Dr. Strange? How the Movie Hero Is Different from the Comics

Doctor Strange is a superhero that needs no introduction. Still if you need one, here is a brief one: Created by Steve Ditko, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange is a brilliant but extremely egotistical neurosurgeon who meets a car accident and ends up losing his ability to perform surgeries ever again. Devastated, he travels across the seven seas, to look for a way to fix his hands and get his surgical abilities back. This is how he meets an old Sorcerer who is referred to as the Ancient One. Being his student, Doctor Strange masters mystical as well as martial arts.

Described as the “Mightiest Magician in the Cosmos”, the Doctor has an avid fan base. From cartoon series to movies, Doctor Strange has made many debuts. And 2016 will not be the first time a Doctor Strange movie is to premiere. The first movie actually came out in 1978 in which Doctor Strange was a psychiatry resident and not a neurosurgeon. With the 2016 version of Doctor Strange all set to be released in November, should we expect to see any changes made in the movie that are not from the original storyline?

Let us have a look.



With leading actor Benedict Cumberbatch playing the role of Doctor Stephen Strange we are so far told that just like in the comic book, he plays the role of a talented surgeon who meets an unfortunate car accident and lose his skills. Just like the comic book, he then sets on a journey at the end of which he comes across the Ancient One.

The Ancient One then teaches him magic which makes the Doctor fit enough to defend Earth from all its supernatural threats. So far, the only difference we notice between the plot of the comic and that of the film is in the character of Baron Mordo, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Mordo in the comic book is a complete villain throughout and throughout. However, in the movie his character is not entirely villainous.  Instead he is presented as an amalgamation of a number of characters.

We have not been told anything further because obviously that might be giving away certain big hints about the movie itself. Marvel fans all over the world are waiting for the movie’s premiere with batted breath. Critics are saying that it is going to be one of the most visually exciting movies ever to be produced under the banner of Marvel Cinematic Universe. And it is not just going to be the most visually exciting movie; people are betting that Doctor Strange will break all the records set by superhero movies of 2016.

That is saying a lot because earlier this year we had plenty of superhero movies making rounds. One superhero movie in particular Captain America: Civil War is a strong contender of being ranked as the superhero movie of the year. So will Doctor Strange beat Captain America too?

Only time will tell us that.
