Doctor Doom is an enemy of the Fantastic Four, and has been included in almost every media adaptation of the Fantastic Four franchise, including film, television, and computer and video games.

Television[edit]

  • Doctor Doom appeared perhaps most significantly in six episodes of the 1981 Spider-Man series produced by Marvel Productions, voiced by Ralph James with heavy modulation akin to Darth Vader. The latter five episodes, written by Larry Parr, comprised a complete story arc, and four of them were at one point edited together into an animated feature.
  • Doctor Doom appeared in the Fantastic Four series (1994–1996), voiced by John Vernon and Neil Ross in season one and Simon Templeman in season two. In the episode "Mask of Doctor Doom ", he captured the Fantastic Four and forced Mister Fantastic, Human Torch and Thing to go back in time and obtain an object for him. In the episode "Silver Surfer and the Return of Galactus", he steals Silver Surfer's powers and destroy the Fantastic Four but is tricked by the FF (who are in the fantastic car with Silver Surfer) to follow them to outer space, but due to Galactus' decree that Silver Surfer may not surf the cosmos ever again is thwarted by the planet devourer himself and the Power Cosmic is returned to the Silver Surfer. In the episode "And a Blind Man Shall Lead Them", he struck at a powerless FF and had his hands crushed by the Thing. In the episode "Nightmare in Green", he directed Hulk to attack the team. In the episode "Doctor Doom sday", he again acquired the Power Cosmic in the series finale. Once again, he is tricked into going to outer space, only to hit the barrier that prevents Silver Surfer from leaving Earth.
  • Simon Templeman reprised his role for guest appearances in two episodes of The Incredible Hulk (1996–1997). Doctor Doom held Washington, D.C. captive, only to be defeated by She-Hulk whom he later attempted to claim revenge upon. With his appearance on this show, it can be assumed that he survived the fate he met on the Fantastic Four series if both shows are to be considered within the same continuity.
  • Doctor Doom appears in a three-part guest spot in the final season of Spider-Man (1994–1998) voiced by Tom Kane. Doctor Doom's role is re-imagined in the Secret Wars. In the episode's third part, Doctor Doom turned part of the alien world he was on into "New Latveria" after overthrowing Doctor Octopus's Octavia and renaming it "New Latveria". However, he did not use his ruling powers to oppress and allowed the aliens in his country to live in peace and harmony, protecting them from the other villains. He even kidnapped Thing only to cure him of his deformity, turning him back to Ben Grimm, and healed his own face as an afterthought. In a stark contrast to the comics, in which his face is not revealed, his newly restored face was actually shown onscreen. With Ben's cooperation, he then stole the Beyonder's powers and sent the other villains back to Earth and almost killed the superheroes that Ben fought along with. However, he proved unable to control the power fully, his nightmares and subconscious fears spawning monsters that constantly attacked New Latveria. The Thing turned Doctor Doom's weapon on him, and the Beyonder's powers were returned to the mystic figure himself. Doctor Doom was then returned to Earth with no memory of these events (as well as presumably his scarred face), along with every other villain and superhero apart from Spider-Man.
