"Attachment to the material is detachment from the spiritual."
―Wong to Doctor Strange[src]

Wong (Mandarin: ) is the current Sorcerer Supreme. When their former librarian was murdered by Kaecilius and the Zealots, Wong then became the highly protective keeper of all the ancient books when he met Stephen Strange, and assisted him in his studies. As Kaecilius attempted to use his power to bring Dormammu to Earth, Wong and the other Masters used their power to eventually defeat him, at the cost of Ancient One's death. With Kaecilius' conflict over, Wong had then joined Doctor Strange in protecting the New York Sanctum.

Wong stood with Strange and Iron Man when the Black Order had attacked the Earth in search of the Time Stone, holding them back until Wong was forced to remain behind to protect the Sanctum as Ebony Maw managed to kidnap Strange. When Strange perished along with half of the universe's population to Thanos, Wong became the new Sorcerer Supreme.

In 2023, he transported many of the revived Avengers and their allies to New York in a massive battle against an alternate Thanos, who had decided to destroy the universe with the Infinity Stones and create a new one in his image. The coalition opposing Thanos succeeded as Thanos and his army crumbled to dust, and Wong attended Tony Stark's funeral with Doctor Strange and the rest of their allies.


Mystic Arts Master

Trained by the Ancient One

"I've been sent from the Kamar-Taj to better understand the appearance of the relic which this woman now wields... and even after witnessing it with my own eyes, I don't believe I know any more than before I arrived here."

During his time with the Masters of the Mystic Arts, Wong learned of the Infinity Stones, such as the Space Stone and its association with Red Skull before it was found by S.H.I.E.L.D..[4] Wong also knows that the Time Stone was housed inside the Eye of Agamotto.[1] Wong trained alongside Kaecilius and Karl Mordo, while they were sent by the Ancient One to locate the Dark Scepter from a Witch. Through their combined strength, Wong and all his fellow Masters defeated the Witch to reclaimed the Scepter.[5] Wong then continued studying and keeping track of the Infinity Stones, fearing what would occur if somebody would ever combine all six.[4]

Meeting Doctor Strange

"This section is for masters only, but at my discretion, others may use it. You should start with Maxim's Primer. How’s your Sanskrit?"
"I’m fluent in Google Translate."
―Wong and Doctor Strange[src]

Wong being introduced to Doctor Strange

Wong was appointed as the librarian at Kamar-Taj following the unexpected betrayal of Kaecilius who had murdered the previous Librarian and stolen pages from the Book of Cagliostro. While still working in the Library, Wong was introduced to Stephen Strange who had just begun his training there. Wong remained serious despite all Strange's attempts at jokes by comparing Wong's own single name to Adele and Eminem while Wong simply focused on his work.

Wong collects his books for Doctor Strange

Impressed by his level of understanding of all the Mystic Arts within such a short amount of time training with Karl Mordo, Wong decided to give Strange access to some deeper parts of his library which were normally for Masters of the Mystic Arts only and handed him new books, informing Strange that he could borrow any book he pleased, including the Ancient One's private collections of books, noting that no knowledge in Kamar-Taj would be forbidden for him to learn.

Wong gives Doctor Strange several books

During their conversation, Strange found the Book of Cagliostro and pointed out the missing pages as Wong then proceeded to explain to Strange how the Zealots' recent attack, led by Kaecilius had resulted in the pages being stolen. Noting how the previous librarian had been beheaded by Kaecilius in the Library, Wong noted that all the books were now under his protection and if anyone tried to steal any of the books, Wong would personally kill any person who was responsible, making Strange extremely uncomfortable as Strange began jokingly questioning if there would be any punishments for him if he were to bring the books back late, which Wong still did not laugh at.[1]

Losing Books

Wong refuses Doctor Strange's requests

"What do you want, Strange?"
"Books on Astral Projection."
"You're not ready for that."
"Try me, Beyoncé."
―Wong and Doctor Strange[src]

While still working in the Library in Kamar-Taj, Wong was then visited once again by Doctor Strange who requested some new books on the Astral Dimension for his studies. Wong, however, claimed that Strange was not ready for these just yet, only for Strange to still insist while jokingly calling Wong "Beyoncé". However, Wong still did not laugh and simply refused to hand over the books to Strange.

