Sneak Peek the origins of Marvel Comics' 'Baron Mordo' on the news that Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor will co-star as the evil sorceror in Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange", directed by Scott Derrickson, with Benedict Cumberbatch as 'Stephen Strange' and Tilda Swinton as 'The Ancient One':
"I am doing 'Doctor Strange'," confirmed Ejiofor, "and I’m incredibly excited about it."
Created by writer Stan Lee and co-plotter, illustrator Steve Ditko for Marvel Comics, Mordo has magical abilities derived from years of studying 'black magic' and the mystic arts...
...including hypnotism, mesmerism, thought-casting, and illusion casting.
He can separate his astral form from his body, allowing him to become intangible and invisible to most beings.
He can project deadly force blasts using magic, can teleport inter-dimensionally and manipulate many forms of magical energy, including tapping extra-dimensional energy by invoking entities or objects of power existing in dimensions tangential to Earth's through the recitation of spells.
He can also summon demons, but often does not have enough power to force them to do what he wants them to do.
