Realizing Mordo's presence has been erased from his sanctum Strange suspects foul play, disposing of a hidden bomb just before it explodes. Stunned by the blast Mordo's minions imprison him so that he cannot use his magic. Strange attempts to telepathically contact The Ancient One, but fails because his spirit form is searching for the missing Clea. While Mordo's minions study Strange's cloak & amulet The Demon tries to probe his mind, but Strange is stronger and instead takes control of him. Fighting desperately Strange barely escapes his captors and remains virtually helpless in spirit form.
