Amazing Spider-Man Annual # 2 (Vol 1) (1965) “The Wondrous World of Dr. Strange” Writer- Stan Lee Penciler- Steve Ditko Inker- Steve Ditko Letterer-Sam Rosen Editor- Stan Lee In today’s episode, we will cover the issue that saw the webhead and sorcerer supreme meet in the comics for the first time. It had begun in an original short story written for Amazing Spider-Man Annual # 2. The two do battle as the henchmen bring Spider-Man back to Earth. Xandu regains control of the Wand of Watoomb and uses it against Dr. Strange, who, realizing he’s overpowered by the Wand, leaves his physical form and uses his ectoplasmic spirit to aid Spider-Man. At Strange’s suggestion, Spider-Man grabs an electric wire and shorts out the two henchmen’s hypnosis. Dr Strange returns to his physical form and fights alongside Spider-Man, who trips Xandu with his webbing and retrieves the Wand. The Wand is then drained of its mystic power by Dr Strange, who also wipes the memory – and thus the evil intentions – of Xandu.
