Drawn from Earth across the stars, the Marvel Universe’s greatest heroes and villains are set against one another by the mysterious and all-powerful Beyonder — with the winner promised the ultimate prize! But as battle lines are drawn, new alliances forged and old enemies clash, one among them is not willing to settle for anything less than godhood. Can even the combined might of the Avengers, Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men prevent Doctor Doom from becoming the most powerful being in the universe? Now, the greatest super hero war of all time is collected alongside an untold chapter of Thor’s time on Battleworld, Titania’s incredible origin, and “What If?” tales that offer very different endings to the Secret Wars!

Critically, Secret Wars Omnibus is the greatest Marvel comic of all-time. In fact, the company-wide crossover tells the story of the cosmic god Beyonder‘s orchestration of a battle royale between the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Avengers, Spider-Man vs the Wrecking Crew, Galactus, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Lizard, Doctor Octopus and Enchantress on Battleworld.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


To begin, Secret Wars Omnibus is the first company crossover in Marvel history. Indeed, it’s the greatest comic of all-time in terms of popularity, financial success and impact on continuity. In fact, Marvel Studios plans to adapt the comic in Phase 6 of its movies.

Really, the comic is perfect for all ages and its straightforward tale of good heroes against evil villains to entertain a cosmic god, will appeal to adults and children. Also, witness Doctor Doom’s great moment as he attempts to steal the Beyonder’s power!

The comic is good for your Marvel collection. You will definitely love Michael Zeck’s thin lines, the quick story-telling, and the colorful panels. This oversized omnibus brings together beautiful illustrations that bring the story to life.

This product has 8 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.5 out of 5.

POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “With this edition, all that has changed. The oversize format lets the illustrations breathe. The intense, full color scheme brings everything to life.”

NEGATIVE REVIEW

There is 1 negative global rating. The negative review commented on the poor plot: “Corny dialogue (ok, let’s put the blame on the eighties), hundreds of characters, a really silly plot, stupid villains, dumb heroes… I strained throughout the pages of this monstruosity, and realized that, after all, it was no surprise that marvel kept doing these horrible crossover events during the nineties, if this is what passed for reference… go read something else or buy it, if you have trouble sleeping.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • First Marvel company crossover.
  • Successful franchise.
  • Straightforward plot.

NEGATIVE:

  • Not enough customer review ratings.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this Copper Age comic as the greatest Marvel event of all-time.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

IN UNIVERSAL AND MULTIVERSAL ANOMALIES

WHAT IS MARVEL’S SECRET WARS?

Triumphantly, Kevin Feige has revealed Phase 4-6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Incredibly, it is leading to the most important Marvel event to date: Secret Wars. Originally, the impetus for the comic was to create a new line-up of playsets for the Mattel toy line. In 1984, the Secret Wars crossover event involved a cosmic entity named the Beyonder.

In 2015, the Secret Wars sequel has been one of the most popular Marvel events to date. The premise which inspires Phase 4-6 is based on incursion events that threaten the Marvel multiverse. Let’s detail how two important series and a movie in the MCU may influence Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.

LOKI INTRODUCED KANG AS HE WHO REMAINS

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Loki finds himself in review by the Time Variance Authority. During pruning, they review his life such as the events leading to his mother’s death and Ragnarok. After embarking on missions through the timeline, they realize Time Variants are causing an impending multiversal war. Now, Loki, Mobius and an unexpected flame must stop the apocalypse.

On the hunt for the renegade Time Variant, the TVA identifies a Loki Variant that has been sabotaging the Minutemen across the Timeline. In 2050 Alabama, the TVA and Loki locate the Variant, who is a female Loki. Eventually, she identifies herself as Sylvie Laufeydottir.

Nathaniel Richards is in fact the creator of the Time Variance Authority. In fact, the agents of the TVA are themselves animatronics captured throughout the Timeline. Originally, he had created the TVA in order to prevent a multiversal war. When Loki and Sylvie discover him, they are given the ultimatum to kill him and unleash the variants or take over in his place.

WHAT IF…? UNLEASHES THE TIME VARIANT KANG THE CONQUEROR

In the multiverse, the Watcher observes from the Nexus of All Realities and narrates its evolution but his race and he have sworn to never interfere. With the death of He Who Remains, the time variant Kang The Conqueror has been unleashed on the multiverse. As alternate timelines form, Watcher must recruit a new Guardians of the Multiverse to stop the threat.

The premise of What If…? is what would happen if Peggy Carter instead of Steve Rogers had become Captain America. When Rogers’ experiment fails, Peggy Carter takes the Super Soldier serum and becomes Captain Carter.

