I can feel it. An imbalance in the universe.
It awakened me in a cold sweat at the cusp of dawn. The omen came to me in my dreams. Endless cosmic energy flowed through these unknown beings, seemingly a haunting image of Galactus and his Herald. But these two did not share their mercy. The very essence of lifelessness poured from their auras.
I don't know who they are, but I know that they are threats to the entire Multiverse.
I arise from my bed and, under the assistance of my Servo-Guards, don my titanium armor.
"Something troubles you, Master Lord Doom?" said the metallic voice of one of my minions.
"Yes. What troubles Doom bodes ill for all living things." I said as I pulled my cloak over my head.
I walk out of my personal quarters and head down a long, decorated hallway to the spiraling master stairwell. Two of my second-tier Doombots stand at guard at the bottom of the stairs, and as I pass them I relay orders: "Activate all defense systems country-wide. There is a threat looming over this world and I will not idle by while it grows stronger."
"Yes, Lord Doom." they said simultaneously.
They scurried off in the opposite direction, and I carried on through my castle's halls. After a few moments of walking, I approached large, carved wooden doors and pushed through them. The room I entered was a massive occult library.
