7. “Superman” Vol. 2, No. 75, 1993
In “The Death of Superman,” a massively popular story line in 1992-93, Superman battles Doomsday, a killing machine from prehistoric Krypton who lays waste to the American Midwest and defeats the Justice League with one hand literally tied behind his back. Big Blue and the archvillain face off in a bloody fight in front of the Daily Planet building, and Superman stops Doomsday, but at the expense of his own life. “Most will remember this sad day as the day the proudest, most noble man they ever knew finally fell,” the captions in the comic’s final pages read. The cover, by Dan Jurgens and Brett Breeding, honors the hero and mourns his fall. (DC Entertainment)
