Speaking of Doom’s face, I see in one of their misguided attempts to reveal it Marvel went the staggeringly original route of simply COPYING it from a victim of leprosy in Ridley Scott’s KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

Q4JB: How do you envision Doom's strength level, without the benefit of whatever level of enhancement his armor provides?

I have a sneaking suspicion that Wolv's adamantium skeleton might not have been pure... I think the Canadian government subcontractor would probably have cut corners with something 'just as good' from Sarnia, Ontario, and then pocketed some of the money 'saved'. In the House Of Commons the Weapon X project was probably brought forward once during question period for it's cost overruns only to mysteriously disappear from the record!

I really must never be in charge of X-Men comics... :^D

"Knowing Kirby had intended Doom to have only a small scar, but Stan wanted Victor’s face hideously scarred, I did both." < id="protanopia"> < id="deuteranopia"> < id="tritanopia">

Thereby showing the brilliance of all three creators, and creating magic. 

p.s. Thanks for returning the gun Doom used to sport!

JB - the Doombots appear to be shorter than Doom. Is that foreshortening
or Doom’s ego on display?

Just prior to halfway through this issue, I'd said it was looking at being the best issue of the series so far.  I think I can say that is the best issue of the series.  Excellent beginning and ending, lots of great character moments, surprise guest stars and subplots moving forward.

Doom looks great! Love seeing Mac and Shaman (and
Heather), can't wait to see what happens between these two
evils, and Wolverine's story too?!? Thank you very much!

***

When speaking English, probably, though I'd imagine Doom went to some effort to speak English perfectly. On this page, just the two of them, it's likely they're speaking German, not English, as Doom might deign to use Magneto's first language.
