From the Watcher's Datalog: When a handful of Earth's heroes and villains were kidnapped across several light years to the alien Battleworld to fight a Secret War, Doctor Doom thought he'd successfully stolen the power of the cosmic entity called the Beyonder. However, Doom was unaware he had only stolen a portion of the Beyonder's near limitless abilities and the tables were turned, stripping the uber-villain of his newfound godhood. But what if...? What if events occurred differently? What if Doom discovered his mistake before it was too late and won the Secret War? In other words,"What If Doctor Doom Kept the Beyonder's Power?"

    Comics Bulletin - Mark J. Hayman Dec 30, 2008

    The windy synopsis explains the players and the program and provides sufficient information to have saved the story from being set to music (or pen and ink, as the case may be). What's served is wholly predictable: fight scene, fight scene, redemption, fight scene, young romance, fight scene, clich final (full) page. Spaziante's work is easy to follow, though evokes a style more suited to New Exiles than the Runaways. With the exception of having completely borked Molly Hayes, his characters are approximately what we should expect, and his panel construction often clever without being ga-ga. One and one half silver dinguses (the three bullets at the top are solely for the Doom story). 'nuff said! Read Full Review
