Intentions:


Basically I'm looking for someone to pick up the role of Morgana le Fay from Marvel comics. The two make a most interesting duo. Doom is arguably the most important Marvel archvillain (and occassionally hero) of Marvel. A scientist without equal and one of the most powerful sorcerors. Morgana on the other hand is also quite intelligent, half faey and the most powerful Sorceress in the Marvel setting.


Doom met her already in distant comic past and gave her his aid to get back to his time. As the 'strongest of magicusers', Doom hoped to learn from her the bits of magical lore he needed to finally reach the magical prowess required to free his mother from eternal torment in Hell. He led her undead forces against King Arthur and Iron Man. However due to Iron Man's interference, she fled and left a disgruntled Doom hanging in the Arthurian times. Doom and Iron Man joined their brilliant minds and managed to get back, replicating the effect of Doom's timemachine.
Later on he 'summoned' Morgana and tricked her in aiding him, after which he punished her for betraying him previously.
Much later she pops up in the Doom plotlines as his love interest. He visits her frequently it seems and the two powerhouses clearly respect each other. Doom makes a deal with his dark lover and receives knowledge he desires to create a magical army. However unlike he promises he never returns to her side. This left Morgana heartbroken and furious.
Doctor Doom however did not return as he had been defeated and imprisoned.
Much later she would somehow be able to reach him and faced him in combat. Taken of guard Doom was defeated. Morgana as interrupted by the Dark Avengers and eventually outwitted by Doom who used a magical spell even she did not know.
Sent back to the prehistoric age, she was last seen chased by a T Rex...

Plotwise I'd like to take up this (by now messed up?) plotline and see what kind of spin we can give it, integrating both chars in a longterm plot.

We can 1)

Show how they became firmly 'allied' and entered a romance

and/or

2) What/how things might evolve for the better between them once more.


SUGGESTION 2: Day of Doom  /  Unlikely Allies / Last Stand in Latveria


Suggested 'pairings':

In theory any villainess/heroine could be used in these variant scenario's. Even several depending on the setup.
A few likely candidates are of course Susan Storm (Invisible Woman), Scarlet Witch etc due to their bumpy 'pasts'.
But i'm open to suggestions. Especially if for one reason or other the heroine in question might 'stand out' from the norm.

Basic plotline:

a) Unlikely Allies / Last Stand in Latveria

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

The apocalypse has come. Be it Sentinels, an alien invasion, strange regimes, an odd entity or a combination has led the world of Marvel to be turned into an eerie setting a bit akin to the era of Apocalypse.
The number of heroes has thinned, genocide is the norm and even most villains have been dealt with, siding with the side of good or evil.

The plot would have 2 possible variants:

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

1) Doctor Victor von Doom is to be convinced to aid the 'Resistance' but he is reluctant to do so. Either he leaves away from the public in isolation, is reluctantly 'allied' to the new 'Regime', has been 'imprisoned' in some shape or form or 'dissapeared'.
The idea is to form an alliance pitting the noble 'archvillain' and the heroine(s) against the common foe while trying to find some common ground.
Especially if the heroine is for instance Susan Storm or a hero that knows Doom well, the tension may be great.

2) A last stand in Latveria. The kingdom is an isolated paradise, protected and untouched. But the 'Resistance' tries to flock to the place hoping to find shelter. But they have no guarantee Doom would allow them entry. If he did so... the enemy's full might would be turned against him. And what hope does Doom have against that?


b) Day of Doom

An ever popular theme... which has been displayed countless times in comics. But never expanded on enough.
'What if Doom wins'? Recent events have shown that even a just god had to acknowledge Doom despite his insidious egotism is the safe and orderly path for Earth. With Doom as Emperor, the Earth would be safe from threats within and without.
It has also been shown Doom 'could've' claimed the mantle in the past.
And he's been shown wielding the power's of the Beyonder, ruling a parallel world etc.
Question is... which setup would be the most interesting.
A benevolent egocentric tyrant facing the odds as a new threat rises. While 'others' seek to oppose him and eventually realize they may need to 'save' their opressor? There are many options and possibilities.

c) Solitary existence:

Doomsday: Alliance

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

"Doom shall not be denied!" - Doctor Doom, Monarch of Latveria

A few set-ups, all involving around Marvel chars and the infamous Dr. Doom.
A site with a lot of information on the character is:
http://www.angelfire.com/zine2/drdoom/

- Disaster strikes Earth and all seems lost. Only Doctor Doom seems to have the intellect and know-how to save the world. However it remains uncertain wether he wasn't the direct or indirect cause of it all. And to make matters even worse, Doom is reluctant to intervene, preferring to safeguard Latveria.

- The Fantastic Four have finally succeeded in capturing Doom. Locked away in a cell, the Latverian Monarch seems powerless. But as things escalate, Susan Richards drifts away from her teammates and surprisingly finds common ground with Doctor Doom. When the going gets tough, who will succeed? Reed Richards or Victor Von Doom? And who will Susan side with? Who is right? Who is wrong? And will Victor betray the Invisible Woman and his other enemies for the sake of personal glory?

- In the aftermath of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Doctor Doom has been snatched away by Odin to be tortured for all eternity. His destiny taken away from him, Doom seems without a means of escape.
However it is then an unexpected female figure steps forth to offer a way out... .
(possibly Enchantress or another char)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel:_Ultimate_Alliance


- The future is here. In an unlikely turn of events Susan Richards (Invisible Woman) and Doctor Doom had a child who skippers between a destiny as Queen of Latveria and a just superhero.
Besides this conflict, Victor and Susan also stand dramatically opposite of each other as Earth is threatened but Doctor Doom refuses to act beyond his own ambitions.
Their daughter though not as brilliant as her father, still is an accomplished scientist and on top of that inherited part of her mother's powers. She however had a crisis of her own. Will she become Doom, Invisible Woman or be her own person. And what about these... improper thoughts she has about her parents? And what if she wasn't really their daughter at all? What if this timeframe is completely wrong?
- Emma Frost, the White Queen has reforged a new Hellfire Circle however she requires a King. Her experiences during the Dark Reign era have brought her more directly into contact with Doctor Doom and she has decided that he is the perfect candidate. But how can she corrupt him to her side?
And who is truly in charge? Emma, Doom or someone else?

The witch and the tyrant: an unlikely engagement revisited

Used and misused... was Scarlet Witch just a pawn in Doom's grand game to gain omnipotence? Or had there been more to it?
Could there be again? And what if other choices were made?
Food for thought indeed...
