Doctor Doom is a character who appears in Marvel Comics publications. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four #5 (July 1962) wearing his trademark metal mask and green cloak. The son of a gypsy witch, Doom is a recurring supervillain, arch enemy of the Fantastic Four, and leader of the fictional nation of Latveria. He is both a genius inventor and a sorcerer, and has served as a primary antagonist and occasional protagonist in the Marvel continuity since his creation. Doom's most famous opponents include the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the Avengers, the X-Men, Punisher, Blade, Iron Man, and even Silver Surfer.
Doctor Doom has been featured in other Marvel-endorsed media such as feature films; video games; television series and merchandise such as action figures and trading cards.
Doctor Doom has been part of the MVC roster since Marvel Super Heroes (1995).

Just an Assist Character
"Can Doom... spend the night?"
Doom first appeared at Max's home during an episode of "The Online Warrior" and asked Max if he could spend the night. Max was reluctant to let him stay (he had previously spent the night and apparently owed Max twenty dollars) but eventually he convinced Max when he complained about being nothing more than an "assist character."
Max sat Doom down and taught him how to be a better character in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Doom's concern was that he was great in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, and he was happy to see that - in the right hands - he was quite a formidable foe in Marvel 3 as well. His confidence strengthened, Doom left Max's house after helping himself to the yogurt in Max's refrigerator.
Rivalry with Albert Wesker
In a later episode of "The Online Warrior" which was focused on the character Deadpool, Doom returned to Max's unexpectedly during the latter's celebration of reaching First Lord. Max was bewildered at Doom's return, but Doom told him "he's coming" - warning Max about the impending arrival of Albert Wesker. Max fainted, and Doom struggled to wake him up as the episode ended.
Eventually, when Albert Wesker arrived at Max's house to learn how to exploit his own skills in Marvel 3, Doom appeared from upstairs, brushing his mask with a toothbrush. He and Wesker immediately faced each other in a tense stare down, but Max managed to calm them both down. Doom stuck around as Max taught Wesker all he could.
As Wesker prepared to leave, he announced his plan to use the data he gathered from the video game to spread Uroboros to every house in the United States and eventually the world. Doom, claiming humanity belonged to him, rose to stop Wesker and a fierce battle ensued. Wesker eventually beat Doom nearly to death, when Max noticed that the characters in-game were acting out the same fight on his television as that going on in his very living room. Max quickly grabbed his fightstick and entered a command for Doom, allowing Doom to hit Wesker with a surprise attack of the Photon Array (referred to by Doom as "The Finger Lasers"). This weakened Wesker long enough for Doom to use his Doom's Time hyper combo to finish Wesker off. Wesker vanished in a puff of smoke and Doom collapsed to the ground, exhausted from the fight.
After the battle, Doom asked Max if he could spend the night, and Max was happy to let his new ally stay.
Romance with X-23
When X-23 came to Max's house to track Wesker, Doom fell almost immediately in love with her and desperately sought to win her over. Despite some tips from Max, Doom was initially unsuccessful and X-23 was disgusted by his attempts at flirting with her. (he offered to show her his "hidden missile") However, X-23 came around when Max told her that Doom defeated Wesker (albeit with his help) and when her training with Max was complete, she confessed her love for Doom and they planned to run off together. Before they left Max's house, X-23 pulled off Doom's mask in order to give him a kiss - and screamed in horror at his disfigured face before leaving him behind, heartbroken. Doom sought out comfort from Max and his dog Ammy, but the best Max could do was suggest a skin graft.
Rescuing Jill from Wesker
One night as Max and Doom played Marvel 3, the lights in the entire house suddenly went out. When the lights came back on, Jill Valentine was standing behind them and Wesker appeared, much to Max and Doom's surprise. Doom rose up to fight Wesker, but Wesker had anticipated it and struck him to the floor before holding Max at gunpoint. Wesker had Jill under mind control via a device on her chest, and demanded that Max teach Jill so that she would be the perfect weapon, and Max remorsefully complied.
