Synopsis for "Love Is the Spell, The Spell Is Death!"
As super-heroes gather for the funeral of Dr. Strange, he finalizes a battle at sea. After returning home for rest, Doc goes into his Astral Form. Dormammu takes over Doc's body and attempts to kill Doc's spirit.
- At this point in time, the general populace of Earth believes that Doctor Strange was killed in combat with the Beyonder in Secret Wars II #9. The funeral was not real, but a spell that Doctor Strange conjured to hide himself from the world.
- Doctor Strange finds the Morlock tunnels abandoned. This is due primarily to the actions of the Marauders who slaughtered dozens of Morlocks in an event known as the Mutant Massacre.
- Dormammu was previously believed to have been destroyed in Doctor Strange (Vol. 2) #51.
- It is hypothesized that the Old One and his eldritch prison island are respectively Cthulhu, one of the Old Ones, and R'lyeh, though it remained unconfirmed.