In an alternate timelines, Christine Palmer dies in a car accident. In order to change the past, Doctor Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto and turns to dark magic. He becomes Doctor Supreme.

On an alternate Earth, a young Thor grows up without his half-brother Loki. Also, he never learns to be a hero and organizes rowdy parties across the cosmos. When partying on Earth, he is intercepted by Captain Marvel. A rumble follows.

MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS BEGINS THE MULTIVERSAL WAR

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Multiversal war begins. In order to stop the events from Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange must travel the Marvel multiverse, protect America Chavez and prevent the incursions from parallel universes.

At the beginning of the movie, America Chavez and an alternate Doctor Strange, perhaps Doctor Supreme, are being hunted by a monster. When she arrives in the prime universe, she tells Doctor Strange and Wong that the monster is hunting her because of her powers of dimensional travel across the Marvel multiverse.

Really, Scarlet Witch is the villain in the movie. At the end of WandaVision, she turns to Chaos Magic. In fact, she discovers America Chavez and sends the monster after her across the multiverse in order to steal her multiversal powers. And she intends to use the powers to travel to the dimension where her two children are being held captive.

WHO ARE THE CELESTIALS?

Originally, the Celestials are a race of extra-dimensional gods. Importantly, they created the Prime Marvel Universe.

However, some misconceptions continue about these nigh-omnipotent beings. Let’s list five myths about the Celestials in comics, TV and movies.

COMICS, FILM AND TV: MYTH #5. THE CELESTIALS HAVE PHYSICAL BODIES

In the Eternals and Guardians of the Galaxy, the Celestials are gigantic space humanoids. In an interview, ScreenRant reveals the Celestials are 200 miles tall. Indeed, this confirms their actual size in the comics. Though, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and What If…? show that Ego can take the form of a planet and a human-sized form.

However, the Celestials’ physical bodies are actually physical constructs. In the comics, it is revealed that the Celestials’ physical bodies are constructs from extra-dimensional hyper space. In fact,  What If? Newer Fantastic Four (2008) #1, reveals the Celestials’ bodies are moved by willpower or thought.

TV AND FILM: MYTH #4. THE CELESTIALS CREATED THE SIX INFINITY STONES

Perhaps, the most correct myth. In a What If…? episode, Ultron used the Infinity Stones in order to kill Ego the Living Planet. From Avengers: Infinity War, Loki learnt from the Quarry of the Gods that the Celestials created the Six Infinity Stones.

In reality, the Celestials created the Six Singularities before the birth of the Marvel universe. From the Six Singularities, the Six Infinity Stones of infinite power were born. In Guardians of the Galaxy, Eson the Searcher uses the Space Stone to destroy a planet.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #3. THE CELESTIALS ONLY CREATED THE ETERNALS AND THE DEVIANTS

From the Eternals movie, it appears the Celestials only created two races on Earth: the Deviants and the Eternals. In reality, as space Gods, the Celestials created and evolved multiple races throughout the universe.

In the comics, the Celestials are responsible for genetic experiments on homo superior, the mutant race on Marvel Earth. As matter of fact, part of the reason why they are viewed as villains is because they created the X-Men villain named Apocalypse. More on why, the Celestials may or may not be villains.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #2. THE CELESTIALS CREATED THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

Really, this myth is both correct and incorrect. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials created the Big Bang with the Six Singularities. In fact, the Marvel universe is an endless cycle of rebirth and destruction. However, the Celestials have created only one universe in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In Marvel comics, the Celestials have created the Marvel multiverse. Indeed, they shaped the early cosmos allowing for the multiverse to be created. Though, Secret Wars shows that the Beyonders may have created the Marvel multiverse. In fact, we argue Pre-Retcon Beyonder as Marvel’s God.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #1. THE CELESTIALS ARE VILLAINS

In both Marvel comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials appear as cosmic villains. Though this is correct in the Eternals movie, this myth needs explanation. In reality, the Celestials are both creators and destroyers. Since they created the universe or multiverse, they function according to the laws of evolution.

In the comics, Living Tribunal who is the Cosmic Judge, is responsible for creating and destroying universes to maintain balance. Similarly, the Celestials obey the cycles of creation and destruction of the universe. In effect, they are Gods or Abstracts in the Power Hierarchy. In Thor vs Celestial, we show Exitar the Celestial when he judges the planet Pangoria.

DC vs Marvel: Lex Luthor vs Doctor Doom, Who Is The Better Villain? (Comics, TV and Film)

 

*Our website can officially be translated in 10 different languages.
*Look for the dropdown menu on the right sidebar with English and the British flag.
*On mobile, scroll to the footer section of the page.

