    I've been trying to think who that Symkarian girl is but I can't recall that. I do recall the time he was engaged to Shalla Bal but in a double reverse, she was first revealed to be just a Latverian woman who looked like her. Then Mephisto showed up at the end to reveal to the reader that it was Shalla Bal and that she was mind wiped to think she was a Latverian woman who was brainwashed into thinking she was an imposter.

    That's a deep cut, going way back to the Silver Age. I wonder if he'll throw in Reed in Doom's armor marrying Sue, because for all appearances it was Doom who married Sue.

    UGH! Stories involving mind transference always makes me queasy.
    But I'll admit, Daredevil #37 & #38 were a rather enjoyable reading experience (IMHO):

    I would imagine when Doom found out he would use his power in Latveria to annul that marriage. Thanks for reminding me about the other story where Doom used the Ovid mind transfer. I forgot about that one. I remember Johnny was freaked out being in Doom's body because he had body hair! I guess Johnny was still an adolescent back in that story since it did take place in the past.

    I know a lot of people put down the storytelling style of the Silver Age but IMO a lot of Stan Lee's scripts work pretty well today.

    I meant no offense, Iron Maiden. I adore that type of writing (especially Stan Lee):



    However, switching minds is a trope that I could never fully embrace.

    Which is funny because the few shirtless Doom scenes I've seen (Secret Wars and the infamous naked lion wrestling) he isn't hirsute.

    Not many men were drawn that way in the comics...maybe Sgt. Fury?

    But then I remembered in Infamous Iron Man there was a scene in issue #3 with Amara and a shirtless Doom. And the definitely has a hairy chest here. Then a few issues later it's bare again. Maybe most of the time he gets it waxed .

    I guess we'll have to keep an eye on what happens at the Hellfire Gala being tossed by the Hellfire Trading Company. There's 13 different titles tied in to this so I hope he will only be in S.W.O.R.D since that is the only comic I've seen him mentioned in the advance solicitations.

    I am way behind on the X-Men but I do see from previews that Sebastian Shaw is still around but he's in a wheelchair. Here is an "interview" with Emma Frost by Ben Urich, the best known reporter in the Marvel Universe . It's from the free handout last week The Hellfire Gala Official Guide.

    Emma seems a bit more tolerant of Doom these days. I wonder if Namor has been invited to this....he and Emma were pretty close a while back.

    FIVE ... Five covers, four variants to Fantastic Four 32. All of them feature Doom. So, yeah, I got them all ... $$$ <weeping>

    But check it out - notice a difference? The first one is the one promoted, the second is the scan.

    This one is my favorite, although the Kirby one is the one most valuable, apparently

    I should have gotten the Kirby one but picked the Ron Lim one. I wonder if I go back to the LCS if they will have the Kirby one still there. I'm not seeing a difference in the Skottie Young covers except the color pink being darker. Is there something I'm missing?
