Ned Cecil has helped Von Doom Industries get millions of money. As the Fantastic Four rose to popularity exceeding VDI, Cecil wanted Victor Von Doom to withdraw from VDI. As a result, Cecil was followed by Von Doom. He told Victor to go back to Latveria and got killed by a lightning bolt through his chest.
