History: (Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Sir Isaac Newton created the Cudgel of Yaziya and buried it underground for later use. At some point in the modern era, Dr. Strange acquired the Cudgel and placed it within a metal foot locker inside his Sanctum Sanctorum.

(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#7) - Upon learning that Sir Isaac Newton sought something underground, Dr. Strange deduced that Newton sought the Cudgel of Yaziya, which he still had in his Sanctum Sanctorum. Teleporting to his Sanctum Sanctorum with the help of his ally, Demon Rider, Dr. Strange searched his Sanctum and soon found the glowing Cudgel of Yaziya in the metal foot locker he had earlier placed it in. Returning to the battlefield with the Cudgel, Strange found Newton rummaging through an underground tunnel and surprised Newton, asking if he was looking for the Cudgel before hitting Newton with the mystic weapon. Hitting Newton a second time while he was down, Strange admitted that he had often wondered who had created the Cudgel of Yaziya and buried it, noticing that the Cudgel seemed to be waiting for its master, and remarked that he now knew Newton had created it and that the Cudgel could harm its master. Before Strange could hit Newton a third time, he was given pause when the walls of the tunnel began cracking and Strange soon realized that the Author of the Word of God tome had been awakened. Setting the Cudgel down, Strange asked Newton to hand over the Word of God he had stolen and revealed to Newton that the Author had arrived.

(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#8) - As the Author stormed through New York demanding that its Word of God tome be returned, he grabbed the Cudgel of Yaziya from Dr. Strange and snapped it in half.
