Jack Kirby cvr/art; origin & 1st app. of Dr. Doom, bondage cover, Dr. Doom Movie Rumors!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.
We are offering another copy of an essential Marvel key here with the very first appearance of
probably the most infamous, and likely the most influential supervillain of all time -- Doctor Doom! Without Dr. Doom, there would be no Darth Vader, let alone a slew of other baddies in pop culture! Stan Lee and Jack Kirby truly outdid themselves with Doom’s creation. If you are a true Marvel collector this is indeed a must-have issue!
