Doom's appearance in Dark Avengers also revealed quite a bit about his sorcery: (i) although ambushed by a prepped Morgana Le Fay, Dr. Doom is able to briefly hold his own for a time; (ii) apparently, Dr. Doom can use time travel with not just his machines, but his magic too when he banishes Morgana Le Fay to prehistoric ages; and (iii) transference spells capable of turning a god into stone are "simple" ones and easily reversed by Doom, from Dark Avengers #2 and 4:
Doom's fight with Doctor Voodoo revealed a few things: (i) he can teleport, (ii) he's got an Ectoplasmic Ionizer that discorporates ghosts, and (iii) he can literally seize control over magical teleportation energies, from Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural #1:
^ Personally, I've never subscribed to the idea that two feats must be mutually exclusively from each other.
I've never felt the need to reconcile the two feats but for your curiousity, offhandedly, I'd say that in Secret Wars, Galactus bore the main brunt of the Beyonder's attack and Doom was luckily subjected only to the aftershock, whereas in Mighty Avengers, Sentry clearly has one of his redeeming uber-moments, ala curbstomping Terrax, overloading Absorbing Man, etc.
There aren't a lot of pure armor feats since Doom is rarely stripped of his forcefield, but I've neglected to add in a few obvious instances where he eschews the use of his force-field and completely relies on his armor. So I'm going to post a bunch to help illustrate the extent of his armor's durability. Here, the Human Torch's flames have literally no effect on his armor... heck, they don't even singe his cape. From Fantastic Four #318:
While it doesn't appear apropos for a respect thread since Doom is getting mightily pummeled, this is one of his armor's more impressive blunt force durability feats. Keep in mind, Namor's famously ripped Ironman's armor apart like it was paper underwater a couple of times. Here, Doom's getting straight up blitzed by a bloodlusted Namor underwater AND another Atlantean. I think that just surviving the barrage despite the doubling and redoubling of the blitz is quite impressive, from Namor vol.2 #31:
^ Hmmm. I assumed his standard suit contained vibranium. I always considered T'Challa to be a prepare-for-anything at-any-moment type of guy. After all, why wouldn't he use vibranium in all his suits? Wakanda's rich with it. But then again, it may not be true. I'll have to re-read to see if it's mentioned at all.
In the meantime, here's an old one-on-one fight with Human Torch that I never uploaded. Don't know why, maybe because I thought it was too short. Because basically, Johnny gets curbstomped by Doom.
^ On review, I saw nothing that suggested Black Panther was prepared to take on Doom. Truly, a case of PIS. Because T'Challa and Doom both agree on how he would never agree to be recruited by Doom. And yet he shows up without his best suit? Stupid. For plot's sake. Which is what PIS is.
I've read Black Panther vol. 4 once through, and I don't remember any specific instance where he said he did, or didn't have, a vibranium enhanced suit as his base normal suit. Frankly, despite T'Challa's character of constant preparedness, unless someone has proof all his suits have vibranium lacing, than it's just a case of PIS on his part.
^ Thanks. Some more updates focusing on the Doom's genius:
Doom combines his genius in both magic and science to resurrect the Atlantean, Attuma, who had previously had his head torn off by Sentry years ago. Not only that, but he increases Attuma's strength to Namor's level and gives him the ability to fly and breathe on land, from Dark Reign: Made Men #1:
Doom adds to his extensive knowledge by vivisecting Asgardians alive. A vile foray into knowledge that even Loki admits he has not explored. And within only a day or two, what is one of the first things Doom does with his newfound knowledge of Asgardian physiology? He creates cybernetic undead drones from their corpses with which to defend himself, from Thor #603-604:
Doom adjusts and repurposes some old Doombot designs to act as assassins for Loki. Capable of wiping out entire divisions, notice that he is able to prevent them from being tracked both scientifically or magically, from Thor #603:
Here, a special Doombot emits thousands of smaller energy-siphoning drones which leech off the Iron Patriot's energy levels within the space of several panels (notice also that the energy source is completely unidentifiable by his Starktech), from Siege: The Cabal #1:
Sentry didn't pwn him. Reread his shield were already at like 7%, he had already used some of his power on Strange, and Sentry caught him off guard at the last minute when he took the mask off. Earlier he was pwning Sentry which I believe he did twice. All Sentry did was take his mask off and Doom didn't want to fight. Doom hates showing his face so that was really a weakness he accidentally exploited
^ Been working on a substantial update, but I suppose there's no need to wait to put it up. Here, a Doombot's managed to incur the wrath of Thor which was exactly Doom's plan all along. This one's far from over.
Actuality Shell, which is a forcefield of "true matter" which impressively prevents Nightmare's anti-energies from warping Latveria into the Unreal. As perspective, those anti-energies warped the entire world into the Unreal, from Doctor Voodoo: Avenger of the Supernatural: #3:
great job ODG. like your attitude too man, keep it up.
