Dr. Doom! Nouriel Roubini, Comic Book Economist

Once your nickname is Dr. Doom, you're already a good part of the way toward becoming a comic-book character.

Nouriel Roubini — nicknamed Dr. Doom for more or less predicting the financial crisis — took another step toward comic-book immortality yesterday, when he gave a talk at a Google's Zeitgeist conference.

Roubini tweeted this comic-esque picture somebody drew to go with his talk:

I emailed Google to ask who made the drawing, and to ask for a better picture. I'll update this post if I get any of that info. If you want to watch Roubini's talk, by the way, you can watch it here, starting about 20 minutes in.
