"In my opinion, Medusa and Black Bolt are one of the fundamental couples of the Marvel Universe—but they’re unique too. They aren’t Spider-Man and MJ, or Reed Richards and Sue Storm—they’re royal." - Charles Soule

It always falls out this way for God Doom.

Even that time he tried Lockjaw as the Baron.

Interesting aspect of 'God' Dooms powers there, and that might be one of the best demonstrations I can remember of how horrible Black Bolts powers can be.

Also, can Medusa get her powers altered to let her keep her hair short until she needs it? She looks freaking awesome in that last page.

The last few pages reveal that both Black Bolt and Medusa will ALWAYS come together and try and take the fight to him, so God Doom resets reality so that instead of Black Bolt being the rebel leader, Medusa is. We're seeing a version of Medusa pre-Terrigen, like how Black Bolt throughout the series has been pre-Terrigen, and therefore without powers. A nice little "love will always find a way" story, even if it does end... with... one of them... killing... the other... accidentally :I

Which just raises more questions

Like if the Voice Unheard was actually making underground connections to other domains, sending supplies and help to people across Battleworld, why don't those people notice when Black Bolt is suddenly Baron and Medusa is the leader of the insurgents? Same goes for the various Barons and Thors

The main title shows that Doom is more than willing to mindwipe people as needed.

Okay but if Doom is so omnipotent and all powerful that he can mindwipe/brainwash everyone on Battleworld who's ever visited the Manhattan domain or the Quiet Room, let alone even heard of Baroness Medusa, Black Bolt, or the Voice Unheard, then why couldn't he find Star Lord who was working there recently?

Why? Hand-wavium at work!

Perhaps because Star Lord isn't really one of Doom's subjects he can't be "seen" by Doom as well as others.

I'd say it's more global brainwashing. 'If you ever meet Black Bolt the Bartender, remember this woman instead.'

While I agree, definitely, I don't think she'd need to get her powers altered; I'm fairly sure she can expand or compress her hair as needed, as well as altering the density of any of its strands. I suspect that she simply wears it long out of personal preference as well as because it's her image.

That is a gorgeous picture.

That is one gut punch of an ending, though the time reset/loop thing feels a bit like gilding the lily. In any case it's still more interesting than the meaningless cookie cutter "The heroes are all definitely getting geared up to go after God Doom now!" endings of so many of the other tie-ins.

"Sixty-seventh iteration and God Doom still can't find a way to float the Inhumans title past the seventh issue..."
