Doctor Strange was one of the eight sorcerers, along with half a dozen non-magic superheros, that met in the basement of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in an attempt to discover a method to close the portal to Limbo and stop the Demons invasion. However, the group was found by a corrupted Hulk and Wolverine and several of the heroes were killed. S'ym himself arrived and the sorcerers attempted to kill him with magic, but he used the Soulsword to absorb the magic and shoot it back at them. The sorcerers were saved by Thor, who sacrificed himself to allow others time to escape. The group escaped and Doctor Strange sensed a force the planet strong enough to defeat the demons. Teleporting to it, he found Rachel Summers transformed in a mannequin and restored her form. He realized that the Phoenix Force could be used to purge the planet of demons. S'ym eventually found the remaining heroes and attempted to attack them, but was held back long enough for Doctor Strange to help Rachel Summers to call the Phoenix Force to Earth. Madelyne and Rachel fought for control of the Phoenix Force with Madelyne betraying S'ym so she could rule the world. Meanwhile, fighting with the others continued with Baron Mordo seemingly switching sides until S'ym was weakend enough for Mordo to strike a killing blow. However, enough of his spirit survived to possession the adamantium skeleton of the recently deceased Wolverine and used it to killed Pryor, allowing Rachel to take control of the the Phoenix Force and incinerated S'ym completely. The Phoenix Force then spread out and purged the planet of demons and returned it a primordial state and was present when Alicia Masters gave birth to her son.[1]


Seemingly those of Stephen Strange of Earth-616.
