Marvel-Comics - Doctor Strange #4! : espionage. magic. wong. discover Wong’s new role in the Marvel universe

By Mulder, 17 march 2023

A student of the occult, Wong trained with the Masters of the Mystic Arts, a league of sorcerers committed to protecting the Earthly dimensions from mystical threats. They operate under the Sorcerer Supreme, also known as The Ancient One. The Masters of the Mystic Arts use magic, drawing power from alternate dimensions with respect to natural laws, to face threats from dark entities who enter their universe with malicious intent.

When once-renowned surgeon Doctor Stephen Strange arrives at Kamar-Taj seeking a cure for his mangled, unsteady hands, The Ancient One tasks Wong with introducing Strange to the world of magic and mystic arts and aiding his studies. With the threat of zealot Kaecilius and ruler of the Dark Dimension Dormammu resolved, Wong joins Doctor Strange as a Master of the New York Sanctum.

Wong is one of the most knowledgeable masters in Kamar-Taj possessing a powerful mastery of sorcery. As like all Masters of the Mystic Arts, he is able to shape and manipulate Eldritch Magic, invoking weapons and other objects via spells, cast illusions, and astral projection. With mystical artifacts, Wong is able to harness magic such as the Wand of Watoomb or the Sling Ring, which allows him to travel across multiple dimensions of the Multiverse. In addition to his mastery of knowledge and magic, Wong is a master martial artist, able to protect the Sanctums and other dimensions from the likes of the Zealots and Thanos’ followers. Wong is one of the few with knowledge of each Infinity Stone, and what it means to all life and existence in the universe if all six Infinity Stones are reunited.

Like all Masters of the Mystic Arts, Wong safeguards Earth and its dimensions from dark forces who threaten its existence in its pursuits of evil. Wong’s greatest threat is another sorcerer, and a former member of the Masters of the Mystic Arts, Kaecilius, who formed the Zealots with other former students. Kaecilius and the Zealots worship Dormammu, the Destroyer of Worlds, who want to bring the Dark Dimension to Earth. When Kaecilius and his followers kill the Kamar-Taj Librarian in order to steal the Book of Cagliostro, Wong becomes the keeper of ancient tomes. Thanos and his mission to possess all six Infinity Stones pose a direct threat to Wong. After all, Wong took an oath to protect not only Earth, but also the mystical artifact entrusted to Doctor Strange, the Eye of Agamotto, which houses the Time Stone. Wong faces two of Thanos’ followers, Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw, during their invasion of Earth in pursuit of the Time Stone.

Wong joins all Masters of the Mystic Arts as warriors against dark forces and guardians of Earth. This mission joins Wong with The Ancient One and other masters such as Sol Rama, Daniel Drumm, Master Minoru, as well as Karl Mordo, before he turns his back on the Masters. As the Kamar-Taj Librarian, Wong aids Doctor Strange in his studies of the mystic arts, even granting him access to The Ancient One’s private collection after witnessing Strange’s innate abilities and comprehension. Becoming one of Strange’s strongest allies, Wong allows him to inherit the Eye of Agamotto once he masters his powers and joins him as a master at the New York Sanctum. Following the threat of Thanos’ pursuit of the Infinity Stones, Wong and Doctor Strange also ally with Avengers Iron Man and Bruce Banner, following Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw’s arrival in New York City.
