History

Information about Doop's origins, as with anything else about "him" (or her or it), is difficult to verify. According to Captain America, the U.S. government created him in a secret Cold War weapons project, but that doesn't explain why he speaks an alien language (which somehow everyone understood anyway). Allegedly, he had a role in the fall of communism in the Eastern Bloc. At some point he met Wolverine. At some other point, during an affair with a woman, Doop ditched her to be with the private detective her husband hired to find him.[1]

Doop joined the mutant team X-Force as their official videographer. Soon afterward, most of X-Force died, and the survivors (including Doop) became X-Statix. There was some suspicion that he had a hidden agenda; if so, nothing ever came of it. He became a popular member, whose line of official merchandise sold well.

In X-Statix's penultimate adventure, Doop's brain exploded. His teammates and the Avengers competed to find the scattered parts and reassemble them. Able to function with his secondary brain, Doop fought Thor for the last part and restored his primary brain.[2]

Apparently, Doop died in a hail of bullets, as did the rest of X-Statix.[3] A similar being (if not Doop himself) fell from space in Costa Rica, where it met Havok and Polaris, who called it Daap. It was most likely Doop himself, as he in shown in previews for the Nation X miniseries.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Doop's powers seemed to appear as needed. They could have been magical, psionic, or cosmic in nature.

  • Levitation: Doop could manipulate gravitons to float in place or to move quickly.
  • Cohesion: Doop could change his size and shape at will. He could also shift his form to "heal" wounds. When dispersed, parts of his body could reassemble themselves. For some reason, parts of his brain could not reassemble, possibly because of a redundant brain in his lower torso.
  • Dimension Gate: Doop could assimilate objects, usually by mouth, and send them into another dimension (Doop Land) for storage. Doop Land has significant differences from our dimension.[4]
  • Psionic Blast: Doop could fire psionic blasts of unknown strength.
  • Psionic Shield: For a short time, Doop could protect himself and others nearby from telepathic probes.
  • Temporal Immunity: Doop could not be displaced in time.

Known Abilities: professional-level videographer
Strength Level: unknown, but possibly as high as Class 100, since he could survive a battle with Thor
