The introduction of Clea in Doctor Strange follows the trend of introducing powerful new allies that are essential to Doctor Strange’s future story arc. A fresh take on a beloved superhero, Clea is an exciting prospect. Her power set sounds right up the alley of Doctor Strange. With the MCU’s continued success, there are an endless number of opportunities for the future of the MCU and how it will expand. Since Clea can jump between dimensions and can return to her home dimension at any time, she opens up those possibilities for bringing other characters into the mix, maybe even some more magic-themed ones who are indeed more powerful. The question of what Doctor Strange saw is important too since it could be looking forward to a larger story arc down the line. Finally, you have Dormammu – who is likely just biding his time and will undoubtedly attempt his next plan on world domination sooner than later.