Throughout the ordeal, Doom referenced Jill's old days in Marvel 2, but she didn't seem to remember what he was talking about. Wesker discouraged her from talking to Max and Doom. At one point, the rivalry between Doom and Wesker resurfaced and the two engaged in an "Epic Rap Battle of MVC3" (a parody of "Epic Rap Battles of History"). Once Jill's training with Max was complete, Wesker went to make a phone call regarding the launch of his Uroboros missiles. Seeing an opportunity to thwart his evil plans, Max told Doom to distract Wesker and Jill to buy him some time. Doom agreed, and challenged Jill to a fight while Wesker was on the phone. Jill had little trouble beating Doom down while Max frantically searched through his collection of video games. Wesker only payed attention to the fight long enough to see that Jill was handling herself fine, and returned to his phone call. As Jill lifted Doom into the air and prepared to finish him with a single strike, Max called her attention to the TV and revealed that he had fired up his old copy of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 for the Sega Dreamcast.
Jill dropped Doom as she looked at her old S.T.A.R.S. self on the screen in awe. Approaching the TV, she touched the screen and had flash-backs to her life before being mind-controlled by Wesker. As her memories returned, she broke the device off her chest, freeing herself from Wesker's control. She hugged Doom and told him that she was sorry, and then instructed both Max and Doom on what to do to stop Wesker.
Max approached Wesker, striking him in the face with a MadCatz Tournament Edition Arcade Stick, temporarily breaking Wesker's jaw. Wesker popped it back into place and moved to attack Max, who retreated behind Jill and Doom. Not realizing Jill was no longer under his control, he asked her why she hadn't killed Max and Doom yet. Doom caught him off guard with The Finger Lasers, stunning Wesker long enough for Jill to put him in a choke hold. As Wesker struggled, Doom told Max to stand back as he prepared a powerful snap of his fingers - the result of which caused Wesker and Jill to vanish into thin air. Doom told Max it had been Jill's idea, and that he sent Wesker back into Resident Evil 5 to relive the cutscene where Chris and Sheva blow him up with rocket launchers. Jill had also been sent back, to the moment where she is finally reunited with her old partner, Chris.
The Cursed Disc
"That game is so February 2011! Doom's got something better for you!"
On October 5th, 2011, Doom revealed to Max that he had acquired a copy of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, which wasn't due to be released for over another month. When Max asked how he had got it, Doom told him that he had purchased it from Dormammu, having paid the evil being with Bison Dollars. As Doom opened the case for the first time, a ghostly green mist came out of it and a cryptic piece of parchment covered in strange symbols fell to the floor. Doom translated the parchment for Max, and they read that if they didn't master the twelve new characters, Galactus would scorch the earth. Doom dismissed the parchment and they began to play the game.
As they played, Strider Hiryu suddenly appeared behind them. Doom was ecstatic to see his old friend, but Strider didn't seem to remember him at all. Max decided to remind Strider of who he was by mastering him in-game, and blamed Doom for this mishap since he paid Dormammu with worthless Bison Dollars instead of a more viable currency like the United States dollar. With a little help from Doom, Max retrained Strider, and mastered Hawkeye in the process, as Max and Strider agreed Hawkeye would be a good character to team Strider with. Doom hoped Strider would stay, but Strider received orders via a hidden earpiece and told Doom that he had to leave. Doom was sad to see Strider go, but agreed to help Max master the other characters.
Just then all the lights in Max's house went out and Galactus appeared on the TV screen, promising that no matter how hard they trained, they could not prepare themselves for him.
Mastering the New Characters
Doom helped Max continue to master the new characters in Ultimate Marvel 3. On October 12th, 2011, Max was turned into Ghost Rider as a result of the cursed disc. Doom was at first terrified of Ghost Rider, but the two quickly became friends and drank beers as they played the game. Ghost Rider claimed to know of Max, but didn't seem aware that he actually was Max. Doom offered Ghost Rider to join his team, but Ghost Rider turned down the offer in hopes of finding a darker character to work with, like Firebrand. At that point, Doom and Ghost Rider mastered Firebrand in-game, and Ghost Rider left to go battle injustice. Doom walked Ghost Rider out, and when he returned indoors, found Max sitting on the couch, slightly burned up. Max had no recollection of becoming Ghost Rider.