DC VS MARVEL

DEATH BATTLE!

IN SUPERVILLAINS

THE SMARTEST HUMANS AT DC AND MARVEL

*Let’s commemorate the 82nd anniversary of Lex Luthor’s first appearance.

In January, we ranked the formidabilities in a potential Darkseid vs Thanos battle. And we looked at the characters in continuity at their highest powers: Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet and Darkseid with the Anti-Life Equation.

In February, we compared both characters to find out who is the better villain. Now, this month, we compare two other A-list villains at DC and Marvel to find out who is the better villain.

At DC and Marvel, Lex Luthor and Doctor Doom are definitely the two smartest humans in their respective universes. For his part, Lex Luthor has planned world domination while Doctor Doom has conquered the power of God on multiple occasions.

To this end, we have come up with a villainy score that compares both characters in eight categories: Sales, Origin Story, Character Evolution, Cast, Quality Opponents, Villainy, Power, Popularity. Before we compare our villains let’s list some rules.

  1. The Villainy Score is rated out of 8 points.
  2. For Doctor Doom, we list only the Earth-616 continuity and for Lex Luthor Post-Crisis, Post-Flashpoint and Rebirth.
  3. Since we are comparing Sales and Popularity, we include the villains’ performance in other media and their Google Search Results.
  4. For Power, we list their highest achievements across Earth-616, Post-Crisis, Post-Flashpoint and Rebirth continuities.

So, let’s compare Lex Luthor and Doctor Doom in the villainy department.

VILLAINY SCORES

Lex Luthor. DC Comics.

VILLAINY SCORE: 5

SALES

For sales, Lex Luthor outperforms Doctor Doom. In the comic medium, it appears the Metropolis businessman lags behind the Baron of Iron.

In 2005, Lex Luthor: The Man of Steel #1 ranked 38 in unit sales on the Top Comics of March 2005. At the same time, Lex Luthor performs very well as POTUS in Our Worlds at War whose first issue ranked 19th in unit sales and sold 59157 issues on the Top Comics of July 2001.

In animation, Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited have created the best portrayals of Lex Luthor. And to this day, Michael Rosenbaum remains the most celebrated version of Lex Luthor with Smallville. And the Total Estimated Domestic Video Sales for the series is $151,375,254.

In the movie department, the controversial Batman v Superman movie still gave us a more significant live-action adaptation than Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Overall, BvS earned $855 million internationally.

Doctor Doom. Marvel Comics.

VILLAINY SCORE: 3

SALES

Though Doctor Doom stars in more event comics with prominent roles, he performs less than his counterpart in the different media.

In 1984, Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars ranked as Marvel’s first company-wide crossover event and the top-selling comic year-long with 250000 copies sold. In 2015, Doctor Doom becomes God-doom in Secret Wars whose first issue ranked 1st in unit sales with 527618 sold on the Top Comics of May 2015.

With animation, the Spider-Man: The Animated Series and The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have created the best portrayals of Doom. However, very few portrayals have had the lasting impact that his counterpart has had.

In the movie department, the controversial live-action adaptation of Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer was not successful. Overall, FF earned $289,480,691 internationally.

ADVANTAGE: LEX LUTHOR

 

LEX LUTHOR’S FIRST APPEARANCE IN ACTION COMICS (1940) #23 IS COLLECTED IN SUPERMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE OMNIBUS VOL. 1

DOCTOR DOOM’S FIRST APPEARANCE IN FANTASTIC FOUR (1962) #5 IS COLLECTED IN ESSENTIAL FANTASTIC FOUR, VOL. 1 (MARVEL ESSENTIALS)

ADVANTAGE: DOCTOR DOOM

CHARACTER EVOLUTION

In many respects, Lex Luthor is definitely one of the most interesting character at DC Comics.

Post-Crisis, his motivations have centered on either destroying Superman’s reputation or besting him through his lackeys. What makes Lex Luthor work is that he genuinely believes himself to be humanity’s savior by virtue of his superior intelligence.

During Dark Nights: Death Metal, Lex may have finally become good. In fact, he proved why he is the smartest human in the DC multiverse by creating the weapon in the World Forge that created Truth Incarnate Wonder Woman.

CHARACTER EVOLUTION

In addition, Doctor Doom has shown he is Marvel’s Greatest Villain. Really, during the first Secret Wars, he stole Beyonder’s power becoming the Supreme Being of the Universe.

Similarly, Doom believes himself to be humanity’s savior. In Doomwar, he has beheld a potential future where he is Earth’s ruler.

However, like other Marvel villains, Doctor Doom ultimately knows he is not fit for ultimate power. Hence, his flaw proves his undoing in the end.

