Characters Doctor Strange

A window crashing high flying globe traveling ghost battling adventure from the earliest days of Doctor Strange’ Season One stuff was supposed to give readers a fresh take on the origins of certain Marvel characters andor teams Sometimes it worked well X Men Season One sometimes it didn t Spider Man Season One This one was ok Strange s origin narcissistic surgeon car accident ruined hands empty bank account no hope helloAncient One was basically told in a couple of pages with no dialogue It s only once he shows up on the mountaintop that this story begins The opening at the temple is almost exactly like the original origin where Mordo starts off by trying to convince Stephen to side with him against the Ancient One Strange saying no and Mordo casting a spell on him so that he can t tell anyone what he saw Mordo doing With no way he believes to help the master he decides to stay and train so that he might be able to protect the old man And just like the original tale the Ancient One then removes the spell tells Stephen that he already knew what Mordo was doing and that Strange has proven he is worthy to learn magic Ok at this point it veers off script and starts telling the story of Wong and Strange s friendship Except they aren t friends In fact they sorta hate each other s guts The back and forth between these two was the highlight for me It had a fun I hate you but someday we ll be best buds vibe that I enjoyed uite a bit I m not sure that anything else about the story was all that great though The idea was that Strange had all the talent Wong had all the heart but neither of them could do shit magic wise Wong thought Strange was evil and Strange thought Wong was a dickBut unless they learn to work together they ll never beat the bad guyPretty cliche but I could live with itThere was some girl and I have no idea if she s old character or someone new that they were trying to help I think maybe she was supposed to be a shared love interest to add tension between them or something Not sure She didn t make or break it for me either wayThis really didn t impress me but if you re looking for Doctor Strange this might be something you would enjoy I d suggest getting it from a library or using a Marvel Unlimited account to read it though Definitely not worth buying unless you re a HUGE Strange fan

Doctor Strange

S training in the mystic arts Part Indiana Jones part Lord of the Rings thrill to this new tale of how a selfish a Doctor Stephen Strange seeks out the Ancient One for the magic to heal his handsAfter speaking to the Ancient One and an encounter with Baron Mordo Stephen decides to stay and train After learning of magical rings Stephen and Wong head out to secure them with the help of a young womanDr Strange Season One seems like a different Dr Strange story Clearly the story is being reinvisioned but I m not familiar enough with his original story to know how much is different or the same The biggest surprise for me is that Wong is not only a student of the ancient one but that he s so antagonistic towards Stephen This story read like an extra magic version of the Lord of the Rings enough that the author jokingly calls their female companion their hobbit on multiple occasionsDr Strange Season One is an OK story but I m not sure it provides the most accurate portrayal of Dr Strange and Wong

Greg Pak ´ 2 Summary

Rrogant surgeon collided with a hot headed martial artist to become the greatest team the mystic arts have ever se The fact that there are so many superhero stories from films television etc it does seem pointless to do origin stories in this current age where we know how Superman Batman and Spider Man came to be However there are plenty of new characters that audiences won t be as familiar with such as Stan Lee and Steve Ditko s Doctor Strange whose cinematic debut is not far away so what better way than to read a comic that shows how Stephen Strange became Master of Mystic ArtsIf you don t know who Stephen Strange is he s a selfish arrogant surgeon who following a car accident that destroys his hands and hinders his ability to perform surgery searches the globe for a way to repair them and encounters the Ancient One After months of mystic training Strange embarks on a worldwide journey with another apprentice of the Ancient One Wong and Sofia di Cosimo who searches for three rings of tremendous power before the evil Baron Mordo doesVery similar to DC s Earth One line up Season One is a series of graphic novels that re tell the origin stories of classic Marvel characters in a contemporary fashion Much like how the book is promoted this story is part Indiana Jones part Lord of the Rings something that would grab new readers However despite those references and at least try to contemporising aspects of the Doctor Strange mythos such as the relationship between Strange and Wong from originally master and servant to now two antagonistic apprentices who are butting heads Greg Pak s writing is witless and somewhat lazy in how it rarely delves into the magical world or indeed the journey of the rings which just felt generic with Baron Mordo occasionally popping up looking sinisterWhatever redeeming feature this book has is Emma Rios art which continues to shine if sometimes too abstract for a superhero comic In collaboration with colourist Jordie Bellaire there are stunningly grand panels displaying the magic spells that are cast upon even if you can t understand what s going on With her manga esue character illustrations everyone looks sexy not least from the long haired Wong who in any incarnation has never looked sexier That said despite the front cover we don t really see Strange donning the Cloak of Levitation and Eye of Agamotto which is a bit disappointing considering Rios would be ideal to draw his traditional costumeDespite Emma Rios stunningly fantasy imagery Greg Pak presents a generic buddy story with stock characters and doesn t provide a great insight into Stephen Strange and his worldview If you want an introduction to the mystic arts there s Brian K Vaughan s The Oath or Jason Aaron s current run

    Since Stan Lee wrote Steve Ditko illustrated Doctor Strange in 1963 to creat a new dimension to the Marvel comics worldThe World of MagicAnd like 53 years later the Marvel studios add the character to enrich its Cinematic UniverseAmazingly by Benedict Cumberbatch portraying this rich character change from selfishness and arrogance

    This one is of a 35 but I'm nothing if not generousI enjoyed the art and having never read any of the Strange comics before was fascinated by the origin and wondering how it'd play out in an upcoming movie we're all interested inSo one part selfish two parts willing and another part destiny Does that make the character fairly convincing Possibly I'm probably going to need to read a lot probably version 3 before I can make a convincing ju
