Synopsis for "The Demon's Disciple!"Edit
Dr. Strange is visited by a disciple of a mystic known as the Demon, however the Demon causes the man to disappear. Tracking the Demon to his lair, Dr. Strange is trapped in the Crimson Bands of Cyttorac until he travels out of his body and reads the Demon's spells in order to learn a way to free himself. Battling the Demon, Dr. Strange bests him in mystic combat and then casts a spell that will make the Demon want to renounce the mystic arts for the purposes of evil.
Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch
- Although this story states that Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch are mutants, years later it is revealed that the twins are not actually mutants at all. As revealed in Uncanny Avengers Vol 2 #4 they were actually genetically modified by the High Evolutionary. In order to cover up his work he made it so the pair would register as mutants.
- The pair owe their lives to Magneto, leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, because he once saved Wanda from an angry mob as seen in X-Men #4.
- Johnny recalls both his experiences with members of the X-Men: When they were thralls of the Mad Thinker and the Puppet Master (Fantastic Four #28) and when he and Iceman battle Captain Barracuda (Strange Tales #120).
- Although Pietro and Wanda decide to go back to Magneto after this story it proves to be disastrous as seen in X-Men #11. So much so they eventually return to America and join the Avengers in Avengers #16.
