* EvilIsNotAToy: During WorldWarHulk, Strange allowed himself to be possessed by the demonic entity Zom. A later storyline revealed that he had continued to borrow from Zom to bolster his fading magics. Both times the power used him far more than he used it.

** He invoked Zom again (technically a fragment of Zom's essence) in ''WorldWarHulk'' as a last-minute desperation move. It didn't work, and the fallout led him to give up the position of Sorcerer Supreme for a while.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed[=/=]ComicBookFantasyCasting: Creator/SteveDitko's Strange looks a lot like VincentPrice (once he lost the Asian features), something most artists afterwards don't seem to realize.

* CreateYourOwnVillain: In order to pay the price for using his magic without straight up killing himself, Dr. Strange and Wong created an entity that would absorb all of the pain he would suffer otherwise. That entity ended up becoming Mr. Misery, an EldritchAbomination that has never known anything but pain and suffering, so when it gets loose...

Added DiffLines:

* MultipleChoiceChosen: When Doctor Strange loses the right to be the Sorcerer Supreme due to his actions during ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk'' (long story), he knows that there are [[http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Sorcerer_Supreme_Candidate several possible candidates]] to be the next Sorceror Supreme (he even shows the Avengers their images). The Eye of Agamotto has vanished and will go to the candidate, and Dr. Strange must find and train him or her.

** As noted below, he's also a ''literal'' SuperDoc, being a doctor with superpowers.



* SuperDoc: Writers who [[ForgotAboutHisPowers remember he has an M.D.]] typically make him into one of these. In Comicbook/NewAvengers he has done everything from giving an injection to delivering a baby.

Doctor Strange was the unofficial inspiration for the lead character in ''Film/DoctorMordrid'', who was made into a CaptainErsatz to avoid legal issues. The good doctor will be joining the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse with ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' as part of Phase 3, on November 4th, 2016. He will be played by Creator/BenedictCumberbatch.

* AlmightyIdiot: In one arc, Strange destroyed a primordial entity of Chaos by assuming its power, killing it - and then killing himself. This led to him briefly becoming an all-powerful transcendent being with no ego or identity. Ironically, [[NiceJobFixingItVillain it was one of Strange's old enemies who dragged him back into the "illusion" of self]].

He should not be confused with [[DrStrangelove Dr. Strangelove]], or Professor Hugo Strange, the Franchise/{{Batman}} villain. (Stephen's popularity, in fact, seems to have been a driver for Hugo being largely sidelined by DC for ''decades''; ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' is the first time Hugo's gotten major attention in a long, long time.)
