He didn't say he isn't a villain, he said that he isn't a criminal.
He has been making this point about world domination not being a crime since... at least when Marvel first got a website and had little videos explaining it.
And, he's right. The example he gives is apt, a cop can't stop a guy from wanting to take over the world.
More importantly, nobleman doesn't mean a person who acts nobly, it means a royal. And Dr. Doom is a royal, and there for free from prosecution for most crimes any way. Usually attempted murder/attempted mass murder, would over ride that.
The point is that he isn't a criminal by law... not that he is a good person.
Admittedly, I didn't watch the episode, I looked it up after reading this, and just had a guy reading a quote.
I always viewed him as a guy who views himself as noble, wants to be noble... but isn't.
He likes the illusion. He likes the Delusion.
