Years ago, the mystic entity Watoomb retired from mystic affairs and summoned sorcerer apprentices Doctor Strange and Cyrus Black to his dimension. He handed each one half of the Wand of Watoomb in a battle for possession. Black lost and spent years studying and training so that he might defeat Doctor Strange.
