Powers/Abilities: The Doomsman possessed power comparable to that of the Silver Surfer, principally the ability to manipulate the power cosmic. Via this power he could achieve Class 100 strength and durability, as well as fire energy blasts. In addition, he was perhaps 15' tall, and was ruthless in his attacks, unlike the Surfer, who usually holds back his power to avoid injuring others.

(Fantastic Four I#155 + 156 - BTS) - Dr. Doom manipulated the Silver Surfer into coming to Castle Doom and sitting in a certain chair, which analyzed and duplicated his power.

(Fantastic Four I#157) - Dr. Doom transferred the power into his android, whom he dubbed "Doomsman II," after his previous android, the Doomsman. After a brief period of testing, Doom was pleased with his android's power, and sent it to attack the Fantastic Four, whom he had also led to his castle. The Doomsman proved immune to any of the attacks of the Fantastic Four and soon had them at his mercy. However, the Silver Surfer sensed the combat and joined the fight, tipping the scales against the Doomsman, who fell before their collective power.
