"Tony doesn't even know there's a problem," is not a valid argument against informing Tony that there's a problem, Doc.

Makes me wonder if he could call on the Asgardians or another otherworldly pantheon for help, The world isn't just "The Avengers" and "Everybody Else", Doc. (Despite what Marvel Films would tell us).

Especially since the Empirikul are a threat specifically geared towards fighting Magic. ...Finding the world's last few magical weapons to fight them isn't a solution, Doc, it's fighting fire with gasoline.

Meanwhile, if you got Tony, who I will remind you is your Awesome Facial Hair Bro, you've got a Science-based hero to fight the Science-based villains, which is something that will most certainly take the Empirikul by surprise.

And once again I am reminded that Elizabeth Twoyoungmen is cursed with the magical Talisman and an incredibly awkward outfit. Though I didn't recall her having it painted on.

Is there any way we can harness the magic holding her outfit together?

"We need to find any remaining bits of magick."
"LOOK BEHIND YOU, DOC!"

I... really don't understand this. The Avengers call you in for help *ALL THE TIME*. When some super scientists are DEVOURING ALL MAGIC don't you call in all your markers and call in the superheroes? I mean, you're using bows and arrows against them? Shouldn't you have Hawkeye doing that for you?

Like... I appreciate that they're trying to make this a story about the magic community of the Marvel U, but there's 'cool story' and there's 'this makes no freaking sense whatosever'.

There's a difference between "Darn. The Avengers and/or Fantastic Four are doing something else and can't help me" and "I must handle this myself!"

One looks like Strange wants to get backup and can't because of plot conveience, and the other makes him look like an arrogant fool. Or that he feels this is all his fault and he has to fix it. So, arrogant fool with a conscience.

Has this series ever once described how the Empirikul is destroying magic? From what I'm seeing on the pages that have been posted here, the series is treating 'magic' as if it is some sort of quantifiable 'magic particle' substance that exists in the material world that magic users tap into and are otherwise powerless without. I suppose that's one way of turning magic users into just another type of superhero, but it's not how magic ever worked before in the MU. Likewise, all this new nonsense about Strange being unable to eat real food as a 'price' of magic when he's been shown eating and drinking normal food countless times in the past. This entire storyline seems like it's being written to be super-dramatic but without any actual substance to back it up.

If this really is nothing more than some alien technology, then it makes no sense for Strange not to ask Stark, the Asgardians, Doom, etc. for help. That's like sitting in a sinking boat with a perfectly good working radio and phone and internet connection and a set of flares but not asking anyone to come and help you because...why? Because the author of the story said so.

I wasn't familiar with Aaron as a writer before, but this series has give me a bad first impression.

Strange not being able to eat

Aaron presented this whole 'not being able to eat real food' thing as happening early on into Strange's training, not as a much later progression of him being Sorcerer Supreme for a many years. This contradicts all of Strange's previous stories. I think that he did it because Marvel wanted to have an easy way to show the cost of performing magic. I think it's ridiculous. I hope that the next writer to come along ignores it.
