How did Doctor Strange lost Sorcerer Supreme?

Strange lost the title of “Sorcerer Supreme” in issues #48-49 (Dec. 1992 – Jan. 1993) when he refused to fight a war on behalf of the Vishanti, the mystical entities that empower his spells. During this time the series became part of the “Midnight Sons” group of Marvel’s supernatural comics.

Why did Dr Strange lose his powers?

Dr. Stephen Strange, M.D., a.k.a. Doctor Strange, was the Sorcerer Supreme for Earth-616. Strange was once a brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon, until a car accident crippled his hands.

Could Doctor Strange have defeated Thanos?

Strange was able to hold his own with just the Eye of Agamotto and Time Stone on his side, while Thanos had four Infinity Stones at that point. But, Strange also knew that he wouldn’t be able to defeat him in that moment to ensure that the one future out of 14,000,605 possible outcomes would happen.

Did Doctor Strange ever try to use the time stone?

The most obvious comes from those 14 million futures Doctor Strange saw; it’s entirely possible that he did attempt to use the Time Stone in one or more of them, only for it to not succeed in ultimately stopping Thanos. Indeed, Dormammu was from the Dark Dimension, an alternate world that is removed from any conventional understanding of time.

What exactly was Doctor Strange doing in Infinity War?

Admittedly, there is a lot of debate over what exactly Doctor Strange was doing in Infinity War – after seeing 14,000,605 futures, he decided to give Thanos the Time Stone, enabling him to ultimately kill half the universe – but this one aspect seems a cut-and-dry oversight. Even Thanos himself questions it during their fight.

Why can’t Dr Strange use a portal to cut off Thanos’s hand?

There’s a quite likely reason why he couldn’t use a portal to cut Thanos’s hand off. He had 5 infinity stones, including the space stone which can manipulate portals with far more elacrity than Dr Strange can. My guess is, unless you caught him totally off guard, he’d just use the space stone to stop the portal from closing.
