Development began after a planned story, in which. Would be married, was postponed to coincide with a similar storyline in the television series. Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. While pitching possible replacements, Ordway jokingly suggested that they should kill Superman. As Superman comic sales had declined in recent years, the writing teams felt the character had been taken for granted and decided to temporarily kill him to emphasize his importance. They wanted the crossover to surprise readers and show Superman is not invincible. “The Death of Superman” is divided into three. “, “Funeral for a Friend”, and “Reign of the Supermen!

The story has been adapted into various forms of media, including two novelizations in 1993 and a. The Death and Return of Superman. Was released in 2007. A second animated adaptation was released as a two-part film. Reign of the Supermen. In 2018 and 2019, respectively. San Diego Comic-Con International. The character debuted in. On April 18, 1938. And the following year became the first superhero to headline his own comic book. Since his debut, Superman has been a. In the United States. In 1985, DC launched the. Crisis on Infinite Earths. Which took place in a variety of comics. Its conclusion resulted in the. That the publisher’s comics, including those related to Superman, take place inbeing. Re-envisioned Superman in his 1986. The Man of Steel. The following year, Byrne. With a new first issue and the original series was renamed. In the reboot, Byrne removed various elements of the Superman. To streamline the character for modern audiences. Which also allowed him to reintroduce them in a new way later on. The relaunch was a major success for DC and. #1 became the bestselling comic book issue of 1986. Byrne also wrote and illustrated. Under Byrne, a new Superman comic was released every week and each series maintained. He spent two years on the Superman comics before leaving in 1988. Dissatisfied with DC’s lack of “conscious support” for him and that the version of Superman licensed for merchandising did not reflect Byrne’s stories. As a result of Byrne’s departure, Superman group editor. Had to assemble new creative teams to replace him. Ordway began to write. The Adventures of Superman , while. Who had recently finished a 12-year stint at rival publisher. Connecting stories also became harder due to the new, more diverse creative teams, whereas Byrne had managed most of them on his own. To control consistency in stories, the teams regularly attended a Superman. Which started in 1988. The summit was a unique method of making the writers work together, focusing their attention to the next year’s worth of stories. These meetings were often dysfunctional, with. Noting they frequently disagreed when discussing story ideas and argued until one person was “left standing”. Carlin recalled that he had to act like a “babysitter” for the 18 creators during summits, and the teams often compromised. When the writing teams were having trouble deciding stories, Ordway would jokingly suggest they kill Superman. Liked the success of the three interconnected Superman comics, so a fourth. While the creative teams believed the quality of the comics increased because there were more people working on them, they experienced a decline in sales. Primarily due to the popularity of violent. A new Superman comic was released every week. The writing teams increased the romantic tension between. (Superman’s civilian identity) and. In an effort to make the comics more appealing. Eventually, they had Kent propose to Lane and reveal he was Superman, and began to plan a storyline about their marriage. According to Carlin, they developed the wedding arc between 1990 and 1991, and planned for it to conclude in. They also considered a Death of… Story, but did not work on it in depth. (pictured in 2012) jokingly suggested that DC should kill Superman. While the Superman comics struggled, DC’s sister company. A television series for. Centered around the relationship between Lane and Kent. One of the ideas that arose during production was the wedding of Lane and Kent. Although the series did not exist in the same. As the comics, Warner Bros. Wanted the Superman brand to remain consistent across all forms of media. As a result, Carlin and DC president. Decided to put the wedding in the comics on hold until. Lois & Clark reached its wedding episode in order that the stories could coincide. With the original storyline set aside in the comics, the teams needed a new event to replace it. The postponement disappointed the writing teams, as they had to put aside a year’s worth of story planning and, according to Simonson, essentially had to come up with something at the last minute. At the 1991 summit, Ordway again made his joke, but no one laughed. Simonson spoke up and said, based on her experience from editing. Comics at Marvel, killing a major character show[s] just how much that character means to his friends, family, enemies, to the whole world! Carlin liked the idea. And in the documentary film. Look, Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman. (2006), he recalled, the world was taking Superman for granted, so we literally said’let’s show what the world would be like without Superman’. Jurgens formally pitched “The Death of Superman”. And DC let the project move forward, which shocked Ordway. Prior to moving forward, Carlin asked Siegel if he had any concerns with the concept of killing Superman. Siegel felt it was “a good way to shake things up”; the teams felt better knowing he approved. Bogdanove recalled how the story almost began to write itself, from the end backwards. It felt like a story that could make the readers care again, the way we had always cared about Superman. “The Death of Superman” forced DC to cancel a non- canon. Were working on, as it also featured the character’s death. The initial plan called for Superman to be killed in. #75 (January 1993) and resurrected in. #500, as both were milestone issues. Jurgens created the concepts of a monster tearing apart. And an issue dedicated to a single fight sometime before “The Death of Superman”; the teams combined these when developing the story. Carlin had previously rejected the fight idea whenever Jurgens brought it up, feeling it would not be effective without a good story. When deciding which villain should kill Superman, the writers determined that. Relied too much on technology and intellect, and did not want to use one of them or his traditional. Thus, they concluded that a new villain had to take him on physically. They chose to name this villain Doomsday. ” after Carlin wrote the phrase “doomsday for Superman on the whiteboard used for planning, and did not feel giving him an origin was important. The teams wanted Doomsday to have a distinctive look, so they gave all artists