On October 19th, 2011, Wesker reappeared unexpectedly (perhaps a result of the cursed disc). Doom, Max and Wesker were all alarmed by the situation, and although Max and Doom were prepared to fight, Wesker told them that his plans had collapsed after Jill had left him. He claimed Doom and Max were the only friends he had, and despite Doom's protest, Max offered to let Wesker help them master Nemesis. Wesker communicated with Nemesis through his cell phone, but at one point he dropped the phone and Doom secretly recovered it. As Max and Wesker mastered Doctor Strange, Doom snuck off to snoop through Wesker's phone, and saw numerous villains in Wesker's contacts list, including Galactus. When a voice mail from another villain came through, Doom listened in and heard the words "Deliver Nemesis complete and eliminate the Online Warrior [Max] or else no deal!" Doom returned next to Max and Wesker on the couch as the two laughed together, hitting it off for the first time as friends. Doom played the vociemail so that Max and Wesker could both hear it. Wesker prepared to explain his affiliation with Galactus, but suddenly moved to fatally strike Max. Doom snapped his fingers quickly, saving Max by sending Wesker into the TV. Wesker pounded the TV screen from in-game, demanding to be let out. He then realized he was no longer in his usual black attire, but in his old S.T.A.R.S. uniform. Nemesis then mistook Wesker for a member of S.T.A.R.S. and devoured him, much to Max's disgust and Doom's amusement.
On October 26th, 2011, Doom received a summons to appear in court to face charges of fraud, espionage, and crimes against humanity. Doom was alarmed, not knowing what to do, but Max suggested they use the cursed disc to help him out. Max used the game to summon the attorney Phoenix Wright, and the three were whisked away to an Ace Attorney-styled courthouse. As Phoenix Wright and Doom presented their case to the Judge, Max mastered Phoenix Wright in-game. When Doom called forth Wesker and Ammy as witnesses of character, the plan backfired as both testified that he was untrustworthy and/or dangerous. When Phoenix Wright called Iron Fist to the stand, Max mastered the character in-game and this was completely unhelpful to Doom's case. Ultimately, Phoenix Wright was able to get the Judge to drop the charges against Doom based on Doom's status as monarch of Latveria. Thanks to Doom's diplomatic immunity, he was released. With a snap of his fingers, Doom returned himself and Max to the house - where they then received Phoenix Wright's hefty bill.
On November 1st, 2011, an exhausted Doom looked outside Max's house to see Firebrand scorching the surrounding area. Doom and Max had been spending all their time working on mastering the new characters, and the fatigue was finally showing on them. Soon after Max woke up, Vergil appeared in the room. He threatened to wipe out humanity if Max didn't make him as good as his twin brother, Dante (Max mistakenly referred to Dante as Vergil's half-brother). Max trained Vergil and at one point Doom directed a "your mom" joke at Vergil, upsetting the half-demon as his own mother is deceased. As Doom attempted to apologize to Vergil to curb his anger, Max mastered the character Nova. This didn't make him feel any better, nor did Doom saying that he liked him better than Dante (because he "at least keeps his shirt on"). Soon, Doom offered up an amulet as a token of peace between him and Vergil. Vergil mistook it for his Perfect Amulet, and took it before disappearing to go destroy humanity. Doom then told Max that the amulet had been a fake he had made as part of an art project, and revealed the real amulet to still be in his possession. Doom casually tossed the amulet behind the couch and it broke in an explosion of light. Max told Doom that he may just be humanity's accidental hero.
