Most powerful magicians

#1 Edited by Devias (297 posts) - - Show Bio

I tried the search function the results where either different in subject or way outdated.  
 
The Phantom Stranger may be the most powerful (and coolest) magician today but he has almost zero feats. Hell, even his battle with the Spectre was off-panel. 
 
I haven't followed Strange since his hands were broken by the Hulk. Is he back with his usual abilities? 
 
The last time I saw Fate was when Nabu fought with the Spectre.

The Phantom Stranger isn't a Magician. 
 
Doctor Fate and Doctor Strange (pre-depowerment) are the most powerful. SA Doctor Fate overall.

Doom's probably up there, too. He was considered for Sorceror Surpreme at a couple different times.

I want to say Strange in Marvel, Fate in DC; however, magic's a little more loosely-defined in DC, allowing for magic-users to be roughly in the same league with one another. I mean, you've got Shazam, Black Alice, Zatanna - all very powerful, even when against each other.

Hmm, in retrospect, you may be right. 
 
Is SA Doctor Fate more powerful than Classic Strange?

Yes. SA Fate took on the Spectre on even ground.

Huh, I didn't know that. So they're probably about equal then. Thanks for the info ^_^

Yeah. I go back and forth on the SA Fate vs Classic Strange debate. I can see it going either way.
 
For the record, here ya go:
