"I'm beginning to understand why your Mordo didn't like you very much!"
―Baron Mordo to Doctor Strange[src]

Baron Karl Amadeus Mordo is the Sorcerer Supreme and a member of the Illuminati. Once Doctor Strange was executed by Black Bolt, Mordo received the title of Sorcerer Supreme.


Early Life

Befriending Doctor Strange

Mordo trained and eventually became a Master of the Mystic Arts. In 2016, he met Doctor Stephen Strange. They befriended each other, becoming great friends. However, Strange would go on to become the Sorcerer Supreme, and would later found the Illuminati. Mordo would eventually become jealous of him.[1]

Becoming Sorcerer Supreme

During the Infinity War in 2018, Doctor Strange used the Darkhold to dreamwalk across the Multiverse for a possible solution to the conflict. This led to the destruction of an entire reality due to an Incursion.

Strange confessed to the rest of the team that he had destroyed a reality, and Strange asked the rest of the team to kill him to protect the Multiverse. In response, Black Bolt reluctantly unleashed a sonic scream onto Strange, killing him. Due to Strange's death, the role of Sorcerer Supreme was given to Mordo, and Mordo also became the new member of the Illuminati.[1]