  • Doctor Doom appears in Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, voiced by Paul Dobson. In this version, it is implied that he is indeed smarter than Mister Fantastic (Reed Richards) he wears a large green coat, a green & silver armor with a glowing green light on the chest and sharp claws. In the pilot "Doctor Doom sday", he is revealed to have diplomatic immunity as a head of state which means the American police cannot place him under arrest. He retains an embassy that serves as his residence. Doctor Doom's more sociopathic and Machiavellian tendencies are displayed. Such as launching the Baxter Building into orbit (with little regard for the remaining tenants inside). In the episode "Doctor Doom sday", he fabricated records of Reed deliberately exposing his teammates to cosmic rays to alienate and capture him; subsequently using Reed's own invention to harness the energy from the Negative Zone and the creatures that reside and unleash them upon New York which he acknowledged would have killed thousands (or potentially millions). In one episode where in one of his experiments his mind gets put into Reed's body and vice versa, he attempts to destroy Reed's reputation and overload the Baxter Building's power supply destroying it and several city blocks beyond it. In the episode, more is revealed about Doctor Doom's life and ruling attitude. Doctor Doom (with Richards's mind) is now considerably more polite and respectful of others. Reed also commands the Doombots to destroy themselves as 'word of Doctor Doom is law' and releases the face mask. Though the viewer is not shown Doctor Doom's face, when they're return to their proper bodies, Richards tells Doctor Doom that his insecurity, in particular about his personal appearance, is his greatest adversary. In another episode, an alternative timeline version of Doctor Doom is shown without his mask. In a latter episode, Doctor Doom uses a variation of Iron Man's armor. In the final episode "Doctor Doom 's Word Is Law", Doctor Doom is apparently killed when a self-destructing Doombot blows up his castle. Here, Doctor Doom's Doombots are not robot doubles but his foot soldiers. As a result of fighting the Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom has equipped them with weapons suited to each member (i.e. an ice cannon for the Human Torch, etc.). Doctor Doom's partially damaged face was only seen once in the episode "Annihilation".
  • Doctor Doom appears in the The Super Hero Squad Show, voiced by Charlie Adler. In the first season, he is the primary antagonist and is after the Infinity Sword and has enlisted a number of villains to help him obtain it, with MODOK and Abomination as his primary henchmen.[1] He is defeated and sent to prison at the end of the first season. In the second season, he escapes prison and plots to obtain the Infinity Sword and the Infinity Stones, serving mainly as a secondary villain before being captured and imprisoned once again in the series finale.
  • Doctor Doom appears in Iron Man: Armored Adventures, voiced by Christopher Britton.[2] In this show, Doctor Doom's armor was declared so advanced that Tony Stark stated it made his armor "look like a toaster with arms". The character's background and basis is vastly different from his original version: Victor Von Doom is a member of the royal family of Latveria, he was married, his scarring accident happened in Latveria and resulted in him killing the ruling portion of his family to inherit the throne and he has rarely visited the USA. In the episode "The Might of Doom", Doctor Doom appeared in New York to meet up with Obadiah Stane in order to obtain the armor specifications from stolen files and in return would improve Stane's "Monger Core" generator. After the retrieval of the specs occurred, Doctor Doom fought Iron Man and put him into a three-hour deep sleep, also beating War Machine. After the core was upgraded, Doctor Doom activated a timer that would first have the generator absorb all the energy in New York then expel it in one enormous blast. Iron Man, however, was able to stop the timer, angering Doctor Doom. War Machine landed Doctor Doom's plane to which he returned the favor by nearly defeating the two armored heroes in a two-on-one battle. During the battle between Iron Man and Doctor Doom following War Machine's retreat, Doctor Doom prepares to invoke Dormammu's magic to defeat Iron Man. Just then, S.H.I.E.L.D. arrives to end the fight as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents escort Doctor Doom back to Latveria as Doctor Doom vows to fight Iron Man again. As Doctor Doom is given a ride back to Latveria, Nick Fury then states to Iron Man that they have been keeping an eye on Doctor Doom even though he has diplomatic immunity and then quotes "Son, we know all about Doctor Doom. When he makes a mistake, S.H.I.E.L.D. will be there to take him down.". It is later revealed by Pepper Potts to Tony that Doctor Doom's armor was based on Makluan technology. In the episode "Doomsday", Doctor Doom finds the temple of the 9th Makluan Ring and manages to defeat its guardian Grey Gargoyle just as Mandarin and Howard Stark arrive. Doctor Doom uses the 9th Makluan Ring to cause strange phenomena around the world. When Iron Man and Mandarin arrive, they end up in a death trap which they get out of until they encounter Doctor Doom. Iron Man demands that Doctor Doom tells him that he hands Howard to him. Doctor Doom uses the 9th Makluan Ring and ends up attacking Iron Man and Mandarin. When Iron Man gives Mandarin one of his rings, they do a combination attack on Doctor Doom (which turned out to be a Doombot with a fake Makluan Ring). Upon finding a secret chamber in Castle Doctor Doom, they find Howard in a cube cell only to be attacked and imprisoned by Doctor Doom. Doctor Doom mentions that he has tapped into the 9th Makluan Ring which can create wormholes. Doctor Doom then uses the 9th Makluan Ring to summon Yogthul and give him Iron Man, Mandarin, and Howard in exchange to be reunited with his family. Yogthul declares that Mandarin is not a pure soul and ends up rescinding his deal with Doctor Doom. When Iron Man and Mandarin escape from Yogthul's dimension, they end up fighting Doctor Doom again. Howard then turns on the electricity to shock Doctor Doom as Mandarin claims the 9th Makluan Ring from him. Iron Man then traps Doctor Doom in Yogthul's dimension.
