Dr. Doom / Iron Man (Victor Von Doom, Marvel Prime)

If there is one person who is considered the most dangerous treat to the Marvel Universe, it’s the Latverian Emperor, Dr. Victor Von Doom. Red Skull? He just a guy who can’t let go of the past. Thanos? He just was the girl he loves to notice him. Galatacus? Dudes just hungry. No the reason Doom is the most dangerous is that he knows he is dangerous.

A master of both science and magic, Dr. Doom was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in Fantastic Four #5, as an one off character. That right, Doom was only supposed to appear that one time but the fans loved his ego driven crusade. Being that he is the ruler of his own country, even if he attacked many heroes but of diplomatic immunity he can’t be arrested. He has battle almost every hero in the Marvel Universe and been the central villain for many major story arc, such as the Secret Wars.

As the main villain of the Marvel Universe, he has gotten quite a few figures over the year. None really captures the character of Doom so I am hoping that the Walgreens Fantastic four exclusives will eventually include a Doom figure. but until then here are my recommendations.


Made:

Classic / Ruler

01

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Epic Heroes Dr. Doom

  • Background:
    • When fans think of Doom they think of him as this. A king of his own country, Latvaria, he rose to power by killing the former ruler. Despite his tyrannical rule, he treats his people fairly, providing them with food and energy so that they never go hungry or cold. Thus his people would follow his ruling, all the while some people try and bring him down.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • The one recommended is a repaint of the Fantastic Four wave/Ronan wave Dr. Doom, but this one has a better paint job. There was the Toybiz one but I find that way to short and skinny.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • I really want Hasbro to take another stab that this version. The one they made was good but lacks the presence you expect from Doom.

Future Foundation

02

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Epic Heroes Dr. Doom (Variant, UK Exclusive?)

  • Background:
    • Doom had just returned to power, after being dead from another fight with the F4, resulting in the Thing’s death, when he was visited by Valeria, Sue and Reed’s daughter, who asked for help in fighting a Council of Reeds. They gather together many of the brightest mind in the world of villains for a plan to killed Reed. In this way they hoped to defeat the Council of Reeds. Since this was during the Future Foundation time, he took to wear white for quite a while.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • As a UK Exclusive (which I find weird cause I never found it in Ireland),this one might be harder to get a hold of.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • If they remake the Classic version then this one is a obvious repaint in a box set or something.
