Doctor Stephen Strange, also known as Doctor Strange, is one of the most powerful and enigmatic characters in Marvel Comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, he first appeared in “Strange Tales” #110 in 1963.

In the comics, Stephen Strange starts as a brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon. After a tragic car accident severely damages his hands, preventing him from performing surgery, Strange embarks on a journey to find a cure. This quest leads him to the Ancient One, a powerful sorcerer in the Himalayas, who becomes his mentor in the mystic arts.

Under the tutelage of the Ancient One, Doctor Strange learns the ways of magic, becoming the Sorcerer Supreme, Earth’s primary protector against mystical threats. He gains a wide array of magical abilities, including spellcasting, astral projection, teleportation, and manipulation of time and reality.

Doctor Strange is known for his signature spellcasting technique, which involves intricate and visually stunning hand movements. He often battles powerful and otherworldly entities, protecting the Earth and the entire universe from supernatural dangers.

In the MCU, Doctor Strange is portrayed by actor Benedict Cumberbatch. He made his debut in “Doctor Strange” (2016), an origin story that chronicles his transformation from a skilled surgeon to the Sorcerer Supreme. The film delves into the mystical and psychedelic aspects of the Marvel Universe, showcasing stunning visual effects and mind-bending sequences.

Doctor Strange’s character in the MCU has become a central figure, playing key roles in major crossover events like “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.” His mastery of the mystic arts and his willingness to make difficult sacrifices demonstrate his importance as a hero and leader within the MCU.

Doctor Strange’s character exemplifies themes of redemption, humility, and the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. As a hero who straddles the line between science and magic, Doctor Strange represents a unique and essential aspect of the Marvel Universe, adding depth to the world of superheroes and cosmic forces. His presence in both the comics and the MCU solidifies his status as one of Marvel’s most iconic and powerful characters.
