The latest trailer of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness makes fans really confused about the main villain in this movie. With the multiverse, everything is possible and it is difficult to predict in advance what each villain will take advantage of the chaos of reality to serve.
There is a theory that Nightmare, one of Strange’s biggest opponents in the original, is playing a trick behind what happens in the Multiverse of Madness. There are also fans who think that Scarlet Witch will betray her teammates to take advantage of the multiverse and save her twin children. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that Doctor Strange himself will be the main villain in this movie, like many previous Marvel comics have portrayed.
Doctor Carlo Strange
Many Marvel comics fans know that Doctor Strange first appeared in Strange Tales #110 in 1963. However, before that, Marvel actually had another Doctor Strange, a villain and a villain. much more ruthless – Carlo Strange. This character appears in Tales of Suspense #41 and is not related to Stephen Strange.
Carlo Strange is a mad scientist and rival of Iron Man. Instead of relying on magic, he uses a variety of technologies, devices and inventions to achieve his own goals, including a machine that controls the minds of others.
The Planet Hulk series is one of the best examples of just how cold and callous Doctor Strange can be. As a member of the Illuminati, besides names like Professor X, Iron Man, Reed Richards, Black Bolt, Namor, Doctor Strange plotted to expel Hulk from Earth, after a disaster in Las Vegas.
It is true that they need to stop the Hulk in order to protect humanity, but getting rid of the Green Giant from the planet and not caring about the physical and mental condition of this character, nor taking into account the consequences of his actions. possible consequences, somewhat revealing the ruthless side of Strange’s personality. And the price Strange had to pay was too high, when Hulk found a way to return to Earth and take revenge on the Avengers and the world in a cruel way.
Become an ally of Dormammu
Dormammu is one of Doctor Strange’s greatest enemies, and one of the main villains in the character’s first solo movie. But in the What If…? #18, one of the strongest variations of Strange ignored all right and wrong, right and wrong and decided to cooperate with Dormammu to the surprise of readers.
This version of Strange murdered Baron Mordo after Mordo taught him how to use dark magic. Similar to the variation in the animated series What If…?, he showed no remorse or regret about using these forbidden spells for his personal purposes.
In the Marvel Zombie universe, which was adapted into an animated episode in the What If…? series, Doctor Strange is one of the last surviving superheroes to fight the zombie pandemic. However, because of the overwhelming number, the ultimate wizard finally succumbed, thereby transforming into the undead and becoming a zombie master of all kinds of dark magic.
Later, Strange participated in Doctor Doom’s plan to raid the castle, then teamed up with the zombie Kingpin and used his own magic to help the crime boss take over other universes.
Strange’s Dark Replica
When Spider-Man: No Way Home had not been released, some fans suspected that Doctor Strange in this blockbuster was actually a “fake”, transformed by someone else. In Doctor Strange #6, released in 2018, it is true that another copy of Strange appeared and calmly lived in the Temple, when the “original” was busy traveling in space.
Of course, like many other works of science fiction, the copies have never had good intentions or intentions. The same goes for the Strange clone, mainly due to the effects of Baron Mordo’s dark magic. As it turns out, this character’s real name is Casey Kinmont, one of Stephen’s former disciples.
Earth-10011’s Doctor Strange is one of the most sinister versions of the character in the original comics. After his reality was taken over by the Many Angled Ones from the Cancerverse, instead of fighting and taking revenge, he immediately joined his enemies and helped them conquer other realities, including Earth-616.
This Doctor Strange is also a member of another version of the Defenders, who confronted the Guardians of the Galaxy during their invasion. In the end, he and the Defenders were destroyed by Thanos.
Disciple of Dormammu
Once again, Strange accepted to kneel before Dormammu, although this time somewhat reluctantly. When Dormammu defeated Eternity – one of Marvel’s most powerful cosmic entities, he immediately manipulated reality, forcing Strange to become his henchman.
As the Ultimate Wizard, Doctor Strange has faced all kinds of demons or mysterious creatures in the Marvel universe. However, he himself once became such a monster just because he wanted to save the life of the person he loved. In Marvel Team-Up #80, Strange asked the magician Marie Laveau to save Clea, and in return, he accepted to turn into a werewolf.
At this point, Strange almost lost all human awareness and consciousness. He attacked Clea and Spider-Man – the teammate who had helped him before. Only after Satana died did Strange return to his normal state.
Doctor Strange is a powerful mage in the Marvel universe, but his strength is no match for God Emperor Doom. In the 2015 version of Secret Wars, Doctor Doom manipulates and destroys reality to turn his nemesis, Strange, into the series’ most trusted partner and biggest villain.
Once there, Doctor Strange became Sheriff Strange, Doom’s chief lieutenant in Battleworld, who willingly obeyed his master’s evil orders without hesitation. After reforming, Strange decided to help the surviving superheroes overthrow Doom and restore reality to its original state.
One of the most evil versions of Strange in the comics, and also the version that may appear in the upcoming blockbuster of the MCU, is the Necromancer. This version has appeared in series such as Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #46 as a completely evil variant who killed Baron Mordo and devoted himself to black magic.
Similar to Evil Strange in the What If…? series, the Necromancer is imprisoned in a miniature reality within the entity Eternity. However, he later escaped and began attacking Earth-616. It cannot be ruled out that the variant that we all think is Evil Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer is actually a Necromancer that has just been released from the seal.
