2010 "DCUniverse Vol 6: Supervillians" by alexmax

Featuring both Doomsday and Darkseid, of whom the artist said...

Darkseid: OK, technically he is a villian of the New Gods, but since the New Gods are kinda lame (sorry Kirby fans) Darkseid has been linked to Superman for decades. Just imagine the ultimate evil of the DC Universe is a Superman bad guy... yep, Superman's rogue gallery is weak.

Doomsday: Not really a character and more of a plot device. Thing is there are limits to what you can do with what, essencially, is Hulk without Bruce Banner. When done right it can be good (Hunter/Prey, Doomsday Rex, maybe Death of Superman) when not, it's horrible (almost everything else). Lately Doomsday has been reduced to a joke. And yet he remains memorable enough, due to cool visuals.