ADVANTAGE: LEX LUTHOR

*Read our product review.

CAST

Really, this is where Lex Luthor truly separates himself.

Indeed, as a businessman and the smartest man on DC Earth, Lex Luthor has proven a better leader. In fact, he showed how an A-list supervillain can legally become the President of the United States.

From Lexcorp, to the Injustice Gang, to the United States, even Darkseid and Perpetua, Lex Luthor is an expert at making deals.

During Our Worlds At War, he won even Superman to his cause in order to stop Imperiex.

CAST

Tragically, Doctor Doom has remained a conflicted figure. As a conqueror and world leader, he leads the sovereign nation of Latveria.

Incredibly, Doom commands a religious following and his people actually love him.

In addition, he has sought companionship often in treacherous ways though he has remained single-minded. Effortlessly, Doom could conquer the world, however, it would take manipulation and deception.

During Avengers: Emperor Doom, Doctor Doom realizes that world conquest is an illusion.

ADVANTAGE: LEX LUTHOR

QUALITY OPPONENTS

For the most part, Luthor is at a disadvantage. Indeed, most of his opponents are Cosmic Beings.

At the same time, Justice League: Darkseid War showed Lex Luthor can take on Gods or Abstracts.

QUALITY OPPONENTS

For the most part, Doctor Doom more or less ties Lex Luthor in this department.

Secret Wars showed that Doom’s Quality Opponents are properly Gods or Abstracts. In fact, Beyonder may be the God of the Marvel multiverse.

ADVANTAGE: TIE

VILLAINY

In this department, Lex Luthor may have foreshadowed the greatest evil. However, his humanity shows he can be redeemed.

With the Worlogog, Lex Luthor created an alternate future where Darkseid imposed the Anti-Life Equation on DC Earth. In a sense, this may have contributed to Final Crisis.

In Dark Nights Metal, Luthor joined forces with Perpetua who re-made the multiverse in her image. However, he redeemed himself by supplying the weapon for Truth Incarnate Wonder Woman’s victory.

VILLAINY

In this department, Doctor Doom is pure evil. In fact, he cannot be redeemed. Indeed, his faith in magic is only a masquerade for his lust for power.

In Doomwar, Doom used the purple Man to possess the will of all humans on Earth. On mutiple occasions, his lust for power caused him to steal the power of the Silver Surfer, the Watcher and Galactus.

In Secret Wars, GodDoom rules Battleworld having stolen the Beyonders’ powers. Even here, Doom’s inner darkness makes him a powerful villain.

ADVANTAGE: DOCTOR DOOM

POWER

With his Universal-Level Strength Class, Lex Luthor with the Omega Effect in Darkseid War has a score of 71.5. Though his lack of Teamwork with the JLA limits his potential. His Formidability rating is Metahuman.

To note, Lex Luthor with the Omega Effect is less powerful than Darkseid with the ALE. Which explains how he could not defeat Anti-Monitor. In fact, it takes the ALE to stand a chance though AM is at least as powerful as Darkseid with ALE.

SCORE: 71.5

FORMIDABILITY: METAHUMAN

Strength Class: Universal 84%
Weaknesses: None 100%
Quality Opponents: God or Abstract 100%
Limitations: Teamwork 67%

POWER

Though God-Doom in Secret Wars is Nigh-omnipotent in Strength Class, his Hubris and Power Dependency on Molecule Man, give him a score of 71. His Formidability rating is Metahuman.

To note, God-Doom is about as formidable as Thanos with the IG. Which explains how Black Panther was able to go toe to toe with him in Secret Wars (2016) #9. Though Doctor Doom was likely toying with him.

SCORE: 71

FORMIDABILITY: METAHUMAN

Strength Class: Nigh-Omnipotence 100%
Weaknesses: Hubris 50%
Quality Opponents: God or Abstract 100%
Limitations: Power Dependency 92%

ADVANTAGE: LEX LUTHOR

 

POPULARITY

Generally, Lex Luthor is more popular in the comic medium. In the Post-Crisis continuity alone, he boasts 789 Appearances.

However, Google Search Results yield 12,500,000 results.

POPULARITY

In order for Doctor Doom to match his popularity, we must add the Baron of Iron’s 841 Appearances to his 218 Minor Appearances.

As the winner, Google Search Results yield  98,100,000 results.

ADVANTAGE: DOCTOR DOOM

VERDICT:

Though Doctor Doom operates on a higher scale, Lex Luthor proves to be equally intelligent and a far more human villain.

Lex Luthor wins.

And that’s our ranking!

