Give him a break. All he ever wanted to be is an avenger.
Doom is actually considered Valeria's Godfather. He named her and put her under protection of the nation of Latveria.
Now you are picturing a kid that tried to bully her having to answer to a doombot, because harming Valeria is an actual act of war against the nation of Latveria.
>Valeria has to actually talk Doom out of having the bully carted off and tried in Latveria
>Even does full on defiance
>NO ONE DEFIES DOOM
>Except for Doom's Goddaughter, he's even impressed when she doesn't backdown
>Not to mention the whole school
>Friends are made that day
>Doom leans back on his throne watching this, smiling.
>"All is as Doom has planned."
I wanna read a book where this is the premise of the entire story.
Young girl has the biggest, baddest super-villain on the planet for as a guardian/mentor/benefactor and she's the only one who isn't afraid of him or him.
So he ends up doing a lot of actual heroic stuff because he loves her too much to disappoint her.
Imagine the feels.
Is this going to be a "Everything bad is Reed Richards's fault?"
Doom would never stoop so low as to harm children.
Or use them as pawns to strike at his enemies, for instance, by placing a spell on Valeria to send the Fantastic Four to hell.
No, not Doom!!
The froth contained a potion to enable him to switch bodies with Franklin.
Anyone know any other Ares-like characters?
YES YOU DAMN WELL DO NEED TO READ THE INCREDIBLE HERCULES
The humor gets considerably more overt after the first arc, though.
When someone says to Richard "How can you kill them, they look like children" and he answers "I know, it's hard to kill just one!"
^ but I couldn't find that image so here's this.
Ryan Sohmer also does that other webcomic about comic books, which as far as I know is just sniping at more succesful people. Mark Waid wrote an amazing guest strip though.
>bad guy wearing green joins good guys and changes to white
I've seen that shit somewhere before...
OP's pic is not even from FF, it's from the latest New Avengers.
As for your question, he doesn't even appear much in the current FF run. Current FF is just cheap drama and overused plots and exposition and a huge disappointment
>Mark Waid gets to be bitter and can pass it off as humor
>Gets to take shots at DC
He might as well take over that comic.
I love Doom's and Valeria's relationship. It adds so much more depth to the FF/Doom dynamic.
It's even awesome when you see adult Valeria being always defensive of Victor despite what everyone else thinks.
Before Valeria, Reed was the smartest person. Sure, he's a dick, a gigantic dick even, but unlike Valeria he's never trying to teach everyone else how to live with a holier-than-thou im-always-right attitude.
>S-shut up Doom
Reed counts as a villain by now, right?
Where did I say women can't do it? Women can.
E.g. Emma Frost is a huge jerk, but in a good and entertaining way. She's not like Doom, of course – but I can imagine a woman being a Doom-like royal jerk.
The multiverse is collapsing and Reed is stalling its demise by blowing up alternate earths. He left Val in Doom's hands because that's the safest place she could possibly be at the moment.
A world-destroying bomb can be used to blow up a world with no inhabitants (if the heroes find a way to evacuate them). Or just as a bargaining chip in diplomatic talks.
It's like nukes, governments use nukes as a way to make their position stronger diplomatically, not to actually blow up Earth several times over.
They hoped the other guys would have a solution. They didn't. Blowing up the world was the only other recourse.
There was never any bargain to be made, they had a bomb that would destroy a world. In fact, they had dozens.
could you imagein Doom with a green lantern ring?
>that file name
Yeah, he's the only white lantern atm.
Long story short Guy Gardner came in and beat the shit out of Atrocitus...took his ring. So he and Dex are out looking for a ring to take so he doesn't die and instead find the Butcher....which works for a while until Kyle takes it (he was possessed by every entity except Parallax at the time....who is mia for reasons I don't know)
That would be an interesting end to their red lanter appearances. They both end up on a lost planet somewhere and spend too much time just the two of them relaxing and Dex just getting petted. Both rings suddenly fly off because they cant stay angry and are too mellow.
Weed Planet, appropriate ending.
And a dyson sphere to power a giant laser. And a deal with dark priests bent on world dominance. And an entire fucking planet phased into the same space as Earth from the future in order to power more weapons.
Ah, there we go....yellow lanterns have been absent from the current green and red runs for a while (they're all I keep up with) so I didn't know....haven't read the recent Sinestro comic. Adara had just said that Parallax was lost to them because he was held by the strongest will in the universe or something.
The way red lanterns is going now either Atrocitus or Guy is going to end up getting their ass killed....the reds are divided into two factions atm and most of the ones with established history (besides Dex) are dead or on Guy's side......so either one side falls or some crazy shit happens and wipes this from the table (which would be the lamest copout ever after all the buildup).
Kind of, but not really. He became the Replicant so he could be a Rogue like them...the downside was that he was stuck like that forever and couldn't turn human again. But otherwise he did pretty okay for himself and was a fairly formidable villain.
>Trickster doing the ol' quarter behind the ear trick
>Digger showing him how to throw a boomerang
This is why the Rogues are so great. They're so fleshed out and three dimensional
I believe he does find him.
As well as
the people who threw him off a bridge
Someone once posted a picture with all the Lantern Corps fighting the Black Lanterns.
Everyone has their weapons. Kilowog with a hammer, etc. Basically, everyone has summoned up their most fearsome or powerful or capable weaponry. And Dex-tar summons up a knife. A simple and crude construct, but then Red Lanterns aren't generally construct-makers.
But he summons up a knife. Why, you ask?
Because to him, the knife is the most terrifying weapon he can think of. It is the most fearsome and evil weapon he could wield.
a knife takes away what you love
you have 10 seconds to post something or someone cuter than Chat
They're explicitly building world destroying bombs to destroy world-shaped bombs that would destroy the entire universe if not blown up first. I'm having a hard time agreeing that saving an absurdly large number of people (in both universes) is bad just because they weren't able to save all of them. Letting everyone die because they're too much of a pussy is not the moral high ground.
Namor was right.
Doom's always been a shades of grey area. I hear Lex Luthor has gone good guy too. About time.
When they first met, things were different.
Letting a universe end isn't really evil. It's not like people would die in agony. The universes would just both disappear from existence. Nobody would even be mad because they wouldn't exist anymore.
