* GreenLanternRing: Her force-fields act as this. Basically, she's become an Invisible Lantern over the years, being able to shape her invisible forcefields into any sort of constructs she wants but with the added advantage that her enemies can't see them.



* MostCommonSuperPower: For a time during the [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks mid-90s]], the Invisible Woman wore a skimpy costume with a cut-out "4" on her cleavage.

* MostCommonSuperPower: For a time during the [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks mid-90s]], the Invisible Woman wore a skimpy costume with a cut-out "4" on her cleavage. This was before writers and editors realized that they didn't have to dress Sue up in a slinky costume to make her sexy she was already a MILF.

* BlessedWithSuck

to:

* BlessedWithSuckBlessedWithSuck: While most of the Fantastic Four embraces their powers, the Thing genuinely believes that his superpower is a curse, and who can blame him? Even though he possesses super strength and near invulnerability, it doesn't change the fact that he's been turned into a hideous rock monster that scares the shit out of anybody who sees him, and destroys his chances of living a normal life. He was also forced to quit his job as a test pilot because he was too big and heavy to fit in a plane. Oh yeah, and did we mention that he was turned into a ''hideous rock monster''?
** As Reed said once, "He has his good days and his bad." Ben will never really be at peace with his monstrous form. For every writer who gives him a break from the angst, there's one who brings it back because it's so central to his character. Mark Waid's recent run is a good example of the latter.



* IJustWantToBeNormal

to:

* IJustWantToBeNormalIJustWantToBeNormal: He is the poster boy for this trope. Despite his complaints about being an orange rock monster, every time he's been "cured", he finds a reason to become The Thing again. He actually enjoys being the FF's strong man and "The Idol of Millions", but just wishes he could walk down the street without being stared at.
** Which by this point is probably more because of the whole "Idol of Millions" thing than because of his appearance, so he's got nothing to complain about. Apart from having non-reinforced floors give way under him, that is.

Reed Richards' RivalTurnedEvil, and the Fantastic Four's most best-known ArchEnemy. Now has [[SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom his own page]].

* AffablyEvil: May try to destroy you, but still knows how to treat a guest.
* ArchEnemy: To the Fantastic Four as a whole, but Reed Richards in particular due to being his RivalTurnedEvil.
* BigBad: One of Marvel's most iconic. Even though he usually is considered the Fantastic Four's nemesis, he has been fighting many other superheroes, including, amongst others, the Avengers, and is one of the few human villains in the Marvel Universe to be a major threat.
* BigGood: What he aims to be for Earth, considering the only non-crapsack future for Earth is one with him in control.
* {{Badass}}: By far one of the most powerful and skilled villains in the Marvel Universe.
* BreakoutVillain: Started out merely as the Fantastic Four's nemesis, but the character became so popular he now one of the major candidates for the role of BigBad in ''the entire'' Marvel Universe.
* DiplomaticImpunity: One of the major reasons he is so hard to deal with; being the legitimate ruler of Latveria, he cannot be arrested for his crimes without causing a diplomatic incident.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Reed didn't even do what Doom blames him for. This has not stopped Doom from repeatedly trying to kill/destroy/crush/annihilate/insert grandiose adjective here Reed and his entire family in various over-the-top ways on numerous occasions in vengeance.
* EmperorScientist
* EnemyMine: Is currently a member of the Freedom Foundation.
* EvilOverlord: A rare present-day version of the trope.
* LargeHam: TREMBLE WITH FEAR BEFORE DOOM'S TITANIC MONOLOGUES!
* MinorInjuryOverreaction: The accident he blames Richards for was actually caused by the demon Mephisto, who merely gave him a long, thin scar by scratching his face. He's not exaggerating ''now'', though, since when he first put on his armour it was molten hot, because he didn't wait for it to cool, so underneath he's genuinelly covered head to toe in third degree burns.
* NinjaPirateRobotZombie: Possibly one of the most extreme cases of this trope ever; he is a SorcerousOverlord EmperorScientist in a PoweredArmor, the legitimate ruler of a country in a modern setting, has invented and on several occasions used TimeTravel, and has been in possession of almost ''every'' form of power in [[FantasyKitchenSink the Marvel Universe]] at some point.
* NobleDemon: DependingOnTheWriter, but he usually is depicted as having redeeming qualities and a sense of honor. Most notably, a lot of stories depict him as a genuinely good ruler, who is benevolent to the inhabitants of Latveria as long as they don't question his authority. And even in versions where he ''is'' more of a dictator, he is still way nicer than any ruthless dictator who would steal his throne.
* NoMisterBondIExpectYouToDine: The page image, natch.
* SorcerousOverlord: Considered something around the third most skilled wizard in the Marvel Universe, ComicBook/DoctorStrange being one of the few to outrank him.
* TheRival: Reed Richards is #1.
* ThirdPersonPerson: They know to call him Doom, because that is what he constantly calls himself.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: DependingOnTheWriter, but he usually wants to conquer the world because he genuinely believes that he is better fitted than the current rulers to make it a better place.

