Greetings True Believers!

Here is one page from the 1987 Marvel graphic novel "Emperor Doom".

It is pretty much the perfect example of Doom, his strength and why he is THE villain of the Marvel Universe.


In this story Doom using the Purple Man to take over the world. He's constructed the Psycho-Prism which amplifies PM's powers (which Doom controls) to an unheard of degree.

For those unfamiliar with him, Purple Man produces a chemical pheromone that allows him to control others. Doom's machine makes that effect world-wide.

He's pissed and Doom and challenges him. Bad idea.

That is Victor Von Doom, Lion of Latveria and Master of the World.

Agreed, a memorably AWESOME moment from Doom.

Can't happen the world would end.

Course I would love to see, Doom vs Batman vs Luthor vs Richards and see what happened.

Man oh man. Luthor as the Weakest Link. Mind officially blown.

I suppose I would have to go with Dr Doom - normally I don't consider the "willing to kill" factor a deciding vote in a "[blank] vs Batman" fight since he fights people who want to kill him all the time but all else being equal, which I think it would be, it might make the difference. Of course, there is always Doom's ego to consider.

Doom has a tendency to make arrogant mistakes, and underestimate his opponents. Batman would make Doom defeat himself.

I...I can't call it. Sure, Doom has access to magic, but Batman has fought and neutralised plenty of magicians before now.

I think it'd come down to home turf. The winner would depend on whether they were in Gotham or Latveria. For all the fact that neither of them technically have a place of power, their own strongholds bring the advantage of familiarity to an almost totemistic level. If you could have a totem the size of a city, of course.

I think 8-bit Theater covered this. Batman would win, but only in a way such that Doom's ultimate goals were furthered. Doom would lose... but still win.

Oh, first round at least would go to Doom. A time machine + a year of prep time to learn Batman's origins? The first issue would involve Gotham City 30-some years ago, a brief flare of ozone in Crime Alley, and a deep voice saying "Be not alarmed, Mr. Wayne. You have the word of Doom that you and your family will all live long and happy lives."

And then Doom would learn that he can't contain the villains that inevitably spring up, who would in another reality be foiled by the Batman, so he grudgingly undoes his earlier work, leaving a young Bruce to become Batman, but this time with a foreknowledge of the name Doom. Therefore, giving Bruce essentially a lifetime's worth of prep-time, which is enough of an advantage to be decisive. In the end, Batman wins.

That there is Doom, all right.

(I enjoyed this GN. For one thing, it had Doom's voice right.)

Doom and Namor have the stongest wills in the Marvel U. Though I'd love to see some modern will feats. It seems to have gone out of style.

Circuitry's been deactivated. I bet though the magical wards protecting his mind haven't.

It's magic. It does whatever the writers want. That said Doom probably would have turned off whatever arcane countermeasures he has as well for this.

Exactly. And, while he's not above cheating, it kind of ruins things if he is in this situation.

That is an awesome Doom moment.

Just too bad it's the Purple Man. I never thought much of him. Somehow, even with all that he (retroactively) did to Jessica, it's hard to take a purple telepath with little ambition seriously.
