Family dinner must be awkward for Dormammu, when your niece is married to your greatest enemy. Introduced in Strange Tales #126 (1964) by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, this Lord of the Dark Dimension has been trying to enter into the prime reality for centuries. He was kept at bay for many years, being defeated by the Ancient One. He would soon gain a disciple in the form of Baron Mordo who pushed him to kill the Ancient One. However, the Ancient One was saved by Stephen Strange, who the Ancient One took as his disciple. Dr. Strange would eventually move to New York and would battle Dormammu many times.

Strange would eventually aid Dormammu against the Mindless One and made him promise not to enter Strange’s reality. Dormammu was honored bound to keep this promise but would instead use his human agents like Baron Mordo. He would also battle many other heroes such as the Defenders, Ghost Rider, the X-men, Avengers and many more. He would also team up with many villains like Loki and even traveled to the original GOTG universe. Earth wasn’t the only realm he try to take over, as he would battle the demons of Hell as well as Limbo. He would also try and marry Satana but was beaten to the punch by Asmodeus.

Dormammu is generally considered one of the greatest treats to humanity, alot of the times being the final villain in many story arcs, as well as movies and games. He would receive a number of figures over the years (in various size as he is a size changer). His first figure was part of a SDCC exclusive Box set called the Book of the Vashanti. This figure would later see a repaint/re-release of the first Dr. Strange wave for the first movie. He would later get a regular size figure as part of the “Bring on the Bad Guys” wave.


Classic

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Bring on the Bad Guys ? wave – Dormammu

  • Background:
    • While nowadays Dormammu would change his appearance based on how people perceive him, in the early days, he had a general classic appearance. This is basically an update to his original appearance. As always, it has been drawn differently by different artists.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This figure can be used for many collections, but it should use mainly for your Dr. Strange collection as he is considered one of 3 of the Sorcerer Supreme’s main villains. If you aren’t collection Dr. Strange, then he can be used for Defenders, Avengers, X-men, New Mutants, Spider-man, Ghost Rider and many more.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

Vs Defenders (Vol. 3)

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Dr. Strange Dormammu wave – Dormammu (BAF) OR SDCC exclusive Marvel Legends Book of the Vashanti box set – Dormammu with Astral form Dr. Strange, Dr. Voodoo, Magik and Hela

  • Background:
    • After a while, Dormammu gained a new form. This form has since become his default form and would be adapted into many other medias such as games and movies.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • The reason for getting this is the same as above but get this if you want a more modern version. As for which one to get, I recommend trying to get the standard wave version as it might be easier to obtain as the SDCC one is harder to come by.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.
