Brief Bio: Perennial foe of the Fantastic Four, and Reed Richards in particular, Victor von Doom has faced defeat after defeat at the hands of the FF, a fact that has only served to further his megalomaniacal ambitions. Born in Latveria to gypsies, Doom's mother lost her soul to the demon Mephisto while his father died protecting him from the harsh Latverian winter. Doom moved to America to further his scientific genius, but after an unfortunate explosion, Doom's face was horribly scarred. Combining his knowledge of the arcane magicks and science, Doom created a powerful suit of armor, moved back to Latveria, violently overthrew the government and proclaimed himself dictator for life. Since then he has battled nearly every heroic team on Earth and he won't stop until the whole world kneels before Doom.

Doom would definatly win this one. however looking at the roster are there many heros that will not win against the majority of the capcom cht? :venom:


Dhalsim never got his butt handed to him by Squirrel Girl.


Yeahm kind of a poor match up, doom is better in every way, even in sorcery/mysticism


Mystic vs. Mystic!!!Doom, no question!....1003%, lop-sided, unfair-advantage, beat-down!!!Behold the might of DOOM!!!!!!!


Um... one-sided victory. Doom's defense is ridiculous and he's got projectiles for every occasion. And let's not forget Doom has his molecular shield, which gives him 360 protection AND does major chip damage if blocked. Speaking of which, it's the best assist in the game, which means he beats Dhalsim on Assists as well. Doom's even got a launcher that can launch people from BEHIND him; how CRAZY is that?! Doom is the Ultimate Tank/Turtle character; I've even seen people requesting matches against non-Doom players because he's abused so much. You don't even have to fight with Doom; just run through all of his specials and hypers and see who's left standing after 2 minutes.In Dhalsim's defense, he's got range, teleportation, a nice super, and quick air dashing when in flight. He also But against Doom, all the effort goes to waste; you could hit this guy a million times, and he'll have health left over.
