The latest issue of Strange Academy revealed that Doctor Strange is unknowingly training the children of an Asgardian villain.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Strange Academy #10 by Skottie Young, Humberto Ramos, Edgar Delgado, and VC’s Clayton Cowles, on sale now.
The students of Strange Academy have lived through some truly terrifying moments lately, and it seems as though things are finally starting to get back to normal. In the wake of mystical attacks and unrelenting prophecies, Doctor Strange has arranged for his pupils to take a field trip to a mythical land where they can relax and enjoy a day away from the horrors that have been following them. Danger is inescapable for the next generation of magic users, though, and the mystery regarding the parentage of two students in particular has just been answered by a classic Asgardian villainess, the Enchantress.

The students arrival on Asgard is welcomed by the father of Strange Academy’s resident Asgardians Iric and Alvi. For as long as they have been at the school, these two have shied away from answering any questions regarding their parents, although considering the jovial nature of their father, it’s hard to see why. After settling in and getting acquainted with the landscape, the students are led by Volstaag to the feast that awaits them, although not everyone seems to be interested in the festivities. When Iric steps away from the others, he is followed by Doyle Dormammu who witnesses the young Asgardian finally reunite with his mother, the Enchantress, who is currently serving a sentence for her latest misdeeds.
When she was first introduced in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Journey into Mystery #103, Amora aka the Enchantress had been asked by Loki to seduce Thor. This bid to steal his heart away from Jane Foster didn’t go as planned, and so Amora enlisted the aid of Skurge the Executioner to defeat her new rival. This plot was foiled as well, and Amora was sent back to Asgard by the God of Thunder following her defeat. Throughout the years the Enchantress has consistently tried to further her own goals and amass power for herself, even while acting heroically in the face of all manner of threats.
Even the far future depicted in recent issues of Captain Marvel sees Amora continuing to exploit others in order to prolong and protect her own life. In the future, Amora is seen ruling alongside Ove, the son she had with Namor. Even when her son proves himself to be a tyrant, Enchantress stays by his side, even if that devotion is born as much out of fear as it is of any matriarchal sense of duty.
While Enchantress is far from what anyone would call a hero, she isn’t a purely evil figure. She may not be an especially sentimental figure, but she does have genuine affection and concern for her sons. It still isn’t clear exactly how she and the father of her children met, or what their relationship looks like now. Similarly, there is no telling what precisely landed her in the cell she currently occupies, but there is little doubt that she will be walking out of it before long.
With any luck, none of this will spell disaster for Doctor Strange and his Academy, especially with how much they already have to deal with. But if Strange really has no idea concerning the parentage of his Asgardian students, the school may be facing even bigger problems once the truth is revealed.
