Spoiler warning


I have a crazy theory about Devoth. I know at first this will sound outlandish, but just hear me out. Now I'm not saying that this is necessarily true, but I think there might at least be a chance there is something to it. I think that Devoth, The Dark Lord might be none other than John Romero. I know, sounds insane but before you walk away, just hear what I have to say. Remember that Davoth is the true creator, now Doom is widely considered to be John Romero's creation. Parallel there, yes but there is no real reason to believe that this means they are the same. But now listen to, Davoth was exiled by the Maykrs and The Father, stole his powers of creation from him. Now what happened to John Romero? Despite being the co founder of id he was asked to leave the compony. There is also a noticeable parallel there. But listen to this. As you know Davoth looks a lot like Doomguy. Now its entirely possible that he may have just taken his form, but listen to this. You know the iconic original doom box art? That picture was actually created with real humans modeling. An guess who the model for Doomguy is. John Romero himself. So what do you think of the theory? Is it true? Well, I certainly wouldn't put money on it. Really all these things I mentioned have much more simple possible answers that are probably more likely. This is more of a fun idea I had about it and and interesting way of looking at it. Again I'm not saying it's true or even that I believe it. It's just an interesting thought.
