Ms. Marvel Solves One of Doctor Strange 2’s Biggest Mysteries

The series by Ms. Marvel has solved one of the biggest plot mysteries of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Doctor Strange 2).

It didn’t come very directly, however. And don’t worry, because this article doesn’t contain major spoilers for Ms. Marvel or Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Doctor Strange 2).

Continues after advertising

In the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Doctor Strange 2) storyline, Doctor Strange meets Nicodemus West at Christine Palmer’s wedding.

Doctor Strange discovers that his colleague was not one of the people who were erased in the Snap of Thanos.

That is to say, Nicodemus West had to deal with all the pain of having lost some of the people who mattered most in his life.

Even because of this, he asks Doctor Strange, “Did it have to happen that way?”, in an obvious reference to the events of the Avengers’ battle against Thanos.

However, how could Nicodemus West know this? He’s just an ordinary person, and he wasn’t involved in the battle at all.

A detail that explains a lot about the MCU

There is a debate that lingers over how people in the MCU came to know so much about what happened during the Avengers’ battle against Thanos.

The series by Ms. Marvel has hinted at an explanation for this issue. In the scene where Kamala Khan visits AvengerCon, there is an announcement for a book called “I Was There”.

According to the official Marvel website, this is a book written by a SHIELD agent that tells the story of the Avengers’ battle against alien forces.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in question had access to many of the inside details of the battle, even though, at the time it happened, he wasn’t close to full destruction.

That is to say, within the MCU, it’s through this book that people found out so much about what happened.

Ms. Marvel is available on Disney+.
