Stephen Vincent Strange

Doctor Strange




Strange started out as extremely egotistical, but after his ordeal in the Himalayas (see below), he went through an extreme humbling experience.  However, this is not to say that he is constantly downplaying his importance.  He knows full well how much power he has, and he is aware of what it means to have the title “Sorcerer Supreme.”  He has learned some wisdom from the Ancient One, and he tries to use it to the best of his ability.  He has kindness in his heart - especially for children, and takes his responsibilities extremely seriously.  He knows that peoples lives depend on him, and he doesn’t treat that lightly.  This does not mean that he is totally devoid of humor - in fact, he is quite fond of using his magical background to confound those of a more scientific inclination.  He takes great amusement in seeing people try to explain away his powers.  

Strange’s biggest fear is that he’ll become like he used to be - egotistical and uncaring about others.  He knows that in combination with his powers, that would result in many lives being lost.  He fears failure, and letting down the people he cares about.  Strange also has a fear of uselessness, as he is still haunted by how inept he was made when the bones in his hands shattered.  That’s why he learned martial arts - so if he was ever separated from his powers, he could still protect his loved ones.

Strange was one of the best neurosurgeons before he became Sorcerer Supreme.  He was renowned internationally, and he took great pride in this.  In fact, a bit too much pride.  The only failure he ever experienced was when he had to operate on a little girl - his sister - and lost her.  The loss and defeat shook Strange to his core, and he became more determined than ever to become the best at his trade, only refusing to operate on children, as remnants of his sister’s death still haunted him.  
However, years later, Strange was in a car accident, which completely shattered the bones in his hands.  Because of this, he could never practice neurosurgery again.  Refusing to accept this defeat, Strange spent all his funds going to doctors around the world, trying to find someone to fix his hands.  He was soon left penniless, wandering around performing back-alley medical procedures.  But when he had lost all hope, he heard of a hermit in the Himalayas known only as the Ancient One.  Desperate, Strange seeked the old man out, only to be refused help because of his selfish nature.  Strange was allowed to stay in the monastery, however, as the Ancient One did see some good left in Strange’s heart, which he attempted on numerous occasions to bring to the surface.  
Strange finally proved himself worthy when he selflessly saved the Ancient One from an attack by Mordo, one of his ambitious disciples.  After defeating Mordo, the Ancient One started tutoring Strange in the mystic arts.  
Under the Ancient One’s tutelage, Strange battled many mystical foes.  However, in battle against Dormammu - a mystical entity, or rather demon - the Ancient One was killed, and he passed on his title of Sorcerer Supreme to Strange, who used his increased power to defeat Dormammu.
Strange has spent his time since then continuing to battle evil, mystical forces, occasionally helping out other heroes, though mainly working by himself.  He was recently made aware of a rip in the universe, and knowing it to have originated at S.H.I.E.L.D., he contacted Fury, in hopes he could be of assistance with the disturbance.      

Doctor Strange has been described as "the mightiest magician in the cosmos", and as "more powerful by far than any of your fellow humanoids" by Eternity, the sentience of the Marvel Universe.
Strange draws power from several mystical entities, such as the Vishanti (Hoggoth, Oshtur, and Agamotto) and the Octessence (Balthakk, Cyttorak, Farallah, Ikonn, Krakkan, Raggadorr, Valtorr, and Watoomb). These entities usually lend their power to a particular effect, such as the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, which are used by Strange to entrap foes.  
Strange can use magic to achieve virtually any effect he desires, such as flight,[citation needed] immortality, energy blasts, teleportation, astral projection, telepathy, the creation of materials such as food and water, creating planet-wide protective shields, restoring himself from bodily destruction, resurrecting the dead, stopping and reversing time, sealing black holes, restoring universes, absorbing enough power to unconsciously destroy galaxies, growing to the size of and merging with universal concepts, and co-operatively channeling the mass of the entire Marvel Universe.  
In addition to his magical abilities, Strange is a skilled neurosurgeon and is also trained in several martial arts disciplines.

In this farewell
There’s no blood
There’s no alibi
‘Cause I’ve drawn regret
From the truth
Of a thousand lies

So let mercy come
And wash away
What I’ve done
