Doctor Doom[src]

The term "Doombot" refers to various series of robots originally created by Doctor Doom. All robots that are now identified as "Doombots" are exact physical and mental replicas of the original Victor von Doom in his armored form. They are designed with psionic disguising circuitry that is capable of fooling low level telepaths into accepting them as the real Dr. Doom. Their advanced A.I. program makes them believe themselves to be the real Doom, except when they are in the presence of Doom or another Doombot.[4] They were created to replace Doom whenever he cannot be present at a situation, or whenever he does not want to risk his own life.


A prototype of Doombot was created before von Doom even went to university. Chased by the Latverian authorities, von Doom built a doppelganger of himself to trick the soldiers. This human-like robot was executed by a firing squad, which only when they heard it speak and analyzed the riddled corpse noticed they had been fooled.[5]

The first known Doombot was used to trick the Fantastic Four into retrieving the Stones of Merlin from Blackbeard. When the quartet return they fight the Doombot and destroy it and realize the truth.[6]

Doom used a similar trick soon afterward to meet with Spider-Man in an attempt to forge an alliance: After summoning Spider-Man to his hidden laboratory with a Spider-Wave Transmitter, Doom sent a robot to negotiate with Spider-Man, foreseen that the interview could go wrong. Indeed, Spider-Man rejected the offer and attacked the robot with his webs, only to see the real Doom reveal himself. Spider-Man escaped Doom, but Doom insisted on tracking Spider-Man again. Doom accidentally kidnapped a kid in disguise, but Spider-Man went to rescue the later and confronted Doom again, who used several devices against the hero. When Spider-Man managed to entangle Doom with a web, the Doombot moved and grabbed Spider-Man by surprise, trapping him in the path of a Disintegrator. Spider-Man's extraordinary strength allowed him to throw the Doombot and make it collide with Doom himself. Doom escaped the laboratory soon afterward when the Fantastic Four arrived.[7]

Originally the term "Doombot" was applied to various different types of robot created by Von Doom, including the series that was later known as Servo-Guards.[2] It was later restricted to his armored duplicate robots, and does not include his look-alike unmasked Victor von Doom robots,[3] though these also stand in for von Doom when he deems it necessary.

A Doombot was also used when Prince Rudolfo and his men raided Castle Doom in an attempted coup. They found themselves surrounded by apparently several doppelgangers of Doom: One of them was a Doombot, broadcasting his vision to Doom, and the others were shimmering holograms. Rudolfo's men identified the solid Doombot, mostly because it was attacking them, and focused their fire on it. Although they destroyed the Doombot, they also fell prey to Doom's Hypno-Probe; and Doom sent his voice through the broken head of the Doombot to mock his prisoners.[8]

Later, Rudolfo staged a second attempt when he heard that Doom had been killed: He successfully impersonated a Doombot, fooling even Doom's close friend Boris.[9]

Doombot from Books of Doom Vol 1 6 001

Unmasked Doombot

When Doctor Doom was deposed and replaced as king of Latveria by the late Rudolfo's brother Zorba Fortunov,[10] and then his mind was trapped in a miniature body in toy city Liddleville by the Puppet Master,[11] his Doombots replaced him and impersonated him several times, while still looking for a way to restore their master to health and power.[12]

With Doom away, the mutant Toad took over Doom's Adirondacks Castle and made an amusement park of it[13] with the help of assassin Arcade. This was insulting to Doom.[14] A Doombot impersonating Doom, A-76,[15] recovered the castle, staffing it with mercenaries and closed the show. He also captured Arcade to demand a satisfaction. Arcade's allies recruited the X-Men to release Arcade. X-Men leader Storm intended to meet with "Doom" to negotiate Arcade's release, but this was just a ploy to distract "Doom" while the remaining X-Men secretly infiltrated to the cells. The Doombot A-76 assumed this and, while meeting with Storm, monitored the cells, sent the armored warriors Doom Squad to stop the X-Men and ensured that Arcade was not in the cell but a guest. The X-Men defeated the Squad, with the last warrior escaping only to face A-76's punishment. Although the Doombot found himself attracted to Storm and vice-versa[14] (an attraction that Doom himself would later feel),[16] when the X-Men assaulted him, he soundly defeated them all with defenses: a Neural Disruptor to knock Colossus down and a Metabolic Transmuter to cryonize Storm as liquid chrome.[14] A-76 then used a robot doppelganger of Storm as a servant while the real Storm - a claustrophobic - unleashed a wild tempest around the castle, with A-76 understanding the danger.[17]

In an attempt to discover more of the X-Men, A-76 imprisoned each of his enemies in a different, specialized cell from which they could leave if they were crafty enough, while A-76 himself monitored it all through a painting/liquid-crystal display screen. Arcade enjoyed the show, also taking a Havana cigar from Doom's supplies and lighting a match on A-76's shoulder armor; A-76 simply reprimanded Arcade for not contemplating the ecological danger posed by Storm.[17] Meanwhile, the X-Men escaped. Wolverine was the first to arrive and attacked A-76 in his private study; soon, Nightcrawler joined him. A-76 fought them, but was grabbed and Wolverine threatened to pierce his face with adamantium claws unless he released Storm. A-76 offered a technology that would indeed release her, but in a spectacular way which would give A-76 a chance to escape Wolverine. This was so, but Storm, wild and unleashed, attacked A-76 with a powerful lightning bolt, draining his armor, and threatened to destroy everything in a godlike whim. A-76 contemplated using his technological genius to confront her, but it was Colossus who, using well-felt words, calmed Storm. Recovered but exhausted, Storm again begged "Doom" to release Arcade. Doom's honor still required satisfaction but, for Storm's sake, A-76 accepted just Arcade's coerced apologies. A-76 even apologized for defending himself against the X-Men and insisted he would like to get to know Storm; the X-Men left not as enemies of Doom.[18]

Several other Doombots started Plan Epsilon, which had been defined by Doom himself. Firstly, one Doombot impersonated Doom[12] and took discreet control of Ambassador Leopold of the Latverian Embassy. Leopold agreed to help "Doom" in his plot to summon the Fantastic Four to the Embassy, where "Doom" intended to destroy them. Ironically, the Fantastic Four intended to deliver Doom's inert body to the Latverians,[19] with the body being a piece of the Doombot's Plan Epsilon. The Doombot and his peers intended to recover the body and take it to a hidden flying vehicle, the Saucer Ship, where they could restore Doom's mind - partly because another Doombot had recovered Doom's miniature body from Liddleville (and crushed the Puppet Master's toy body in the process). With these two pieces, four Doombots zealously restored Doom in the bridge of the Saucer Ship.[20]

Meanwhile, four other Doombots took care of the Embassy situation. After executing Ambassador Leopold for doubting Doom's designs, the Doombots captured the Fantastic Four, separated them in four different cells and confronted each hero individually. The Doombots were soundly defeated but, while fighting, they affected the heroes with Doom's Inhibitor Ray, preventing the heroes from directly attacking Doom. Once Doom took control of the situation, he dismissed the Doombots and personally met the Fantastic Four - not to destroy them, but to recruit them in an attempt to recover the Latverian throne,[12] a task they succeeded at in the next few hours.[20]

Having recovered Latveria, Doom reviewed his Doombots while also attending his foster son and apprentice Kristoff Vernard. Doom noticed A-76's scratched shoulder and discovered that A-76 had not executed Arcade for such an affront as A-76 had believed Doom may have had need of Arcade in the future. Doom, disagreeing on him needing anyone else at all, activated A-76's self-destruct mechanism. The young Vernard was aghast at this.[15]

Doom then launched the alien Tyros the Terrible against the Fantastic Four in New York City. While Tyros confronted the Human Torch and the Thing, Doom himself captured the Invisible Girl onboard his stealth Flying Fortress. Doom sent a Doombot to greet his unwilling guest but, when the Invisible Girl was defiant, the Doombot slapped her. She understood that Doom could never be that crude, thus she was facing a doppelganger robot. She easily destroyed the robot's head - even if it was a robot with a concussive weapon to counteract her force field. Doom then conferred with her via a Communication Sphere.[21] Soon afterward, Doom was believed dead in the ensuing conflict.[22]

