How Doctor Doom joined the Tourney
A gypsy child, Victor Von Doom's mother was killed by the demon Mephisto and his father, who was a doctor, failed to cure Latveria's Queen. Fearing the King's wrath towards him and his son, Doom's father took him and fled into the cold forest, where his father died. Doom swore that to avenge his parents, he would use any means necessary, including science and magic. Doom was offered a scholarship to Empire State University, where he became roommates with Reed Richards, later Mister Fantastic of the Fantastic Four. While working on a device to open portals to other dimensions so he may free his mother, Doom was told by Richards of a miscalculation in his design. Doom ignored this advice, and the machine exploded, scarring Doom and having him expelled. After obtaining a suit of armor from monks, he returned to his homeland of Latveria and liberate it from the tyrant King, then ruling with an iron fist. However, he has made life prosperous and enjoyable for his people. Since then, he has been an enemy to most heroes in the Marvel universe and a terrific threat, often trying to take over the world since he believes he's the only one that can make it a paradise in the Smash Bros. Tourney, which Doom later signed up for.
