redditText Size: Is being an iconic superhero hazardous to your health? Following the Wednesday reveal of a "Death of Spider-Man" teaser on the cover of the next issue of Marvel Previews, DC Comics has posted the familiar bloody "Death of Superman" logo on their official blog The Source, along with the words "Doomsday Will Reign!"

No other details were provided. Doomsday was the antagonist of the popular "The Death of Superman" storyline from 1992, with their battle temporarily putting Superman in a death-like state. Superman #75, the issue depicting the hero's actual "death," sold millions of copies over multiple printings.

Though Doomsday died in that issue as well, he's since returned in a number of comics, as recently as the 2008-2009 Superman: New Krypton story.

On Wednesday afternoon, DC Comics announced that Chris Roberson was taking over the writing reins of the monthly Superman title from J. Michael Straczynski. We'll give you more details on what this teaser might mean when we have them.

Interesting. Maybe Dan DiDio has forgotten that DC has already killed Superman. Honestly, Doomsday hasn't been a legitimate threat since the Doomsday arc (yes yes, the trade is called "The Death of Superman" but the original comics were called simply "Doomsday" and that's what I go by). Reasserting him as a major threat and destructive force in the DCU probably can't be a bad thing.

But then again, the "character" (if that's what we're calling him now) is sort of one-note. He was designed to be the guy who beat Superman to death. Given such a limited purpose, he's never had a whole lot of potential as a character.

Boy, sure is a good thing Doomsday decided to wait until Superman was finished walking the Earth like Cain from Kung-Fu for a year!
