  • not the best

    this is not the best introduction to doctor doom. His costume looked horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and his glowing eyes. at times the animation was off. His voice even sounded like a robot. It took him way too long to describe his origin. they also introduced Doctor doom in the 2nd half, I mean he is like Batman;\'s Joker and Superman\'s LEx Luthor, REscue RAngers Fat Cat, Ducktales Beagle Boys, JAmes Bond JR\'s Doctor Derange. At least they described his origin but it took him too long. at least they had the aspect of MR. Fantastic knowing Doom as his former Roomate and colleage. I was so frusterated I almost threw the romote down in Anger. I watched this through DVD.moreless

    • This three-part episode is based on Fantastic Four #5.

    • The video for Doom's past was used later on the "Iron Man" CD, which also included two comics, an interview with Stan Lee and a trivia quiz.

    • Doctor Doom's past as related to Sue omits his mother entirely, placing focus on instead his father, probably to avoid mentioning of demonic forces. This means that later, when Doom talks about the experiment that blew up in his face, no mention of its purpose to rescue his mother's soul is made, denying this tragic villain any nobility or tragedy. Instead, the experiment is described purely as his own desire for fame and power. This, like a lot of the dumbed-down animated series damages the best thing Fantastic Four has going for it, a great villain. The opportunity to explain his past, over the 3 episodes of this storyline, is trvialised by making him out to be entirely revenge driven, when in fact his greatest personal goal is to rescue his sorcoress mother. The only mention she gets is that she died when he was young.