a few minutes to create designs and voted for the one they thought was best. Jurgens’ designa massive, muscular humanoid with bones ripping through his skin, inspired by the design style of. The four issues showing Superman’s fight with Doomsday feature a “countdown” of panels: the first has four per page, the second has three, the third has two, and the last simply comprises. Conceived this, as he thought it would increase the suspense and speed of the action. Furthermore, Jurgens wanted to make an issue told through splash pages and the fight seemed like the perfect fit. The story was partly an effort to show the ramifications of a superpowered fight in a city. Because, as Ordway said, it had to have consequences. The final page of issue #75a triple-page spread depicting Lane mourning Supermantook considerable time to create. The writers wanted “The Death of Superman” to surprise readers, as they hoped to emphasize that Superman is not invincible and could be killed by something besides Kryptonite. #75 (January 1993), depicting Lois Lane mourning the dead Superman. Art by Dan Jurgens and Brett Breeding. Chronicling the fallout of Superman’s death did not take long, according to Bogdanove. He thought, as “the real meat of the story”, it allowed them to accomplish their goal: explaining why the character matters. Ordway recalled the most exciting part for him was exploring what the DC Universe would be like without Superman and had fun writing about other characters’ reactions to his death. DC did not intend for Superman’s death to be permanent and the teams kept this a secret; they signed. Preventing them from revealing the character would return. Carlin expected fans to know the death would be temporary. And in 2018 said he still could not believe many did not. However, the teams delayed all Superman comics for three months to create the illusion that he had really been killed because DC’s. Caused Carlin to delay Superman’s resurrection beyond. Furthermore, the teams knew bringing Superman back in that issue would be illogical and held an emergency summit at a hotel in. Where they plotted the final parts of the story. The teams considered bringing Superman back harder than killing him, as they did not want to make fans feel like they had been cheated. They decided to introduce a new version of Superman before bringing back the original, but the writers each had different ideas. Simonson suggested that each writer create their own Superman, which not only solved the problem of what this new character should be like but also let the creative teams have independence after years of forced collaboration. These characters, known as the Supermen, were created using three existing characters Eradicator. And a new one John Henry Irons. According to Bogdanove, they used the Supermen to reinforce “what makes Superman so super”. Stern characterized Eradicator as an Old Testament. Superman who was more alien than human and compared his character to. He wanted the character to be introduced in a way that readers would not be able to tell he was Eradicator until revealed. Conceived Superboy for another series he pitched to editor. Beforehand and characterized him as an. Jurgens chose to reintroduce Henshaw, whom he created a few years earlier, with his Cyborg Superman. He hoped to trick readers into thinking Henshaw was the real Superman before revealing him as a villain. Simonson and Bogdanove based Irons Steel. , an “everyman as Superman”, on the African American folk hero. And the Marvel character. Additional replacements, including “Little-Boy Superman” and “Rock-Creature Superman” were created but never used. Even if their original idea was altered, each writer maintained a sense of individuality for their Superman. #500 was Ordway’s last issue on the title, as he wanted to spend time with his family. His contract was supposed to expire with issue #499 (February 1993) but he desired to end his run on a “historical” note. Ordway also hoped to use a character from. In issue #500 but was unable to do so because of an editorial mandate barring characters from DC’s mature comics line appearing in mainstream books like. Kesel replaced him afterward. Because Jurgens did not want to simply use Superman’s classic design when he was revived, he gave him long hair. The teams also deepened the red and blue of Superman’s costume to signify that things would not be entirely the same for him. Superman briefly wore a black suit after his revival; this design came from a sketch Bogdanove made at a meeting. “The Death of Superman” was first alluded to in Simonson’s. #17 (November 1992); after the issue’s story, a. Panel shows Doomsday’s fist repeatedly punching a wall. The crossover began the following issue, in which Doomsday is unleashed and begins to carve a brutal path of destruction across America. This leads to Superman’s death in. Which DC published on November 18, 1992. There were several variants of issue #75: a standard newsstand edition; a. Poster, stickers, and a. Which cost more than the standard edition. Following the in-comics funeral, all the Superman publications went on hiatus until the release of. #75, collector’s editions of. #500 came in polybags. One version had a translucent white bag with the red. While another came in a black bag with a white logo. Each installment of the story received a second printing.

Despite these accusations, many view “The Death of Superman” favorably. Sims called the crossover DC’s greatest success of the 1990s and a definitive Superman story. He thought that while killing off an important comics character was not an original idea, “The Death of Superman” was more ambitious and had a greater legacy than other similar events.

Morris did criticize its subplots as nonsensical and felt Doomsday was terribly designed, disagreeing with Sims that it was a definitive Superman story. Salvatore felt it had missed opportunities and criticized the Justice League’s role in the story, comparing them to punching bags. Both Salvatore and Nevett thought Doomsday came out of nowhere. And Nevett joked he was a “walking plot device” rather than a true villain. Disliked the story because he thought it came out of the blue. There was no build-up, no suspense developed.

Note: This is the rare retailer incentive “Platinum” edition that was supposed to be limited to only 10,000 copies. This particular copy is #8114 (it is printed on the back of the bag). Year First Published: 1992. Condition: The comic is still sealed in the black polybag so I can’t really grade it. But from what I can see through the bag and feeling around the edges the book seems fine so it should be in higher grade condition. The black polybag is folded at the top/bottom from being bagged/boarded. Besides that the bag has just light wear from storage and is one of the nicer bags I have seen with this comic.
