Strange first appeared in the anthology series Strange Tales in 1963, before taking over the title entirely a few years later.

Train, a lifelong fan, talks much of the history and the diverse characters in Strange’s lore.

In current news, Seth goes over the impressive numbers the feature film has taken in. At the time of recording the movie had grossed $85 million dollars domestically, and $240 million internationally. Which totals $325 million in one weekend. It’s also the 14th straight #1 opening for a MCU title.
