Read full description of the books:
Season One stuff was supposed to give readers a fresh take on the origins of certain Marvel characters and/or teams. Sometimes it worked well ( X-Men: Season One), sometimes it didn't ( Spider-Man: Season One).
This one was ok.
Strange's origin (narcissistic surgeon, car accident, ruined hands, empty bank account, no hope, hello...Ancient One!) was basically told in a couple of pages with no dialogue. It's only once he shows up on the mountaintop that this story begins.
The opening at the temple is almost exactly like the original origin, where Mordo starts off by trying to convince Stephen to side with him against the Ancient One, Strange saying no, and Mordo casting a spell on him so that he can't tell anyone what he saw Mordo doing. With no way (he believes) to help the master, he decides to stay and train so that he might be able to protect the old man. And, just like the original tale, the Ancient One then removes the spell, tells Stephen that he already knew what Mordo was doing and that Strange has proven he is worthy to learn magic.
Ok, at this point, it veers off script and starts telling the story of Wong and Strange's friendship. Except they aren't friends. In fact, they sorta hate each other's guts.
The back and forth between these two was the highlight for me. It had a fun I hate you but someday we'll be best buds-vibe that I enjoyed quite a bit.
I'm not sure that anything else about the story was all that great, though.
The idea was that Strange had all the talent & Wong had all the heart, but neither of them could do shit magic-wise. Wong thought Strange was evil, and Strange thought Wong was a dick.
But unless they learn to work together, they'll never beat the bad guy!
Pretty cliche, but I could live with it.
There was some girl (and I have no idea if she's old character or someone new) that they were trying to help. I think maybe she was supposed to be a shared love interest to add more tension between them or something? Not sure. She didn't make or break it for me either way.
This really didn't impress me, but if you're looking for more Doctor Strange this might be something you would enjoy. I'd suggest getting it from a library or using a Marvel Unlimited account to read it, though. Definitely not worth buying, unless you're a HUGE Strange fan.