On November 8th, 2011, Doom came into Max's house to find Rocket Raccoon sitting on the couch. He called Max downstairs, and Max realized that they were close to finally mastering the new roster and thwarting Galactus. Doom and Rocket Raccoon exchanged insults throughout the day as Max mastered Rocket Raccoon in-game, and at Rocket Raccoon's request for a battle photographer, Frank West. Doom and Rocket Raccoon's insults finally escalated into a fight, and as the two duked it out in the living room, Galactus appeared on Max's TV. Max fought Galactus in-game using a team consisting of Strider, Ghost Rider and Vergil. As Doom continued fighting Rocket Raccoon, the two ran into a wall, knocking Doom unconscious and trapping Rocket Raccoon under his back. Rocket Raccoon struggled to free himself as Max defeated Galactus, and Rocket Raccoon suddenly faded away.
Doom came to, and as he and Max stared at the TV in awe of their victory, the cursed game disc vanished in a puff of green mist, and the TV displayed classic MVC3's title screen. Doom complained about losing his buffs and Strider, but Max reminded him the real game was due out in only a week. Doom and Max decided that to pass the time, they'd go first-to-five in Marvel 3.
Showdown with Deadpool
"The power to change everything?"
Doom had a dream about his peaceful life with X-23, but he realized that this is never going to happen and suddenly woke up and heard Wesker's pleads to get him out of Max's TV, but turned it off. Max appeared in the living room and saw a bottle of Doom Equis, and when he tried it, he said that it tastes like "a battery acid... and butt". Doom and Max started to argue about Max's broken Arcade Stick, when somebody tossed a fake grenade inside. Guys hid behind the couch, and when they decided to watch what's happening, Deadpool appeared behind them. He said that he has a bone with Max to pick, because he [Max] left him out of Season 1. Doom suggested that training with Deadpool is going to be awesome.
After analysis of his gameplay, Deadpool forgot his script and accidentally found the Doom Equis bottle. After trying it, he said that it tastes like butt, and Doom snapped his fingers to send him away twice, but Deadpool teleported back.
When Max finished to talk about Deadpool's mobility, Doom and "The Merc With a Mouth" started to argue who's the best, and they were ready for a rap battle, but Max said this is not going to happen.
After the guys saw Deadpool's specials in action, they found a white speech box behind them. Max saw that something is written on it, and Deadpool read it. It appeared that M.O.D.O.K. placed a huge bounty on Max's head. When Max thought that Doom and Deadpool are going to kill him, Deadpool organized an internet poll to decide, should he kill Max or not.
When the guys recieved the results, they discovered that most of people voted to kill Max, and Deadpool shot him dead. A grief stricken Doom left Max's house and started to remember the best moments of his life with Max. He walked into an alley and found Max's sketchbook he [Doom] tossed out of the window during Doom's Assist Me! episode. At that moment Doom realized that he has power to change everything and rewound time back to the moment when guys received the results, and when Deadpool was reading it, Doom snapped his fingers making the results to change, allowing Max to live.
Guys started to learn Deadpool's Hypers and combos, but they were interrupted. Deadpool opened the door and saw two guys that asked to sign a petition for adding new characters for UMVC3, but when he learned that they were doing this to get Mega Man, he ruthlessly killed them.
Max challenged Deadpool to play MVC3, and after they finished, Deadpool decided to kill Max nevertheless. Doom tried to protect his friend, but he failed. But when Deadpool was about to kill Max, Wesker appeared in Max's TV and said that Deadpool's belt is loose. Deadpool accidentally pressed his teleporter the third time and exploded. A grateful Max told Doom to free Wesker, and he [Doom] did this with a bad feeling about this.
"I don't always use X-Factor, but when I do, I prefer the Finger Lasers..."
Chris Redfield visited Max's home in the midst of a zombie outbreak, with fellow B.S.A.A. agents Larry Hayes and Todd Jennings. He had come to Max unaware of the zombie outbreak, and was simply looking for clues regarding the whereabouts of Jill. Max introduced Chris to Doom, hoping that his roommate could explain where he had sent Jill during Wesker's second attack on his home.