Wong's books are taken by Doctor Strange

Later, as he was reading while listening to Beyoncé inside the Library while reading more of the books, Wong failed to notice Strange using his Sling Ring to take books from the library. Although Wong failed to see him actually taking any of the books, he did notice that Strange had even stolen the book right in front of him, resulting in Wong then going to the Ancient One and informing her of all Strange's actions, noting how Strange was becoming impatient in his studies.[1]

Explaining the Masters

Wong gives Doctor Strange a strong warning

"Your curiosity could have gotten you killed. You weren’t manipulating the space-time continuum — you were breaking it. We do not tamper with natural law — we defend it."
―Wong to Doctor Strange[src]

Later, when he and Karl Mordo caught Strange practicing a time spell from the Book of Cagliostro, they reprimanded him for it, stating that he was breaking natural laws. Strange had earlier tried to call Wong to check whether or not the book was restricted, but proceeded on his own after not receiving a response. Wong explained to Strange the purposes of the Sanctums for keeping Dormammu from Earth before the London Sanctum was destroyed by Kaecilius and the explosion knocked him back.[1]

Battle at the Hong Kong Sanctum

Wong and the Masters prepare for battle

"I'm breaking the laws of nature, I know."
"Well, don't stop now."
Doctor Strange and Wong[src]

In response to attacks made towards all the Sanctums around the world, Wong defended the Hong Kong Sanctum from Kaecilius and the Zealots. While Wong collected the Wand of Watoomb, he ordered the remaining Masters of the Mystic Arts to not allow anyone to enter the final Sanctum.

Wong is saved by the Eye of Agamotto

Wong died when the Sanctum was destroyed, allowing Dormammu to arrive, beginning to consume Earth and bring it into the Dark Dimension. When Strange used the Eye of Agamotto to reverse what had happened, he was revived. Doctor Strange brought Wong into his time slip where the reverse effects wouldn't affect him, nor their comrade Karl Mordo, preparing to fight Kaecilius. Strange was expecting a lecture on breaking the laws of nature, but Wong, realizing there was no other choice, told Strange to keep going. Right when the duel was about to start, Strange seemingly abandoned the group and flew into the Dark Dimension.

Wong watches the Zealots being defeated

Strange returned seconds later and the Zealots were taken to the Dark Dimension instead. Wong laughed at Strange's quip about the "warnings come after the spells". Unlike Karl Mordo, who became disillusioned and left the Masters of the Mystic Arts, Wong did not blame Strange for breaking natural law.[1]

Assisting Doctor Strange

Wong offers Doctor Strange some advice

"You might have a gift for the mystic arts, but you still have much to learn. Word of the Ancient One's death will spread through the Multiverse. Earth has no Sorcerer Supreme to defend it."
―Wong to Doctor Strange[src]

Before Strange was appointed to be a new guardian of the New York Sanctum in the wake of Daniel Drumm's untimely death, Wong revealed that the Eye of Agamotto held an Infinity Stone. Wong also noted that due to the Ancient One's death, Earth was vulnerable and needed them to be ready to defend it from those seeking to destroy it.[1]

Wong tells Strange he had much to learn

A few months into Strange's time as the New York Sanctum's guardian, Wong interrupted his journey into Astral Dimension to alert him to the foreboding air in the sanctums. Updating Strange to what he knew about the Infinity Stones, Wong also alerted Strange to Thor and Loki's presence in New York City.[4] At some point, a full moon party was held at Kamar-Taj and Strange cast the Runes of Kauf-Kaul to erase the memories of everyone who attended the party, including Wong.[3]

