Victor Von Doom (commonly known as Dr. Doom) was a global terrorist and the founder and CEO of Von Doom Industries.
Victor Von Doom was born on January 19, 1970 in Riga, Latvia. His father, Werner Von Doom, was a local politician and his mother, Elizabeth, was secretly a demon. Shortly after Victor was born, Werner found out his wife was a demon and tried to take Victor from her, but Elizabeth killed her husband and raised Victor herself. Elizabeth taught Victor to despise his human side for its "weaknesses." Mephisto saw a good deal of promise in Victor, and had Elizabeth put him through law school in the United States so that he could blend into human society as an important lawyer and businessman. Victor was particularly well-suited to this since he was half-human.
College and Career
Victor then entered college at and graduated from Yale University and over the next several years became a successful businessman and lawyer, even creating his own company, Von Doom Industries and becoming a multi-billionaire by the age of thirty.
As CEO of Von Doom Industries, Victor oversaw and dictated most everything within his company. After he began funding the Baxter Building project, Victor encountered two of it's top scientists Reed Richards and daughter of the lead scientist of the project, Susan Storm. Victor and Reed didn't get along, because both thought they were smarter than the other. Their rivalry intensified when Victor expressed interest in Reed's girlfriend, Susan.
