However, the most famous instance was the "Death of Superman" StoryArc in the Superman comics during the 1990s, and the animated movie (based on that story) titled ''WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday'' (which started off the WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies line) that came out in 2007. Additionally, the lnie will revisit the story with a more faithful adaptation, split into [[MovieMultipack two parts]], in 2018 and 2019.
