So the Doop is getting an all new series, set to take place during “Battle of the Atom,” but just who is this guy? Even longtime X-Men fans might want a bit of a refresher, especially if you didn’t read X-Statix or Wolverine and the X-Men.
1. Doop is so badass that Wolverine asks him for help.
If Mr. “Best There Is At What I Do” turns to you for help, that means something. Doop carries on this duty throughout the Wolverine and the X-Men series, most notably in issue #17 where he is recruited, and issue #42, the final issue of the first volume.
2. Doop knocked out Thor.
Look at that quality punch! Take that puny god!
3. Doop is a lady’s man (and kinky).
Yikes! Anything to please a lady though! Or a man, or a whatever, the very versatile Doop is multi-sexual.
4. Doop toys are a thing.
Plushies, keychains, botttle openers, etc. . . you put the Doop on it, and for some reason it will sell like hotcakes in the Marvel U.
5. Doop can rock out.
Just one more way in which he protects the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. Based on this reference, I bet he’s mastered inward singing too!
6. Doop is equal opportunity.
Equal rights, equal fights eh?
7. Doop murdered a guy.
To be fair, it was pretty much the same kind of situation as in a recent episode of The Walking Dead. Also, it was X-Statix. That book was just nuts.
