"If you didn't build a killer robot or a virtual world, this year would've been much easier for us."
Alphonso Mackenzie to Leo Fitz[src]

This is a timeline of events that occurred in 2017.





  • Dinah Madani, still in hospital, is questioned on record for an inquiry into recent events, but is not responsive when asked to start. Marion James stops the record to talk to her, and Madani explains that she does not want to let William Rawlins walk away a hero. James tells her that while it will sting, she needs to proceed as it is the least worst option. Madani decides to go ahead.[1][2]

Marion James listens to Dinah Madani's interview

  • The questioning is carried out, and Madani struggles but answers personal and embarrassing questions regarding Billy Russo, as well as taking responsibility for Sam Stein's death, having failed to heed his warnings. James tells her that she sympathizes with her situation, but she has to consider if she is good with living with the lies.[1][2]

Doctor Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto for the first time

  • Strange finds instructions on how to use the Eye of Agamotto: a magical item kept only a few meters away, and experiments with its power. Strange begins to manipulate time for the apple he has been eating, turning it back in its time to regrow, and forward until it rots. Strange uses this power to recover the lost pages stolen by Kaecilius in the book, and comes to realize the Eye's powers of control over the time of objects. He is caught by Wong and Karl Mordo, who both angrily warn Strange not to disturb the natural law, noting that misuse of items of such incredible power could cause Strange to become trapped in a time loop forever.[10][11]
  • Wong and Mordo take Strange to the Sanctum Chamber and reveal the real purpose of the Masters of the Mystic Arts: for keeping Dormammu and other mystical evil entities away from Earth. They also tell him about the three Sanctums across the globe in New York City, London, and Hong Kong, as locations from which the sorcerers can protect the Earth.[10][11]
  • Destruction of the London Sanctum:
  • Stunned from the explosion, Strange starts looking for help, walking through the New York Sanctum. He soon discovers the Rotunda of Gateways, as well as the Cloak of Levitation.[11] He encounters Master Daniel Drumm, who hears commotion downstairs, heading down to face the Zealots attacking the Sanctum, instructing Strange to stay put. Strange, however, chooses to follow.[10][12]
  • Battle at the New York Sanctum:
    • Strange witnesses Kaecilius murdering Drumm. He reveals his presence, forcing the Zealots to attack him, and despite the fact that they had trained for years, Strange manages to fight them with little problem, conjuring eldritch whips and shield mandalas of light to protect himself.[10][11]
    • Strange fights the Zealot called Lucian

      During the fight, Strange discovers that, due to Dormammu's influence, they are capable to alter the real world outside the Mirror Dimension. He decides to use the Rotunda of Gateways to his advantage, trapping one of Kaecilius' disciples in the desert and the other, Lucian Aster, in the jungle, leaving only himself and Kaecilius to continue fighting through the New York Sanctum.[10][11]
    • Strange attempts to intimidate Kaecilius with the Brazier of Bom'Galiath, but he does not use how to use it. Kaecilius throws him into the Cloak of Levitation's glass case, but the cloak wraps itself around Strange's shoulders and helps him in the fight. The cloak guides Strange to the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, allowing him to trap Kaecilius and end the fight.[10][11]
    • Strange speaks to the captured Kaecilius

      Strange tries to interrogate Kaecilius, but he tells Strange only that time and death are insults, and that the Ancient One extracts powers from the Dark Dimension herself, to obtain extended life. Soon, Kaecilius notes that Strange's Sling Ring is missing, as Aster makes it back into the Sanctum and stabs Strange with a Space Shard, almost killing him. The Cloak of Levitation protects Strange by attacking Aster and removing the Sling Ring from his hand.[10][11]
  • Strange uses the Sling Ring to transport himself to Metro-General Hospital, where he calls out Christine Palmer so she can tend to his wounds secretly. Surprised to see Strange again, appearing out of nowhere wearing unusual clothes, and after all this time, Palmer soon begins to tend his wounds as they talk about what was he has been doing during all the time he has been gone. Strange apologizes to her for having treated her poorly the last time they saw each other.[10][11]

Strange overloads and destroys Lucian Aster

  • Duel on the Astral Plane: While Palmer operates on him, Strange projects his astral form and uses it to guide her surgery, leaving her bewildered. Lucian Aster uses his astral form to escape from the Cloak of Levitation, and uses the portal Strange left open so as to follow to Metro-General. Strange discovers Aster in the hospital and a battle ensues between the two of them, disturbing several objects in the physical world as Palmer continues performing the surgery. Palmer eventually shocks Strange twice with a defibrillator, which charges up his astral form enough to kill Aster.[10][11]
  • Strange returns to his body as Palmer finishes her work on his wound. Strange explains that he went to Kamar-Taj in order to heal his wounds, but instead ended up learning magic.[10][11]
  • Now sufficiently better, Strange decides to return to the New York Sanctum and continue his fight against the Zealots. He shows Palmer the portal he made with his Sling Ring, confirming what he was saying to be completely true.[10][11]

