Good, I needed that. 

Proof that I am not, in fact, the dorkiest person alive. Not by far.

I will admit that I find Dr. Doom an intriguing villain. I do not, however, buy into that stuff about how Lee and Kirby had all kinds of symbolism worked out for most of their creations. I'll buy the basic stuff -- the Hulk as an expression of irrepresible rage, for instance -- but, quite frankly, I don't think either Lee or Kirby gave much of a rat's ass beyond creating their high concept. Most of this stuff is applied long after, by theorists with a lot of time on their hands.

Like that guy.

Anyway: Comics now. Blogging later.
