Doctor Strange No. 29


In 1978's Doctor Strange #29, the titular "master of the mystic arts" fights alongside the superhero NIghthawk in the story "He Who Stalks!" written by Roger Stern, with art by Tom Sutton and Ernie Chan. Frank Brunner's cover features the interdimensional villain "The Death-Stalker."

Dr. Strange, Marvel Comic's "Sorcerer Supreme," was introduced in 1963 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the creative team behind the popular superhero Spider-Man. A principal character in the Marvel Universe since his debut in "Strange Tales #110," the Doctor has headlined his own comic book on several occasions, this example coming from Volume 2, published from 1974-1987.

A surgeon who turns to magic following a devastating injury, Dr. Strange has appeared in numerous Marvel video games, animated programs and a 1978 live action television movie. In the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including 2016's "Dr. Strange," the character has been portrayed by actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
