"What is your power, Corruptor?"

"Oh, I'm basically a crappy Purple Man."

I always confuse him with the Controller, who needs special discs to take over peoples' minds... and the Ringmaster, who has a hypnotic hat/eyes/enhanced brain... and the Mandrill, who only controls women through pheromones...and the Puppet Master, who needs dolls made from radioactive clay...

Why are there so many crappy mind control villains?
(Not that they're all -crappy-, some are interesting depending on the situation...)

Except that he's not.

Corrupter's powers is what his name implies. He can influence behavior to a certain degree, but he can't control it.

He can make, say, Thor into a rampaging douchbag, but he can't make him kill Hogun or Sif or betray Asgard.

Honestly, he is logically the last person you would want to touch Doom, because he'd make Doom even worse. He'd have no reason to expect to survive, really.

But this is Bendis, so he just wants to pigeon hole characters into his limited skill set, so...

I am thinking this is their way of returning Doom to villainy.

First Grim tells him he'll never be good enough, then the girl rejects him then all the villains come in and then he gets a dose of corruptor venom, which lowers inhibitions.

It is a pity, I've been enjoying the current round of villains slotting in for heroes. I wish it could have lasted longer and we could have seen a few team ups. And I think this is still a bit weak for Doom. Guy looked the amplified Purple Man in the face and told him No.

Exactly what I was thinking!
