IN EXTINCTION

DOCTOR DOOM MAKES VICTORIOUS THE HERALD OF DOOM TO LURE GALACTUS

Previously, in Fantastic Four (2018) #1, we learn the origin story of Victorious.

Courageously, Zora Lukovic inspired Doctor Doom to end his self-exile and reclaim Latveria.

To recompense, Doctor Doom imbued her with the Power Cosmic. Then, Victorious was born.

In reality, Doom’s plan was to lure Galactus to Earth.

In Fantastic Four (2019) #6, Galactus heads straight to Latveria to consume Earth.

During the invasion, Doom’s massive hologram warns Earth of Galactus’ arrival.

Then, he warns that only Doom would deal with the threat. When the FF intercept the broadcast, they head for Latveria.

In Fantastic Four #7, the Fantastic Four help Doom defeat Galactus. Previously, Doom sent Victorious to deal with the FF.

During the battle, Victorious defeats the Human Torch. However, at Doomstadt Doctor Doom proves no match for Galactus.

Then, he re-directs the Devourer of Worlds to Mount Doom. There, his hunger is drawn to Victorious’ Power Cosmic.

As the hungry Galactus feeds on her energies Doom fires his Big Bang Cannons.

After, Torch goes supernova and Mister Fantastic tricks him, the FF defeat Galactus.

And using the Big Bang Cannons, the monarch alters the cosmic being’s molecular structure.

Then, he phases Galactus into Mount Doom. In a hacked televised broadcast, Doom announces his victory.

Gloriously, he promises a new age of clean energy for the world powered by the Devourer.

Finally, he captures the FF and sentences them to death for violating his nation’s sovereignty.

SUPER-SKRULL MAY APPEAR IN THE NEW FF MOVIE

In 2019, fans of CAPTAIN MARVEL [Blu-ray], got a glimpse for the possible direction of the new Fantastic Four movie. In short, the movie is about Kree super-spy Carol Danvers. As she struggles to regain her memories, Carol is caught in a war between the Kree and the shape-shifting Skrulls. Eventually, she becomes Captain Marvel, a galactic superhero. At ScreenRant, Chris Voyage speculates that Super-Skrull would be the perfect villain for the FF’s MCU debut.

In addition, clues have been planted in Spider-Man: Far From Home, about the upcoming Disney+ show Secret Invasion. In fact, it is based on the eponymous comic where Earth is invaded by Skrull spies. Dangerously, the spies use their shape-shifting powers to impersonate Earth’s heroes. For their part, let’s look at the first war between Super-Skrull and the Fantastic Four.

AFTER A PREVIOUS FAILED INVASION, THE EMPEROR SENDS SUPER-SKRULL TO INVADE EARTH

In the fifth quadrant of the Andromeda galaxy, on Tarnax IV, the Skrull Emperor plans to invade Earth. Previously, the Fantastic Four thwarted the Skrull invasion. This time, they are sending the Super-Skrull named Kl’rt. With the powers of the FF, Kl’rt is even stronger than the team combined.

A week later, the Fantastic Four respond to reports of an alien sighting at Times Square. There, Super-Skrull appears and plants the Skrull flag on the ground. Thereby, Kl’rt claims Earth as a Skrull colony. When a mob attacks him, Super-Skrull bats them aside. Soon, the FF battle Super-Skrull but are no match. In the end, the Fantastic Four are forced to flee.

IN A FINAL BATTLE, THE FF IMPRISON SUPER-SKRULL IN A VOLCANO

In the final battle, the Fantastic Four goad Super-Skrull on an abandoned island named Crater Isle. Previously, Reed deduced the source of Kl’rt’s powers. Indeed, he derives his amazing super powers from a homing beacon to the Skrull Throneworld. Quickly, Mister Fantastic constructed a jamming device.

During the battle, the Fantastic Four distract Super-Skrull. Meanwhile, Invisible Girl plants the jamming device. Amazingly, the device deprives Kl’rt access to his super powers. Now powerless, Super-Skrull is knocked into a volcano. To finish him, Human Torch seals the sand over the opening with his flame.

Super Power Explained: When Fed And When Hungry, How Tough Is Galactus?

