The Wong wiki last edited by N00beditor3 on 06/23/17 03:17PM View full history

Origin

Wong was brought to the Ancient One when he was only 4 years old by his father, Hamir the Hermit. While there he became a martial arts master, but doesn't get a chance to practice much as a manservant. Upon reaching adulthood, Wong was sent to America to serve Dr. Strange. While there, Strange has become the new Sorcerer Supreme.

Creation

Wong was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in Strange Tales #110 (1963).

Mayor Story Arcs

Wong and Topaz were then captured by Urthona, in an effort to obtain certain mystic talismans and texts. While there Wong was tortured and disfigured by the fiend. To rescue them, Strange attempted to destroy the artifacts but instead sent the to Agamotto. With the artifacts no longer on Earth, an ancient spell was lifted that protected Earth from various, powerful entities.

Strange then cast a spell to make everyone think he was dead, leaving Wong in charge of his estate. During this period Strange defeated many of the creatures freed by the missing artifacts, like Shuma-Gorath. After Strange defeated Shuma-Gorath, he reversed the spell. Wong was overjoyed to see his master was still alive. Soon the rest of the world learned Strange was still alive.

Bride of Wong

When Imei Chang, Wong's intended bride, was turned into a horrible demonic creature, Wong asked Strange for help. Unfortunately Strange was tied up with other, more pressing matters. This resulted in a small falling out between Wong and Strange. When Strange eventually had the time to aid his long time ally, he found that Imei was dead and that this was just a creature imitating her.

Powers and Abilities

Wong has no superhuman powers, he has great knowledge about the magical and supernatural world. He is also very adept in martial arts having trained Dr. Strange in them. Even Strange himself said 'In some areas he's my servant, in others, my master'. Meaning that Wong trained him.

Wong appears in the live-action Doctor Strange movie, portrayed by British actor Benedict Wong. He was heavily reimagined for the film, as the director did not want to be seen as presenting outdated racial stereotypes. He is depicted as a very serious man, with his deadpan reactions providing much of the film's humor. He is also shown to be a closet Beyonce fan.

In the movie, rather than being Doctor Strange's butler, Wong is instead a magic instructor and librarian at Kamar-Taj, and assists in Strange's training. He is killed by Kaecillius and his followers during the climax of the movie, but is revived when Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto (revealed to be the Time Stone) to save him.

Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Benedict Wong will reprise his role in the third Avengers movie.
