When They Were Young: Supervillain Science Projects

Victor Von Doom (Marvel Elementary)

Known Today As: Dr. Doom

Noted For: Despotic rule of Latveria; quest for world domination

Project: Erupting Hydrochloric Acid-Magnesium Volcano

Grade Received: D+

Teacher Comments:
Experiment was ambitious but went tragically awry, compared to Reed Richards' successful baking soda volcano at other end of gymnasium.

Parent-Teacher Discussion Ignored at Humanity's Peril:

"Victor resists wearing safety goggles in science lab and seems lost in fantasy much of the time. As a side note, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, why on earth would you name your child Victor Von Doom?"


Norman Osborn II (Stan Lee Preparatory Academy)

Known Today As: The Green Goblin

Noted For: Success in chemical industry; obsessive crusade re: Spider-Man

Project: Insect Collection

Grade Received: C

Teacher Comments:
Substantial display, but spiders with two legs removed do not actually qualify as "insects."

Parent-Teacher Discussion Ignored at Humanity's Peril:

"Mr. Osborn, Norman has an unhealthy interest in... well, how can we put this? All he seems to have are unhealthy interests."


Otto Octavius (Kirby School For The Gifted)

Known Today As: Dr. Octopus

Project: Plutonium on Rye: Sandwich of the Future!

Grade Received: A+

Teacher Comments:
One onlooker accidentally mutated, but in a good way.

Parent-Teacher Discussion Ignored at Humanity's Peril:

"Your son is a brilliant student, but he's a bit shy and should be more physically active. And he really, REALLY hates both of you."


George Maxon (B'nai Brith Charity Orphanage)

Known Today As: The Red Skull

Noted For: Nazi affiliation; espionage; sabotage; snazzy mask

Project: Salt/Pepper Separation Demonstration

Grade Received: F

Teacher Comments:
There is nothing magical nor "Aryan" about static electricity, and banishment of pepper to "concentration dump" via model railway is in exceedingly poor taste.

Parent-Teacher Discussion Ignored at Humanity's Peril:

"Every day is Halloween with George in our classroom. However, we are seriously concerned about his attitude toward our Jewish students, many of whom he has tried to kill."
