Origin and Early Years
During the invasion of Earth by Thanos and his forces, Ebony Maw of the Black Order infiltrated Strange's mind, and had him wear and feed the Wings of Needless Sorrow, while being in an illusion of himself being at peace in the Fields of Enlightenment (Kaalu tried to reach Strange, but was unable to). Strange and Ebony Maw finally appeared in New York City with the Wings, and enabled Shuma-Gorath's manifestation.
Their purpose seems to be the efficient absorption and redirection of various energies.
On the downside, close proximity to the Wings seems to cause feelings of sadness, insecurity, and feeling that nothing matters.
Extensive periods of exposure can lead to despair, suicide, and senseless acts, such as unmotivated slaughters of loved ones.
