And, regarding Ben's cure, it seems that the real simple explanation would be that the cure could work but something disastrous has to happen. Like a life has to be traded for a life or something; or it was only Doom's physiology that made the machine work in the first place.
Well, that doesn't make it a sacrifice, just makes him feel guilty. The most straight forward thing would be that he chooses not to cure himself in order to save the day and the cure is lost in the process. Although I don't think they need to have a cure at all.