In Fantastic Four (1966) #50, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with the Ultimate Nullifier.

GALACTUS POSSESSES THE POWER COSMIC

With his eye-beams, Galactus removes Silver Surfer’s space-born powers, stranding him to Earth. Marvel Comics.

In the Marvel Universe, no being was more feared than Galactus. Recently, he met his timely end at the hands of Thor, in Devourer King. When King Thor became Galactus’ Herald, he was imbued with the Power Cosmic. Namely, Galactus possesses this reservoir of ambient, cosmic energy at an incalculable level. In fact, Galactus’ possession of the Power Cosmic makes him a cosmic entity on par with Eternity, the embodiment of the Marvel Universe. There are other reservoirs of power as well such as the Power Primordial which powers the Elders of the Universe.

Incredibly, Galactus possesses the Power Cosmic at a Universal Level with the potential to create or destroy the Marvel Universe. Definitely, such power is god-like and explains why the Devourer of Worlds eats planets. If the Star-God’s catalogue of super powers is endless, let’s examine his durability.

In other words, how tough is Galactus, when fed and when hungry?

GALACTUS’ POWER LEVEL

In Fantastic Four (1966) #50, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with the Ultimate Nullifier.
In Fantastic Four (1966) #50, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with the Ultimate Nullifier. Marvel Comics.

In The Galactus Trilogy, Earth-616 is threatened by Galactus for the first time. Somberly, Silver Surfer arrives to announce the end of the world. When Galactus comes to Earth, he clashes with the Fantastic Four. Meanwhile, Silver Surfer meets Alicia Masters. Fortunately, she convinces Norrin to turn against his master. Together, the FF and Silver Surfer are aided by Uatu the Watcher in their battle. When Human Torch retrieves the Ultimate Nullifier from Taa II at Watcher’s directions, the tide changes. In possession of the Ultimate Nullifier, Mister Fantastic threatens Galactus with annihilation unless he leaves.

Since the UN is an artifact on Galactus’ solar system-sized home, it gives an estimation of his power level. Importantly, the Nullifier can lay waste to a galaxy, and destroy a universe. As a result, Galactus relented his invasion. In terms of durability, this means Galactus is at least Galaxy-Level in Durability and Power Level. However, that is not enough to determine his fed and hungry states.

WHEN HUNGRY

In Thanos (2004) #6, Thanos crashes Rigel-3 and Rigel-18 onto Galactus and Hunger. Marvel Comics.

In Thanos: Redemption (Thanos (2003-2004)), Galactus is manipulated by the cosmic entity named the Hunger. In an attempt to rid himself of his cosmic hunger, Galactus accidentally summons the Hunger into the Earth-616 reality.

Though Thanos finds out about Hunger’s machinations, he fails in stopping Galactus. After the Hunger enters this reality, Thanos brings in the big guns! Powerfully, the mad Titan teleports old Rigel-3 into Rigel-18’s orbit. On a collision course, both planets slam onto each other in a cosmic conflagration. In between, Galactus and Hunger are caught in the collision. Incredibly, Galactus survives.

Previously, Hunger had severely weakened Galactus who was in a hungry state. If we estimate Galactus’ durability feat, we can make a comparison. In fact, if we collide two planets the size of Earth at orbital velocity, the work done is at least Stellar-Level in Energy Projection. Indeed, a hungry Galactus is at least Stellar-Level in Durability.

DURABILITY FEAT: STELLAR

Durability: Stellar 58%

In The Last Galactus Story: Chapter Seven (1985), Galactus investigates the disappearance of stars in the universe. Interestingly, he traces it to the Milky Way galaxy. Then, a sated Galactus enters the core of the galaxy. Powerfully, Galactus survives the gravitational force at the core of the Milky Way galaxy without any trouble. Definitely, a feat requiring a Galaxy to Universal-Level durability.

In the issue, it is stated that Galactus survived the previous universe’s destruction. If Galactus can survive the forces of entropy, that puts his potential durability as Universal-Level.

