Bio

Stephen Strange was originally a brilliant yet arrogant neurosurgeon but suffered a nearly fatal car accident that left his hands crippled and unable to perform surgery. After conventional medicine and treatments failed to cure his hands Strange embarked in a search that led him to the Ancient One and was introduced to a new world of magic. He became a student of the Ancient One, mastering the Mystic Arts and now serves as one of Earth's protectors against extradimensional forces that threaten reality.

Source Key

  • DS = Doctor Strange (2016)
  • TR = Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
  • IW = Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
  • EG = Avengers: Endgame (2019)
  • GotG = Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
  • DSP = Marvel's Doctor Strange Prelude Infinite Comic #1 (Comic)
  • IWP = Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War Prelude (Comic)

Spells and Magic

"You're full of tricks, wizard."

The MCU's debut of sorcery shifts away from the invocation and patron based magic of the comic source material in favor of the harnessing of mystical energies from other dimensions in order to achieve a variety of effects including, but not limited to, the formation of mystic weapons and shields. Strange learns the Mystic Arts at a rate faster than any student before him largely due to his photographic memory and his latent talent for sorcery. While trapped in a time loop in his battle against Dormammu for an indefinite amount of time, Strange would gain even further mastery of his powers.

Eldritch Weapons:

Shields:

Portals:

Mirror Dimension:

Transmutation:

Astral Form:

Other/Misc:

Physical Abilities

"Fight! Fight like your life depended on it! Because one day, it may."

In addition to learning the Mystic Arts, Strange was instructed in the martial arts as well by the Ancient One and Mordo so that he may be prepared for any danger that threatens his reality. Strange has also demonstrated an impressive degree of endurance and willpower.

Reaction Speed:

Durability/Endurance:

Fighting Skill:

Cloak of Levitation

"Wow, you're a seriously loyal piece of outerwear, aren't you?"

The Cloak of Levitation acts in much the same way as its original comic counterpart, granting the power of flight/levitation when worn and responding to the commands of the wearer's thoughts. This incarnation of the cloak possesses its own will as it can act and move independently on its own accord. The Cloak chose Doctor Strange to be its bearer and will often protect Strange from dangers while in combat.

Flight/Levitation:

Defense/Protection:

Eye of Agamotto

"Just as you gave Kaecilius powers from your dimension, I've brought a little power from mine."

The Eye of Agamotto is a powerful mystic artifact created by the original Sorcerer Supreme and father of the Mystic Arts, the mighty Agamotto. One massive deviation from the comics this incarnation of the Eye has is that it possesses one of the six Infinity Stones, the Time Stone. Using the ability of sorcerers to channel and manipulate arcane energies, Doctor Strange can use the energies of the Eye to manipulate time in a myriad of ways.

Nicely done.

Granted he was still just an apprentice in the movie but here's hoping he gets into more solid magic later on and not be so weapon focused. The cup scenario with Thor is a good start but it's just that there's so many spells and the creativity it can bring is immense, so do we really need sorcerers fighting with whips and disc shields so much?

I agree. I do think he'll progress since he's still pretty much a noob at magic. Though I know Laylah stated the film wasn't that great, @laylah may also want to check the thread out

Yeah, he's vastly inferior to his comic counterpart in terms of power-level.

Wow so strange has some sort of reality alteration considering what he did with thors mug in the end credits scene? Interesting

@wastelandman: I know, such as his first attempt at casting the shields, one failed. But if you look at the Ancient One, even she seemed to use magic of the same type (though better than everyone else). Perhaps she simply held back, using only what she felt necessary or maybe her power had grown weaker (this part wasn't explored much despite the subject of her age being brought up). But it seemed a bit odd.

Overall I liked it but I can see why she had issues with it. I just went in with the understanding that this would be a different universe's version with a different take. And honestly it wasn't any more off than several of the alternate versions of him. I went it with reserved expectations and little demands and thought it did enough of the things that were personally important.

Yeah, judging by the amount of books he read in the movie it's expected and implied he'd know more spells than shown in the movie. Just not necessarily combat magic, and he definitely didn't get much in the way of opportunity to work on that aspect before being thrust into the conflict. Still think Derrickson could have done better with that (besides the world bending stuff which was cool). Plus it'd naturally make sense that he'd focus on further expanding his magic after the main events of the movie.

It's good to see a respect thread for MCU Strange here.

I've always liked a darker and more serious Strange, so that may be the reason why the movie didn't appeal so much to me.

Without the stone he may be somewhere between Thor and Iron Man. At least for now until we see him learn more magic.

@wastelandman: Just a tip, but the comic Avengers Infinity War Prelude#2 shows more clearly how Stephen BFR'ed Loki in Ragnarok:

I think it might be good to add it and at least shows that Strange didn't need something as prep to have pulled that.

@wastelandman: Great. Tag me when you do finish it (if you remember).

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Strange "transmutate" a black hole Thanos threw at him? It looked like a black hole to me but I'm not sure. And do you remember when Strange restrained Thanos and tried to take off the Infinity Gauntlet? That spell reminded me of Crimson Bands of Cyttorak. I know it didn't completely look like them, but they were red and he used them to restrain Thanos.

Yeah he was. I'm glad they're showing Strange's progression as a sorcerer.

I don't know if it classifies as a black hole but it was definitely a vortex of some kind that was warping space around it (which makes sense since it was created by the space stone). Those metallic restraints he summoned reminded me of the Crimson Bands too but the Artbook listed the artifact he used to restrain Kaecilius as the Crimson Bands which is pretty lame but this could be a cool retcon.

It looked like it had the event horizon, so it might actually be a black hole. I don't know. I'll watch the movie again this weekend so I'll try to pay more attention to that part. Regardless, transmutating a hole in space is impressive even if it's not a black hole.

Those metallic restraints he summoned reminded me of the Crimson Bands too but the Artbook listed the artifact he used to restrain Kaecilius as the Crimson Bands which is pretty lame but this could be a cool retcon.

Yeah, I saw that too and it was pretty stupid. The artifact looked kinda goofy IMO and it wasn't crimson at all.
