What’s the Meaning of DC’s ‘Doomsday Will Reign’ Teaser?
Yesterday afternoon DC’s The Source blog posted a cryptic image of Superman’s “S” emblem dripping with blood beneath nothing more than the headline “Doomsday Will Reign.” Fans are already tossing out logical ideas for what the image could mean. is it a reference to the recently announced The Death of Superman digital release? An avant-garde ad for Superman’s strawberry preserves? Or is it one of three completely insane choices that only a blogger with an itchy Photoshopping finger would waste time lying about? Let’s go with option #3 after the jump!
An unintended typo within the DC offices results in Warner Bros. Records cutting Doomsday’s club joint “Make it Reign” feat. Lil Wayne. Unamused, Fat Joe calls up his occasional pal Jimmy Olsen, who in turn uses his signal watch to summon the Man of Steel for help. Temporarily lacking the power to flow after exposure to lyrical rampage-muting saffron Kryptonite, Superman recruits the demon Etrigan and producer Batman to track a sick counter jam and settle the feud. The Demon’s old school verses coupled with Supes’ Anti-Life shattering hooks are augmented by the Batcomputer’s Auto-Tune and mixed down again and again until pseudo-evolution somehow makes it more powerful. Once the hit is cut, it’s blasted via Boom Tube at Doomsday, sending him sprawling to the moon where he’s ultimately destroyed. Despite the Daily Planet’s jarring photographic evidence, middle school students spread a rumor that he just faked his death and is living in Paris.
What do you think the fuss is all about?
