The Sorcerers Supreme aren't like other superhero teams. After all there can only be one Sorcerer Supreme at a time, which means the team that Stephen Strange assembles in Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme is made up of Sorcerers Supreme from different timelines. In addition to Strange and the Ancient One who taught him magic, the group also features Merlin and Billy Kaplan, aka Wiccan, the former Young Avenger whose future as a Sorcerer Supreme was established in the X-Men crossover Battle of the Atom in 2013.

The preview doesn't reveal much about the team, or how Strange goes about recruiting them. However, it does feature a pretty great Lovecraftian monster and a psychedelic two-page spread that clearly depicts a dimension outside of spacetime as we know it.

Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme #1 is written by Robbie Thompson with art by Javier Rodriguez, and it's out October 26.
