Just over half of you are buying into the rumors, and think that Doomsday will feature in "Batman v Superman". Time will tell...
Interestingly, 13% think it could be some other villain not listed as an option. Let's hear who you guys and girls think it will be.

Last but far from least, Empire boasts another look at Jesse Eisenberg's hip, RAM-brained superbad Lex Luthor. Suitably CEO-ish in bearing and Silicon Valley in garb, he's still lustrously maned - like Professor Xavier in X-Men, the hair gets its own arc in this franchise - and That ape-with-a-detonator T-shirt looks like more than a hint at the thoughts percolating inside his big brain.
I think what it really reflects is the relationship between Lois and Clark, and the whole idea is that I understand what you're saying about the TV show. That show was about their relationship. This book is about their relationship, wrapped in the world of Superman and with the addition of their son Jonathan.
And it is how they live on this world. What are the ramifications of living in this universe where we've seen Superman's secret identity outed? That kind of thing. How have they been able to pull this off? How has no one noticed, "You look kind of like that guy?" That's part of the beard right now, for example.
So it's a very different story, but at its core, it's a family book. It's a family unit. It's Lois and Clark and Jonathan and if you go back to the Convergence issues that I wrote, where Thomas Wayne talked to him about doing what he could do - "whatever you do, keep your child safe" - that's the core of the book in terms of that part of it.
Superman has had a mission here all along, and we're going to explore all of that.
The first storyline, "Before Truth," runs from issue #41-#44. At the end of #44, we'll see Superman the way he is in Action Comics #41 - a depowered, exposed Superman.
What we're really trying to do is get to the core of who Superman is. So we're taking away a lot of his iconic visuals - we took away the spit curl, the cape. We left him with just the "S" and even that's not the same, it's more of the Fleischer "S" from the old animation.
Personally, what do you like best about the Man of Steel?
I have a love of super heroes in general. I started collecting super heroes in the fifth grade and I just loved them. But now as an adult, I look back on that and I wonder if some of it has to do with my being a child of immigrant parents. Superman, Batman, even the heroes from the competition - they were all created by these children of Jewish immigrants. I feel like they've embedded parts of their experience into the genre. And Superman himself is literally an immigrant.
What happens when you combine Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Justice League with the art of origami? You get the most incredible collection of paper-folding projects ever assembled. These 46 models, meticulously designed by internationally renowned origami master John Montroll, are guaranteed to amaze. With clear, step-by-step diagrams and instructions, simple squares of paper transform into Batarangs, S-Shields, Invisible Jets, Green Lanterns, and so much more. Also included in the back of the book are 96 sheets of specially illustrated folding papers to make your DC creations truly come to life. When you fold these models, your friends will believe you're the one with super powers.
Published by Capstone Young Readers, and aimed for fans 8-12 Years (although older fans will no doubt want to get involved too), the "DC Super Heroes Origami" release will be available from September 1st.
But Romita promises there's a "a very, very well-done explanation. It's not what you'd expect and everybody's making a concerted effort to not make people's eyes roll: 'Oh God, the same old (stuff) again.' It's difficult with a character this iconic and this old."
Even with that coming between them, the artist says that Clark will still have an unavoidable connection with Lois - especially since he's become more humanized in every way recently.
Romita and previous Superman writer Geoff Johns introduced a new ability to the hero's arsenal - a supremely powerful solar flare - that leaves him powerless for a time. He and Yang are now building on that: "He's not going to be great at realizing he's a little slower and weaker than he used to be," the writer says, "and that will have consequences."

"Superman has been part of my life since 1956. I hope that if you listen to the podcast you will enjoy my little babbles but will also understand why Superman has meant so much to me for almost 60 years." - Bob Fisher.
In Episode 93 of the Superman Forever Radio podcast Bob Fisher takes a closer look at the Batman v Superman SDCC trailer. Bob also catches up with the TRUTH storyline in Action Comics #42 but mostly he talks about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer and gives his opinions of the trailer and what may be in store for the movie itself. Is Bob looking forward to the movie or are his feelings about the movie the same as his feelings for the current storyline in the comics?
