Although not an evil man, Dr. Ridgeway has consistently been insensitive to the feelings of others. It's a miracle that he got married but he happened to find a woman who was more interested in the prestige of marrying a doctor than and didn't care that much about the feelings of others herself. They were quite a match.
They had one child and both of them fought about what kind of future their son should have. Dr. Ridgeway wanted a son who was heroic and admirable and therefore someone who could make him proud. Carol Ridgeway wanted someone more politically ambitious who might lead her to hob-nob with governors and the wealthy elite of society. As Bobby demonstrated natural talent for more physical, less political ambitions, Carol began to lose interest and divorced her husband. Dr. Ridgeway barely noticed that she left because he was so proud of his son, the hero.
When Bobby joined Omniteam, Dr. Ridgeway got the opportunity to be more involved personally with being a hero. He no longer had to live vicariously through his son. He had a whole team of heroes to associate with.
When the team learned of the origin of the alien technology that had given them their powers to begin with, Dr. Ridgeway got an even better opportunity. Leaving his son behind on Earth, Dr. Ridgeway left with the aliens for a while to learn alien physiology. When he came back, he was very helpful to all beings with altered physiology and he became quite sought out by other mutants and heroes to help with their unique physiological needs. Dr. Ridgeway, under the codename Doc, became famous as the doctor to the heroes. His fantasies came true.
