(Marvel Fanfare I#6/2 (fb) - BTS) - She was born a sorceress and studied at the feet of wizards and seers before she could walk.
(Marvel Fanfare I#6/2) - Elata challenged Ian McNee to a mystic combat to become the Sorceress Supreme. She attacked him as soon as she knew that he was the Sorcerer Supreme, but his shield was too strong for her attacks. She put up a mystical shield when Ian fought back, but it didn't hold and Elata was seemingly destroyed by Ian.

Was she real or not? Only Dr. Strange knows!
Elata's origin stayed a mystery as well as nearly everything else about her. She was still more interesting than Ian McNee.
What was Elata? A few guesses!
