A selection of Doctor Strange’s most terrifying stories to date! 

You do not become the Supreme Sorcerer by playing pranks at children’s birthday parties. Rather than that, you must regularly confront the most heinous dangers conceivable. And you get to do it all over again as a reward. Though he has not spent his whole Super Hero career as the Sorcerer Supreme, Master of the Mystic Arts, Doctor Stephen Strange has seen his share of diabolical demons and frightful ghouls—all in the service of keeping reality intact and functioning smoothly! 

Doctor Strange’s most perilous encounters, from this or the next realm, are chronicled in these comic tales on Marvel Unlimited. 

SAGA OF SHUMA AND GORATH 

Scariest Doctro Strange Stories

Doctor Strange has faced a variety of terrible monsters focused on conquest and enslavement throughout the years. Shuma-Gorath, who originated in a realm diametrically opposed to Strange’s, made the leap and fed on the Sorcerer Supreme in MARVEL PREMIERE (1972) #10. Strange had not yet assumed the title, though, and Shuma-Gorath sought for the Ancient One, his master. Strange’s own anguish was utilized as a means of torment by the monster. 

Shuma-Gorath forced Strange to experience being buried alive, replete with dirt filling his lungs, prior to unveiling his monstrous appearance. Strange shifted the battleground within the Ancient One’s mind after witnessing the being’s real strength. There, the monster forced the wizard to confront his greatest adversaries, revealing their one-eyed, tentacled form in the process. Strange understood that he would have to do a heinous crime to defeat his adversary, one that almost drove him to quit wizardry entirely.

Shuma-Gorath claims New York in MIGHTY AVENGERS (2013) #2. 

Strange thwarted the evil god’s efforts at dominion and has since battled him several times. During the catastrophe of INFINITY, Ebony Maw gained control of Strange and used him to return Shuma-Gorath to this dimension. As shown in MIGHTY AVENGERS (2013) #2-3, the assault drew together a new band of heroes who collaborated to vanquish the creature! 

DRAMA IN DRACULA’S DARKHOLD 

Scariest Doctro Strange Stories

For generations, Dracula has been skulking about the Marvel Universe. He reawakened in the present day in TOMB OF DRACULA (1972) and wreaked havoc on the globe from there. As seen in DOCTOR STRANGE (1974) #14, Stephen Strange has previously faced the bloodsucker and almost escaped. However, in issues #59–62, the vampire king reappeared to wreak havoc on the Sorcerer Supreme—and on the whole planet. This time, Dracula wanted to employ not only his own might, but also that of the Darkhold, an ancient book of terrible sorcery. 

Strange discovered a magic hidden in the Darkhold called the Montesi Formula that may rid the world of vampires after a botched effort to take the tome from Avengers Mansion! To carry out the spell, he enlisted the assistance of Wong, Hannibal King, Frank Drake, and Blade in locating the book in its new hiding place: Baron Mordo’s castle! Strange sent the vampire to another dimension during a bloodcurdling combat in this reality, giving the others time to develop the Montesi Formula. The warriors reappeared just in time for those gathering to succeed in eliminating vampires from the planet…but only temporarily, since the spell was subsequently reversed. 

THE UNUSUAL SIMULACRUM 

Scariest Doctro Strange Stories

What could be more unsettling than confronting an evil version of yourself? Particularly one who believes you are the imposter! Strange departed the continuing Infinity War at Captain America’s orders and returned to Earth alongside magical friends the Scarlet Witch, Doctor Druid, Agatha Harkness, and Shaman of Alpha Flight in DOCTOR STRANGE, SORCERER SUPREME (1988) #46-47. They saw an unsettling scenario, as the majority of the world’s population had been frozen in place by Adam Warlock’s malevolent future counterpart, the Magus. While examining the wreckage, the mystical team learned a much more horrifying truth: Magus intended to destroy the whole world and replace it with his own warped version of reality! They got some assistance from Sleepwalker, but he remained silent as the heroes came under attack by a tiny army of demons intent on tearing them apart. That was nothing in comparison to a masked Strange emulating his (short) Super Hero appearance. This “sinister Strange” kidnapped and aggressively tormented the heroes. The entity, dubbed Necromancer, explained his origins and their connection to Counter-Earth. Although our hero eventually defeated this wicked doppelganger, the struggle is still fresh in Strange’s thoughts. A living memorial to what could have been. 

ENTRANCE TO NIGHTMARE

Scariest Doctro Strange Stories 

Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen met as juvenile runaways and became friends when they were both compelled to take drugs that activated their superhuman abilities. Johnson, as the crime-fighting pair Cloak and Dagger, have the ability to construct portals into the Darkforce Dimension, while Bowen possesses the ability to produce blades of light. Dagger once utilized her abilities to assist Cloak in overcoming the growing darkness he was experiencing from inside, which was compounded by the interdimensional evil Nightmare. Cloak requested a consultation with Doctor Strange, but the Master of the Mystic Arts had prepared a spell to fool the world into believing he had been assassinated by the Beyonder. 

