DOOM, born [[AlliterativeName Daniel Dumile]] (January 9, 1971 - October 31, 2020) 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 described himself in this period as "recovering from his wounds" and swearing revenge "against the industry that so badly deformed him."

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 Doctor Doom. DOOM has consistently worn a [[CoolMask now-iconic mask]] since he returned to performing, modeled after Maximus Decimus Meridius' mask from ''Film/{{Gladiator}}''; it is nearly impossible to find pictures of him from after 1998 or so in which he shows his face.

DOOM's raps often play with the ideas of the SuperHero and SuperVillain, or use those tropes to {{deconstruct|ion}} hip-hop culture. His lyrics are marked by a vast knowledge of popular culture, and commonly allude to ScienceFiction, {{Fantasy}}, WesternAnimation, and ComicBook characters. In addition to the ComicBook/FantasticFour mythos from which his identity is borrowed (and from where he gets a lot of [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]] {{sampl|ing}}es of people complaining about "Doom"), he's fond of ''Franchise/StarTrek'', commonly comparing himself to Worf. The potential for {{Narm}} in this is tempered by DOOM's lyrical skill and playfulness and support by a range of excellent producers. DOOM maintains a good degree of popularity in both underground and mainstream hip-hop circles.
