Victor von Doom was born a gypsy in the Balkan kingdom of Latveria, his mother was killed due to a bargain with Mephisto gone wrong. He attended college where he met Reed Richards, and Doom became obsessed with developing a machine that could project the astral form of a being into other dimensions, seeing it as a way to free his mother from Mephisto's clutches. Reed pointed out a flaw in Doom's calculations, but Doom arrogantly ignored his warnings, feeling Reed was trying to upstage him. The machine exploded, scarring Victor's face.
Disgraced and bitter, Doom traveled the world until he came upon a small Tibetan village of monks who assisted him in creating a suit of armor. He returned to his homeland of Latveria to overthrow the leader and declare himself king. He then began to use his country's resources in order to further his plans of world domination, becoming one of the most powerful threats to S.H.I.E.L.D. and the civilized world.
Doom was notably absent when supervillains lurking for the Isotope-8 first appeared, which worried everyone involved in global security.

The Empire State was surrounded by Servo Guards. Doom used Madame Masque and Crimson Cowl as distractions until he revealed himself in order to express his plans to make of the landmark building the new "Doomlabs". Mr. Fantastic aided the Alliance in their fight against Doom, but he soon disappeared after the battle begun.
After the Alliance fought numerous organizations such as The Hand, Maggia and Hydra working together retrieving different magical artifacts and the body of the Red Skull, numerous Servo Guards were established all around Bryant Park. Doctor Doom announced the different alliances between evil organizations formed the Syndicate, with the aim of creating a new world using the unprecedented powers of Isotope-8. The Thing fought Victor, but he disappeared after being defeated.
After the leaders of each fraction of the Syndicate fought the Alliance, Doctor Doom revealed the Syndicate to had been only a diversion for his true plans, and that S.H.I.E.L.D. made Doom the favor to eliminate anyone who could've been his rival. Numerous Servo Guards and Doombots marched out of the Latverian Embassy, and Mr. Fantastic was sent to fight Doctor Doom again, but he soon headed back to the Embassy.
