Victor Doomashev is a anti-social Eastern European computer programmer and hacktivist who calls himself “Doom”. He hates the 1%, particularly Storm, whom he claims corrupts science for profit.
Here we go again with “Dr. Domashev.” I still can’t get over the fact that he’s more of a programmer than an actual genius in the sciences. I’ve ranted about this since I heard about it but there’s no point in doing so again since director Josh Trank is still unfazed by all the negativity.
Storm uses Reed's paper to complete some equations on a machine to access another dimension, the N-Zone. Reed invites Ben to watch the machine being turned on. Sue and Johnny are also there. Doom manages to hack into the Baxter Building's servers and use a computer virus to damage the machine, which explodes. Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben are exposed to otherwordly energy and become mutants with powers that they can't control.
An experiment gone wrong? Typical superhero origin story if you ask me. The only new element here would be the virtual presence of Doom.
Storm takes them to the Baxter Building and creates containment suits for their powers. They begin to train. Reed and Storm also begin developing a way to revert the accident. Sue blames Reed for everything, but they eventually become friends and then a couple. Ben can switch off his powers when he's not in danger. Johnny changes colors based on heat intensity, and Sue has some borderline telekinetic thing. Reed is pretty much Reed.
This is the part which I like although the problem is, this sounds like the Fantastic Four movie back in the early 2000’s. Still, it sounds good and can be one of the highlights of the movie.
