D'Spayre. It's D'Spayre! He's using the Cube! ... Cap's death...the war between the heroes...the loss of security...their own lives...all their wishes for something else...all their sadness for not getting what they long for...all coming here, all being amplified...filling up every nook and cranny of our world...until we drown in the regret.
Now let the rising tide of power / From birth of stars to final doom / Reveal the place, the form, the hour / Where light's salvation forth may bloom / Where seen and unseen twine and blend -- And darkness end!
I see you must be forced to hear me -- this is now guerrilla warfare -- there is no sanctuary.Witness, however, my friends...some times to wrest victory from apparent disaster, one must force the devastation -- to completion!
Ah...like most...dabblers...you understand too quickly. None may claim the Mantle Esoteric -- though it can be given. As I do...now...without pause...or lament. But...you'll find a Sorceress Supreme is not an empress. You fill this...vacancy...to discover humility...in short -- TO SERVE!
Oh...Ancient One, if you can hear your former disciple...I think I am losing... my self... I haven't felt so... empty... so alone... since in my arrogance and impatience, I first destroyed my hands... and learned I would never be a surgeon again.
It may feel as if I am not with you, Clea, but I am. Everything I do, you are a part of it... for I love you. Love, to me, is Alchemy... the transformation of the ordinary into something precious... and powerful.
I shouldn't be here. I made a promise to the man at the top of this mountain that I would never come to him for help. Technically speaking, he doesn't even exist. And the odds are strong he'll kill me for even attempting to make contact...
You wanted to end all magic. Well, I've got a better job for you. This is it. Zelma Stanton only saved one book from my library. Bless her soul. And it's one I wrote. I call it The Thing in the Cellar.
Mordo, Nightmare, Satana, the Orb(the Orb-- still can't get over that one), and Dormammu. This was quite the week from Hell. But at least I showed them I'm still as stubborn as ever when it comes to being murdered.
This is Doctor Strange, broadcasting on all known mystical wavelengths. The Earth is under assault. All sites of magical significance are possible targets. The Empirikul are here. And they are not at all what we were expecting. Our enemies are not magicians. Their weapons are technological. But don't allow that to make you overconfident. This... is unlike any technology I've ever seen. A technology with the power to disrupt magic.
Youmaniac! Don't you realize the chaos you've triggered? Despite his power, Galactus is fundamentally a creature of science! To introduce a force that... that alien to the mystic realms is unconscionable! Nothing there follows the laws of existence that he carries with him! His presence there may very well unbalance existence itself!
The remnants of this recently destroyed environmental maintenance platform are rich with the aura of the temporal anomaly which I recently detected! Whoever he is, it is obvious that he wants to change a distant future! Though I can only guess at his motives, I sense that untold cataclysm will surely result from his actions!
Listen -- I know you want to stand with the Hulk...bear witness...but you know what's happening. No one here is going to survive. This is the end, Amadeus...and even more importantly...this is the end he wants.
Those of you who can hear my call through the stone... I am Doctor Strange. We must have a parley. Imminent danger approaches. I summon a gathering of the Infinity Watch.Earth. Midnight tomorrow in New York's Central Park. I guarantee safe conduct for all. As some of you may know, the Infinity Stones are different than they once were. I don't know why yet -- but we must make sure they're safeguarded. I ask that you come and hear what I have to say. It's critical we six souls safeguard the stones... because we may have only one opportunity to stave off calamity.
You don't have to be ashamed of who you've been... what you've done. I know... better than you could imagine... what it is to sink to the depths. To be on bended knee before God -- screaming for deliverance.
Our struggles of late. I have had to call upon darker forces than I would normally use….Forces I thought I could control, but I can’t. It was arrogance. The same arrogance that led me down the path I’m on in the first place. My hands are useless again. And I tried to disguise it. All these years, and I have learned nothing. There’s—I’ve had no time to deal with what I’ve done, and the forces are overpowering me. I wanted to help you, my friends. I wanted so much to help my old friend Bruce Banner. But I failed. And I have failed at my task as Sorcerer Supreme of this dimension. I—I don’t think I can help you anymore. I need to atone for what I have done. I need to relearn all that I have lost. And put back magics which I had no business using in the first place. I can’t help you anymore. You need to leave here. We all do. I’m so sorry, my friends.
It would require taking almost all of that power from you, and investing it in Mjolnir. You would be back where you were before you inherited his power. But there's something else. If I do this, if I take from you the power to recreate Mjolnir, then you and the hammer will be bound together as never before. As goes Mjolnir, so goes Thor. If the hammer is ever destroyed or damaged again this badly - you will die.
And I have found a most courageous ally in the Amazing Spider-Man. Brash and flippant he may be, but I sense in his young life a recent tragedy, perhaps greater even than my own. Whatever the truth may be, Spider-Man has a valiant spirit to match his astounding powers! Clearly, he has accepted the great responsibility that great power demands!
She thanks me for my help. I tell her that I wish the world could see the X-Men as I do. She doesn't care about the world, she says. Blink is alive, free from Selene's influence. That's what Emma cares about now. I ask her what happens next. She says that's up to Blink now. But I don't need to see the future to know what fate holds for Blink. Clarice Ferguson is a mutant, a survivor, a hero. That makes her an X-Man.
Brilliant young medical student once rescued by the City's costumed champions dedicates her life to their care, yes? A skilled physician, she secretly dreams of one day becoming a "super hero" herself, etcetera, etcetera.
While we were in New Atlantis, I took the liberty of conjuring a more...aggressive version of Belial's Beckoning. I put the call out to Defenders, Secret Defenders, even those who were only Defenders for a Day... Pretty much everyone. And I didn't take 'no' for an answer.
"The cycle of life is essential to the very core of existence, to the survival of the universe. To fight that cycle…is to fight the very forces of creation itself. And that power…is not within my grasp. Or yours….We all die, Peter. You, me, and those we love most dearly. All we can do is whether or not those we love die alone. I do not regret that I loved them, only that, in so many cases, I was not there to do what is perhaps the most important thing of all. I was not there to say goodbye."
