I finished reading Marvel Essential Dr Strange Vol 3 so I already read Vol 4 before. So I read Dr Strange comics 1 through 56. He is a Sorcerer Supreme I agree, other then that he is a dick. Clea is his girlfriend and student yet he always brushes her off and even though she is competent he goes into the "need to protect you" dickery which is totally sexist as well. Wong is his friend/servant. Strange yes saves his life a couple of times but treats him 95 percent of the time as a servant not as a friend. His constant meditation when not saving the world is lets face it really an escape from dealing with Clea and Wong.
