Advanced Dr. Strange #1:Page 1:
Outside the private practice (unit A) on 177 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village an antique social calling card was picked up from the mailbox by a certain Dr. Strange.
Mordo,... the name struck a bell with Dr. Stephen Strange. Narration box: Years ago, before the old professor died, no wait, was yes, murdered by the very same name that came to mind right now. Before... back when Stephen was a medical student they had been academic rivals. He was getting licensed at a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada. They both were. Back then though the classmate's name was Karl. Stephen: If Baron Mordo or to be more accurate someone for him had mailed this note to the Sanctum Sanctorum then I doubt it could portend anything good.
Dr. Strange: "Wong, see that my remaining appointments from today's schedule are cleared and lock the doors. It would appear my old nemesis is again up to something."
Advanced Dr. Strange Premise:Stephen Strange is a moderately successful private practice psychotherapist, albeit one who for the past few years has been plagued by recurrent dreams. At first he tried to equate it to confabulation but they have gone on for so long that now he is starting to feel that perhaps they have a meaning. These dreams it turns out are actually calling him to accept the mantle of Earth's Sorcerer Supreme.
A somewhat complex man, Stephen also has to put behind him his past in Las Vegas. As a young man to pay his way through medical school (one which is a Miskatonic University extension program in Nevada) Stephen worked as a stage magician in the shady performer Quentin Beck (The man who would later be known as Mysterio)'s magic show. Later Beck was caught using crime to fund his act. The resort he and Strange performed at was owned by the Maggia, so to distance themselves from him, they fired Quentin. Disgraced from the entertainment community and no longer able t

Narration Box that is shown to be J.A.R.V.I.S.: "Accessing internal memory logs. Tony Stark was a troubled engineer with drug addictions who found his health failing due to cancer... he resorted to performing an experimental procedure on himself in order to fix that but found himself transformed into the costumed hero people have taken to calling Iron Man. Lately things have been tumultuous for Stark Industries. In the midst of sabotage and espionage from Hammer and a high pressure deal with the Fujikawa group, stock prices have been both up and down quite a bit." Tony: "J.A.R.V.I.S.?! Are you podcasting that? What did I tell you about secret identities?" J.A.R.V.I.S.: "No sir! I'm sorry sir. Very good sir."
Stane over the P.A.: "Tony, come to my office, I've got something to show you."
Tony: "You did what!?!"
Stane: "Relax kid, I just took your Iron Man armor concept and diversified things a bit. Look, if you pare it down a little, re

Narration box: Howard Stark was a brilliant high tech manufacturing startup entrepreneur during the ColdWar. He helped the US retain an edge against the Soviets during his time as the acting CEO of Stark Industries, a multi-megacorporation that made everything from medical devices to airplanes and computers. At least for a time. Then something happened to him and nobody heard from him again...
[cut to a plane crashing in some remote isolated tundra location].
He did leave behind a son though, a brilliant yet troubled young man named Anthony "Tony" Edward Stark. [Show young Tony going to the Principal's office and having a plastic bag of pills being confiscated]. "C'mon, Teach! I need those to think better!" "Not without a prescription you don't! If it wasn't for your family's contributions to this school I'd have had you expelled ages ago. You're suspended Stark!" We see Tony emptying his locker and notice he has very Iron Man looking doodles in his notebook a
Advanced Iron Man: Prologue:Dying of blood cancer and suffering from brittle bones caused by years of too much work with radioactive substances, materials engineer Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark was desperate for a cure to avoid his imminent demise. It seemed inevitable. What had gotten him this sick was implanting himself with cybernetics that had their own small fusion reactors to self-power. Willing to resort to desperate measures in order to save his life, in one last ditch effort he used nanobots to manually overwrite the diseased cells in his body. This did cure him and repair his injured body but at a cost. In having nanobots create tiny microscopic factories inside his body they were designed to shield his body from the radiation of the miniature reactors but it permanently increased the tensile strength of the surfaces of his tissues and organs to be like that of carbon steel instead. These nanobots and microfactories also strengthened his bones by producing carbon crystal nanolatice
