Sorcerous phrases

Stephen Strange (Earth-616) from New Avengers Vol 3 7 001

Co-creator and longtime original scripter Stan Lee wrote many alliterative exclamations and incantations that Dr. Strange would utter. Lee and later writers often created characters and storylines based on these casually created phrases.

The Emancipation Incantation:[16] “Satannish, Watoomb and Raggadorr
Ikonn, the Seraphim and Cyttorak
Agamotto, Oshtur and Muniporr
Hoggoth, the Faltine, Valtorr and Denak!
Those whom I named plus other I've omitted
whose who threatened my cherished liberty
hark to this irrevocable decree:
such enslavement will not be permitted
your claims on my person I now reject
all demands of servitude I must deny
for your wisdom and might I've the utmost respect
but the price for its use is far too high
better the path I walk be mine alone
hear now these words: let my fate be my own!”’’

The Threefold Path of Agamotto

  • It's not always easy to differentiate a spell name versus entreating an entity to add their power to it, or if some are distinct spells or just variations. Many of the classic names are alliterative.
