It's the middle of August, and that means the solicits for November are beginning to pop up.
Newsarama has solicits for two of their most popular villains.
Doom and Magneto





"DOOMED TO HELL!"

VICTOR VON DOOM #1 (of 4)
Written by NICK SPENCER
Art & Cover by BECKY CLOONAN
NOVEMBER 2011



Oh shit.

From that article:

"We spoke with the team for the exclusive announcement of Magneto's first feature series since 2000's Magneto: Dark Seduction. The solicitation text says Magneto is caught on-camera killing humans. While the creative team couldn't talk much about what this means for his membership with the X-Men, they were able to talk about who he is as a character and tease a few other characters that might be showing up, as well as, for Young, switching sides in a way of his own."

I may wait for trades, but the teams behind these stories are quite capable.

I'm a bit tired of this. I'm glad Rogue, Emma, and Omega Sentinel all became X-Men and stayed that way (minus a virus for poor OS *sad face*). Awesome. They've become amazing characters for it. Danger... well, I like the idea of her as the Mutant Warden. I wouldn't mind seeing her explored some more.

But Sabretooth, Juggernaut, Lady Mastermind, Frenzy, Magneto (a few times, now)...

I'm just not really surprised anymore when some of these more obviously shady characters end up going eveil again. I mean, what did the X-Men honestly expect? Yes, he brought back Kitty. After that? BAM, he's now in on every major meeting and one of the top brass on Utopia. At what point did that seem a wise idea to Scott?

I'm pretty sure it's bait and switch this time, though. If Mags still wants to stay in Utopia, even if for reasons of his own, then even if he let his psychotic side free like this he'd have some very easy ways to make sure he wouldn't be caught on film.

Generally I agree, though.

The solution should be to stop trying to force them into heroic roles, when they know that some writer or editor is going to come along sooner or later and say, "I liked Magneto more as a villain, so a villain he shall be."

It just makes the X-Men look like fucking morons when it happens. And then it happens again.... And again.

It's a teen Doom flashback series. It has been established that he was incredibly handsome before the accident.

Doom was always supposed to be ridiculously good-looking, at least pre-hideous scarring.

From: [personal profile] nomadicwriter
I am so excited for this Doom series. There was an interview with the creators on CBR where they name-checked several of my favourite ever Doom series and Cloonan talked about it being basically her dream comic. I have wanted more of Doom's side of him and Reed at college for years, and this looks like it could be exactly the kind of take on it I'm looking for.

with that skintone and shock of hair, teen!Doom looks like Homestuck fanart.

I wonder if Magneto's recorded killing's going to be an affair that escalates too quickly and uncontrollably, or just "somebody caught him killing some murderous Purifiers (or whoever murderous) out of context"..

Doctor Doom is my favorite comicbook villain, so I'm always hungry for a new mini. I wonder though, where in the Books of Doom it takes place. After his father died from frostbite and he led the Latverian gypsies in Guerilla warfare?

nomadicwriter: teenage Victor Von Doom looking annoyed (young Victor Von Doom)
From: [personal profile] nomadicwriter
There's more info about it here; it looks like it's set at least mostly during the college years:

"Victor Von Doom" #1 picks up a thread from "Books of Doom" which explained that Doom's enrollment in New York's Empire State University came about because the U.S. government wanted to further the brilliant young scientist's studies in the hope that he would create advanced technology for them. "This story meshes up with 'Books of Doom' for the most part," Spencer said. "Doom's sequestered education on the part of the U.S. government is certainly a key part of the story. That's really where we begin our story. That will play a big role in where we're headed. As far as the connection to the other stories in 'Books of Doom,' this is a bit of an 'arms length' continuity. You can take it or not. It's sort of your choice. Nothing in it, though, contradicts 'Books of Doom.'"

They say it's the story of Doom's 'first' attempt to rescue his mother's soul, so I'm kind of wondering if it's actually going to be retelling the story we all know, or maybe another failed attempt he made before the accident.

I'm not happy about the Magneto series. I think Carey has done some really good stuff with him and I'm really sick of Marvel making interesting decisions and then quickly going back on them. The constant retcons and backpedaling is annoying.

Likewise, I heard Scottie Young is writing it. I love him as an artist, but I'm unsure as a writer.

nomadicwriter: Doctor Doom and Wanda Maximoff (Doom/Wanda)
From: [personal profile] nomadicwriter
Yeah; I want to be interested in this, but it seems less like it's going to be an actual exploration of Magneto's character and more like the result of Marvel passing him back and forth between writers who disagree over how irredeemably evil he is.
