Todd & Joe Have Issues 03/02/17 Doctor Strange, Doctor Doom: Triumph and Torment
We talk about Doctor Doom quite a bit on the show and here on the site. He is arguably Todd’s favorite character and I’m starting to warm up to him as well. I do not have the same history with his as others as my first real, lenghty exposure to Doom was the Mark Waid run from the early 00’s. The thing that appeals to me about the good Doctor is he really works in any situation as a viable threat or protagonist.
Where am I going with this? Well, in the fallout of Secret War, Victor became the new Iron Man, not to be confused with Riri Williams, who is also the new Iron Man…er…Ironheart, trying to become a good guy. In his ongoing title, Infamous Iron Man, the antagonist (so far) has been his own mother, long to be deceased. How long? Since shortly after his birth, but this is not the first time she has appeared in the pages of Marvel comics.
Back in 1989, Doom teamed up with fellow mystic, Doctor Strange to travel to (Marvel’s version) of Hell to battle Mephisto for possession of his mother’s very soul. How does it turn out? Only one way to find out! Read along with us as we get ready to discuss on next week’s show!