Infinity War

Bruce Banner's Arrival

Wong shows his currency to Doctor Strange

"We swore an oath to protect the Time Stone with our lives."
"And I swore off dairy, but then, Ben & Jerry's named a flavor after me, so..."
―Wong and Tony Stark[src]

One day in 2018, Wong visited Doctor Strange at the New York Sanctum. He asked Strange, who was heading out, to go to the deli-grocery store for food, as Strange asked why Wong did not have any money. In response, Wong noted that attachment to the material was detachment from the spiritual, to which Strange had to mockingly tell Wong that he would tell this statement when he arrived at the store. Remembering his currency, Wong had then pulled out two hundred rupees and was asked how much was it worth, which Strange noted was a buck and half.

Wong and Doctor Strange see Hulk arriving

As Wong decided to go with Strange, Strange asked what Wong wanted at the store and told him that he would not say no to a tuna melt. However, the two were then interrupted by the Bifrost Bridge bringing Bruce Banner crashing down from the sky into the staircase inside the Sanctum, and decided to investigate. As he was equipped with his Tao Mandalas, Wong found Banner lying in the wreckage, warning that Thanos was coming to Earth, as Strange asked who Thanos was.

Wong tells the group of the Infinity Stones

At Banner's urging, he and Strange would go and find Tony Stark who was with Pepper Potts at Central Park, needing Stark's help for the upcoming battle. Once Strange summoned Stark to the Sanctum, Wong filled Banner and Stark in with information about the Infinity Stones, as Strange introduced their names. Once Stark asked about Thanos, Stark proposed to destroy the Time Stone, but Wong told him that he and Strange had sworn an oath to protect with his life. After a brief scuffle between Stark and Banner, Wong and Strange noticed the commotion outside.[2]

Attack on Greenwich Village

Wong stands against the Black Order

"Can I leave you with him? Thank you."
"I have him."
Iron Man and Wong[src]

At that moment, Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian arrived in New York City to secure the Time Stone from Doctor Strange in order to return it to Thanos. Wong walked outside along with the people who are running away from the Q-Ship that is hovering above the city. After Maw and Obsidian appeared out of the ship, Wong stood beside Doctor Strange and took notice of their statements.

Wong uses his Sling Ring against Ebony Maw

After Maw became annoyed with Tony Stark, he took attention towards Strange; however, he refused to give up the stone. Wong prepared for battle by equipping duel Tao Mandalas and fought Maw and Obsidian. As Obsidian focused his attention on Stark, Maw cast a flurry of brick spikes at them, which Strange caught in an Inter-Dimensional Portal before Wong redirected them out of another, injuring Maw. Maw responded by rupturing a fire hydrant, causing a spray of water that incapacitated Wong.

Wong returns to the New York Sanctum

Once Wong managed to recover, he arrived at Greenwich Village and saved Stark by transporting Obsidian to Antarctica. Wong then closed the portal, severing Obsidian's left forearm. After this, Stark remarked that Wong was now invited to his wedding for saving him, before flying away. Due to Strange being captured, Wong said goodbye to Banner and returned to the New York Sanctum to protect it in his stead.[2] Soon after, Wong survived the Snap. As a result, Wong became the new Sorcerer Supreme.[3]

Sorcerer Supreme

Battle of Earth

Wong rejoining the battle against Thanos

"Is that everyone?"
"What, you wanted more?"
Doctor Strange and Wong[src]

In 2023, after the Blip, Wong was contacted by a restored Doctor Strange and traveled across the universe, enlisting allies for the final battle against an alternate Thanos and his army.

Wong and Doctor Strange ready for battle

Wong and Strange then opened up numerous Inter-Dimensional Portals to bring them all to the ruins of the Avengers Compound. Wong also brought all the sorcerers from the Hong Kong Sanctum and Kamar-Taj with him. When Strange inquired with Wong if they were able to summon everyone, he exasperatedly asked Strange if he wanted more. Wong then stood alongside all the assembled heroes as Captain America led the charge into battle.

