Strange is a six-part American comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics under their Marvel Knights imprint. Written by J. Michael Straczynski and Samm Barnes, with artwork by Brandon Peterson, Strange is a re-imagining of Doctor Strange's origin.


While in Tibet, a medical student named Stephen Strange meets a sickly, apparently mute young man named Wong. He later meets an old man while going to a monastery called "the Garden of Fountains", who asks him why he wants to become a doctor. Later, he hears the young man named Wong start talking after Stephen gives him a watch, hoping he will return later in life. Three years later, at his graduation party, one of Stephen's college professors who believes he would be more than a "medical profession's version of a pimp" is killed in an automobile incident. Three years after that, Stephen is working in plastic surgery in New York but is injured in a skiing accident.[1]

Stephen loses the full ability to use his hands after the accident and starts looking for a surgeon who can fix his hands, but finds no one who can help.[2]