In STRANGE TALES (1987) #7, the young heroes discovered Strange, only to have a massive hand emerge from Tyrone’s robe and drag everyone there into Nightmare’s world! As he had done several times before, the villain sought to destroy Strange while outlining how he intended to remake the world in his image. Cloak lost control of his Darkforce abilities during the subsequent struggle, and Dagger tried her best to assist him with her own. Eventually, light consumed the darkness, but you’ll have to read the issue to learn how! 

SUCCESS AND TORMENT 

Scariest Doctro Strange Stories

Doctor Victor Von Doom was already an extremely formidable force to contend with as a genius-level megalomaniac with the resources of an entire country at his disposal. However, he is a skilled sorcerer! As revealed in the famous Original Graphic Novel DOCTOR STRANGE & DOCTOR DOOM: TRIUMPH AND TORMENT, Doom delved further into the magical realm after the accident that left him disfigured and compelled him to wear his metal mask. When the Aged Genghis convened a gathering of the world’s foremost sorcerers, Doom and Doctor Strange attended. Doom requested aid in his mission to rescue his mother Cynthia’s soul from Mephisto after demonstrating his magical prowess. Cynthia was a high-level wizard herself who struck a bargain with the devil to establish her people as Latveria’s ruler before passing away when Victor was a baby. Strange flew to the devil world with Doom to assist in reclaiming Cynthia’s essence. Once there, the pair encountered a variety of monsters and creatures, none more deadly or cunning than Mephisto himself. Far more terrifying than the adversaries are the decisions that our two protagonists are forced to make when the devil gives them their hearts’ desires. When you will see as you read this one, it lives up to its name completely. 

WHAT APPALLS YOU, STEPHEN? 

Scariest Doctro Strange Stories

The title refers to a fortune cookie that Strange likes during a nice meal alone. He returned to the Sanctum Sanctorum and discovered Wong was gone. He sought him out to the Temple of Ganesha, where Wong had previously trained as a warrior monk. His study led him to another another world, this one inhabited by zombie oarsmen, monstrous sea serpents, and maybe the most terrifying denizen of all, the life-absorbing Electra. Not only did she seem to be in charge of everything there, but also of the gleaming metropolis of Ditkopolis (named in tribute to classic creator Steve Ditko). In return for Wong’s safety, Stephen agrees to assist Electra. She stated that her father had awarded her sister Celeste his power, which resulted in the city’s gradual demise. She desired the assistance of the Sorcerer Supreme in transferring that power to her. Strange learnt more about the sisters and how a fallen angel came between them while he was there. Though Ditkopolis and its environs were rife with grotesqueries, the most heinous of all came from a person desperate for undeserved adoration and power. Even when confronted with the obvious reality, Electra refused to accept it and lashed out, wishing to drag everyone into the gaping vacuum with her.

Doctor Strange 2 : Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Deleted Fight Scene – FanArt

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This res

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This resulted in some really fantastic battle sequences between the MCU’s two most powerful magic-wielders, but there’s been a lot of talk about more of it appearing in deleted scenes.

The majority of that attention has been focused on the sequel’s abandoned opening scene, in which Wanda Maximoff would have killed Earth-616’s Baron Mordo. She would have decapitated him and gave Strange the severed head when they first met at the farm, leaving little mistake about who Strange would face during Doctor Strange 2.

Over the last several months, concept art has also hinted more deleted sequences, including a flashback to Strange losing his sister at the lake and a tease showing the wicked Nightmare in action. Fans can now see more deleted Scarlet Witch action, which would have pitted her against Strange once again early in the Multiversal sequel.

Doctor Strange 2’s Deleted Scarlet Witch Battle Illustrator David Allcock released a collection of storyboard drawings including a previously uncovered deleted sequence from Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through Twitter user @itsjustanx. This scenario would have pitted Doctor Strange against the Scarlet Witch as Strange and America Chavez jumped across the Multiverse after leaving Kamar-Taj.

Strange uses his magic to free Chavez from the Scarlet Witch’s grasp while Chavez opens one of her star portals.

The scene when Chavez falls through with the blue light from her portal around her in-frame seems very similar to what appeared in the final cut of the film.

It would have had the Scarlet Witch really pursue Strange and Chavez into the star gate, employing images similar to those seen before when the villain was pushing through mirrors.

Along with Wanda pursuing the heroic team, they would have encountered other demons while traversing the Multiverse. There was even a chance they’d run across one of the more sinister Strange Variants, akin to how Earth-616’s good doctor confronted Sinister Strange at the conclusion of the narrative.

As the Scarlet Witch pursued Strange and Chavez, she would release more of her actual power, which she had garnered while delving into the pages of the Darkhold.

In her chase, the villain would have seized Chavez by the wrist, however it’s uncertain whether the action would have progressed as it did in the final edit of Doctor Strange 2.

Marvel Parallels Avoided With Deleted Scene?

New Doctor Strange 2 Art Reveals Deleted Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Fight

With Doctor Strange 2 clocking in at little over two hours, it’s hardly unexpected that so many deleted scenes and concept art have been published now that the film has come and gone. This sequence would have certainly added a couple of minutes to the running length, although it’s unclear whether it would have come with the universe-jumping scene or taken its place entirely.

