Synopsis for "The Name Is Doom!"

On their way home from the Hidden Land, the Fantastic Four are stopped by S.H.I.E.L.D jets and brought before Nick Fury and Dum Dum Dugan. Fury asks the FF to go into Latveria to investigate the disappearances of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and any information they have regarding robots that might be active in the region.

Sneaking into Latveria, the Four's presence is soon discovered by Dr. Doom, who incapacitates the whole team by sending his Servo-Guards to deal with them. Waking up in a house, Reed and the others are shocked to see that they haven't been put in a dungeon and that the people of Latveria are cheering them as honored people. However, when they try to leave the country, Dr. Doom prevents them from doing so, saying that if they attempt to do it again he will have them killed.


Continuity Notes[]

  • The Invisible Girl is not present in this story because she is on a leave of absence from the team after she gave birth to her son in Fantastic Four Annual #6.
  • Dum Dum Dugan's appearance here is a complicated one. As revealed in Original Sins #5 Dugan was seemingly killed in action back in 1966 and it was suggested that he was replaced by a complex LMD that thought it was Dugan. However as revealed in New Avengers (Vol. 4) #17, Dugan's body was kept alive and his mind was transmitted into LMDs.
  • Doctor Doom was revealed as ruler of Latveria in Fantastic Four Annual #2. His conquest of that country was depicted in Books of Doom #56.
