DCU in 2011: The Reign of Doomsday

Doomsday is coming back.

A few of you drew this conclusion from last week's tease, and we'll confirm here that the Kryptonian killing machine will return to Earth early next year - and you don't need me to tell you that's never a good sign for the heroes of the DCU.

Doomsday will first make his presence known this January in STEEL #1 - but I can promise you, he won't be the only hero facing Doomsday's wrath for long. The story will continue with:

The Outsiders divided?

With the team split in two and wanted for acts of war, The Outsiders find themselves fighting with one another in order to survive. While Geo-Force, Katana and the Eradicator build a new team in Markovia, Black Lightning, Owlman and Metamorpho find themselves at the home of an old friend who just happens to want Metamorpho dead. Plus, who’s the Creeper facing off against?

Our very own Dan DiDio teams with artist Philip Tan for the issue, which hits 8/25.

Bruce Wayne is back – but what has he returned to?

In his absence, his closest allies and deadliest enemies have blazed a new path, creating a Gotham that’s different and in many ways more menacing than the city he left behind. So, how do his protégés, allies and foes react to the man that stands before them?
