DOCTOR STRANGE, the fourth instalment in the successful Marvel Animated Features Series, is a truly mystical and magical tale, full of sorcery and intrigue, plus incredible battle sequences between superheroes and supernatural villains!
A supernatural war is raging and darkness appears to be winning the battle...yet there is a glimmer of hope in the form of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange.
Doctor Stephen Strange was one of the most gifted surgeons in medicine before his hands were left shattered and useless as a result of a car crash. Seeking healing at the feet of the mysterious Ancient One, he embarks on a wondrous journey to the heights of a Tibetan mountain. But before his wounds can heal, Strange must first let go of his painful past and awaken a gift granted to very few, the gift of magic. Empowered as the new Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange now tests his limits, rising up against monsters that push at the gates, facing the most terrifying entity humankind has ever known.

Doctor Strange is one of the most powerful sorcerers in existence. Like most sorcerers, he draws his power from three primary sources: the invocation of powerful mystic entities or objects, the manipulation of the universe's ambient magical energy, and his own psychic resources. Strange's magical repertoire includes energy projection and manipulation, matter transformation, animation of inanimate objects, teleportation, illusion-casting, mesmerism, thought projection, astral projection, dimensional travel, time travel and mental possession, to name a few. The full range of his abilities is unknown. Doctor Strange's powers are sometimes less effective against strictly science-based opponents, although he can overcome this limitation with effort.
Doctor Strange is a skilled athlete and martial artist with substantial medical and magical knowledge. Though an expert surgeon, Strange's nerve-damaged hands prevent him from performing surgery except when supplemented by magic.
Doctor Strange wears the Eye of Agamotto, an amulet which can radiate light, pierce illusions, probe minds, open extradimensional portals, and perform other feats. He has a Cloak of Levitation which enables him to fly without expending personal magical energy. He possesses several other mystic artifacts, including the Orb of Agamotto, which he can use to observe events virtually anywhere in the multiverse. He has a library of mystic tomes, some of which, such as the Book of the Vishanti and the Darkhold, can serve as power sources or weapons in their own right.
