Synopsis for "The Origin of Doomsday"

Bertron was an alien scientist who operated on the planet Krypton many thousands of years ago. He sought to create the ultimate life form. His first experiments however failed, but Betron cultivated cells from the dead experiment and infused them into his next test subject. This subject also died, but Betron, undeterred, repeated the process over and over again. Ultimately, his experiments were met with success. The life form, possessing the genetic memory of it's predecessors, had adapted beyond the previous experiments and was now immune to being killed by any process that had been used before. Biogenetically designed to be the ultimate survivor, this "Doomsday" slaughtered Bertron and escaped from the arid wastelands of Krypton.

He traveled across the stars for millennia encountering other races and creatures such as the Catalonians and their royal champion, the Radiant. Radiant defeated Doomsday at the cost of his own life, and the Catalonians performed an ancient funerary rite upon him, binding him in treated fabric and propelling him into outer space.

Doomsday survived this as well and ultimately came to the planet Earth where he instinctively sought out Earth's Kryptonian champion, Superman. The two fought one another to the death, but both Doomsday and Superman would soon return to life. [1]