DURABILITY FEAT: UNIVERSAL

Durability: Universal 83%

THE THING’S ROCK-LIKE SKIN CAN WITHSTAND IMMENSE PRESSURES

.In 'Fantastic Four' (1981) #235, The Thing carries a bomb from the surface of Ego the living planet to its brain, enduring immense heat and pressure.
In Fantastic Four (1981) #235, The Thing carries a bomb from the surface of Ego the living planet to its brain, enduring immense heat and pressure. Marvel Comics.

During the Silver Age, the Fantastic Four first appeared. In Fantastic Four (1961) #1, we learn of the superhero team’s origin story. During the Cold War, a team of astronauts are involved in the Space Race. In order to beat the Communists, Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm sneak aboard a rocket. Previously, Ben had warned the team about the need to shield against cosmic rays. Unfortunately, the rocket is bombarded by cosmic rays in space.

In the issue, they acquire super powers and become… the Fantastic Four. Notably, scientist Reed Richards develops the ability to stretch his skin. For her part, Invisible Girl is able to generate force fields and turn invisible. Johnny Storm becomes the Human Torch. And Ben Grimm develops a tough rock-like skin that grants him super strength.

In fact, The Thing’s rock-like skin is highly durable and can withstand injury, impact, pressures and extreme heat. In Fantastic Four (1981) #235, The Thing carries a bomb from the surface of Ego the living planet to its brain, enduring immense heat and pressure. Moreover, Thing is most known for his tremendous super strength.

Let’s list five feats that show Thing may have Planetary-Level of Super Strength.

WHY THING CAN BUST A PLANET

5. STOPPING AN ALIEN CRAFT FROM TAKING OFF FROM EARTH

In 4 (2004) #7, Ben uses his great strength to prevent an alien ship from taking off.
In 4 (2004) #7, Ben uses his great strength to prevent an alien ship from taking off. Marvel Comics.

Critically, the Fantastic Four are the premiere Marvel superhero team. At CBR.com, Evan Hopkins lists At The Four-Front: 15 Fantastic Four Teams Way Better Than The Original. In some sense, what makes them work is their blend of advanced science and adventure.

In 4 (2004) #7, the FF showcase why they have the perfect team-work. To begin, Mister Fantastic and a team of filmmakers are aboard an alien ship. When the aliens prepare for departure, Mister Fantastic begins to predict his team’s next moves.

In fact, he knows Ben will use his great strength to prevent the ship from taking off. However, he also knows the limits of Thing’s super power. In fact, Ben will fail. Next, the second teammate is Sue Storm who will help Ben succeed. Indeed, Reed’s predictions turn out correct.

And considering the amount of thrust for the alien ship to take-off, Thing’s feat is potentially Planetary-Level. According to NASA, rockets require a thrust of 5.3 million pounds to reach escape velocity. Since this is an alien ship, the energy demands are likely higher.

4. GOING TOE TO TOE WITH NAMOR

 In Uncanny X-Men (2012) #2, Namor and Thing brawled. Marvel Comics.

Really, Thing deserves more respect in the Marvel Universe. In Uncanny X-Men (2012) #2, Namor and Thing brawled. To this end, the Avengers and X-Men were in search of Hope Summers at Tabula Rasa. Accidentally, the two teams bumped onto each other on the island. After dispatching Luke Cage, King Namor went toe to toe with Thing.

Really, Thing has faced quality opponents. In the past, Namor has fought Hercules who has fought Hulk who has fought… Thing. Indeed, get the idea? And considering the competition, we are talking about at least Planetary-Level.

At CBR.com, Brian Cronin lists the rules of the competition in A Cosmic Being Slowly Realizes That He’ll Never Truly Defeat the Thing. As a result, multiple heroes are disqualified. Only Sasquatch, Colossus, Wonder Man and Thing represent Earth.

Among them, only Thing manages to make a stand. In fact, he lasts against Champion till the third round. During the match, Thing breaks Champion’s ribs. At the end, Champion is victorious in the third round. However, impressed by Thing’s spirit, he decides not to destroy Earth.

And considering Champion once destroyed a planet by jumping several feet in the air and stomping it. Definitely, a feat of Planetary-Level Super Strength.

