Synopsis for "The Sandman Strikes!"Edit

Summoned by Reed Richards to the Baxter Building, the Human Torch is informed that his next mission is to stop the Sandman who has just escaped from prison. Finding the crook, the Torch is told that Sandman will only face Spider-Man, as Spider-Man is the hero who had put him behind bars. The Torch then disguises himself as Spider-Man issues a challenge to the villain to fight him one on one, however, the Sandman gets the drop on "Spider-Man" and attacks him from behind. The Torch flames on, burning his imitation Spider-Man suit in the process, and tries to fight Sandman again, and even when doused in water and unable to use his flame powers, the Torch manages to gain the upper hand and defeat Sandman, turning him over to the authorities. The real Spider-Man, who had been making his way towards the scene of the battle does not arrive until the fight is over. Spider-Man expresses relief that the Torch is okay, but he is also worried that the Torch may be a more successful teenage superhero than he is.

Synopsis for "The Origin of Dr. Strange"Edit

Doctor Stephen Strange is a famous surgeon who works only for money, not caring for his patients nor interested in medical research. An auto accident damages the nerves in his hands severely and he can never perform an operation again. The proud Strange refuses to work for others and ends up on the street. He learns about the healing powers of the Ancient One and travels to his sanctuary in India. The Ancient One refuses to heal Strange because of his selfish motives, however, sudden snow forces Strange to remain in the sanctuary until the snow thaws. Here he witnesses the Ancient One's pupil, Baron Mordo, launch magical attacks upon his master. Mordo casts a spell upon Strange to stop him from warning the Ancient One of the attacks' origins. Strange, therefore, resolves to learn the secrets of black magics to defeat Mordo himself. The Ancient One accepts Strange as his disciple and dispels Mordo's spell which he had known about all along.

Continuity Notes

The Sandman Strikes

The Origin of Doctor Strange

  • Strange's destiny to become the new Sorcerer Supreme were already pre-ordained by the Ancient One as explained in Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #84-85, which also revealed that Mordo had been terrorizing youth, Stephen Strange since he was a child.
  • Doctor Strange: The Oath #1 states that Stephen's car accident took place in the year 1963. Unlike most characters in the Marvel Universe, Strange's lifetime is not entirely subject to the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616. As a mystic, he has slowed his aging process.
  • The other doctors in Strange's origin are unnamed in this comic. They are given names in the 1979 prose novel Nightmare! by William Rotsler. However, details provided in novelizations of Marvel comics are not necessarily considered canonical.
  • In his attacks on the Ancient One Baron Mordo calls upon the Vapors of Valtorr and beseeches the aid of Dormammu. This is the first appearance of any of Dr. Strange's classic spells. Dormammu would not appear in person until Strange Tales #126.
