Greetings True Believers!

Here are a couple scans from the latest issue of this Avengers mini.

I'm conflicted about it.

But DOOM! is always enjoyable.


I do love this cover.

I add a thought bubble in my version, "Yes, DOOM hits this on a regular basis."

Anyway. The Avengers and the X-Men have "Shut up! No, you shut up!" super-fight and Wanda puts the whammy on them all and transports herself and the Young Avengers to a place of safety...

But it isn't! Turns out in a TWIST! that Wanda's Psycho-outing was partially caused by Victor. Wanda came to him after her children "died" and he helped her control the "Life Force" and it didn't work out. One House of M later Doom's scouts found Wanda and brought her to him.

Wanda wants to restore the mutant race and then be rid of this extra power. Victor promises to help her do so.

Wiccan, Wanda and Doom begin their mojo but Patriot interferes and disrupts the ceremony. Big boom and Wanda gasps that all that extra power is gone. Where did it go??

Oh, we're doing Secret Wars now? Ok, just so we're clear.

nomadicwriter: Close-up of Doctor Doom's eye showing a tear welling up (Doom crying)

That was actually Jack Kirby's personal take; Stan Lee's original stories all say that Doom was very badly disfigured, and the reaction shots to Doom unmasking in that era seem to confirm it. But Kirby's idea spread around and a couple of other writers picked it up, so that muddied the issue; John Byrne wrote a version that kind of blended the two by saying Doom only had a quite small scar initially but burned his face more severely when he put the Doom mask on while it was still hot.

I rambled a bit about the various different takes here when I did a roundup of all the different tellings of Doctor Doom's origin. Really, it's a bit of a "pick your own favourite interpretation" issue.

Ah. My bad--I knew one of them had that idea, but I wasn't sure who and I guessed.
