So you’re taking up the weapons you need to fight whatever threat you perceive looming, including the Space Sword. Doom also feels that he is the most worthy of wielding the sword, although the Hulkling has a few things to say about it, leading to the Hulkling attacking Doom.

However, despite his evil nature, Doom wishes to stop whatever threats he feels looming, which could make him a hero in some eyes. His methods, as usual, are extreme: stealing items like the Sword, for example. In true Doctor Doom fashion, he justifies his actions by calling them a “moral necessity.”
