After growing the Latverian empire through bloodshed, Doom turns his attention to the potential apocalypse that is the black hole in Earth's orbit, as he's the only brilliant scientific mind left that has any chance of preventing catastrophe. But in the wake of all he's been through, Victor grapples with a profound change of heart... one he dare not show his enemies, else they see his weakness as opportunity!

    In this issue, Doctor Doom's plan for saving the world and redeeming himself goes awry thanks to self-sabotage. It's quintessentially in-character for the villain-turned-antihero. A cerebral script is handily supported by powerful art, allowing the book to dive deep into Doom's psyche while also telling an exciting super-science adventure story. Read Full Review
