    Default Doctor Doom Appreciation 2022 - Scientist, Sorcerer, Romani, King


    Romani, Sorcerer, Scientist, King




    Welcome fellow Minions of Doom to the latest iteration of the Doctor Doom Appreciation thread where we discuss All Things Doom and pay homage to the most Dangerous Man Alive in the Marvel Universe. Created by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Doom had his first appearance over 60 years ago in Fantastic Four #5 . For the benefit of any fledgling Doomophiles, here is a brief recap of the awesome origin of Doctor Doom by Artist Jim Cheung and written by Allen Heinberg as featured in Avengers: Children's Crusade #3. (as seen in Fantastic Four Annual #2 and Books of Doom #1-2)

    Doctor Doom reading list by DoomScribe


    Fantastic Four - Annual 2 1964 Stan Lee/ Jack Kirby “Origin of Doctor Doom”; & “The Final Victory of Dr. Doom!” (2 new stories) Origin story. Then rescued from space (issue 23) by Rama Tut; Dr Doom uses berry juice to turn FF against each other; but defeated by Reed at the Encephalo-gun. **

    Marvel Superheroes 20 May, 1969 Roy Thomas/ Larry Lieber “This Man . . . This Demon!” Diablo. Retells Doom’s origin and the story of Valeria, as Diablo seeks a partnership to rule using Doom’s time platform, currently under armed guard at his replica castle in the USA. **

    Fantastic Four 86 May, 1969 Stan Lee/ Jack Kirby “The Victims!” The FF & villagers defeat Omnipurpose robots; Doom destroys the village but Sue’s shield saves them. **
    Fantastic Four 87 June, 1969 Stan Lee/ Jack Kirby “The Power and the Pride!” The FF storm the castle; Doom uses hypersound against Hauptmann to prevent destruction of valuable art. **

    Astonishing Tales 1 Aug., 1970 Roy Thomas/ Wally Wood “Unto You is Born . . the Doomsman!” Prince Rudolfo. Doom creates an artificial being using cosmic power and his own brain patterns; Ramona who looks like Valeria, sets a trap. **
    Astonishing Tales 2 Oct., 1970 Roy Thomas/ Wally Wood “Revolution!“ The Faceless One. Former Crown Prince Rudolfo seeks to usurp the throne of Latveria, aided by the mysterious Faceless, while the android Doomsman runs amok, toppling all in it’s path. **
    Astonishing Tales 3 Dec., 1970 Larry Lieber/ Wally Wood “Doom Must Die!” Doom and Faceless struggle for control of Doomsman; an earthquake destroys Castle Doom & the hopes of the Rudolfo’s rebels. **
    Astonishing Tales 5 Apr., 1971 Larry Lieber/ George Tuska “A Land Enslaved!” Red Skull. Doom battles Skull, is caught by surprise and trapped in an adamantine mummy, but he defeats them & uses shrinking ray on his enemies. **
    Astonishing Tales 8 Oct., 1971 Gerry Conway/ Gene Colan “Though Some Call it Magic!” Mephisto. Doom embarks on a dangerous battle with demons on a midsummer’s eve for the soul of his lost mother. The first telling of this tragic tale. *******

    Fantastic Four 116 Nov., 1971 Archie Goodwin/ John Buscema. “The Alien, The Ally and Armageddon!” The Watcher, and the Stranger. Reed is brainwashed by the alien Over-Mind (an Eternal), and Sue asks Doom to aid the rest of the FF in a desperate battle. *******

    Sub-Mariner 47 (vol 1) Mar-72 “Doomsmasque”
    Sub-Mariner 48 (vol 1) Apr-72 “Twilight of the Hunted”
    Sub-Mariner 49 (vol 1) May-72 “The Dream Stone” Sort of a campy story when read now, but overall an interesting take on these two titanic monarchs of the Marvel Universe told over three issues. An amnesiac Namor is re-acquainted with Doctor Doom, and taken on a hunt for the Cosmic Cube! With Modok. And contains a remarkably restrained, honorable, and self-reflective portrayal of Victor Von Doom.
    Marvel Team-Up 42 Feb., 1976 Bill Mantlo/ Sal Buscema “Visions of Hate!” Spidey has time traveled to the time of the Salem Witch Trials. The Vision is drawn into the conflict with the Dark Rider. Doom joins them to defend the past. **

    Super-Villain Team-Up 10 Feb.,1977 Bill Mantlo/ Bob Hall “The Sign of the Skull!” Captain American storms the Latverian embassy while Shroud and Rudolfo invade castle Doom, now controlled by Red Skull, who shoots down Doom & Cap’s plane. *****

    Secret Wars 1 – 12 (Limited Series) May 1984. Heroes and Villains are transported to Battleworld by the all powerful Beyonder, in order to battle to see who is the most powerful. Doom ostensibly leads the villains, all while plotting to take the power of Galactus, and then the Beyonder himself. ***

    Emperor Doom (Graphic Novel) Jun-87 Dr Doom has harnessed the power of the Purple Man, and has declared himself Emperor of the Earth, instilling peace and prosperity throughout the world. But one Avenger must decide whether to take the power away from him, and risk returning the world to one of strife and conflict. Stars the Avengers. *******
    Triumph and Torment (Graphic Novel) 1989 Roger Stern/Mike Mignola/Mark Badger. Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange battle Mephisto in order to free the soul of Doom’s mother from his infernal realm. Includes a synopsis origin story for each of the good doctors. ********

