Zombie Dr. Strange


My favorite character in the film is Zombie Doctor Strange. Granted this is still *our* Doctor Strange I’m talking about. This isn’t the brain-munching version of the character from the Marvel Zombies universe. It’s our Doctor Strange temporarily possessing the rotting corpse of an alter universe Doctor Strange that our Doctor Strange buried in *his* universe before he goes universe-hopping, but then when he finds it necessary to return to his universe to stop a Darkhold-possessed Scarlet Witch, and needs a Doctor Strange body to occupy there (in his universe), he takes advantage of there being a conveniently dead one of which to make use. (A little bit of a run-on sentence, but it suffices, I think, to summarize the sitch.)

Zombie Doctor Strange, *this* Zombie Doctor Strange, doesn’t last too long, but long enough to steal the spotlight from non-zombie Doctor Strange, I think. (Which again is sorta impossible since they’re the same character, just in different bodies.) But seeing him sure suggests a neat way to do a Marvel Zombies movie (Disney, PLEASE do a Marvel Zombies movie!) where, instead of having a living human protagonist, you could have a hero zombie. That it would be the Zombie Doctor Strange, i.e. Doctor Strange sending his intellect from his own universe to possess the zombified version of himself in the Marvel Zombies universe, would only make sense.