Wong protecting his allies from Thanos

During the battle, Wong and his fellow sorcerers conjured massive Tao Mandalas to protect their allies after alternate Thanos ordered the Sanctuary II to rain fire on them, until they were all saved by Captain Marvel, who destroyed the Sanctuary II with ease. The battle came to an end when Iron Man stole the Infinity Stones from Thanos and used them to wipe out him and his entire army out of existence, though at the cost of his own life.

Wong attends Tony Stark's funeral

A week later, Wong and Strange attended Tony Stark's funeral at Stark's home. He and Strange stood side by side together at the procession as they watched Stark's Arc Reactor being sent adrift into the lake.[6]

Tournament Fighter

Wong having his duel against Abomination

"That hurt, Emil! Do you want me to show you how it feels?"
―Wong to Abomination[src]

In 2024, Wong became involved in the Golden Daggers Club in Macau, China, spending time participating in cage matches. One had him going up against Abomination and, despite being overwhelmed at first, managed to defeat the Abomination by using a Sling Ring to force him to punch himself.

Wong gives Abomination a drink

Afterwards, Wong and Abomination went to a room to decompress from the tournament. Wong told Abomination that he had gotten more violent than they had agreed, but Abomination only grunted. Wong then offered Abomination a drink of water, as Jon Jon, Shang-Chi, and Katy Chen walked into the room. Ready to leave the club, Wong conjured a portal for him and Abomination to leave through. Wong went first and called Abomination to follow as they went to another location.[7]

Studying the Rings

Wong interrupts Shang-Chi and Katy Chen

"I know this is a lot to take in, but you're gonna have to start getting used to that. From now on, the trajectory of your lives will be like nothing you've ever experienced before, and there's no going back."
―Wong to Shang-Chi and Katy Chen[src]

When Shang-Chi received his father's rings and used them, the weapon emitted a beacon that was detected by the Masters of the Mystic Arts at Kamar-Taj. Wong then located Shang-Chi in a bar in San Francisco and emerged through an Inter-Dimensional Portal, telling Shang-Chi and Katy Chen to come with him to Kamar-Taj, shocking their friends.

Wong discusses the Ten Rings' true origins

Inside Kamar-Taj, he contacted Carol Danvers and Bruce Banner via hologram to try and better understand the mythical artifacts. However, they were clueless about its origins. Danvers suddenly left the call to respond to an alert, while Banner disconnected soon after. Wong informed Shang-Chi and Chen that they were now on the hero's path, with no way to turn back.

Wong sings with Shang-Chi and Katy Chen

He encouraged the duo to return home and get some rest, but Shang-Chi then got the idea to sing karaoke. Wong agreed to participate and went with them to a nightclub in San Francisco and sang "Hotel California".[7]

Visited by Peter Parker

"Hasn't he been through enough?"
"...Just leave me out of this."
Doctor Strange and Wong[src]

Sometime later, the Rotunda of Gateways opened up to Siberia and a blizzard came through into the New York Sanctum covering it in snow and ice. Wong hired a young woman and man to shovel out the snow and he and Doctor Strange had to wear winter jackets inside. In the fall, Wong appeared in the Sanctum's foyer via Inter-Dimensional Portal and found Peter Parker inside. He greeted Parker and told him what had happened in the Sanctum, before Strange arrived, levitating down to stand beside Wong.

When Parker became confused after hearing Strange wasn't Sorcerer Supreme anymore, Strange told him that Wong had become the new Sorcerer Supreme since he had blipped and the title had to be filled. As such, this meant that Wong was in leadership over the Masters of the Mystic Arts. He then walked off to collect his luggage leaving Strange and Parker to talk.

