Doctor Strange Theory: Mordo predicted the fate of Kamar-Taj?

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees Kamar-Taj fall victim to a major attack, but did Mordo foretell this event years ago?

In the original version strange doctor movie, Mordo’s presence was that of a student of the Ancient One and a teacher of Doctor Strange, but whenever a risk to the natural order presented itself, Mordo struck with fiery passion and fear of the consequences that could result from it. However, as it became clear that his beliefs were taken for granted, he chose to distance himself from wizards, and his choices soon after may have proven his fears correct and led him to inadvertently predict a violent fate for Kamar-Taj. .

The natural order states that any form of manipulation of the space-time continuum could have catastrophic consequences on the fabric of reality. Mordo was a firm believer in maintaining order at all costs. At first he felt the reason his concerns were silenced was that Strange was a more advanced wizard, but after seeing him use the Time Stone so blatantly and learning about Dark Dimension manipulation from the old to live forever, he came to a new conclusion – too many wizards. Since then, he has spent his days taking magic back from those who used it for selfish ends in the hopes that the fewer people who manipulate its properties, the less imbalanced the natural order will be.

Kamar-Taj is a place in Kathmandu, Nepal where enthusiastic young minds can train in the mystical arts. Led by the Sorcerer Supreme, his students protect their reality from any magical threat from other planes. However, following the events of the Infinity Saga, things got a lot more complicated. Not only did the Avengers use time travel to their advantage, but Doctor Strange willingly allowed it by peering into the future. On top of that, the multiverse is reborn in the events of Loki, and Strange used a spell soon after, which brought his dangers right to Earth’s Gateway. As a result, for roughly a decade, Strange and the other heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have created a price that demands massive payout.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees Kamar-Taj under attack. While it’s unclear who might be behind the attack, it seems likely that it was a direct result of the decade’s past transgressions of the natural order. Ironically, Mordo warned Strange and Wong of this in 2016 when he reminded them that the bill was still coming due. His efforts, while malicious, were all in the hope of avoiding this fatality or at least balancing the costs as best he could.

Mordo also later appears in the trailer for Multiverse of Madness with no interest in helping Strange deal with the new dilemmas he faces while venturing into the unknown. However, it is unknown if this Mordo is a variant or the same version of the last film. If he turns out to be part of the MCU timeline, he could have helped orchestrate or even lead the attack on Kamar-Taj. However, if this is true, it would imply that his prediction came true by his own hand, as he felt that other wizards had lost their right to maintain the natural order, and only he was capable of carrying the burden. .


Mordo is a complicated wizard who handles the burden of great passion and belief. However, when these are challenged, he responds violently and will easily give up whatever he knows to take a path he deems right. His action reduced the number of wizards in the world, and his constant warnings have echoed throughout the MCU for years. It is unclear whether his prediction will fully come true, but Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness can promise, at the very least, that the invoice is always due.

To see Kamar-Taj’s fate, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters May 6.
