A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 216
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at an interesting moment involving Iron Man and, of all people, Doctor Doom…
Iron Man #150, by the stellar creative team of David Michelinie (plot and script), Bob Layton (plot and finished art) and John Romita Jr. (layouts) tells the story of Iron Man and Doctor Doom transported into the past, more specifically, the time of King Arthur.
Doom, being Doom, makes a deal with Morganne La Fey to help him save his mother in exchange for him leading an army of the dead to kill King Arthur. It’s a cool battle scene – maybe that could be a cool moment in the future?
Anyhow, Iron Man runs from the battle to go take care of her, and he does.
Well, when her army of the dead collapses, Doom realizes that his chance at saving his mother is done, and he is not pleased, but we get to see an impressive scene between him and Iron Man…
There are a lot of great little moments in that sequence, but if I have to pick one, I guess I go with the bit at the end when they sort of size each other up and then part ways silently.
Great scene between two great Marvel characters.
