My idea would not meet DC approval, but always thought that it would be neat if New earth Supes had died battling that DD, so acxtually history would have been the same up to that point, and then His resurrection would have been as young kal, ushering in the NU 52, that the Spectre or Presense had redone reality!


I don't know what to say about the subject when the publisher is firmly sending out two completely opposing views on the question.
The original thought behind keeping Death of Superman in-continuity was apparently based on it being such a monumental story; though since this is a whole new canon and reboot that urge to keep it as a part of the new history makes no sense in practical terms. It would have made more sense to just retell the story as a part of the new ongoing narrative, which to a degree is what Superman:Doomed is all about.
But since Doomsday is such a one-dimensional character, who's entire impact and importance stems from that now deleted 20 year old story where he was Superman's ultimate challenge... well, he's like the new Superboy - What is the point of him? \(euh\)
