Superhero team-ups are meant to be fun, but when one of the biggest supervillains around shows up in front of you, demands an alliance, and then tells you that oh, by the way, he’s totally given up being a villain to take the place of Iron Man? Well, those team-ups are fraught with danger... or should be, at least.
Last week, we heard Hugh Jackman lament that he’d probably keep playing Wolverine if he could show up in an Avengers movie. Well, turns out he’s not the only actor who’s been in a Marvel Comics movie that wants in on the success of Marvel Studios—Fantastic Four’s own villain has joined the line.
Dr. Doom is really, honestly, a beautiful creation and I would have forgiven every single awful F4nt4stic Four movie if they’d gotten him right. That said, Stan Lee would like to stick for Victor von Doom’s right to want to rule the world.
Tony Stark’s future in the Marvel Universe has been thrown into doubt ever since the start of Civil War II—and made even more doubtful when we learned that he would be replaced as Iron Man by not one, but two different characters. One of those Iron Men debuted today in Infamous Iron Man, giving us a major hint about…
Doctor Doom is one of the two new people taking on the role of Iron Man in this Fall’s “Marvel Now!” lineup, and to do so, he’s getting his own suit of Iron Man armor. In true Doom style, it’s been remade in his own image—and it’s a pretty awesome mash-up of Doctor Doom and Iron Man’s designs that really, really works.
As if one surprising new character becoming Iron Man wasn’t enough for a single week, Marvel Comics has got another one for you. A new comic called Infamous Iron Man will feature Victor Von Doom in Tony Stark’s red and yellow armor.
Squirrel Girl is famous for one thing: Squirrels. Okay, two things: squirrels and absolutely wrecking Doctor Doom in her very first appearance. Doreen Green has been tussling with Doom once more in the latest arc of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl which culminated this week with a timey-wimey throwback to that 24-year-old…
Frank Castle was cruising through New York City looking for criminals to kill, as he does. Hey, look, it’s the Supreme Monarch of Latveria! Time for some punishment! Or is it?
Greetings, my fantastic friends! (finger guns) Don’t worry, not all the questions in this week’s mailbag are about a certain fantastic flop, although there are a few; I guess that’s what I get for not doing a FAQ. But I also try to solve one of Star Wars’s weirdest, nerdiest mysteries—why the hell is C-3PO programmed…
DOOM CARES NOT FOR CHRISTMAS. Well, I guess that's a lie, thanks to this incredible cosplay by Cash Branson - Santa Doom is coming to town, and he's got one hell of a naughty list.
Toby Kebbell recently revealed what the new backstory is for Doctor Doom in the Fantastic Four reboot. And it's so bad, guys. It's really, really bad. Spoilers beyond this point.
You'd think a Doctor Doom figure wouldn't be hard to get wrong - armour, mask, slap a cape on, done - but it's still remarkable when a Toy company manages to get Latveria's finest not just right, but pretty much perfect like 3A have.
Being a scientist is hard work, but being a mad scientist is even harder. There are so many additional dangers, and you can rarely even recognize them, because, you know, you’re mad and all. I highly recommend all mad scientists tape these 11 “don’ts” on their fridge or hunchbacked assistant, whichever they see most.
When it comes to supervillain class, nobody beats the Fantastic Four's arch-nemesis Doctor Doom. But despite his impervious metal suit and weapons-grade haughtiness, Doom has been knocked down a peg more times than he'd like to admit. Here are 10 of the Latverian dictator-for-life's most embarrassing moments — they…
At the New York Comic Con, io9 spoke with author Brian Wood (DMZ, Northlanders) and illustrator Becky Cloonan (Demo, American Virgin) about their new Conan The Barbarian series for Dark Horse Comics. The animated duo told io9 about their various upcoming projects (and elaborated on the creative hurdles one encounters…
With a name like the Fantastic Four, you'd think the superteam would have a fairly static membership. But no, Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, and the Thing frequently go on sabbatical and/or die, thus requiring awesomely ridiculous replacements.
In 1977, famed make-up rockers KISS teamed up with Marvel Comics to produce KISS, the only comic book in history to feature Paul Stanley psychoanalyzing Dr. Doom. Also, the comic was printed using the band's blood. Literacy, ahoy!
We watch their so-called "fiendish" schemes being defeated on a regular basis, but have you ever stopped to wonder whether life would be better if the bad guy won? Here're some villains we're rooting for... and why we're doing so.
Looking to get a jump on the history books? Science fiction already has a complete list of the men, women, and murderous aliens who occupy the White House in this bright new 21st century.
The recession may have meant that you couldn't buy that life-size Battlestar Galactica Raptor prop, but that doesn't mean that there aren't cheaper ways to nerd out. Especially with a week of comics like this.
