Officially created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Stephen Vincent Strange, Doctor Strange first appeared in Strange Tales #110, July 1963.
Initially introduced as a “master of dark magic,” Strange assumed ten years later, upon the death of his master, the title of Sorcerer Supreme. Since then, he has been known as the most powerful character in Marvel Comics’ magical and mystical universe.
Like many of the publisher’s characters created in the Silver Age of comics, Stephen Strange has his life defined by his mistakes.
An American born in 1930, a brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon, the Doctor suffers a car accident that damages the nerves in his hands.
After spending his entire fortune searching for alternative ways to heal himself, Strange despairs.
When he learns of a certain Ancient One, he then sets off to Tibet, where he finds not a cure but an order of mystical arts that teaches him to channel and manipulate every kind of energy with martial arts and magic.
Some of the best-known characters from the Doctor Strange stories already appeared in the following issues of Strange Tales, such as Dormammu – the hero’s archenemy, who uses the Dark Dimension as the base of his attacks; the sorceress Clea – Dormammu’s niece and Strange’s love interest; and Wong, guardian of Doctor Strange’s residence.
Also appearing in the early comics are the objects that Doctor Strange uses to increase his powers, such as the Cloak of Levitation – which gives the wearer the ability to fly; the Book of Vishanti – with a list of spells; and especially the Eye of Agamotto, which serves as protection, reveals illusions, dispenses spells, and generates bursts of energy.
If Stephen Strange already has much in common with Tony Stark – from his goatee (in some interpretations) to his arrogance – the Eye of Agamotto, which the Doctor carries like an amulet near his chest, is aesthetically similar to Iron Man’s Arc Reactor.
Despite these similarities – Doctor Strange and Iron Man were created within a four-month gap by Lee – the style of the sorcerer comics was quite particular.
It combined surrealistic landscapes, psychedelic effects, and a story full of cosmologies and mysticisms.
In 1968, the Strange Tales series ended, and, without resetting its numbering, it was renamed Doctor Strange.
