Enter, and meet me... My name is Stephen Strange. This is the name I acquired by birth. But I'm also Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, master of the mystic arts. On this evening I'm asked to write a littlest about myself.

Once I practiced as a surgeon but in a foolish accident of my own fault I lost the use, or precisely, the accuracy of my hands. This caused me to step out of the world of medicine and wander around the world.

During these travels I heard of the Ancient One and his healing powers and I found him. He taught me many things, but never restored my hands. As his apprentice I learned the way of the Vishanti, to control the forces of Cytorrak and the use of Seraphim's shield. This and many other things. But the most important thing I learned was about myself.

During this stay with the Ancient One I became a force of good by realizing what a fool I had been during my former life as a doctor in medicine. And when I finally left the blessed home of the ancient magician I was the new magical protector of the dimension in which the planet Earth resides.

Dr. Stephen V. Strange, M.D.
