"Dormammu deceives you; you have no idea of what he truly is. His eternal life is not paradise, but torment."
―The Ancient One to Kaecilius[src]

The Mindless Ones[1] are a race of humanoid beings that dwell in the Dark Dimension.


Eternal Life

"What is this?"
"Well, it's everything you ever wanted. Eternal life as part of the one. You're not going to like it."
Kaecilius and Doctor Strange[src]

According to the Ancient One and Doctor Strange, the costs of eternal life outweigh the benefits greatly. Through unknown means, the Ancient One was able to draw power from the Dark Dimension to stop herself from aging, but not suffering the cost of becoming a Mindless One.[2]

The Zealots

The Zealots are transformed into Mindless Ones

Determined to prevent Kaecilius and the Zealots from destroying the Hong Kong Sanctum, Wong ordered the Masters of the Mystic Arts to prepare for battle. Despite their best efforts, the Masters were defeated and the Sanctum was destroyed, leaving the Earth vulnerable to Dormammu. Eventually, Kaecilius freed himself and managed to tamper with the Eye of Agamotto, stopping time. Doctor Strange fled the scene and confronted Dormammu, eventually convincing him to leave Earth and take the Zealots with him. As they were pulled away from Earth, the Zealots began to transform into Mindless Ones.[2]

Notable Mindless Ones


  • In the comics, the Mindless Ones were created by the entity Plokta as unstoppable engines of destruction. When Dormammu was expanding his domains across the Multiverse, the Dark Dimension and the Mindless Ones were among his new acquisitions.