Doom was introduced by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby in ''The Fantastic Four Four'' #5 (July, 1962) as the ArchEnemy of the ComicBook/FantasticFour. Doom was born in the FictionalCountry of [[{{Ruritania}} Latveria]], the son of UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} witch Cynthia Von Doom. When Cynthia was killed by the demons she had summoned to fight Latverian soldiers, Doom swore revenge. The death of his father, medicine man Werner, caused by the dictator of Latveria only known as the Baron, only added fuel to Doom's desire for revenge.

After discovering his mother's occult instruments, Doom began to master both magic and technology to seek that revenge, amusing himself by leading the Latverian government on
a whole, but merry chase while thwarting their attempts to stop him. When word of his exploits inevitably reached the United States, Doom gained the opportunity to study in America. There, Doom had a fateful meeting with Reed Richards in particular due to being his RivalTurnedEvil.
* BigBad: One of Marvel's most iconic. Even though he usually is considered the Fantastic Four's nemesis, he has been fighting many other superheroes, including, amongst others, the Avengers, and is
Richards, one of the few human villains in men on the Marvel Universe planet whose intelligence could even approach Doom's, to be a major threat.
* BigGood: What
whom he aims grew an immediate dislike. Wishing to be for Earth, considering the only non-crapsack future for Earth is one resurrect his dead mother, Doom constructed a portal to Hell intended to communicate with him in control.

Expelled from
the most extreme cases university after the accident, Doom traveled the world until he collapsed on a Tibetan mountainside. Rescued by monks from a mysterious order, Victor quickly mastered the monks' secret disciplines, as well as metallurgy. Doom then forged himself a suit of this trope ever; he is a SorcerousOverlord EmperorScientist in a PoweredArmor, the legitimate ruler of complete with a country in a modern setting, scowling mask, which he has invented and on several occasions used TimeTravel, (with some modifications) since that day, and took the name Doctor Doom. He succeeded in taking over Latveria, and has been in possession since ruled it with an iron fist. Doom's path was soon to once again cross that of almost ''every'' form of power in [[FantasyKitchenSink the Marvel Universe]] at some point.

** Reed even gave this a great deal of thought during the first Secret War storyline, musing about how odd it was that the Beyonder considered Galactus "evil" and grouped him in with all the other villains. Reed knew that Galactus was so far beyond good or evil that the concepts simply didn't apply. He regarded Galactus as a force of nature, comparable to an earthquake or a hurricane, which also cannot be judged as good or evil.

** Seriously, you do ''not'' want to fuck with this guy. During the prologue to Annihilation, he was on an alien planet and killed a village leader who'd executed his own daughter. When it was pointed to him what the daughter had done (fell in love with a member of an enemy tribe), and the leader was perfectly within his rights under their laws to execute her, he replied that he what she had done was not against ''Kree'' law. He was pretty intense during this scene, as the whole incident really pissed him off.
