Little is detailed about Stephen’s life before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149, however it can be presumed that it followed much the same path as Doctor Strange of Earth-616.

Presumably, Dr. Strange receives a call from Nick Fury to join the resistance aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, while in his Sanctum Sanctorum, and leaves to join them.

With the extremely varied bunch all assembled on the Helicarrier, Nick explained how serious he believed the situation to be; calling it the end of the world. He also explained that whatever the histories of those assembled, they are all on the same side.[1]

It can also be assumed that he was part of the team sent back down to the surface to battle the zombies, unsuccessfully, it would seem as when Beast and Mister Fantastic found a sizeable stash of meat in Latveria and the surrounding area, a zombified Strange and a huge horde zombies headed off to lay siege to Castle Doomstadt.[2]

Unable to gain access to the fortress, Strange was attacked by the re-animated corpses of the Deadite Legion, though apparently this was more of an inconvenience than anything else, as he returned to New York seemingly none the worse for wear (other than a touch of zombification, obviously).

In New York, Strange joined up with a small group of zombies including Spider-Man. When Spider-Man caught Ultimate Reed Richards in his webbing, as the young Mr. Fantastic was lost in the ruined city. Unfortunately, for them, Reed got away when Magneto drops hundreds of cars on the massed zombie horde.[3]

Strange was later seen as part of Kingpin's undead alliance and as a result of Magneto's wrath, could only perform two spells, one of which allowed viewers to see into other universes, which became an essential tools to Kingpin's plans, but they were stopped by the Machine Man from the Mainstream Marvel Universe.[4]

After being buried, Dr. Strange was seemingly brain-damaged and was only capable of casting two spells.




  • Curiously, as the Eye of Agamotto can only be worn by a pure person in the Earth-616 reality, it appears such restrictions do not apply to the infected reality, as Strange is seen wearing it at his every appearance (however, more likely the writers for the Zombie series lacked such subtle knowledge or did not deem it significant, or the Eye has simply remained with Strange because it cannot find a worthy host after everyone else in this world has been eaten or infected).


  • In Black Panther (Vol. 4) #30, the zombie Galacti mentioned that they ate Doctor Strange. Obviously, this is an error, since Dr. Strange was buried under a pile of cars by Magneto and returned in Marvel Zombies 3 instead of being eaten by the zombie galacti.
