Krypton‘s Doomsday scene is a good homage to the Superman comics, although not entirely in line with the source material that it’s referencing. For starters, Doomsday was imprisoned in a containment chamber buried deep beneath the Earth, not in a blood sealed vault on planet Krypton. That said, the creature’s origins do originate on the planet, so it’s not as though the Syfy series was disrespectful to the character’s mythos in twisting his story a little bit. For all the liberties the show took with changing up Doomsday’s story, it’s nice to see the writers still took time to write in a much-loved part from the comics to pay homage to past lore:
