-- Doctor Doom src

When a plague turned the world's population into cannibals, Doctor Doom was one of the many who succumbed to it. However, Doom was able to hold his intelligence long enough to craft the Doomstones, a gem infused with his own brand of science and alchemy, which would allow its infected wearer to retain their memories and intelligence. He even made sure to give one to every citizen in Latveria.[1]

When the plague took full control of New York City, Doom fooled the Avengers into thinking the Doomstones would cure them and offered to help them if they named him Emperor of the World. Despite their initial reluctance, they all agreed to his terms and gave him the Baxter Building as his headquarters.[2]

Doom gave everyone in New York a Doomstone to wear, which would turn red if someone succumbed to the infection. Then, he had several Avengers set up a magnetic fence around New York to keep more infected from coming in. However, Hawkeye was still highly distrustful of Doom. Eventually, he stumbled on Doom as he was about to eat Mystique.[3]

Doom told Hawkeye the truth and activated everyone's Doomstone, forcing every Avenger to become a cannibal aside from Hawkeye and a few others. With New York his, Hawkeye confronted him. In th end, Doom was killed when Hawkeye hit him in the head with an arrow tipped with one of Wolverine's claws.[1]
