The Worst Ignorance

November 18, 2022
The worst ignorance
Doctor Strange:
The worst ignorance is always the ignorance you haven’t been aware of. My Cloak of Levitation has served me well more times than I care to think. But now, when it becomes time to repair its torn fabric after my disastrous battle with Khat—although I am Dr. Strange, whom no living being can contest in sorcerous power, lore, or skill, I find myself realizing that I know so very, very little.

A Thousand Arrows In Its Defense

October 5, 2022
the True Light has a thousand arrows in its defense!
Doctor Strange:
[Rintrah’s] astral form’s gone—to help fight my battles. I’ve let rage consume me—and rage’s left hand, despair, grabbed me and hurled me down! But not anymore!
Although the Darkness may come from all sides, the Light can have many facets, too! And through the spell of the Crystal of Vyhagh Ar, we shall see that the True Light has a thousand arrows in its defense!

That word has no meaning here.
Hannibal King:
[Where are we?]
Doctor Strange:
Another dimension, Mr. King…another reality. In this realm, there will be no innocents to be harmed by our battle! Plus, here our foes are out of their element…disoriented.
Hannibal King:
Yeah, well they’re not the only ones. Which way is up?
Doctor Strange:
That word has no meaning here.

The Montessi Formula

October 5, 2022

Fragments of this incantation were discovered years ago by an aged monk named Montessi. Uttered within close proximity of a vampire, even by one unschooled in the mystic arts, it would cause the unliving creature’s total oblivion….

The Plunder Of The Ages

And the plunder of the ages is in my grasp! 1 of 2
And the plunder of the ages is in my grasp! 2 of 2
Urthona:
As yet [Doctor Strange] is too far away to strike at—but I need wait only a short while! I have wrung every drop of magic from his sanctum sanctorum and taken it for my own! His slaves and familiars are now my hostages, and the plunder of the ages is in my grasp!
The Books of the Vishanti and of Eibon; the Orb of Agamotto, himself; the Two Gems That Are One; the Veil of the Purple Dimensions; the Scrolls of Hoary Watoomb; down to the fabled Darkhold, itself! Talismans whispered across a hundred dimensions! All in all, a fitting treasury for the Sorcerer Supreme of this plane: a sorcerer named Urthona!
Let him come!

Limitations Become Irrelevant

July 2, 2022
The Ancient One:
Matter is energy which is all around us. Sorcery is simply the art of wielding that energy….
Control the forces around your hands, and limitations become irrelevant.

— “Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme” (2007)

Not eliminated. Just irrelevant.
