    First!

    Everyone in Marvel would be screwed, but what color would he use?.

  2. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 7:55 am -      #2

    He’d probably find it beneath him..much like he found godhood beneath himself.

    If I had to guess which color he’d get…I guess Yellow? Though I could see him getting Green even if he’s a huge asshole by most standards.

    Still the better question is would he even actually use it.

    Dr. Doom has gotten stronger amps before… He consumed the Beyonder for gods sake. This won’t be any different.
    It would be MAYBE as big of a threat as Adam Magus. Would take a team of cosmic heroes, with a villain or two helping out.
    Marvel heroes have just been getting more & more ridiculous, so i don’t see anything short of a major entity posing a real threat.

    @Ragnorke
    he got another universes Infinity Gauntlet and became god there….made an entire “perfect” universe half magic half science in harmony…then they decided he was a douche and went all rage against the heavens….somehow got the Gauntlet away from him…long story short it ended with him saying godhood was beneath him.

    Oh, i just realized, he just gets A power battery?
    I thought it meant like the central power battery, the one that powers up all the rings.

    Any half decent hero is going to be able to deal with him, fairly easily.

    For the record, he would probably get Greed. (orange)

  6. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 10:07 am -      #6

    If he got the central battery that’d be a whole different can of worms due to emotion entities and shit..

  7. Malenfant August 28, 2014 at 12:15 pm -      #7

    Doom gets a moderate power-up, continues to keep losing to Reed.

  8. Ranger Lowk August 28, 2014 at 1:28 pm -      #8

    Orange or maybe Yellow. Greed or Fear seem pretty doomish.
    Is Doom still even a villain anymore. I thought he was just a dictator. I mean Reed and Sue even leave there daughter in his care.

  9. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 1:29 pm -      #9

    @Lowk
    I don’t know anymore, him and Magneto both I don’t know with anymore.

  10. Ragnorke August 28, 2014 at 4:21 pm -      #10

    @jake_uzumaki
    Magneto & Doom are both considered anti-heroes now imo. Same with one of the Venoms.
    All the “classic” villains have started helping out their old enemies, caus of all the new more powerful & evil characters being introduced.

    Didn’t Doom teamup with Strange in their fight against Mephisto?
    They spent a couple of days (or longer) in Mephistos realm together. I always thought of them as allies since then.

  11. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 6:51 pm -      #11

    Yeah, that was when Strange beat the shit out of Mephisto to get Doom’s mom back…they have a…special relationship because Doom is the second most powerful Sorcerer on Earth..so it’s complicated between them. He’s the only person Doom ever admitted actually was his better at something.

  12. Ragnorke August 28, 2014 at 7:56 pm -      #12

    “Yeah, that was when Strange beat the shit out of Mephisto ”

    If i recall correctly, Doom & Strange were having a pretty hard time against Mephisto.
    Strange flat out called Mephisto too powerful for him to deal with.
    The scans were actually posted in the Necrolord vs Ghost Rider thread.

  13. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 9:33 pm -      #13

    There’s been several different instances where they teamed up…I think there are two or three where they met up with Mephisto, if I remember correctly in at least one of them Strange smacked down Mephisto which Doom was surprised by as he had failed to do it for years or something like that.
    They’ve had quite a few team ups over the years.

  14. Ragnorke August 28, 2014 at 9:40 pm -      #14

    “in at least one of them Strange smacked down Mephisto which Doom was surprised by as he had failed to do it for years or something like that.”

    Hmm… was it in a different realm (or the standard marvelverse) by any chance?
    I’d be pretty surprised if Strange ever beat Mephisto in his own realm. They always made it pretty clear that the demon lords were above Strange when in their own realms.
    But then again, people like Thor & Adam have smacked mephisto around in his realm… so… it coulda happened.

  15. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 9:57 pm -      #15

    It’s hard to find working scans of some of the older comics, I remember a big deal being made of it at one point but other than that not sure.

    Mephisto fluctuates though, he stalemated Galactus at one point…but then Galactus started eating his realm so he gave up.

  16. Ragnorke August 28, 2014 at 10:08 pm -      #16

    “Mephisto fluctuates though, he stalemated Galactus at one point…but then Galactus started eating his realm so he gave up.”

    Lol seriously? xD hahahaa
    Yea mephisto does fluctuate quite a bit, but for the most part i assumed he was Galactus tier when in his realm.
    Thor only beat him caus he has a “good heart” or some shit like that.
    & Adam Warlock is just… Dr. Strange on steroids.

