List of the most notorious foes from Doctor Strange's rogues gallery, as ranked by the fans. The Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, was created way back in 1963 by comics legends Steve Ditko and Stan Lee. Ever since then, he's been met by some of the wildest evildoers from the Lord of Chaos himself, Dormammu, to the Unclosing Eye, Shuma-Gorath.

Which are the greatest Doctor Strange villains? Do you enjoy the rivalry between Strange and Mordor, or do you hold Blackheart in a special place in your heart? If these names just sound like a strange language to you, then perhaps you need to check out the top six Dr. Strange comic book stories!
