These dialogues are worth of a Pulitzer prize.
Yes, that’s Spid… Peter Parker there.
Look, I know Doom is not actually naked but I feel scandalized anyway.
No. No. Ah hell no.
Did you honestly think modern comics had better writing than the oldies I normally show you?
One of the Best comic book covers of Doc Doom out there I mean
Just look at how happy he is.
You’re mistaken, minion. This isn’t a what-if scenario. This is how Doom ALWAYS is!
Reed Richards didn’t like my previous post.
Psh. What’s that little pyscho going to do anyway
Reed Richards is actually a good guy, people. Remember that. M-my post was only joking!!
Hello, fellow supporter of Latveria’s greatest ruler!
I have read your reply to my post “Doom’s files: spot the mad scientist!” and I appreciate the time you took to write it.
If you look around my blog, you will see that my description of every Marvel character is….. less than flattering, really. My blog playfully makes fun of how terrible some comic panels are. Super-Skrull is my favorite character and I think he is extremely cool, but if you were to read my post about him, you wouldn’t get that idea. That’s because for the style of my blog, I mock superheroes… but in good heart, since I actually love them!
So I have intentionally picked some of the worst comic panels about Reed Richards just like I always choose the worst panels about Doom or about other guest characters.Specifically to laugh at how wrong those panels are.
Admittedly, I do personally like the idea that Reed deep down might suffer the same complexes that Doom has, as it’s been hinted in a few occasions. But that’s because characters in superhero comics change a great deal depending on who is the writer, so if I wanted I could even claim that the Hulk is not dumb but is a very intelligent green monster, and I could find comics to prove that too.
Thank you for your comment, and I hope you still got a few laughs out of my post about Mister Fantastic. :)
I’ve made guest posts about two of my favorite Marvel villains: Super-Skrull and Thanos.
And now, as I mentioned the other day… it is time for “Doom’s files” to talk about someone who is not a villain (maybe).
A very important post, because it’s about the most important figure in Doom’s life, even more important than his beloved mother. You know who it is:
Reed Richards is a genius scientist, so much of a genius in fact, that he is the only one whose smarts can match those of Victor Von Doom.
People may passingly see this guy and think he’s an eccentric, quirky scientist, the good counterpart to the evil doctor Doom.
Well, you may not believe I am not saying this as a biased Latveria’s chronicler, but…. think again, buddy. The fact he calls himself Mr. Fantastic, while he refers to his best friend as the Thing, should give you a little tip that intelligence isn’t the only characteristic he and Doom have in common….
GAH!! At least Doom has the decency to wear a mask when he makes these faces!!
And Doom had the decency to not have children. The poor kiddo.
There is however one thing in which Reed Richards definitely surpasses Victor Von Doom.
(Important: you must play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnHmskwqCCQ while reading this for the full effect.)
(You may now proceed to stop the Yakety Sax theme from playing…. or not.)
Blablablah… gosh Reed, you speak with walls of text.
So here’s the thing about Reed Richards, aka “Mister Fantastic”….
….Reed Richards is just the same kind of person Doom is, but he is seen as a hero wherein Doom is seen as a monster.
Doom looks at Reed like in a mirror, and sees what he should have been: a man with friends, a wife, a kid, a Nobel prize and the admiration of the world, and no need to hide his face.
Reed looks at Doom like in a mirror, and sees all the megalomania, the egotism, the hunger for self-recognition, the disdain for those of inferior intelligence… that he feels too.
Is it any wonder they hate but need each other?
