    I liked the little bit of Doom we saw in X-Men 2099. From the issues I read Doom was the best thing that happened to the mutants. He gave them their own city.


Yes, there were some definite improvements in his short reign. His alliance with Wakanda enabled him to borrow some of their tech to reduce air pollution in the U.S. He made internet access, which IIRC were called dive booths, a right for all. There was a one shot special that printed a multipage Doom manifesto. It's included in the TPB and there are several sections about mutant rights I believe. I should scan that in one day. Ellis took that one nugget of info in Doom's origin where he briefly led a sort of Latverian resistance against the aristocrats and built on that aspect in Doom 2099.
