Superb stuff. Astonishingly good. Two fascinating, well written and complex characters go head to head in riveting battle. This is as good as it gets. Wow. 10/10

  -The Skull is really sellin' it on the cover--Conviction, my friend, conviction.
-"Gloat while you can, you fleshless, crimson cur!" Doom is such a badass in this one.
-Finally, we get some more info on how The Shroud "sees."
-More Doom v Skull awesomeness...not sure why I enjoyed this so much.

  So Doom can lay waste to all the Avengers with little problem a few issues back, but Red Skull on a space scooter is supposed to give him problems? Tough sell Marvel. You can do better.

  I wish they went into more detail as to how the Skull survived the last battle with Cap and the Falcon. Other than that, great conclusion.

  By this point I think you can just assume that the Red Skull is immortal since he can survive pretty much everything.
Man, Red Skull gas seems like an ever worse way to die than Joker toxin.
It's not unbelievable that Skully is giving Doom such a hard time, since he's using tech that Doom himself created.
My main issue with the Skull/Doom fight was that it was pretty much pointless. The Shroud had already disabled the superweapon, so it really didn't matter who won. It would have been nice of Doom to let the Shroud know that touching the thing would cause it to activate though!
