2099 UNDER DOOM

    After Doom's conquest of the United States of America, all 2099 titles were affected. Some had minor changes, some had major. Nevertheless they all felt the hand of Doom in one way or another. Below is a list of Doom 2099's appearances in other 2099 titles during the 2099 Under Doom period. All of them take place after the pivotal events of Doom 2099 #29. In some issues Doom makes nothing but a cameo appearance. Summaries will reflect only Doom's role in the issue. Issues are grouped by series, but the series themselves are listed in no particular order.
