Dr. Strange 2 Didn’t Respect the Illuminati (And It Wasn’t Even That Scene)

Marvel Studios did not honor the Illuminati through Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Benedict Cumberbatch reprises his role as Doctor Strange after appearing in Spider Man No Way Home this time focusing on his own adventure. In addition to progressing in the wizards arc of the franchise Doctor Stranges Multiverse Into the Madness is also based on the MCUs multiverse in which Doctor Strange finds himself traveling through different realities including one in which the Illuminati reside. When Doctor Strange traverses the multiverse to help American Chavez Zochitel Gomez escape from the Scarlet Witch Elizabeth Olsen who had been searching for her for her powers the pair ended up on Earth 838 one of the universes in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. There the team consisted of Captain Carter Hayley Atwell Mordo Chiwetel Ejiofor Maria Rampius Lashana Lynch Captain Marvel with Black Bolt Anson Mount Mister Fantastic John Krasinski and Professor X Patrick Stewart. Compiled by Earth 838s Doctor Strange the Illuminati as in Marvel Comics he is tasked with making difficult decisions for the greater good. However before they can establish themselves as strong players in the MCU Wanda Maksimov goes on a rampage and ends up killing them all.

Even before he was easily killed by the Scarlet Witch Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Doctor Stranges Illuminati had already failed. In Marvel Comics the Illuminati is a council of the greatest heroes in the Marvel universe where each member is chosen to be a representative of their own team. They are supposed to be the smartest among their peers so they are given the responsibility to make tough decisions that everyone else can fall behind. Unfortunately this was not the case in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. When Doctor Strange of the Holy Timeline explained to them the situation regarding the Vermilion Witch and her relations with Darkhold they chose to ignore it. Instead they were obsessed with the idea that a wizard was the greatest threat to the Multiverse even without treating the Doctors Stranges Spider Man No Way Home spell. Only Professor X from X Men realized the real problem the danger posed by the Vermilion Witch so he divulged the information about Dr. Stranges Vishanti book and tried to save Earth 838 Wanda.

Individually some of the choices made by the Doctor Stranges Illuminati members have also been in doubt. Mr. Fantastic was supposed to be the smartest guy in the world to begin with but he only spoke about the abilities of the Black Bullets giving Wanda an idea of how to defeat him. Mordo on the other hand seemed to be blinded by jealousy because he had never thought about Doctor Stranges crisis. Meanwhile the decision to kill Earth 838 Doctor Strange seemed a lazy way to solve the problem especially since Supreme Strange seemed to regret his actions. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness didnt adequately address why Doctor Stranges was grouped into Earth 838 so it wasnt clear if they had any other role than Marvel Comics. But given his response to the Sacred Timelines Doctor Strange case his death in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness may not have been a huge loss for the MCU multiverse anyway. With the Doctor Stranges Illuminati now dead on Earth 838 its strange if Marvel Studios plans to release a Sacred Timelines version of the superhero team. For what its worth the Illuminatis presence on Earth 616 has already been provoked since Phase 1 by Iron Man 2. However if the Illuminati makes it to the main MCU timeline they will happily be more efficient than their Doctor Strange in the multiverse than Madness.
