When a hulking monster emerges from an underground resting place and begins a mindless rampage, the Justice League is quickly called in to stop the colossal force of nature. But it soon becomes apparent that only Superman can stand against the monstrosity that has been nicknamed Doomsday. Battling their way through America, the two fight to a standstill as they reach the heart of Metropolis. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever.

Violence: Mostly limited to punching, energy beams, and guns. The blood is very minimal. And, as the title suggests, Superman is killed in the end.

Coarse Language: "Damn" and "Oh God" are as strong as it gets.

I'm glad I read this simply because it is such an iconic moment in the Superman franchise, but as for the actual plot it is a poor story. The whole thing comes off as one drawn out fight scene.
