Superman Is shown In these recent issues of the popular comic book Superman killed in brawl with fugitive? Associated Press NEW YORK — Deader than a '. doornail. Unable to leap anything : from 6 feet under. It's a corpse. It's , a cadaver. It's Superman! Clark Kent's alter ego ia headed to the superhero hereafter. "It is going to happen. Superman is going to die in issue No. 75, in a fight with this Doomsday guy," a despondent DC Comics spokeswoman, Martha Thomases, said Friday. What? The Dead Man of Steel? Curtains for the last Kryptonian? Holy funeral... oops, wrong comic. But don't close the coffin on Metropolis' main man just yet. Yes, he will die, says DC Comics Superman Editor Mike CarHn. But who knows what win happen after that? "He's the only Kryptonian left. We don't know what death means to a Kryptonian," Cariin told Advance Comics, an Illinois-based trade publication that broke the story. "Death is final for Earthlings, death has been final for the Kryp- tonians whose planet blew up, but you never know. "Like I said, never say never. Never say we wouldn't kill Superman, never say we wouldn't bring him back." The superhero, whose death battle with Doomsday will arrive in stores Nov. 18, is definitely dead through March 1993, Thomases said. "I don't know the schedule through all eternity, but I know it through March, and there's no Superman," she said. Superman fans are not pleased. Thomases has received calls from England, Germany and all over the world about the Super-slaying. Their hero has been on the case for DC since 1938, splitting his time between saving the world and writing for the Daily Planet. He recent- ly became engaged to Lois Lane. And suddenly he's just DEAD? "Somebody's already called and said they're going to organize a boycott of Time Warner," said Thomases, mindful that the last guy to elicit that response was Ice- T. "But we're not advocating the killing of Kryptonians. We're just representing it." Earlier this year, media conglomerate Time Warner Inc. — which owns DC Comics — was criticized and threatened with a boycott over Ice-T's rap song "Cop Killer." After years of defeating bad guys Superman meets his match in Doomsday, a nasty purveyor of death and destruction. Doomsday has escaped from a cosmic'lunatic asylum; Superman goes down saving as many people as possible from Doomsday's wrath. Dennis L. Hatherill, M.S., C.C.C.-A. Betsy A. Hatherill, M.S., C.C.C.-A.
