Infamous Iron Man #6
While Infamous Iron Man #6 doesn't attempt to explain the bizarre reveal that Cynthia von Doom is alive, and apparently involved with Reed Richards, the comic series' latest issue does offer a glimpse into the past of Doom, Richards, and Ben Grimm. Given the unburdened character striving for redemption we've seen in action over the past few issues, this is a sobering reminder of who Doom used to be.
Following the trend of the comic so far, we see Doom pay a visit to a former ally in the Wizard. His attempt to take the villain down also brings in S.H.I.E.L.D. and Sharon Cater (who fares no better than Maria Hill did in stopping Victor von Doom).
No one said Victor von Doom's journey from villain to hero was going to be easy, but S.H.I.E.L.D.'s interference is likely to cause more than just an inconvenience before too long. Next issue's introduction of Riri Williams isn't likely to go over well for the new Iron Man, either. Worth a look.
