He is such a powerful character an is one-man army of mass destruction. He has immortality, reactive adaptation, accelerated healing, controlled bone growth, super strength, invulnerability, enhanced stamina, and super speed.
He is the main enemy in a story arc event labeled "Doomed" which was written by Scott Lobdell, Charles Soule, Greg Pak, and penciled by Ken Lashley. Someone has let Doomsday out of his prison and its up to Superman, Wonder Woman, and a few other heroes to stop him. In his first few appearances in the New 52 he is shown killing animals and soldiers, seemingly feeding and growing stronger. His appearance changes after a few issues and it is revealed that Doomsday does not want to fight Superman and he cites not being strong enough yet to do so. Doomsday manages to be on Earth for a few seconds in which he attacks soldiers and Wonder Woman shows up to help. After a few minutes Wonder Woman doesn't go full power and Doomsday and he takes advantage and breaks both of her arms. When it looks like he might have a chance to kill her, he loses his ability to stay on Earth and finds himself again in the Phantom Zone. Later he is seen teleporting all over the planet Earth and he is killing people to get stronger through a process that is not touched on in depth. Through his death field which works as an aura around him that he gives off, people, plants, and animals die. Even buildings start to corrode away with just his presence around. Superman eventually finds him and decides to let lose because he knows that if he doesn't, the entire Earth could be in jeopardy. So he speed blitzes Doomsday to Venus in seconds and they battle it out there. The battle appears to be even with each character landing blows and the death field eating away at Superman's body and armor. Then Superman uses his heat vision and blasts him into near nothing-ness and returns to Earth where he thinks he has returned victorious. In that instant Doomsday teleports to Earth and begins attacking Superman again hurting him badly. Superman then decides this needs to end quickly or people will die. In a shocking move Superman rips Doomsday in half with his bare hands and uses his super breath to inhale the death field that is still present in the air from Doomsday's body. This is only the beginning as Superman then becomes infected with the Doomsday virus and he starts to go through changes . These changes are not only superficial. His personality starts to change and he becomes more violent. These events coincide with Brainiac's arrival and eventually Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, the Outlaws, and Steel help Superman defeat Brainiac by using a black hole, which coincidentally heals Superman of the Doomsday virus. Doomsday will make cameos in the upcoming Convergence story arc event.
