History:

(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 Amplifier, 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.

(Avengers 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.
