What happens when Doom has his first new adventure under the stewardship of Warren Ellis? Has he changed his approach to leadership, or is he still the same calm and cool leader we've come to know and love?

  1. Interesting commentary on a tone shift with a new team. I always wonder what the discussions are before hand. Like did Marvel say 'we should make Doom more street level?' Or did Ellis said 'I have a good pitch for Doom as street level?'

    Sometimes a shift like this works (Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is now a plant, not a man) but not always. Sometimes a character is malleable to different tones (Constantine is cocky because he hides pain under Delano; is a right bastard under Ennis, is linked to British myth under Jenkins). Sometimes it's a desperation ploy to save a title from cancellation (Supergirl is no longer an Earth Angel and just has powers under Peter David) but this rarely works.

    Anyways, intrigued to see where this goes!

    1. Yes, there is an interesting history of "tone shifts" in comics. Good point. Stay tuned!
