The event series will pit Superman against Dr. While the series appears top be building to a showdown of the ages, it probably wouldn't be a surprise if the climax involves something other than a knockdown battle between the Man of Steel and the Watchmen universe's post powerful being. Manhattan is, after all, an unprecedented power, and Ozymandias knew it was necessary to remove him from Earth if he hoped to pull off his grand scheme. He hoped to end the human drive towards nuclear war by providing the Earth with a common enemy: alien outsiders. Ozymandias had developed a genetically engineered squid monster that would kill millions in a massive blast. Over two years since it started bringing the DC Universe and the world of Watchmen together, Doomsday Clock has finally come to an end with the final meeting between the iconic characters of the two comic book universes. Following the release of the final issue, Geoff Johns stated that he and Gary Frank were considering the possibility of a sequel for Doomsday Clock. As a possible reward for Superman's faith and inspiration, Manhattan changes history, and an older Jonathan and Martha visiting Clark and Lois in Metropolis as if they had never died tragically at all.
