History: (What If? II#110/2) - When Doctor Doom successfully took over the world, the Fantastic Four were surprised to discover that they were happy living under Doom's rule. The world had been made into a utopian society. As the Fantastic Four commented to Doctor Doom how great the world was now, Doom only replied with "Hey, man, I told you so!"
Comments: Created by Chris Giarrusso.
The divergence point for this alternate Earth was difficult to determine, due to its one-page story and the costumes that the FF were wearing in the story. The closest I could come to it would be Doom's attempted world takeover in Fantastic Four I#200 (November, 1978). Since Doom didn't appear post-Heroes Reborn until after the What If... issue, the divergence point would have to have been pre-Heroes Reborn and his appearances pre-Heroes Reborn were mostly just him wanting revenge against Reed or being forced to team-up with the FF, as is the case with the Onslaught storyline. He didn't really try to take over the world, so much as just trying to beat the FF. -Proto-Man
