Cursing someone who is close to Franklin Richards with eternal youth seems kinda redundant given certain theories about how Marveltime works.

To be fair, this wasn't a intentional cursing from the looks of it. Molly was just really, REALLY careless with that immortality cupcake.

I mean that isn't the kind of thing you just leave laying around Molly. Even creepy immortal girl had it squirreled away. And even so Molly probably had no idea it would de age the person who ate it. The implication was that it just froze you at the age you were when you ate it.

Well, as someone who never cared for Molly, I'm glad someone brought it up.

I don't mind Molly as a character, but MarvelTime means it's hard to make kids grow up, which means she stays a kid, which means the "charm" of a child character eventually wears off.

You have to love how Doom programmed his robotic dopplegangers to share not only his snark, but his undying contempt for Reed Richards.

Wish I could remember the name of the Dwyane McDuffie one shot where it was so overt that I spent the whole issue waiting for them to kiss

I think so. It's the one where he kidnapps Reed's family so they can have dinner alone* and you find out they've been playing chess by mail for years.

*Or something. It's been a while.

Edit: Just reread it on Unlimited. I had a lot of the details wrong but that is the same comic. Their dinner is even more of a date than I remember though.

Also Doom almost immediately offers to show Reed the dungeons and that's pretty "Fifty Shades of Grey" in hindsight

Oh my, I need to read this (as soon as Marvel accepts at least one of my credit cards, argh).
*insert an awful pun about the dungeons being the second base [of operations] for any respected villain here*
Ahem. Thanks for the rec!

I look forward to your reaction and hope I didn't oversell it.

I mean there's a lot of fans (many of them here) that probably read too much into the subtext of interactions between characters. Generally I find it a bit of a stretch. This story seems like it was written for that kind of fan.

Also it's surprisingly sweet for a Doom story.

I'm usually content with the text, and I loved Doom and Richard's interaction here %)

I think it's funny that there's two heroic (or at least, non-evil) Doombots running around, between this one and the one from Gwenpool. Plus Doom himself is less evil these days.

I wonder if there was a Doombot patch that Victor put out when he decided to be slightly less evil.

Julie's attitude towards the team when they don't have any real follow up after Doombot leaves is a mite puzzling to me, given that she's been a part of a super-team family that operated in pretty much the same way far longer than she was ever part of an Avengers-adjacent team.

To be fair to Julie, the majority of the Runaways are adults, two of them have been Avengers, they should know better than the Power Pack who were literal children.

Not unreasonable, though neither Avengers A.I. or A-Force were especially formal teams either.

Granted, too, the Runaways are awfully laissez faire about the whole thing, even by relaxed standards. "So, a Doombot showed up." "Yup. Wanna go get ice cream?"

I think the moral of this story is clear; don't steal other people's cupcakes.

Food tampering with the timelines.

It is. The team is ready to fight until Victor tells them it's his old friend and teammate.

I still want to see a story where a Doombot and a Nick Fury LMD break their programming and start hanging out together.

The preview for the issue said Julie was facing a fate worse than death. IT WAS NOT KIDDING.

If only because there is a danger of a de-ageing sticking for a while anyway, unlike Marvel-death which isn't even a timeout anymore. She could have picked up some frequent die-ers miles.

Honestly, more than that, from the perspective of someone that's gone through a few more decades, with all its ups and downs, being turned back into a 13 year old? Yeah, that's the stuff of nightmares.
