Powers/Abilities: Dr. Doom was a brilliant
scientist specializing in technology and robotics. He had a full set of
advanced body armor with defensive and offensive capabilities. The
gauntlets could generate incapacitating ion blasts while the armor
could withstand large explosive blasts. Doom was brash and arrogant,
yet defiant and fiercely nationalistic.

(Avengers United They Stand#4 (fb) - BTS) - In his
youth, Doom's face was scarred in an experiment that went awry, which
he blamed on Reed Richards. He made himself an advanced suit of armor
and became a leader in robotics. Doom earnestly took on the
responsibility of leadership of the small, mountain-locked European
nation of Latveria, proud that it had turned back invaders across the
last thousand years. However, he also closed Latveria's borders and
installed deadly automated defenses.
Doom developed his own secret weapons,
including what was later pursued by A.I.M. as the Ultimate
a hand-held device that excited vibrations in matter until it triggered
an explosion. The criminal Black Knight stole A.I.M.'s prototype and
hoped to sell it to Doom.
(Avengers United They Stand#1) - Unable to identify
to Agent Sikorsky who was behind the surprise attack on Avengers
Mansion, Ant-Man suggested Dr. Doom, amonsgt others.
United They Stand#4)
- Advised by S.H.I.E.L.D. intelligence, the Avengers (Ant-Man, Falcon,
Tigra, Vision, Wasp) sought to stop the dangerous Ultimate Amplifier falling into
the despot's hands and pursued Black Knight across the Latverian
border. Doom's robot sentries incapacitated them and each was fitted
with a power-neutralizing collar before being left with Doom. The
leader violently dismissed the Black Knight's sales pitch and crushed
the prototype in his gauntlet, then decreed they all be executed for
invasion, destruction and espionage the next day. Defiant, they
attacked, but he neutralized them with gauntlet-mounted ion blasts. He
watched them be dragged off to the castle dungeons, but then took
Ant-Man away separately as he admired the scientist to discuss science
and preach Latverian history. The other Avengers and the Black Knight
escaped and burst in to rescue Ant-Man, who distracted Doom with a
quickly assembled imitation Ultimate Amplifier. Ant-Man pretended to
trigger an explosive reaction in Doom's metal faceplate, causing Doom
to fling his mask away while his former captives flew away. Angered but
still unmasked, Doom ordered that only his robots attend him and he
swore revenge on Ant-Man.
