Quote:Well they are going the Ultimate version, which wasn't all that good of a comic to begin with.
And if they continue in the Ultimate frame of mind Doom is gonna be pretty lame. Seems screenwriter and directors can't help but keep tying Doom in to the F4's origin and giving him random powers (that's what it looks like in the trailers which is what happened in the Ultimate universe). I can't even get a flashback scene of college years Reed telling Doom he made a mistake and then the experiment blowing up in his face and then he leaves in anger only to take over his home country?
Similar to origin story fatigue, if FOX was smart and they're not they would've had this reboot be en media res. F4 already have their powers, Dr. Doom is already ruler of Latveria, etc.
I'm a F4 fan too and I'm just beginning to think they're too much of a good comic book to be properly adapted to a movie that'd satisfy F4 fans. Whether it was movie magic not being up to par, or too much continuity, or villains they can't properly adapt there seems to always be some problem.
