Dr. Doom Asks for a Limited Series and Told to Go To Hell

Is it a good or a bad thing that Doom is going to Hell?

Dr. Doom is an arrogant jerk. And that's putting it lightly. He's been a thorn in the side of the Fantastic Four pretty much from the beginning and has been such an ass over the years. But he's still a pretty cool villain.

We don't often see villains getting the spotlight in their own series or limited series but because Doom is so deserving (at least in his opinion), this November he will be getting a four issue series.

Nick Spencer will handle the writing while Becky Cloonan will do the art. The series is simply called Victor Von Doom. By the look of this image, his face is clearly scar-free. Does that mean this is a flashback story? He does appear younger. We know he was obsessed with Hell due to his mom's soul being stuck there.

Normally a flashback series on a character I already know just about everything about wouldn't sound too appealing but with Nick Spencer on board and Cloonan's art, I am pretty curious. This is also the same month when Fantastic Four #600 is out. Coincidence or will it be a FF-themed month?

...I normally am not a fan of the mortal charecter finding himself in a story based out of hell...kinda boring. We will see I guess.

Dooms been to Hell and walked out fine, notably in the miniseries Triumph And Torment.
He doesn't seem to mind the place.

The doors of hell are revolving in the Marvel universe...

I thought he had been in hell before. And he got out by chasing Thor's hammer.

Wolverine went to hell last year, and that was awesome. More Hell is fine with me.

Doom 2099 was awesome. This should do nicely on my wall.

This reminds me of What If? #22 (original series) - loved that story, and will be interested to see what comes of this one.  Doom was obsessed with freeing his mother's soul from hell - could he also be interested in visiting some payback on anyone or anything that dared to torment his mother's soul?  And what would his mother's soul be like, after all that torment? 
And lest we forget, in the original Secret Wars, Doom briefly wrested power from the Beyonder.  What would he do if he could harness the power of a netherworld?

I was vaguely interested until you said Nick Spencer. 
Then I was really interested!

I wonder if Scarlet Witch is the one who sends him to Hell :P

Posted by pspin

This looks pretty cool, villains deserve more attention, especially the classic ones 

I thought his face was all scarred though, i wonder if it is about that kid he pick to succeed him, wasnt his name victor also?

Now this sounds awesome. Awesome villain and awesome creative team = a must read.

Posted by A-Strondinaire

I read the title and said damn straight till i find out he's actually going to hell are they making this like an annual for every comic? ( ¬_¬) 
Next month Ms. Marvel will go and resolve the Marcus issue while dealing with her love for every male avenger she oggled not to mention a stubborn chili dog. Stayed tuned for next month when Ghostriders faces a irate Mephisto for sending to many damned souls his way before being able to make shifty deals!

Posted by maxicere

I love Doom. I want this!!

Posted by ThanosIsMad

If he doesn't get a suit of armor made out of flesh again, there's no point in him going back to Hell.
And Marvel needs to stop being asshats and give him his Marquis powers back and make him into the Marvel threat he needs to be.

This actually looks interesting. I am always down for Doom'centric stories, if anything Marvel needs more of them. But since Red Skull is or has gotten his mini out its only right to do the same to Marvel other greatest villain. Maybe after Doom we'll get some awesome Kang stuff... hell I'd be happy with just the retelling of how Kang wiped out the Council of Kangs, there isn't much better when Kang is destroying his alternate reality/timeline selves.

Doom has already gone to hell twice, what will make this time different

Posted by RalfvdH

... Is that supposed to be Victor??
He looks like an Emo Gothic kid... Isn't he supposed to be older?

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Very interested in this.

Posted by Icemizer

Oh what he goes there again? Yawwwwwnnnnnnnn. Something new please.
Posted by Samimista

Mmm he's very cute on that cover...I'll be reading this as I love Doctor Doom.

Sounds cool

Posted by Silkcuts

I don't think I've seen both these two creators team up before, but Spencer has impressed me with Morning Glories and Becky is a Vertigo alumni so I only have love for her.

Awesome! Do it Babs, and take a picture and post it!

Whenever Dooms goes to Hell, it's usually never a good thing.

Posted by ImperiousRix

Wasn't Wolverine just in Hell?  Is this going to be some kind of standby whenever Marvel needs a limited series?
