Enfolded by a cape formed by a dark mist of sinister creatures, presenting multiple decrepit and skeletal arms, the macabre zombie figure of the sorcerer hero appears, levitating over a base composed of the demonic shadows of condemned souls. Possessing the cadaveric body starting to show signs of decomposition of his counterpart from another universe, Dr. Stephen Strange uses the knowledge of the Darkhold, the Book of the Damned, conceived in Hell’s dimension, to control evil spirits drawn by a forbidden spell, and use them to face the maddened Scarlet Witch. Thus, Iron Studios present their statue “Dead Defender Strange DLX – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – Art Scale 1/10”, inspired by the iconic scene derivative from the second movie of Marvel’s sorcerer supreme.
Iron Studios also bring a regular version of the zombified sorcerer’s statue, with the statue “Dead Defender Strange – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – Art Scale 1/10”, presenting the undead hero without the cape made by the great mist, and revealing himself only with multiple decrepit arms.
Native from another universe, an alternative version of the Sorcerer Supreme known as Defender Strange, tried to help América Chavez, a girl with the ability to travel the Multiverse. Strange realized that her power was too dangerous and tried to take it from her but ended up being killed by a creature summoned by Scarlet Witch to capture Chavez, with the sole purpose of using her powers. In his last breath, he set Chavez free from the creature, and she ran away to another universe, the so-called Earth-616, where she fell in New York City through a portal alongside Strange’s corpse. Saved by Doctor Strange and Wong from this universe, to prove her origin to the heroes, she showed the corpse of Defender Strange, which was then buried by them. After many battles, she was captured and taken to Wundagore Mountain, where she was placed on an altar by Scarlet Witch, with the intention to strip her from her powers. To return to his own universe and save her, Doctor Strange used the zombified corpse of Defender Strange through forbidden spells of the Darkhold book to possess the dead, and face Maximoff, using the spirit of the damned that confronted him.
