Latverian rebels Craig and Bill (wait, are we Latverian "rebels", or Latverian "rabble"?) return for more Doom related goodness!
On this episode of the world-famous Doctor Doom Cast, we look at Submariner #47, "Doomsmasque!", Submariner #48, "Twilight of the Hunted!", and Submariner #49, "The Dream Stone!". As Bill notes right at the beginning, this might be the only known instance of a comic book featuring Doctor Doom, The Submariner, and a pimp (although, it's never explicitly called out that said character is a "pimp").
But...Neptune's Trident! While this "pimp" fellow is certainly...puzzling, to say the least, he's somehow NOT the most reprehensible character in this storyline! That title must go to one of Doom's henchmen, the repugnant "Wilson", who sets a new standard in awfulness, even for evil toadies!
We get to see more of Doom as a "man of wealth and taste" art critic (Why haven't we ever gotten a story where Doom attends an art exhibit? Or meets Andy Warhol?) and find that he seems to have a soft spot for the elderly (well, they could have been middle-aged, we're not sure). We also wonder how Doom hires his flunkies? Is there a Latverian HR department? We discuss the odd artwork that went into creating MODOK, and Bill catches a reference to "Godzilla" that breaks apart the space-time continuum and makes us ponder why people looked so much older in the past? (Even when drawn!) People younger than we are now looked twice as old!
All this and more! Listen now! DOOM COMMANDS IT!!!
