Yet another magical member of the Marvel universe could be making their way to the MCU. According to The Illuminerdi, Clea will be introduced in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Clea is the third new character now rumored to be appearing in the film alongside America Chavez and Brother Voodoo. However, of the three, Clea has the most connection to Doctor Strange, having once been his romantic partner.
Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Clea first appeared in 1964’s Strange Tales #126. She is the niece of the dread Dormammu, the ruler of the Dark Dimension. After forming a bond with Strange, the two became allies after Clea fled to live with the Sorcerer Supreme. Eventually, they formed a romantic relationship and defeated Dormammu, making Clea the ruler of the Dark Dimension.
The character has since had an on-again-off-again relationship with Strange and is an important part of his corner of the Marvel universe. It’s unclear how she will play into the plot of the film, but her involvement could mean we will see the return of Dormammu. However, based on America Chavez appearing in the movie, Clea could hail from an alternate reality similar to Chavez.
If this rumor is to be believed, it seems Marvel Studios is setting up Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to be a huge part of Phase 4. Introducing all of these characters and the multiverse is no small feat, so it will be exciting to see how it all fits together.
