Synopsis
Sensing evil, Strange is so focused on seeking it out he's almost hit by a truck. He calls upon The Ancient One, who warns him of the nature of the evil, but is still mystified. Then he finds himself confronted by someone (or something) who takes his own form, and tells him he's "already defeated". Only when he discovers his oldest enemy is at the bottom of it does he also realize he was hit by the truck-- and has been in a hospital bed ever since! On recovering, he erases the memory of the night's events from the doctor's mind, as "Many things there are that mankind must not know..."
