One of the most beloved Marvel characters in the whole Marvel Universe, is the villainous Victor von Doom a.k.a. Doctor Doom, mostly associated with the Fantastic Four, but also one of the most dangerous villains of that universe. But does everyone see him as a villain? Stan Lee, who created the character, doesn’t seem to share that opinion about Doctor Doom.
KJ Ricci, who is a 14-year old leukemia survivor, got to interview Lee recently and one of his questions to the legendary comics creator was who Lee’s favorite villain. Lee said Doctor Doom, but gave quite an interesting answer and angle on that character.
“Everybody has Doctor Doom misunderstood. Everybody thinks he is a criminal, but all he wants is to rule the world. Now if you really think about it objectively, you could walk up to a policeman, and you could say, “Excuse me, officer, I want to tell you something: I want to rule the world.” He can’t arrest you; it’s not a crime to want to rule the world. So, it’s unfair that he’s considered a villain, because he just wants to rule the world. Then maybe he could do a better job of it. So I’m very interested in Doctor Doom, and I’d like to clear his name.”
