Synopsis for "... While a World Awaits!"Edit
As Dr. Strange defends the Doorway of Dimensions from Dormammu, Umar and their army seeking to gain access to Earth's dimension, Clea and Victoria Bentley safely arrive in Dr. Strange's Sanctum. There Wong answers the door to an old colleague of Dr. Strange, Dr. Charles Benton, who has come to talk Dr. Strange out of a life of a mystic (which Benton believes is nothing more than chicanery) and work for him as a medical consultant. While this is happening, at the Doorway of Dimensions, Strange is bound in mystical chains while Dormammu seeks to break a portal to Earth.
Clea and Victoria use the Orb of Agamotto to reverse a spell cast upon Umar that limits her powers. Umar, wanting revenge against her brother allows Dr. Strange to become free and go after Dormammu through the portal. There the two fight and ultimatly Dormammu is drawn back from whence he came. Arriving home Benton asks Strange to come back to work for the hospital as a consultant. Strange asks to be left alone as he is really tired, causing Benton to lose his temper and storm out, ironically admonishing Strange that he will "never be of use to anyone!"
