Knowledge Waits: Nine Times Doctor Doom Cheated Death Itself

This is the latest in a feature where I just share some bit of comic book history that interests me. Here is a collection of all of the installments in the feature so far.

A few years back, I did a piece about times where Doctor Doom was thought to be dead. A reader asked if I could show how Doom SURVIVED those times, so, well, here is that!

Doom’s first “death” came in Fantastic Four #6 (by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers) where he first teamed up with Namor the Sub-Mariner, but then betrayed him, leading to quite a tussle between the two…

Doom turned up alive in Fantastic Four #10 (by Lee, Kirby and Ayers) with the following explanation…

Doom’s next “death” happened at the end of that issue, after he and Reed switch back to their proper bodies…

In Fantastic Four #16 (by Lee, Kirby and Ayers), the Fantastic Four go to the Microverse, where they discover what happened to Doom…

Doom somehow manages to evade dying at the end of the issue. The NEXT issue, however…

In Fantastic Four #17 (by Lee, Kirby and Ayers), Doom seemingly plummets to his death…

Since Doom has a jet pack, I always felt that this death was iffy as a death, but they DID play it like he died.
