Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today (as we enter the second month of cool comic book moments) we take a look at one of the high points in Doctor Doom’s tenure as the major villain of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four (and one of the Silver Surfer’s low points).
In Fantastic Four #57, by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, the Silver Surfer (who only recently was stuck on Earth as a punishment for disobeying Galactus comes across Doctor Doom and Latveria.
Naturally, Doom betrays him, and in an amazing scene, actually STEALS the Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer!
And this is how awesome Lee and Kirby were – the following full page spread was NOT the final page of the story! They had this amazing moment in the middle of the book!!

Doom has rarely been more imposing since this moment, and certainly never as much BEFORE this moment.
