At some point in his life, the aging Victor von Doom began to go senile. His pride never allowed him to believe that he could lose his grip, and he had long since killed anyone who might have told him, so he grew ever more addled and eventually lost all his power, wealth, and glory without ever realizing it.

He resided in an abandoned hotel in Detroit, cared for by a busted old robot. With his moments of lucidity becoming ever fewer, he spent most of his days in a fantasy world. Despite his fall from grace and his deteriorating mind, he remained his era's foremost expert on time travel, and Layla Miller, Multiple Man, and Ruby Summers sought him out for help in uncovering a mystery regarding mutants vanishing from thin air.

Doom agreed to help them and returned with them to Atlantic City. Doom solved the problem by bringing Cortex, who had been killing the ancestors of the members of the Summers Rebellion, into the past. Doom betrayed them however and took control of both Cyclops and Cortex, whom he ordered to kill all the mutants. Ruby managed to incapacitate her father, while Doom made his escape and Fitzroy killed Cortex.[citation needed]
