VM: Doom is a 4-letter Word

~Avengers: The Children's Crusade #8 (2012)

Victor Von Doom. Well, what can you say; little did we know, amidst all the world-threatening events of Fear Itself, when the rest of us were cowering in fear, he was courting Wanda Maximoff, otherwise known as The Scarlet Witch!

From Avengers: The Children's Crusade, this 9-issue limited series is tearing a hole in the Avengers: Dissembled story and what we thought happened. (No, I'm not going to spoil it; besides, issue #9 isn't out yet.)

I highly recommend this series to Marvel readers. The potential here is to redefine Avenger's history. The plot is straightforward; Wiccan and Speed, two nearly-identical superheroes are speculated to be the magicked children of The Scarlet Witch. After learning more of her past, the Young Avengers embark on her trail, hoping to find answers from a previous era.

Villainous Moments is a column from of The Superheroes List, updated weekly (usually Tuesday). What are the bad guys doing this week? Macabre and unthinkable, grotesque and unbearable; here's your answer! Look for #VillainousMoments on Twitter.
