Supervillains of Science: 10 Best Doctor Doom Moments in Marvel Comics History

     September 17, 2016


When thinking of the best “Supervillains of Science” in comic book history, Marvel’s Doctor Doom has to be near the top of your list. The Latverian leader has been a metallic thorn in the side of the Fantastic Four for 53 years, also battling other Marvel heroes like Iron Man, Silver Surfer, and Spider-Man along the way. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Doom is a particularly interesting character since he’s essentially just a human. A human with a genius-level intellect and a mastery of the magical arts sure, but a human just the same.

We decided to take a look back at Doom’s history to find his best super-science moments. Yes, this means his more mystical, magical adventures (ie the “Unthinkable” storyline in Fantastic Four 67-70, 500; and the sorcerer battle in “Dr. Strange and Dr. Doom: Triumph and Torment”; and an honorable mention for Fantastic Four #236 “Terror in a Tiny Town”) won’t be included. However, we will explore Doom’s use of science and technology to achieve his two main goals: taking over the world, and saving his mother’s soul from Hell.
