Darth Vader (formerly known as Anakin Skywalker) is a character from the Star Wars series and one of the main villains. He stared in the 49th episode of Death Battle, Darth Vader VS Doctor Doom, where he fought Marvel villain Doctor Doom.
Born Anakin Skywalker, Vader was a slave on Tatooine until a Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn, freed him under the assumption that he was the Chosen One for the Jedi Order. Under the tutelage of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin would rise up to become a Jedi Knight, and was known as a great fighter and a skillful pilot. However, he was also viewed a bit arrogant, and had some temper issues.
Anakin was also friends with Chancellor Palpatine, whom soon learned that was the Sith Lord, Darth Sidious. Anakin soon found himself manipulated by him, until finally he was turned over to the dark side. He led Order 66, killing all his Jedi brethren, until he was confronted by Obi-Wan at Mustafar. After a long and brutal battle, Anakin lost both of his legs and his left arm, and was badly burned by lava. His master soon found him, and he was given cybernetic limbs, and a suit in order to be kept alive. Anakin was gone, and a new Sith Lord was born: Darth Vader.
