History: (Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#3 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, the mystic gestalt Forgotten obtained or absorbed the Light of Darkness artifact.

(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#3) - Tracking the magic of time-displaced Sorcerers Supreme within Merlin's castle, the Forgotten erupted from an underground area of the castle and used the Light of Darkness artifact to fire destructive beams that destroyed several turned spirits that the Sorcerers were fighting. The sorceress Demon Rider soon allowed her Spirit of Vengeance to take over and blast the Forgotten in the face, causing it to fire beams from the Light of Darkness blindly. As it fired, Earth-13729's Wiccan used a mirror to deflect the beams back into the Forgotten, causing its collective personalities to manifest as separate heads.

(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#4) - After appearing and revealing its origins to the Sorcerers Supreme, the Forgotten used artifacts it had acquired or absorbed, including the Light of Darkness, the Shield of Endless Misery and the Word of God book, to cast a spell intended to free its prison from its place outside time. The Sorcerers attacked, however, disrupting the spell and forcing the Forgotten to cast aside the Light of Darkness and the other artifacts to focus on the fight.
