Avengers: Endgame Trivia #112: Benedict Cumberbatch did a brilliant job at establishing himself as Doctor Strange, a wealthy, acclaimed and arrogant neurosurgeon. Audiences loved him in the Avengers saga, and he took notice to become one of the most influential people of the group.
But, there’s a fact about Doctor Strange which resembles Lord Shiva. Doctor Strange has a third eye on his forehead just depicted as Lord Shiva.
As the history of Hindu mythology depicts, Lord Shiva has a third eye at his forehead. It’s not ironical to see Stan Lee drawing a similar inspiration to give a similar superpower to Doctor Strange.
A trivia published on ScreenRant states: “’An eye such as no mortal has ever beheld’ is how Stan Lee described the as-yet unnamed Eye of Agamotto in Strange’s first story. Unlike the MCU version, it’s magical, rather than an Infinity Stone. It’s Stephen’s most powerful tool, functioning as anything from a mind probe to a tracking ray to a magical phaser. Sometimes the eye jumps out of the amulet and sits in Stephen’s forehead.
While this has a certain symbolism — the ‘third eye’ of mysticism and parapsychology — it doesn’t seem to make the Eye any more powerful or effective. It definitely looks weird – Ditko loved making Doctor Strange look truly strange.
Like Stephen’s Supreme status, he’s lost the Eye several times over the years, including the start of his newest series.”