  17. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 10:12 pm -      #17

    Yeah Galactus tried to eat Hell to get his way…and it worked.
    Thor it was a pure soul
    and yeah Adam Warlock is a Cosmic Wizard..basically if you mixed Surfer and Gladiator and changed it from Power Cosmic to Cosmic Magic..whatever that means

  18. OberHerr August 28, 2014 at 11:07 pm -      #18

    Adam Warlock beating out Mephisto would make a ton of sense, since the whole Soul Gem thing.

  19. Jake_Uzumaki August 28, 2014 at 11:23 pm -      #19

    Did he have the gem when it happened?

  20. OberHerr August 29, 2014 at 12:00 am -      #20

    Pretty sure. He rarely doesn’t have it.

  21. Ragnorke August 29, 2014 at 8:40 am -      #21

    Adam warlock consumed the soul gem a LONG time ago. So it’s physically impossible to ever make an IG again.
    He permanently has all his powers, and a while after that he got evolved by the high evolutionary, which gave him control over magic.
    So he now has cosmic powers, soul fuckery, and magic.

  22. Jake_Uzumaki August 29, 2014 at 8:59 am -      #22

    The problem is the Soul Gem was recently used to make the Infinity Gauntlet…and was one of the gems that broke, the only Infinity Gem left is the Time Gem and Captain America has it.

  23. Ragnorke August 29, 2014 at 9:48 am -      #23

    @Jake
    I just read up on it a bit.
    It seems as though Adam was turning back into Magus, and asked the GotG/Infinity-Watch to kill him.
    I’m assuming they took the Soul gem back then.

    I haven’t read the latest arc, but this is what i found on the Marvel Wiki:
    “the soul regained it’s body revealing itself to be Adam Warlock, newly resurrected and exhausted from the energy required to regain his body. As Thanos tried to make sense of a strange cosmic force that seemed to pull him, Adam assisted, feeling drawn as well and wanting to make sure Thanos’ intentions truely weren’t malicious. The duo encountered the Annihilators at their destination, teleported away Gladiator, and defeated Ikon, Beta Ray Bill, Ronan, Quasar, and Silver Surfer. Afterwards the two explored the treasure in the ruins deep below the planet’s surface, encountering two copies of themselves from a parallel universe in the process.
    The artefact had been created by unknown higher-dimensional entities above even the Living Tribunal, and the two universes were remodeled according to Thanos’ and Warlock’s respective subconscious perceptions of reality. The remaining incarnation of Thanos had to destroy the version of Warlock in charge of one reality, while the remaining incarnation of Warlock had to destroy the version of Thanos in charge of the other.
    After the two timelines returned to normal, they merged together, with the parallel, and supposedly far more powerful, version of Warlock retroactively taking over the position of the now annihilated former incarnation, whose life was detailed above. It was left unknown whether or not Thanos was replaced, but he resumed his courtship with Death, and with it his old ways.”

    This is the story arc where the Thanos scans came from. Of him fighting BRB & Ronan.
    Apparently Thanos returned to the realm of death, and Adam is more powerful than ever.

    Okay then..so comic shenanegans then.

  25. The Geek Lord August 30, 2014 at 9:59 pm -      #25

    I could see Doom having green, because he’s definitely got no shortage of willpower. Magneto could use that too, or fear. However I also see Doom having red, because he also has no shortage of hatred/rage for the F4, especially “RICHAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDS!”

  26. Ragnorke August 30, 2014 at 10:16 pm -      #26

    Now that i think about it, Hope & Love aren’t out of the question either.
    Could Doom get a White Lantern ring? D:
    He has no shortage of strong emotions, and strives for perfection.

  27. Darth Bombad August 30, 2014 at 11:07 pm -      #27

    ^ I was thinking that too, he has an iron will, so there’s green.
    He has demonstrated hate, greed and a capacity to use fear.
    But he also show’s hope, love and compassion to his people.

    So yeah i can totally see him as a White Lantern.
    He even already has the outfit for it.

  28. OberHerr August 30, 2014 at 11:16 pm -      #28

    But the Green Ring would fit better with his signature green. And, lets face it, that’s all he’d care about in this case. It looking good on him.

  29. Darth Bombad August 30, 2014 at 11:23 pm -      #29

    How about Black Lantern Doom?.

