Synopsis for "The Challenge of Loki!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Strange Tales #123.

In order to get control of Thor's hammer, Loki tricks Doctor Strange into believing that Loki is a helpless prisoner of the "evil" Thor, and the only way to free him is by gaining control of Thor's hammer. Using a spell to draw Thor's hammer to him, Loki reveals his ruse before the hammer can get to them. Canceling the spell and having Thor track its path to his Sanctum, Doctor Strange attempts to fight off Loki. Loki proves to be more adept at magic than Strange; however, Loki is forced to retreat when he sees that Thor is on his way. With Loki gone, Thor continues on his merry way, unaware of the plot against him that almost succeeded.

Strange Tales #124.

While out in his astral form, Doctor Strange spots a mysterious spectral woman who is locked in a trance. Taking her back to his Sanctum and casting a protection spell, Strange visits the Ancient One, who uses a magic candle to send Strange to the mystery woman's point of origin.

Ending up in the ancient past, Doctor Strange battles the mystic named Zota, who is responsible for the woman's predicament. Defeating Zota and returning to his own time, Strange conjures a spell that frees the mystery spirit, who turns out to be Cleopatra.
