With Dr Stephen Strange reduced to supernatural taxi service and an alien's sock poppet in the latest run of comics covering Marvel's big summer blockbuster event, Infinity, it struck me once more how shoddily Earth's Sorcerer Supreme has been treated in recent years.
With rumours (but no details) of a Dr Strange movie in the pipeline, how come this incredibly versatile character hasn't had his own title for ages and is instead limited to supporting roles in group outings?
As one of the original wave of Marvel characters from the 1960s that has endured through to the 21st Century, I still find it baffling that the House Of Ideas doesn't seem to feel that he merits his own comic series. I, for one, would buy it and I'm sure I'm not alone - Dr Strange is a character with limitless storytelling potential.
