Let’s Laugh at the Guy Who Doesn’t Know Marvel Comics (Part 4)


So I guess Dr. Doom has a set of “doombots”, which must be like robot servants. Which means he knows about robotics and technology. So does that mean he’s supposed to be a mad scientist or a mad dictator? This might be the reason I’m not that thrilled with him — he’s too much like Lex Luthor. Cause inventors thrive on the accolades and praise they get from inventions. But dictators want to dominate. Anyway, cute little robots.

Doombot (V-Series)

Less cute.  I guess Doom needed something to take on heavy hitters like Hulk and Thing.  I particularly like the little fan thing around his neck.  Looks like a dilophosaurus on steroids.

Drax the Destroyer

Comes from what I presume is a planet of autistic Klingons. I don’t know if the red marks are scarring or decoration, but I hope it’s scarring. That would be cooler. His family was killed by the guy who had the “black paint eyes-to-forehead” look before Furiosa did it.


As opposed to angry African-American blue guy, this Electro wears a silly lightning mask that looks like a star. He belongs in a Super Mario game. Besides that, I really don’t know anything about his origin. He seems to be a little high strung, like Megavolt, but less nerdy.


The Catwoman to Daredevil’s Batman.  Elektra is a Greek assassin trained by Daredevil’s old trainers, and uses twin sais and a headband.  I always thought if she had a few transformations like Catwoman’s had, she could be at her level.  As it is, she’s become an unfortunate blip on the MCU radar. Does not have electric powers, which makes her a superhero name squatter, like the people who buy up domain names.

Emma Frost

Girl with psychic powers AND can turn her body hard as diamonds. Basically Professor X and Colossus combined, but super super hot. Way overpowered IMHO. She was formerly a bad guy, but I guess in recent comics, she’s been acting as the de facto leader of the X-Men, with Cyclops as her whiny boy-bitch. Not a poster-child for woman-empowerment in comics.

Frost Giant

One of Thor’s bad guys.  And from actual Viking lore, I believe. Makes for nice disposal foot soldiers to make short hammer work of.


Giant demigod and ubervillain who consumes planets for nourishment.  I guess he’s one of those guys who’s always been, always is, and always will be.  Assisted by Silver Surfer, who guides him to these planets in order to avoid as much collateral damage as possible.


One of the X-Men’s most eligible bachelors. Comes from Louisiana and speaks with a VERY thick Cajun accent. Like super-thick. Thicker than that guy from The Green Mile. His power is telekinesis which he uses to chuck playing cards around, even though a “gambit” has to do with chess. Also whacks people with a stick.  


Not an Orion Slave Girl or She-Hulk.  Well, maybe an alien She-Hulk. She’s another of the Guardians of the Galaxy. A former bounty hunter and former ally of one of the bad guys. I guess she’s part of the GOTG team now. Probably the love interest of Chris Pratt.
