Note: I’m a bit uncertain about how to deal with a story which involves so much time travel. I’ve decided to list every character who appears in each time period even if, in their own chronology, they have already appeared in the story. In this story, Doctor Strange goes from present-day New York City to the Backroads of Time to wherever the other Supremes are. Merlin appears in two flashbacks set in England in 507 A.D., is fighting alongside the Supremes when he time travels to get reinforcements, meets Doctor Strange in NYC and kidnaps him, travels along the Backroads of Time, returns to where the Supremes are fighting just before his younger self leaves, and is soon killed by the Forgotten.

Correction: After taking another look at this issue, I've come to realize that the scenes that bookend this issue's story, the two scenes that are set in Time's Forgotten Hollow in 507 A.D., are both flashbacks. I've adjusted this character watch accordingly.
