Critically, Doomwar, is the most important Doctor Doom story Post-Civil War. After an orchestrated Coup d’Etat, Black Panther goes into hiding. Dangerously, Doctor Doom threatens Wakanda and its most precious treasure.

Together, writer Jonathan Maberry and artist Scot Eaton collaborate on the story. Though among the darkest Marvel stories, the writing highlights the complexity of monarchical rule. Nevertheless, the art in the book is characteristic of Black Panther comics: muscular, complex and brutal.

Moreover, Black Panther vs Doctor Doom.

Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of Doctor Doom, at comic clubs and Comic-Cons. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Doctor Doom! And Black Panther!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


To begin, this comic is one of the most important Doctor Doom stories. Many events after Black Panther: The Bride, Doctor Doom decides to invade Wakanda. Dangerously, Doom presents as a formidable threat, personal, political and planetary, to Black Panther and Wakanda.

Importantly, after a political coup, Black Panther must choose between Wakanda and his love for Ororo. Witness Doctor Doom’s pure faith in Doomworld, or, pure evil! However, the story may prove too dark for some audiences.

The comic is excellent for your collection. You will definitely love the action, the characters’ muscular physiques and the dramatic ending. This is the comic to own in order to build your Doctor Doom collection.

This product has 39 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.3 out of 5.

POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “Wakanda has been conquered, its Vibranium reserves plundered. Storm faces execution in the next 48 hours. And Dr. Doom stands triumphant. It will take the combined forces of the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and the two Black Panthers to stand against him. A war has begun that will pit the world’s most relentless super villain against a collection of the world’s most powerful super heroes–one that will span the globe, offering twists and turns and surprise players (hello Deadpool!) that neither side will see coming.”

NEGATIVE REVIEW

In addition, there are 4 negative global ratings. One negative review pointed the poor character writing: “Doomwar is basically a continuation of writer Jonathan Maberry’s Black Panther series. While I thought the series was decent this book isn’t even close. The political machinations that were present during Christopher Priest’s run on Black Panther are poorly imitated here and the book is loaded with great characters acting nothing at all like themselves. The inclusion of some characters is insanely ridiculous. The art by Scot Eaton is very good but nothing could save this flop of a story.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Hardcover and Paperback formats available.
  • Great writing.
  • Saves Black Panther’s marriage.

NEGATIVE:

  • Not enough customer review ratings.
  • Story dark for some audiences.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this comic as the most important Doctor Doom story Post-Civil War.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Super Power Explained: THE Top 10 Marvel Hierarchy Of Mutants Ranks By The Potential To Create Or Destroy Entire Universes

IN SUPER POWER EXPLAINED

TOP OMEGA LEVEL MUTANTS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE OR DESTROY ENTIRE UNIVERSES

In 'House of X' (2019) #1, the 14 Omega-Level mutants are listed.
In ‘House of X’ (2019) #1, the 14 Omega-Level mutants are listed. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

On Earth, the mutant gene was the result of experiments by the Celestials on homo erectus. In their experiments, the Celestials created the lines of the Deviants and the Eternals.

During their First Host on Earth, one million years ago, the Celestials collected the Wanderers, a tribe of Homo erectus. Gammenon the Gatherer collected the ape-men and sent them to Ziran the Tester who mutated them to have an unstable genome, creating the Deviants (Homo descendus), a race with various mutations, who were then released and went hiding in the caves. With other subjects, Nezarr the Calculator then created the Eternals(Eternals (Homo immortalis)), hairless, upright tall beings able to tap into the cosmic power. They were themselves released, flying out of the Celestials’ laboratory-ship. Finally, Oneg the Prober created a latent gene for the expansion of human potential and those modified yet apparently unchanged ape-men were released.

The potential for superhuman powers was only latent: That dormant “DNA complex”/”mutant genes” implanted in Homo erectus.

That potential was transferred to Homo antecessor,then to Homo neanderthalensis, both species experimented on by the Kree in order to create the Inhumans (Inhomo supremis).

