My Response to Millar's use of Doctor Doom.
Greetings True Believers! I have a problem with the "Masters of Doom" storyline. The problem is that Victor Von Doom does not have a master(s), Doom IS the master. Pride has always defined Doctor Doom (and led to his defeat at times) so the thought of Doom willingly and eagerly bending knee to any being flies in the face of the character Marvel has been building since 1962.
I realize that Millar might be planning for Doom to betray his "master" and may have always been planning that. That is the ONLY way to salvage this storyline.
Below the cut is one page from the 1987 Marvel graphic novel, "Emperor Doom" and this one page explains why Doom would never kneel to any being and it's a powerful display of the awesome.
The story is that Doctor Doom has used the powers of the Purple Man (enhanced by Doom's technology) to take over the world. Mr. Kilgrave obivously has an issue with this situation. He claims that Doom has no true power and doesn't deserve to rule. Doom's response is this....
That's why "Masters of Doom" is fatally flawed.
