Strange attacked Loki (not even Loki knows why, Strange overreacting is a colossal understatement), Zelma got fed up with their silly fighting and blocked their magic for some minutes. Unfortunately Loki is still a god and super strong so he used the opportunity to make Strange open the sealed door: VOID!

Oh, Stephen and Loki, no.

Couldn't Stephen just have -told- Loki what was in there, and prevented anything from happening? I mean seriously. "Dude, behind that door is some heinously evil shit. Don't open it. It killed you last time."

I think the point specifically is that Strange does NONE of the rational things whatsoever. He's shifted from unlucky antagonist to the villain of the story now with all that crap he's been doing and all the things he's been justifying.

Most of this arc is Strange reacting, and reacting violently, from gut feelings (and preconceptions), when he should just talk to people.

Conversely he is also trying to talk to people (Zelma), who don't want to talk with him because of his previous actions.

because he chose to act rather than talk last time? oh Stephen...

I feel like the mystical Health and Safety department could have solved the whole problem with a label on the door stating: "Caution: Contains supervillain known as The Void".

That might just be me.

I must admit I am getting tired of the current trend in fiction, not just comic books but movies and tv shows of all genres, which derive their conflict from characters not having a simple conversation. If your big twist can be prevented by a single line of dialogue, then its not that great. Goes double for those properties that have ludicrously stilted and convoluted conversations so that that single line of dialogue can be avoided.

Playing Devil's Advocate, Loki was the God of Evil for like 99% of his career, and it's only very recently in Marvel history that he has gone anti-hero. Presumably, one might not want to tell him about a colossal source of supernatural evil power for the same reason one might not want to tell Joker. Assuming Strange is even aware of Loki's Heel-Face Turn, he might assume it's just a bluff. Especially considered that Loki has made similar bluffs in the past (repeatedly), and planned his own death to his own advantage so it's not like he'd necessarily want to avoid something that killed him.

But, yeah. Talking things out. It is good. Heroes should try doing that for once.

Well, that's along the lines of what tends to happen when the trickster pushes the big red button, opens the sealed whatever... They would still do it again given a chance, that's kind of the point of the archetype.

I thought Sentry+Void were dead. Or was it just a lovely dream?

Some really lovely bits in here. I enjoyed it hugely. Especially how Strange gets out of paying the price for his magic (but why did he need the demigod upgrade then?) and the "But...hes still a God" bit.

Its sort of a story where the old SS goes insane and becomes the new SS first major foe.

I kind of feel Loki is a bit out of character too, though. Of course, his character veers wildly anyway. But I thought one more attempt to talk things out with Strange and not punch things would be in character with his trying to do a good job.

Oh, and I wish we could have gotten all these villains trying to be heroes at the same time, and teaming up a bit.

"Its sort of a story where the old SS goes insane and becomes the new SS first major foe. "

The problem with that is that the "old SS" is Stephen Strange, the character who is going to be Sorcerer Supreme again within 18 months. They'll have to sweep this nonsensical characterization under the rug in the name of the status quo.

In 1 month. There is no mention in the solicits of Loki still being Sorcerer Supreme by March so either Strange gets the title back in the next issue or they reach some kind of a sharing agreement.

Cumberbatch and Hiddleston versions. I’m sure the fanfic and fanart is out there.
