Off My Mind: Could Doctor Doom Take Over The World?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Shouldn't he be able to?
There's also the fact that he has a time platform and could travel to other points in time if he wanted. He could travel to a future era and take any bit of advanced technology to help defeat any enemies that might gather to try to stop him.
With all the different super powered villains, it seems a little surprising that no one has tried to take over the world. It wouldn't be easy, of course, but if anyone would try, it would be Doctor Doom.
Back in 1987, Emperor Doom gave a look at his attempt to rule the world. With the help of Namor and the Purple Man, Doom was on his way to ruling it all. What is the reason that Doom isn't in control of the entire world?

It has to come down to Doom simply doesn't want the whole world. In Emperor Doom, it felt like he simply gave up when the Avengers manage to resist his commands that he should be the ruler (again, with the help of the Purple Man's persuasive powers). He started thinking about all the demands and questions those working under him requested from him. Doom's heart just wasn't in it. He didn't seem to want the position of Emperor by the end of the story. Doom didn't want to deal with all the bureaucracy.
Did Doom just give up? Could he ever rule the world if he wanted? Eventually he could deal with any opposition from the superheroes. He has the arrogance to believe he should be in control of everything. Yet he always manages to be defeated. Perhaps Doom is all talk. Maybe all Doom really wants is his mommy.