It later came to fruition into the form of Homo superior, the mutants.

-Mutant Genes, Marvel Database

Depending on the mutation, Earth’s mutants display different abilities with variable range. In fact, the top Omega Level mutants have the potential to create or destroy entire universes. Let’s list our top 10.

10. STORM

Storm.

Uniquely, Storm is both a mutant and a goddess. As goddess, she is worshipped by the tribes in Wakanda. In fact, Ororo is an Omega Level mutant because she is considered a Storm Goddess. Contrary to Professor X, her weather powers are the result of magic.

Potentially, Storm has no upper limit to her manipulation of nature. Though, she may not be able to create or destroy universes. Indeed, her power potentially extends to the weather forces on Earth. For that reason, she belongs on this list.

9. MARVEL GIRL

Marvel Girl.

To this day, Jean Grey is the most well-known Phoenix Force host. As Phoenix, Jean possesses cosmic power on a multiversal scale. In fact, the cosmic entity is a firebird of rebirth and destruction.

Currently, Jean has rejected the Phoenix. As Marvel Girl, she displays telepathy and telekinesis at the Omega Level. Moreover, she has performed incredible feats since returning from the dead as Marvel Girl. In ‘King In Black’ (2021) #4, Marvel Girl invaded the mind of the primordial god Knull.

Considering Knull is a God of Darkness from the primordial universe, Marvel Girl definitely displayed the power to destroy an entire universe.

8. MAGNETO

Magneto.

Originally, Magneto was classified as one of the few Omega Level mutants on Earth. With his mastery of magnetism, he can destroy the planet’s magnetic field. However, his power initially rivals Phoenix’s. At his maximum, Magneto can siphon the magnetic fields of nearby planets. That is a Stellar to Solar System Level.

7. VULCAN

Vulcan.

According to Professor X, Vulcan is the most powerful mutant energy manipulator. As an Omega Level mutant, Gabriel can absorb, project and manipulate vast amounts of energy. Moreover, Vulcan’s power extends over the EM spectrum and even Adam Warlock’s magic.

6. HOPE SUMMERS

Hope Summers.

Incredibly, Hope’s mutant power is power mimicry. Meaning, she can only mimic the powers of those mutants she encounters in close proximity. At first, this may seem unimportant. However, there seems to be no definable limit to her mutant power.

In Avengers vs X-Men’ (2012) #12, Hope mimicked the Iron Fist to its highest potential. Aided by Scarlet Witch, she went toe-to-toe with a Phoenix-powered Cyclops. In the end, she landed a blow powerful enough to dissociate Phoenix from Scott.

Finally, Hope demonstrated the power to extinguish the Phoenix itself, when it claimied her as a host. Definitely, a universal feat.

5. ELIXIR

Elixir

In ‘New X-Men: Academy X Yearbook’ (2005) #1, Elixir is classified as an Omega Level Healer. Particularly, Joshua Foley’s mutation is the power to control his biology and others’ down to the genetic level. In effect, Elixir can heal from physical damage, reactivate suppressed mutant abilities, and even repair cerebral functions.

Initially, Elixir was able to heal only scratches, burns and damaged bones. Before his death, this ability extended to only a dozen or so mutants whom he needed to touch physically.

Moreover, Elixir can resurrect the dead. In ‘Uncanny X-Men Annual’ (2016) #1, Elixir has been able to resurrect the 16 million deceased mutants in Genosha. Indeed, this is a divine power. Definitely, a potential to create life and the universe.

4. MISTER M

In short, Mister M has been classified as an Omega Level mutant. Particularly, his mutation is matter and energy manipulation at the subatomic scale. Mister M can use his power to reconfigure matter or convert matter into energy.

3. PROTEUS

Proteus.

As an Omega Level mutant, Proteus possesses the power to alter and manipulate reality with his thought. In addition, his super power allows him to teleport and shift between the multiverse.

Potentially, Proteus possesses the power to destroy the universe. So far, his reality manipulation power affects only a limited area around him. Nevertheless, in ‘Planet-Size X-Men’ (2021) #1, Kevin was able to terraform Mars. In his energy form, Proteus needs a human host in order to live.