Ancient One disagrees with Doctor Strange

  • Strange arrives at the New York Sanctum where he meets with the Ancient One and Karl Mordo, discovering that Kaecilius escaped from the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak. Impressed by his actions, the Ancient One names him the new protector of the New York Sanctum. However, Strange confronts her about drawing power from the Dark Dimension, causing her to leave abruptly.[10][11]
  • Battle of the Mirror Dimension:
    • Mordo and Strange argue about the Ancient One, but they are interrupted as Kaecilius and his Zealots return to destroy the Sanctum.[10][11]
    • Strange drags all of them into the Mirror Dimension so Kaecilius is unable to destroy the Sanctum, and steals his Sling Ring so he cannot escape. Mordo and Strange proceed to run away so they can escape, locking Kaecilius and his Zealots in the Mirror Dimension forever, but Kaecilius and his group start to chase them.[10][11]
    • The Zealots chase the duo in the Mirror Dimension

      Kaecilius distorts the terrain around them so Strange and Mordo cannot reach their portals to escape.[10][11]
    • The Zealots chase and warp nearby buildings and skyscrapers, causing Strange and Mordo to plummet down the twisting New York City landscape. Kaecilius and the Zealots eventually manage to separate the two before cornering Strange.[10][11]
    • The Ancient One arrives in time to rescue Strange and Mordo by warping the dimension herself to move them away to safety. In doing so, she unintentionally confirms the fact that she draws power from the Dark Dimension as the dimension's symbol appears on her forehead. A battle ensues between her and the Zealots, led by Kaecilius, resulting in her old student stabbing her through one of his Zealots, and pushing her out of the Mirror Dimension and back into the Earth Plane with a Sling Ring, where she falls to a harsh impact on the streets of New York. Strange and Mordo follow through the portal to help her.[10][11]
  • Strange rushes the Ancient One to Metro-General Hospital where they are received by Christine Palmer, who proceeds to help her in the surgery room along with other members of the hospital.[10][11]


Strange talks with the Ancient One before she passes away

  • A few hours after the surgery began, at 2:42AM, the Ancient One leaves her physical form and goes out onto a balcony, prompting Doctor Strange to astrally project and follow her, realizing what she is doing. The two talk, and she tells him about the Dark Dimension and why she had drawn her power from there, claiming that it was necessary to help protect others. Strange warns that Mordo will not be so understanding of her. The Ancient One also reveals that she has seen the future, and she knows that this is her final moment. She warns Strange of Dormammu's powers, and holds Strange's hand as she watches snowfall over a nighttime New York City, before her form vanishes, signifying her death.[10][11]
  • In the very early hours of the morning, stunned by the death of his mentor, Stephen Strange washes his hands. He says goodbye to Christine Palmer, before leaving again to fight the Zealots.[10][11]
  • Kaecilius and his Zealots arrive at the Hong Kong Sanctum where Wong, along with other Masters of the Mystic Arts, is preparing to make a stand. A battle ensues, resulting in the defeat of the Masters and the death of Wong. Kaecilius destroys the Sanctum and prepares to summon Dormammu, who begins to fuse Earth with the Dark Dimension, starting above the remains of the Hong Kong Sanctum.[10][11]

Strange convinces Karl Mordo to fight back

  • Meanwhile, Strange reunites with Mordo at the New York Sanctum, and they decide to stop Kaecilius and his Zealots together.[10][11]
  • Battle at the Hong Kong Sanctum:
    • The duo arrive only to find the Sanctum already destroyed, and the Masters who decided to protect it already dead.[10][11]
    • Knowing that they have no other option, Strange decides to use the Eye of Agamotto, breaking the Natural Laws of Time, to turn back time for the city and reverse what has happened. He frees both himself and Mordo from the time reversal, and the reversal returns Wong and many others from the dead, despite Mordo's protests.[10][11]
    • Doctor Strange reverses time using the Eye of Agamotto

      However, Kaecilius breaks free of the time reversal as well and a battle breaks out in the rebuilding city. Kaecilius stops Strange from completing the spell, freezing time for the city around them and ensuring that the Dark Dimension will still arrive despite Strange's best efforts. Kaecilius says that Dormammu's arrival could not be stopped anymore, saying that his dimension is "beyond time".[10][11]
  • Skirmish in the Dark Dimension:
    • Upon hearing Kaecilius' words, Strange figures out a way to defeat Dormammu, and heads to the Dark Dimension, where time is irrelevant. Strange arrives at the Dark Dimension and before he confronts Dormammu, he uses the Eye of Agamotto to create an unending loop.[10][11]
    • Dormammu incinerating Strange with a blast from his mouth

