First Look: Doctor Doom Vs. Dark Avengers

Dark Avengers Vs Doctor Doom.  We've seen Doom and Osborn work together in the first issues of Dark Avengers.  It's obvious that dudes like Norman Osborn and Doctor Doom could never stay allies.  Their egos are such that they could never see each other as equals or allow one to be in a position of higher power.  
 
According to Marvel, things between the two will be heating up as Brian Bendis, Michael Lark and David Finch bring us round two.  We know that Dark Reign will be coming to an end soon, could this be part of the Norman and the Dark Avengers' downfall?
 


Besides being a simply awesome piece of art by David Finch, take a look at Loki.  Looks like he'll be switching genders once again.  That has to be a drag (no pun intended).  Imagine he's just getting used to being a woman.  He would've had to buy a completely new wardrobe.  Now that's useless.  Maybe after this fight he'll have a yard sale in Asgard or something.  It is nice to see Taskmaster getting in on things as well.  What do you think of this picture?

Finch is awesome

Looks like he's shooting the Hood who is shooting Osborn.  Is this an inside war of the Dark Illuminati.  We now know Frost and Namor's stance.

I noticed that same as you did. Loki switching genders. I wonder what's the story behind that. Other then that, always good to see the old doctor go about his business.

I'll admit I'm behind on Thor.  I haven't read since 600.  I should probably dig them out of my stacks of comics and read them.  I'd imagine the gender change will occur there.  Unless (and I really doubt it) Finch just messed up and no one caught it.  I don't think he'd mess up like that and I'm sure someone besides us would notice that.

I've not been keeping up with Thor myself, other than the occasional browsing through his comic. But I find it hard to believe that Finch would mess up like that. I guess we'll have to keep a look out on other covers/pictures with Loki in it.

I love that picture, but I saw Taskie in there and immediately THIS came to mind...
 
"One of these things is not like the other"...
 
However, hopefully he'll straight-up slaughter everyone but Doom, and we'll all be better for it. But then again, I'm not writing the book, so I doubt that's going to happen...

Loki switched back to being a man in Thor a month or 2 ago.
Also Finch dose make mistakes in new Avengers when Spiedy got his arm broke that was ment to be Thunder ball from the wrecking crew not Jigsaw and when I got his autograph I asked him why he putTaskmaster in his old suit he said that he did not eavin know that Taskmaster had a new suit now I know that theas were not as high profile as Loki but they are mistakes nunthe less.

Was Taskmaster the 7th mystery member of the Cabal that Osborn referred to that was strong enough to take out the other Cabal members if they got out of line?

He did? But he's still being portrayed as a woman in Dark Avengers etc. right?... I really need to start reading Thor again to make sense of it all :p

Loki took his old body back when they mowed to Latveria.
 
As for the comic, it's a cool pic, I might just pick up Dark avengers again to see this.

Wow, if these crazy kids can't make it work, what's the hope for the rest of us and are megalomaniac, ego cabals bend on world domination?
 
It's a cool picture. Looks like Loki got bored with having breasts.

#25 Posted by Kashimu (22 posts) - - Show Bio

I just hope it keeps it's word. A lot of New Avengers/ Dark Avengers comics haven't really been true to their covers or descriptions.

Yeah acctually..... 
About the whole thing with Loki... that actually is happening ahead of a lot of things.... Mighty Avengers still show's Loki as a woman.... and in Utopia showed him as a he... So I guess some things are happening before than others...
 
Great Pic... Finch has a thing about detail.... and I love that!

Where do you see ares? It looks more like taskmaster to me, but then again I have no idea why he would be there anyway.

so does this mean Dr.Doom broke norman's agreement...looks like every one is betraying him Emma,namor,Doom,loki,maybe the hood...kick it to the man guys. norman is an as

#38 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

totally. Doom has been planning this since Secret Invasion Dark Reign #1, with Namor in on it.
of course he planned on betraying Namor as well, seen more recently when he resurrected
and improved Attuma in Made Men to take Namor out, and Namor has of course already disbanded 
as of Utopia.Good to see its following through.

#41 Posted by bingbangboom (746 posts) - - Show Bio

I like Loki more as a she just because it is interesting. There are so many villains out there and this is just a cool twist and knowing it pisses him off is even better. I hope that it goes back to She-Loki, heck I think having a comic about Loki as a woman would be interesting rather than just Loki as the old guy. Another option is two Lokis? Maybe someone else assumes the mantle of "Loki" which forces She-Loki out of Asguard period possibly making her the new Scarlett Witch for a while.

#42 Edited by Watch Dog (834 posts) - - Show Bio
@bingbangboom: Loki is not a mantel to handed over or taken. He is a god and in Norse mythology he changed shape all the time in to what ever he wanted to. He was the mother of Odin's 8 legged  horse.

#44 Posted by The WeatherMan (3214 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait to see Norman crumble. They are both villains, but I definitely like Doom better as a ruler and the main badass villain. Can't wait for Squirrel Girl to overthrow him after :)

Great that Taskmaster is shown, seeing as he is in charge of the Initiative and all.  Why is Hood there, though?

Finch draws the Iron Patriot almost completley diffrently than how he drew Iron Man in the New Avengers.
