Grade:
CGC VF/NM: 9.0
Dr. Doom, according to Jack Kirby, was modeled after the Middle Age concept of Death, hence the skull-like mask and hood. Kirby claimed that Doom, a genius inventor, sorcerer, and leader of Latveria, is inherently evil, and as a result of his facial disfigurement and hatred for Reed Richards, he lashes out against the world in perpetual vengeance. He is one of comics' greatest and most complex villains ever created and he makes his debut here in Fantastic Four #5. Created by the team of Kirby and Stan Lee, this character has been copied and imitated many times over the last fifty years, most notably as one of Lucasfilm's inspirations in creating Darth Vader. This era of Kirby covers defined the industry aesthetic of the period and the dynamic composition informs the reader of what they can expect inside the book's hallowed pages.

The saturation of this comic's colors is perfectly preserved for posterity, as well as the quality of the pages themselves. Doom is an incredibly popular villain in the Marvel stable with a large following and scores of avid collectors eager to grab every appearance of the hooded terror and this copy is sure to be snatched up by the most ardent of them all.

Overstreet Guide 2019 VF/NM (9.0) value = $16,240.
