First few stories were difficult to understand because Ellis just continued someone else's storyline and had to tie it up.
Main story, and main treat if I might say, is Doom's idea to help Earth's population by enslaving world and becoming a benevolent dictator. If this sentence sounds attractive to you, I guarantee that plot and conclusion will not let your hopes down! It would be difficult for low calibre writers to take on such a topic, but Ellis shows just how good he is in this book.
Along with Planetary, this might be my favourite Ellis' work.
I won't spoil the rest except to say that this is a beautiful piece buried beneath some crap. The first few chapters aren't very good (Ellis was having to follow someone else's plots) but once you get past those you have an epic that is well worth the effort.
Dr. Doom has been an effective antagonist to heroes for 50 years because he is more than a villain -- he's a scientist, dictator, conqueror, son and pariah. We've gotten snippets of his persona and background over the years, but very few fullscale character studies. Chuck Dixon wrote a Doom miniseries several years ago, but it was quite disappointing.
Dr. Doom was handled extremely well in the Secret Wars miniseries in the 1980's, as well as in Emperor Doom and Triumph & Torment (2 outstanding graphic novels).
The art is very 80's/90's colorful, splashy and overdone. The plot is derivative of Frank Miller's Ronin (a man from the past fights the corruption of governments, which have been taken over by corporations). A college freshman might appreciate Ellis's critique of government and business, but it's really too overstated and then beaten to death. This is an early work by a skilled writer who was still honing his craft.
