I'm becoming more suspicious now that "Super Doom" killed Superman, and the Doomsday Lois speaks of here is that creature. She notes "this is how it was that day", so there's a connection between Vyn's machinations and Superman's death now. With our laws of time not applying to the imps, maybe after killing Superman its Mxy that brings Superman back to life, and what Vyn is trying to do here, in our present, is kill Mxy's human form so that he can't save Superman, which to them, has not yet happened.

I don't know how I feel about Superdoom to be honest. He looks alright in this upcoming issue but the original art for him back in issue 9 was so dorky. Plus his origin is pretty contrived (being conjured up by some sort of mind machine).
People who chime in on vs. threads with "I don't like Superman at all, but he'd win.", STOP HELPING! Superman doesn't need your damning him with faint praise, thank you.
Holy crap, this is looking so good. Can't wait to read this issue. Damn you Morrison, why do you have to go?
... The Master Of Puppets has spoken.
Goodbye León (november 16th, 1993 - june 12th, 2009). You were, are and always will be the best friend I ever had. I will always love you and never forget you. And please, please forgive me.
Thank you for teaching me about love, patience and caring. Rest in Peace, my friend. I hope that wherever it is you are now, you can run and play as much as you want.
I'm really trying to keep my expectations down as I'm really excited that Morrison's ending to his run, which has been fantastic in my opinion.
No matter how many reboots, new origins, reinterpretations or suit redesigns. In the end, he will always be SUPERMAN
I guess we will see in a few days, but my money is on it only being hinted at and not entirely spelled out. I think it all works better that way really.
Yeah, he's reiterated a few times that the death happened as is, but these pages alone already seem to conflict that. The sky never turned red when Superman died (which it apparently did here as the whole scene is familiar to Lois), he didn't die in the park, he didn't return from the dead to beat his killer (at least Jimmy's way of phrasing things gave me that impression), and he never rebuilt Metropolis. So I wonder now if Morrison wasn't just being coy.

I think its also worth remembering that Mrs. Nyxly had one wish left when she died. A wish that was given to her as a gift by Mxy. Maybe his human form has that wish back since she's been dead.
So, this is the last Morrison issue? Looks good, and I can't wait to re-read the whole story.
Yeah it's #17, which will be extra-sized.
This run has basically accomplished two main things
1. Re-established Clark Kent and Superman as a superhero for the 21st century after years of complaints that he's become too outdated. Superman as a social crusader like his original counterpart and Clark as a young journalist with cool ideas.
2. Thematic tie-in to Final Crisis and Morrison's overall DCU narrative about ideas. Hopefully a lead into Multiversity too.
It'll be up to Snyder, Lobdell, and Diggle to keep the ball rolling on #1, and Morrison to get Multiversity ready already for #2.

So Diggle takes over with #18?
I'll check in then
How many times can Superman die until it lose it effect?
