Occult Lore



Karl Mordo acquired an interest in the occult from his maternal grandfather, Viscout Crowler, at an early age. When he became an adult, Mordo sought out the mystic master known as the Ancient One in Tibet. The Ancient One recognized that Mordo had the innate ability to become a sorcerer of great power, but that Mordo was motivated solely by lust for power. The Ancient One decided to accept Mordo as a disciple in order to keep watch over him.

While still living at his mentor’s palace, Mordo plotted to destroy the Ancient One. Mordo’s schemes were overheard by the Ancient One’s guest, Dr. Stephen Strange, a jaded physician. Mordo placed mystical restraints on Strange that prevented him from telling the Ancient One of his plans. Strange, however, managed to escape by becoming the Ancient One’s disciple, who was aware of Mordo’s plans all along. Soon after, Mordo left the Ancient One and Strange.

Mordo gathered more and more mystical knowledge over the years, and remained a bitter foe of Strange, now Sorcerer Supreme of the Earth dimension. As such, the two have clashed repeatedly over the years. At one point, Mordo served the extradimensional entity known as Dormammu, seeking to amass more power for himself., although Dormammu was defeated by Strange.

Mordo remains obsessed with destroying Strange.
