Sideshow Collectibles is now taking pre-orders for the Superman vs Doomsday 1:10 Scale Statue by Iron Studios.
In a set of complete chaos and destruction in the streets of Metropolis, amidst concrete hubris and rebars, among twisted metal girder with the letters of the rest of the globe logo of the Daily Planet newspaper, two titans from planet Krypton fight in a deadly combat. On one side, the superhero of the superheroes, Earth’s protector and defender, wearing his unmistakable blue and red classic costume, showing off with pride the coat of arms of his biological family on his chest, a shield in the shape of a diamond symbol of justice and hope. On the other side, an out-of-control brutal monster, a creation from the insane and irresponsible mind of a geneticist, born from an inhuman experiment, enhanced with pain and violence to be an instrument of pure destruction. Inspired by one of the most emblematic stories of the Man of Steel in the comic books, Iron Studios proudly present the “Superman vs Doomsday – DC Comics Iron Studios Exclusive 10 Years – Art Scale 1:10 Statue”, one of the exclusive releases celebrating the 10 years of Iron Studios, that portray some of the most praised and award-winning Legacy Replica 1:4, Battle Diorama 1:6, and Prime Scale 1:3 statues in the Art Scale 1:10 format.
Originally published from December of 1992 to October of 1993, much more than a comic book cross-over, “The Death of Superman” became a milestone in the character’s story, with facts and changes that reverberate to this very day. Divided among three story arcs, the first tells the story of Superman’s fight against the monster that ends in his apparent death. The story was adapted to many formats of media, including books, a videogame, two adaptations in animated feature films (2007 and 2018), besides inspiring the script of TV shows such as “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”, “Smallville” and the movies “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”. Created in 1938 by Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, and considered by many as the first superhero, Superman is Kal-El, the last son from planet Krypton. Sent to Earth as a baby, he was found by a couple of farmers that raised him, and as an adult, he took on the identity of the reporter Clark Kent. Thanks to the radiation on Earth’s solar system, he developed incredible superpowers, and became the world’s greatest hero. Doomsday was artificially created in a distant past in Krypton, by a geneticist called Bertron. Wishing to create the definitive life form, he and his team sent a baby to the planet’s surface, where he was instantly killed by the hostile environment and cruel predators. After that, every single time, the remains were collected and used again in a cloning method to accelerate his evolution. After decades forced to endure agony thousands of times; his uncontrollable deaths were recorded in his genes and led him to hate all the life. Doomsday got the ability to evolve without the help of Bertron’s technology and started to hunt and kill all the lethal creatures that inhabited Krypton. When he saw Bertron, Doomsday considered him and his team to be a threat due to their roles in many deaths, and attacked the ship they were working on, and everyone died in the hands of their creation.
