Doctor Stephen Strange is the Sorcerer Supreme.
In order to determine what to do with the Infinity Gems in the Avengers' possession, Black Widow convinces them to turn to Doctor Strange for help since she had a vision that Doctor Strange wouldn't be tempted by the powers of the Infinity Gems. Doctor Strange tells the Avengers that he has been forewarned about the Infinity Gems' powers which are causing danger to reality and even affecting the mystic realms. When Dormammu and the Mindless Ones emerge from the portal, Doctor Strange helps the Avengers fight them until Black Widow uses the powers of the Infinity Gems to send Dormammu and the Mindless Ones back to the Dark Dimension. After Black Widow broke free from the Infinity Gems' influence, Doctor Strange was present when Thanos arrived and claimed all the Infinity Gems which he places in his Infinity Gauntlet before leaving.
Doctor Strange is one of the potential Avengers recruits. Iron Man located him via J.A.R.V.I.S. in New York.