  • Doctor Doom appears in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, voiced by Lex Lang. He was first mentioned in the episode "The Breakout" (Part 1) during a trade with A.I.M. was made on his behalf.[3] Doctor Doom made his first physical appearance in the second season premiere "The Private War of Doctor Doom" where he sends Lucia von Bardas and an army of Doombots to attack the Avengers Mansion and the Baxter Building which ended with the capture of Invisible Woman and Wasp. Doom had both heroes placed in a special machine as the Avengers and the Fantastic Four make their way towards Latveria. Initially not wanting an international incident with Doctor Doom being the head of a sovereign nation on foreign soil, the Avengers try a stealth attack which Doctor Doom anticipates. Doctor Doom effortlessly defeats both the Avengers and the three remaining Fantastic Four members. Invisible Woman and Wasp are freed only by Doctor Doom's mercy and the machine is destroyed enabling the Avengers and the Fantastic Four to retreat. In the final scene, Doctor Doom was going over the data he had received from the machine where he learns that "Invisible Woman" was actually a Skrull imposter the whole time.[4] In the episode "Infiltration", Doctor Doom returns and hands Iron Man a chip with the ability to scan human beings to see if they are Skrulls or not. He then leaves opting not to take part in the eventual rebellion against the full-scale invasion. He also appeared in the episode "Emperor Stark" where he was seen battling Thor and Iron Man drones under the Purple Man's control. The outcome of the battle is never stated or shown.
  • Doctor Doom appears in the Ultimate Spider-Man, voiced by Maurice LaMarche. In the episode "Doomed", Spider-Man, Power Man, Iron Fist, Nova and White Tiger head to Latveria in order capture Doctor Doom and prove themselves to Nick Fury. When Spider-Man and the other heroes managed to defeat Doctor Doom to bring to Fury, "Doctor Doom" turns out to be a Mark 6 Hoberman Doombot (which contained small models in its compartments) programmed to destroy the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. After Spider-Man and the team destroyed the Doctor Doom bot before destruction of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier's fusion core, the real Doctor Doom leaves a transmission that he has scanned their strengths and weakness and will be ready for them if they ever return to Latveria. The episode "Beetle Mania" shows footage of Beetle making a deal with Doctor Doom. In the episode "Not a Toy", Doctor Doom gets a hold of Captain America's shield when it is accidentally thrown off the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and goes right through the Latverian Embassy's window. When Spider-Man tries to claim that the shield is a replica, Doctor Doom does not buy this and launches a heat-seeking missile. After avoiding the missile, Captain America and Spider-Man begin to infiltrate the Latverian Embassy where Captain America suspects that Doctor Doom might reverse-engineer the shield to reinforce his armor or any weapon. After fighting past the Doom-Dogs and Doombots, Captain America and Spider-Man make their way towards Doctor Doom studying Captain America's shield where they find that Doctor Doom has been using the Latverian Embassy for some invasion and that Captain America's shield is escaping to Latveria in his jet. Upon defeating the Doctor Doom Dogs, Captain America and Spider-Man land on Doctor Doom's jet as he ends up attacking them. Spider-Man crashes Doctor Doom's jet into the park. Spider-Man states that Doctor Doom was taking over the world as Doctor Doom states that he plans to remake North America. Doctor Doom attacks them as Spider-Man claims they were stalling just as the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier arrives. Although he is taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, Doctor Doom claims that his Embassy Officials will have him out by sundown and is later deported back to Latveria. Doctor Doom makes a brief appearance in the episode "Ultimate Deadpool" when Deadpool brags about defeating half the Latverian Army and "staching" the villain at which point showing an Internet video of a mustachioed puppet of the dictator threatening the U.N. (and receiving only laughter) before noticing the mustache and angrily yelling 'Deadpool!'.
