justice League for help (because why would Doomsday do that?), Superman heads into Metropolis as Clark Kent and just pretends that everything is okay.
Action Comics #31 Rating: No change. This book needs more Krypto! Probably more Doomsday as well since it is called Doomed! and it is about Doomsday. I hope Lana Lang turns into Doomsdamsel since she stupidly took off her hazmat suit just to prove she believes in Superman.
