Synopsis for "A Separate Reality"

Doctor Strange Vol 1 2 001.jpg

While Silver Dagger becomes aware that Dr. Strange still lives, Strange himself travels deeper into the Orb of Agamotto in hopes of finding it's center. Along the way he is attacked by a giant soul stealing creature. Saved by an entity appearing as the Silver Surfer, Strange also gets the "Surfers" aid in freeing the other souls trapped inside the creature. Realizing his physical body is missing, Strange is taken to a castle where he finds his body among a bunch of beings resembling the Defenders and other allies of Dr. Strange.

When the Queen who appears as Valkyrie arrives, Strange is offered to stay for tea, however he refuses and the heroes attack. Strange fights them off until the queen stops the fight and tells him that he has a choice between life or death as a way out of the Orb. Choosing life, Strange takes a illusionary Aragorn to fly to the center of the Orb.
