Possible concerns

IF he is the Sorcerer Supreme, I am happy that he is getting screen time that is (in my opinion) overdue.  But his magic, to me, is unique.  He (sorta like Storm's ancestor, Ashake) has a large amount of mystic abilities because they are based on his spirituality/religion.  If he starts going off and employing various other Gods/Goddesses, I fear that he may lose what makes him stand out.  His name is Brother Voodoo, not Brother Agamotto.

"Hello Brother Agamotto, I'm taking the Eye back" grabs the Eye and runs off

I am actually really interested to have him as the Sorcerer Supreme. I hope they write him well and do him justice.

I am happy to see him as well.  I'm just worried that his unique, faith-based magics are going to be compromised.

You make a good point. Guess will have to wait and see where Marvel takes him

As Hanna Montana would say, "Say what"? So many more powerfull mystical characters out there than a guy who can talk the spirit-gods of voodoo.

actually the loas are not spirit gods but more in-betweens to the bondye, or "good god".    at it's heart voodoo is monotheistic, so the loas are just spirits.  much like the catholic saints.  So while i really enjoy this character, and am excited and intrigued by this controversial choice of a sorcerer supreme ( just read a little history of haiti and voodoo, including it's uses by fracois "papa doc" duvalier , to see my meaning) i also don't know how his beliefs would mesh with doctor strange's more eclectic magic  set.  it wouldn't make sense to give these abilities to a priest or rabbi after all, and a houngan  is really no different.

Well I believe stephen strange began with no knowledge of and without a particular magic or religious base and therefore opened himself up to a more diverse magical system, meaning he could call on any number of gods or spirits because he didnt really limit himself to one religion. Brother voodoos magic comes from his belief in Voodoo. If he continues focusing his magick through the confines he can become an even more powerful hougan, which is weird since he is already supposidly the most powerful Voodoo magician in marvel universe. Maybe if the writers do it right they will be able to widen the confines of his abilities by opening him up to more magical systems. I always thought his characters lack of development was very much tied to the fact that his powers are so heavily tied into his religion which most writers are unfamilar with abd no matter how much research one does its hard to get a bigger picture into what a voudon practioner can do without being a follower. I mean its hard when you limit any magical character when you limit them to one system. its as if brother voodoo is trying to shove an anvil through a keyhole, he has all this power but limits it to Voodoo. besides Dr. strange didnt just use gods to increase his spells he used his own personal energy, items of magical power, as well as beings of high spiritual levels (demons, spirits, angels etc.) so I hope they dont just limit him to loa communication and fire manipulations because this can lead to great power development as well as character deeping, I mean how does a highly religious man come to terms with the belief that there might be more powerful beings than the gods he held so close. also want to see strange in his own comic dealing with being a novice again after being the most powerful magician on earth. I hope marvel doesnt drop the ball on these two characters again.
