(Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme#10) - A very heavy wrecking ball was going to hit some workers. Doctor Strange conjured the Wings of Watoomb on the ball. The ball chain broke under the spell's carriage strength. The ball flew for a while, in a direction chosen by Strange, then, when Doctor Strange dispelled the enchantment, the wings disappeared and the weight safely fell down.
