DC Comics Universe and Doomsday Clock #8 Spoilers follows.
Do We Get Doctor Manhattan Vs. Superman? How Many Of The Watchmen Characters Appear This Issue?
Well, Doomsday Clock #8 leaked earlier. Word circling the internet is that someone in Russia was able to purchase a digital copy. We haven’t spoiled the main plotline developments and revelations prior to the book’s official release today on December 5, 2018; we’ll take a crack at that later this morning. However, we have been revealing some interesting Easter Eggs and/or moments that whet your appetite for the book.
Well, that being said, following the first revelation concerning Justice Society of America / JSA Rebirth in this book (spoilers here), plus the interesting Black Adam of Shazam lore appearance (spoilers here) and which super-humans he’s given asylum to in his country of Kahndaq (spoilers here), the Firestorm revelations (spoilers here) including a teased big secret (spoilers here), an interesting Batman / Superman moment (spoilers here) including confirmation of how the world sees Superman (spoilers here), and the revelation on when in 2019 this issue takes place (spoilers here), readers also learn whether the book’s main cover reflects the contents in the book. And the answer is “partially” per the below panels.
There are literally only two panels in the book with a Watchmen character on it.
It’s not Doctor Manhattan as teased on the cover, but the other tease from the cover, the puppet master Ozymandias.
