Doom ro to his feet as he continued to speak, walking right up to the cell's energy barrier and to Reed Richards.

"That underneath it all beat the cold, calculating, emotionless heart of a scientific mastermind", Doom stated softly as he stood looking Reed dead in the eyes mere inches from his hated rival, only the energy barrier of the cell separating them.
"Just like me..."
"No," Reed said, shaking his head. "I'm not like you. I feel the same urges you do, sure. I mean, I'm only human... but I don't act on them. I rise above them. I do good in spite of those dark compulsions I may feel. There is no shell here, Victor. What you see is what you get. I fight my dark side and try to do my best. Like I said, I'm not like you... I'm better."

Reed finished up sizing up the cage and stepped back.

"And remember what I said about tinkering with time. You try another stunt like this and I shall be very cross with you," he said, slipping into a faux British accent at the last part. "And, my dear boy, you shan't like the results..."

With that, Reed turned away from Victor and walked away from his cell.
