Dragon Ball Introduces an Ominous New Doctor

Dragon Ball has a bad history with doctors, and heroes like Goku understandably distrust them whenever any show up. From Dr. Gero to Fu, scientists have done little but hurt the Z-Fighters unless they are named Bulma. Time and again, doctors have been an ominous sign for things to come, and it looks like Super Dragon Ball Hero will not be breaking that stereotype. After all, the franchise's PR anime put out a new episode some time ago, and it dangled fans off a cliffhanger featuring a mysterious (and menacing) doctor!

In the current story arc of Super Dragon Ball Heroes, a cavalcade of villains are beginning to bring a brand new war to the Z Fighters, as well as their alternate reality versions in the Xeno-verse. The Xeno reality consists of a number of very different characters that have taken different paths from the Goku, Vegeta, Trunks, and others that we've come to know from the Akira Toriyama franchise. Whereas the main Z Fighters are currently relying on transformations such as Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue, the Xeno fighters appear to be living in a timeline that combines elements from both Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball GT. For example, Goku and Vegeta in the Xeno-verse transform into Super Saiyan 4, while Future Trunks has been able to access the power of a Super Saiyan God.

The latest episode saw the main versions of Goku and Vegeta battling against Bojack and Turles from the original Dragon Ball Z movies, while Xeno Goku and Vegeta are apparently venturing into the Dark Demon Dimension to encounter this new doctor. Whether or not this new MD has a past relationship with the Xeno fighters is yet to be seen, but we would imagine that we'll get a more in-depth look into this member of Fu's army who has the ability to transform his arm into a weapon.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes is a worthwhile addition to the franchise as we wait for the return of the main anime series, giving fans a good number of "fan service" elements through things that we would most likely never see in the main continuity!
