    Oh dear me, I hope you survived that. LOL....I know a lot of people have a sentimental attachment to their intro to a series but personally I am not a fan of the Million Year Old Doom that Millar hatched. I suppose the fellow who finished off the arc when Millar took his leave is partially to blame too...Joe Ahearne IIRC.

    We had started to talk about creating a sticky somehow in the beginning of the thread and maybe that's something moderator Joe Acro can look into. The poster Doomscribe had a good list posted a month or two ago.

    First of all, I am going to say I am definitely going to buy the mini series "Victor Von Doom" coming out this November. And if you have not been picking up Hickman's FF I would try and see if you can get some back issues. The preview's for next week's issue look pretty awesome. You can always get up to speed by asking around here on the MB.

    Maybe what we can do is start a list again and then the next contributor just copies it and then adds their picks to the bottom. I will start off with a few. I am leading off with Books of Doom because I think Brubaker does an excellent job of retelling the Lee/Kirby origin from FF annual #2. He does toss out a few things and expands in some areas but essentially sticks to the main elements.

    Super-Villain Team Up is another good choice. In addition to his first solo story in Marvel Super Heroes #20, it collects Doom's two solo series, SVTU and Astonishing Tales along with some of the crossover issues from the Avengers and the Champions. Yeah, you might find some of the Silver Age stuff kind of goofy but I think you will find some surprisingly well done character work in there too, particularly in Astonishing Tales #8, a tale that Roger Stern would later use as his inspiration for his graphic novel, Doctor Strange/Doctor Doom: Triumph and Torment.

    Now I will let someone else take a turn at it...

    The Essential Doctor Victor von Doom

    Occurred off-panel ... JLA/Avengers #3, page1; Doom doesn't actually appear, otherwise.


    And then there is This(Spoiler for the latest issue of Avengers Children's Crusade #7):


    Iron Maiden has it right, shades of Secret War (the original). Loved the visual of the mask hitting the ground on the previous page, though.

    The Essential Doctor Victor von Doom

    Books of Doom
    The Essential Super-Villain Team-Up (reprinted works in black and white)
    Doctor Strange/Doctor Doom: Triumph and Torment.
    Doom
    Heroes Reborn: The Return
    Doctor Doom and the Masters of Evil
    Emperor Doom


    Excellent choices. I'm left recommending these:

    Nekkid Lion Fighting. 'Nuff said!



    Doom is cast down to a counter earth, but that doesn't slow him down at all. Actually, I think this comes before Nekkid Lion Fighting.




    What if Doom conquered the world? A surprising answer.



    Marvel All Ages Doom, but nicely done and fun!

    That AWESOME list of important Dr. Doom appearances by Doomscribe should definitely be edited into the first post, as well as a basic list of Doom trades.

But one Avenger must decide whether to take the power away from him, and risk returning the world to one of strife and conflict. Stars the Avengers. *******

    Triumph and Torment (Graphic Novel) 1989 Roger Stern/Mike Mignola/Mark Badger. Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange battle Mephisto in order to free the soul of Doom’s mother from his infernal realm. Includes a synopsis origin story for each of the good doctors. ********

    Amazing Spider-Man 349 July, 1991 “Man Of Steal!”
    Amazing Spider-Man 350 Aug, 1991 “Doom Service!” Remarkable appearance for Doom’s ultimate restraint, and also for quite thoroughly kicking Peter’s butt. ****

    Doom 2099 1 – 40 January 1993 Sometimes brilliant, ended too soon. Issues after #40 are best left unread. ******

    Heroes Reborn: DOOM one shot, January 2000 “Doom!” ******

    Books of Doom 1 – 6 (Limited Series); November 2005. An expanded re-telling of the rise of Victor Von Doom, and the conquest of Latveria. Great new insights, fabulous art, very well done and highly recommended. *******

    Stan Lee Meets Doctor Doom – one shot December 2006. ***

    Iron Man: Legacy of Doom 1 – 4 (Limited Series) April 2008; Iron Man and Doctor Doom tangle again over fragments of Excalibur, magic and science do battle. ****

    Doctor Doom & the Masters of Evil 1 – 4 (Limited Series) January 2009 **** A fun mini series aimed at all ages.

