Dormammu is a fictional villain that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics and a recurring enemy of the super-hero Dr. Strange.

Debuting in the Silver Age of comic books, Dormammu has appeared in over four decades of Marvel publications, featuring prominently in the Doctor Strange titles and limited series as the recurring nemesis of the mystic hero. The character has also appeared in associated Marvel merchandise including animated television series, toys, trading cards, video game and flash game in Facebook.


Beyond the fact that he comes from his own strange and terrifying dimension, not much is known about how Dormammu came to be or his past before facing Dr. Strange for the first time.  Early in his modern day attempts to conquer the Earth, he first worked through the sorceror Baron Mordo, the apprentice to the sorcerer known as the Ancient One, who attempted to overthrow his master in Dormammu's service.  In an attempt to save the ancient one, Doctor Stephen Strange tried to warn the Ancient One, only to be thwarted by Mordo.  However, Mordo's plot was predicted by the Ancient One and he defeated Mordo and was inspired by Strange's act of goodness to take him on as a new apprentice.
