After the last issue of Fantastic Four knocked my sox off, I went into reading this one filled with high hopes. Would the tale that introduced Dr.Doom be as compelling and as good as the tale that reintroduced Namor?

The cover and the opening pages offered such promise, starting off with the view of our new antagonist. Then leading into the home of our hero’s.  where some character development by way of a skirmish between The Thing and The Human Torch is about to be underway.

While the issue starts off good, I must say it does not live up to the expectations I had after  last issue.
