I guess the eurozone crisis has hit Latveria particularly hard since Doctor Doom has apparently resorted to knocking over convenience stores to pay the bills.
If you’re in the Richmond, VA area, be on the look out for the dictator, who, with one of his associates, knocked over a grocery store in the 3000 block of Stony Point Road on Friday night. Doctor Doom walked into the store around 11 pm, having traded in his customary suit of armor and green tunic and cape for a green hoodie and some runners, and ordered the cashier at gunpoint top open the cash register. Doom and a man wearing a orange and brown with a skull and bones design and a nondescript black mask ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No magic? No Doombots? No death rays? Wow, Doom’s really come down in the world. Citizens with any information on the current whereabouts of Doom and his cohort are asked to police, or call Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000. You can also text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Obviously, the Richmond police would appreciate it if those tips didn’t come from your comic collection.
