This is as good a place to ask as any: What's Dr. Strange, Wong, and Wolverine's "before" and "after" for ASM #555? I know placement is kind of wierd due to the whole "Dr. Strange has left the team" routine...
I have the following appearances by Strange around this time:
FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #24
NEW AVENGERS ANNUAL #2
GIANT-SIZE ASTONISHING X-MEN #1 ("I'm not at my peak")
FANTASTIC FOUR #556
FANTASTIC FOUR #557
FANTASTIC FOUR #562
LAST DEFENDERS #3 (paraphrasing: “I'm still not ready with my hands in this state and my mystical energies at an all-time low”)
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #555 -- FB
SECRET INVASION #8 -- FB
NEW AVENGERS #51

Then there's Strange's appearances in AVENGERS/INVADERS, where he uses his "sorcery supreme." They must occur after after ASM 553, since a DB issue in A:INV 2 notes a Crowne-Hollister debate. And ASM 555-FB occurs only two days after ASM 553. So is Strange "partially powered" in A/INV?

The only subsequent appearance by Wong I can immediately come across is NA 53, where I believe he was in the running to succeed Strange as Sorcerer Supreme.

They even acknowledge it on the letters page of that same issue...

Ah, didn't notice that before! I'm glad they acknowledged it, at least.