2. LEGION

Legion.
Legion. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

According to Doctor Nemesis, Legion is an Omega Level mutant. In fact, his mutant power is to create spontaneous mutations. Incredibly, Legion has over 200 split personalities each governed by a different super power. Potentially, Legion possesses the power to destroy the universe.

1. FRANKLIN RICHARDS

Franklin Richards.
Franklin Richards. AP Photo/Marvel Comics.

In “Franklin Richards: Marvel Confirms The Most Powerful Mutant Character,” Fortress of Solitude states Franklin Richards is the most powerful mutant. For good measure, since Franklin has the power to create, manipulate and destroy universes. Specifically, Professor X’s file lists his reality manipulation as Universal Level. Importantly, fans have speculated that Franklin may control the entirety of the Marvel Universe.

PROFESSOR X THOUGHT STORM WAS A MUTANT

Before joining the X-Men, Ororo Munroe was worshipped as a rain/fertility goddess by local tribesmen in Kenya. When the original X-Men team was missing, Professor X assembled new members to rescue them. During the first meeting, Professor X revealed to Ororo that she was not a goddess, instead, she was a mutant. Really, he made her the offer to discover the real world and fight for the cause of mutants. Curiously, Ororo accepted.

STORM’S WEATHER POWERS ARE THE RESULT OF MUTATION

Correctly, Storm’s weather powers are the result of mutation. In fact, Storm is one of the powerful mutants on Earth. Furthermore, the X-Man has been classified as an Omega Level mutant. With training and experience under Professor X’s direction, Storm has grown in skill, power and leadership.

An instance that supports Professor X’s thesis is Feat: Black Panther, ‘Doomwar’ #1. Here, T’Challa proactively invented a cell that nullifies the X-gene. Effectively, Storm has no powers under such conditions. However, there is evidence that Storm’s powers are based on magic and witchcraft.

STORM’S ATMOKINESIS

Atmokinesis: Storm is one of the most powerful mutants on Earth and has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, most of which are facets of her power to manipulate the weather.[167] Storm possesses the psionic ability to control all forms of Weather Manipulation. She has been able to control both Earthly and extraterrestrial ecosystems on several occasions. [Storm] can modify the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture (at a molecular level),[167] generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. [Storm] can incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes,[168] as well as mist. She can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

STORM IS A GODDESS OF THE STORM INHERITED THROUGH A LINE OF AFRICAN WITCHES

In ‘Marvel Tarot’ (2007) #1, we find out about Storm’s line of ancestry. In reality, Ororo Munroe descends from a line of witches. All of them, have distinctive white hair, blue eyes and the potential to wield magic. We can formulate two theories to explain Storm’s super powers.

First, Storm’s super powers showcase magical potential and properly unite science and magic. Here, the evidence that supports our hypothesis is the fact that Storm derives power from faith. In Wakanda, she is properly worshipped as a Goddess of the Storm. Furthermore, Black Panther, her former husband and King, considered her a goddess.

Second, Storm’s super powers are both divine and genetic. As Goddess of the Storm, she can hear and grant prayers. At the same time, her godhood is both the result of religion and magical inheritance. Indeed, Storm has both white hair and blue eyes. Therefore, these phenotypes presuppose a genetic basis. In addition, there is evidence that her powers are based on the X-gene. In conclusion, this may provide a rare case in the Marvel Universe where magical potential has a genetic basis. Moreover, it is possible that the X-gene is itself recessive.

For more information, refer to Mutant Biology on Marvel Database.

KITTY PRYDE SENDS ROGUE AND GAMBIT ON A MISSION TO PARAISO WHERE MUTANT COUPLES ARE DISAPPEARING

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #1, Rogue and Gambit are sent by Kitty Pryde to Paraiso as an X-Men couple. In summary, mutant couples are disappearing at Paraiso and Rogue and Gambit are sent to investigate. At the beginning of the issue, Rogue is training with the X-Men student body in the Danger Room. Gambit has been called in by Kitty and is sent into the Danger Room by Ororo.

