I saw this panel today and I got to thinking about Dr. Doom, my favorite comic book villain after Magneto. For all his bragging about what he is going to do, this numnut has a worse success record than Cobra Commander and we all know that CC couldn't take over an ant hill.
I have come to the conclusion what with all his abilities that Dr Doom COULD and SHOULD be able to take over the world and the universe but he is such a vain poser who knows that he could never KEEP his newly gained omnipotent power, that he just goes through the motions and sabotages himself at every possible turn. How else do you explain how he gets close enough to the brass ring but can never quite grab it and keep it for himself?
Maybe that is why I love him. I know that he is going to fail, he knows he is going to fail but he will always find someway to blame it on someone else like Reed Richards, who he has had a hard-on for since University, rather than do some post scheme analysis to see where and when he fucked this latest plan up.
Let it go, man. Stop livin' in the past, man. Like the dog who chases the cars, first figure out what you want to do with the car once you catch it, then come talk to me.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
