Reign of the Supermen #228: Superman, Doomsday Hunter

Source: Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey #3 (1994)
Type: The real dealYou're Superman. You were once killed by Doomsday. You got better, but so did he (as in, more powerful). How do you defeat him? How about with a little help from a Mother Box and her manipulation of your costume... This thing has:
1. Cool 90s straps (no function)
2. Cool 90s leg belts (no function)
3. Gambit's open-faced cowl thing (no function and uncool)
4. A loin cloth (no function and soooo uncool)
5. A boom tube (to get to Doomsday's location)
6. Ultrasonic gun (Doomsday's auditory canals simply close up)
7. Lightsaber (Doomsday heals from any cuts instantly)
8. A time travel bracelet (Ahhh, that does it, Doomsday is eaten up by entropy at the end of the time)

Were that it had been the end...

this was a good mini-series. aside from what is mentioned in this posting it also included the origin (clever concept)of Doomsday and a confrontation between Doomsday and Darksied. boy i sure wish i had my very own mother box.

"Boy I sure wish I had my very own mother box." Try saying that in Buster Bluth's voice; it becomes a religious experience.

For some reason, I remember this costume showing up first with the comic included in the Kenner Superman/Doomsday action figure 2-pack.

There's where the "Fact File" comes from, actually.

I did enjoy Doomsday's origin, even though it never explained how he ended up buried in a field in Ohio prior to his fight with the JLA and then Superman. I don't much care anymore, but I always wanted some sort of connective tissue to why he was there.

Wayne, I don't have my collection handy to check but I'm pretty sure that was explained at some point. If it wasn't in Hunter/Prey, it must have been in the Doomsday Year One annual in 1995.

Yes you are correct, it was explained in Hunter/Prey how Doomsday got to Earth. It was right after the radiant creature beat him, they wrapped him in the green suit and launched him into space thinking their path would not allow him to interact with any other creatures but they were wrong, a meteor shower hit it and took it to earths course.

The leg band was a battery for the ultrasonic gun and laser sword.
