Magog is a fictional character in the comic books published by DC Comics, generally as an enemy and foil personality of Superman. He first appeared in Kingdom Come #1, and was created by Mark Waid and Alex Ross. In 2009, Magog was ranked as IGN’s 75th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time. In Kingdom Come, Magog’s lack of conventional heroic qualities of idealism puts him at odds with Superman’s morality. After taking over Superman’s place within the world’s superhero community, his reckless actions with other would-be superheroes ultimately caused a nuclear disaster in Midwestern United States; overwhelmed by guilt, he then realizes that Superman was right and seeks to atone for his crimes. In 2008, a parallel universe version of the character is introduced in DC Comics’ main continuity; his destiny seemingly parallel to the original version’s and some fear him due to their awareness of his counterpart’s actions, yet granting him a benefit of doubt to prove himself as a true hero differs from his doppelgänger.