After Chris learned a bit about his usability in Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, he discussed other mainstream games with Max and Doom, and revealed that he was nearly unaware of single-player video games. Max and Chris agreed that they both liked the Call of Duty series of first-person shooters, and Max showed off some tactical gear that he owned as well as a functional M4 carbine, much to Doom's surprise.
Later, Todd and Larry teased Chris about his possible steroid use, which Chris denied. When Doom joined in on the jests, Chris punched him in the arm and shied away from the conversation. However, it wasn't long before Chris was doing pushups in Max's living room with Larry and Todd weighing him down for some extra resistance. Doom tried to do the same, but he couldn't even lift himself from the ground.
When Max was done teaching Chris everything he could about himself in the game, Chris thanked Max for the information and admitted he actually learned quite a bit. Finally, Max and Doom began to explain how Doom reunited them (via his finger-snapping abilities) when he sent Jill into the ending cutscene from Resident Evil 5. Chris became extremely worried, saying that they trapped her in the video game. However, before they could resolve the discussion, the power went out in the apartment, because Doom forgot to pay the bill.
Chris used a chemical flare to illuminate the room, revealing that the group had been surrounded by countless zombies. The B.S.A.A. agents and Max used their firearms to push off their attackers while Doom relied on his magical abilities and armored suit (destroying the zombified Mega Man nerds in the process). Larry and Todd were both killed in the ensuing battle, but Chris managed to survive, dragging himself up from behind the couch with Doom and Max after all of the zombies had been killed and the power had come back on.
As Doom enjoyed the outcome of the battle, Chris and Max wondered how any of the zombie outbreak could have happened. Just then, Wesker entered the apartment, returning from his job interview, just in time to shoot a surviving zombie in the head, catch the group's accusing stares, and ask "What?"
Dark Phoenix Rises
"Doom doesn't work well under pressure!"
As Max and Doom are having their arguments about Wesker's disappearance, Jean passes over them, greeting them in the process. When Max attempts to continue their discussion, he wondered who came to the fridge. Doom told Max that he got them a new roommate to fill in for Wesker, adding that she is also good with pets. Jean teleports in front of them, introducing herself to Max, which rings a bell to him (even going as far as remembering Yipes' CEO 2011 reaction over Phoenix). Snapping himself back to reality, Max gets scared at the sight of the saltiest character of MvC3, getting Doom surprised that it has never happened before. As Doom goes to check over Max, he grabs Doom, explains that she destroyed MvC3, and reminds him of his many defeats at the hands of Phoenix.
Doom handles the situation... roughly, as initially, he would tour her around his (Doom's) Room, but then he adds that she is a "Fire-Breathing, Galaxy-Destroying, Level 5 b*tch from hell", and tells her to leave the house. But then, Jean, who wants a second chance, told them that she is controlling her powers well, suppressing her dark side as well. Doom agrees, but Max tries to object, due to the zombie apocalypse that happened two weeks ago. Jean, being an "Assist Me!" fan, wants help from Max to get her back in the game. As Max explained her mobility and her general moveset, Doom tries to upset Jean with an X-Men 3 movie clip, which fails with Jean telling that the movie sucked in her opinion. Max counters Doom with a clip of the Fantastic Four movie, depicting Doom as a human statue. Doom countered Max with clips of his "humiliating moments" in Con Air, Wicker Man, Ghost Rider and Vampire's Kiss (all stared Nicolas Cage). With Max out of ideas, Doom declares "Checkmate", and Max continuing on with Phoenix's Special Moves.
As he continued on with the tutorial, Doom wonders why Max never puts Phoenix in his team, with Max telling him that she was too good in MvC3, adding that it's considered "Cheap" to other players. When Max asks for the last time that Max ever picked a female fighting game character, Max avoids the topic, saying that Doom is just jealous because one of the Top tier was Phoenix. Doom chastises that he is the "Best of the best", with Phoenix asking his credentials, sparking a debate, with Phoenix gaining the upper hand, telling "she won EVO 2011."
