"We remember those who fell during the Last War. Beware Bertron's curse, for he is named Doomsday."
―Translated Kryptonian message[src]

Bertron was a Kryptonian scientist that, during the Last War, produced a deformity with unfathomable power and capacity for destruction.

Biography

The Last War

During the events of the Last War, Kryptonian scientist Bertron created a monstrous creature during an experiment with Kryptonian genetic engineering technology, whose creation would forever be deemed a curse to Kryptonian history.[1]

Legacy

Ever since Bertron's creation, the Council of Krypton strictly forbade the creation of such a hateful deformity again. When advised of this protocol by a Kryptonian service android of Scout Ship 0344, Lex Luthor ignored its warning while creating his own deformity, decades after Krypton's destruction and the end of the Council's ruling, in order to kill the godlike Kryptonian refugee Superman.[2]
