Doctor Strange’s All-Knowing Powers And Abilities Explained

He is tasked with protecting Earth from magical threats and powerful beings as Sorcerer Supreme. Take, for example, the character Dormammu from his 2016 film “Doctor Strange.” In his native Dark Dimension, he is a being of unfathomable power, capable of absolute mastery of existence. When he summons Doctor Strange with the missing pages of the Book of Cagliostro, Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) defeats the Destroyer of Worlds.

To be fair, the Time Stone was held by the Eye of Agamotto, but perhaps that is a better way of putting it. Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), who is half Celestial, could not wield the Power Stone without the assistance of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), and Rocket (Bradley Cooper).

Like the late Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), aka Iron Man, we’ve often wondered what Doctor Strange’s job entails aside from making balloon animals. Strange claims he’s doing it to protect reality, which begs the question of how he’s capable of such a monumental task. After much deliberation, we’ve compiled a list of everything we’ve seen him do in the MCU. This page explains Doctor Strange’s abilities and powers in detail.

A type of astral projection is astral projection.

One of the first acts of magic Stephen Strange witnesses is the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) pushing his astral form out of his physical body at Kamar-Taj. He initially believes he has been drugged and inquires of his host about the tea he had just consumed, assuming it contained a hallucinogen such as the mushroom psilocybin. She assures him that it’s just honey in his tea before whisking him away on an incredible, mind-bending journey — and then kicking him out on his buttocks.

Doctor Strange uses astral projection to expand his knowledge in an unusual way during his training

He reads the ancient tomes at his disposal while his physical form sleeps. Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is surprised by the “litany of spells” he was able to learn in order to use the Eye of Agamotto. Strange’s explanation is that he has a photographic memory, which allows him to hold both an MD and a PhD at the same time. We’re guessing that his mind working while his body rests also played a role. Stephen wasn’t just studying in his astral form, of course. In the hospital’s astral plane, he fought one of Kaecilius’ disciples, popping in and out to give Dr. Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) instructions — and scaring the bejeezus out of her — as she worked to save his life.
