    Okay, I can see the kid helping people figure out how to take on these villains with or without heroes, but Galactus is on that cover. How the fuck does anyone stop that?

    VOLTRON! FORM BLAZING SWORD!

    Kick-Ass #2 was pretty rockin, I liked the extra goodies in the back showing a page from script to penicls to inks to colors.

    Plus a sweet big ol 1985 teaser.

    I thought it was Jenkins, not Millar who made the Nazi comparisons.

    I'm confused, isn't the negative zone prison stuff from Civil War? That was before Millar was writing the book... right? Or is there something in the latest run about this that I, as a chumpy TPB reader, is not yet aware of?

    After Ultimates, Wanted, and Civil War, it is going to take a lot of convincing for me to go anywhere near Millar, sweet sweet art or not.

    well, at least in 1985 the pop culture references might be about Ghostbusters or something

    We see a little bit more of the villain. The villain may not be quite who seems at first. There’s a mystery running through this thing. This also ties-in with [my “Wolverine” storyline] “Old Man Logan” and also ties-in with my run on “Fantastic Four.” “Marvel 1985” is essentially the origin of the big villain coming up in “Fantastic Four.” [Series artist] Bryan [Hitch] and I have Dr. Doom’s two masters, the guys who trained Dr. Doom, coming into the story towards the end of the year. “1985” stands very much on its own as a series, but also as the origin of the Fantastic Four’s greatest villain ever, the guys who trained Dr. Doom, essentially.

    This is from a Mark Millar interview over at CBR. I was under the impression this "one man event" was just him bullshitting and PR spinning to make more people buy his books. Id idn't actually believe they were linked in any way. Seems I was wrong and the 1985 villain is going to be the villain in one of his FF arcs.

    So did I. Probably the best writing Millar has done since Superman: Red Son. Kick-Ass is written well, but this is better.

    Kick-Ass isn't part of the crossover Millar issues, only FF, 1985, and Wolverine tie in together. Which is good considering how delayed Kick-Ass is right now.

    thats not true, Millar has said that Kick-Ass does tie-in in some way, although not nearly to the degree as the other three.

    More of a thematic tie-in I imagine.

    So I saw a magazine page from Wizard or some place on s_d. I am not sure of the legality of linking a magazine scan... It is about Mark Millar's one-man event in 1985, Fantastic Four and Wolverine. In the article, the big bad guy is revealed, sort of.
    Dr. Doom's dimension-traveling master-- The Hooded Man! He travels through realities killing everyone and according to the interview, is pissed that Doom has not killed everyone on Earth. Does Doom need a master? It seems completely against the character.

    I wonder if The Hooded Man will be a metaphor.

    Is it, perhaps, fanboy pedantry that destroys comic books?

    Dr. Doom kills the guy. That's the only thing that could happen.

    Disagree:
    I'm reminded of the discussion of the New Gods and the multiple worlds, and whether there are (for example) 52 Darkseids. It's canon that there is only one set of New Gods, i.e. that there are no alternate versions of Apokolips or its inhabitants. I wonder if this hooded man is an alternate Doom, gone insanely powerful, who makes his alternate selves destroy their universes as a price of joining in the union of this collective Doom-gestalt. Our Doom is certainly scheming against him, but he's facing some enormous amount of equally brilliant and more powerful versions of himself.

    But Doom would never destroy the world. He wants to rule it, not kill everyone on it.
