Origin

Dr Doom's Castle (by Joe Jusko)

Castle Doom is a medieval-styled palace which is the home of Doctor Doom self proclaimed ruler if the small European nation of Latveria. It is located on a mountain top outside the capital city of Doomstadt (originally known as Hassenstadt) within the small Eastern European country of Latveria. It was once the royal palace of Hassenstadt. When Doom returned to his homeland of Latveria he overthrew the leader and declared himself king. He then began to using the castle and his country's resources in order to further his plans of world domination.[1] These schemes led Doom into conflict with the Fantastic Four on many occasions, as well as many other superheroes. It became the 9th wealthiest nation on Earth without virtually no crime or poverty due to the industrial and technological genius of Doctor Doom, and the entire country itself including mostly Castle Doom in Doomstadt is heavily patrolled and policed by Doombots which resembles the very same madman who created them.[1]
