To attain his goal, you've seen him hurl the Fantastic Four into space, team up with the Red Skull and challenge the Beyonder... but were you there when he stole the mighty Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer?! Trapping the sky-rider in an energy-siphoning device, Doom, now with near omnipotent abilities, sets out on a world ravaging rampage! Meanwhile, the Surfer sheds his silvery sheen at an hour of crisis-stuck in the middle of a violent revolt!

Now's your chance to experience the legendary adventure as it's re-imagined for a new generation!
