DOOM, born [[AlliterativeName Daniel Dumile]], had some success as a rapper in the early '90s in his group KMD under the name Zev Love X. However, the [[DeathByOriginStory tragic loss of his brother in a car accident]], along with the shelving of KMD's album ''Black Bastards'' for its ContemptibleCover in 1994 caused him to retreat from the hip-hop world and sink into a deep depression. He eventually became homeless on the streets of New York; in interviews, he describes himself in this period as "recovering from his wounds" and swearing revenge "against the industry that so badly deformed him." If this sounds like a SuperVillain [[SuperHeroOrigin origin story]], well, the similarity didn't escape him either. When he recovered and returned to the world of hip-hop he adopted the identity of MF DOOM, an {{Expy}} of the ComicBook/FantasticFour villain SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom. DOOM has consistently worn a CoolMask since he returned to performing; it is nearly impossible to find pictures of him from after 1998 or so in which he shows his face.
