Strange reaches Greenwich Village safely, but discovers "one of Mordo's Demons" has taken over his sanctum! In a hidden cave in Tibet, The Ancient One's servant wonders what his near-unconscious master refers to by "Eternity". Using a disguise from a costume shop, Strange bluffs his way into his own house. But when he tries to consult the "All-Seeing Eye", he finds out it's been mystically booby-trapped, sending a signal to Mordo & Dormammu of his whereabouts! Clea wonders about the "Dread One"'s intentions, and senses Strange must be in danger. Mordo arrives and battles Strange fiercely. As Strange is about to use a potent spell, Dormammu speaks thru his "partner", and Strange suddenly realizes who is behind the attacks-- just before he vanishes from sight...
