Doctor Doom - Other People's Toys - Travis M. Holyfield

Panel 1.  DOOM stands on a deserted flight deck of a space station. Holographic displays show star systems and technical specifications. Doom stands with his hands behind his back, peering at the technology around him. 

DOOM: A moon-sized satellite equipped with a superlaser,  A weapon designed to kill planets. 

DOOM: Crude. A blunt-force solution to a problem of precision. 

Panel 2.  Closer on Doom. We can see over his shoulder to an empty walkway. 

DOOM: Still, it  is a tool. One that can perhaps stem the tide of Incursion. 

DOOM: Doom shall have it.

Panel 3.  Doom shifts slightly, and in the space over his shoulder we can see a dark form is standing on the walkway.

DOOM: Doom suggests you step aside.  

Panel 4. We pull into the figure, to reveal DARTH VADER. Vader ignites his lightsaber. 

DARTH VADER: Step aside? 

DARTH VADER: You underestimate the power of the Dark Side... 



  1. A+ would read again.

    Seriously, nice mixing of worlds and characters. Would love to see how Doom and Darth would get along.

  2. Yeah.

    Definitely would read the hell outta this. Cool through and through.
