Quote1.png 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.

Sensational Spider-Man Vol 1 22

Man-Thing Vol 3 2
Quote1.png On the contrary, my friend. I think your salvation lies in your returning to your blood, antagonistic roots. In other words, Namor--follow your rage. Quote2.png
Marvel Team-Up Vol 2 8
Quote1.png I have been accused of being unrelenting. Merciless. Perhaps I am. For I have looked into that heart of darkness. I know the chill of evil. I have clearly seen that, no matter what, sometimes the night cannot be kept at bay. So I carefully choose my battles. I fight those I can win. And make sure the ones I can't win are worth dying for. Quote2.png
Shadows and Light Vol 1 2
Quote1.png 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! Quote2.png
Untold Tales of Spider-Man Strange Encounter Vol 1 1
Quote1.png And how few will ever know the price he has paid for the good of the many... ...no matter how much it hurt the one. Quote2.png

Amazing Spider-Man Vol 2 58
Quote1.png The magics are being abused. Quote2.png
Avengers Vol 1 502
Quote1.png My theory... Listen to me. This chaos magic -- the source of her new "reality-altering powers..." I am the master of the mystic arts -- and I am telling you... there's no such thing as chaos magic. Please forget we are talking about your friend. And listen to me tell you the story of an orphaned mutant with a sordid, violent past... with powers she did not earn nor can she control... Powers she never fully understood. Can you understand the declicate mindset of a woman, a person, who has control over reality? It means reality controls her. Imagination becomes the enemy. Structure disappears. Reality, eventually, as she knows it, starts to slip away. Elude her. Blur. Drama, conflict, tragedy. They become excuses to change the world to fit the image that she has for it. Anything she doesn't like, she can change. No matter how slight. People. Places. Things. Everything is hers to change. But every time she does that, every time she gives in to her desires, no matter how noble they may be... a little more of her slips away. She loses herself. Her reason. But she struggles quietly every day to keep it in check -- to keep it all together. For a person of strong mind and body, for a person of pure spirit... the task of coping with these powers would be all-consuming. But here's a woman for whom, by the nature of her upbringing and occupation... every day is stressful, chaotic... and after a life lived with lost love, violence, and drama, what does she do? She says to herself: "I deserve happiness. I want to bring something into this world that is good. That I can love." And she gives birth to children... even though she can't. She played mommy to make herself feel like someone she thinks is normal. And that ends tragically as well? If I told you a story like this, you'd say to yourself, this sounds like a person who has lost control of themselves on a deep psychological level. You'd say this sounds like a disturbed person. Now, does anything I have described not sound like Wanda Maximoff? Quote2.png
Avengers Vol 1 503
Quote1.png Oh, I'm so sorry. Forgive me. I'll try and be a tad more quiet as I desperately struggle to break free -- and save all creation! Quote2.png
Defenders Vol 3 2
Quote1.png You're a good man who's led a good life. Prepare to die. Quote2.png
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Vol 1 2
Quote1.png I have gazed into the baleful orifices of Dormammu... but they were pretty compared to you. Quote2.png
X-Statix Presents: Dead Girl Vol 1 2
Quote1.png There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective, and it is not my place to influence the evolution of the superhuman role. Quote2.png
Civil War Vol 1 6
Quote1.png If you find her, if by some miracle -- I doubt what you'll find will help you feel better about what's happened. It may make things worse. Quote2.png
New Avengers Vol 1 26
Quote1.png What, you plan to turn into a purple dragon while I take the form of a germ for you to catch? Please, do you honestly want to have a wizard's duel with me? Quote2.png
Doctor Strange: The Oath Vol 1 5
Quote1.png Don't be snooty, Wong. Quote2.png
New Avengers Vol 1 28
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
New Avengers Annual Vol 1 2
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Avengers / Invaders Vol 1 7
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Thor Vol 1 602
Quote1.png I'd forgotten how terrific it felt to simply relax and not have to feel responsible for every little thing that goes wonky... Quote2.png
Strange Vol 2 1
Quote1.png If you do not pay the utmost attention, magic can get away from you in a heartbeat. Every spell, every sigil, every manipulation... you must keep a close eye on everything so it doesn't backfire. Quote2.png
Strange Vol 2 2
Quote1.png Tony Stark. Do you remember me? I'm Dr. Stephen Strange. I've come to show you the way out of this hole you're in. The world needs it's Iron Man. Quote2.png

Spider-Man: Fever Vol 1 2
Quote1.png Without the Eye of Agamotto...we forfeit... Everything. Quote2.png
New Avengers Vol 2 2
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
X-Men: To Serve and Protect Vol 1 3
Quote1.png Loose the vapors of Valtorr which kept the truth concealed -- by the blessed three Vishanti, let my garb now be revealed. Eye of Agamatto, lead me to the one behind this... Quote2.png
Doctor Strange: From the Marvel Vault Vol 1 1

Incredible Hulks Vol 1 633
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png

