Doom was the perfect dictator who could slaughter the purpose of heroes from being the last survival race.

He assumed the role of the legions of the unliving when revived by Kang The Conqueror from his many months of animation stage on saving the Avengers against Baron Heinrich Zemo. On his revival, he was forced to battle the Avengers. Then he was created as the perfect weapon as a living zombie awakened by the Black Talon to create a second succession attack.

Doctor Doom is the Iron Man we always wanted. He is the perfect spotlight of technical wizardry, imagination, artistry, and passion that brought his endeavors to full criminal possession as witnessed above when he dominated Wakanda. The camaraderie between Iron Man and King Arthur stated its bond as a great chemistry. Whereas Doom with Le Fay’s Zombies were no match for the tide they encountered against their opponents. Things had to sort out between the two Iron men till the moment they returned home on their present time.

If comic fans believed that there was a possibility of DC and Marvel universe to collaborate. It was that the universe did collide together once.
