Did you read Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange: Triumph and Torment, the Marvel OGN that saw Doctor Doom's late mother, Cynthia Von Doom, have her soul purified and rise to a higher plane away from Mephisto and hell? Well, Brian Bendis seems not to. Or he read a subsequent story I didn't. Or he doesn't care. or has something planned. or I got it wrong.
Today's Infamous Iron Man #3 sees Cynthia in some hellish plane or other again, while the Thing is bopping on Doctor Doom's noggin.
Doctor Doom is explaining why he's not a bad guy and remembers what went down in the Secret Wars. Including how he got his nose back.
Cue some really nice double page spreads by Alex Maleev revisiting the Warworld and Doom's place in it.
And how he is all better now and wants to be the opposite of what he was.
Which is all fine and dandy. But over in Moon Girl And Devil's Dinosaur. Where the Thing has also been getting down and dirty, after his trip into space.
Note, this established that both Infamous Iron Man and Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur are happening in the same period. So how is Doom acting now? All penitent, and wanting to make the world a better place?
Hey, didn't the Thing just say Doom's face was fixed? Maybe continuity could be given a once over as well.
But if you aren't liking the new, improved, Iron Von Doom, and want the old guy back… take a trip down to Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur…
Infamous Iron Man #3 by Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev and Devil Dinosaur #14 by Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclare and Ray Anthony Height are published by Marvel Comics today.