2. THING TRANSPORTED A BOMB ALONG EGO THE LIVING PLANET TO ITS BRAIN

Perhaps, one of Thing’s most popular feat. In fact, both a feat of super strength and durability. In Fantastic Four (1981) #235, The Thing carries a bomb from the surface of Ego the living planet to its brain. So doing, Thing endures immense heat and pressure.

And considering Ego is a cosmic being who has tangled with Galactus and Silver Surfer. Since Thing had to climb the planet’s anatomy, this is definitely a Planetary-Level feat.

1. THING WITHSTOOD, PUSHED BACK AND CRUSHED THE HYDRAULO-PRESS.

 In 'Fantastic Four' (1969) #92, Ben withstood, pushed back and crushed the Hydraulo-Press.

Definitely, Thing’s number one feat. In Fantastic Four (1969) #92, the Skrulls used the Hydraulo-Press against Thing. Powerfully, the weapon could bench press a planet. Dangerously, the Skrulls pressed the weapon down on Thing. Incredibly, Ben withstood, pushed back and crushed it.

And considering the force involved, Thing had to bench press a planet. Definitely, a feat requiring more than 5.972 × 1024 kg, the mass of the Earth.

Among Marvel superheroes, Black Bolt is a powerhouse. As Inhuman King, the silent monarch hosts a plethora of super powers: super strength, super speed, superhuman durability, a powerful sonic scream, matter and energy manipulation, particle and electron harnessing and manipulation.

On his brow, Black Bolt has a metallic fork-shaped antenna. In order to channel his particle and electron super powers, Black Bolt focuses them with his antenna. Let’s look at how Black Bolt’s chief super powers extend to the Galaxy Level.

SONIC SCREAM

In ‘Fantastic Four’ (1993) #375, Doctor Doom has stolen Aron the rogue Watcher’s powers. Given that Uatu the Watcher’s power can shake a galaxy, Aron is comparably Galaxy Level. In order to stop Doctor Doom, the Fantastic Four and the Inhumans have teamed up. Ingeniously, Mister Fantastic has invented the Optimizer.

In short, it is a machine that absorbs Doctor Doom’s cosmic energy from his storage battery and fires it back at him. In this instance, Black Bolt speaks his sonic scream into the Optimizer and fires it at Doctor Doom. As a result, Doctor Doom’s storage battery is overloaded till he reaches critical mass. In the end, Doom vanishes in an explosion.

Definitely, Black Bolt demonstrated a Galaxy Level of Energy Projection since he was able to overload Doctor Doom’s storage battery.

PARTICLE AND ELECTRON MANIPULATION

In ‘Marvel Two-In-One Annual’ (1979) #4, Black Bolt performs an incredible feat. During a battle against Graviton, Black Bolt has to stop a solar flare from striking the Earth. Incredibly, Black Bolt uses his electron manipulation powers to stop the solar flare.

Considering a solar flare produces 1032 ergs per second or 1025 Watts of power, Black Bolt demonstrated a Stellar Level of Energy Projection.

SUPER STRENGTH

During an all-out war, Black Bolt attacks Gladiator and briefly overpowers him. In the meantime, White Noise has to put an end to the fight.

Considering Gladiator has Stellar Level Super Strength, Black Bolt demonstrated a Stellar Level of Super Strength.

VS GALACTUS

In 'Doctor Strange' (2018) #16, Black Bolt amped by magic staggers Galactus with a powerful scream.

Really, a feat that has been talked about on the Internet. In Doctor Strange (2018) #16, Galactus returns to the Marvel Universe. Previously, Galactus sated his hunger in another dimension. Now, he has returned to conquer the Marvel Universe.

In order to stop the Devourer of Worlds, Doctor Strange assembles a coalition of mages and cosmic heroes. Together, they battle the Star God. Though, their efforts are futile. Indeed, Galactus will not be conquered.

Alone, Black Bolt steps forward. Moreover, amped by magic, he delivers a powerful sonic scream. Incredibly, the sonic scream staggers Galactus. At a time when Galactus did not have his jobber aura, he was still a cosmic force.

