Fantastic Four: The Master of Doom
written by Mark Millar penciled by Bryan Hitch Doctor Doom had been the antagonist of the Fantastic Four for as far back as I had read Marvel Comics. You wouldn’t get one without getting the other, and you wouldn’t get a good Fantastic Four story without exploring how the villain plotted against the family or how he was involved even though the situation didn’t involve Doom directly. As cruel as he gets, even Doom has a master. So who would be powerful enough to make even the evil doctor bow to and call him master? One-liner intro: A brilliantly engaging read with twists and turns to get you hooked to the question: Who is the Master of Doom? Best part: Showing that even Doctor Doom has a teacher; death of Uatu (not really…); really surprising twists in the beginning. Not-so-best part: A rather dull final part wanes off to a rather usual ending; a more brilliant stroke by one of the most brilliant mind in Marvel-verse would be nice.