In 'New Avengers (2015) #29', the Illuminati meet the Beyonders
In New Avengers (2015) #29, the Illuminati meet the Beyonders. Marvel Comics.

Over the years, Beyonder has undergone multiple ret-cons. In New Avengers (2015) #33, part of the Time Runs Out event, we learn his new origin story:

The being known as the Beyonder is, in fact, a young member of an ancient otherworldly race known as the Beyonders. He was dragged to Earth by the super-villains geniuses group Intel by a tachyon beam meant to attract a Vibranium meteorite.

-Beyonder (Earth-616), Marvel Database

During the Marvel Now! (2012 Event), we learn of the Beyonders’ experiments on the Marvel multiverse. In every universe, they had planted a singularity under the form of Molecule Man. When Molecule Man died, his death would cause the death of the universe.

In effect, the Beyonders planned to witness the destruction of the multiverse.

In New Avengers (2015) #30, a Beyonder battles. Marvel Comics.

Notably, the Beyonders possess Nigh-omnipotence at the Multiversal scale. Importantly, their incredible power allows them to kill Living Tribunal in every universe simultaneously. Their power can defeat the cosmic entities of Eternity and the Celestials of every universe.

In New Avengers (2015) #33, Molecule Man and Doctor Doom journey across the multiverse. In order to stop the Beyonders’ plan, Owen plans to kill every version of himself 25 years in the past.

After seven years in the past, Molecule Man kills another version and an incursion eventually occurs. It is a chain reaction that causes a contraction in the multiverse. With each universe colliding with another, Earth is at the point of impact.

Though the Beyonders did not directly cause the incursion, they ultimately show how powerful their singularity is. As a living bomb, Molecule Man has the power to destroy the infinite Marvel multiverse.

Really, the Beyonders possess nigh-omnipotence: avatar creation, vast energy blasts, super strength, regeneration, super speed, dimensional travel.

In Secret Wars (2016) #9, Doctor Doom and Mister Fantastic battle in Molecule Man’s white hot room.

In Secret Wars (2016) #9, Doctor Doom and Mister Fantastic battle in the white hot room. Previously, Doctor Doom used Molecule Man as a bomb to steal the Beyonders’ power. After the incursions, he created Battleworld, where he reigned as God-Doom.

When Mister Fantastic defeats Doom, Molecule Man uses the Beyonders’ omnipotence to recreate a single Marvel universe. Really, this shows the Beyonders have the power to create and to destroy the Marvel universe.

WHY THE BEYONDERS ARE OVERPOWERED

THE BEYONDERS DECIMATED THE CELESTIAL HOSTS

In New Avengers (2015) #30, the Beyonders decimated the remaining Celestial hosts. Previously, Yellowjacket shrank his size to explore the universe.

Per chance, he found the Builders stumbling on a trap for an enemy. As it happens, it was laid out for the Celestials. Really, the Celestials possess Universal-Level power that can rival the Infinity Gauntlet.

THREE BEYONDERS KILL THE LIVING TRIBUNAL SIMULTANEOUSLY IN EVERY UNIVERSE

In New Avengers (2015) #30, the Beyonders killed Living Tribunal. Previously, Yellowjacket shrank his size to explore the universe.

After the Beyonders had slayed the cosmic entities, Living Tribunal appeared. Incredibly, the battle occurred in every single reality in the Marvel multiverse.

And it took three Beyonders in order to kill Living Tribunal simultaneously in every reality.

Finally, considering Living Tribunal is as powerful as Adam Warlock with the Infinity Gauntlet, the Beyonders are Nigh-Omnipotent in Energy Projection.

THE BEYONDERS BUILT ENTIRE UNIVERSES

Incredibly, the Beyonders have built entire universes.

STAN LEE’S FAVORITE VILLAIN

Doctor Doom was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Originally, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 (1962) #5.

Interviewed by leukemia survivor KJ Ricci, Stan Lee revealed Doctor Doom is his favorite supervillain. The legendary writer said he does not see Doom as a villain and would like to clear his name.

THE POWER COSMIC

DOCTOR DOOM ABSORBED GALACTUS’ + TAA II’S POWER

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, Doctor Doom steals Galactus’ Power Cosmic. Previously, Galactus absorbs the energy of Taa II. Possibly, Galactus with Taa II’s might equal the Beyonder in battle. However, using the Klaw discs, Doctor Doom siphons Galactus’ Power Cosmic.

In his new-found omnipotence, Doctor Doom’s senses expand. Really, Doom realizes his cosmic senses encompass all reality. Inside their cells, the Baron of Iron is aware of the villains’ secret thoughts and desires. Furthermore, he is aware of an intruder, Captain Marvel.