New Avengers Vol 2 33
Quote1.png On the card is written his last known location. You mission requires travel. To a distant land where old ways are practiced. Where the people and customs will seem unworldly and alien to you. Quote2.png
Daredevil Vol 3 32
Quote1.png I need more [power]. I want to be able to move worlds and shake them to their foundations. I want enough power in my hands to tear planets from the heavens and place them in a new sky. Quote2.png
New Avengers Vol 3 14
Quote1.png Wade, I cannot rip Preston from your mind. You must allow her to leave. Quote2.png
Deadpool Vol 5 24
Quote1.png When you say "the Hulk," you think you know what that means. But the Hulk we knew no longer exists. There is no humanity left in him. So what we were dealing with was an animal. A monster. Quote2.png
Savage Hulk Vol 2 5
Quote1.png Illyana Rasputin. Darkchild, if you prefer. My name is Stephen Strange. I am Sheriff of Agamotto and the Right Hand of Doom. Quote2.png

Invincible Iron Man Vol 3 3
Quote1.png Impossible? I've learned never to use that word in my line of work. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 4
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 5
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 10
Quote1.png This is just the way I look now, Wong. Say hello to the new face of magic. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 11
Quote1.png Clowns. Of course. There's gonna be a lot of clowns. Isn't there? Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 13

Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 16
Quote1.png You can tell me, I'm a doctor. Quote2.png
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Vol 1 16
Quote1.png I've been going about this all wrong. But so have you. Love. That's how you think you can hurt me? Love's not even in the job description for a Sorcerer Supreme. But you know what is? Pain. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 19
Quote1.png The island of Manhattan is under siege by the Darkforce Dimension... and I'm trapped in a gilded golf cart... with a pack of overgrown children. Quote2.png

Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme Vol 1 10
Quote1.png Oh, the many years I've waited to hear you speak those words, Mordo. Now, shall we end this? Your awesome stockpile of magic... versus my carefully honed skills and experience? Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 24
Quote1.png The cup grants you... a kind of immortality, Yao. You'll age slowly. And while you may not live forever... you do live long enough to teach all of us. We are your legacy... Master. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme Vol 1 12
Quote1.png I just can't shake the feeling... this has all happened before. Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 4 25
Quote1.png I'll be with you in a moment, young man. For now, please just stand by. As buffoonish as he seems, Baron Mordo can be dangerous. Quote2.png

Quote1.png Your sword knows who your allies are and where to find them. Quote2.png
Warriors of Three Sovereigns Vol 1 8
Quote1.png 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... Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 1 382

Doctor Strange Vol 5 3
Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Infinity Countdown Vol 1 5

Quote1.png Would you like to know why I won't let you have Bleecker Street? Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 5 9
Quote1.png You maniac! 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! Quote2.png
Doctor Strange Vol 5 12
Quote1.png Peter. Some things are beyond magic and medicine. Some things can't be avoided... some things just have to be faced. Quote2.png

Quote1.png My name is Dr. Stephen Strange. As Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, I have a unique and demanding responsibility to protect it from any mystical menaces that may threaten it. But I'm also the world's greatest neurosurgeon, and the Hippocratic oath is a lifetime vow. So I've reached an arrangement with the hospital: They call me in only for the operations that no one else -- no one else -- has the skill to perform. Quote2.png

Quote1.png This one doesn't like me judging her and is thinking of creatively brutal ways to murder me. Quote2.png
Bellona (The Sisters) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Her name is Kushala. The Demon Rider. Like my other companions, she is a Sorcerer Supreme. And like all of them, she is hiding something. Quote2.png
Kushala (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Her name is Nina. She calls herself The Conjuror. She's Brazilian. A Sorcerer Supreme from the 1950s. And that's all I know about her. But I sense she knows more about The Forgotten than any of us. Quote2.png
Nina (Sorcerer Supreme) (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I need more power. I want to be able to move worlds and shake them to their foundations. I want enough power in my hands to tear planets from the heavens and place them in a new sky. Quote2.png
Stephen Strange (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Can you understand the delicate mindset of a woman, a person, who has control over reality? It means reality controls her. Imagination becomes the enemy. Structure disappears. Reality, eventually, as she knows it, starts to slip away. Elude her. Blur. Drama, conflict, tragedy. They become excuses to change the world to fit the image that she has for it. Anything she doesn't like, she can change. No matter how slight. People. Places. Things. Everything is hers to change. But every time she does that, every time she gives in to her desires, no matter how noble they may be... a little more of her slips away. She loses herself. Her reason. Quote2.png
Wanda Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Billy Kaplan has been many things. A Young Avenger. A grown-up Avenger. An X-Man. And apparently in the not too distant future... he replaces me as the Sorcerer Supreme. Quote2.png

No human, no mortal has ever dared to go so deep. We are far beyond the level of those who attack us. Here the demons we know-- Mephisto, Satannish-- would be like mice in a great temple.
