"Yeah... I was trying to decide whether or not to mention that Doctor Droom inspired/became arguably the worst Avenger ever."

Luke Blanchard replied to 3's discussion Kirby Centennial
"Droom was renamed Dr Druid in the 1970s in Weird Wonder Tales, when some of his stories were reprinted, and other old stories were altered into Dr Druid tales. Kirby did the cover for #19, which reprinted his origin: "The World Below"…"

"As Luke already noted, Doctor Droom had a similar set up to Doctor Strange. There was one very significant difference between the two - Strange, through his origin, learned humility to counter his natural arrogance. Droom, however, received only…"

Intro (lite)

It's actually -3-, not 3. But the system does not compute that.

That's okay. I'm a hermit and retired. Trying to come out of the cave a bit, though. Starting to blog again, showing up here... basically imitating a real person. But No social media. Only do antisocial media. It's in the hermit guild bylaws.
