Marvel Comics used to have Super Villain Team Up. DC Comics used to have Secret Society of Super Villains. Who'd like to see a villain comic again? ... Here's one, with a villain on a quest!

Wikis! Auge von Shaitan
Well, crap. The early 1990s turned out to be a power struggle among the U.S. Gov, Ellipsis, and the Doom Bear. I'm pretty amazed that Powernaut Comics claims to have the origins of *any* of this. But I can't say they're wrong.
I've visited the Canadian Arctic. So I recognize their alphabet. I see Auge von Shaitan is using actual Inuit words. The ones he's using, translate to "Summon Destiny Bear". The Inuit do not have a word for Doom. But the Doom Bear suddenly seems to want to meet the Great Bear of the Inuit lands... This certainly wouldn't be the first time an evil mage miscalculated and the rest of us had to live with the results.
The Doom Creatures have shown up together on Earth since 1989. I think it was 1995 when they fought Total Conversion... In any case, the world knows those creatures. It might be useful to list them and their continents now. The creatures sometimes represent specific powers instead of just Doom; when known, this is listed. All their powers are at high superhuman levels, including the powers that come from their various species.
They all identify as cartoon animals. In three-dimensional form, they appear as living plushies. But they often take Earth animal forms.
Each Doom Creature has a Doom Sense. They sense impending doom.
The creatures roam freely throughout the Earth. The Doom Pony has adopted humans in Afghanistan. The Doom Koala and Little Doom Lion King have done likewise in the United States.
All the Doom Creatures are male... except maybe the Doom Spider Monkey of Attitude and the Exploding Doom Penguin. We can't quite tell.
I would have guessed either Psychovant or Pizza Fu would have taken over Powernaut Comics first. But the Doom Bear is the senior character of those three, so he has more chances. And at least it still took a funny animal to do it.
I'd like for this Doom Bear episode to have been in 1990, so as to slavishly follow Marvel Comics which was bringing back villain comics then. The occasion was Thanos overflowing from a Silver Surfer plotline into his own villainous quest, which would eventually be the basis of the world's highest-grossing movie (or two) up to 2019. The Doom Bear has likewise overflowed Powernaut Comics. But he's on a timeline, so he has stuff to do later in 1990 - when Ellipsis shows up. And Christine Lassiter needs some time to get there too. Hence, Doom Bear 1989.
This episode has a bunch of other things to explain. For instance, presumably the Doom Bear (and the other Doom Creatures) had predecessors. Also, he took over the Happy Bear Land somehow. Also, he's awfully fixated on fire and ice. Well, here's where we get answers.
I've already incorporated realistic fire art into my comics, plus realistic cloud art which I photographed myself. Now I include realistic ice art which I photographed myself, at the great Greenland icecap in 1999!
As of mid-November 2019, I have completed and incorporated all artwork for the episode. So I feel confident in producing two strips a week until the episode is through, before end of year. I might even incorporate "modal" single strip displays soon (like Facebook has). Happy Holidays 2019!

The whole series got done in six weeks, though it almost literally took a Christmas miracle to do it. Specifically, a certain Amazon shipping center decided it needed to give people the day off in the middle of peak shipping season. More time for Doom Bear Comics, then!
