Quote1 Today, I make no demands... no threats! But, one day, I shall voice demands -- and all shall obey them! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)

--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Family. Family is the most important thing there is... And I have been a bad father. I have failed my people, my son, my country... I've gone too far. In my quest for power I've destroyed many lives... I've dissolved the sacred bond of family time and time again. No more! My misdeeds are many, but I'll not let their enormity hold me back. This inversion has helped me to realize things about myself I've never dared ponder. It's opened up a whole new area of my consciousness. I will make everything right. For I am not a simple do-gooder-- I am Doom. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 And so I escaped to America. Where I would lose everything... Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 No man speaks to Doom this way. Even Captain America. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 T'Challa thinks that he has set a trap for me. Tricked me into the open. But in his arrogance he has played into my trap. And as a result I have done what no one else has managed in ten thousand years. I've conquered Wakanda. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 My methods are a means to an end, no different than pruning weeds in order to let an orchid flourish. Those who stand in the way of my vision oppose me because they fear me, but more than that they fear what I represent. Change. Do you know what I despise Richards? And T'Challa? Because never one have they reined in their own self-righteous arrogance long enough to try and see what I see. Never once have they asked me: why? Do you want to know? Love. Measure my crimes against what mankind does to itself, and I am a saint. ... I have looked into the future, I have seen how one violent action after another spins the world toward a future where all that remains of Earth is a burned out cinder. Every time I have looked into the future, that is what I have seen. Every time but one. In one possible future mankind becomes united. Cures for all diseases are found. Global conflict ends. Hunger is abolished. Education is universal. And no one goes without. In that world, there are laws. To break even the slightest of these is to suffer immediate and terminal punishment. ... Ten thousand futures have I looked at. A hundred thousand. And in only one does mankind finally unite, and flourish...and survive. Only one. Doomworld. Quote2

--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Is it true what I've heard, Benjamin? That when Johnny Storm died -- valiantly facing an endless army... Is it true that you -- surrounded by crying children -- weeping at the inevitable death of your close comrade and friend... Is it true? Is it true that you just...watched? How very brave. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 How to destroy a man: grant him his heart's desire. One. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 This game shall soon reach its inevitable conclusion -- -- and the final triumph shall belong to Doctor Doom! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I had expected my moment of victory to be more...satisfying......but perhaps repaying you for years of treachery, for the ultimate cruelty of tampering with my laborious calculations upon our first meeting......will grant me peace of mind whereas merely defeating my most worthy of foes does not! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 My vast and supreme will shall be done! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 As for the Wizard, he takes excessive pride in his invention of antigravity drives - an achievement I accomplished while I was a Youth. Besides, how can I take anyone seriously who voluntarily takes the Trapster as a partner? Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Ask yourself that question. Or better still, ask who that is sharing your mind... Malice. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)

--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I am an infinitely superior being now, Richards. All questions of rivalry with you are settled. Infinite pain is a welcome price to pay. Quote2