By the time Max finished up her assists, Jean feels her powers coming back. Max tries to calm Jean down, failing because Jean thinks she is the "Most hated character of the game", with Doom teases her to "unleash Dark Phoenix" and not worrying because of the nerfs she received in UMvC3. With Jean losing control of her powers, Dark Phoenix is born, unleashing fire over the house. Max, in panic, asks Doom to teleport them some place safe, but Doom can't due to his power not working under pressure.
As the apartment still in flames, Doom wants pity from Dark Phoenix, but she denies pity from him and starts choking Doom. Doom desperately starts to name out Professor X, Wolverine and Cyclops to calm her dark powers, and succeeds as Jean falls down unconscious, her dark side suppressed. With the apartment still on fire, Max and Doom scramble to put it out; Max putting out the Living Room fire while Doom uses Photon Array (or "The Finger Lasers."). After the fire was put out by Doom's Finger Snap, Jean blames herself because of her powers. Max forgives Jean and continues on with her hyper moves.
When Max is done with her Hyper moves, Doom makes fun of Jean's psychic abilities, which doesn't hurt even a bit. With that, Max dares her to read his innermost desires. With Max done, and getting it right, Doom wishes her luck, as he is "a closed book". Jean teases Doom with herself and X-23 naked, and silence ensues. The Director announces "Cut!" as the crew prepares for Doom's innermost desire, but Max cuts that one out. Silence enters again as one of his assistants asks the Director if "he should stick him?". The Director, in disappointment, removes his glasses and sits down on the couch with the cast (the Prop Guy pops out behind the couch, in disbelief that the scene was cut.). Doom excitedly sees "Larry", but is told to shut up by the Director. He continues on that despite some problems, he is disappointed that the "gorgeous naked chick" scene gets cut, but Max adds that he can't add it on his YouTube account, reasons self-explanatory. The Director still moves on to film the show, despite the disappointment, and Max continues on with her combos.
With her tutorial done, and last laughs together, Max asks Jean on Wesker's whereabouts, but Jean needs something Wesker used in the past (which was his apron in Assist Me! Chris). While Jean scans for Wesker's current location, she announces that it WASN'T Wesker's doing in the zombie apocalypse, clearing out his name. Jean then adds that the T-virus was unleashed by Taskmaster, which Max thinks it's impossible because Taskmaster is just a mercenary and Doom adds it's M.O.D.O.K.'s doing. When Jean tries to scan further who is responsible, she hears voices and laughter and, in disbelief, looks to Doom. Jean faints and disappears.
Three on Three Showdown
"Playtime is over, Tony. Now get the f*** outta my house!"
Doom was terrified that someone powerful wanted to get rid of him and that Taskmaster was going after him and tried to run away, but Max has offered him to learn more about Taskmaster and use this experience against him.
Later Strider appeared on the couch and offered his help to Max and Doom, and together they have learned about Taskmaster's Hyper Combos. The villains appeared and were about to kill them, but suddenly Wesker appeared and told Max to learn more about Taskmaster when he, Doom and Strider will take on the villains. Wesker shot M.O.D.O.K. in the gem on his forehead, knocking him out and threw Doom and Strider out of his way to protect them form Taskmaster's bullets. Then he quickly defeated Deadpool. Taskmaster tried to shoot Wesker, but he dodged all shots. Then Taskmaster tried to tackle him, only to be grabbed, elbowed in his back and kneed in his stomach. Taskmaster has learned Wesker's teleport and made him retreat. Then Doom tried to throw a fish net on him (made from the back hairs of the eldest Latverian women, according to him) but was unsuccessful. They engaged in a fight when Deadpool woke up and started to fight with Strider. Taskmaster tried to slice Doom in half, but Doom caught the blade and used the Finger Lazers on him, knocking him out. Deadpool started to wildly shoot, only to hit M.O.D.O.K.. Strider summoned his Legion, though it was only Ammy. Deadpool tried to pet her, only to be bitten. Wesker and Strider beat up Taskmaster, and Doom used Doom's Time on him, exploding him.
