Characters Appearing: Dr. Strange, Marjorie Brink
Marvel Comics Presents #61 (Dr. Strange)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #61 (Dr. Strange story only)
Dr. Strange goes to the library, looking for a book on "gamma-globulin immuno-history". But it turns out that he knows the librarian, Marjorie. It's almost lunchtime, and she takes him back to her place to catch up. When they get there, she tells him that she thinks she's immortal.
In addition to not aging, she's proven immune to poison and starvation.
She's aware that Stephen gave up medicine to become a mystic, but not that he's a real sorcerer, so he reveals that to her.
He intended to show her a vision of the future, but due to Marjorie's unique situation they wind up actually transporting there.
And they are met by Future Marjorie.
In the future, there's a war with a "demon sun" and mankind lost all of its knowledge. But Marjorie, being an immortal librarian, was able to provide mankind with its lost memories. With that, Stephen and Marjorie return to the present.
I know that, based on her destiny, Marjorie has to spend the majority of her time in a library, absorbing all of mankind's knowledge. But you'd think an immortal person would occasionally be useful in the present as well, so i'm surprised that Dr. Strange doesn't occasionally go to her to ask her to help out with the latest Infinity Crisis or whatever.
