** 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** 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.

* 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?

* Yeah... Why has nobody revoked [[DiplomaticImpunity Dr. Doom's diplomatic immunity]]? Or made an attempt to invade Latveria and remove him from power? I know there's the excuse, DependingOnTheWriter, that Doom is a great leader and takes care of his own people, but the man is constantly attempting to kill certain private American citizens and openly conspires to conquor the world. There's no arguing it- the man makes long, hammy speeches about these things. The UN isn't the least bit bothered about granting this man diplomatic immunity even after he's used it to commit crimes while avoiding arrest on foreign soil multiple times? SHIELD never sits down and decides to invade Latveria to arrest Doom? Reed Richards can't just go to both groups and ask them to just do this as a favor for all those times he and his family fought off Galactus?

* In ''Rise of the Silver Surfer'', the ComicBook/SilverSurfer {{technobabble}}s Johnny's powers, and he swaps powers with his teammates. At the climax of the film, Johnny [[AllYourPowersCombined combines all of the Fantastic Four's powers]] to take on DoctorDoom. Doctor Doom, who, in the films, ''[[MassSuperEmpoweringEvent got powers in the same accident that created the Fantastic Four]]''. Why doesn't Johnny trade his full set for Doom's ShockAndAwe powers?

* The page image over on TookALevelInBadass ...Great, yea, we know Sue Storm isn't useless and is indeed the most dangerous member of the FF. But when did that happen? I don't recall the last time she fought Magneto, and the only time I know of her fighting RedHulk was as part of a team that still nearly got squashed(back in his VillainSue days). Her taking Loki is laughable at best(same goes for anyone else in the FF), and I don't remember hearing about that, either. Can't recognize anyone else in the pile up at first glance. Was that just a promotional image, fan art, or did that actually happen?

** [[TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes He was also the only one besides Nick Fury who didn't need someone to scream "hey, we're being invaded by Skrulls" in his face, while Reed was actually sleeping with one.]]

** At one point they might have been equals, and in some ways they still are. Where they differ in their specialties: Doom can build time machines and clunky death machines, while Reed opens portals to other dimensions and sophisticated super-computers. What Doom dosen't have is Reed's one advantage, that being the fact that his brain is just as flexible as the rest of his body, and thus allowing it adapt when he's thinking on a problem. What Reed dosen't have is Doom's ruthlessness and background in the mystic arts.

** Given that anybody with that body temperature should already have ''died'' about 70 degrees ago, and Johnny wasn't even remotely showing symptoms of a ''mild'' fever, she very likely jumped to the conclusion that the thermometer was broke.