Strider had to report to his HQ and disappeared, and Wesker and Doom adviced Max to leave his house. After that they together with Strider went to the diner to eat some tacos.
Time Travel with Doom
Sometime after the fight against Taskmaster, M.O.D.O.K. and Deadpool, Max has been spending "days" in his new place trying to win a match of UMvC3, only to be snapped out of it by Wesker letting him know that Doctor Doom has messed up their new place (e.g. putting bacon on the ceiling fan) and to meet him outside the mall at 1:15 PM. Max gets to Doctor Doom, three minutes later than he was told to and finds out that due to a breach of the space time continuum, Max never went to the Marvel Super Heroes tournament he was supposed to go to in the past, which is why he isn't winning a match of UMvC3 in the present. Doctor Doom intends to remedy this by using the Infinity Gauntlet, which he stole from Thanos while building him a new gem set using gems from Street Fighter x Tekken, which turned out to be Cross Gauge and Defense gems which he though would take him weeks to figure out that they were worthless, unfortunately Thanos tracked him down as he said this and even without the Infinity Gauntlet, he demonstrates enough power to cause a nearby explosion.
Doctor Doom and Max then try to get away from him and his lackey, seeing no way out of it, Doctor Doom uses the Time Gem to travel through time. They end up un 1997, near the time that the tournament takes place. They decide to practice for it at Max's old room (after having a brief conversation with a past version of Albert Wesker when he was a police officer) Unfortunately the Time Gem got fried in the trip from 2012 to 1997, so they need to get the Time Gem that's in the possession of the earlier version of Thanos, which based on Max's inability to beat him, it looks unlikely that they'll get back to 2012...
After going over the tutorial, Doom goes with Max after he suggested going for some sushi, where he saw Wesker bullying Bruce Banner into and to calm him down and prevent the Hulk from emerging, he gave him a picture of Felicia and it was revealed that Wesker is going to a biologist to make money and create bio-weapons to conquer the world. Doom persuades him to be a police officer, and Wesker agrees.
Doctor Doom then pushed Max into where the Marven Super Heroes tournament is and downs some yogurt while he waits for Max to get the Time Gem from Thanos by winning the tournament (Doctor Doom bet a number of things on it, including top secret latverian technology) which made Thanos angry, although Max was able to distract him long enough to run away with Doom, once they return to the present, they're greeted by Thanos who is surprisingly nicer than he was last time they saw him in 2012 where he told them to "return the Infinity Gauntlet when they're done with it". They then find out that something is off when they find out that Captain Commando has returned, when he should be missing for over 10 years, knowing this they travel time again to investigate this...
Reign of Commando
Max and Doom wander into a GameStop and discover every video game now stars Captain Commando, and learn that he has captured or killed almost every villain from the games, including Strider, and Commando has even married X-23, much to Doom's horror. Doom and Max then leave the GameStop and go to Commando's home, where they learn he became 'so top tier' after receiving a strategy guide for Marvel vs Capcom 7 from a mysterious 'fat guy in a blue and yellow jumpsuit', giving him valuable information from the future. He also warned Commando of Max and Doom asking about the book, and attempts to attack them, but Doom uses his finger snap to cause a small explosion, allowing him and Max to escape with the book.
After fleeing Commando, Max questions how all this could've happened and Max realizes that Doom damaged history by convincing Wesker to become a police officer instead of a virologist. Realizing they need to go back to the past, Doom realizes the Time Gem has burned out again, but Doom has an idea and they go to Max's home. While there, they encounter alternatate timeline's Max who is more dim-witted than the original one, and Doom grinds up several games under his hood to create more gems for the Gauntlet, finally getting all the Gems they need just in time as alternate Max threatens to shoot them with a shotgun. Doom has Max "Grab my tassels!" so they can return to the past.
