Doctor Strange, the Marvel Universe's future Sorcerer Supreme, matches wits and wizardry with the nefarious Baron Mordo for the first time in this week's First Strike!
Although Mordo would later be outclassed in terms of raw power by the likes of Dormammu and Shuma-Gorath, he would remain Doctor Strange's most personal foe. Lacking Dormammu's supposed sense of honor, Mordo would often resort to all sorts of underhanded tactics in his many battles with Doctor Strange, often targeting friends and allies just to screw with him. In the 1990s, Mordo passed away from cancer, but not before the two old enemies made peace with each other. (Mordo's daughter Astrid, however, was set up to carry on their feud.) However, nobody really stays dead in comics for long, and Mordo was no exception. The reconciliation, unfortunately, was apparently off when Mordo returned, and he's been gunning for Strange once again, more intensely and ruthlessly than ever.