BATTLE AT THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE

Immediately, Doctor Doom battled Beyonder in the Beyond-Realm. Incredibly, the battle was so fierce that it sent shockwaves through space. In fact, Battleworld was feeling quakes as a result of the titanic battle.

However, Doctor Doom is soon overwhelmed by the Beyonder’s godly power. Desperately, the Destroyer beams an image of himself back to Battleworld. Before the assembled heroes, he asks for their powers. Hesitantly, Magneto steps forward. Quickly, he is tackled by Wasp, Hawkeye and Iron Man.

DOCTOR DOOM’S SUPREME WILLPOWER

DOCTOR DOOM DENIES DEATH

With his last ply thwarted, the tide of the battle turns against Doom. Courageously, Doctor Doom attempts to grow nearer. But, the Beyonder’s infinite power doubles his onslaught. Finally, in bursts of energy blasts, Doom’s legs are cut off and he is felled.

Tragically, the Baron of Iron feels the “cold embrace [of Mistress Death] seems imminent.”1 Defiantly, Doctor Doom rejects the Spectre. His words ring out: “Victor Von Doom must not die!”1

VICTOR VON DOOM STEALS THE BEYONDER’S POWER

With his foe defeated, Beyonder comes down to examine him. Intrigued, he peers through Doom’s life. Moreover, he dissects Doom apart, layer by layer. Proving his willpower is supreme, Doom resists the agonizing pain.

Soon, the Beyonder grows closer to his subject. Incredibly, Victor Von Doom reaches for the Beyonder’s disembodied energy. In the end, Doom steals the Beyonder’s infinite power.

PER IGN: MARVEL’S GREATEST VILLAIN

IGN’S TOP 100 COMIC BOOK VILLAINS OF ALL TIME

In 2009, IGN counted down the Top 100 Comic Book Villains Of All Time from both DC and Marvel comics. The list features some of the best villains in the two universes such as Magneto, Thanos, Black Adam and Joker. The list even ranks our own Doctor Doom.

On the list, Doctor Doom ranked number three. In 2019, IGN would rank Doctor Doom as the greatest Marvel villain of all time citing his supreme arrogance and lust for power. Let’s look at reasons why this is the case.

ORIGIN STORY

Doctor Doom’s origin story is one of tragedy and crime. Victor von Doom was born to gypsy parents. His mother dealt in the dark arts. Tragically, a bargain with Mephisto went awry and the demon claimed Victor’s mother’s soul. Victor studied magic in Latveria then science in America to reclaim his mother’s soul.

Victor Von Doom, Reed Richards and Ben Grimm studied at State University, New York. Apparently, Ben may have been responsible for Victor becoming Doctor Doom. Combining magic and science, Victor’s experiment failed and his face was scarred. Donning armor and mask, he became… Doctor Doom.

CHARACTER MOTIVATION

What makes Doom a great villain is the fact that he originally was not a villain. His dedication to saving his mother is understandable though the means he uses are abhorrent. In many respects, Doom is a product of his upbringing: tortured, lonely and violent.

Doom’s central motivation is his belief that the world can find peace only under Doomworld. In many respects, this is the belief of all tyrants which shows that Doom’s belief actually stems from those tragic circumstances that developed his lust for power. Why is Doom’s Marvel greatest villain? He has conviction and unmatched willpower.

VILLAIN OR ANTI-HERO?

Early stories showcase Doctor Doom as an exclusive Fantastic Four villain. IGN even considers him a fifth member of the Fantastic Four as its necessary antagonist. What makes Doom an interesting villain are his motivations. Ultimately, though he always seeks ultimate power as his goal, his purposes are always devious.

Of course, his final goal is world domination but his methods are infinite. As head of state of Latveria, Doom uses the vast resources at his disposal to do war against the Fantastic Four and Marvel Earth. In some portrayals Doctor Doom has allied himself with the forces of good to face a common enemy. In “Infinity Gauntlet,” Doctor Doom even allied himself to the heroes who banded together to fight Thanos. However, it is always for a devious purpose.

POWERS: SCIENCE AND MAGIC

Doctor Doom is one of the most brilliant minds on Marvel Earth, rivaling Mister Fantastic in scientific expertise. A rarity, Doom has managed to unite both science and magic, upgrading his armor with spells, cosmic energy and other sources of power. What makes Doom so dangerous is his skill in both departments and his viciousness, since he is willing to go to any lengths in order to further his power.

