If you are not aware of your Marvel Comics history, you may not know who is clea. The sorceress is an inhabitant of the Dark Dimension, the realm of Dread Dormammu that we saw in the first Doctor Strange movie. In fact, she is also the niece of Dormammu, daughter of Orini, the prince of the Dark Dimension, and Umar, Dormammu’s sister. Throughout her long comic history, she has been Strange’s student, a love interest for the Doctor, his wife/his ex-wife, and even the Sorcerer Supreme of her home dimension.
Actually in the comicsClea is Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme, following the recent death of Stephen Strange. The book is still called “Stranger”, since her last name is also Stranger by marriage, and she has taken the Eye of Agamotto and the Cloak of Levitation to protect our kingdom.
Her inclusion in the MCU hints that the third film will spend more time in the Dark Dimension, as Clea seemingly tries to free her home from her uncle. She also hints at a possible romance for the duo, considering Strange’s connection to Rachel McAdams’ Christine Palmer has been left behind. Finally, her brief mention of forays into reality almost definitely points to Secret Wars as the next big story in the MCU.
If you have already seen Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, you may have questions about the ending or where we could see the illuminati below. the cast too talked about working with director Sam Raimiwho delivered a film that could have it was a little rough with that PG-13 rating. And if you’ve seen the last movie, then all that’s left is to wait for the next one. Millisecond. Wonderful show on Disney+.