Wong giving Doctor Strange his warnings

Wong overheard Parker asking Strange to help reverse what Mysterio had done by revealing his identity and when Strange proposed a spell he could do, Wong advised against it. He stated it was too dangerous, although Strange reminded him that they had done the spell before in Kamar-Taj. Wong forgot this and reluctantly agreed, trusting Strange's judgment before walking back through another portal to head to Kamar-Taj. Sometime later, all of Wong's memories regarding Parker, including his identity as Spider-Man, were erased.[8]


"I am now the guardian of these books. So if a volume from this collection should be stolen again, I'd know it, and you'd be dead before you ever left the compound."
―Wong to Doctor Strange[src]

As a longtime student of the Ancient One and one of the most knowledgeable Masters of the Mystic Arts in Kamar-Taj, Wong is serious and unflinching when it comes to performing his duties, both as an instructor and later, a librarian of Kamar-Taj. After Kaecilius' betrayal, Wong gets more reluctant to trust others, and constantly puts up a stern appearance, to the point of threatening Doctor Strange when the latter was only trying to be friendly and make jokes when coming to borrow books. Despite being seemingly ignorant of contemporary pop culture, it is revealed that Wong actually enjoys his fair share of pop culture just like most are, but pretends to not be aware of it around others, and is less serious when others are not around. Like Karl Mordo, he has a great deal of respect for the Ancient One and the natural laws, but unlike the younger student, he is capable of moral flexibility and willing to bend said laws when the situation desperately calls for it, as shown when he approved of Strange's time-bending when confronting Dormammu.

Although initially hostile to Strange, due to the latter's attempts to be funny and exceeding inquisitiveness, Wong has come to appreciate those traits as well as Strange's exceptional gift at the Mystic Arts, eventually becoming one of his strongest allies, and his surrogate tutor in the absence of the Ancient One. He was deadset against Strange using the Eye of Agamotto as it violates the laws of nature, but after seeing Strange use it for the benefit of mankind rather than abusing it, he decided to let Strange inherit it once he mastered its powers, but advised him not to wear it in plain sight until then as it is the vessel of an Infinity Stone. Even though Wong is evidently a very serious person, he is not completely without a sense of humor, as he laughed at Strange’s remark about warnings coming after the spells upon the surviving Zealots’ transformations into Mindless Ones, which shocked Strange and Mordo.

Powers and Abilities


"The Sorcerer Supreme has higher duties, yes."
  • Master Sorcerer: Wong is one of the most powerful members of the Masters of the Mystic Arts, a highly skilled and experienced sorcerer, using his skills in the mystic arts to defend his native reality. Wong possesses a vast knowledge of magic, as he is knowledgeable of many dangerous spells and relics that were forbidden to all other Masters of the Mystic Arts, such as the Eye of Agamotto and the Dark Dimension ritual. Following Doctor Strange's capture, Wong assumed the role of the New York Sanctum's Master sorcerer, and he later surpassed him as the Sorcerer Supreme, albeit on a technicality.
    • Eldritch Magic Manipulation:

