Returning to New York, Doctor Strange finds that his Sanctum is occupied by one of Mordo's minions, disguising himself as another minion of Mordo, Doctor Strange gets the drop on his opponent. When he tries to access the Orb of Agamotto, he is shocked to find that it is no longer in its cradle. Detecting Strange's presence, Dormammu infuses Mordo with his mystical might and sends him to battle Strange. While at the lair of the Ancient One, the weakened Ancient one tells his servant that perhaps only Eternity may save him.
Back at Strange's Sanctum, Dormammu takes full control over Mordo and pours all his mystical power into him, allowing him to easily defeat Doctor Strange making Strange black during combat.
The Sinister Space Trap!
- Johnny mentions their recent trip to the Skrull homeworld, this happened in Fantastic Four #37.
- Johnny's spat with Doris here spells the beginning of the end of their relationship as she eventually breaks up with him in Fantastic Four #45.
- In an effort to make him incognito, the Thing is given the pseudonym "Josiah Verpoorten." This is surely a reference to longtime Marvel inker and (later) production manager John Verpoorten.