    Amazing Spider-Man 349 July, 1991 “Man Of Steal!”
    Amazing Spider-Man 350 Aug, 1991 “Doom Service!” Remarkable appearance for Doom’s ultimate restraint, and also for quite thoroughly kicking Peter’s butt. ****

    Doom 2099 1 – 40 January 1993 Sometimes brilliant, ended too soon. Issues after #40 are best left unread. ******

    Heroes Reborn: DOOM one shot, January 2000 “Doom!” ******

    Heroes Reborn: Doomsday one shot, January 2000 “A World Untamed” ******

    Doom: The Emperor Returns 1 – 3 (Limited Series); January 2002 ** (ends poorly)

    Books of Doom 1 – 6 (Limited Series); November 2005. An expanded re-telling of the rise of Victor Von Doom, and the conquest of Latveria. Great new insights, fabulous art, very well done and highly recommended. *******

    Stan Lee Meets Doctor Doom – one shot December 2006. *** Amusing and ties in to continuity in interesting ways.

    Iron Man: Legacy of Doom 1 – 4 (Limited Series) April 2008; Iron Man and Doctor Doom tangle again over fragments of Excalibur, magic and science do battle. ****

    Doctor Doom & the Masters of Evil 1 – 4 (Limited Series) January 2009 **** A fun mini series aimed at all ages. Great individual moments downgraded by inconsistent art.

    Fall of Hulks: Alpha one shot, Feb-10 “Meeting of the Minds” The Intelligentsia gather knowledge from the world, Doom keeps it. Fall of Hulks was difficult to follow unless you got all of the Hulk titles, but this one-shot was a particularly nice showing for Doom. **

    Spider-Man & the Secret Wars 1 – 4 (Limited Series) January 2010 Another all-ages title, recaps Secret Wars from Spider-Mans POV, with Dr Doom; again providing a new take on a classic story. ****

    ___________________________

    Doctor Doom series (2019-2020) Interviews with Christopher Cantwell

    WMQ Comics: Christopher Cantwell opens up on 'She Could Fly', 'Doom' and 'Everything' My favorite quote from this article "The character is dangerously arch, and you have to be careful writing him for a media-savvy audience in 2020. There has to be just enough self-awareness and humor. There has to be humanity without making him needlessly gooey. The villainy can be amped now to pretty high levels, to remind people that he’s a bad person, in a real world that is increasingly run by very bad people. To me, Doom is both Dr. Frankenstein and the Monster. He is able to love, but he feels he is unable to be loved" (January 24, 2020)

    THE PRONOUNCENTS OF DOOM





    I was a God, Valeria. I found it beneath me (Fantastic Four #611)

    Doom is no man's second choice (New Avengers #24)

    There is no good in me, Kang. There never was. And there never shall be. (Doctor Doom #10)

    Doom: Isn't that what so many of you constantly waste your time doing? Trying to save me?
    Stark: You're right. Maybe it's time we all gave up on that
    (King in Black: Iron Man/Doctor Doom)

    My greatest flaw...I surround myself with idiots - Emperor Doom

    " King of Space?" "Master of the Sun"? You claim such vast dominions. Is it to balance your small souls? Could I not lay claim to the light and the void, if I wished it? Have I not earned such titles? I, who have mastered all arts, all sciences, all secrets? Whose technology and magic cross the stars as easily as they scramble an alpha telepath's mind? Who would dare to say I have not earned the right? Yet I am king of only a simple nation. On a simple planet. A beloved garden tended by iron hands. And the only title I have ever claimed... is doctor. - Guardians of the Galaxy (2021) #13

    I trust you enjoyed that last witticism -- for it is the last you shall ever utter - Fantastic Four #40

    You blundering atavism! Brute strength can never triumph against the power of supremely harnessed science! - Fantastic Four #40 again. Stan was on a roll.

    The King of Latveria is no common murderer. If I cannot magnificently win a victory, it affords me little pleasure to slay a foe merely slay a foe - Daredevil #38 Stan strikes again!

    You think you have known fear. You think you have known oppression. You have not yet known Doom - Doom #1 (2003)

    Dracula! Cease trying to eat me you undead idiot! - Dark Ages #6 (2022)

    Doctor Doom and his too loyal servant and herald Zora on the page from the upcoming Reckoning War event.
    I don't think Doom will play a big role in the story, but this is a big F4 event and that means Doom should be here.
    FANTASTICFOUR2021001020-low.jpg

    Dan Slott brought Doom back to the stutus quo as ruler of Latveria and F4's greatest enemy, Chris Cantwell told Doom's deep and interesting personal story, Al Ewing cemented him as the greatest manipulator in the Marvel Universe - let's see what awaits us this year!

    Here are Doom's first new appearances of 2022 and the previews look pretty good.

    CBR has an exclusive first look




    Darkhold Omega is also out next week. I've not seen any previews with Doom but I'm pretty sure he should be showing up there. We do see Victorious in this preview and at least she still sounds loyal to Doom.

    Happy New year everyone!

    2022 is the year of Doom! for me at least as I try to read as many of his comics as I can, I started with his first appearance in Fantastic Four #5 and realized he had a helicopter long before Thanos did XD

    Yeah, Thanos has always been a Doom WannaBe Just joking, Thanos fans! I think the ThanosCopter first showed up in Spidey Super Stories. I had to look twice when it showed up in a area with a lot of debris in the Loki series on HBO.

    Maybe I should add the Doom copter to the top of this thread! Having never seen the inside of a Fantastic Four #5 original comic from 1961, I have to wonder if the copter changed colors between panels in the comic itself and why did the colorist change it? Oh well...
