Has Aaron ever explained why Strange isn't using the Eye of Agamotto anymore now that magic has been building back up to its former levels? He's used it to give the whole Darkforce Dimension a rather explosive hissyfit in the past.

Didn't Aggamatto turn out to be evil, or something akin to that?

Yeah, or at least selfish and unconcerned with collateral damage during Bendis' New Avengers Run. But the Eye's power apparently worked separately from his (hence his trying to reclaim it), and Strange did reference having it after the Secret Wars reboot. It seems to draw on ambient magic energy rather than having a direct pipeline to Agamotto himself—it stopped working during the recent Death of Magic storyline, and way back in an old Strange Tales story it grew "sleepy" after being overused in too short a time.

I'm also not clear about whether Agamotto, Oshtur, and Hoggoth were rebooted along with the physical Multiverse or if they occupied a higher plane unaffected by the Beyonders. My vote would be for the latter, but Marvel writers haven't weighed in yet.