In The Last Galactus Story: Chapter Seven (1985), a sated Galactus once survived the gravitational force at the core of the Milky Way galaxy. Definitely, considering the incredible durability, Black Bolt performed a Galaxy-Level of Energy Projection.

Definitely, Black Bolt is as powerful as a herald of Galactus. Let’s list the Top 4 heralds in terms of energy manipulation.

In ‘Incredible Hulk’ (1980) #250, Silver Surfer is stranded on Earth and seeks the help of Bruce Banner. In order to break through Galactus’s space barrier, Bruce Banner constructs machinery to bombard the Silver Surfer with gamma rays. Soon, the gamma-powered Silver Surfer goes into space to break the barrier.

After a gamma ray explosion, Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk. Returning from space for more power, Surfer ends up fighting the Green Behemoth. On Silver Surfer’s surfboard, they end in space. There, Surfer has the idea of absorbing Hulk‘s gamma ray radiation. Afterwards, Hulk reverts to Bruce Banner.

Eventually, Surfer breaks the space barrier. However, the Sentinel of the Spaceways has to return to Earth to save Bruce in free fall, who fell off Surfer’s surfboard. Finally, Surfer has to return Bruce’s gamma power to save him, transforminging him into the Hulk. In the end, the Silver Surfer is again trapped on Earth.

In “The 10 Most Powerful Heralds of Galactus, Ranked”, Chris White at CBR.com ranks Stardust number three. Namely, Stardust was the last surviving member of his race known as the Etherals. In fact, these were beings of pure energy. Named Lambda-Zero, she became Stardust, a ruthless and murderous herald of Galactus.

In ‘Stormbreaker: The Saga of Beta-Ray Bill’ (2005) #4, Stardust and Beta-Ray Bill engage in a cosmic clash over Galactus’ attempt to feed on New Korbin. In order to assist in her struggle, Stardust summons Asteroth. When the demon causes untold damage, both fighters agree to battle field remove it.

Uncannily, one of Stardust’s super powers with the Power Cosmic is to open portals to black holes. In order to BFR Asteroth, Stardust opens a portal to a black hole. Though, the ploy fails and both Stardust and Beta-Ray Bill begin to be sucked in.

In the end, they are saved by Alpha Ray who drives the evil spirit into the black hole.

3. NOVA, ‘SILVER SURFER’ (1987) #9

In ‘Silver Surfer’ (1987) #9, Nova and Silver Surfer have to save Galactus from the Elders of the Universe. In a grand scheme, they have built a device powered by the Soul Gems to destroy Galactus. Mischievously, they have kidnapped Shalla Bal and Mantis in order to lure the Silver Surfer. In exchange for the women’s freedoms, Surfer hands over the Soul Gem.

However, the Grandmaster sends the women in a ball of energy that will explode if touched. Unfortunately, Norrin manages to save only Shalla Bal. Angrily, the Surfer vows to make them pay and departs to save Galactus. Meanwhile, the Elders of the Universe have activated their machine which is slowly killing the Devourer of Worlds.

Under Surfer’s direction, Nova triggers a star to collapse into a black hole. Miraculously, Galactus can recover by feeding on the energies. Meanwhile, some of the Elders and the Soul Gems are sucked into the black hole.

Definitely, a feat requiring a high end energy manipulation. On a scale, it requires the power output of a galaxy within seconds. Without a doubt, a Galaxy Level of Energy Projection.

STAN LEE’S FAVORITE VILLAIN

Doctor Doom was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Originally, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 (1962) #5.

Interviewed by leukemia survivor KJ Ricci, Stan Lee revealed Doctor Doom is his favorite supervillain. The legendary writer said he does not see Doom as a villain and would like to clear his name.

PER IGN: MARVEL’S GREATEST VILLAIN

IGN’S TOP 100 COMIC BOOK VILLAINS OF ALL TIME

In 2009, IGN counted down the Top 100 Comic Book Villains Of All Time from both DC and Marvel comics. The list features some of the best villains in the two universes such as Magneto, Thanos, Black Adam and Joker. The list even ranks our own Doctor Doom.

On the list, Doctor Doom ranked number three. In 2019, IGN would rank Doctor Doom as the greatest Marvel villain of all time citing his supreme arrogance and lust for power. Let’s look at reasons why this is the case.

