Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Clea debuts in Strange Tales #126. In Marvel Comics, she is the eventual wife of Stephen Strange and the niece of Dormammu, a villain who appeared in the first Doctor Strange film back in 2016. She confronts Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) in the sequel to inform him that his actions caused an incursion — two Earths colliding into one another — before opening a portal to the Dark Dimension and telling him that the two need to fix it.

in the current strange series by writer Jed MacKay and Marcelo Ferreira, Clea is the Sorcerer Supreme of both Earth-616 and the Dark Dimension. The reason why she holds this role for two domains is because Doctor Strange died in the appropriately titled The Death of Doctor Strange series by MacKay and artist Lee Garbett. Clea’s mission in strange is to resurrect her love so that the two can be reunited once again.

as for Multiverse of Madness, the movie includes more newcomers than just Clea, like America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez). The movie has been out for weeks as of writing, and Marvel has finally released official images and promos featuring Earth-838’s Illuminati and members like Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell). The group is the first to bring up the term “incursion” to Doctor Strange, hinting that the MCU could be heading towards the fan-favorite Secret Wars storyline from 2015.

As for a possible future with Secret Wars and/or Theron’s Clea, no official announcements have been made for a Secret Wars project or a third Doctor Strange movie as of writing. Other projects slated to follow Multiverse of Madness include Ms. Marvel, Thor: Love and Thunder, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and more. Thor: Love and Thunder is the next movie to release as of writing, which will reintroduce Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) as the Mighty Thor.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now playing in theaters.
