If you’re not a comic book fan, there’s a chance you didn’t even catch Doomsday’s name. The only allusion to it is when Lex Luthor proclaims to Superman that the monster is “your doomsday” with a lowercase “d.” In the film, Doomsday doesn’t survive the night, but he has a robust presence in the Superman comics. Here’s what you need to know:
Superman is an alien with superhuman powers, which means many of his foes cannot match him and instead rely on technology or tricks to trip up the Man of Steel. Not so for Doomsday, who was created—at least in the comics—on Krypton and equals Superman in strength. In fact, he kills Superman in a storyline dubbed, “The Death of Superman.” (More on that later.)
Doomsday, an unthinking creature, is hellbent on killing everyone and everything in his path. He is a massive blob monster with bones protruding from his body.

In Batman and Superman , Lex Luthor creates Doomsday using his own DNA, that of the dead General Zod (an alien from Krypton you may remember as the bad guy from Man of Steel) and Kryptonian technology. But this origin diverges from the comic books.
In the comics, Doomsday was born during prehistoric times on Krypton. An alien scientist named Bertron conducted a series of cruel experiments on a humanoid infant in which it is killed over and over again until it evolved into Doomsday (then known as The Ultimate). Doomsday eventually kills Bertron. He’s nicknamed Doomsday by the media after he comes to earth.
