Doctor Doom: The Book Of Doom Omnibus
About this deal
In the intervening years since FF #6, Sub-Mariner had won and lost his own series, despite some very radical and attention-grabbing stunts. At the close, surface dwellers dumped nerve-gas into the sea, accidently but catastrophically altering Namor’s hybrid body, forcing him to wear a hydrating-suit to breathe. The same toxin had plunged the entire nation of Atlantis into a perpetual coma… Returned to mortal life, he appears here next as Emperor Doom (1987): an all-original graphic novel conceived by Mark Gruenwald, Michelinie and Shooter, scripted by Michelinie and illustrated by Bob Hall with additional inking by Keith Williams. Finally, the connections he has with magic and the mystical create a unique dichotomy in Doom. The basic need of a child wanting to have a mother and be comforted by them drives him to learn more and struggle every year to save her. Who can't empathize with that?

The premise was that all-powerful force The Beyonder abducted many Earth heroes and villains – and Galactus – in a quest to understand the emotion of desire. The enigmatic, almighty entity dumped the abducted on a purpose-built Battleworld created from and populated with fragments of other planets as a vast arena in which to prove which was better: “self-gratification or sacrifice”…Giant-Sized Super-Villain Team-Up #1 detailed how Doom and Namor grudgingly reunited, in a framing sequence by Thomas, John Buscema & Sinnott interlaced with reprints of previous meetings. Collects Dark Reign: Fantastic Four #1-5, Fantastic Four (1998) #570-578, and material from Dark Reign: The Cabal One-Shot. Truly a unique villain that Doom…but he’s still a giant armored douche for what he did to the poor Silver Surfer. Where’s My Money, Honey? Luke Cage, Hero For Hire #9 (1973) By Steve Englehart and George Tuska

So it’s with mixed emotion that Doom realises Wonder Man and a select band of newly liberated Avengers are coming for him, determined to free the world or die… Later, appearances showcase his cunningness and the fact that he's a ruler of a country. His ego is always present (and usually his downfall) but there's also his honor. For years it was just assumed that he ruled his country with an iron fist and the people were miserable, but once it was revealed (in a couple different stories) that he was actually successful and ruled a prosperous and happy country, yet another dimension is added to this complex villain.Collects Thor: God of Thunder (2012) #1-25, Thor (2014) #1-8, Thor Annual (2015) #1, Thors (2015) #1-4, and Mighty Thor (2015) #1-12.
