J[oe] C[asey]: You got it, Somebody. He was compelled to return to try and protect his home turf.

Dr. Strange's prominent role in the last few "Avengers/Invaders" solicits is starting to raise some flags in my head...

And A/I 2 has the New Avengers, including red-and-blue-suit Spidey, hanging at Doctor Strange's.

Is the least-energy solution to assume that NA's depiction of Spider-man wearing black, and showing his face, is the error? Let us pretend that stopped happening a few issues before. There's an entire era here, of stories where the status quo is post-OMD but pre-NA@2.

Yes. That's what I've held to be the least-worst solution practically from the start...

Still "wait and see" for me. I'm thinking Strange keeps letting his self-imposed exile get interrupted for various reasons. Let's see...we have:
GSASTONX 1
FF 556-557
LDEF 3
ASM 555-FB
Then A/INV 2 shows the New Avengers occupying the Sanctum (no Strange yet)

No wonder he's not getting better. We'll have to see how Secret Invasion shakes out. Did you guys catch the winning explanation for Strange being in ASM 555-FB?

The only one of those which doesn't show Strange at levels at least comparable to normal is Last Defenders - which is ALSO the only one to explicitly follow NA@ 2, and which ALSO explicitly states Strange ISN'T living at the Sanctum, nor in the company of others.

That's what I'm saying. :)

That's an "it's magic, we don't have to explain it"-quality explanation that is.

Should've guessed that would be the case. Looks like it's up to us then, to sort things out.

I'm still waiting for a rationale explanation to the amount of time that's passed!
Keeping track of Bendis References since 2001!
