“This version of Doctor strange found magic after the death of his true love which led him down a darker path with dark and dangerous magic in an attempt to change his past.
What exactly this darker path entails is unknown, but it sounds like a very tragic origin for Strange. The mention of strongly changing his past suggests that he will always find himself in possession of Agamotto’s Eye, no doubt using the magic it contains to bring back his “true love”, which is presumably Christine Palmer, played in Rachel McAdams movie. .
In his more traditional origin story, Doctor Strange begins as a selfish, arrogant neurosurgeon, who learns humility and responsibility after a terrible accident leads him into the world of magic and witchcraft. This alternative take in What if …? will likely find Doctor Strange never learning this lesson, his true love possibly dying in the same accident, so Strange’s journey is about selfishly changing the past rather than slowly revealing his inner hero.