Five Doombots, including units A-73 and B-57,[4] were selected to ensure a smooth transition of government, first impersonating Doom as the ruler of Latveria[4] while the Latverian ambassador's dismissed any claims of Doom being dead,[23] and later starting Doom's contingency plan in case of his death. The Doombots were to take Doom's foster son and selected heir, Kristoff Vernard, and submit him to the Memory Transference Machine so that Doom's memories, personality, and skill replaced Vernard's. The Doombots were to identify Vernard as their new Master. However, while assimilating the memory-tapes, Vernard decided he had seen enough and he was to act and take immediate action against the Fantastic Four. He launched a scheme, improving one of Doom's first attempts on the Fantastic Four,[4] but failed to kill them. The Fantastic Four reacted by raiding Doom's Castle, but Vernard -now Doctor Doom II- refused to believe he had failed to kill them, thus he identified the intruders as impersonators, unworthy of his attention although the Doombots tried to convince him otherwise. When the Fantastic Four raided Doom's rooms, the Doombots, having the Master's command, offered no resistance when the Fantastic Four destroyed them, even if -unlike Vernard- they understood that Doom II's plans had failed.[24]

One Doombot kept on impersonating Doom at the Latverian Embassy. The real Doom, trapped in the body of a Norman McArthur, disguised himself as the Invincible Man and launched an attack against the Embassy, purportedly aiming to kill Doom for supposedly abducting his family, with the help of superheroines Invisible Woman, She-Hulk and Wasp. The Invisible Woman sneaked to Doom's office and confronted the Doombot. She discovered the robot's nature as it was far clumsier than Doom, and destroyed it by expanding a Force Field from the robot's innards.[25] Doom recovered the Latverian throne soon afterward while Vernard, still with Doom's brain patterns, languished in the Fantastic Four's cells.[1]

Kristoff Vernard's Rule[]

When Doom kidnapped Mister Fantastic and Invisible Woman's son Franklin Richards and took him to Latveria, the Fantastic Four arranged for Vernard to escape so that he would go back to Latveria with the Fantastic Four secretly on his tail. Vernard went to a secret lair where he recovered his armor and met Doombot B-78. Vernard claimed that a clever Doom impersonator had replicated his brainwaves and, along with B-78, secretly entered the Castle from a catacomb. The Fantastic Four tried to follow him, but Vernard identified the danger and trapped them in the tunnels. Vernard then entered the Castle and recruited all the Doombots, including B-78 and B-16, to attack the so-called impersonator. They raided a room where Doom was tried to appease Mephisto by offering Franklin Richards in exchange for his mother, but the robots and Vernard interrupted the scene. While Doom and Vernard fought, the robots stopped: They could not identify who was the real Doom, as their programming as not prepared for this. When the Fantastic Four entered the fray, the Doombots attacked them, identify Mister Fantastic as the primary foe, but they were unable to stop them. In the end, the Human Torch held the Doombots at bay, and the night ended with Doom unable to rescue his mother. Speaking of this event, Doom recognized having failed, and the robots decided that admitting a failure was so unlike Doom that this one should be the impersonator. Doom destroyed the Doombots in the room, but he fled away as he could not confront all the robots in the castle. Vernard took over Latveria, still impersonating Doom. During that night, Vernard also had decided that his Doombots, called "B-series", should change their appearance to replicate his sleek armor, as soon as possible.[1]

During the Acts of Vengeance event, Doom was approached by other supervillains with the intent of forming a federation to defeat several superheroes at once by exchanging their usual opponents. Doom disregarded this plan, as he believed no other man could ever defeat the Fantastic Four, and focused on recovering Latveria from Vernard's hands. He nonetheless assigned one or more Doombots to impersonate him so that the other villains would believe Doom was helping them; however, Doom's plots for these "Acts of Vengeance" were whimsical and unimportant for him, little more than a hobby. One Doombot even revealed these details to the Fantastic Four when they found it - as Doom had expected - in an Albany hideout.[26]

