Real Name: Stephen Strange (presumably)
Identity/Class: Extradimensional (Earth-8377) human, possible magic user
Occupation: General Practitioner
Group Membership: None
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Unrevealed
First Appearance: The Mighty World of Marvel featuring the Daredevils#10 (March, 1984)
Powers/Abilities: A skilled medical practioner, Dr. Strange might also have some knowledge of the mystic arts. Or maybe not.
History: Dr. Strange had a bizarre and monstrous appearance that shocked his patients, though he seemed unaware of this detail. Like all doctors, he seemed to enjoy playing golf, as he kept a club behind his office desk.
Comments: Created by Lew Stringer. A one-panel What If?-type joke, there's very little known about this version of Dr. Strange; he's presumably a counterpart to the Earth-616 Dr. Strange. As for his appearance, there's no clue, just guesses: simply born that way, his car crash exposed him to chemicals that mutated his appearance rather than simply damaging his hands, magical accident or victim of a magical curse (Mordo cast a spell that turned Strange into a loony monster rather than a creating a mystic gag preventing him from warning the Ancient One to Mordo's treachery)?
For the sake of simplicity, we're assuming that all Lew Stringer's one-shot What If?s share a single reality, Earth-8337 (the Stringerverse or Marvel Lewniverse, if you will), excepting any cases where he might reuse a character and depict them in a fashion contradictory to their prior usage.
