I disagree. He pretty much transformed a rich mythology based on DECADES of stories into a poorly written mess.

Tying Strange's power level to his title as Sorcerer Supreme was one thing, and a bit ridiculous. But making the Eye part of it, when he had it for _decades_ before becoming S.S.?

(Leaving aside the fact that there are TWO amulets and the Orb as well)

Turning Agamotto evil and disbanding the Vishanti just to "depower" Stephen?

And let's not even get into the whole "The Eye cannot be simply taken" bit, since that's _precisely_ how Drumm got it. Strange didn't give it to him, it traveled to him via the power of Agamotto. The same being who later tried to take it.

And Bendis WROTE that story.

A while back, I postulated that Bendis based his ideas on Marvel Magic on D&D. Strange is a low-level magic-user, who needs artifacts to get anything done.

That's not the Strange I grew up reading. Never was. Even in his VERY FIRST APPEARANCE, when he had neither the Eye nor the title, he was more competent than Bendis' take.

As for Densders... meh.
