This is the full context of the death of the girl in the "MCU synergy" Doctor Strange post (also this comic is more than a month old)... was MCU Mordo pathetic evil? My first post. Sorry, if I made mistakes.

They probably brought him in because of the film, but the film's Mordo is so different that they barely share more than a name. He wasn't even a villain until after the credits. The main villain Kaecillius was much more like this.

The Orb is one of Jason Aaron's favorites, he brought up out of obscurity during Original Sin, so I wasn't surprised. I thought nightmare has been used quite a bit though, I wouldn't call him old.

Aaron used Master Pandemonium as part of the faculty for his terrible Hell fire Academy

Well, Nightmare was Dr. Strange's first published villain, and has recurred periodically for over 50 years. So as old as they come, but not exactly obscure.

He's also my #1 suspect for the hidden enemy that's chained Eternity in Al Ewing's current books, since he's tried that on more than one occasion before (and actually succeeded once in the mid 70s!), and there's a motif of various people seeing hints of what's happening in their dreams.

Mordo is one more character whose movie incarnation is much better than the original inspiration. Even Caecilius had better motivations than traditional Mordo.

Yeah, comics Mordo is about as one-dimensional and irredeemable as they come (though J. M. DeMatteis actually managed to do a halfway convincing job of it in the mid 90s, which has since been undone—along with Mordo's death by cancer).

yeah, much as I loved Mordo in the movie, I can't seem to find any of the traits I loved in the movie version, in the comics character.

I'm getting a very Krang and Shredder vibe from this.
