Appearing in "Avenger of the Supernatural"
Synopsis for "Avenger of the Supernatural"
The Vishantio have spoken. A prophecy has been pronounced, of dark days and an evil that will swallow the universe. All-new Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Voodoo is unused to operating on such a level. But he perseveres - and using a tip from Stephen Strange, he manages to lock the Dread Dormammu into a sub-dimension of his massive realm, and trap him with the Barrier Crows of Legba.
Returning to his home in New Orleans, Doctor Voodoo is exhausted but survives the trip. He is greeted by his predecessor, Stephen Strange, and the ghost of his brother Daniel. Strange notes that Drumm has not slept in a week, but Voodoo has something to show him. Behind the Phantom Wall formed by the Lost Spirits of Shuma-Gorath, Doctor Voodoo has collected the Scying Stones of Chthon, mentioned in the dreaded Darkhold. Strange says he would never have used such dark magics, but Doctor Voodoo points out that he is no longer the Sorcerer Supreme.
Strange acquiesces, and departs. Voodoo, despiute not spleeping in a week, must depart for his other duty: he is the doctor at a free clinic in New Orleans. The nurse, Alexis, is angry at Doctor Voodoo for something that happened that previous night. However, she directs him to a man who booked himself in euight hours ago and waited for the Doctor.
As soon as the nurse leaves, however, the man reveals that he has been possessed by the Loa Marinette-Bwa-Chech. The Loa boasts that she killed a dozen children since Voodoo chose the Vishanti's prophecy over the underpriveleged of New Orleans. Doctor Voodoo summons his accroutements, but he is ambushed by Doctor Doom.
As a master magic user, Doom has spent years lusting after the power of the Eye of Agamotto. Now, with an untried Sorcerer Supreme, he is siezing his chance, and means to have the Eye. Doom tries to undermine Voodoo, calling him the harbinger of the Vishanti's prophecied darkness. As Doom cuts loose with his armor, Voodoo teleports the two of them away, leaving a wrecked clinic in their wake.
On a far world, the two materialize. Doom interfered with the spell, taking them to a world inhabited by Een'gawori slugs that eat magic, and no loas exist to aid Doctor Voodoo. After trying to undermine Doctor Voodoo yet again, Doom asks him for the Eye, "for the good of all". However, Doctor Voodoo pushes the two of them of off a cliff.
The two sorcerers fall across the everdimensions, past beings and entities of incalculable power. Rime stetches like rubber, but Doctor Voodoo maintains his grip on the Eye. Eventually, they land on a dark shore by a dark castle. An enraged Doctor Doom resorts to physical force to beat Doctor Voodoo, and claims the Eye. However, the Eye shows him... something. Doctor Doom returns the Eye to Doctor Voodoo and proclaims the device cursed, before vanishing to his homeland. Leaving Doctor Voodoo to ask - what did Doom see?
