Hello Latveria! (and beyond!) Welcome back to the world-famous Doctor Doom Cast!
Join us for yet another exhilarating episode! We review Giant-Size Super Villain Team Up #1, a flashback issue that features Doom and his frenemy Namor debating whether they should once again join forces (since they've both betrayed each other multiple times in the past). This mega-sized issue contains one new wraparound story, "Encounter at Land's End", and some reprints of a few other classics: "In The Darkness Dwells...Doom!" (originally printed in Submariner #20) and "This Man...This Demon!" (originally printed in Marvel Super-Heroes #20, and covered on Episode 9 of this very podcast! )
We also learn from Bill that Namor was an influence on rock legend Gene Simmons (!), and that there was once a comic book company war for the word "superhero"! In addition, our discussion of Doom's greatest foes reaches a fever pitch due to Bill's hatred of the accursed Squirrel Girl!
All this and more, including our ponderings on how technology continues to fail humanity, the advantages (if there are any) of having our minds placed "Freejack" style within Emilio Estevez' current body, the leaps and bounds (apparently) made in fire extinguishing equipment since the early '70's, and whether or not Craig will one day mistakenly end up on display in a carnival freak show!
