Hi guys.

I don’t really read comics, but I really like the character of Dormammu (at least, from what I’ve seen of him in UMVC3.) I’d like to read some of his stuff, can anyone give me some recommendations for where to start (hopefully where he kicks lots of ass.)

When I say I’m I don’t really read comics, I mean I’ve literally never read an American comic in my life (besides the Watchmen), so don’t be afraid to explain it to me like I’m 5.


Coming off of UMvC3 you might want to start with this Defenders book since that is where Dormammu’s main outfit from that game comes from. It is a little on the comedic side, but very new reader friendly and quite enjoyable.


Awesome dude, you’re the best.

Reading his Wikipedia page he doesn’t sound so much like the “Lord of Darkness”, he sounds kind of like “Lord of Gets Beaten in Really Odd Ways.”


Yup that Defenders by Keith Giffen is the best book featuring Dorm, at least as far as I know.

I wish I had a better answer for you, but the old Doctor Strange issues. Of course, he got more powerful later on. Oh, and he is many stations below Shuma Gorath.
