Nice job MrSuday! Love this.
DEVLIN712 - 6/16/2014, 4:37 AM
I'm pretty sure we'll see Strange in Age of Ultron, but only as the surgeon. That was the general audience will have an idea of who he is before the solo film.

Doctor Strange is a wiggly character. LAME!

Dr. Strange does magic.

Batz plays Magic the Gathering.

They are the same guy really.

Won't be surprised if Marvel brings out Johnny Depp on stage during SDCC and announces him as Dr. Strange.
KallarkKent - 6/16/2014, 7:46 AM
I have a feeling that Marvel will take a lot of liberties with Dr Strange to make him more appealing which I have no problem with. I really hope Cumberbatch plays Strange :)

LOL Yoss

I cannot wait for this film. My wife is a huge Harry Potter fan, I have become a fan as well, and I have been hyping the Sorcerer Supreme to her since we met. She enjoyed the animated film, which was OK. She enjoyed him in Ultimate Spider-Man.

@batz - hahahahahahahahahha

You missed a great GL bashing on Friday. Gusto ended up commenting from the ER after that thread.

Gusto - 6/16/2014, 7:51 AM

DOCTOR STRANGE BIO:
Stephen entered New York College as a pre-med student straight out of high school, he'd earned his medical degree in record time and entered a five-year residency at New York Hospital, where his rapid success made him into an arrogant and promiscuous young doctor. Strange's steady-hand precision was his ticket to the life of leisure he sought after, becoming a wealthy, aristocratic elite and celebrated neurosurgeon before he turned thirty. Described by his peers as egotistical and greedy, cold and callous, Strange's emotional investment in his patients generally began and ended at receiving the bill. The one exception was Madeleine Revell, an injured United Nations translator whom he saved and fell in love with, but following a whirlwind of romance and proposal, she left him due to his increasingly materialistic and self-centered nature. The experience left him with a sense of personal failure that eroded his medical idealism.

While driving his most prized red Corvette along a rain-soaked cliffside road, Strange careened off a very steep rock face and shattered all the bones in his hands. The nerve damage and subsequent healing effectively spelled an end to his ability to conduct surgery, since his hands now trembled. Too proud to take on a teaching job, Strange desperately begins the search for a cure to restore his hands, consulting various doctors, homeopathic treatments and traveling around the world to remote regions for exotic cures, all to no avail. Having completely exhausted all of his funds and reduced to homelessness, Strange is forced to perform back alley medical procedures for cash.

Still depressed and still searching for a cure, Strange locates a hermit called The Ancient One (who is actually the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme) in a hidden monastery deep within the Himalayas. The Ancient One refuses to help Strange because of his selfishness, but senses his good side which he attempts to bring to the surface, and fails. But when Stephen discovers the Ancient One's disciple, Baron Mordo, attempting to kill the old man, Strange selflessly thwarts what would become his most enduring antagonist from doing so, and in Mordo's place is taught mystic arts within the secret realm of Kamar-Taj.

During his early years as a student of The Ancient One, Strange befriended many sorcerers around the world, including Lord Julian Phyffe and Sir Clive Bentley of Great Britain; Cardinal Alfeo Spinosa and Count Tancredo Carezzi of Italy; Omar Karindu, Rama Kaliph, and Turhan Barim of the Middle East; Wai Chee Yee and Sen-YU of Asia; and Aleister Kane, Kenneth Ward, and Frank Brukner of America. Strange had studied magic under the Ancient One for seven years but upon returning to the US, he became a professional mystic consultant, establishing his Sanctum Sanctorum in New York's Greenwich Village, attended by Wong, who had became his servant and his friend. The mysterious doctor's reputation grew, and Strange even became an occasional consultant to local and federal authorities, as they militantly tried to put a stop to organized occultism.

You forgot to add that like most Marvel characters he is a rip off of a DC property in this case Dr. Fate. You're welcome.
yossarian - 6/16/2014, 8:30 AM

As long as they don't change his personality, like they did Stark, I'll be happy.
Grimfoe - 6/16/2014, 8:38 AM
the animated movie produced by marvel a few years ago was very good. I'd recommend it for an idea about his origin, etc.
