Marvel Team-Up #21
Issue(s): Marvel Team-Up #21
We learn that Xandu's desire for the wand stems from a need to heal an old girlfriend who he injured with a magic bolt in his early days. But at the end of the story, Strange declares the girl, Melinda Morrison, dead.
Strange leaves the wand banished in Xandu's dimension.
I like Sal Buscema's art generally, and much later he will be awesome with the mystical stuff, but his Ditko-dimension, while certainly hitting the right beats, isn't as amazing as it could be.
Plotwise, there is a cool bit where Spidey and Doc switch powers.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP has this between Amazing Spider-Man #131-132, and after Dr. Strange's run in Marvel Premiere but before Doctor Strange #1.
Continuity Insert? N