  • Maurice LaMarche reprises his role as Doctor Doom in Avengers Assemble.[5] In the episode "The Avengers Protocol", Doctor Doom is briefly seen receiving a holographic message from Red Skull to join his Cabal. In the episode "The Serpent of Doom", Doctor Doom manages to obtain Ulik's weapon Codgel (following Ulik's fight against Thor) after intercepting it from some HYDRA agents with the help of his Doom-Dogs. Red Skull was not pleased with Doctor Doom obtaining the Codgel upon contacting him. Doctor Doom states that he is the only one capable of handling the Codgel and does not want to take up Red Skull's offer to join the Cabal. The Avengers tracked the Codgel's energy signature to the Latverian Embassy in order to retrieve it. Battling his Doombots, Doctor Doom enters the fight standing toe to toe against Thor. Doctor Doom used the modified Codgel to fulfill the supposed legends release the Midgard Serpent with hopes of enslaving it to conquer the globe. After a battle with the Avengers, he and the Midgard Serpent were banished to the Realm Below using the extra-dimensional portal that was used by Ulik. In the episode "The Doomstroyer", Doctor Doom takes control of the Destroyer which he uses to attack the HYDRA Agents and the A.I.M. Agents that are in Latveria. During his fight with the Avengers, Doctor Doom mentioned that he has seen all of the Asgardian worlds which explained how he was able to gain control of the Destroyer. The effects of Doctor Doom controlling the Destroyer has even caused him to attack his own people. With help from Loki, Thor, Captain America and Falcon were able to trace Doctor Doom to Helheim where he is using the Helhorn to control the Destroyer and is being guarded by the Midgard Serpent. Iron Man was able to get through to Doctor Doom as he deactivates the Destroyer. Captain America then removes the Helhorn from Doctor Doom as he is evacuated from Helheim and returned to Latveria. Doctor Doom then turns down Iron Man's charity offer to help with the relief in Latveria and orders the Avengers to leave as they have more pressing matters to attend to. In "Planet Doom," Doctor Doom uses his Time Platform to go back in time to prevent the Avengers from forming like leaving Captain America in ice, saving Tony Stark's life after a bomb was used on him, saving Bruce Banner before he can go into him (while constructing a special gamma-proof suit), ending all conflict, eliminating all diseases, and solving world hunger. Doctor Doom then takes over the world to save it from the corruption of humanity where he is served by Bruce Banner, Black Bride (this reality's version of Black Widow), and Tony Stark (who is operating under the name Brain Trust). When Thor returned to Earth, he learns of what happened when he meets the Defenders (consisting of Clint "Bullseye" Barton, Peter "Slinger" Parker, and Sam "Snap" Wilson). After the group is captured by Black Bride and the Doombots, Doctor Doom tries to get Thor to divulge the secrets of Mjolnir. Upon not getting any info from Thor, Doctor Doom arranges for their public termination. Before the termination can commence, Black Bride takes the opportunity to turn on Doctor Doom as has Punisher (who was disguised as an executioner) destroy the Doombots that held the Defenders. Upon taking down Thor, Doctor Doom tries to lift Mjolnir as Black Bride resuscitates him. The battle was enough to free Captain America from ice as Brain Trust and Bruce Banner help to defeat Doctor Doom. Upon using the Time Platform, Thor goes back in time to the moment that Doctor Doom was about to use his Time Platform at one of his bases and secretly destroys it with lightning. When a Doombot asks if they should commence with the project, Doctor Doom blasts it stating that he won't commence it and leaves. In "The Ambassador," Nick Fury is ordered by his superiors to have S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers protect Doctor Doom while he is speaking at the United Nations, due to the cabal wanting to attack him when he didn't join them. During a fight with Attuma, Dracula and the Red skull, but it was actually a ploy to get him to Avenger's tower to improve his tech using the Avenger's. After making it back to Latveria, he discovers that the information he downloaded was a Trojan Horse program as a transmission from the Avengers state that they knew Doctor Doom would try something like this. Captain America then states to Doctor Doom that if he ever leaves Latveria again, he will be arrested. The Trojan Horse program then shuts down Doctor Doom's powergrid for weeks.
