Who is Clea?
First appearing in Strange Tales #126 (1963), Clea is originally a Faltine entity from the Dark Dimension. She is the daughter of Prince Orini and Umar – Dormammu’s sister. In fact, Orini is the legitimate successor of the Dark Dimension. However, he was defeated by Dormammu and usurped the dominion of this world. Due to Dormammu’s frequent attacks on Earth, Clea had a chance to meet Doctor Strange.
Clea is Dormmamu’s niece but becomes Doctor Strange’s lover
The two got to know each other when Doctor Strange went to the Dark Dimension to fight Dormammu. At first, she tried to stop her but ended up siding with Doctor Strange because she was impressed by his bravery. Because of this betrayal, Clea was imprisoned by Dormammu and nearly died but was rescued by Doctor Strange. After that, the heroine moved to Earth and became Doctor Strange’s disciple and lover.
Clea is Doctor Strange’s true love
After many battles, Clea gained the support of the people of the Dark Dimension and was able to defeat and banish Umar and Orini. She became the new leader of this world and married Doctor Strange. However, the Sorcerer Supreme is forced to return to Earth to fulfill his mission. The two gradually became separated and even divorced after Clea discovered that Doctor Strange was hanging out with some other girls.
She is Strange’s greatest love, not Christine Palmer
However, both still have feelings for each other and always help and support each other when needed. At the beginning of the recent Death of Doctor Strange (2021), Doctor Strange died fighting the Three Mothers and ceded the title of Sorcerer Supreme to Clea. It can be said that Christine Palmer is similar to Peter Parker’s Gwen Stacy when they can only go together for a while while Clea is Doctor Strange’s MJ.
Clea is the Ultimate Witch of the Dark Dimension and possesses great power in regards to manipulating magic to produce various effects. She can transform and project energy beams, create entities with energy, teleport, psychic powers, enchant thoughts, manipulate minds, create illusions, and exploit energy from another dimension or summon powerful monsters and gods.
Clea’s power is not inferior to Doctor Strange or Wanda
Clea can also copy all of Doctor Strange’s spells. Due to her descent from the Faltine clan, she is able to create her own mystical energies like Umar and Dormammu, and rely on them to power her own magic. Clea’s age is indeterminate as she has lived for centuries but still has the form and demeanor of a young woman. Thanks to the Flames of Regency, Clea was able to defeat even the strongest of the Dark Dimension and possessed a vast knowledge of magic.
What does the arrival of Clea mean for the MCU?
Clea’s appearance proves that Strange will fight Dormammu again in the future
In the post-credits scene of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Clea appears and says that Doctor Strange caused an Invasion. She then opened the portal to the Dark Dimension and called on Strange to deal with it. The appearance of Clea suggests that Doctor Strange will have a rematch with Dormammu after the 2016 movie. In addition, their love will also be the focus of the upcoming work when Christine Palmer is “potted”.
