"Doctor Strange was there, right, and he was like 'It's been five years, come on, they need us.' And then he started doing that yellow sparkly thing he does all the time."
Spider-Man to Iron Man[src]

An Inter-Dimensional Portal is a portal that acts as a mystical wormhole, creating a gateway between two locations in space-time. The Masters of the Mystic Arts have the ability of opening these portals using Sling Rings. It is also possible to create these portals using either science or other types of magic.

History

Discovery of the Multiverse

"All you have to do is focus. Visualize. See the destination in your mind. Look beyond the world in front of you."
Karl Mordo[src]

The Sorcerer Supreme Agamotto became the first known human to learn about other dimensions. He dedicated his life to protecting the Earth realm from extra-dimensional threats using magic. The Masters of the Mystic Arts also discovered a way to open portals using Sling Rings.[1]

Discovery of the Darkforce

During the 1940s, humans began experimenting with nuclear energy; during one such experiment performed by Isodyne Energy, a rift was created where a substance dubbed Zero Matter entered this dimension. Eventually, the scientists Whitney Frost and Jason Wilkes became infected with the substance.[2] Frost actively sought more of the Zero Matter and reopened the rift; however Wilkes entered the opening.[3] Upon his return, he described his experience in another dimension outside the Earth realm.[4]

Abilisk

The Abilisk travels between dimensions

"We've been hired to stop an inter-dimensional beast from feeding on those batteries and I'm going to stop it with a sword?"
Gamora to Star-Lord[src]

In 2014, the Abilisk used its interdimensional abilities to get to the Sovereign planet and feed on Sovereign Anulax Batteries. Upon arriving, it was confronted by the Guardians of the Galaxy.[5]

"The gateway's almost ready."
"Don't need it. Learned a few things since you saw me last."
Jemma Simmons and Ghost Rider[src]

Robbie Reyes helped S.H.I.E.L.D. to kill Aida. Following the victory, he returned to the Dark Dimension by opening a inter-dimensional portal using his Hellfire Chain.[6]

Warning from Doctor Strange

Trivia

  • Wormholes created by either the Bifrost or other means like the Monolith or the Tesseract share a lot of functions with some of the inter-dimensional gates listed here. The difference is that a wormhole can only create a "short-cut" between places inside the universe and not to other dimensions.
  • Inter-dimensional travel is also possible through other means beside portals. For instance, Ant-Man was able to travel to another dimension without using a portal; he shrunk until he caught a glimpse of the Quantum Realm. The Spirit of Vengeance is also capable of travelling between dimensions without the need for a portal.
