Who's Who in the Superman Comics

Magog

Magog

In the Kingdom Come story line, when the Joker comes to Metropolis and slays the staff of the Daily Planet (including Superman's wife, Lois Lane), Superman adheres to his traditional moral code and turns him over to the police. Magog, a vigilante meta-human, having a radically different set of ethics, foregoes due process and kills the Joker right before Superman's eyes. Magog is brought on trial, but, to Superman's horror, is acquited - society condones the murder. No longer able to relate to this culture, Superman retires, leaving Magog as the pre-eminent superhero. However, Superman comes out of retirment when Magog's methods have finally gone too far. Magog's "Justice Battalion" inadvertantly caused an atomic explosion which resulted in the destruction of Kansas. When Superman does finally confront Magog, the brutal hero is horribly haunted by his mistakes: "A million ghosts. Punish me. Lock me away. Kill me. Just make the ghosts go away". In this mental state, Magog is no longer a threat.

Magog's First Appearance: Kingdom Come #1 (1996)
