* BigGood: In early Dr. Strange stories the Ancient One was still the Sorcerer Supreme and would help Dr. S=trange if he got in way over his head.

The AnthropomorphicPersonification of Death, which grants {{Immortality}} to the Sorcerer Supreme if s/he is deemed worthy. It often takes the form of a young woman, as which it earned the affections of the mad Titan {{Thanos}}. It grants authority to various Death Gods, Skyfathers and Hell Lords to take charge of souls after death or under certain arrangements. Though a largely amoral entity that ultimately desires the end of life itself, it is not actively malevolent and sees its duty as bringing an end to pain. It is thus opposed to those that are out to do far, far worse.

* AntiVillain: When {{Thanos}} killed half the universe to impress her, it worked. But though she has no problem whatever with killing she is averse to causing needless suffering or worse.
* DontFearTheReaper: While her [[{{Thanos}} consort and lover]] would gladly [[OmnicidalManiac kill everything in the universe for her]], and though she would find that very romantic, she is a necessary component of the universe and, further, sees herself as the end of pain and suffering. She is not actively malevolent or sadistic.

* SmugSnake: He is an extremely intelligent demonic entity and has diabolical plans that stretch across multiple dimensions and countless millennia... and they all tend to be beaten, because he is just that arrogant and can't deal with things not working out exactly like he wanted them to.

to:

* SmugSnake: A rare case of the trope overlapping with SmugSuper. He is an extremely powerful and intelligent demonic entity who is more than capable of holding his own against Doctor Strange and other Marvel heroes and has diabolical plans that stretch across multiple dimensions and countless millennia... and they all tend to be beaten, because he is just that arrogant and can't deal with things not working out exactly like he wanted them to.

* {{Badass}}: When you can give the ''Sorceror Supreme'' a run for his money every single time you face him, you qualify as this.



* EvilCounterpart: Like Strange, Dormammu is a sorcerer first and foremost, though a much more powerful one who can rely on his natural magical energy. More importantly, Dormammu's greatest flaw is his {{Pride}}, which is what Strange had to overcome to get the help and tutorship of the Ancient One. Though Strange was never as psychopathic as the Lord of Darkness, he was every bit as arrogant.

A brilliant but arrogant New York surgeon, Dr. Stephen Strange's life was turned upside down when a car crash caused irreparable nerve damage to his hands, preventing him from ever holding a scalpel again. Driven by arrogance and desperation, he traveled the world in search of a cure, finally arriving in Tibet to seek the help of the Ancient One, a powerful wizard and (unbeknownst to him) the Sorcerer Supreme, the mage charged with protecting the Earth from the otherdimensional Cosmic menacies who would threaten it.

It has [[TheThanosImperative recently been established]] that it is one of the Many-Angled Ones, immortal Lovecraftian entities that alter reality to bring about an end to death and allowing life to grow out of control and ferment as a cancer, and turning all living beings into creatures as alien and abominable as they are. It also established Shuma-Gorath and his brethern as one of the oldest sentient life forms in the multiverse, and is thus a truly ancient and terrifying evil.

* GodOfGods: More like God of gods of ''gods''. Shuma-Gorath claims that even Dormammu pales in comparison to his power and there is very little to contradict that; next to Zom and the Living Tribunal it is probably the most powerful being on this page, and Zom has a bad habit of dying or being a SealedEvilInACan. As ruler of a hundred alternate timelines, it has implicitly killed the likes of Eternity, Death and the other cosmic abstracts many times over[[note]]In ''TheThanosImperative'', Death is able to kill him and the Many-Angled Ones (though only temporarily, as they would inevitably reform, and it is later shown that he survived or even simply escaped), but that is due to the rules of the Cancerverse and the magical-mechanics of how they ruled it; the Cancerverse only existed because the Death of ''that'' universe had already been killed, and halfway through the story the Many-Angled Ones start pushing through the weaponised corpse of ''ComicBook/{{Galactus}}''- The Galactus Engine-, showing that they or their minions had killed him too, and used it to destroy another abstract cosmic entity and fight several others simultaneously (a fight the Engine was winning- the abstract entities had even started to retreat). It is all but stated that they are even stronger and that they were the creatures pushing the Galactus Engine through that were said to be yet more powerful still.[[/note]], and it might very well be one the top ten most powerful beings in the entire Marvel cosmology.
