Dr. Doom, you ruthless bastard. You parasite. You… Wait. Did you really siphon the Power Cosmic from the Silver Surfer in a wicked splash of Kirby Krackle?! Doom, you’re alright after all.
Also in this issue: an early splash page where Jack Kirby rocks his modern art style in the disguise of fantastic machinery!

This is why Jack Kirby is the man. No doubt about it.
True. And so is Doom…whenever it comes to a who vs. who discussion in the comic world, I remind the people who are going back and forth that while there are a lot of really good super villains and superheroes, only one guy ever managed to steal the power cosmic, and that same guy later took the power of the Beyonder.

That’s right – he stole power from Galactus to kick the Beyonder’s butt right in the middle of a dissection… One of our favorite superhero scenes of all time: https://marswillsendnomore.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/what-is-pain-to-one-such-as-i/
He’s also made Superman look like a chump and foiled the plans of Mephisto – not to mention kicked a lion’s ass naked. His triumphs are endless! Yet his arrogance and inability to admit his own mistakes, coupled with an inability to let go of slights to his precious ego, guarantee that in the end he will always get his butt handed to him by the ‘good guys.’
