Doctor Doom is a supervillain in the Marvel Universe. Originating as the arch-nemesis of the Fantastic Four, he soon became a threat to every superhero in the Marvel Universe.
Doom has frequently appeared as a villain and boss in various Marvel games, and is playable in the Marvel vs. Capcom series.
Victor Von Doom was the son of gypsies. A wealthy baron demanded that his father cure the baron's wife of a disease, when he could not, he was murdered. It was after this tragic event that young Victor discovered his mother was a witch.
He studied magic and technology and soon developed a brilliant mind, which he used to take revenge on the baron. He was later given a chance to attend college in New York City. It was there that he met Reed Richards (later Mr. Fantastic), a fellow genius. While Von Doom was developing a device to communicate with his dead mother, Reed tried to advise him of a miscalculation, which he ignored. When he tried to activate the device, it caused an explosion that scarred his face and led to his expulsion. Von Doom then traveled the world, ending up in Tibet, where he was taken in by a clan of monks. Once he had mastered their teachings, the monks created a suit of armor for Von Doom. He put on the face mask while it was still hot from the forge, scarring his face further. He then swore revenge on Reed Richards, and became the supervillain Doctor Doom.
