Powers/Abilities/Functions: The Lost Bones of Eh-Yuh allowed their possessor to travel back to a specific moment in time and space but only allowed the user to do so in astral form. Each time the Lost Bones were used, however, they lost more and more of their power.

History: (Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#1) - When Dr. Strange defeated the extradimensional Qu'vin the Malevolent with the help of Camelot sorcerer Merlin, Strange cut into Qu'vin with his axe and found the Lost Bones of Eh-Yuh. Retrieving them as Qu'vin disappeared in a field of mystic fire, Dr. Strange remarked that the Lost Bones should never have belonged to Qu'vin.

(Doctor Strange & the Sorcerers Supreme I#6) - Still retaining the Lost Bones after being exiled interdimensionally by a mystic trap set by Sir Isaac Newton, Dr. Strange sought to save his fellow Sorcerers Supreme by projecting his astral form in conjunction with the Lost Bones into the other dimensions trapping the other Sorcerers. After successfully rescuing Yao, Dr. Strange located Nina the Conjuror but Yao was quickly pulled into another dimension, where both Nina and Yao were killed by goblin-like creatures, forcing Strange to use the Lost Bones to travel back in time, diverging those events into reality-17546.

Trying once more, Strange again rescued Yao and the two located the adult Wiccan but Yao was again pulled into another dimension, where the goblin-like creatures killed Yao and Wiccan, forcing Strange to again use the Lost Bones to start over in his rescue attempts, diverging these deaths into reality-41919. This time rescuing Kushala and Wiccan first, Strange found that Wiccan was pulled into another dimension, where green and black-striped beings killed both Wiccan and Kushala, again forcing Strange to use the Lost Bones to start over, diverging Wiccan and Kushala's deaths into reality-11481.

Strange's fourth attempt involved rescuing Kushala first then saving Nina the Conjuror but they were all pulled into a dimension where a being resembling a cat/fish/spider hybrid killed Nina and Kushala, and impaled Dr. Strange's astral form with one of its legs. Before his own death, Dr. Strange yet again utilized the Lost Bones of Eh-Yuh to reverse time, this time diverging the battle into reality-31458. In another attempt, Dr. Strange successfully rescued Yao and Kushala before the trio located Nina but they were all devoured by jaws that seemed to spring from the ground and, from inside the mouth, Strange was able to use the Lost Bones to start over yet again, diverging these deaths into reality-24115. Strange's next rescue attempt was mostly successful until the Sorcerers located Yao, who was soon killed by goblin-like creatures again, forcing Strange to again use the Lost Bones to reverse events, diverging Yao's death into reality-10181.

Finally realizing that he would meet with failure in almost attempt to rescue his comrades and noticing that the Lost Bones of Eh-Yuh's power had almost completely been used up, Dr. Strange decided to rescue himself first this time around and succeeded in subsequently rescuing the entire group of Sorcerers Supreme, soon arriving back at the Forgotten's prison where they had originally been banished from.