    Fall of Hulks: Alpha one shot, Feb-10 “Meeting of the Minds” The Intelligentsia gather knowledge from the world, Doom keeps it. Fall of Hulks was difficult to follow unless you got all of the Hulk titles, but this one-shot was a particularly nice showing for Doom. **

    Spider-Man & the Secret Wars 1 – 4 (Limited Series) January 2010 Another all-ages title, recaps Secret Wars from Spider-Mans POV, with Dr Doom; again providing a new take on a classic story. ****

    DoomWar 1 -6 (Limited Series) April 2010. Doom attacks Wakanda to steal the Vibranium. Although some notable character flaws and the end is anti-climatic given the build-up, there were some moments of absolute delicious Doom-ness. Plus, he may (or may not) have been brain damaged (after Fall of Hulks) while all this was going on.

    Avengers The Children's Crusade (Limited series) November 2010. Starting in issue #2, Doom appears in issues 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8, but sometimes only briefly. The art in this series is positively stunning, although the story plods a little and there are a lot of characters to keep track of. Not a Dr Doom story per se, but he is engaged to marry an amnesiac but quite lovely Scarlet Witch.

    FF 1 -4 May 2011. Dr Doom is invited by Valeria Richards to join the Future Foundation, to the chagrin of the old guard. His mental faculties are restored, and then he plots with the rest of the invitees on how to destroy the evil Reed Richards and save the world.

    *-*-*-*-
    The following notable Fantastic Four arcs are purposefully left off this list for unforgiveable transgressions against the Master, but there were some elements in each that were laudable. Reader, draw your own conclusions.Fantastic Four (vol 3) 67 – 71/500 May, 2003. “Under Her Skin” and “Unthinkable” parts 1 – 4.
    Fantastic Four 566 to 569, July 2009 “Doom’s Master” and “Million Year Old Doom”

    I remember that too! But I really don't know what the Wall is and why people end up getting stuck there. And why Dom ended up being almost Celestial-sized.

    Good job on that list, Doomscribe! I should create an Access database out of it!

    BTW, did anyone else get the premiere hard cover edition that came out last week "The Overthrow of Doom"? I picked this up online at Tales of Wonder and I love seeing these old comic that were printed newsprint style on premium paper. There's a couple of covers in there as bonus material where they recolored them and took away the usual trade dress stuff. I'd scan them but I don't want to mess up the binding.

    IIIRC this is the last cover Jack Kirby would do for the Fantastic Four.

    LOL....nice finds, mausi12.

    I think I like this group the best. The whole Loki/Doom relationship sure had an interesting spin at first when JMS was using Fem-Loki. I still think the reason why Morgana Le Fey got all crazy on Doom was that she thought something was going on between the two of them and she got insanely jealous.

    So I've been reading the early Super Hero Squad comics on Marvel Digital (still workin' on that epic list of links to Doctor Doom comics) which are mostly more dumbed down and less charming than the show. Still, I've got to admit this made my day:

    Ugh. I never thought Marvel would allow Doom to be portrayed bare-chested, even on SHS, until I saw the preview pages of Children's Crusade with a shirtless young Victor.

    I think you're right she was really jealous of loki
    I think he really likes loki
    He knew that loki is in man
    pity that odin was dead at the time he has not seen lady loki



    Doom/Loki: «….The way he calmly snarks back at Loki, knowing Loki will betray him and yet being fine with it all the same, preparing for it with patient, calm acceptance. It’s great. It’s just great. I think Doom is like a cat owner who knows the cat is not his pet and will wander where he pleases, but at the end of the week is always going to come back for milk and treats.» (c) avali

    That's based on a similar scene from Books of Doom. What's so weird about Doom being bare-chested? He's been naked before in his lion-fighting days. It's showing the damage to his face that's the mystique that shouldn't be broken; I don't see why there's anything wrong with artists showing the rest of him out of armour occasionally. Especially in a goofy out-of-continuity one-panel joke.
