Masters Of The Mystic Arts

Doctor Strange, the Master of the Mystic Arts, then fought against Thanos alongside the other heroes on Titan. However, despite Strange temporarily holding his own against Thanos, he was eventually defeated and forced to trade the Time Stone in exchange for Iron Man’s life. As Doctor Strange returned from the Metro-General Hospital back to the New York Sanctum, he found the body of Lucian Aster and discovered that he had killed him. He met with the Ancient One and Karl Mordo and discovered that Kaecilius had escaped from the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak. The Ancient One was impressed with his defense of the New York Sanctum, declaring Strange as the new Master of the New York Sanctum.

According to Johnston, “oth contemplation and mysticism speak of the eye of love which is looking at, gazing at, aware of divine realities.” Since the 1960s scholars have debated the merits of perennial and constructionist approaches in the scientific research of “mystical experiences”.

That is the separation of meditation and other mystical practices from their traditional use in religious ways of life to only secular ends of purported psychological and physiological benefits. Tantra is the name given by scholars to a style of meditation and ritual which arose in India no later than the fifth century AD.

Magician heroes can also make magical items on their own, using the Equipment rules from theMarvel Game Book, or the expanded inventing rules from Mike Selinker’s article “Super Science in the Marvel Universe” inDragon Annual#3.
