** Being no stranger to FetishFuel either, I also was also shown intending to enslave Emma Frost and the female avatar of that snake, Loki.

* DestructiveSaviour: Know that Doom has saved all existence from the beings known as the Beyonders... albeit, Doom admits, at a high cost. Much of the multiverse was laid to waste by Doom's efforts, and that was before Doom's attempt at finishing off the creatures destroyed almost all the universes left standing.



* PetTheDog: Master artist Creator/JackKirby (the only artist Doom deemed worthy to paint his royal portrait) once painted a poster depicting Captain America, Spider-Man and Thor giving toys to impoverished children. However, it has surfaced that the original sketch for the poster depicted Doom himself, dispensing toys alongside the others. Why do you seem surprised? Doom is, above all, a kind and generous man of the people and I will carve out the tongue of any who say otherwise.

** When the Inhuman royal family were cast out from their people, seeking a place to call home on Earth, they were rejected by all the nations of Earth... save, of course, Latveria, whose borders are open to all peoples. Doom personally appeared at the United Nations to tell all the world of this.

* ScarsAreForever: They're not. [[SincerityMode I could heal the scars on my face if I wanted to]], but I keep them as a reminder of my vendetta against Richards. Also applies in Marvel2099, in which my face initially healed (done to build a mystery as to whether or not I'm the real Doom [[spoiler: of course I am, and my face being healed is later explained]]) before being marred again by Tyger Wyld, and I again turn down the option of repairing the damage again to remind myself of what he did to me.

* TomatoInTheMirror: In the Marvel2099, though ultimately subverted. It's implied initially that I might not be the real Doom, given I don't recall how I ended up in the future and my face was healed when I first appeared [[spoiler: but that was later explained that I am really Doom, and what happened with my memories was a trick to mess with me.]]

The die had been cast! Doom sought mastery of both magic and technology, amusing himself by leading the Latverian government on a merry chase and scorning their pathetic attempts to destroy 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, one of the few men on the planet whose intellect deludes them into thinking themselves Doom's equal. Doom manipulated the fool into helping me construct a portal to Hell, with the noble goal of retrieving my mother's soul. Whether due to Richards' incompetence - or intentional sabotage on his part out of jealousy for Doom's genius - or perhaps both! - the device exploded and [[ScarsAreForever forever marred the noble visage of Doom]]. [[labelnote:Editor's Note]]According to all other accounts, Reed not only had nothing to do with the portal's explosion, he actually ''warned'' Doom that it would- ACK![[/labelnote]] Doom ''accurately and eternally'' blames Richards for his disfigurement, which compelled Doom to [[MinorInjuryOverreaction withdraw from society for some time]].

In Doom's continuing quest for mastery of all human knowledge, he joined a mysterious order which taught him secrets of metallurgy. Doom used this lore to create a suit of PoweredArmor which he has used (with some modifications) since that day. From that moment, and forever more, Doom has been known as '''Doctor Doom'''. Doom swiftly overthrew the foolish and unworthy tyrant of Latveria, made public my claim as absolute master of that land, and has since ruled it with an iron fist - the iron and yet simultaneously benevolent and enlightened fist of Doom! Doom's path soon crossed that of... ''Richards,'' now accompanied by his [[Comicbook/FantasticFour foolish family and sycophants]], who became my sworn enemies. Yet Doom's plans have encountered many obstacles: he has battled heroes and villains in ''abundance!'' - ComicBook/TheAvengers, the ComicBook/XMen, Franchise/SpiderMan, The ComicBook/IncredibleHulk, ComicBook/IronMan, ComicBook/TheMightyThor, ComicBook/{{Luke Cage|HeroForHire}} - all have striven against Doom! Some have even succeeded in ''temporarily'' arresting my plans! [[labelnote:*]]The charitable Doom condescends to mention ComicBook/SquirrelGirl in a footnote for managing to best a Doombot. She most certainly never defeated Doom, as many fools claim.[[/labelnote]] [[labelnote:**]]'''Tippy-Toe Says:''' ComicBook/SquirrelGirl totally pwned Doc Doom in a story written by Creator/SteveDitko him-freakin'-self! That's so in contin-AAK![[/labelnote]] Doom's many, many, ''many'' victories are why Doom is considered Marvel's most iconic villain.

Doom has also granted the boon of his presence to several television series, right back to the days [[WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperheroes when your pathetic animators couldn't document events of the Marvel Universe through anything other than]] [[ClipArtAnimation sliding drawings in front of a camera]]. I have been portrayed in cinema by [[Film/TheFantasticFour Joseph Culp]], [[Film/FantasticFour2005 Julian McMahon]], and [[Film/FantasticFour2015 Toby Kebbell]]. Hubris, yes, but done with enough skill and respect to stay Doom's wrath.

Speaking of cinematic portrayals, Doom seethes at the fact that the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse is unlikely to qual before him in the foreseeable future. This is due to Marvel's petty[[note]]And when I say "petty", I mean ''VERY'' petty, and this is coming from '''''me''''' of all characters[[/note]] [[ScrewedByTheLawyers film rights dispute]] with Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox. For this reason, Doom must admit that he has [[{{Understatement}} some]] issues with not only with Fox, but also Marvel Entertainment's miserable overseer Isaac Perlmutter. Recently, Perlmutter has not only forbade Marvel's artists to depict Doom in Marvel's promotional artwork, but also [[HeelFaceTurn has made me a hero]] as the new ComicBook/IronMan for Marvel's ComicBook/MarvelNow2016 event. Despite these unfortunate events, never forget: '''''DOOM IS THE GREATEST NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS'''''!

The Internet, too, has been copiously graced with Doom's image. My likeness has been used on a show called WebVideo/AssistMe, in which Doom inexplicably shares his quarters with a video game player by the name of Maximilian. Though, for some odd reason, Doom is shown with inexplicable affinities to yogurt and an evidently popular children's show named WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic. I'll be sure to look into that particular Doombot soon enough. Doom has also taken part in another web series called WebAnimation/DeathBattle, where many characters from different universes engage in mortal combat. Doom grants his assigned opponent, one [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]], the supreme accolade: he was that rarest of things, a worthy opponent.

* BadassBookworm: Doom's intelligence is without question, and even without the PoweredArmor Doom is still a formidable (albeit [[BadassNormal completely human]]) combatant; Doom has even killed a lion with his bare hands on one occasion (when stranded in the wild on an alternate Earth). While completely naked. And then Doom skinned it for meat and for sinew to make weapons. Then Doom [[NemeanSkinning wore its carcass as clothing and used its face to make a new mask]].

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: How '''DARE''' you associate this trope with Doom?!? Very well, Doom admits that, with the [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed massive number of threats to destroy all live on Earth, or the Earth itself]], I could be more proactive in trying to stop them, including such instances as the vile killing machine [[HeroKiller Ultron]] wiping out a nearby European nation. I could have responded to him faster than the heroes did. Doom was otherwise occupied!

Inexplicable. [[EvilIsPetty Doom feels that there cannot be a greater purpose than putting Richards in his place!]]
