10 Things You Didn’t Know About DC’s Doomsday
1. He Can’t Die
Doomsday can’t die. Yeah Superman beat Doomsday to death while getting beat to death by Doomsday, but Doomsday woke up like a year later. That’s basically just being in a coma. And this isn’t the only instance. Doomsday ‘died’ at least 7 times; always recovering from each death with an immunity to whatever killed him. As said earlier, as an infant he was part of a genetic experiment to force evolution, and it was successful.
Each “generation” of Doomsday was reborn immune (or at least more resistant) to whatever killed him before. His actual power is this high-speed evolution, which allows him to form natural immunities to things that kill him. For example; after the alien, The Radiant, killed Doomsday with special energy beams, Doomsday came back to the planet later making quick work of his old foe as the beams no longer hurt.
You can burn him, beat him, shoot him, tear his head off, do anything to him, but he will not stay dead.
