Alternative Versions of Doctor Doom - Alternate Universe Depictions - Warlock

On the original Counter Earth, Victor Von Doom is a genius, but not a villain. He appears in the original Warlock series. Von Doom's armor is now represented only by the metallic mask and the green hood/cape is gone. He is referred to as "the most famous egghead in the country", the "like spirit-brother" of Reed Richards, and "a man as dedicated to counter-Earth's survival as Earth's Von Doom is to its enslavement".

He and Reed Richards are mentioned in passing in Marvel Premiere #2 and Adam Warlock #2 as scientists without any sort of super-powers. In Adam Warlock #6, it is told how Von Doom and Richards had been room-mates, friends and lab partners in college. After Von Doom's disfiguring accident, Richards emotional support prevented him from becoming a villain. When Richards and his three companions hijacked a spaceship in order to be the first humans in space, Von Doom unsuccessfully attempted to talk him out of it. Though all of the counter "fantastic four" were exposed to cosmic radiation, it was only Richards that was affected due to the interference of Man-Beast though the effects only became apparent ten years later when he became the Brute due to "latent cosmic radiation - and a mysterious guiding hand".

In Adam Warlock #5-7, Victor Von Doom worked at the Livermore Valley Lab in California where he works on "Earth-Corer-1", a vehicle designed to tunnel into the Earth. He warned the president of a massive earthquake that would be caused by a nuclear bomb test. The resulting earthquake accidentally activated "Antipersonnel missiles, nicknamed deathbirds" which began killing people indiscriminately, but Von Doom was able to destroy them with Adam Warlocks help using one of his inventions called the "deactivator". He dies while helping Adam Warlock stop the Brute from absorbing all of counter-Earth's geothermal energy.