 

Doctor Doom.

ORIGIN STORY

Doctor Doom’s origin story is one of tragedy and crime. Victor von Doom was born to gypsy parents. His mother dealt in the dark arts. Tragically, a bargain with Mephisto went awry and the demon claimed Victor’s mother’s soul. Victor studied magic in Latveria then science in America to reclaim his mother’s soul.

Victor Von Doom, Reed Richards and Ben Grimm studied at State University, New York. Apparently, Ben may have been responsible for Victor becoming Doctor Doom. Combining magic and science, Victor’s experiment failed and his face was scarred. Donning armor and mask, he became… Doctor Doom.

CHARACTER MOTIVATION

What makes Doom a great villain is the fact that he originally was not a villain. His dedication to saving his mother is understandable though the means he uses are abhorrent. In many respects, Doom is a product of his upbringing: tortured, lonely and violent.

Doom’s central motivation is his belief that the world can find peace only under Doomworld. In many respects, this is the belief of all tyrants which shows that Doom’s belief actually stems from those tragic circumstances that developed his lust for power. Why is Doom’s Marvel greatest villain? He has conviction and unmatched willpower.

VILLAIN OR ANTI-HERO?

Early stories showcase Doctor Doom as an exclusive Fantastic Four villain. IGN even considers him a fifth member of the Fantastic Four as its necessary antagonist. What makes Doom an interesting villain are his motivations. Ultimately, though he always seeks ultimate power as his goal, his purposes are always devious.

Of course, his final goal is world domination but his methods are infinite. As head of state of Latveria, Doom uses the vast resources at his disposal to do war against the Fantastic Four and Marvel Earth. In some portrayals Doctor Doom has allied himself with the forces of good to face a common enemy. In “Infinity Gauntlet,” Doctor Doom even allied himself to the heroes who banded together to fight Thanos. However, it is always for a devious purpose.

POWERS: SCIENCE AND MAGIC

Doctor Doom is one of the most brilliant minds on Marvel Earth, rivaling Mister Fantastic in scientific expertise. A rarity, Doom has managed to unite both science and magic, upgrading his armor with spells, cosmic energy and other sources of power. What makes Doom so dangerous is his skill in both departments and his viciousness, since he is willing to go to any lengths in order to further his power.

Multiple times, Doctor Doom has succeeded in achieving ultimate power. Doctor Doom managed to steal the Beyonder’s power and become the Supreme Being of the Marvel Universe. In the “Avengers: Emperor Doom” storyline, Doom became the benevolent Emperor Doom who succeeded in bringing peace on Earth with the Purple Man’s psycho-prism. In the “Secret Wars” event, Doom stole the Beyonders’ power again, this time, to re-make reality in his image. Indeed, a feat not even Thanos has achieved.

STAN LEE’S FAVORITE VILLAIN

Doctor Doom was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Originally, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 (1962) #5.

Interviewed by leukemia survivor KJ Ricci, Stan Lee revealed Doctor Doom is his favorite supervillain. The legendary writer said he does not see Doom as a villain and would like to clear his name.

RESPECT DOCTOR DOOM!

DESTINED TO RULE THE WORLD

In “Doomwar”, Doctor Doom manages to steal the Vibranium from T’Challa’s Vibranium Vault. Before he can claim what his heart truly seeks, Doctor Doom must pass a test. He must prove to the god Bast that he is truly pure of heart. Uncannily, Doctor Doom does pass the test.

Doctor Doom opens his soul and shows Bast he has faith. With his sorcery, he has peered into millions of possible futures and has seen that the only future where humanity is at peace, is Doomworld. Perhaps, Doctor Doom is pure evil.

 

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #3, Doctor Doom tells Bast he has gazed into a hundred thousand futures, and the only one where humanity survives is with Doctor Doom as its ruler.

SORCERER SUPREME CONTENDER

Few beings on Marvel Earth are equally adept at science and magic. Using sorcery and tech, Doctor Doom lives in both world. A super-genius, Doctor Doom once contended for the title of Sorcerer Supreme against Doctor Strange.

