History: (Super-Villain Team-Up#6)- Bela alerted Dr. Doom to the activities of the Fantastic Four, who were battling their way through his robot army. Although they were close to reaching Castle Doom, Doom refused to abandon his meeting with Henry Kissinger.

(Super-Villain Team-Up#8)- When Dr. Doom returned to his castle after securing the aid of the Hydro-Men, loyal to Prince Namor, he was met by Bela, and insulted him as before. Tamara Rahn was disgusted by Doom's behavior, but Doom insisted that he was like unto Bela's father, and that Bela was his errant son. However, when Doom was informed by Bela that the Sub-Mariner had escaped his prison he struck Bela down in anger.