Multiple times, Doctor Doom has succeeded in achieving ultimate power. Doctor Doom managed to steal the Beyonder’s power and become the Supreme Being of the Marvel Universe. In the “Avengers: Emperor Doom” storyline, Doom became the benevolent Emperor Doom who succeeded in bringing peace on Earth with the Purple Man’s psycho-prism. In the “Secret Wars” event, Doom stole the Beyonders’ power again, this time, to re-make reality in his image. Indeed, a feat not even Thanos has achieved.

Fan Theory: Miles Morales In The Mainstream Marvel Universe Means The Ultimate Universe Was Rebooted After Secret Wars

 

FAN THEORY

In 'Secret Wars' (2016) #9, Doctor Doom and Mister Fantastic battle in Molecule Man's white hot room.

IN UNIVERSAL AND MULTIVERSAL ANOMALIES

“SECRET WARS” REBOOTED THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

In “Secret Wars” (2015), the Marvel multiverse is being destroyed by the multiversal entities known as the Beyonders. Only two remaining universes remain: the main Marvel universe and the Ultimate universe. In the Beyond, Doctor Doom meets with the Beyonders in order to save the remaining universes. Originlly, Molecule Man was designed by the Beyonders as a bomb that would destroy the multiverse. Using Molecule Men as bombs, Doctor Doom and Doctor Strange killed the Beyonders and stole their power.

During the incursions between Earth-616 and Earth-1610, Mister Fantastic built the Future Foundation Life Rafts to transport the survivors to the incursion points. Suffering a hull breach, they nevertheless survived and were transported to Battleworld, created by Doctor Doom. On Battleworld, Doctor Doom was worshipped as God on a world of controlled chaos. There, the Life Raft and the Cabal opposed Doom’s reign. In the end, Doom was defeated and Molecule Man destroyed Battleworld, rebooting the mainstream Marvel universe. In the end, the Ultimate universe was no more.

MILES MORALES JOINED THE MAINSTREAM MARVEL UNIVERSE

In ‘Secret Wars’ (2015) #6, the Maker’s and Reed Richards plans are set into motion. Miles Morales and Spider-Man go off to the White Room to find Doom’s source of power. There, in front of Molecule Man’s statue, they find Valeria, Doctor Doom’s daughter on Battleworld but who is actually Reed Richards’ daughter. After a brief discussion with her, the two Spider-Men enter the white room. Inside, they find Molecule Man there who asks them if they brought him something to eat. Surprisingly, Miles Morales takes out a three week-old hamburger from his pocket and gives it to Molecule Man.

Fully fed, Spider-Man asks Molecule Man about Doctor Doom’s power source. Molecule Man tells them they are looking at him. In ‘Secret Wars’ (2016) #9, Miles Morales has a flashback to that moment. In the white room, Molecule Man thanks him for the burger. It is implied that Molecule Man saved Miles Morales and his family in the new mainstream Marvel universe. In the present, the two Spider-Men are on a rooftop and after Peter checks if Miles has done his homework, the two Spider-Men swing into adventure to go beat up on bad guys.

VENOM WARNS THE MAKER SEEKS TO RE-CREATE THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSE

In ‘Venom’ (2021) #200, the Ultimate universe resurfaces. Now, Eddie Brock has become the new King in Black and is testing his super powers. After testing his omniscience, he notes the only one escaping his power is the Maker, Reed Richards’ evil counterpart from the Ultimate universe. Having obtained an artificial symbiote from the Ultimate universe, the Maker used Venom‘s symbiote to augment and heal his psyche.

Able to travel between dimensions, the Maker returned to the Ultimate universe, which was destroyed. Then, Eddie uses his super powers to meet simultaneously the Avengers, Quiet Council of Krakoa, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Surfer and other groups to warn them tat the Maker will likely return to conquer Earth-616. In fact, this task has been commissioned him by the Interdimensional Council of Reeds. In all likelihood, it is possible the Ultimate universe was rebooted after “Secret Wars.”

Power Level Explained: Is Pre-Retcon Beyonder The God Of The Marvel Multiverse?

IN POWER LEVEL EXPLAINED

The Beyonder may be the most mysterious entity in the Marvel cosmic hierarchy. Is he a god? A cosmic being? A Cosmic Cube? Let’s look at the reasons why Beyonder may be the closest version to Marvel’s God!

“I AM FROM BEYOND”

When ‘Secret Wars’ (1984) exploded into the pages of Marvel comics, it was the first crossover event in Marvel continuity. From the first pages, the Beyonder claimed to be “from beyond.”1 He made a tempting proposition to the heroes and villains.

In 'Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars' (1984) #1, Beyonder introduces himself to the heroes and villains in majestic fashion.

