Superman/Doomsday

Question: After the "death" of Superman, why did Jimmy take a job at another paper?

Answer: It was his way of coping with grief after Superman dies. Jimmy felt he needed to be in a new environment, away from painful memories. Similarly, Perry White turned to alcohol for solace, while Lois Lane sought out Clark's mother, Martha Kent for help.

Question: In the film, Doomsday is described as being a machine, designed to be the ultimate warrior but could not distinguish between friend and foe, and thus exists to destroy any and all life. Is that how it was in the comic, even the machine part?

Chosen answer: When they call Doomsday a machine, they don't mean a literal machine. Just that he was built/designed. The comics were much the same. Doomsday was created by placing a baby on the most dangerous planet in the universe, and cloning that baby every time it died, forcing it to adapt. Doomsday eventually escaped this torture.

Question: So how exactly did Doomsday's ship get buried so deep? On the movie the Project Apple Core workers say they discover it's "before Christ deep", but don't specify exactly how old. And they are 2 miles down at the time. Lex Luthor interprets the alien hologram as a warning and says that an alien race must have trapped Doomsday here because they could not kill it. And later the robot at the Fortress of Solitude identifies Doomsday and tells Superman what it is. I know there are several differences between the film and the comics it's based on. Are there differences in how Doomsday got there and how is it so deep?

Answer: In the comic book, Doomsday was put in a strait-jacket, strapped in metal bondage and placed in a cube like metal prison buried deep in the earth. It took him centuries just to break the bonds, then spent more centuries just punching his way out. With earthquakes, volcanoes and other natural disasters those events could shift Doomsday's prison to the surface.

Superman/Doomsday mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Doomsday has a bone spike protruding up from each of his 4 knuckles. But when Doomsday grabs Superman by the head and draws back to punch him hard in the face, the spike on his thumb is missing. Superman catches his fist, and in that shot you can see two more of the spikes have vanished, and Doomsday only has one over his middle knuckle. (00:23:55)
