The Death of Superman was a 1992 stunt that turned out to be DC's bestselling Superman comic ever. The massive 11-issue crossover among four different series (Superman, Superman: The Man of Steel, Action Comics, and Justice League of America) introduces an unstoppable alien named Doomsday who creates a path of destruction on his way to the heart of Metropolis and whom Superman must stop at any cost. It's of interest as a milestone of the Superman mythos (though of course the outcome didn't last), but casual fans might be underwhelmed by the unfamiliar villain and the unfamiliar Justice League (with Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, and other minor heroes rather than the traditional lineup), the drawn-out story (by Dan Jurgens, Jerry Ordway, Louise Simonson, and Roger Stern), and the ordinary art (by Jurgens, Jon Bogadanove, Tom Grummett, and Jackson Guice). --David Horiuchi
"Superman faces Doomsday, a seemingly unstoppable monster. He is destruction, anarchy, and bloodshed incarnate. He cannot be reasoned with, he cannot be brought to account. As he carves an inexorable path of destruction toward Metropolis, leveling the entire JLA on his way with literally one hand tied behind his back, Superman must stop him. He can do nothing else other than be the force that stands between Metropolis and a monster. He must put himself between Metropolis and utter devastation, knowing what he faces" -- Colin O' Mahoney
"The Death of Superman went beyond a simple news story stuck on page three. In many cities it made the front page. People were interested in this ... Superman is one of the few characters that have an instant recognition factor for all generations. When we were told that Superman died, it meant something on a cultural level." -- Michael Bailey
"[The Superman team] took the nearly impossible and did it with a flourish and a gusto." -- Neal Bailey
"One of the most famous comic-book stories of all-time, as the murderous creature known as Doomsday comes charging towards Metropolis with only Superman able to stop him. We know Doomsday means business because we see him tear apart the entire Justice League. Only Superman can save his adopted city and the woman he loves and he finds a way to save the day and kill Doomsday, but in the process, he gives up his own life. You don't get much more dramatic than actually killing off freakin' SUPERMAN." -- Brian Cronin
"Death of Superman actually got me into comics again after a lapse while in college sampling 'real life.' There will never [again] be superhero comics like that -- on the front page of the newspaper, on TV -- hunting down those issues in bookstores and malls was a quest. So there was a whole context that made it very dramatic. And no matter what people may say now, there was a palpable fear that he wouldn't come back ... very surreal and cool." -- Brad Ricca
