The Pincers of Power first appeared in Strange Tales #140, in which Dormammu challenged Doctor Strange to combat, the prize being mastery of the earth. Doctor Strange accepted, and as the terms said, he had to battle Dormammu with only the Pincers. The two fought, with Dormammu having the upper hand and throwing Strange to the ground, defeating him, but as revealed in #141, Mordo had struck Doctor Strange before he defeated Dormammu, causing Dormammu to become enraged. Dormammu, having a strong sense of honor, waited for Strange to recover, and once again they did battle, this time Strange winning. The Pincers of Power have since been unused.
