"Ms. Van Dyne, I am not some common criminal that can be distracted by your prattling. You are nothing to Doom. And your pathetic attempts to play feeble mindgames with me amount to exactly less than nothing. So please, stop embarrassing yourself."
--Dr. Doom, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Doctor Victor Von Doom is a Marvel comics villain, ruler of Latveria, and arch-enemy of the Fantastic Four. Originally a boy from a Romani family, he witnessed his mother's death at the hands of some demons she had summoned to fight Latverian soldiers. Swearing revenge, he began to master magic and technology. Eventually, he traveled to America to study some more, and that is where he met (and eventually became foes with) Reed Richards.
Due to an incident involving constructing a portal to Hell to resurrect his mother, Doom blamed Richards for the incident for causing the scars on his face. He constructed a suit of metal armor and became the cloaked tyrant scientist known today. He considers himself to be the smartest man on Earth and shows signs of politeness to his enemies. The dictator represents the sins of pride, ambition, wrath, and envy.
Doom appears in various Marvel-related media, such as movies, TV shows, and video games. Among one of his most famous appearances is in the Marvel vs. Capcom series of fighting games, where he is a playable character.
