    Default Which characters could do Classic Strange's job?

    They gotta protect the realm by any and all means necessary. That means tech instead of magic, if they need to, since at a high enough level whats the differ3nce?

    Aw, I was hoping to find out how good Classic Strange was as a surgeon before he became a wizard.

    I think this was "What if Dr Doom became sorcerer supreme?"

    Not many. Doom might get away with it due to having decent magic (and thus being CAPABLE of figuring out when there's a problem) and using his tech to back up the magic. But it's a full-time job, and he'd have to give up his villainy.

    I'm having problems seeing Stark managing alone.

    Outside of the MU, Dr.Fate is an obvious answer. The Kent Nelson or Nabu version.

    Kent Nelson Fate might just say "Earth is attacked FAR too often, Imma chuck it into the sun" and be done with it.

    You can't argue with logic like that. If there is no Earth, it'll never be attacked.

    Quasar was pretty powerful and resourceful, but I don't like his odds against Dormammu.

    I wanna ask are they just suddenly handed the cloak and slippers with a note saying "It's your problem now! -Dr. S" or do they get the same training that Stephen did?

    Although in Stark's defense, I will point out that one thing he has over guys like say, Reed Richards, is that he's flexible enough to work with magic.

    Well neither do I - I’m just saying he was Protector of the Universe, which is basically what the thread was asking.
