Quote1 How truly pleased Mordo will be with the triumph of his loyal deputy! But, if I can fathom the secret of Dr. Strange's amulet, I shall not need Mordo's good will! My power would then be far greater than his! Quote2

Synopsis for "Those Who Would Destroy Me!"Edit

Returning home to his Sanctum Sanctorum in New York, Dr. Strange detects the bomb placed in his home by the minions of Baron Mordo. Rushing outside, Strange is able to get the explosive out before it can explode. However, he is attacked by Mordo's minions who bind him in mystic trappings (hand covers and mask which prevent casting spells), taking his cloak and Eye of Agamotto and immobilize him. They then set up shop in Strange's Sanctum. Although bound, Strange tries to contact the Ancient One, however he happens to do so just as the Ancient One's astral form travels into the mystical realms to search for Clea.

Hoping to probe Strange's mind, Demonicus instead gives Strange an opening to escape, immobilizing Demonicus and freeing himself at least of the incapacitation that kept his physical and astral forms from moving. However, he is unable to learn the reverse spell for his physical bindings from the Demon because the Witch detects Strange's freedom and blocks Demonicus' mind, and sends Mordo's other followers after him. Using his astral form to "see" and get the drop on his opponents, Dr. Strange manages to escape from his Sanctum to begin planning how to get out of his current predicament.
