Doctor Doom's Castle

Country: Latveria
City: Doomstadt
First appearance: Fantastic Four #5 (July, 1962)

Castle Doom is highly fortified with extreme measures such as Doom-Knights, Warrior Robots, human Latverian Guardsmen, Guardian Robots for detection and protection. Also included in Doom's stronghold are stunners, shock fields, gas emitters, and possibly Rainbow Missiles or Vortex Machines. 


Earth-1610 (Ultimate)
The devastating Ultimatum event, which caused global catastrophe, Latveria suffered a little ice age; covering the entire nation under deep snow and ice, including Castle Damme.

Earth-295 (Age of Apocalypse)
An ancient castle, where Victor von Doom was raised as royalty in it's ruins. The fate of the castle following a local Mutant uprising, remains unknown.

The Avengers (Earth-616) brought Doom's Time Machine and their alternate counterparts back to Doom's stateside castle in order to repair the device and return history back to normal. As the Scarlet Centurion appeared to reveal the whole ordeal was actually orchestrated by him to take over the Earth-689, Goliath shrank down to Ant-Man size and activated the time machine, sending the Centurion into the far future, and the Avengers back to their own version of history. The Watcher appeared and explained to the leader that the Scarlet Centurion was formally known as the time traveler Rama Tut, and after his meeting with Dr. Doom became the Centurion. Having defeated the Centurion, the Avengers sent him to the year 4,000, where he would become Kang the Conqueror.

Earth-58163 (House of M)
Situated in New Latveria, one of the last remaining Human societies in a Mutant dominated world. Castle Doom, serves as the royal palace to the Latverian Royal Family, the von Doom's.

Earth-2149 (Zombiverse)
Castle Doomstadt is besieged by Zombified Super-Heroes (despite being defended by a magical force-field), as it is the last remaining location on Earth which has any uninfected Humans. Unfortunately, several hordes of Zombified Super-Heroes break through the magical force-field protecting the castle, thus the castle is ransacked by the Zombies and infect the available Humans (thankfully the Latverian civilians are teleported safely into a different dimension by Doctor Doom).

Earth-928 (2099 A.D.)
During Doom's absence, Doom's Castle fell in ruins under the reign of Tiger Wylde who prefers rules from Gojradia. It was later rebuilt under Doom's rule, between Antikva Village and Gojradia, as a link between old and new Latveria, and Doom's authority on them.

Earth-9997 (Earth-X)
Castle Doom, formally served as the residence of Victor von Doom (until his death), and then served as the residence of Reed Richards (who had taken to wearing a Dr. Doom's armor and living in Doom's old castle). Following the construction of the "Human Torches", Reed Richards resumed residence at Castle Doom with Benjamin Grimm (Thing) and his family (Alicia Masters-Grimm/Buzz Grimm/Chuck Grimm) as well as Adam Warlock (Him) and Ayesha (Her).

Earth-311 (1602)
The Four from the Fantastick were imprisoned in Castle Doom, by Count Otto von Doom. The castle was attacked by a collection of heroes who tried to free the Four from the Fantastick.
