[[WMG: "Nimbus Llewelyn" is actually a fourth-wall-breaking Doctor Strange.]]
There are a ''lot'' of similarities between the two, and [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou it would explain]] how Strange got onto the Wmg/TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness and WMG/TimeLord pages. Besides, let's face it--do we really think a little thing like the fourth wall would or could stop [[MemeticBadass Doctor Strange]]?


[[WMG: Voldemort will ally with the Black Council]]
As shown in Dresden-verse canon, the Black Council contains members from just about any organization it can get its claws in. And a restored Voldemort, combined with the power taken from Harry, would be a massive asset. Plus, in this universe, Kemmler and Grindelwald were allies, so there's a precedent for dark wizards of the wanded and wandless varieties to work together.
** As yet unconfirmed, but as of chapter 80, he has linked up with Selene. Considering that he later [[spoiler: dumps her as soon as he's got what he wanted]], and only allies with others, such as Dracula, to use them for his own interests, it seems most likely that he's acting on his own.



Judging by how much the author has stated he enjoys Peter and ships Peter/MJ ''hard'', it's hard to imagine that he won't keep Peter around. Sure, Peter could potentially stay alive and not become a hero... but we're talking about the TropeNamer for WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility.

Sure, Peter could potentially stay alive and not become a hero... but we're talking about the TropeNamer for WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility. Additionally, my guess is that he will receive some kind of SuperEmpowering beyond the Grey Court bite that will kick-start his abilities.



** Jossed. A passing mention in ''Ghosts of the Past'' notes that he's being passed off as having been kept on ice by HYDRA and experimented on as a mixture of trophy and guinea-pig. He's well regarded, but no one knows about the Winter Soldier aspect of his past.

[[WMG: Annihilus will play a major antagonistic role in a future volume.]]
I mean, come on. I really want it to happen and it's a possibility anyways.
He's implied to be the reason the Phoenix exists and chooses hosts(not Destruction of the Endless herself, but the Phoenix part of her) when Doctor Strange says "Of course, sometimes, a threat is so great that the universe has to solve its own problems. In this case… cue the Phoenix." If that is the case, then he would simply be too great a threat to simply ignore. If he was merely a one-mention character he wouldn't ever appear, but he continues to appear afterwards, most notably in Harry's first past vision. And if you remember the author's use of foreshadowing, that could mean he could appear in a future volume. Most likely not ''Ghosts of the Past'', but the volumes after it.

Trapped on her "endless quest" for the wish granting cup, this as explained in the typemoon wiki happens: "She jumps forward or backward in time from the moment of her death, and returns to that moment upon obtaining or failing to obtain the Grail. Should she claim it, her time will flow again and she will die just as history has recorded. Should she fail, all her memories are returned to her body, and she can either continue her search for the Grail or cancel the contract should she find a reason."

Put all of that together and it seems pretty likely that when Harry returned to his present, Peggy ended up joining him.

[[WMG:Barty Crouch Junior is impersonating his father]]
The events at the Quidditch World Cup confirm that he's still playing a role as Voldemort's agent in his current scheme, but he hasn't shown up since, and the absence of Mad-Eye Moody suggests that he's not impersonating him like in canon. Meanwhile, at the Yule Ball, Percy mentions how Crouch Senior hasn't been much the same since the World Cup, which he puts down to stress, but what if it really is a case of NotHimself? Plus, one can easily imagine Junior taking great joy out of impersonating his hated father to further his beloved Dark Lord's agenda.


[[WMG: Doctor Strange [[spoiler:is FakingTheDead]]]]
The man is one of the most powerful beings in the universe. He can time travel, can do magic people barely even dream about and can see the future. Something like [[spoiler:faking his own death]] should be easy.
How did he do it? [[spoiler:He didn't. He decided that, when he was to actually die in a gajillion years, he would time travel to the right point, so that, upon his death, Wanda would take the position of Sorceress Supreme.]]
Why did he do it? [[spoiler:Two reasons. The first is that he needs to carry out several missions that require certain degree of stealth, which would be a bit hard if people know he's around: with Wanda at the helm, people will think he's not around anymore, and Strange will have free hands to plan and act from the shadows. The second is that he knows [[HoldingOutForAHero people are relying a bit too much on his almost-omniscience and -omnipotency to solve the big problems]], so, by stepping back, he forces people to step up and stand on their own, while he remains hidden, only acting if it is ''really'' needed.]]

Since it's revealed that Voldemort got a power upgrade, courtesy of Selene and Magneto has been developed as an enemy to the Hellfire Club then I see both Voldemort and Selene joining forces to take down the Avengers. Which also means the Hellfire Club could play a huge part in this arc and Magneto could serve as an ally of The Avengers to bring forth revenge against the Hellfire Club and Selene.
