Doom 2099 #5

Doom 2099 #5 - Comic of the Day
Of course the future baddy has a mo-hawk.
I swear this is the last Doom 2099 post for awhile. I just had to briefly speak about something I have been noticing in the Doom 2099 books, and especially in Doom 2099 #5. So here it is...

Within the first couple of pages in the comic of the day a Doom support tells Doom, "This is the 21st century Doom." This has been said to Doom several times. The people saying it are implying that Doom is out of touch with the current times, but it drives me crazy to no end because...

  1. Doom is in fact from the 20th century...but just barely! Doom 2099 draws Doom from the current time-line which is on the year (when the comic book was printed) 1993. Doom lived 7 years away from the 21st century. That isn't very far.
  2. The people who are telling Doom that it's the "21st century" are just barely in the 21st century. Why would they reference a century they are on the edge of? It is practically the 22nd century. Just say the 22nd century. It's like when your birthday is tomorrow and someone you don't know asks you how old you are today. Just say how old you will be tomorrow. They don't know you. Who cares?!
Listen people in the year 2099...no one is impressed. We get it, your tech is more advanced, yet everyone dresses like it is the 80's again. If Doom says something you think is dated don't give him your snarky opinion. If he wants your opinion, he'll take his 20th century dick out your mouth.

your review of this book is outdated. Get with it, it is the 21st century!, so what is next Ravage, Spidey?

Haha. Well played Budd. By the way, I actually reviewed the first issue of both Ravage and Spidey, last year. Though it seems like a century ago...
