Marvel Comics and the MCU, Doctor Strange has proven himself to be something of a trump card for Marvel’s heroes, using magic to instantaneously fix problems that couldn’t otherwise be resolved, though it seems he is a bit more effective in the comics as he managed to fix his Spider-Man: No Way Home mistake with Ms. Marvel. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Peter Parker asks Doctor Strange to make everyone forget that he is Spider-Man so that he and his friends have a shot at being accepted at their college of choice. In the previous film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Mysterio revealed Peter’s secret identity to the world, effectively turning his entire life upside down. So, Doctor Strange agrees to help him, but when Peter keeps interrupting the Sorcerer Supreme (former, that is), the spell doesn’t take and instead pulls in a number of villains from different universes who all know Peter Parker is Spider-Man. While Doctor Strange is able to fix the damage he caused (though the full extent of it is likely to be explored in Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness), he still completely bungled the spell and proved himself to be less than reliable.
Ms. Marvel: Beyond the Limit #5 by Samira Ahmed and Andrés Genolet, Ms. Marvel is faced with a predicament that is tearing down the fabric of all realities. In the first issue of this series, Kamala came into contact with a piece of advanced technology that theoretically allows one to travel to different dimensions. Apparently, it worked as when she touched it, she brought in a person from another world named Qarin. While Qarin seemed friendly at first, Ms. Marvel soon learned that she wished to steal Kamala’s powers and identity. On Qarin’s world, Kamala is a powerful world-changing hero known as Marvel-ji. After Ms. Marvel neutralized Qarin, she and her friends didn’t know how to send her back to her own reality, so they went to the one person who could pull off a multiversal task such as this. Ms. Marvel went to Doctor Strange, who not only was immediately available to help, but also knew everything that had been going on involving Qarin and her multiversal displacement. After Doctor Strange commended Ms. Marvel and her team on how they handled the situation, he simply opened a portal to Qarin’s world and took her home, with no issues whatsoever.
Spider-Man’s multiversal problem where the only way Strange could fix things in No Way Home’s ending was to make everyone forget Peter Parker is along with the fact that he’s Spider-Man, thus leaving him completely alone in the world, Doctor Strange is able to fix Ms. Marvel’s issue without leaving her with any detrimental side effects. While the two problems had their differences, they both involved a fractured multiverse and the intervention of magic to pull off what technology couldn’t. However, if Doctor Strange had taken the time to go over the parameters of the spell with Peter in Spider-Man: No Way Home, he wouldn’t have fractured the universe in the first place, but since he didn’t, Peter Parker’s life was thrown into shambles.
In this issue of Ms. Marvel, Doctor Strange analyzed the situation from a distance, then came up with the proper solution without harming anyone involved, effectively fixing his Spider-Man: No Way Home mistake with Ms. Marvel.