--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Permit me to salute your courage, Richards! A pity you have not the power to match it! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 To escape it, or to simply use it, Richards must think like me. To think like me, is ultimately to become me. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 You plead in vain, Richards. It was a test before, to determine who held true sway over your soul... ...the Dreamer. Or the despot... ...and you failed! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 My life is changing. When I was young, I made a fateful choice. I chose science over sorcery. And I wanted choose again. Thus, I made a pact. I conjured a cabal of netherdemons who claimed they would make me the magician I could have been... and greater besides. But as is too often true demons, there was a barter involved. One condition. I had to sacrifice something of indescribable value. Something irreplaceable. Something only you could give me. Farewell, my love. Dear, dear Valeria. I will miss you more than any will ever imagine... ...but I will always hold you close to me. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Unleash your technological marvels. Bring your vaunted scientific brilliance to bear. Do your worst. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Perhaps we are natural allies after all. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Latveria is European , Mr. Cage-- I have no black subjects, and~ sad to say-- no one ever emigrates to my land. Thus, in order to pursue them unobtrusively-- for I am not welcome in the United States-- I needed a Black, and I needed to hire him. Enter, Luke Cage. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I am here because I figured out what I have to do. I will pick up your mantle. I will be Iron Man. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 My shame is that I could have done this so many years ago, had I seen things with a clear mind. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 My apologies. Making sure no harm will come to others is relatively new to me. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I was God, and... and yet, I was unchanged. I was not one with the universe. I was not content. I had pushed myself for this for so much of my life only to discover it was a fool's quest. So I fell back to Earth... forced to confront my true self... to rethink my purpose in this life. And it was then that a sudden and simply notion struck me. It knocked me to my knees. If the selfish act of ultimate power was not my calling... then maybe the opposite could be true. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 There is a professor named Angela Kror who would be an excellent chancellor to you and could help put together a proper government structure... so you could then relinquish control of the streets and let the people build Latveria for themselves. I was able to vet her as a perfect candidate in the five seconds while we stood here. You should have done that the second day you were put in power. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 If I thought my time would be best spent behind bars for my crimes, if I thought I would learn something more profound than what I have already learned... I would gladly put myself away. But... I think we can all agree, I can do far more to right my wrongs from out here. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I made you regent of this domain because you are royal. You understand this to rule, and the power you and your Inhumans gain through exposure to Terrigen Crystals means you are equiped to enforce that rule. But there are many, in many realms, who would take your seat in an instant, if you were to lose favor in my eyes. Fail in this task I have set you, Medusa, and they will have their chance. New Attilan is crucial. To me, and to the safety and security of Battleworld. Only a ruler strong enough to keep it safe will be permitted to keep it at all. And the weak... The weak become meat for the beasts beyond the Shield. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 The life of an adventurer, an Avenger, a knight is, by percentages, a shorter one. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Compassion can be useful, when properly manipulated. But not when it rules one's judgement. And that will ever be your weakness. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 So come forth, Avenger. It is time to put our lingering dispute... to an end! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Only Doom dares to dream! All others serve! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 What do you want ... errand boy? Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Morgana Le Fey, you are a remarkable woman. Were you but a product of my own time... Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 From our previous encounter, lackey, I owe you vengeance. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Why do they look like me? Doesn't it create the possibility that I am one? That Doom may, at any moment, be a mere machine? That I am not myself? Of course it does. That is how I wish it. I once let Arcade strike a match on me, just to mantain that confusion. Think, boy. If I am ever defeated, or dishonored-- If I ever act in ways unworthy of myself... If I ever die... The word goes out: "It must have been a Doombot." And the reverse is true. My robots often fool my foes-- I may be a robot now, speaking these words. How would you know? How would I? What is Doom? The flesh and blood that I can swap in and out of at my convenience? The mind I have copied to a thousand machines? No. Doom cannot fit in such small containers. I am not my body. Not my mind. I am... I am the old trunk, filled with ancient mysteries. I am the explosion in the college laboratory. I am the mask that burns with the fires of vengeance. I am the legend that unites this nation. I am the story of Doom. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 The star Doom follows beckons only to him... and none other! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 SCREAM, you pitiful fools! Your torment increases the power of Doom! Together we shall teach the Fantastic Four that they have nothing to fear but FEAR ITSELF! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 The Beyonder is dead! Now, the supreme being in the universe... is Doom! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Farewell my companions -- When next we meet -- it will be as foes! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 A lot more people hate you than hate me. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 You and I have fought monsters, Nazis -- even gods. I relish the battles we waged side-by-side. And when you challenged me, my blood raced at the rare presence of a worthy foe. But now? You are no king. You're barely a man. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Do not let your idle tongue undo your small successes. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Do you truly believe Von Doom embarks upon the least of his plans without calculating the smallest detail? Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Now? Now those who believe they can manufacture doom will face Doom himself. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 And I say, no one will ever hear the word Beyonder again... For I will erase your name from history. You dared to test us... You dared to toy with us... I dare to throw back in your face. Damn your cause. Damn the cost. You will certainly die this... No... No... No! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 There is no flaw in the world -- it is the world I wanted. But my people are restless because I fail to properly inspire them. I am a poor god. I think now that once having made the world, I should have removed myself. Perhaps the gods of old had it right... It is better to be unseen-- demanding faith, and beyond being defined by the mundane. I'm beginning to think that in my perfect world... I am the one flawed thing. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Undying love and eternal patience are not the same thing, child. Do not confuse them. I need you to find these people. I need you to catch them. And I need you to do it without asking any more questions. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I am betrayed. Again. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Your words lack vision, Kang, but you will soon learn the meaning of ultimate power! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Behold the new sun that soars in the heavens! Gaze upon the great and terrible star whose name is Doom! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 This is a power beyond anyone's control. A power that cannot remain mine. Just as they did for Wolverine and Spider-Man, my own self doubt and my fears will attain reality... given life by the chaos of my mind... fueled by the Beyonder's powers, and these doubts will defeat me. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 So then never let it be said Dr. Doom was a poor loser! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Few men are as subtle as Doctor Doom! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Your life hangs on a thread to be cut short on Doom's command! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 The duel is done Skull! And the victory... Doom's! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I do as I choose.. and I answer to no one! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I dislike your threats woman, particularly since your voice should be raised in tribute! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 The Mighty Avengers, BAH! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 You'll rue the day you ever heard the name Dr. Doom! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 For all I've done, for all I am, I'm still mortal. If these -- procedures -- will allow me to gain immortality, then there will be nothing I cannot accomplish. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Consider that your one stroke of luck. You may now have minutes to live instead of seconds. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Ah, Trickster. You are beyond by understanding...but Doom perseveres. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Your rodent army cannot help you now. And without them, you are nothing: an insect far beneath my notice. Goodbye, Squirrel Girl. You shall not trouble me again. Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 I am Doom... Destroyer of worlds... What gods dare stand against me? Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
Quote1 Knowledge is power. In all the universe there is no greater truth. And I do not intend to share it! Quote2
--Victor von Doom (Earth-616)