Doombot from Silver Surfer Vol 3 107 001

Doctor Doom then sent one Doombot in a so-called "Doom-ship" to find the Silver Surfer and steal his power. Doom had realized that his own human body was unable to store the Power Cosmic, thus he sent a doppelganger in his stead.[27] The Surfer, who was suffering a faith crisis at the time, agreed to give Doom his power if he helped the population of dying planet Tanus;[28] the Doombot, carefully choosing his words, destroyed the planet to fulfill his vow. The Surfer, powerless although still chromed, was imprisoned by the Doombot's two alien guards. The Doombot then noticed that, while it had the Power Cosmic, it could not control the Surfer's board. The Surfer refused to help him and even attacked him, succeeding at breaking his mask, but being utterly defeated. The Doombot drunk with power, destroyed his own ship, as he no longer needed it to move in space; his guards and the Surfer were to suffer death by exposure.[27] Satisfied, the Doombot steered to Earth,[29] where it intended to use its newfound power to attack Mr. Fantastic, the Fantastic Four -unaware of the then-current status of the team- and probably even Doom himself, as the Doombot had grown ambitious with power.[27] The Surfer was however rescued by his superpowered friend Legacy, and then the Surfer tracked the Doombot and destroyed it to recover his cosmic power, just a few astronomical units from Earth.[29]

Later Events[]

One particular Doombot even replaced the real Doom ruling Latveria temporarily. That unit became more humanlike than the others, to the point of Doom taking a personal liking to it and refusing to destroy it. This robot was interviewed by a female journalist, to whom it reported Doom's origins and rise to power. After that encounter, Doom's servant Boris ensured that the woman was imprisoned so that she could not use that intel on Doom.[30]

Doom recently has begun using Doombots openly as attack robots akin to his Servo-Guards, rather than as secret stand-ins complete with non human voices, defeating their original purpose of being secret stand-ins.[citation needed]

The monarch of Symkaria; Countess Karkov with the help of Chameleon and Hitman, took control of the Doombots and used them to attack New York. Doom was able to take back control, but the damage had already been done as everyone now saw him as a tyrannical criminal, which forced Doom to dismantle the Doombots.[31]



Robotic construction providing them an armor and general immunity to mental, emotional, and illusion attacks - although they are susceptible to machinery-affecting and psionic attacks that can disrupt their logic functions.

  • Concussive Weapon: Some Doombots had an unidentified concussive weapon that allowed them to physically hit the Invisible Girl even if she tried to protect herself with a force field.[21]
  • Energy Projection: Just like Doctor Doom's armor, most Doombots can fire blasts of energy from their gauntlets and faceplates.
  • Force Lightning: All the Doombots can shoot lightning from their gauntlets similar to Doom's attack.
  • Jetpack: All the Doombots have jet packs allowing them flight.
  • Parabolic Hearing Aids: Some Doombots, specially fighting Doombots, have been seen using this device to detect unusual frequencies and very weak sounds.
  • Self-Repair: Small mechanic limbs and tools in the head of every Doombot allow them to reconstruct the rest of the body. This allows the robot to infiltrate enemy fortresses: The pieces are sent through a different way, and the head builds the body in minutes.
  • Electricity Discharge: Each Fighting Doombot can generate an electric shock that can only be used at point-blank range. Enemies are usually knocked down with this attack.
  • Other weapons: Fighting Doombots have other weapons attached such as missile launchers, sleeping gas, firearms, etc.
  • Infrared Scanner: This allows Doombots to detect heat sources, including invisible humans.[12] Only fighting Doombots have been seen using this.
Doombot, Vision (Earth-616) from Avengers Vol 1 333

