Synopsis for "Duel With The Dread Dormammu!"Edit
While waiting for his duel against Dormammu to begin, Dr. Strange is shown around the Dark Dimension and shown the part of the realm which is sealed with a mystic barrier to contain the Mindless Ones by Clea. As his duel starts against the Dread Dormammu, Dormammu imprisons Clea, and the two duel on. However, the mystical power used by Dormammu weakens the power of the spell keeping the Mindless ones at bay causing them to escape. Dr. Strange then helps seal them back in their place, and as gratitude, Dormammu is bound to a promise not to invade the Earth's dimension. Returning to the Earth dimension, Dr. Strange is rewarded by the Ancient One with two new items: A cloak of levitation, and the Eye of Agamotto.
