Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness

The Multiverse of Madness sent Doctor Strange on a harrowing trip across endless possibilities. In this article, we will discuss all Variants of Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Doctor Strange isn’t the only hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When America Chavez found that Defender Strange would not defend her, the movie instantly pounded home that message. To keep her powers from falling into the wrong hands, the ponytailed master of the mystic arts was willing to kill her. The first Variant in the film failed to integrate her abilities and did not live long.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is arrived, and based on the previews for the next Marvel film, there will be other personalities in the sequel. The concept of variants was first introduced to the MCU in the Disney+ series Loki, which saw Tom Hiddleston and other actors play the god of mischief, but Benedict Cumberbatch has pulled double duty as the Master of the Mystic Arts, playing a slew of Strange variants in Doctor Strange’s sequel. Let’s take a look at all of the variants in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Variants In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

MCU Doctor Strange (naturally)

Benedict Cumberbatch, who previously starred in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, reprises his role as Doctor Stephen Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts in the MCU proper. But it’s not the version he’s playing when the film starts. This states one of the variants in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Defender Strange

Doctor Strange isn’t the only hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When America Chavez found that Defender Strange would not defend her, the movie instantly pounded home that message. To keep her powers from falling into the wrong hands, the ponytailed master of the mystic arts was willing to kill her. The first Variant in the film failed to integrate her abilities and did not live long.

But his body lingered for more amusement. Main Strange used Defender Strange’s (variant in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) corpse as a flesh puppet to fight the Scarlet Witch at Mount Wundagore during Dreamwalking.

838 Strange

Strange discovers that the Stephen Strange of that Earth perished fighting Thanos, sacrificing himself for the good of the cosmos, after arriving on Earth-838. He first appears as a statue before being shown to have been murdered by Black Bolt in a flashback (having revealed to the rest of the Illuminati that he was being taken over by The Darkhold). With a cloak collar and elegant globes, the hit suit is closer to the classic comic book Doctor Strange style.

Sinister Strange

What could be worse than killing another universe by accident? Sinister Strange did precisely that by destroying his people. Doctor Strange has been taken over by The Darkhold, as demonstrated by his manner and the third eye on his forehead, and he appears on an Earth that has already been struck by an incursion. In combat with his Earth-616 counterpart, he died.

Zombie Strange

He isn’t technically a distinct Variant, but he does have a unique appearance! While stranded in another reality, MCU Strange (aka 616 Strange as the film makes explicit) dreams and walks back into his universe, but the only body present is Defender Strange’s corpse. As a result, he transforms into Zombie Strange and absorbs the souls of the damned into his cape.
