Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange, simply abbreviated as just Doctor Strange, is a superhero from Marvel Comics. He is a former neurosurgeon who suffered nerve damage his hands in a car crash. He sought out The Ancient One, hoping to cure his disability, but abandons that notion after being taught to use and utilize magic from The Ancient One, eventually becoming the Sorcerer Surpreme of Earth.

Prior to his car accident, Stephen was extremely egotistical, arrogant, stubborn, and narrow-minded; however, this changed after the accident, which left Stephen a broken man, albeit also one extremely determined to heal himself.
After discovering the existence of the supernatural and becoming more involved in the dimensional wars; Stephen becomes far more selfless, moral, honorable, honest, responsible, open-minded and protective of his friends and comrades alike, he is also not about apologizing or admitting when he is wrong, as he apologize to Christine Palmer, his ex-girlfriend and love interest, for his arrogance and for taking his frustration out on her when he temporarily lost the use of his hands.
Stephen is highly intelligent, as he came up with several creative ideas; despite the fact that he has only recently become a sorcerer and had no experience compared to Mordo and his enemies.

When New York went under a powerful sleeping spell cast by Nightmare, Doctor Strange enlisted the help of Danny Rand, also known as Iron Fist. He questioned Iron Fist's choice in bringing Spider-Man with him. Doctor Strange explained to them that it was the work of Nightmare and claimed that faith had brought Spider-Man to be with them. Strange brought Spider-Man and Iron Fist to the Dream World to stop Nightmare. Doctor Strange fought against Nightmare, his horse Dreamstalker and his army of Dreamons, who overpowered him. For a while, Strange believed that he was too weak against Nightmare and lost his magical powers. He was convinced by Spider-Man that it was just a dream and regained his powers, and with the help of Spider-Man and Iron Fist, they sealed Nightmare in a magic box.
After they defeated him, Doctor Strange thanked Iron Fist and Spider-Man and reminded them to go back to Midtown High school before anyone figured out where they had gone.
