Synopsis for "What Lurks Beneath the Mask?"

Reprint of the 2nd story from
Strange Tales #136

Dormammu captures Clea and takes her prisoner for her involvement in the release of the Mindless Ones during one of Dormammu's attempts at destroying Doctor Strange. While in the Earth dimension, Doctor Strange continues to seek out information about Eternity, while trying to hide from Mordo and his minions. However, with each mystic he visits Strange finds dead ends. Visiting the Aged Genghis, Doctor Strange is given a scroll that is supposed to bring him to Eternity.

However, it is the wrong one, and Strange finds himself in a world filled with masks and a being bound to a plaque. Unmasking him, it turns out to be a demon that tricks others into unmasking it so that it can in turn steal their bodies and imprison their spirits. Although Doctor Strange falls for this trap, he uses his mental control over his cloak of levitation to make his enemy to unmask and free him. Battling the demon, Doctor Strange easily overpowers him and then sets all his victims free before returning to his own dimension.

With all other avenues exhausted, Doctor Strange decides that the only way to learn of Eternity is to probe further into the Ancient One's mind, even at risk of his life.

Choosing to probe the mind of the Ancient One to learn the secret location of Eternity, Doctor Strange must combat his own master's mystic defenses barring those who seek to probe his mind. Getting through these defenses after some effort, Doctor Strange is told by his master how to access a doorway to the realm of Eternity.

Traveling to a lone peak in the mountains, Doctor Strange mystically accesses this doorway with his Eye of Agamotto, and travels through it. Baron Mordo arrives on the location just seconds after the portal disappears.

Traveling to Eternity's realm, Doctor Strange comes face to face with the living embodiment of Eternity. Strange asks the being to grant him with the power to defeat Dormammu and save his master, however after much consideration Eternity decrees that Strange needs no additional power, as he has the means to defeat Dormammu on his own.

Traveling back to Earth's dimension, Doctor Strange learns that Baron Mordo had kidnapped the unconscious body of the Ancient One and transported him to the Dark Dimension and is now being held hostage along with Clea. Strange is then told to duel Mordo for their freedom.
