To give you an overview about the character, let’s immerse ourselves in the Marvel universe. Dr. Strange or Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange (as mortals know him) is a neurosurgeon by profession. Much like Tony Stark, Strange amassed wealth even before he turned thirty because of his superior skills and talent. But like they say, with great power comes great ego, pompousness and greed, Dr. Strange is no different. Touted as the best neurosurgeon in the world, his relationship with his patients began and ended with the bill. Does that ring any bell? *cough* Dr. House *cough*. So how does this celebrated, self proclaimed megalomaniac walk the path of righteousness and is hailed as super-hero?

That’s because of a life-changing event that hit him hard. He was in a car accident in which his car slid off a cliff while he was on his way to a stockbroker, who he believed could make him richer. Falling from what felt like eternity, he finally understood the anguish and pain for the first time. Awakening in the hospital before suffering from a feat of delirium, the doctors told him his career as a neurosurgeon was over due to nerve damage in his hands. Refusing to come to terms, he spend a fortune trying to repair the damage but in vain before he overheard a guy talking about an ancient healer. Pawning the last of his possessions, Strange booked a one-way ticket to the Himalayas to meet the healer. Searching tirelessly, he ultimately found the hidden temple and this is where the ‘Supreme Sorcerer’ was born.
