-- Victor Von Doome, Doctor Doom

Early Life

Victor was born to a Monarchy of a family who ruled Latveria for generations, Victor was set to also rule Latveria after he turns twenty-one.

Victor attended Oxford University and earned many doctorates. Victor decided he didn't want to rule Latveria and wanted to be a scientist so he abandoned Latveria and moved to the United States.

Approached by the army

Victor was approached by the army to replicate Abraham Erskine's Super Soldier formula, the serum that created Captain America. After agreeing to take on the project, he was introduced to Reed Richards and Sue Storm, the scientists who would be helping him in the project.

Victor would grow jealous of Reed due to his feelings that had developed for Sue and eventually develop a hatred of him after the two had gotten engaged.

The accident

Approaching a dead end, Richards came up with the idea that dark matter and extra-dimensional energies can be the key to unlocking the secrets to the Super Soldier Serum, the army granted the three the funds to build a state of the art ship to look for wormholes near the moon's atmosphere, Richards called in his childhood friend and state of the art engineer Ben Grimm while Sue called her younger brother Johnny to help build the ship. After it was built, the five went to investigate the wormhole but were sucked inside of it being basked in the dark matter and extra-dimensional energies.

Victor later awoke to see he was burning up on reentry into the Earth's atmosphere, Victor didn't feel any pain and crash landed in Latveria, Victor got up to see his skin was covered in metal. Horrified at this revelation he returned to his ancestral home to find out he had been gone for two years and that Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny had also developed powers and become celebrities.

Attacking the Fantastic Four

Victor spent a few weeks mastering his powers, the dark matter and extra-dimensional energies also tampered with his mental stability, to the point it made Victor want to end Reed's life.

Victor, now calling himself Doctor Doom, would develop an army of drones and would send them to the Baxter Building to kill Reed. He later discovered that the Fantastic Four had survived the attack and knew that they would eventually come for him.

Battling the Fantastic Four

Doom was indeed right as the Fantastic Four arrived. Reed and Sue were relieved to see he was alive, Victor explained that he only just came back to Earth and his metallic skin saved him from burning up on re-entry to Earth's atmosphere. Ben then asks why he tried to kill them to which Victor replies with "I've always hated you Reed, and now with the power I have I can kill you. Oh, and my name is DOOM!" he then emits a mass of electrical energy and hurls it toward Reed, it hits him and knocks him out cold. Ben immediately begins attacking Doom, Ben is shocked by Doom's advanced strength and notices that his metallic skin has increased his strength.

Johnny goes to find Ben and Doom fighting outside, seeing Johnny as the wildcard, Doom immediately destroys a fire hydrants and blasts it toward Johnny infused with his electricity. It cools Johnny's fire out while electrocuting him causing Johnny to also go unconscious. Reed, now awake exits the castle with Sue and begins attacking him alongside Ben. Reed dodges an incoming attack from Doom and wraps himself around him restraining him. Ben uses this as an opportunity and punches Doom square in the face and sends him miles.

Doom comes back and is ready to kill the Fantastic Four, Sue tired of all the fighting creates an air bubble around his head and knocks him unconscious. The Fantastic Four bring Doom back to the Baxter Building and imprison him there, Reed feels guilty over what happened to him and decides to find a cure for Victor and Ben.
