As Ben and Johnny try to sleep and find themselves the victims of each others' practical jokes, a robot drone flies toward the Baxter Building. Reed is working in his laboratory while playing chess against H.E.R.B.I.E. when the computer suddenly stutters and says one word: Doom. Meanwhile, the drone's cloaked passengers enter the building and blast down a vault door. Inside are various pieces of equipment, including Dr. Doom's mask. The intruders uncloak and reveal they are Doombots...Read the full recap
Johnny: I was about to get frozen and you went to change your clothes?
Susan: Well, you're fine, aren't you? Anyways, those were my good pajamas.
Reed: Doom's signal is coming from the dangerous artifacts' room.
Susan: I knew that room was a bad idea. It's even got the word dangerous in it.
Ben: This can't be everyone, can it? But the building's huge and this is it?
Reed: We do have a few vacancies. Well, most of the building, actually. I suspect that the constant supervillain attacks are keeping potential tenants away.
Johnny: Wimps. Can I have all the empty apartments?
Susan: Why would Doom want your research on cosmic energy?
Reed: It's Doom. Who knows why he does anything? He could use the data to de-power us, give himself powers, create some kind of cosmic power monster, end the universe, that kind of thing.
Ben: Oh, good, then nothing big.
