The Boomsday Project has been my dream for as long as I can remember. A few months, give or take. And Boom Labs is a place where the finest minds in “science” can gather in fellowship, share knowledge, and irresponsibly carry out improbably destructive experiments that’ll bring the world to its knees! And I’m tellin’ ya, it’s going GREAT. A day doesn’t go by when something doesn’t explode, or mutate, or tear a hole in the space time continuum. If my career to date, and my doctorate in explosions, have taught me one thing, it’s that stuff blowin’ up is how you know you’re makin’ real progress.
~ Dr. Boom

Dr. Boom is an antagonist originating in World of Warcraft, before becoming a recurring villain in the spinoff game Hearthstone. First appearing in the Goblins and Gnomes expansion, Dr. Boom later got his own expansion in The Boomsday Project, and became one of the leaders of the League of E.V.I.L. in the Year of the Dragon, representing the Warrior class.

Since The Boomsday Project, he was voiced by John DiMaggio, who also played Bender Bending Rodríguez in Futurama, the Joker in Batman: Under the Red Hood, Hannibal McFist in Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, Lobo in Justice League Action, and Brother Blood in Teen Titans.

Personality

Dr. Boom is a deranged mad scientist with an obsession for explosions and destruction, creating explosive devices and reveling as he watches them go off. He claims that destruction brings progress, and wishes to bring the world to its knees, though does not act out any malicious intentions besides his lust of explosions. He also likes making comments, sometimes with light-hearted sarcasm.

Biography

World of Warcraft

My former protege, Sparky Uberthruster, wouldn't wear his helmet while down here and one day transformed into the infamous Dr. Boom! And he stole off to the northeast with most of our sapping equipment! He and his Boom Bots have been a menace to Area 52 ever since.
~ Lead Sapper Blastfizzle explaining Dr. Boom's origins.

Sparky Uberthruster was a goblin scientist located in Area 52 in the Netherstorm dimension, and protege to Lead Sapper Blastfizzle. Because he refused to wear his protective helmet, Sparky was driven insane by the Netherstorm's radiation and began calling himself Dr. Boom, stealing his former team's sapping equipment setting up a camp (which he named the Camp of Boom) in a remote area near Area 52 and building an army of exploding Boom Bots. Lead Sapper Blastfizzle requests players to defeat Dr. Boom by attacking his camp with bombs.

Hearthstone

Goblins vs. Gnomes

In this expansion, Dr. Boom made his first appearance in Hearthstone as a neutral legendary who summons two Boom Bots which deal damage to random enemies when destroyed. Due to the chaotic nature of the Boom Bots, Dr. Boom became very popular among the player base, which influenced his appearances as an antagonist in the later expansions.

The Boomsday Project

Dr. Boom is the overseer and head scientist of Boom Labs, a lab he built in Netherstorm. He hired several scientists (most of which are morally questionable) to assist him in designing his "Boomsday Project". He is also the final boss of each chapter of the Puzzle Lab, after completing all of the puzzle experiments. He appears as Dr. Boom, Mad Genius, a Warrior hero card with a randomized Hero Power to represent his chaotic personality and lack of planning as he had created a goblin mech suit without having any idea how it would work.

Rise of Shadows

At some point, Dr. Boom's lab was completely destroyed, and all of his associates and creations had abandoned him. He later got an invitation by Rafaam to join the League of E.V.I.L. to rekindle his dreams of bringing his explosive desires to life. Equipped with a jetpack and metal mask, Boom participated in the Great Dalaran Heist by sneaking into Dalaran's sewers to attach rockets to the floating city in order for the League to control it once they overthrow the Kirin Tor mages. He appears as the warrior minion Blastmaster Boom, who summons several Boom Bots for each Bomb shuffled into the opponent's deck, as well as several warrior cards involving shuffling bombs into the opponent's deck so that Blastmaster Boom can activate his ability.

Descent of Dragons / Galakrond's Awakening

Dr. Boom assisted the rest of the League of E.V.I.L. with resurrecting the proto-dragon Galakrond, each in their own ways. In Boom's case, he revived Galakrond by augmenting him with mechanical parts, turning him into Galakrond, the Unbreakable.

In Galakrond's Awakening, the League of E.V.I.L. battled with the League of Explorers. Dr. Boom used a large mechanical claw to capture Reno Jackson and imprison him in Violet Hold alongside the Uldum citizens that the League kidnapped. Eventually, Brann Bronzebeard rescued them and defeated Dr. Boom, but Boom's current status remains unknown.

Trivia

  • He is named after notorious Marvel supervillain Doctor Doom. His Blastmaster appearance is also based on Dr. Doom's mask.
  • His Mad Genius and Blastmaster incarnations' entry themes are sampled from the second part of the track "Ts Have It" from the Warlords of Draenor expansion of WoW.
  • Despite the Warrior class being associated with the theme of shuffling bombs in Rise of Shadows, Dr. Boom was not the first to use the mechanic in Hearthstone: a neutral minion named Seaforium Bomber had this effect first, though such a theme did not have any synergy at the time. However, she is a goblin just like Dr. Boom.