      Wong wielding Tao Mandalas in battle

      Wong is able to create, shape and manipulate Eldritch Magic into weapons, shields or spells. He used this ability when Bruce Banner crashed into the New York Sanctum to summon his shield in case of emergency and when fighting Maw, he conjured a shield large enough to block an entire city street to deflect several trees telekinetically hurled at him by Ebony Maw, and also conjured a larger shield in tandem with other sorcerers to provide cover from aerial fire during the Battle of Earth. He is also capable of using the same magic to form whips of fiery energy and cast a variety of different spells.
      • Portal Creation: Using a Sling Ring, Wong is able to open portals that lead to different locations, gaining the ability to move across the material world and transport himself to other parts of the Multiverse. He can use this power offensively, as seen when he redirected Ebony Maw's telekinetically-fashioned brick spikes back at him, or when he opened a portal to force Abomination to punch himself in the face.
        • Interdimensional Travel: Using the same Sling Ring, Wong can travel between different dimensions of the Multiverse, crossing over different planes of existence or traveling across various forms of reality, with him most notably using it to defend against Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian's attack on Doctor Strange and himself.
      • Barrier Creation: Like many of his fellow sorcerers, Wong is able to use Tao Mandalas as shields in combat, as well as to control the size and shape of his shields. Notably, he projected and expanded a shield into a large circular wall construct that blocked off an entire street and stopped multiple projectiles of debris launched by Ebony Maw. Wong, along with several other Masters of the Mystic Arts, was also able to create a barrier to protect himself and his allies when Thanos ordered the Sanctuary II to bombard the battlefield during the Battle of Earth.
      • Holographic Projection: While explaining the Infinity Stones to Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, Wong generated a holographic display of the cosmos and the stones by conjuring Eldritch Magic formations.
    • Astral Projection: Wong is capable of separating his astral form from his body, gaining access to the Astral Dimension.


  • Expert Martial Artist: Wong is a remarkably powerful fighter, as he was able to hold off the Zealots for a short period of time. Wong is also quite skilled in armed combat, with his main weapon of choice being the Wand of Watoomb.
  • Skilled Acrobat: Wong possesses exceptional athleticism that allowed him to evade most of Abomination's punches and kicks during their fight at the Golden Daggers Club.
  • Multilingualism: Wong is fluent in his Mandarin, English, and Sanskrit throughout his tenure in Kamar-Taj.



Other Equipment

  • Sling Ring: A mystical object which enables the wearer to open a fiery portal to another location to allow instant transportation to any location the user desires.
  • Ten Rings: When Shang-Chi brought the rings to Kamar-Taj following the Battle of Ta Lo, Wong used magic to examine their features and capabilities, only to find they have no match in any known relic from Earth or other planets.


  • Kamar-Taj: To be added
  • Hong Kong Sanctum: To be added
  • New York Sanctum: To be added
  • Golden Daggers Club: By 2024, Wong became a tournament fighter at the central ring of the Golden Daggers Club in Macau. One of Wong's notable matches was with Abomination, who he defeated after using his Sling Ring to create a portal that redirected one of Abomination's punches. Following the match, Wong and Abomination relaxed in the changing room, before Wong opened a portal for them both to go through and leave the club.





Appearances for Wong

In chronological order:


  • In the comics, Wong is the son of Hamir and the descendant of an ancient order of Chinese monks that, for ten generations, have served the Ancient One, the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth. He served as Stephen Strange's valet and friend.
  • Wong is a fan of the Hunk-A-Hulk-A Burning Fudge flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

Behind the Scenes

  • Wong in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the second live-action incarnation of the character, following an incarnation portrayed by Clyde Kusatsu.
  • Benedict Wong revealed in an interview with Den of Geek that the Marvel Cinematic Universe incarnation of Wong will be quite different from his comic book counterpart, who is generally considered to be a racial stereotype: "I’m certainly not going to be the tea-making manservant. We’re heading in a different direction. He’s more of a drill sergeant. There isn’t any martial arts for Wong in Doctor Strange actually, he’s more of a drill sergeant to Kamar-Taj. He’s one of the masters of sorcery."[9]
  • Scott Derrickson revealed in an interview with Los Angeles Daily News that Wong was originally intended to be left out of Doctor Strange due to the stereotype associated with the character: "I was going to leave Wong out of the movie at first; he was an Asian sidekick manservant, what was I supposed to do with that? But once the decision was made to cast Tilda, we brought Wong back because, unlike the Ancient One, he could be completely subverted as a character and reworked into something that didn’t fall into any of the stereotypes of the comics."[10]
  • Tsuyoshi Abe, Jean-Paul Ly and Lukaz Leong were stunt doubles for Benedict Wong in the role of Wong.
  • Cem Ozgan was a stand-in for Benedict Wong in the role of Wong.