Self-assembly unit

  • Self-Assembly: Doctor Doom developed an autonomous assemblage unit to build Doombots if the pieces were available, even if Doom himself was unable to be there. This unit doubled as the head of a Doombot.[32]
  • Self-Destruct: Doombots self-destruct whenever they are in risk of being captured or defeated, or even at Doom's whim. When a Diplomat Doombot allowed Arcade to strike a match on that Doombot and was not killed for that affront. The explosion damaged nearby enemies.[citation needed]
  • Brainscan: Doombots recognize Doom only via his brainscan - so they could not distinguish the original Doom from Kristoff Vernard, who had been brainwashed to share Doom's brain pattern.[1]
  • Different Models: At present it is used for only two different models: the "Fighting" and "Diplomat" classes. Both of them have the same base A.I. and systems, differing only in their primary classification. All of the types formerly included are now given different names, such as Servo-Guards.
    • Combat/Fighting Doombots are enhanced with super strength and reinforced for direct combat, even being able to hold their own temporarily with Ben Grimm in his Thing form. Doom sends a fighting Doombot whenever he considers a fight probably, because they use heavier weaponry, and sometimes even additional weapon systems. Most of these combat units are far too strong to make enemies think they are fighting the real human non-enhanced Doom.
    • Diplomat Doombots have a higher intelligence and normal armor levels, and lack the strength and reinforcement of the fighting Doombots. Diplomats are used in diplomatic meetings such as the United Nations and when dealing and/or seducing with potential allies such as the X-Men's Storm.[33][15]
      • Doom has at least 10 Diplomat and 50 Fighter Doombots at any given moment.
    • Mechadoom's "Doom Patrol": Mechadoom, an artificially-intelligent prototype Doombot created by Kristoff Vernard with research that Victor von Doom considered too dangerous for that purpose, started his own Doombot production line in a base under New York City, attempting to improve their AI and eventually his own (though he failed at that).[34] His Doombots, less armored than the traditional model, had a force field which was weaker than the standard Doombots, and it interfered with other Doombots of the same model when they were too close, so, when an active Doombot approached too much to another one, a safety feature was developed to switch them off. They were also vulnerable to Vision's phasing attack. Reed Richards had access to the remains of one of these Doombots and immediately noticed that it was not von Doom's traditional design. Knowing that a conflict with these Doombots was imminent, Richards also developed a jamming device that made these Doombots slower and clumsier. Many of these Doombots were destroyed when the Fantastic Four and several X-Men raided Mechadoom's base with some allies; during that battle, Deathlok convinced Mechadoom to stop his Doombots (whom Deathlok nicknamed "Doom Patrol"). Mechadoom was killed soon afterward, and his design was abandoned.[35]


Leadership: Only to Latverians and other A.I.-produced skills to emulate the real Doom.

The Doombots know Doom's story, having access to Doom's memories as programmed by himself so that they could impersonate him properly.[30]

Strength level[]

Combat/Fighting Doombots have superhuman strength comparable to Ben Grimm (85) though below Grimm's regular Thing form full strength level. Diplomat Doombots are usually far weaker that their fighting counterparts at the same level of the real human unenhanced Von Doom to complete their disguise.


Doombots can be made ineffective if their master does not give them commands to act on their own if in the presence of their master. Doombots also have the same problems that the real Doom armor has, including failure on power depletion, super energy attacks, etc. Plus, various mechanical ones, such as super EMP attacks that can disrupt their circuitry, though most do not have access to such weaponry.

One single Doombot was able to overcome this programming, believing to be the real Doom in presence of both other Doombots and the real Doom (the later in little-used Promethium armor); this achievement had not been planned by Doom while building it.[36]

The Doombots origins are similar to that of their Earth-616 counterparts. In recent history, when Reed Richards took over Doctor Doom's Castle and took on the monarch's identity, he programmed the Doombots to be loyal to him, and to continue posing as Doom so that the people of Latveria would not be any wiser. The Doombots would defend Castle Doom, but were usually ineffective when larger groups, such as the Church of Immortus, and Tong of Creel attacked the castle.[42]

Doctor Doom's Armor, Doombot, Victor von Doom (Earth-TRN564) from Deeds of Doom

Deeds of Doom (Earth-TRN564)[]

