"Doctor Strange" Updates



Sneak Peek "Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme", for more insights into the origins of the Marvel superhero, plus take another look @ the characters appearing in the upcoming Marvel Studios feature starring Benedict Cumberbatch:


Characters will include 'Jericho Drumm', aka 'Brother Voodoo, 'Clea', 'The Ancient One', 'Baron Mordo', 'Wong' and 'Umar'.


"...'Doctor Stephen Strange' is a brilliant but egotistical neurosurgeon who only cares about wealth from his career.


"However, a car accident damages his hands, shattering the bones. The damage effectively ends his ability to conduct surgery, since his hands now tremble uncontrollably. Too proud to take on a teaching job, Strange desperately begins to search for a way to restore his hands, consulting various doctors, homeopathic treatments and traveling around the world to remote regions for exotic cures.


Strange locates a hermit called the 'Ancient One' (who is actually the Earth's 'Sorcerer Supreme') in the Himalayas. The Ancient One refuses to help Strange because of his selfishness, but senses a good side that he attempts to bring to the surface.


"He fails, but Strange's goodness appears when he discovers the Ancient One's disciple, 'Baron Mordo' attempting to kill the old man. 


"After Strange thwarts Mordo's plans, (and becomes Mordo's most enduring enemy), the Ancient One teaches him the mystic arts.

"Strange is aided by 'Clea' who is eventually revealed to be Dormammu's niece.


"When Strange helps a weakened Dormammu drive off the rampaging 'Mindless Ones' and return them to their prison...


"...he is allowed to leave unchallenged..."
