Re: "I am Doom...What Gods Dare Stand Against Me"---The official Dr. Doom Thread
Playing the piano does make Doom a better supervillain in one way. But it's not in his villainous plots, but just the way he carries himself. It gives him more of a classical air of dignity. I imagine he would be like the Bond villain Drax (Michel Lonsdale) in Moonraker where he was playing something like Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven while lost in reverie. The only other instrument I can imagine Doom playing is the violin. And it would be all classical music - no jazz or rock 'n' roll.
A villain like Doom would never play a brass or wind instrument or the drums. They're probably too undignified. And a cello, double bass or any other string instrument would be too unweildy.
