Victor von Doom
|Chronological and political information|
Formerly: The Cabal
Doctor Doom (real name Victor von Doom) is the ruler of Latveria.
Victor von Doom was born to a group of a Latvian Gypsy who were Romani pagans. With a thirst of knowledge, he educated himself vigorously. He eventually took over the nation of Latveria and became it's absolute monarch. He was also among the select villains to receive an invitation into Iron Skull's Cabal, a joint afford between supervillains to destroy the Avengers.
Doom recovered Ulik's weapon Codgel after a fight with the Avengers. The team tracked the weapons energy signature to the Latverian Embassy and battled Doom and his Doombots. Doctor Doom, with a little modification, used the weapon to release the Midgard Serpent with hopes of using it to conquer the globe. After a battle with the Avengers, he and the creature were banished to the Realm Below using the extra-dimensional portal used by Ulik.
Travelling through the Nine Realms, Doom reached the Dwarf realm. Here he not only managed to tame the Midgard Serpent, but somehow managed to attain remote control of the Destroyer. He used it to defend Latveria against HYDRA and A.I.M. However, it increased his agression to the point he did not care who or what he was destroying. His threat was so great that Thor had to summon Loki for help. The two Asgardians, along with Captain America and Falcon fought Trolls but the tamed Midgard Serpent. On Earth, Iron Man managed to break Doom's control by showing him he was destroying the country he wanted to protect. Doom then gave up control of both the Serpent and the Destroyer. He returned to Latveria and calmly went inside his castle warning the Avengers, they had bigger problems.
Unlike the others, it is revealed that Doom denied the invitation, so Red Skull claimed war on his head. He called for Captain America's help, but as a package deal received the Avengers. While trying to protect Doom, although still skeptical, the avengers engaged with the Cabal. To at least some trust points, Doom saved Captain America from Hyperion.
