Early Life

Dr. Victor von Doom is a brilliant scientist from the small European nation of Latveria. He attended college is America were he befriended fellow scientist Reed Richards. His face was scarred in the same experiment that transformed the Fantastic Four. Doom himself had sabotaged the experiment, but he still blamed Richards for the scarring of his face. He crafted a suit of armor and mask to cover his face. Using his Doombots, Doom conquered his home nation of Latveria. Doctor Doom is revealed to have diplomatic immunity as a head of state, which means that the American police cannot place him under arrest.


Doom in one of his experiments his mind gets put into Reed Richards, and vice versa, more is revealed about Doom's life and ruling attitude. Doom (with Richards' mind) is now considerably more polite and respectful of others. Reed also commands the Doombots to destroy themselves as "word of Doom is law", and releases the face mask. Though the viewer is not shown Doom's face, when Reed and Doom return to their proper bodies, Richards tells Doom that Doom's insecurity, in particular about his personal appearance, is his greatest adversary.[1]
