Canadian Todd: Marvel reading list, post-Civil War (ca. 2012)
End of Civil War to beginning of Secret Invasion:

Flutehampton will turn out to have always been relished by women who dwell in or near to the past. This is where The Little Reptiles were digitally collected. In recent decades it has become a popular photographic background whenever a maverick cop marries a hooker with a heart of gold.

felt like brubaker's doom mini was an absolute travesty and missed everything that was fun and cool about stan and jack's original vision of the character in favor of this garbage teen angst version

they also show him without the mask at the end and he has no face besides the skin around his eyes, he's just a bunch of robotic tubes and gristle and shit

i was totally infuriated reading the thing, it's one of the worst brubaker comics i've read and i hope it stays out of the canon forever

Aw damn, should've known writing a character like Doom would play to Bru's worst tendencies.

Don't you hate it when people try to right Doom as a benevolent dictator and underwrite Doom's villainy by trying to make him morally grey?

Also it's been a while, but SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS wasn't the ending to Books of Doom showing an imprisoned doombot who thought he was the real Doom or some such? And the reporter lady was going to be in jail with the doom bot, yeah? I forget. SPOILERS OVER SPOILERS OVER SPOILERS OVER

see i never liked director of shield

thought the mandarin was a poor fit for the type of storyline they were doing, that his inclusion was motivated more by a need for a marquee iron man villain to be the big bad than anything specific about the character himself

also thought that basing the entire long-form story on ellis' extremis arc, right down to using it's supporting characters instead of rhodey/pepper/happy hogan/jarvis/etc. emphasized a poor grasp on the character and his world, i think even ellis probably sort of felt like the random ex-girlfriend who invented extremis was a cliche. was surprised and horrified to see her dragged out of the tidy ending ellis had given her and turned into a regular fixture of the book

doom IS a benevolent dictator, part of doom's power has always been that there's a chance the world actually would be better with him charge of it, that's why the "emperor doom" ogn was so much fun

depictions of latveria as an eastern european wasteland where women have to wear burkas and are super oppressed don't make sense to me, millar got it right in his brief depiction of ultimate latveria as a wonderland technocracy where anything's possible, robots do everything, and doom's bizarre appearance seems perfectly at home

stan and jack's doom was petty and immature but also driven, brilliant, dashing, and vain - dude would never mutilate himself like brubaker shows him doing

old fantastic four, secret wars, emperor doom, triumph and torment, those are doom

waid's unthinkable, brubaker's books of doom - totally off-base

absolutely. and i've never seen much exploration of latverian day to day.....you'd think doom's kingdom would be full of these amazing characters, but he's just show doing it all himself. of course, i haven't read the aforementioned emperor doom.

And Fraction's Uncanny run is one of the best examples of editorial stifling some good ideas. If only he could've shaped his run around Beast and the science team...
