Doctor Stephen Strange, commonly known as Doctor Strange, was a neurosurgeon who became Earth's Sorcerer Supreme.
Stephen Strange was a renowned neurosurgeon before an accident that left his surgical career in ruin. However, Strange delved into and mastering the magical arts. After hearing rumors of the mystical Ancient One, Strange traveled to the East. He found the Ancient One's Tibetan palace, where he was taught mysticism under the Ancient One. Strange then witnessed the Ancient One's apprentice, Baron Mordo, betrayed his master and left to pursue power for its own sake. Strange and Mordo would become rivals and clashed often in the future.
Strange later returned to the United States and became a mystical consultant, establishing his Sanctum Sanctorum in New York's Greenwich Village. He was attended by Wong, who had became both Strange's servant and his friend. The mysterious doctor's reputation grew, and Strange even became an occasional consultant to local and federal authorities.
Strange normally traveled the astral plane, where he contacted with mutant telepath Charles Xavier and became acquaintances. He first met Superman when Strange had first traveled to the Fortress of Solitude in astral state to assess him; Superman's meditation training had almost let him reach the astral plane drawing the attention of the Sorcerer Supreme. The good Doctor had thought to find a threat to Earth but had been pleasantly surprised, finding that Superman was no invader, only a youth in the last stages of grief. In the few months before leaving, Superman and the Doctor had discussed several topics and established themselves as allies.
Strange would later traveled to the Dark Dimension, where he encountered and battled its corrupted despot Dormammu. After defeating Dormammu and saving the Dark Dimension, Strange was approached by Clea, a novice magician and the true ruler of the Dimension, who became his pupil. Strange and Clea work side by side, going on several misadventures and fighting against Dormammu and thwarted his bids to reclaim power over the Dark Dimension. Over time, Strange and Clea fell in love, and were eventually married. However, the marriage was marred due to Clea's duties to the Dark Dimension and a combination of being an experienced sorceress and a lack of appreciation from her husband.
Strange would come to Superman's aid when several members of the X-Men were abducted and mind-controlled by Baron Mordo and Mesmero. During that time, Strange had also acquiescence Superman in rescuing Clea from Dormammu. Thereafter, Superman helped Strange's marriage.
