Real name: Victor Von Doom
6 ft. 2 in.
Von Doom was raised by gypsies in a small European county called Latveria.
He lost both of his parents at a very young age. Swearing revenge, Victor
began to increase both his scientific and mystical knowledge ( his mother
was a witch who made a pact with the Devil to save her family ) with such
determination that he was given a full scholarship to Empire State
University. It was at ESU that Victor met Reed Richards and Ben Grimm, and
where he started his extra dimensional research ( to build a machine to
save his mother’s soul ) . Doom's vanity prevented him from adjusting
the schematics to one of his experiments, and the end result was an
explosion that scarred Victor for life. Expelled from school, Victor began
to travel the world, met Dr Strange’s Master but this one refused to
teach him his knowledge sensing that Victor may use it for his own goals.
Victor continued his travel until he stumbled upon a village of Tibetan
monks who trained him and crafted him a suit of body armor, complete with
a metal mask. Victor applied the mask on his face before it was completely
cooled down and took the identity of Dr Doom. He soon returned to Latveria,
overthrew the government and crowned himself King. Ruling with an iron
fist, Doom made Latveria a very rich
and healthy nation and began his plans of world domination.
his quests Dr Doom finally saved his mother’s soul from Mephisto himself
with the Help of Dr Strange.
an apparently legitimate descendant of the previous king of Latveria
overthrew him and became the new monarch. Doom had to ask the Fantastic
Four for help and they amazingly agreed, apparently believing that having
Doom out of his throne was a worse option. During the conflict, Doom's
robots killed the parents of a little boy by accident and Doom adopted him.
His original plan was to make him his inheritor. However, when Dr doom was
presumed dead , his robots took the kid “Kristoff and imprinted him with
Doom's brain patterns, Kristoff decided then that he was the original Doom
and tried to exterminate the real one believing him a pretender. Once
more, Doom had to fight for his throne.
The Fantastic Four have also asked for Doom's help in occasions, like when
Kitty Pride started to lose corporeity and Reed Richards was unable to
stop the process. But Doom did. Also the Fantastic Four were forced to
trust him once more when Susan became
pregnant again. Because of her irradiated cells, she had already
miscarried once. This time, though, Sue would also die and Reed could not
prevent this from happening. Johnny Storm decided then to go to Doom and
ask for help. Proving once more that he was smarter than Reed, , Doom
helped Sue give birth to a baby girl and, when asked for whatever he
wanted in exchange for his help, he simply asked them to name the girl
Valeria after his lost love. Thus, Doom became her godfather.
Doom also saved and ruled the alternative earth created after Onslaught ,
after all the heroes went back to the original earth.
the future ( 2099 to be precise ) Doom is the only character from the
Marvel Universe to have survived the “ Dawn of the heroes”. He stayed
alive through his science knowledge. After being brainwashed by his lover,
Doom regained the throne of Latveria then invaded the USA and declared
himself President of the United States.