  • Doctor Doom appeared in the Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. episode "Red Rover",[6] voiced again by Maurice LaMarche. Doctor Doom ends up capturing Red Hulk when he unknowingly ends up in Latveria as part of Red Hulk's plan to find another location for Devil Dinosaur. Using a larger armor, Doctor Doom ended up siphoning Red Hulk's gamma energy as Devil Dinosaur frees Red Hulk as they escape from Latveria. When Red Hulk and Devil Dinosaur arrive back in Vista Verde, Doctor Doom catches up to them as the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. arrive to join the battle. During the fight, Doctor Doom ends up within the Gamma Base to look for the gamma generator where he encounters Leader who offers to team up with Doctor Doom in exchange for freeing him. Doctor Doom turns down Leader stating that he only teams up with villains on the epic level. With help from Devil Dinosaur, the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. disable Doctor Doom's large armor as Hulk sends Doctor Doom flying into the atmosphere.

Film[edit]

  • Doctor Doom appears in the unreleased film based on the Fantastic Four which was produced by Roger Corman in 1994, portrayed by Joseph Culp. He was a college classmate of Reed Richards who was nearly killed in an accident when both try to capture the power of a comet called the Colossus.
  • Doctor Doom is in the 2005 film Fantastic Four, played by Julian McMahon. The film version seems to be more based on his Ultimate counterpart. Victor Von Doom is a science colleague, billionaire entrepreneur and a rival to Reed Richards for Susan Storm's affections. The Four were on Victor's funded ship who was also exposed to the cosmic dust cloud, where Victor was thought to be protected. As a result, he started transforming into an organic-metallic compound (described as stronger than titanium and harder than diamonds), capable of superhuman strength and controlling electricity. Adopting a metal mask and a green cloak to hide his scars and his transformation, he calls himself "Doctor Doom ". He almost kills Johnny Storm with a heat seeking missile, kidnaps Reed and freezes him, but the Thing stops him and all Four defeat him. In the final part of the film, he was transported to Latveria.
  • Doctor Doom returns in the sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer with Julian McMahon reprising the role. With Doctor Doom having been 'reawakened' after the residual energy of the Silver Surfer passing over Latveria revived him, he attempted to form an alliance with Silver Surfer, only for Silver Surfer's subsequent attack to heal Doctor Doom's scars and skin damage, although he retained his electric powers. Deceiving both the Four and the military, he pretends to help them capture Silver Surfer, only to don a suit of armor and a new mask (both closer resembling his usual appearance) before taking control of Silver Surfer's board. After flying around and battling the Four and Surfer in their Fantasticar, they end up in Shanghai, where he impales Sue with a metal spear trying to kill the power-less Surfer. After her brief death, Johnny Storm absorbs the powers of the other three heroes (effectively becoming a version of Super-Skrull) and battles Doctor Doom, separating him from the board. Ben Grimm then comes from behind with a crane and sends Doctor Doom flying into a nearby harbor. His fate after this is unknown.