Back in the past, Doom and Max follow some directions from Iron Man and find Wesker's home, following him to his gym, while along the way, Doom prevents Wesker from arresting a homeless Strider by using a Mexican disguise, but fails to convince him to become a virologist. When they reach the gym, Captain Commando is there waiting for them and attacks, having already spoken with the 'fat man'. Doom convinces Max to get to Wesker and set the timeline right while he battles Commando, despite being nerfed in the past. Doom uses the Infinity Gauntlet to even the odds, even bringing himself and Commando back into the game but Commando still wins, and holds Doom hostage, forcing Max to come back out.
Thankfully, Max manages to beat Commando by tricking him and Wesker finishes him off by running him down with his car. The three depart on good turns and Doom returns himself and Max to the future, landing on the couch in their home, which looks much better now, right next to Wesker and Ammy. Doom suddenly loses the Infinity Gauntlet and after hearing a thank you message from Yoshinori Ono himself, the three decide to peek into the Marvel vs Capcom 7 guide, learning Hsien-Ko is top tier in the future.

Abilities and Skills
Doom has shown that he possesses many of his skills that he does in-game. On multiple occasions, he has used Photon Array (The Finger Lasers) and he has also used Doom's Time, which he describes as a "human-sized blender". More than anything, he has displayed the ability to snap his fingers and summon or whisk away anything he wants. He has used this skill twice to get the upper hand on Wesker, sending him in Resident Evil 5 and Max's TV, and has summoned his Hidden Missiles, a Doom Equis ale, "a delicious mojito", popped corn, etc. This ability doesn't seem to be able to alter a person's will though, or else he would have been able to make X-23 love him without so much effort.
Doom appears to be quite physically strong, as when he strikes Wesker he does a fair amount of damage, but sometimes he appears to be extremely weak, as he couldn't do pushups like Chris. However, his hand-to-hand fighting technique could use some work, as Wesker, Jill, Deadpool, Rocket Raccoon and Captain Commando have all bested him in fist fights, though he has managed to hold his own with the likes of Taskmaster, but his Finger Lasers and The Human Blender were what ultimately defeated him.
His hood also acts as a hammerspace of sorts, holding several games, movies and various other items. Doom's hood also seems to be able to grind up video games and turn them into Infinity Gems, or plutonium, by using comic book logic.
Doom also briefly possessed the Infinity Gauntlet, allowing him to time travel, use energy blasts and even warp reality to return him and Captain Commando to the games, although he loses the Gauntlet shortly after.

Doom has appeared in numerous videos outside of Assist Me! He is a regular character on Maximilian's series "Max and Doom Play Modern Warfare 3", although he and Max have so far only served as voice-over commentary and not as live-action performers. He has also done several promotional videos for Max's channel, including a parody of the "Most Interesting Man in the World" Doom Equis commercials, and Max's "MVC3 Assist of the Day."
- Doom's outfit is referred to his outfit as armor several times - even though it's clearly just clothing and the only "armor" he wears is his mask.
- Doom huffs whenever he walks, similar to some bulldogs.
- Contrary to Doom's comic-book counterpart, he doesn't seem intent on world domination. He does retain his superiority complex, though. However, occasionally throughout the series, there have been hints that he formerly had (and possibly still has) intentions on world domination (and it also seems that he still has at least some dominance over Latveria.) Though this Doom never seems to act upon them..............
- In the Assist Me! Universe, Doom is a brony (the name given to fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic); he is known to have a somewhat creepy attraction to the character Rarity.
- He paid Dormammu for the "cursed" UMvC3 disc with Bison Dollars, this was from the Street Fighter movie adaptation, Max even made the same comment regarding them as Sagat did in the movie that they weren't even "worth the paper they're printed on!".
- In the Deadpool episode of Assist Me!, Doom actually referenced Spider-Man when he said "How many countries do you run, YOU DISFIGURED SPIDER-MAN KNOCKOFF?!".
- He smells like an "auto-shop and bacon", according to X-23 (part of that smell being Old Spice).
