Cool thread ODG.
The entire event was surrounded by stipulations in Doom's favor.
Beyonder warped the concept of Death on Battleworld,
only disintegration could kill you.
Beyonder put his guard down,
and was actually helping Doom when Doom pulled the PIS move.
And even then, it was all PIS that surpasses that of FL/SP.
Here we have the Supreme being
of a Multiverse trillions of times bigger than the infinite Marvelverse,
this Supreme being
is Millions of times more powerful than all of Marvel combined (including the Living Tribunal)
But Galactus' tech, LOL, with Doom's improvisation can get over on him?
Yea I know, gotta make it interesting to sell more comics,
but thankfully, that was Shooter's only forced PIS in Secret Wars I.
(there are other details as well ... but this isn't the thread for that)
According to Owen in the retcon, one can easily come to the conclusion,
that Doom was actually allowed to take Beyonder's power,
by Beyonder's own un-conscious will, according to MM:
You know and I know, that we both disagree sharply on this, as anybody who looks at these threads can tell. So I'd appreciate it if you not post this kind of discussion in a respect thread. I won't even post my rebuttal of what you just posted. Leave it elsewhere. Thanks in advance.
Dr.Doom is the greatest villian in comics, and in general up their with the greats.
should merge the other thread into this one.

What this means for future issues involving Doom is beyond me..
"A great tactician creates plans.
A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented to him.
A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept the plan.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with resentment."
Been away a few months. Here are some fights that Dr. Doom has had since the last time the thread's been updated. The Morgana Le Fay fight might not seem appropriate for a Respect Thread, but I think its a good showcase of Dr. Doom being ambushed by a high-level sorcerer and how Dr. Doom does when he ambushes a high-level sorcerer. Consider also that Morgana gets in the first volley both times:
Dr. Doom vs Morgana Le Fey, from Dark Avengers #3-4:
And his most recent fight against the new Sorcerer Supreme. One of the few times I've seen Dr. Doom combine his talents of technology and magic in a fight. And even though it was a prepped ambush, quite impressive considering Doctor Voodoo bested Dormammu in his own realm earlier in the issue.
