** Because attempting things like that has worked so well so far. Besides, even if he succeeded, doesn't he know that would be pointless? I'm sure Dr. Doom is GenreSavvy enough to know that DeathIsCheap for major heroes, so why even bother when he knows Richards has returned from death in the past.

Added DiffLines:

** There's also the legal standpoint: DiplomaticImmunity is not handed out by the United Nations, but rather recognized by individual states. The only one who could revoke Doom's diplomatic immunity is Doom himself (as the ruler of the country of Latveria), which is not only unlikely but a legal tautology. (Individuals may not waive their own immunity, you see -- a fact that helps keep a lot of diplomats out of prison.)

** MostWritersAreMale. Ultimate Invisible Woman was a strong female character, and a common mistake in writing a Strong Female is to simply make her rude and abusive to all the male characters to make her appear 'strong.'

** Back in the day, Dr. Donald Blake was more than just Thor's mortal identity. He was one of the premiere medical minds and top surgeons of the M.U. Doom recruited Blake for a face-fixing consultation. Upon seeing Doom's face, Blake recoiled in horror and stated unequivocally, "There is nothing medical science can do! Nothing!!"

* I know Dr. Doom is arrogant and all, but couldn't Doom Bots get him out of legal trouble? If you can create robot versions of yourself, would you lie and blame your robots for your past crimes? It's not farfetched for robots to turn against their masters in the marvel universe. Ultron and Hank Pym are an example of this.

** Maybe that's ''why'' his business was a muli-billion doller company, because he invented artificial gravity. As for the financial problem, that was brought on by the fact he invested tons of money in the project so he could take advantage of Reed to triple his money, and when it failed lost almost all of his money. It doesn't matter if someone invents something to completely revolutionize the world and make billions, if they then waste that money, it's gone, forever. He could sell it to another company, but that would lead to losing the project as well.

** It happened when the Psycho-Man turned her into Malice, and she taught the rest of the four (Ben was replaced by She-Hulk at the time) [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower that invisibility powers aren't a joke by nearly killing them, and thinking of rather imaginative ways to do it]]. She also did...something to Psycho-Man when she came out of his control. It was this encounter that she became the Invisible ''Woman'', instead of the "Invisible Girl".


Added DiffLines:

*** Actually he does have to kill a planet before eating it sometimes. The metaphor still counts as Galactus is encountering a planet that doesn't want to be eaten, and can has the capability to do something about it.

* So, the writers say stuff about Doom being 2nd to Reed in science, but is really? Doom seems to be more physics breaking machines than Reed does.

* I'm not bashing Dr. Doom, but do Doombots make him look lazy and cowardice at times? Don't get me wrong, Doom is one of my favorite villains, but writers rely on the bots too much. I can understand using decoys and fakes for dangerous missions, but using them in regular fights? It also seems a little arrogant for a writer to do that. Like, he doesn't want his favorite villain to lose. They can't make Doom fight his own battles?
