Doctor Strange, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1963, is one of the best-loved superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as the comic world.

Marvel's 'Dr. Strange' follows the tale of the egotistical neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange in his journey of becoming Sorcerer Supreme and defending earth from attacks of magical and mystical beings. Best remembered through the portrayal of Benedict Cumberbatch in the 2016 movie of the same name, Doctor Stephen Strange journeys from being an extremely talented albeit egoistic and vain, world-renowned neurosurgeon to the Sorcerer Supreme of the earth.

Left with a damaged body after meeting with a near-fatal car accident, Strange goes to Kamar Taj in Kathmandu as a last ray of hope to heal his battered body and return to his previous glorious life. He becomes a disciple of the Ancient One, Strange's predecessor as Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, who helps him gain mystical knowledge and overcome his physical limitation to eventually become the primary protector of the earth. Under the Supreme Sorcerer's tutelage, Strange becomes a master of both the mystical as well as the martial arts. He successfully fights against Kaecilius, a student of the Ancient One gone astray, and Dormammu of the Dark Dimension along with Master Mordo and Master Wang. He eventually goes on to acquire the Eye of Agomotto and the Cloak of Levitation and takes up residence in 177A Bleecker Street, Greenwich Village, the New York sanctum.
