Following the events of this summer’s crossover “Trinity War,” a dark shadow will be cast across the DC Universe.
This September, all of the DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 titles will be replaced by Villains books. What happens when the heroes of the DC Universe fall and there’s nobody left to stop the villains from taking over? Find out this fall during Villains Month, which will spotlight 52 of the DC Universe’s biggest rogues in their own one-shots.
You already know that this September, one of the Villains starring in his own special one-shot will be the infamous Doomsday.
It's the End of the World!!!
In other words, Happy New Year 2012! This is the year that when December 21 hits, keeping any resolutions won't matter because it all goes apocalyptic!
So what's our mood here at DC? To paraphrase our pal Alfred E. Neuman from MAD, "What, us worried?"
Hardly. Doomsdays are what makes for great stories, and even a cool character here at DC! This just gives us fodder for story material.
Still trapped in a world unfamiliar to the one he knows, Booster Gold is held hostage by Nathaniel Adam, the man he once knew as his friend, Captain Atom. As his memories of the world he knew are starting to fade, Booster is running out of time to escape from the clutches of Nathaniel, defeat Doomsday, and find The Flash to restore the universe to its rightful setting. But when he locates Barry and attempts to use his speed force to fix the altered timeline, he’ll quickly learn that saving the world does not come without severe consequences.
As Steel, Superboy, and Supergirl use all of their might to beat Doomsdays across the world into submission, Superman faces down with the real mastermind behind the reign of terror. But even with all of their powers combined, is the super-team strong enough to defeat all of the Doomsdays? Perhaps the help of an unexpected ally will bring them the victory they’re hoping for and stop the Reign of the Doomsdays once and for all.
In order to prevent history from repeating itself, Booster Gold tries to stop Doomsday as he goes on a rampage and destroys everything in his path. Booster’s mission to restore the original timeline is put on hold – perhaps forever – as he tries to contain an enemy who is stronger, bigger, and deadlier than any he’s ever faced before.
