Synopsis for "Sorcerer Supreme of the Galaxy: Part One"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Doctor Strange Vol 5 #1.

Doctor Strange finds himself ensnared by the Elder God X'axal. X'axal begins to taunt Doctor Strange until he calls upon the Flames of the Faltine which hurts X'axal for a brief moment. Strange then uses the Eye of Agamotto to escape from X'axal's dimension through a portal that leads back to New York. Strange uses a spell to close the portal so X'axal, as well as his acolytes, are stuck in their dimension. With the threat adverted, we see Doctor Strange rejoice in his victory... and we are then greeted with a time jump. Seven years later, the narrator notes Doctor Strange's right eye suddenly becomes blind to the mystical world. Two days later, his left eye follows. Shortly thereafter, all of Doctor Strange's magical artifacts slowly die out until no magical life remains inside them; he has lost all access to his magic. Doctor Strange begins to panic, and as he grows desperate his emotions explode as he clutches his now dead Cloak of Levitation, crying into the night.

Completely alone, Doctor Strange tries to call upon some of his old friends to help him, with no luck. He decides that he might as well integrate into normal society, but realizes he simply can't do it. After some time, he calls upon Tony Stark for help. Tony insists that Doctor Strange can regain his magic, and when Strange tells Tony that all magic on Earth has completely disappeared... Tony suggests that he explore the cosmos to find magic. Doctor Strange agrees after Tony offers him a spaceship that is easy to pilot. As Doctor Strange flies over a mysterious new alien planet, a meteoroid hits his ship which sends him crashing into a city. He is quickly rescued, and is greeted by the aliens once he exits his ship. As Doctor Strange asks to be directed to a magic user, an alien responds with "What is 'magic'?". Doctor Strange is subsequently captured and put into prison, where he is trapped.

Synopsis for "Sorcerer Supreme of the Galaxy: Part Two"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Doctor Strange Vol 5 #2.

Doctor Strange is on his knees, as the narrator reminisces about a time before his imprisonment when he was a simple surgeon. He cleans a Gryndan's shoes with a dirty rag and his tattered hands. He reveals that he is imprisoned on the planet Grynda, and that they're a highly technologically advanced race the likes of which he has never seen before. Strange jokes, saying that their technology is almost magical. Yet, this moment is short-lived, as he is then experimented on by his alien captors. He explains that their curiosity for him is vast, but their curiosity in space travel is non-existent. As the day comes to an end, Strange begins drawing magical incantations and spells on a wall in his cell. He desperately tries to feel for some sliver of magic that he can grasp onto, some "eldritch energy" that he could use to escape. But there is none to be had. Strange reveals that the Gryndans were treating him like a toy, and were feeding him a nutrient paste once a day that reminded him of a sweetfruit given to him by a friend a thousand years ago.

After seventy-three days of imprisonment, the Gryndans throw a new prisoner into his cell. She introduces herself to Strange, asking questions about what he breathes and what he has with him. Taking interest in Strange's spacesuit, she begins to reach for it until she is quickly stopped by Strange. She reveals that she's an arcanologist, someone who searches the universe for magical objects. Doctor Strange asks why she is in his cell, and she reveals that she found a magical object hidden in the planet, that she was subsequently arrested for stealing. Strange asks her to show him what it looked like, and when she does, Strange realizes that he's familiar with the object. It's the Eye of Basphorus, which is an ancient gem that evoked fear in many magicians. He claims that this gem can grant any person one spell which has limitless capabilities. Strange begins to smile, realizing that this gem will return all the magic he had lost. But before he could think any further, the other prisoner in his cell begins calling him an Earthbilly. She reveals that she recognized his accent, and that she knows he is from Earth. Strange realizes that she is building a mysterious item, and he asks her what she is building. She reveals that it is a technowand which she can use to get them out of prison. Strange agrees, and asks her to alter his internal universal translator chip so he can sound more like a Gryndan. Exclaiming that the prisoners are escaping, a Gryndan guard rushes to the cell only to see Strange and the prisoner holding her wand. She uses it, which explodes the bars of their cell with a spell known as the Door of Akhnu. Surprised that she was able to conjure a spell without any other artifact, Strange asks how she could ever do such a thing. She reveals that it is technomancy, a method in which she overrides the need for magical artifacts with a technological application. They escape from their cells, and sneak around to see that the Gryndans have begun building spaceships for galactic travel. Strange is shocked, as he realizes that the reason why they would want to travel space is because of him. Thanks to him, Gryndans have begun to lust for everything Earth has to offer, as they saw it all through Strange's memories.

Strange, fearful, tells the prisoner that they have to stop the Gryndans as soon as possible. However, as soon as he says this he realizes that she has gone off to steal the Eye of Basphorus. Returning with the gem, she reveals that she also found some of Strange's stuff as well. Doctor Strange attempts to use the gem by invoking an incantation, hoping it will restore his magical powers, but he has no such luck. Both Strange and the prisoner make a break for it, as they escape the planet inside of the prisoner's spaceship. Strange tells her to go back, but she exclaims that it would be suicide for both her and Strange to attempt to stop the entire planet by themselves. Agreeing, Strange sits down as the ship exits. But, Strange has a change of heart, as he jumps out of the ship holding the Eye of Basphorus. Floating in space, he tries the incantation once again, exclaiming "Heart on fire... blood aboil...". The gem works, and Strange uses it to summon a magical barrier around the entire planet of Grynda. The barrier is set to seal the aliens inside forever, and Strange reveals that the gem required a person full of adrenaline to activate their spell. Relieved that the predicament is over, Doctor Strange reveals his name to the prisoner. She reveals her name to him, and says that she is Pkzkrfmknna. Strange jokes, saying the name sounds like a sneeze, and offers to call her Kanna instead. Kanna asks Strange where they should go next, and Strange exclaims that he felt great being able to harness magic again. He suggests that they continue exploring space so that he may find more magic, and she agrees.

Elsewhere, a mysterious magical accounting firm has found out that Doctor Strange used the Eye of Basphorus to encase Grynda in a magical barrier. A mysterious man disapproves of this action, and the story ends with him saying "This won't do at all."
