Doom Image

Isn't the current main image (http://www.marvel.com/universe/Image:DrDoom.jpg) the House Of M Dr. Doom and not the regular Dr.Doom?

Yes, it was. I've replaced it. Stuart Vandal 15:40, 12 March 2006 (EST)

I love that new image with the flag; can anyone tell me where it's from? lordmagnusen

Capitalization

Ok...I've been going around and around about this. Is the "von" in his name supposed to be capitalized? I realize that its capitalized in the link to his name, but when written in normal text, which is it? It would seem that because it's not really a name but something like "of" that it wouldn't be. Anyone have any ideas? PseudoSherlock 20:32, 10 July 2006 (EDT)

It should be without capitalization. I have never even seen it writed with capitalization. --Wezqu 20:38, 10 July 2006 (EDT)

Doing a quick scan of a few stray issues, I would say that "von" should be uncapitalized. I don't know if this is official, though. It is not unthinkable that it might have been capitalized by some letterer/writer at some point in time. Amongst my many other small edits, I've been trying to make the links match the spelling of the article whenever I run across it. --Lonesome Pinky 21:35, 10 July 2006 (EDT)

I think that it should be capitalized.

The general rule is to not capitalize it, unless you're not using his first name (as in Dr. Von Doom, or just Von Doom), or, of course, starting a sentence with it. We can't tell if a letterer capitalized it, as most comics lettering is done in capitals; and we could only know if a writer did if we see the script. lordmagnusen

Also to put end to this conversation he was listed as "Victor von Doom" in OHotMU: Fantastic Four (2005). So it is the right way to write his name. Also its little odd that people don't know how "von" should be writen. --Wezqu 16:00, 15 September 2007 (EDT)

Stats

The stats seem awfuly high; his intelligence shouldn't be 7, since he's not omniscient, it should be a 6. As for his physical attributes, withouth the armor, he's just a regular (if magic using and very intelligent) human. lordmagnusen