During the training, Gambit saves Rogue from a Sentinel pinning her to the ground. At the end, Gambit and Rogue attempt to reconcile their past feelings. Meanwhile, the X-man is called in by Headmistress Kitty Pryde. She finds out about the mutant disappearances in Paraiso and that Gambit has been called in by Kitty in order to send them both into therapy retreat as an undercover X-Men couple.

IT’S A RING OF FIRE AND TELEPATHY IS AGAIN MANIPULATING ROGUE’S AND GAMBIT’S FEELINGS

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #2, telepathy is again manipulating Rogue’s and Gambit’s feelings for each other. After brain screenings, Anna and Remy have couple therapy with Dr. Grand. Interestingly, they reveal different accounts of their first encounter. Strangely, Rogue only remembers their first encounter as the result of the Shadow King’s telepathic manipulation on Muir Island. Doubtfully, she remembers her feelings for Gambit as the result of the Shadow King’s manipulation and as not being real.

Gambit reveals their first encounter was actually a fight on Muir Island manipulated by the Shadow King. Though Gambit won the fight, it was love at first sight and ended in a kiss. At night, the X-Men couple goes to investigate the Paraiso Island Hospital. They stalk the air ducts and infiltrate the lab. There, they are greeted by a super-powered hit squad and engage them. Accidentally, they find a lab with golems being experimented upon.

IN THE FINAL ISSUE, IT’S ROGUE AND GAMBIT VS THE GOLEMS AND LAVISH

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #4, the X-Men couple uncovers the truth about Paraiso Island. As a matter of fact, a golem supervillain is attracting mutant couples to the island in order to steal their super powers and their memories and create clones or golems of them. Rogue and Gambit realize the reason they have been loving each other is because Lavish has been feeding on their bad memories. With their super powers fading, Rogue and Gambit must fight Rogue and Gambit golems.

In ‘Rogue & Gambit’ (2018) #5, Rogue finds out they can both exchange their super powers and get their memories back at a cost. Indeed, they must live with the memories of the pain they have caused each other. Thus, Rogue decides to absorb the powers and the memories of all the golems and return them to all the other couples on Paraiso Island. In the end, even though their feelings have been tampered with, Rogue decides to be re-united with Gambit. Finally, the X-Men couple shares a kiss.

ORIGIN STORY


Ororo Munroe is the child of American photojournalist David Munroe and the Kenyan princess N’Dare. She comes from a line of African priestesses that have white hair, blue eyes and the power to use magic.1

Ororo was orphaned at the age of five, as her parents died in a plane crash in Cairo, Egypt. Though she survived from the accident, she developed a deep claustrophobia from being buried in the rubble. She was raised by a gang of thieves led by Achmed El Gibar. Ororo became a thief and once attempted to steal from Professor Xavier. At age 12, she decided to journey South. She accepted a ride from a stranger and was nearly raped by him. She managed to kill the man though she swore never to another human life.2

After nearly dying in the Saharan Desert, she saved T’Challa using her weather powers. The two shared romance though it was ended.3,4 Ororo finally reached her ancestors’ homeland on the Kilimanjaro Valley in Kenya. She was taken in by a tribal woman Ainet who taught her the use of her powers. Soon, Ororo became worshipped by the tribes as a goddess.5

ORORO JOINS THE X-MEN

Years later, Ororo helped the X-Men, battle a mutant known as Deluge that used Ororo’s control of weather to destroy humanity. Afterwards, she returned to her tribe.6

Months later, however, Professor Xavier was left with no choice but to recruit Storm, as he called her, and other mutants from around the world into the X-Men in order to rescue his original students from the threat of the sentient island being, known as Krakoa. Prof. Xavier explained to Ororo that she was not a “goddess”, but a mutant and had a responsibility to use her abilities to help the world, just as she had helped the local tribes. Curious, Ororo accepted Professor Xavier’s offer and was given the code name “Storm”.

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.

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!

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.
