One of the most fascinating mysteries of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, apart from who will take on the Black Panther title and how Namor becomes the major antagonist. We are very excited about Doctor Doom’s entry into MCU, even it is a rumour we can still hope for the best. In the comics, King T’Challa and Namor had a bitter feud, fueled by Black Panther’s rejection of Namor’s efforts to lure him into a darker Illuminati. While it’s unclear how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will bring both empires to blows, one thing is certain: the conflict will be brutal and upend the franchise’s status quo.
We can still get a sense of how Doctor Doom will be portrayed in the film. According to current rumours, Ryan Gosling will play this role. So, before you see Wakanda Forever, here’s a short origin story of Doctor Doom.
Dr Victor von Doom, often known as Doctor Doom is a Latverian politician who serves as the Kingdom of Latveria’s Monarch and Supreme Leader. He hides his actual face behind an iron mask and armour. He is regarded as one of the most brilliant brains and a scientist globally. He is also a sorcerer with magical abilities comparable to the most powerful creatures in the Universe, making him a possible contender for Sorcerer Supreme. Through universal conquest, he intends to bring order and development to humanity. He has clashed with both superhumans and cosmic creatures due to his unparalleled abilities, arrogance, and will strengthen. You can say that Doctor Doom is also cursed with knowledge.
Brief origin story of Doctor Doom
Victor von Doom was born in the country of Latveria. Cynthia, his mother, was dead in a faulty deal with Mephisto. Despite his father’s efforts, she died and Werner von Doom escaped on a bitter winter night with a young Victor. Victor made it through the cold, but his father did not. Doom wanted to learn more about science and magic to order to save his mother.
When the young Victor found his mother’s hoard of mystical artefacts on his own, he put himself on a dark road when he realised her death reason. His amazing scientific ability earned him a scholarship at America’s State University in New York, and he left his own country in search of knowledge to heal his spirit.
Von Doom met another scientific genius, Reed Richards, in New York, and the two became instant rivals. When the Latvian student surreptitiously tested a gadget he invented to overcome the dimension gap. As Doctor Doom, he returned to Latveria, deposed its ruler, and renamed its capital Doomstadt, with all his scientific knowledge through weaponry, and even time travel. Von Doom, confident in his leadership and armed with strong armies, went out to conquer the world.
