I believe Doctor Octopus is also a New Yorker, or at least he always appears there in Spider-Man comics. Juggernaut is a random choice IMO and many would say Doctor Doom is also.

    There was a column about this story by long time contributor Brian Cronin (one of the few left from the days when the site was owned by Jonah Weiland) where he links to an interview where JRjr explains the origins of this page and why Doom is shown crying.






    I think JR jr explanation works. It was his way of capsulizing the horror of that day that when a great evil failed to conquer us.


    Images like this is why i will always stan JRJR. That and looking at his pencils taught me the beauty of grids.

    Yes, I have to say I am glad to see JRjr back at Marvel and on the Fantastic Four. I really liked his ASM run with JMS...in spite of One More Day

    OMD happened long after JRJR finished his run on Amazing with JMS.

    I was checking out some things on eBay and noticed these two variant covers for Fantastic Four #33. I never saw these anywhere and it looks like they are exclusives to certain comic shops. One is available at Forbidden Planet.


    I like this one and its frame. Scott Eaton is the artist



    Carlos Pacheco is the artist on this one. It's looks like it was inspired by Jack Kirby's cover from FF #84

    As long as he doesn't drink too much and get them all bloodshot

    I see where Doom has acquired the services Felicia Hardy aka the Black Cat to help Monica Rappaccini (there's a name that I've not encountered in a while) overcome her cancer. Let's see if this develops into a a permanent position for Monica. She's one of the few female high level scientists in the MU.

    The second one reminds me of 'Terror in a Tiny Town', one of my favorite FF stories!

    Thanks for posting that Reviresco! I just saw this on the Marvel Website this morning. It is a great looking cover. I like how it shows their version of Mount Rushmore still under construction. I recall in this version of Doom was married to Emma Frost. I got a kick out of it because Doom ruled the Midwestern part of the United States and I do live in the Midwest

    This AU certainly has a long history, going all the way back to the story of Clyde Wyncham in Mark Millar's "1985" mini-series. He also brought it into his Fantastic Four run.

    Yes that could be another reference. But in this case, Doom symbolically looms large over everyone in Doomstadt, just like Jack Kirby's cover for Fantastic Four #84

    It's only taken almost 2 years but Doom finally rejoins the Savage Avengers in December. I'm glad the same team Gerry Duggan and Patrick Zircher is on the title




    The team-up of Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange is always a treat but throwing Conan in the mix really added a crazy twist to things.

    How likely do you think Doctor Doom shows up in Strange 2? Rumors about "Fox characters" seem to be picking up some steam. I just can't see mutants appearing in MoM. And of all the non-mutant characters that Fox used previously, I believe Victor was the only one who could actually use magic. It would kind of make sense to me that he would be there.

    I'd love to see it but at most I think we get a name drop and even that is suspicious. The movie is already way too crowded according to rumours and anything more can take the spotlight away from Strange in his own movie. I think they will introduce Doom in the post credit scene of the first FF movie and build him up or he may even get his own movie (this is more of a wish on my part). That said I'm down for a magical tournament starring both Doom and Strange à la DS & DD Triumph and Torment down the road.
