2012’s The Avengers brought together all the elements from the planned Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was a payoff movie, and one that was executed brilliantly by Joss Whedon. It also gave us the first on-screen appearance of Thanos (now played by Josh Brolin) whose foreshadowed war on the universe would be put on hold for several years. Until now. Since The Avengers, too many of the Marvel movies have been forced into world building while telling their story. For the first time in years, there is no horizon which frees sreenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and directors the Russo Brothers to simply tie the elements together as Whedon did six years ago and tell one hell of a story. And you know what? They do a damn good job.

infamous-iron-man-12-doom

After last issue’s reveal of just who has been toying with Doctor Doom this entire time, Infamous Iron Man offers a team-up between Doom and Doctor Strange against Mephisto (who appears quite put out by the idea that Victor von Doom could perhaps redeem himself).

infamous-iron-man-11-strange

Infamous Iron Man #11 offers a big reveal about just why this other Reed Richards wants Doom stopped. The reveal actually works quite well, and explains quite a bit without having to go into much depth. Much like S.H.I.E.L.D., this “Richards” has a definite agenda when it comes to stopping Victor von Doom. The question at the heart at this series has been whether or not Marvel’s biggest villain has a right at redemption. While not coming to a definite conclusion as to what he should be able to do, writer Brian Michael Bendis and and artist Alex Maleev state that Doom could (just maybe) become the kind of hero he wants given enough space and time.

infamous-iron-man-10-orders

Mothers and sons. Infamous Iron Man #10 picks up events with Victor von Doom spending some time outside this dimension recuperating from his time with S.H.I.E.L.D. The fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. agents attempted to murder a helpless prisoner has been quickly forgotten as the Thing is sent after Doctor Doom to finish the job Doom’s mother prevented from happening aboard the Hellicarrier.

infamous-iron-man-9-now-this

Following Doom‘s bizarre vision, the former super-villain turned would-be hero is arrested by S.H.I.E.L.D. If that wasn’t enough, a few agents decide it’s better that the tranquilized prisoner never wake up at all.

infamous-iron-man-8-kill

Infamous Iron Man #8 offers us a confrontation of two would-be Iron Men. Tracking Doctor Doom back to Latveria, Riri Williams is surprised by not finding a fight waiting for her but a talk with a weary former villain attempting to make good. I’ll credit writer Brian Michael Bendis for offering something different other than the “make ’em fight then work things out” you expect to see in just such an encounter. Instead Risi is completely thrown off by Doom’s stance and his vision of the future.

infamous-iron-man-6-problem

While Infamous Iron Man #6 doesn’t attempt to explain the bizarre reveal that Cynthia von Doom is alive, and apparently involved with Reed Richards, the comic series’ latest issue does offer a glimpse into the past of Doom, Richards, and Ben Grimm. Given the unburdened character striving for redemption we’ve seen in action over the past few issues, this is a sobering reminder of who Doom used to be.

I’ll admit I’m a bit lost as to what’s happening here. Here’s what we know: Doctor Doom has taken over the role of Iron Man. S.H.I.E.L.D. sent the Thing to find and take down the former super-villain turned hero. Discovering Ben Grimm went to Latveria in search of his prey, Doom returns home to the country he once ruled with an iron fist only to discover… his mother? What is going on?

infamous-iron-man-4-latveria

Doctor Doom‘s attempt at a heroic turn as Iron Man continues as the former super-villain sits down with Commander Maria Hill aboard the S.H.E.I.L.D. Helicarrier. Okay, the fact that he wasn’t welcomed (and they attempted to arrest him), doesn’t get off to a great start, but things could certainly have gone worse. Although he doesn’t convince Hill of his good intentions, he does manage to leave without making things worse. And he learns an important piece of information that leads the former monarch of Latveria home.
