Synopsis for "The Invaders!"
Continued from last issue... After crushing the rebellion to seize his throne, Dr. Doom orders the people of Latveria to return to their home and rebuild everything at it once was, an order the fearful citizens comply with. Deciding not to stay in Latveria for the reconstruction, Doom leaves only wishing to return once his castle has been rebuilt.
As Doom rockets off to the Riviera, he is unaware that the goings on in Latveria have been monitored by the Red Skull and his group of Exiles. The Skull intends on taking over Latveria, in order to take advantage of it's status with the United Nations as part of a plot to initiate a Fourth Reich. As Doom vacations and easily dispatches some would-be thieves, the Red Skull and his Exiles manage to easily take over Latveria, it's human resistance easily quelled.
As Dr. Doom grows weary of being on vacation and the treatment he is receiving from the owners of the hotel where he is staying, Doom angrily totals their gambling room when it's suggested that he may use equipment in his armor to win at roulette. Furious Doom decides to return to his home, completely unaware that the Red Skull's invasion was a complete success and the Exiles have converted the place into an image of Nazi Germany.
