Previous Post

The age thing comes only after the Ankh of Enduring Life thingy. Before that, he should be aging normally.

Once he's at Bleecker Street (which he gets immediately after "graduating" from the Ancient One), his adventures flow one after another as concurrent with other things in the Marvel Universe at the time. There's really no way to work stories like the one "From the Marvel Vault" or even the Lost Generation. I wish that it were so, because I really like The Lost Generation, but I don't see how.

From the Vault stories, if I remember correctly, were stories written before, but not published until now.

I believe that specific issue was written to be part of the Marvel Universe series, which included Invaders and Monster Hunters stories. Bth of which are in continuity.

That story deals directly with him purchasing the property. And there is no reason to believe it is out of continuity.

As for Marvel the Lost Generation... you are right. It is probably out of continuity. And you are right again, that is a shame.

However, it was originally intended to be... even if it didn't make a lot of sense. The story of Mr. Justice alone could have been great. Captain Hip? Come on, that has at least some potential.

And you forget, Dr. Strange's origin was not given until his third appearance. His first appearance says he has a reputation spoken in whispers (or some such thing).

That takes time.

He and Nightmare also seem to be aware of each other.

It has been a while since I last read Englehart's run (which is certainly something I should rectify soon), but doesn't the Ankh just keep him from dying?

I don't think aging (other than perhaps dying from old age) was mentioned.

Besides, Doc clearly aged while studying magic. His hair goes from jet black to having greying temples.

How long does that take? Well, that depends on the man, the stress level and the age. Some go grey sooner than others.

However, that doesn't mean his aging wasn't slowed towards the end, or once he left.
