* Given what Mordo did to Pangborn rendering him back to his paraplegic state, he would ''not'' waste doing the same to Strange if they met again, showing Mordo really is ''that'' ruthless about getting rid of magic users, no matter what good they have accomplished. If this does happen, Strange will be completely helpless, unable to use magic, unable to use his hands to defend himself, and even more mentally and emotionally traumatized, feeling everything he worked to get his hands back would all be for nothing.
** And, of all magic users Mordo could target, ''Scarlet Witch'' could be in more danger than any other--her magic is chaotic and can cause unpredictable and destructive results, has no formal training like Kaecilius did, so to Mordo that would make her a ''very'' dangerous wildcard.

Added DiffLines:

***Come ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', he has thrown this out the window entirely, as one of the first magical weapons he uses against Thanos is a sword, showing how far he's come in both skill and mindset.

Added DiffLines:

*** Dormammu's perspective is timeless. How's he supposed to change his mind about the bargain, if time doesn't pass for him? So far as he's concerned, he ''only just'' made his promise, and ''always will'' have just committed to stick to it.


%%The Eye of Agamotto and the Tesseract, like stated above, were on Earth for hundreds or thousands of years at a time; despite Malekith using the Aether at Greenwich, that power also spread throughout the other nine realms and was only on Earth for less than a week, nowhere near as long as other two Infinity Stones or even the Scepter, which has at least been on Earth for a few years, is still present without any protective casing, and serves a major plot point in both Avengers films. As for the Soul Stone, we know nothing about its powers in the MCU or which movie it will appear in at the time of this posting.



to:

* The mind-blowing "Open Your Mind" psychedelic sequence uses a ''lot'' of hand imagery. Of course it does: the Ancient One's background monologue about what's happening to Strange mentions that thought affects reality in the dimensions he's witnessing. The landscape of his experience is being shaped by his own obsession with repairing his damaged hands.

Added DiffLines:

** They had actually called brain death. The body itself was still alive and pumping blood, which is why they were wheeling him in for organ donation.

Added DiffLines:

***It was actually confirmed that Strange remembered all of the loops himself. The Time stone would be kinda useless if you couldn't recall your mistakes from before rewinding. And if you notice, he seems to be getting rather tired of delivering that same line repeatedly, as well.


* The casting of the Ancient One. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement Yes, we know the real-life reason had to do with politics]], but the way it was handled? 1.) Kamar-Taj seems to attract broken souls from all over the world, so the place became pretty multicultural over the ages. 2.) She was just the latest in a long line of masters; the Ancient One as depicted in the comics was likely ''her'' teacher. 3.) Swinton's Ancient One was definitely not as wise or pure as she seemed. Her motives for drawing on the Dark Dimension were understandable and probably saved a lot of lives, but she was still using forbidden techniques and dark sorcery, which can be a ''very'' slippery slope, even for someone as old and wise as she is.

Added DiffLines:

** Earlier, while practicing with the Time Stone, the beginnings of time being splintered is shown. This is because Stephen had just created a time paradox by adding back a page that had been stolen, something which should be impossible.



!! FridgeLogic
* Dormammu caves in to Strange's bargain for either keep killing him or leaving earth to never return. [[TakeAThirdOption Why can't Dormammu just choose to ignore Strange and keep his assault on earth?]] Considering their power discrepancy, it's unlikely that whatever Strange could do would even register on Dormammu. At worst, it would be like doing a job with a fly constantly bothering you - annoying, but not crippling.
** Because Strange can just trap him in time again. That's the whole point of the entire climax.

Added DiffLines:

** Torture is pain + time. The former, Dormammu would know about. But the latter, Dormammu doesn't understand. If Dormammu doesn't understand time well, he probably doesn't understand the concept of torture very well either.


* Since Mordo feels betrayed by the Anicent One, there's nothing stopping him from seeking out and killing his enemies. He no longer has a moral compass guiding him. Also, what if his enemies are kind, gentle folks? An enemy doesn't always mean bad guy. It's also implied that Mordo had a dark past before meeting the Ancient One.
