Over Labor Day Weekend, our repository server gained sentience and walked away.

It's back and said it just went for a walkabout and didn't mean to cause any distress. What is interesting though, is it will neither confirm nor deny the existence of these "motorheads" we've heard about.

Thank you all for your concern, and batteries.

The motherboard manufacturer sent a replacement part and we have put the repository server back together. We are back up and running and will now continue our regularly scheduled programming. (please pardon the pun)

Infamous Iron Man (or IRON DOOM)

What are everyone's thoughts on this? Doom taking up the mantle of a hero (rather than bad guy who does good things) is beyond unique but I can't help to think his reasoning is a little out of character.

I will say, though, that his new suit is beyond amazing. So much so I'm thinking of adapting it into a new design for Nightmare.

Revenge is motivation enough. At least it's honest...

Doc Oc was Spiderman for a time.

And other villains have turned good before, though they usually don't take up the mantle of a hero.

I'm not partial to the design itself, prefering the more classic Doom look, but to each their own.

Edit: And as for thoughts? Seems neat. Doom has always been a favorite of mine. , So it's good that he, presumably, won't just be relegated to a bit part in someone else's story.

And like most changes in comics, it'll probably be undone in a year or so. Unless he proves wildly popular as a hero. Which would mean people would need to pre-order comics. Because the comics industry is dumb.

I guess he finally completed

I guess he finally completed his 20 alignment missions and 2 morality missions.

Then again, knowing him he probably just bought an alignment change token instead of doing the work.

Doc Ock was Spidey, yes. Various villains have "turned good" for a while but what makes it unique for me is that it's DOOM. I can't think of any time he's ever had even the smallest inclination to do some heroing unless it directly benefited him.

Classic Doom will always be the best design IMO and its longevity is just a testament to how good it is. Aside from various mask interpretations he's never dramatically changed his appearance... ok besides the original design of Ultimate which was garbage anyway. But the current look to me seems like they decided "What would Doom Look like if he was created now?" It's a nice modern take on his appearance.

Doom can do good. AFAIK he

Doom can do good. AFAIK he actively cares about the people in his country. Of most big deal villains Doom seems one of the most likely to me to work on the side of good.

Especially when he's tried pretty much everything else.

Of course -- how silly of me!

I remember hearing about this

I remember hearing about this, but I've drifted away from comic books over the last few years (looking at you, Marvel, and your endless Civil Wars...), so this might be worth looking into. Thank you for reminding me.
