Could Iron Man And Professor X Be Villains In Doctor Strange 2?

In the Multiverse of Madness, Professor X and the Superior Iron Man could be villains. The multiverse is a concept that we know very little about, said Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The reason for this is that he hasn’t seen Loki. This explains how the MCU’s multiverse works, with branching timelines and different “variants” of heroes. Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland recently starred as three different Spider-Men in a spectacular team-up in the new Spider-Man movie.

Of course, this is only the beginning, as the multiverse itself will be explored in-depth in Doctor Strange 2. When Patrick Stewart appeared in the Multiverse of Madness Super Bowl trailer, he had the audience in stitches with his voiceover of a cuffed Strange. It’s also possible to see a glimpse of the Superior Iron Man, with rumors that Tom Cruise will play the role. However, Jon Favreau convinced the studio to go with RDJ, so such a casting decision would be very appropriate.

According to general consensus, Xavier and possibly Tom Cruise’s Superior Iron Man are members of some sort of Illuminati group. This patrols the multiverse of the MCU. However, it’s also possible that the Xavier and Iron Man variants are part of a group of villains, rather than heroes. Doctor Strange 2 is being extremely circumspect when it comes to revealing who the villains are, and neither of these two can be dismissed.

Marvel Comics’ Professor X Hasn’t Always Been A Hero

Charles Xavier’s character isn’t always portrayed heroically in the media. While Professor Xavier may be right in his belief that the Promised Land of mutant-human coexistence can be achieved through cooperation, he often crosses the line and proves to be a flawed prophet unfit to lead us there. Because of their ability to see into the minds of others, telepaths like Charles Xavier are especially prone to developing a God Complex.

These people think that they have the right to “fix” other people as if they were problems, and that it is their duty and obligation to do so. As the leader of the X-Men and the founder of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, Charles Xavier has repeatedly abused his position of trust by manipulating the minds and erasing memories of his students, even limiting their power development on occasion – without their consent. There are many flaws in Professor X, which makes him an unlikeable hero.

However, there was one comic book series that went a step further. The multiverse’s greatest threat turned out to be a slew of evil Charles Xavier clones, so an interdimensional team known as the Exiles was formed to protect it. In fact, the Exiles were shocked to discover that evil Xaviers were the norm. This, rather than the exception across the multiverse as they investigated.

Every incarnation of Xavier has the same God Complex due to his immense psychic power. Consequently, this led him to lean toward evil rather than good on most of the timelines. In this case, Doctor Strange isn’t meeting a hero when confronted by an alternate version of Charles Xavier. Dr. Strange appears to be a new character, rather than the one seen in Fox’s original X-Men timeline. There is no face of Professor X in the new Doctor Strange 2 trailer. This suggests that Marvel is still hiding something major in the sequel.

Multiverse of Madness concept art has shown a version of Professor X sitting in the hoverchair he used in the 1990s comics and in the classic X-Men: The Animated Series. Even though this is an entirely different character, it is possible that Marvel chose to make him an enemy rather than an ally of the Masters of the Mystic Arts.

Could Superior Iron Man Be A Villain?

In the Multiverse of Madness, Doctor Strange could easily showcase an evil Iron Man. To be sure, the Doctor Strange 2 trailer suggests an Iron Man storyline. Here, Stephen Strange is brought before this unexplained multiversal group as a prisoner who has been captured by Ultron. A glowing figure in the trailer may explain why some viewers have compared him to the Superior Iron Man. Nonetheless, the MCU’s Iron Man is rumored to be the same as he appears in the Marvel comics.

The strangest aspect of Iron Man and Professor X is that they are heroes. A spell crafted by Doctor Strange and the Scarlet Witch backfired, “inverting” heroes and villains in the comics. Consequently, this possibly creates the Superior Iron Man. Even though he was still protecting Earth, Tony Stark’s motives were as self-serving as they could possibly be. His ego was on full display, his morality gone, and his intellect unfettered.

According to rumors, a Superior Iron Man is coming to the MCU. This is so regardless of whether Tom Cruise is playing Iron Man or not. Instead of being a hero, this Iron Man would be introduced as a villain. When the multiverse was created, Loki warned that it was inevitable that there would be a multiversal war. There’s a common misconception that the show’s antagonists will all be variations on the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror. However, that’s not necessarily true.

If Dr. Strange had entered the MCU’s multiverse, he could have just as easily encountered evil versions of classic superheroes as he could have encountered heroic ones. Nothing is ruled out in this new Doctor Strange 2 trailer. Like the best of them, the sequel is designed to hide as much as it does to reveal. With many more surprises in store for Doctor Strange, Iron Man and Professor X could be a great addition.
