Synopsis:
Returning home after having beaten Mordo, Strange is suddenly whisked bodily to the side of The Ancient One. The Dread Dormammu, whose name has been spoken in the past, threatens to leave his dimension and come to Earth...which must never be! Strange's mentor is now too old to face him, so Strange travels to his domain. He faces one danger after another, each one causing Dormammu's rage to build. All the while, a mysterious girl watches Strange's progress, finally revealing herself in an attempt to warn him back to where he came from. But Strange says he must face the Dread One, and she wonders why she risked his wrath to warn the stranger. Strange confronts Dormammu, and warns him not to invade Earth. But Dormammu will not speak with "underlings," and demands The Ancient One face him. Strange tells Dormammu he cannot attack his mentor while he lives...and Dormammu accepts the challenge!