Furthermore, given Marvel’s vast history, this deleted battle has some resemblance to another sequence seen by fans in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, which starred Thor, Loki, and Hela. This three got into a similar brawl when Loki summoned the Bifrost to transport him and Thor to Asgard, prompting Hela to leap in and fling them over the rainbow bridge into the uncharted realms of space.

In the end, it looks that this confrontation between Doctor Strange and the Scarlet Witch was never even pre-visualized, since this is the first time fans have seen this scene shown in public. While it would have undoubtedly provided another fantastic combat scene to the already packed film, leaving it out maintained some of the emphasis on Strange and America as they began their first journey across the Multiverse.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now available to watch on Disney+.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Is Now Available

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are preparing to send fans back to the MCU’s first real Multiversal event, “The More Fun Stuff Version,” when Tom Holland’s third and largest solo Spidey trip takes a second run on the big screen.

The extended edit of No Way Home will feature 11 minutes of material that did not make the initial theatrical release in December 2021, according to reports. More material starring Charlie Cox’s “very smart lawyer,” Matt Murdock, as well as other exchanges with Holland and the two other Spider-Men, portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, are possible.

The advertising tour for the new No Way Home extended cut began with a new poster that included all three Spider-Men, as well as all five villains and a scattering of supporting characters. This promotional tour now continues with a new trailer for the film, however it doesn’t exactly include any…new stuff.

New Trailer for No Way Home Extended Cut

Watch: Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Released

Sony Pictures has published a 30-second clip for Spider-Man: No Way Home’s theatrical re-release, which begins on August 31 in Indonesia.

Surprisingly, despite the promise that fresh material would be added in this edit, this teaser has no new footage.

The commercial focuses mostly on Peter’s struggles with the film’s five Multiversal antagonists, including Happy Hogan’s phone conversation in which he asks Peter who they are all. The closing scene of the teaser depicts Peter leaping into fight against the criminals, with the other two Spider-Men cut out, but the Lizard is still hit by the air, exactly as he was in the second trailer.

The whole trailer is available below:

Sony is back with another Spider-Man trailer.

Sony Pictures rocketed to the top of the entertainment business with the original release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, despite a difficult couple of years of releases. The studio had its most successful film ever, shattering box office records and generating over $2 billion in its first run.

Despite the hype for the “More Fun Stuff Version,” Sony made no attempt to tease anything new that would be presented in this new edit of the threequel. The studio didn’t even bother to replace the scene of all three Spider-Men leaping into fight on the Statue of Liberty, instead settling for the error-filled picture in which the Lizard is assaulted by a secret figure.

Regardless of these gaffes, anticipation is growing for what Sony and Marvel have in store with material not included in the initial December 2021 edit. And, if nothing else, the threequel is still one of the most popular superhero films in history, which should be plenty to entice fans to return to the big screen a few more times.

Marvel’s Biggest Multiverse Reveal Is Wasted

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy rig

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.

Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy right now, but Marvel Comics has been using the notion for decades. The finest multiverse tales allow you to ponder the question “What If…?” – to picture universes where heroes were beaten instead of triumphing, planets were broken, or entire new champions created. Sometimes these “What If…?” tales help to establish concepts that will ultimately make their way into the regular comic book narrative, and maybe even into the movies themselves. In the comics, Jane Foster initially appeared as Thor.

Edge of Spider-Verse #2 features “A Single Thread,” a short narrative by Dan Slott and Paco Medina that has just been used to change the history and nature of the entire Marvel world. The universe started untold billions of years ago, long after the ancient Elder Gods were expelled, according to Edge of Spider-Verse #2. Gaea and Oshtur started producing new gods and demigods, and they entrusted the construction of the universe to the early spider-goddess Neith. She fashioned the Web of Life and Destiny, which is centered on Earth-001. Finally, the Spider-hidden Verse’s genesis has been exposed.

Marvel has just rewritten the structure of the whole multiverse.

It’s odd, though, that Marvel practically squandered such a big disclosure. The real nature of the universe is introduced in what seems to be a tangent or side-story to the main event, rather than in a large ” event ” issue with a great amount of hype behind it. This choice is even more astounding considering the importance of multiverses in popular culture, and Marvel Comics’ own multiverse is now serving as inspiration for the MCU’s. Spider-Man: No Way Home, like the comics, has established spider-characters as prominent players in the universe.

Marvel Wastes Its Biggest Multiverse Reveal

To be fair to Marvel, Edge of Spider-Verse #2 does have some backstory. The first Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries debuted with the original Spider-Verse storyline in 2014, and its second issue featured the famous Spider-Gwen. Marvel may have decided to make the second issue of this new Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries seem just as important – but if so, the comic book publisher could have pushed it more aggressively.

It’s enthralling to discover the real genesis and nature of the MCU’s cosmos. The important issue is whether it will survive much longer; this tie-in is tied with the End of the Spider-Verse event, implying that the multiverse’s laws are going to be altered. Marvel’s universe has been defined, but it may not last.