In Earth-TRN564, like in Earth-616,[54] Doctor Doom used robotic doppelgangers of himself with advanced artificial intelligence to impersonate and behave like him, delegating in them a number of minor tasks. The Doombots were programmed to behave like Doctor Doom and, in fact, believed themselves to be Doom himself, unless Doom or other Doombots were present. There were two main variants of Doombots: the combat Doombot and the diplomatic Doombot, each with its own specialty.[55] Doom kept a cadre of at least twenty Doombots at his main base and home, Castle Doom in Latveria. The Doombots were, however, not allowed to use some very specific possessions of Doom such as his Promethium Armor.[54]

Doom assigned several diplomatic Doombots to represent him in a secret, subterranean lair under an American city, where genius roboticist Wolfgang Kriegslieber was building the giant pacifier robot Doomsman III. Only one Doombot was active at a given time, but should that one be destroyed, the next one was immediately activated. If the Doombot captured any superpowered human, it had a Power Transference Machine to feed the prisoner's powers to the Doomsman. [54]

Kriegslieber betrayed Doom, intent on stealing the Doombot for the Darkholders cult. Doom suspected this and did not act immediately, waiting for the exact moment to retaliate the Darkholders for maximum effect. He nonetheless kept an eye on Kriegslieber's base. However, when some superheroes discovered and raided the base, truthfully accusing Doom and his minions of several crimes, the Doombot confronted the heroes. Kriegslieber then revealed his true colors and teleported away with the inactive Doomsman.[54]

The Doombot, pretending to be Doom, accused the heroes of meddling and unleashing a great evil in the world. The Doombot explained that the Darkholders had the means to summon the evil god Chthon and make it possess the robot, and the reasons to send the Doomsman to destroy Doomstadt to get revenge on Doom. The Doombot then recruited the heroes to help defeat the Doomsman and they all traveled to Castle Doom in a Saucer Ship.[54]

Once there, meeting with more Doombots and Doom himself, the Doombot turned over the floor to his master, who welcomed the heroes. Soon afterward, when the Doomsman attacked Doomstadt, a Doombot (either a different one or the same one) interrupted Doom to notify him about that. The heroes then went to Doomstadt and ultimately defeated the Doomsman.[54]

Doombot, Jim Hammond, Vision (Earth-TRN564) from Deeds of Doom

Doombot fighting Vision and the Torch

A diplomatic Doombot approached the Latverian Embassy in New York City in a black limousine, which was unexpectedly attacked and destroyed by the android Human Torch. The Doombot survived and returned fire, receiving quick reinforcements from the Embassy in the form of six Warrior Robots. The Torch was immediately helped by two other superheroes, Deathlok and the Vision (the three of them secretly mind-controlled by Doom's enemy Andro, Lord of Androids); and the embassy replied by sending six more Warrior Robots. A number of independent superheroes joined the fray while Doctor Doom himself monitored the event from the Embassy, ready to send more Doombots if required. [54]

Andro captured a Doombot, removed its self-destruction system (and was probably able to use it), and altered its programming, accidentally giving it a personality - a heroic one, to top it. The Doombot escaped Andro's secret lair, chased by Andro's andromite minions, and humbly joined a superhero team for help. During the battle, the real Doom appeared with a dozen of Warrior Robots to defy the defective Doombot: It had become a threat and it may fall into the wrong hands, who'd study it for valuable information. The Doombot intended to continue existing.[54]

Doom eventually launched an attack against Andro's lair, supported by several heroes and robots. It is unclear whether Doom himself or a Doombot went with the party; in any case, the purported Doom there focused its attacks on Andro. While Andro's plan was stalled, Andro himself managed to escape.[54]

Doombot from Namor Conquered Shores Vol 1 3 001

Many years after Earth was devastated by the Kree and Doctor Doom was killed by Kree assassins, Frankenstein's Monster took control of the Doombots that remained in the ruins of Castle Doom to protect a group of human survivors. Despite Doom being dead for many years, the Doombots still recognized allies of Doom, including the Sub-Mariner, and allowed Namor and Luke Cage to explore Castle Doom in search for the Human Torch. When Frankenstein's Monster thought Namor was going to hurt the humans under his protection, he ordered the Doombots to attack Namor and Cage. Eventually, Namor and Cage made peace with the Monster, and the Monster ordered the Doombots to halt their attack.[57]
