> So far as i'm aware: they next 'met' in 1973 with the Avengers/Defenders clash i've been posting from, Loki is blind after a fight with Thor and Dormammu rescues him reducing him to the role of a servant more or less... but Loki is still scheming and Dormammu has engineered the fight between the two teams!
> The teams arrive to confront Dormammu with Loki at his side but there is no acknowledment of Loki's prescence really and he doesn't do much as the fight is Dormammu's...
> I think the next meeting is in the 'Heroes Return' mini in the 90s where Loki appears in astral form and taunts Strange, just taunts here, he wants to know what Strange knows and is trying to manipulate him when he is spirited away I think...
> As a sidenote Strange battles Enchantress & a Pseudo Executioner cum Bloodaxe in the early 90s and notes that while he could probobly "deal with either one handily" two of them are too much, he also makes an interesting comment about the Asgardians power being Teutonic and backed by centuries of worshippers or words to that effect. I shall have to post this one sometime perhaps.
> So basically Loki, Asgard & Strange don't mix... which is a bit odd really.
I think the whole Strange vs Loki thing is like two boxers circling each other sizing each other up. They both respect each other but I feel Loki under estimates Strange while Strange has a very healthy respect for Loki.