      Loop: Strange tells Dormammu he wants to bargain, but the evil entity refuses, incinerating him with a blast from his mouth. The loop resets itself.[10][11]
    • Loop: Strange floats over to Dormammu again, once again asking to bargain. Dormammu, also aware of the last loop due to Strange's magic, wonders if Strange's reappearance is an illusion. When Strange denies this, Dormammu sends two rods from his dimension flying through Strange's chest. The loop resets itself.[10][11]
    • Loop: When Strange floats over to bargain once again, Dormammu asks what is happening. Strange reveals that the loop he created has put them in an endless cycle for all eternity; the only trap Dormammu could not escape from, since the Dark Dimension was a place beyond time, and therefore Dormammu has no power over it. Dormammu furiously crushes Strange with his fist. The loop resets itself.[10][11]
    • Loop: On Strange's next arrival, Dormammu argues that Strange cannot do this forever, but Strange says he can, and is willing to spend eternity suffering dying for everyone on Earth to live. Dormammu incinerates him with a blast from his mouth again. The loop rests itself.[10][11]
    • Dormammu fights Strange

      Multiple loops: Strange continues to ask to bargain, only for Dormammu to kill him over and over many times, with methods such as rods, Dark Dimension spheres, spikes from the ground, and tendrils.[10][11]
    • Loop: Strange tells Dormammu that he is willing to keep losing forever, since it makes the being his prisoner.[10][11]
    • Loop: Dormammu finally begs Doctor Strange to end the time loop. Strange agrees, on the condition that Dormammu banishes himself and the Zealots from Earth forever.[10][11]
  • Dormammu does this, turning the Zealots and Kaecilius into Mindless Ones and dragging them into the Dark Dimension forever, sealing the portal between the dimensions, as Strange returns to Wong and Karl Mordo on Earth. Mordo leaves the Masters of the Mystic Arts, disillusioned by their dishonest, questionable, and dangerous uses of magic, after having witnessed both Strange and the Ancient One's rash actions be pardoned.[10][11]

Aida reveals her actions to Radcliffe

  • Aida reveals that the changes happened due to the recent uploading of the consciousnesses of Phil Coulson, Jeffrey Mace, Alphonso Mackenzie, and Leo Fitz, and thus the Framework being adapted to accommodate them. Radcliffe is concerned at Aida's actions, saying that she should never have changed the reality of the Framework with him being inside, because it could have caused him severe brain damage. He worries further when she reveals that the four LMDs she sent to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D. are ready to kill in order to complete their missions.[68][75]
  • Siege of the Playground:
    • When Simmons wakes, Fitz's LMD discusses Fitz's desire to marry her and settle down. Simmons is pleased to hear this, but does not fall for the LMD's attempts to bring her over to his side.

    • Johnson reunites with Simmons

      Johnson and Simmons meet, and are terrified that the other is lying and is secretly an LMD. Johnson quakes her, proving that she is not one, as they cannot replicate Inhuman powers, and simultaneously proving Simmons is also real as she feels the vibrations of her bones. The two embrace with huge relief, and decide to fight back against the LMDs and rescue their friends.[68][75]
  • Aida shows Radcliffe the new body she is building for the Superior, and tells him how she is starting to know the feelings of human behavior, but cannot understand it with logic. She also explains that her two main orders are to protect the Framework, and to protect Radcliffe's life, but that that creates a paradox in her programming. She sees them as a contradiction, because he might become a major threat to the Framework if one day he regrets its creation. Aida kills Radcliffe and submits him into the Framework where his consciousness will be preserved, even if his body has perished, to fix the paradox by keeping him safe in a place where he cannot threaten the Framework.[68][75]
  • The base is locked down as Mace's LMD and Coulson's LMD make the agents believe that Johnson and Simmons are LMDs that are trying to destroy the Playground.[68][75]


Johnson fights Mackenzie and Coulson's LMDs

  • However, May's LMD realizes that the order goes against her programming to protect them, and lets the agents through to escape. As Simmons, Johnson, and the other agents start to escape from the base in Zephyr One, Coulson's LMD arrives at the exit in pursuit. May's LMD reveals that she let them go, and as he attempts to move past her, she ignites an explosion to destroy the LMDs and allow the agents to get away. The blast destroys the entire hangar of the Playground, but the Zephyr flies out safely.[68][75]
  • The remain agents pick up Yo-Yo Rodriguez and inform her of the situation.[68][75]
  • In the air following their escape from the wreckage of the Playground, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, along with Yo-Yo Rodriguez, plan to submit Daisy Johnson and Jemma Simmons into the Framework in a neural link so they can find and rescue their friends.[68][75]
