The Sorcerer Supreme suffers Secret Empire! New York City is under attack by dark forces, and only Doctor Strange has a shot at saving it - but it's quite a long shot! And to have any hope, Strange must ally himself with some unsavory people. No, not Spider-Woman - though the Doctor is recruiting her, too. We're talking about Wilson Fisk, A.K.A. the Kingpin. Together, they'll take the fight to the person running New York City...Baron Mordo! But e...

Reviews Doctor Strange, Vol. 5
- Read these individually as they were coming out.
- Locked up in Manhattan during Secret Empire Doc Strange teams up with an improbable bunch (Spider-Woman? Wilson Fisk?? Ben Urich???) to defeat Mordo, appointed warden of the island by Hydra. On this feeble premise Hopeless weaves a loose AD&D thread resolved with a mere sleight of hand. Disappointing.
- [Read as single issues]Secret Empire comes to town, and Doctor Strange finds himself trapped in the Darkforce Dimension-infested New York. But don't worry, he has help in the form of Spider-Woman, the Kingpin, and...Ben Urich? Okay, maybe this isn't going to go quite as well.This volume is kind of a placeholder for the series between larger creative teams. Jason Aaron's run just finished, and Donny Cates' doesn't start until volume 6, so we get t...
- Secret Empire shows us NYC under the rule of Hydra. Doctor Strange teams up with ...some people to take down Mordo, Captain America's lackey. I have nothing to really say about this volume. It was sloppily done and hard to follow. After the events of Mr. Misery, I was expecting a followup to that story-line. Instead, I get a pieced together plot about Hydra taking over NYC. The art was harsh and wasn't clean. The "conflict" was resolved with no r...
- New York is under a very scar, dark magic bubble, and Doctor Strange has a lot less magic than he's used to not having as Baron Mordo has taken over his house. Most of the volume is a blast following Strange, Spiderwoman, and Wilson Fisk working together. Fun overall as usual but there's a wider thing happening that I'm not familiar with so that puts a damper on things. Also the other two stories are a bit blah.
- I thoroughly enjoyed this volume. While I fundamentally don't like the whole "Captain America, Sleeper Hydra Agent" story line, that particular plot point wasn't the focus of this book. Sure, Cap was there, but this was really Doctor Strange v. Baron Mordo. And that conflict was perfectly done. Mordo was a great villain: arrogant and calm with even a few witty quips... that is until it came down the fight he'd been waiting for. Then he was the ep...
- Doctor Strange's contribution to the Secret Empire event is different from all the others in that it takes place in NYC, where the Darkforce has enclosed the city in a dome. Teaming up with Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Ben Urich and Wilson Fisk, Strange takes on all the evil forces, as well as the man who has taken over the Sanctum Santorum: Baron Mordo. These issues are amazing with action sequences and complex magical trickery. Baron Mordo.... you'...
- I was a little leery heading into this volume. I knew the whole Secret Empire arc was winding it's way through the Marvel universe. Normally these tie-ins to larger arcs aren't handled very well, BUT this one was so good! It integrated both where Doctor Strange had been with the larger plot. Granted it does just drop you in, but like say a Doctor Who episode you figure out what happened as the story goes along. Just a great volume!
- This is a bit of a stopgap volume but still really enjoyable. Dennis Hopeless and John Barber do a good job of continuing the tone of the modern Doctor Strange from Jason Aaron's excellent run with some light stories. There's also the bonus of a fun appearance from Spider-Woman, most recently written by Hopeless.
- Even with the help from a multitude of different superheroes (Captain America to Daredevil, Spider-Woman to Iron Fist), the Doctor Strange series has become a complete disappointment. Goodbye, Stephen.
- Always GreatNot as much story in this volume but still is a great collection of stories by the amazing Doctor Strange!
- I liked seeing him working with Daredevil and such. Fun seeing his part of the Captain America fallout!
- Good, but felt like it lost a little of its magic (ha).
- probably would have made more sense if I was reading Secret Empire instead of just Doctor Strange
- Překvapivě nešlo vůbec o takovou ztrátu času, jak jsem čekala. Kresba stále skvělá a hlavně poslední dvě čísla (ta co neměla už nic společeného se Secret Empire) byla hodně dobrá.
- 3.5Dr. Strange shows growth and fights Secret Empire with not a lot of magic.
