(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#11 (fb) - BTS) - Valeria
harbored a grudge against the sorcerer Wiccan, who was given the title
of Sorcerer Supreme over her. Eventually becoming the ruler of her own
Hell dimension, Valeria took the identity of Dr. Doom and decided to
create an army of sorcerers under her control in an effort to conquer
the living world. To assemble her army, Dr. Doom tempted various
Earth-13729 sorcerers and drew them to her Hell realm, where she
captured them using a mystic orb. She then began plotting to tempt
Wiccan as the final piece of her plan.
(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#10 (fb)) - During a battle with the Brood aliens that resulted in most of his X-Men teammates being infected, Wiccan was telepathically contacted by Dr. Doom, who promised to help. Surrendering himself to Doom, Wiccan was transported to Hell, where Dr. Doom suggested they discuss the terms of Doom's agreement to help. In exchange for power enough to save his teammates and rid the world of the Brood, Wiccan was cursed by Dr. Doom with the Mark of Sorrow, which would slowly kill him.
(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#10) - After Wiccan collapsed due to the Mark of Sorrow, Earth-616 Sorcerer Supreme Dr. Strange and his allies (all from Earth-616) decided to travel to the future of Earth-13729 to help rid Wiccan of the Mark of Sorrow. Arriving in Dr. Doom's Hell, the Sorcerers Supreme realized they were in Hell and Strange recognized Dr. Doom, asking if it was Victor von Doom. Removing her mask, Dr. Doom revealed herself as Valeria but promised that she was all doom.
(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#11) -
Dr. Doom cast a spell meant to torture the souls of the newly-captive
Sorcerers Supreme that forced them to mentally live their idea of Hell,
unaware that Sir Isaac Newton's servant, Mindful One, was not affected.
While Dr. Doom gloated that her army would soon be complete, the
Mindful One released a simulacra of itself to find Doom's vault and
break the source of her power. When Mindful's simulacra destroyed the
orb imprisoning several Earth-13729 sorcerers, Wiccan found himself
free of Doom's Mark of Sorrow and fought back, destroying Doom's demons
and prompting Dr. Doom to fight against Wiccan herself. Announcing that
Wiccan was not worthy of her army, Dr. Doom soon found herself facing
the sorcerers she had earlier imprisoned and demanded to know how
Mindful One was able to resist her tortorous spells. Upon learning
Mindful had no soul to be affected, Dr. Doom blasted back the
Earth-13729 sorcrers and confronted Wiccan personally, proclaiming that
he was intended to be the final piece of her plan to amass a sorcerous
army. Proclaiming that she should have been chosen as Sorcerer Supreme
instead of Wiccan, Dr. Doom demanded to know why the "cowardly"
sorcerers chose him over her and Wiccan replied that he honestly had no
idea and that Dr. Strange had always told him that every Sorcerer
Supreme had their moment to shine. Smiling, Wiccan then thanked Dr.
Doom for giving him his moment and imprisoned Dr. Doom with the Crimson
Bands of Cyttorak. With Valeria defeated, the sorceress Magik asked
what they should do with Dr. Doom, suggesting prison, but the Asgardian
Hela suggested that they instead turn Valeria over to her parents
before flying off with the captured Doom.
Comments: Created by Robbie Thompson and Nathan Stockman.
While it seems likely that Valeria would be the Earth-13729 counterpart to Valeria Richards, it's also a possibility that Earth-13729's Victor von Doom fathered a daughter that he named Valeria. If this Valeria is indeed Valeria Richards then her unidentified parents would be Reed & Sue Richards.
Valeria's height & weight were taken from the Earth-99315 counterpart of Valeria Richards, who was the teenaged Marvel Girl.