In ‘Doctor Strange & Doctor Doom: Triumph & Torment’, Genghis tests the most powerful sorcerers on Earth for the title of Sorcerer Supreme. In the trial, it comes down to a final showdown between Doom and Strange. Ultimately, Doctor Doom fails the trial and only for Doctor Strange to use his astral form free Genghis’ spirit from his crystal and to be declared Sorcerer Supreme.

SUPREME BEING OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, Doctor Doom stole Galactus’ and Taa II’s power in order to battle Beyonder. In the Beyonder’s Realm, it was a hopeless battle. Finally, Doctor Doom was defeated.

Miraculously, in a contest of willlpower, Doom resisted the Beyonder’s dissection, overpowered him, and stole his power. For a short while, Doctor Doom became the Supreme Being of the Marvel Universe.

IN ADVANCED WARFARE

BLACK PANTHER, SHURI AND THE DORA MILAJE ARE FUGITIVES FROM THE DESTURI COUP IN WAKANDA

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #1, T’Challa and Shuri, the Black Panther, has lost his royal title and is a fugitive from Wakanda. The Desturi have seized Wakanda’s government and have sentenced the Queen, Storm of the X-Men, to death. T’Challa has fled Wakanda to seek help from the mutant nation of Utopia.

In Utopia, T’Challa arrives with Shuri and the Dora Milaje to explain the circumstances of recent events. In the past year, T’Challa had been tracking rumors of a dissident group called the Desturi. They are a fundamentalist and xenophobic group that had infiltrated all levels of government.

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #1, T'Challa briefs the X-Men on the Desturi coup d'etat in Wakanda and Doctor Doom its mastermind.

T’Challa found they had access to surveillance but had no leads. Until he was lured into a trap by the mastermind of the coup d’etat, Doctor Doom, who nearly killed him. Later, T’Challa found Doom had infiltrated the palace food and water supplies with nanites swarms. Fearing that everyone he cared for could have been turned into living spy cameras, T’Challa fled Wakanda with Shuri and the Dora Milaje.

White Queen questions about Doctor Doom’s purpose of the revolution. T’Challa responds that its purpose is to obtain the Vibranium supply of Wakanda to upgrade his armor and become the most powerful force on Earth. Cyclops as Head of Utopia, cannot sanction an open war with Wakanda. However, some X-Men willingly volunteer.

DURING T’CHALLA’S AND THE X-MEN’S ATTACK ON WAKANDA, DOCTOR DOOM STEALS ALL OF WAKANDA’S VIBRANIUM

 

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #2, T’Challa and his army attack Wakanda. Wakanda is the most advanced nation on Earth. T’Challa’s army arrive on Wakandan soil and are greeted by the army and the head of the Desturi. Asking the Desturi government to surrender, T’Challa and his army declare themselves to be Wakanda. Suddenly, Nightcrawler teleports T’Challa and Black Panther into the Palace. Despite Nightcrawler’s opposition, Black Panther massacres the people in the Palace.

At the Wakandan border, the X-Men and the Dora Milaje take on the Wakandan army. Back at the Palace, Doctor Doom has given Storm a 10 minute ultimatum to lock-pick the Vibranium Vault otherwise, he will shoot the members of the Royal Family. Nightcrawler attempts to teleport T’Challa to the Vibranium Vault with no success since Doctor Doom has placed a mystical barrier. T’Challa needs the Dora Milaje to hold the Wakandan army for one hour so he can massacre the hundreds of guards at the Royal Palace in order to reach the Vibranium Vault.

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #2, Queen Ororo attempts to lock-pick the Vibranium Vault as Doctor Doom holds T'Challa's mother at gunpoint.

T’Challa arrives at the Vibranium Vault and finds Queen Ororo bound in fetters by Doctor Doom. Doctor Doom gives T’Challa five seconds to give him the key to the final lock or else he will kill Storm. He has to choose between saving the Vibranium and saving Storm. T’Challa does not hesitate and decides to protect the Vibranium.

The countdown ends and Doctor Doom relishing the game, does not kill Ororo. Doom teleports in a flash of lightning. Entering the Vault, T’Challa finds out that all of the Vibranium is gone. Checkmate!

