Speaking of cinematic portrayals, Doom will sadly like to inform you will not have the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse be bestowed with his (admittedly ''VERY'' badly-needed) presence 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, I 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'''''!

* WolverinePublicity: How ''dare'' you compare Doom to that [[ComicBook/Wolverine hirsute vulgarian]]! But yes, Doom has had a very long history of appearing in many, many Marvel Comics titles, both ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' and otherwise. In fact, I have actually ''[[OlderThanTheyThink preceded]] said [[TropeNamer hirsute vulgarian]] by well over a decade! It has contributed to Doom's popularity among fans and writers.

In Doom's continuing quest for mastery of all human knowledge, he joined 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.

I, Victor Von Doom, was introduced by Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby as the ArchEnemy of the ComicBook/FantasticFour, and one of the smartest men... No! The ''unquestioned smartest man'' on Earth. Doom was born in a UsefulNotes/{{Romani}} family in the FictionalCountry of Latveria, the son of a witch and a herbalist. When my beloved mother Cynthia was killed by the demons she had summoned to fight Latverian soldiers, Doom swore revenge! The death of my father because of a Latverian tyrant only added fuel to Doom's desire for... further revenge!

Doom began to master both magic and technology to seek that revenge, amusing himself by leading the Latverian government on a merry chase while thwarting their pathetic 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, one of the few men on the planet whose intelligence can even approach Doom's (and then not by much, I can assure you). Wishing to resurrect my dead mother, Doom manipulated the fool into helping me construct a portal to Hell; however, 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 damaged my face]]. [[labelnote:Editor's Note]]Due to source bias, it should be noted that not only did Reed not have anything to do with the portal's explosion, he actually ''warned'' Doom that it would- ACK![[/labelnote]] Doom ''completely and correctly'' blames Richards for this so-called accident, which compelled Doom to [[MinorInjuryOverreaction withdraw from society for some time]].

Doom then joined a mysterious order which taught him secret knowledge, including metallurgy. Doom used it 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'''. The feeble tyrant of Latveria was no match for Doom! I overthrew that fool, claimed his homeland as ruler, and have since ruled it with an iron fist! The iron and yet simultaneously benevolent and enlightened fist of Doom! Doom's path was soon to once again cross that of the indescribably foolish Richards, this time along with his equally [[Comicbook/FantasticFour foolish family and sycophants]], who became my sworn enemies. And even beyond that, Doom's destiny has led him to battle 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 struggled against me, and some have even succeeded in ''temporarily'' arresting my plans!
