Doctor Strange has a history of being one of Marvel's... strangest superheroes.
His adventures have often inevitably been surreal, involving mind-altering journeys across psychedelic dimensions. The very nature of his character means his is a magical world where literally anything can happen.
Of course, just because something can happen doesn't mean it should.
Doctor Strange has been subject to a whole host of stories that have been beyond embarrassing for the Sorceror Supreme. He has some pretty big metaphorical skeletons in his closest, including some embarrassing defeats, some pretty questionable behaviour towards his so-called friends and the usual helping of completely abandoned plot points.
And that's not to mention that other, less-talked-about film adaptation. Oh yes, Benedict Cumberbatch wasn't the first man to bring a live-action Doctor Strange to our screens.
Just because they're embarrassing though, doesn't mean we're just going to let them go unnoticed. Instead, we're going to make like real wizards and pull Doctor Strange's dirty laundry out of a hat for all the world to see.
I was just a mild-mannered NCTJ accredited journalist until one day I found out the truth... that I could share my nerdy ramblings with people on the internet! It's just like mumbling to myself on the train, but without all the strange looks.