  30. Ranger Lowk August 30, 2014 at 11:23 pm -      #30

    Takes more then having these things to be white lantern. Otherwise anyone could be a white lantern. Also doubt Dooms one for the blue lanterns way. He’s more skewed to fear, greed, and anger.

  31. Jake_Uzumaki August 31, 2014 at 12:07 am -      #31

    Well he does qualify for multiple rings…just like Kyle did and it worked for him.

  32. OberHerr August 31, 2014 at 12:18 am -      #32

    I’m imagining Doom sitting in some cosmic application room, filling out a bunch of applications for all these different rings.

  33. Ranger Lowk August 31, 2014 at 12:44 am -      #33

    “Well he does qualify for multiple rings…just like Kyle did and it worked for him.”

    A lot of people qualifiy for multiple rings. But you’d need all. Something tells me Doom’s ego doesn’t put a lot of stock in hope. And while has his moments what compassion requires seems a bit Non-doom.

  34. Ranger Lowk August 31, 2014 at 1:10 am -      #34

    “I’m imagining Doom sitting in some cosmic application room, filling out a bunch of applications for all these different rings.”

    If there written by the current leaders of the rings I’d say Doom starts to lose it either at the note about compassion ring basically penance staring him or The orange ring application reading MINE in Larfleeze’s handwriting.

  35. Jake_Uzumaki August 31, 2014 at 1:31 am -      #35

    @Lowk
    I don’t know…he’s got that soft spot for Valeria Richards, and he put faith/hope in Dr. Strange’s ability to help him get his mother from Mephisto so he is capable of it to some degree.
    This is the same guy that passed the test of the Panther goddess despite the fact the goddess knew everything about him and his real motives. If he can pull that off I wouldn’t put qualifying for all the rings past him.

  36. OberHerr August 31, 2014 at 1:37 am -      #36

    Pretty sure he’d take one look at the violet corps application and go “Pass.”

    The others….eh. Black Lantern Corps might have some issues…..but I feel like if anyone could figure out a way around that, he could.

  37. Ranger Lowk August 31, 2014 at 1:50 am -      #37

    “I don’t know…he’s got that soft spot for Valeria Richards, and he put faith/hope in Dr. Strange’s ability to help him get his mother from Mephisto so he is capable of it to some degree.”

    Yeah but these aren’t core to Doom. He has his moments and parts like anyone else but these type of things aren’t really ring bearer worthy.
    You realize how many people love there family who don’t have violet rings. Or how many people hope for things that don’t have Blue rings.

  38. Ragnorke August 31, 2014 at 10:30 am -      #38

    “How about Black Lantern Doom?.”

    Black lanterns represent death, which is the absence of all emotion. Doom has quite a few strong emotions.
    Black lantern is the least likely for him.

    “Yeah but these aren’t core to Doom. He has his moments and parts like anyone else but these type of things aren’t really ring bearer worthy.”

    Well no one in existence has control over all emotions as “core” part of them. Not even batman.
    Yet people get the white ring anyways, because they’re all around balanced, and can control its power using all emotions.
    I think Doom fits into the criteria.

    “You realize how many people love there family who don’t have violet rings. Or how many people hope for things that don’t have Blue rings.”

    Caus they are unlucky fuckers.
    We already know Dr. Doom is getting a ring, there’s no ifs or buts there.

  39. Ranger Lowk August 31, 2014 at 2:01 pm -      #39

    “Well no one in existence has control over all emotions as “core” part of them. Not even batman.”

    Then apparently Kyle is special then because he had multiple rings come to him at the same time.
    ===
    “Yet people get the white ring anyways, because they’re all around balanced, and can control its power using all emotions.”

    Current white ring was created, it didn’t come to him. This was after he had a ring, had other rings come to him, and mastered the other emotional spectrum.
    ===
    “Yet people get the white ring anyways, because they’re all around balanced, and can control its power using all emotions.”

    I don’t know how it was in the past but currently only white ring is the one Kyle created. Not only that but his finds people like Sinestro unsuitable, emotionally speaking out of all the lanterns Sinestro seems closer to Doom then Kyle does.

    So if Doom wants a white ring to stay and not be a short term upgrade(assuming it would choose him), he’s going to need one of the regular rings first, then would need the other rings to come to get to him to distort his original ring, then train in the usage of the other rings, then he might possibly become a white lantern, or he might have to almost die first and be saved by deus ex Emotional spectrum.

    Doom no longer needs prep time, lol
