An AI Was Asked To Expand The Classic 'Doom' Cover Art, And Its Answers Are Epic

Have you ever wondered what else might be going on in the epic battle scene on the cover of 'Doom?'

“Yep, that’s hell!” a commenter plainly stated.

“That's going on the side of my van,” another viewer said, which we would love to see.

“Would be a badass cover for a special edition copy of Doom,” another viewer said, though we’d need to see the mirroring fixed before that.

And finally, the most metal take we found: “Hell yeah, Castle Grayskull in the back.”

Hell yeah, indeed.
