Infamous Iron Man #10

Mothers and sons. Infamous Iron Man #10 picks up events with Victor von Doom spending some time outside this dimension recuperating from his time with S.H.I.E.L.D. The fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. agents attempted to murder a helpless prisoner has been quickly forgotten as the Thing is sent after Doctor Doom to finish the job Doom's mother prevented from happening aboard the Hellicarrier.

Admittedly distrustful of the creature claiming to be his mother, it still takes nearly the entire comic for Doom to get the woman to slip-up. Now things can get interesting. However, before the slip, Cynthia does get Victor to reveal a bit about his larger plans as Iron Man.

Other than fucking with the villain turned super-hero, just what do she and the alternate dimension's version of Reed Richards have in plan for Doom? I'm guessing whatever it is, it isn't going to be pleasant. But, given Doom's recent actions versus those of the "heroes" around him, just whose side with Ben Grimm end up on? Will he realize in a world gone mad the closest thing to an ally is his oldest adversary? Worth a look.
