Synopsis for "Duel With The Dread Dormammu!"
While waiting for his duel against Dormammu, Clea shows Doctor Strange around the Dark Dimension, including the area of the realm which is sealed with a mystic barrier to contain the Mindless Ones. As the duel starts, Dormammu imprisons Clea. The mystical power Dormammu expends during the duel leads to a weakening of the spell keeping the Mindless ones at bay, and they escape. Doctor Strange helps Dormammu reestablish the barrier, and in gratitude, Dormammu agrees to a pledge not to invade the Earth's dimension. Returning to Earth's dimension, Doctor Strange is rewarded by the Ancient One with two new items: A cloak of levitation, and the Eye of Agamotto.
