SUPER OTTO MAGIC CONTINUES!
Doctor Strange and Superior Spider-Man have to team up to save Otto's new love from a horrific possession courtesy of Master Pandemonium.

"Then, Devin Grayson spins a tale of magic and its consequences as Doctor Strange casts a spell that will cost him dearly- and devastate the Asgardian pantheon!"

Marvel has nothing that doesn't diminish Doctor Strange- weakening his abilities, losing the Sorcerer Supreme mantle, the Sanctum's objects getting taken or drained, spells going wrong- and the "magic has its price/costs" thing has run its course.

WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
The Dark Elf King Malekith and his allies have conquered Earth! At least, they THINK they have - and they've divided the spoils accordingly, with the Enchantress raising an army of the dead and staking her claim on South America. But if the Enchantress is expecting a royal welcome, she's forgotten what she's dealing with - Earth isn't going down without a fight. And as Captain Marvel leads DOCTOR STRANGE and BLACK WIDOW into the land of the dead, nothing about this mission will be what our heroes expect.

WAR OF THE REALMS TIE-IN!
Captain Marvel's got a magical right hook - but what happens when she loses her mighty fists? When a powerful spell from the Enchantress causes Carol and DOCTOR STRANGE to body-swap, everything about their mission is called into question. What was once a covert ops mission with BLACK WIDOW to take down the Enchantress and her "Land of the Dead" is now a comedy of errors - casting spells wasn't exactly covered in Carol's military training. But Carol Danvers is more than her powers, and the Enchantress is about to discover that the hard way.
