The Doctor Doom Cast returns with a look at some of Doom's "greatest hits"! If you ever need examples to help highlight why Doom is the GREATEST VILLAIN of ALL TIME, you'll find them in the issues covered here today!
This episode finds us diving into Astonishing Tales #4, "The Invaders!", and Astonishing Tales #5, "A Land Enslaved!". Doom has defeated the lackluster Rudolpho and heads off to the French Riviera for a vacation, leaving Latveria to fall into the hands of the Red Skull and his pitiful band of henchmen known as the Exiles, a D-list group which includes such notable luminaries as Cadavus (the "Monarch of the Murder Chair"), Krushki (a shirtless wrestler), and Baldini (who wears a fez and assaults people with a towel...let that one sink in a bit).
You get Doom in all his glory, throwing out terrific insults and one-liners and making a mockery of the Skull and his sad gang of toadies. We also find out that Doom sleeps in his armor and has no use for casino gaming! (Listeners who create deep fakes, how about creating a deep fake version of "Casino" starring Doctor Doom?)
We discuss our feelings on how joyous it may or may not be to place people in mummy cases, and as a special bonus, Bill gives us his review of the 1989 horror classic "Pet Cemetery" starring "The Dollar General version of Paul Rudd", which leads us to ask the question, "Has any plan that involves bringing someone back from the dead ever turned out well?"
All this and more! Listen now! DOOM COMMANDS IT!
