I wonder what Kid Apocalypse sounds like. Haley Joel Osment with a deep echo?

I meant to include this month’s Captain America, but I misplaced my issue. This week really shows the difference between Bucky Barnes and Nick Fury. Bucky owns up to his failures and sees them through even though he doesn’t have to. Nick Fury refuses to blame himself for anything and continues to point the finger at anyone else because only he can deal with the big picture. Fuck Nick Fury. Fuck him right in the empty eye socket.

By the way, I noticed that Cable’s smoking a cigar in Deadpool Noir! Nobody tell Quesada!

  1. God, it bugs me when the heroes “get along” with Doctor Doom. The man’s a mass freaking murderer, but every time they need to team up with him they’re all wry humor and witty repartee and respectful salutations. Like it’s just so gosh darn cute that now they’re playing on the same team, it has to make you chuckle. That old tin-plated knucklehead! This’ll be one for the photo albums.
    Makes me want to vomit.
    Seriously, doesn’t anyone else find it hard to swallow that no one’s casting dirty glances at the unrepentant genocidal maniac? Dude’s killed more innocent people than the American highway. His name isn’t ironic. He’s evil. And don’t give me any of that “oh, in his heart he really does believe he’s doing the right thing” stuff. The creep has sent little kids and old ladies to Hell. He wore said old lady’s skin. That wasn’t for “the greater good.” He did that to get even with some guy he knew in college. That is not the sort of man you pal around with. If you have to work with him, you owe it to humanity to bitch and moan and not be nice to him. Can we please stop having fun with Doctor damn Doom??

  2. It’s an all-ages comic, dude. Chill out.

  3. Who’s that holding the head? I hope it ain’t Phil Urich.

  4. I don’t what pisses me off more.

    That Phil Urich has been further ruined or that Roderick Kingsley was killed by him.

    Slott manages to ruin BOTH of my favorite Goblins in a single stroke.

  5. Yeah, sorry. I just, y’know, love getting on those little soap boxes.

  6. @Joe: Funny stuff. And a fair point.

    I am intrigued by the idea of Doom (like some incarnations of Magneto) choosing the wrong means to a somewhat noble end, but yeah, that skin thing was phukkin RAW.

    That Gen Lost ish intrigues me simply because I wanna know why Kara is wearing that outfit. I’m thinking about paying (too much) for it on the iPad just to find out.

  7. @ Mike:
    Really doubt Roderick is actually gone. I guy whose MO is brainwashing people into thinking they’re him, gets killed by a guy with a history of hallucinations? Somethings definitely up.

  8. @Alec:
    Even if Phil legitimately killed someone there, Roderick Kingsley apparently has a twin brother, so it could be a fakeout that way as well.

  9. I am mesmermized by that Detective Comics panel.

  10. Oh god how did no one

    “I wonder what Kid Apocalypse sounds like. Haley Joel Osment with a deep echo?”

    Now whenever I read it I’m going to hear Vanitas voice from Kingdom Hearts (Osment doing an “evil” voice, complete with laugh)

  11. Oh god how did no one think of the fingertip “Bat-Taser” yet :c00l:

    (pressed enter too quick. :frown: )

  12. Doom wearing the skin armour was massively out of character, as was most of his mass murdering. Doomwar should have named after Black Panther, Doom was pretty much an interchangeable villain in there.

  13. @Alger Hiss: Doom has done enough horrible things that the skin armor was perfectly in character.

  14. “We’re heels-up in five.”

    That’s pure genius, right there.

  15. @david brothers: Well, what if we think those horrible things were out of character, too?

    Obviously characters like Doom, who are owned by a company and get written by countless different people, are never going to be all that consistent in their characterization. Sometimes the differences are jarring, and it’s perfectly normal for us, as readers, to pick and choose. Since there is no such thing as “the real Doctor Doom”, it’s up to us to decide which stories work for us, and which simply don’t work for the character as we understand him.

    To me, making Doom a mass murderer is a mistake. Having him sell a loved one to demons for power is fundamentally at odds with the character as I understand him. Of course, people have as much right to their own interpretation of Doom as I have my own.

    But I’ll say one more thing. Villains need their redeeming qualities just as heroes need their flaws. Making Doom completely, iredeemably evil makes him more shallow and one-dimensional. In other words, it makes him the last thing a fictional character should become, which is less interesting.

  16. @Lonnrot: Right on.

    That’s exactly true. I grew up in the eighties, when Doom was almost a completely neutral figure when it came to anyone not named Reed Richards.

    But beyond that, he’s always been an honourable man when it comes to two things: his word, and the women he loves. He has his flaws – psychopathic cruelty is not one of them.

  17. Easy suggestion. Whenever you think Dr. Doom has done something you think he shouldn’t be doing blame a Doom-bot

  18. @Lonnrot: And this, this, is exactly while I fail to slobber all over Waid’s FF like everyone else.