In casual fashion, the Beyonder then went on to destroy a galaxy and rebuff Galactus and Doctor Doom. He created Battleworld out of the remains of nearby planets where heroes and villains would battle in order to win their hearts’ desires. Who is this Beyonder?

In reality, the Beyonder stems from the Beyond-Realm.

Read on!

The Beyond Realm was originally a being known as the Beyonder it was an infinite realm beyond the Marvel Multiverse (or Omniverse), and was the sum of everything outside the multiverse and that the Marvel Multiverse (or Omniverse) was a drop in the sea compared to the Beyond-realm. Making it infinitely bigger than the known Marvel Multiverse (Or Omniverse) at this time it is believed Here, that the Beyonder (Originally) is/was the all-powerful God, Creator, Ruler, and Inhabitant. He is everything and everyone in this realm as everything is him. His mere thought became reality anything he dreamed of was his and his alone with him in this Plane of Existence it would be utterly nothing.

WHY PRE-RETCON BEYONDER IS MARVEL’S GOD

HIS POWER IS IMAGINATION

In 'Secret Wars' (1985) II, Beyonder contemplates whether to destroy the Marvel multiverse.

In ‘Secret Wars’ (1985) II, Beyonder arrives on Earth. His purpose is to investigate the human feeling of desire. He is met with incomprehension and conflict follows with Earth’s heroes and villains. In one issue, Beyonder contemplates destroying the Marvel universe and everything in it. As he thinks, his thoughts cause universal disturbances. This shows Beyonder’s power is imagination.

PRE-RETCON BEYONDER SEEKS HOMAGE

In 'Secret Wars II' (1985), the Beyond controls animate life and inanimate objects to pay him homage.

In ‘Secret Wars II’ (1985), Beyonder extends his control to inanimate and animate life. Controlling every molecule and atom on Earth, Beyonder wants all things to pay him homage. How divine is that?

PRE-RETCON BEYONDER CAN DESTROY THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

In 'Secret Wars II' (1985), Beyonder kills Death.

In ‘Secret Wars II’ (1985), Beyonder shows an impressive display of power. In front of the Magistrati, he gives Death a potion that kills her. An impressive feat since Death constitutes the semi-covered face of Living Tribunal and represents Vengeance. Furthermore, none of the Magistrati intervene to prevent this death, fearing Beyonder’s power. Finally, Death herself is a Multiversal entity.

STAN LEE’S FAVORITE VILLAIN

Doctor Doom was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Originally, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 (1962) #5.

Interviewed by leukemia survivor KJ Ricci, Stan Lee revealed Doctor Doom is his favorite supervillain. The legendary writer said he does not see Doom as a villain and would like to clear his name.

RESPECT DOCTOR DOOM!

DESTINED TO RULE THE WORLD

In “Doomwar”, Doctor Doom manages to steal the Vibranium from T’Challa’s Vibranium Vault. Before he can claim what his heart truly seeks, Doctor Doom must pass a test. He must prove to the god Bast that he is truly pure of heart. Uncannily, Doctor Doom does pass the test.

Doctor Doom opens his soul and shows Bast he has faith. With his sorcery, he has peered into millions of possible futures and has seen that the only future where humanity is at peace, is Doomworld. Perhaps, Doctor Doom is pure evil.

 

In 'Doomwar' (2010) #3, Doctor Doom tells Bast he has gazed into a hundred thousand futures, and the only one where humanity survives is with Doctor Doom as its ruler.

SORCERER SUPREME CONTENDER

Few beings on Marvel Earth are equally adept at science and magic. Using sorcery and tech, Doctor Doom lives in both world. A super-genius, Doctor Doom once contended for the title of Sorcerer Supreme against Doctor Strange.

In ‘Doctor Strange & Doctor Doom: Triumph & Torment’, Genghis tests the most powerful sorcerers on Earth for the title of Sorcerer Supreme. In the trial, it comes down to a final showdown between Doom and Strange. Ultimately, Doctor Doom fails the trial and only for Doctor Strange to use his astral form free Genghis’ spirit from his crystal and to be declared Sorcerer Supreme.

In "Doctor Strange And Doctor Doom: Triumph And Torment", Doctor Strange and Doctor Doom contend for the title of Sorcerer Supreme.

SUPREME BEING OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE

In ‘Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars’ (1985) #10, Doctor Doom stole Galactus’ and Taa II’s power in order to battle Beyonder. In the Beyonder’s Realm, it was a hopeless battle. Finally, Doctor Doom was defeated.

Miraculously, in a contest of willlpower, Doom resisted the Beyonder’s dissection, overpowered him, and stole his power. For a short while, Doctor Doom became the Supreme Being of the Marvel Universe.
