Strange Tales 119

Stop! Thief! Dr. Strange will save you. He'll leave the beatdown to Spider-Man

I know I'm supposed to be talking about Dr. Strange but look at that Human Torch cover That is one of the worst-named villains ever. The Rabble Rouser! Lol!

This story involves a journey into another dimension, and if you know Steve Ditko's crazy art, you know that place is going to look wild - and it is.

There is a subtle message in this tale about how Dr. Strange relates to street crime. The kind of crime that would have Spider-Man or Daredevil coming in with their fists. Dr. Strange almost ignores crime, it's almost a non-issue to him. His powers place him in no danger from it at all but, more importantly, his place as a mystic protector has him looking at things differently. To Dr. Strange the world is not divided into criminals and innocents, its divided into mankind and magical threats. His attitude to the criminals in this issue bear witness to that.
