Dr. Doom is usually badass, but in this two-parter he’s kind of an idiot. The team is broken up, so Doom picks them off, one-by-one, and holds them prisoner. But first, Johnny is riled up at a public event, causes a disturbance, and spends a night in jail.
This makes him easier for Doom to capture, of course.
Each member falls.
Plus: Ridiculous cell phone.
It sucks that Doom is being debased like this. Also, Darkoth learns that he’s not a death demon after all–he’s an old friend of Ben Grimm from Yancy Street who was kidnapped and mutated by Doom.