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #4, T'Challa enters the Vibranium vault and finds out all the Vibranium is gone.

DOCTOR DOOM IS A MEGALOMANIAC WHOSE UNIQUE VISION OF THE FUTURE FOR WORLD PEACE IS DOOMWORLD

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #3, Doctor Doom wages his “Doomwar” using Vibranium. In order to unlock the final lock, Doctor Doom had to face Bast, God of Egypt and Panther God of Wakanda. Bast scrutinizes Doctor Doom’s spi; and asks him his motivations for taking Vibranium. The test is purity and if Doctor Doom lies, Bast will devour him.

Doctor Doom tells Bast that though his methods are cruel and villainous, he has purity of intention. Doctor Doom claims mankind is a predator species and that according to his purity, he is a saint. He has gazed into thousand futures, a hundred thousand futures and found that the only future where humanity survives extinction and is at peace is under Doctor Doom‘s rule on Doomworld. Bast, though he finds Doctor Doom’s methods abhorrent, passes Doctor Doom and let’s him have the Vibranium.

THE DOOMWAR BEGINS WITH CASUALTIES ON ALL SIDES

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #4, the “Doomwar” over Vibranium begins on a global scale. T’Challa has recruited the Fantastic Four to assist him. Using Vibranium trackers, T’Challa has tracked locations of Vibranium supply at Doombases over the world. Shuri, the Dora Milaje, Invisible Woman, Thing, Human Torch and the X-Men are on the frontlines. When they arrive at the first Doombase, they are unable to destroy the Vibranium-enhanced Doombots. Then, arming themselves with Vibranium-enhanced armors and weapons, T’Challa’s army begins to take down Doombots.

However, there are enormous casualties on both sides. In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #5, T’Challa and his army suffer great casualties with one third of the Dora Milaje having fallen. However, they have managed to take down only eight percent of the Doombases. T’Challa recognizes that Doom has learnt everything about Vibranium technology and his people is facing extinction. In order to eliminate the threat, he turns to shadow physics. T’Challa invented the discipline to unite quantum science with alchemy. T’Challa’s plan is to send Deadpool and the Midnight Angels to Latveria in order to assassinate Doctor Doom.

Later, Shuri’s team has located one of Doom’s computers. Hacking into the system, they divert all his funding to humanitarian causes.

The Broker who has been running the Doomwar, realizes this and fears Doom will kill him.

IN SYMKARIA, T’CHALLA FINALLY OUTSMARTS DOOM WITH SHADOW PHYSICS BY USING A TRIGGER THAT RENDERS ALL PROCESSED VIBRANIUM INERT

In ‘Doomwar’ (2010) #6, T’Challa finally outsmarts Doctor Doom by rendering all processed Vibranium inert. In a communication with Black Panther, T’Challa informs her that he has sanction a shadow attack of Latveria by the Midnight Angels which cannot be traced. She does not approve T’Challa bypassing her authority and reminds him that Wakanda does not start wars. Doctor Doom’s armor upgrade is finally online and he is able to sense and to tap all the Vibranium which is present everywhere on Earth.

T’Challa is in communication with other scientific and mystical leaders on Earth: Beast, Hank Pym, Tony Stark, Charles Xavier, Doctor Strange and Doctor Voodoo. They inform T’Challa that all Vibranium objects on Earth have come to life. Since the act leads back to Wakanda, and the threat of a nuclear war looms, they refuse to help T’Challa. Deadpool and the Midnight Angels attack in Latveria but they are no match for Doom. In diplomatic mission to Symkaria, Shuri invites Doctor Doom to come face T’Challa’s army to settle the matter.

The final battle begins. T’Challa’s army is overwhelmed by Doom’s army. During the battle, T’Challa is seemingly defeated by Victor. However, T’Challa finally outsmarts Doctor Doom. He activates a trigger that uses shadow physics to render all the processed Vibranium on Earth inert.

Shuri who had wanted to kill Doom, relents. She promises that she will hunt over the Earth and kill him if he steps foot on Wakandan soil. In the end, Black Panther and Storm watch as the superhero community helps them re-build Wakanda.
