Dr. Doom

AKA: Doctor Doom, Doom, The Master, Invincible Man, Vincent Vaughn, Hans, Rabum Alal, The Great Destroyer, The Damned, Destroyer of Worlds, Doom the Destroyer, God Emperor Doom, God, Doctor Iron Doom, Beast of the Balkans, President Metal Man, The New Apprentice, and has also inhabited the bodies of Daredevil, Norman McArthur, Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Thing and Human Torch, Iron Man

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.


Classic / Ruler

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends ? 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. Hasbro has recently announced an update to this version but it is currently unknown where or when it will be released. That being said this is needed for every collection as he has battled everybody.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

Future Foundation

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.

Infamous Iron Man

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Walgreens Marvel Legends Infamous Iron Man

  • Background:
    • After being a God and being defeated in Secret Wars, Doom lost his throne. He began to try to reform. He approached Iron Man and tried to aid him. However, Stark tried to stay away from him and he was killed in Civil War II. Doom took this opportunity to right his wrong and became Iron Man himself. He had a good run by capturing many villains but when Stark returned, he gave up the mantle.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • The Infamous Iron Man story was actually pretty good. However, many people would complain that they should have done a new Doom instead. Get this if you like the story line. Otherwise it can be skipped.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.


Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not fact. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
