My oldest was unable to play in the Pokemon tournament at the hobby shop today, so I decided to make it up to him by bringing out the superheroes for a bit of action instead.

Doctor Doom and his HYDRA allies had managed to intercept a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. shipment of Omega Energy crystals, (not so) cleverly disguised as a Weetabix truck.  Who could stop him from seizing this awesome source of  destructive power?

Luckily, the Fantastic Four were in the area.

 Doctor Doom knew he was in trouble and braced himself for the attack.

As Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman raced down the street, the Human Torch took to the air and the Thing charged Doctor Doom.  However, Doctor Doom got the best of the Thing this turn and managed to injure him with his electric shock gauntlets.

 The Human Torch fired off a nova heat blast at a HYDRA trooper, but unfortunately missed.  The initial combat was going in the villains' favor.

 Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman make it to the fray, taking on a HYDRA trooper who gets knocked out.
 This time Human Torch hits his target, taking out another trooper. The Thing manages to score a few licks on Doctor Doom behind the truck, but a HYDRA trooper manages to score a hit on Mr. Fantastic with an RPG.  Luckily his rubbery body absorbs some of the damage.

 The Human Torch scores against another HYDRA trooper who tried to take cover behind the truck. Mr. Fantastic takes out the trooper with the RPG, while Thing and Doctor Doom continue to slug it out.

 Doctor Doom is finally knocked out by the Thing, leaving Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman to mop up the last of the HYDRA troopers.

The Fantastic Four returned the Omega Energy crystals to S.H.I.E.L.D., keeping Superhero City safe once again from Doctor Doom's nefarious plans.


  1. Poor Doctor Doom, he's so misunderstood.....good sounding and looking game for the boys!

  2. I loved that batrep. The pictures are great! Scenery fabulous. The pleasure on the faces of the boys is sublime. Thank you for making me smile this day!
