Doctor Strange Objects
Eye of Agamotto
- Along with his powers, strange has a wide variety of magical artifacts at his disposal. He can often be seen using the eye of Agamotto which grants him enhanced wisdom & allows him to see multiple timelines as well as past events. He can also use it to see into the minds of others and travel to other dimensions. It can only be wielded by one who has a clean soul and a pure heart.
Cloak of Levitation
- One of his other most used objects is the cloak of levitation which gives him the ability to fly and levitate. It can hit 25 mph for an unknown amount of time. Not much else is known about the cloak beyond that but it appears to have some sort of sentience.
Book of the Vishanti
- Rounding out the trilogy of his most-used artifacts is the book of the vishanti. Oddly enough, no one knows who wrote it but it has since become one of the most powerful sources of white magical knowledge on the planet. The book itself is known to be indestructible and seems to contain spells that are more about defense than offense.
- Despite being benevolent, the book has been known to contain some spells that can be quite dangerous if not used correctly. It currently resides in strange’s townhouse library in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City.
- He is weaker against science based adversaries although it is not really clear why this is. He is also only able to cast spells when he speaks so if someone were to gag him, he would essentially be rendered powerless. In spite of all his power, he is still human and is subject to all of the weaknesses that come with mortality. He’s only able to remain on the astral plane for 24 hours or else he can not return to the physical plane.
- Using magic actually takes a physical toll if he uses it too often. This can lead to vomiting among other things and it got to the point where he was no longer able to consume human food.
- Cursed by sorcerer Karl Mordo at the age of eight out of jealousy as he was already destined to become the next Sorcerer Supreme.
- Haunted by demons for years till the Ancient One intervened

- Could not practice surgery anymore due to nerve damage to his hands
- Refused a desk position at the hospital
- Lost all his wealth due to being unemployed and started drinking
- Tried everything to find a solution for his nerve condition
- As a last resort, sold all his belongings and moved to Tibet in search for the Ancient One
- Ancient One refused to make him better
- After witnessing the power of magic by the Ancient One, Strange decided to stay and study the powers of magic and mystic arts for the rest of his life
