History:
(Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon - "Doctor Strange" (fb) ) - Stephen Strange, a prominent New York City surgeon was badly injured in a car accident, severely injuring his hands. Losing the use of his hands, Strange's career was ended, leaving him a bitter and broken man.

(Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon - "Doctor Strange" (fb) ) - Feeling desperate, Strange tracked the far corners of Asia, seeking a man only known as the Ancient One, hoping he could restore his hands. Having gained an audience with the Ancient One, Strange was asked to study with him and learn his mystic ways to find a cure within himself. Wanting to be cured instantly, Strange refused the Ancient One's tutelage and was about to leave when he noticed another student, Mordo who'd just summoned a powerful spell to destroy the Ancient One and take his place. Determined to warn the Ancient One, Strange hurried back but was stopped by Mordo. Unable to act, Strange was helpless to act and witnessed the Ancient One easily disperse of Mordo's magical attack. Once Mordo left Kamar-Taj, Strange became the Ancient One's pupil, determined to stop Mordo.

(Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon - "Doctor Strange" - BTS) - Having become the master of the mystic arts he returned to New York City, living in the Sanctum Sanctorum. Now going by Doctor Strange, Strange also employed manservant Wong.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "The Phoenix Saga - Part IV: The Starjammers") - Doctor Strange and other powerful beings like Captain Britain and the White Queen sensed the Phoenix leaving Earth to rescue the galaxy from Shi'ar emperor D'Ken.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "The Dark Phoenix Saga - Part III: The Dark Phoenix") - From his Sanctum Sanctorum in Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange amongst others like Thor and Uatu the Watcher sensed the ascension of the Dark Phoenix as she traveled into outer space where she destroyed the D'Bari star system.

(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon - "Nightcrawler") - Doctor Strange and Clea enjoyed a holiday in the Bavarian Alps unaware several X-Men were staying in the same hotel. The duo was seen when Rogue and Gambit bickered over the choice of holiday location.

(Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon - "Doctor Strange") - Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum was invaded by a group of Dormammu's followers during the night. The men and women, dressed like ninjas were in fact cultists of the Center of Reunification and hypnotized by Baron Mordo to steal Strange's Wand of Watoomb to bring Dormammu into their dimension. Spider-Man recognized one of them as his missing girlfriend Mary Jane Watson, Spider-Man followed the cultists into Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum where he and Wong fought them. Just as the cultists appeared to grab the Wand of Watoomb, Strange himself appeared and used a spell to get the wand back after which he attacked them. Realizing Strange was too strong for them, the cultists fled with Spider-Man in hot pursuit.

   Doctor Strange followed Spider-Man to the Center of Reunification where he learned the building was protected from outsiders by the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak after which he urged Spider-Man to leave. When asked, Strange introduced himself as the master of the mystic arts after which he disappeared.

   Back in the Sanctum Sanctorum, Strange returned the wand to it's rightful place after which he told Wong he knew Mordo was behind the attack and revealed his prior encounter with the sorcerer in Kamar-Taj.

(Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon - "Doctor Strange" - BTS) - In an attempt to save his girlfriend, Peter Parker applied to the Center of Reunification but quickly learned she fully believed in Mordo's teaching as he allowed her to see her missing father, unbeknownst to Watson it was only an illusion. Not long after, however, Parker was hypnotized himself by Mordo and forced to join the cultist on another trip to Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum.

(Spider-Man: The Animated Series cartoon - "Doctor Strange") - Doctor Strange and Wong tried their best to fend of the cultists but were taken by surprise by Spider-Man, who appeared to be part of them. Spider-Man took Strange by surprise, allowing the cultists to successfully claim the Wand of Watoomb. Spider-Man webbed Strange's hands tight and was about to throw him out of the window when Strange used the All-Seeing Eye of Agamotto to learn Spider-Man was under Mordo's control. Using an incantation of the Vishanti, Strange removed Mordo's influence from Spider-Man who then regained his senses. Doctor Strange revealed to Spider-Man, Mordo would use the Wand of Watoomb to release the dread Dormammu into their dimension to drain the life force out of their reality. Determined to stop Mordo and Dormammu, Spider-Man vowed to help Doctor Strange. Together with Wong and Spider-Man, Doctor Strange returned to the Center of Reunification where he he used an incantation of Hoggoth to breach the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak which shielded the building, allowing the heroes to enter. Inside the heroes were immediately attacked by the cultists, although Strange quickly reached and attacked Mordo. Strange easily defeated Mordo who was then imbued with Dormammu's powers, allowing him to gain the upper hand calling upon the Rain of Raggadorr to attack Strange with. While Strange covered himself, Spider-Man took the wand and entered Dormammu's dimension after which Strange summoned the Rings of Raggadorr. Forcing Mordo to flee, Strange entered Dormammu's dimension as well to save Spider-Man, after tangling with the dread Dormammu they successfully fled his dimension. Returned, but with Dormammu's threat still lingering, Strange used his abilities to show Mary Jane Watson memories of her real father, forcing her to accept and abandon her bitter memories. Mary Jane was then able to stand up to Dormammu allowing Strange to permanently close the dimensional portal. Once the heroes said their goodbyes and Spider-Man and Mary Jane took off, Strange sensed they were being observed, unaware Madame Web (Cassandra Webb) was observing Spider-Man's adventures.
