MVC Dormammu


Dormammu is the ruler of the Dark Dimension and one of the many foes of Doctor Strange. After he and his sister Umar killed their own father in their home realm, they were forced to flee to the Dark Dimension where they taught to its ruler King Olnar the ability to absorb universes into his dimension in exchange for a residence. However, Olnar was later killed by an Invasion of the Mindless One, which were defeated by Dormammu and Umar. Since there was no king left, Dormammu took the throne for himself and became more powerful than before.

Respect thread.

Seals Eternity (who's a non-corporeal abstract being)

Disintegrated Eternity's substance while in his weakest incarnation (Strange Tales #146), and the very same Eternity supposedly had whole universes (Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #9) inside of him if we go the novelization of the events written by Sara Wolf according to Doctor Strange's own view of the abstract. The Low Multiversal effects and such status of that version of Eternity are also backed up by other sources, such as Kaluu being set free in a dimension/universe far away from the 616 (Strange Tales #148), and the battle causing a transdimensional holocaust (Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #23)

Sealed Zom in the chains of living bondage.

Summons the great black magicians from across the universe.

Absorbed Umar and Mordo, and gained their powers.

Can merge with his selves from a different timeline to amplify his already immense power.

Erects (another) barrier to banish all the Mindless Ones to a pocket of the Dark Dimension.

Can seal off portals.

Distorts the astral form of Dr. Strange with a gesture.

Petrifies the Hulk into crystal.

Outlawed dreaming in all of his dimensions, where even daydreaming hurts the victim.

Forcibly took Eye of Agamotto from Doctor Strange for his own use, despite the amulet having an infinite amount of security enchantments.

Together with Umar, by sharing in her power and allowing her to share in his, defeats Eternity and made him bleed.

Infects Eternity by entering his being and consciousness then detonates Eternity's heart. Then absorbed the infinite energies of Eternity.

Is responsible for the existence of the Dark Dimension. He sustains the entire dimension itself by simply being.


Given the absolutely massive inconsistencies of the character, both upwards and downwards, we decided to use an approximated average power level.

    • Well, if we compare them at their peaks, Thanos should have no substance whatsoever compared to Dormammu, but Marvel matchups usually run...

    • True. I did say maximum power, though, so the Dormammu that beat up multi eternity is the opponent, I guess.
    • Well, maximum Dormammu would easily win. Regular Dormammu would likely easily get beaten.
