Doctor Stephen Strange - The Avengers

Dr. Stephen Strange from The Avengers played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

Dr. Stephen Strange is a fictional male Human in the The Avengers comic series who was played on screen by Benedict Cumberbatch. Doctor Stephen Strange was a brilliant but arrogant surgeon but after a car accident, he no longer had total control of his fingers which he needed to do precision surgery. Stephen upped and went out to Kamar-Taj in the Himalayas to look for the Ancient One to learn new skills.

The Ancient One would go on to teach Strange the ability to use magic. In the film, the Ancient One was played by Tilda Swinton, a British Actress. In the comics, the character was a male character which upset a few purists of the character.

After the Ancient One has managed to train up Doctor Strange, the Ancient One dies leaving Strange to carry on with defeating Kaecilius, a warlock who has decided to challenge the Ancient One and bring doom. The Ancient One makes a special appearance in Endgame when Bruce Banner is trying to obtain one of the stones from the past.

Strange's red cape has a mind of its own and can act independently of Strange which can come in handy when facing off against other magicians. In addition to the cape, he has the Eye of Agamotto which provides his power. The eye is actually the Infinity Stone of Time. The eye is one of the Infinity Stones that Thanos needs in order to wipe out half of all life in the universe. The stone is able to affect time allowing him to move back and forwards to achieve his aims.

In the first appearance, strange does not work along, he is assisted by Baron Mordo. At the end of the Strange film, it is revealed or should that be implied that Baron Mordo will be the next antagonist of Strange's excluding the Infinity Wars.

Stephen Strange is able to open wormhole portals with his hands and step through. The portals can be on Earth or elsewhere in the Multiverse.

Infinity Wars / Endgame

When Thanos obtains the first stone in Infinity Wars, Bruce Banner returns to Earth and crashes into Strange's house. After persuading Strange to help, both Strange and Hulk go to Tony Stark for his help. Tony Stark isn't best pleased to see them.

Doctor Strange was one of the unlucky random in the universe who would be turned to dust by Thanos clicking his fingers. Strange returns to help The Avengers fight at the end of the movie.

When Bruce Banner uses the glove to restore people, it is Doctor Strange who opens dozens of Portals to bring everyone to the final fight against Thanos. The final fight occurs in an area that was once the base of operations for the Avengers before Thanos arrived and destroyed the area.
