The following article contains spoilers for Weird #5, on sale now from Marvel Comics.
wonderfully Weird #5 reveals that the mysterious Harvestman’s secret identity is none other than a resurrected Doctor Strange.
Weird #5 comes from writer Jed MacKay, cartoonist Marcelo Ferreira, inker Roberto Poggi, colorist Jana Tartaglia, and VC letterer Cory Petit. The issue sees Clea, the current Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe and the widow of Stephen Strange, continue to interact with the Harvester, a mysterious figure she refers to as “Sorcerer Supreme of Doom” who first appeared in Weird #1. After the recent, albeit temporary, resurrections of Thunderstrike and Shadow Knight, Clea turned to Harvestman for answers in an effort to see if she can bring her late husband back from the grave.
As Harvestman serves Death, he insists on the fact that Stephen cannot be resurrected. “I’ve told you and told you again, Sorcerer Supreme!” he yells at Clea. “Abandon this target! It belongs to Death, forget it!” Clea refuses to do so, causing Harvestman to fly away in anger. She teams up with Moon Knight to learn more about reviving the dead, while Harvestman confronts Death in a spooky graveyard. There, Harvestman removes his mask, revealing himself to be Stephen Strange.
Death is concerned that Clea may be “overstepping her authority” and warns Strange that she “might need correction”. Strange may not yet have told Clea the truth about her reappearance; however, he insists until her death that he is still very much in love with her. “My wife is a fierce and brave soul,” he says. “She is not to be punished by her nature. Clea fights for love, for the hope of being reunited. Just like me. You have Stephen Strange as your Harvester, you can have my soul…but my heart is still his.” “.
The Strange Doctor’s Death
Doctor Strange met his end when he was killed by Kaecilius, who initially tried to pin the blame on Baron Mordo, in The Strange Doctor’s Death. Clea has since assumed the title of Sorcerer Supreme; though she has, repeatedly, shown more interest in bringing her husband back than taking on the responsibilities of her role. At the Hellfire Gala, Clea pleaded with Emma Frost to resurrect Strange using the X-Men’s resurrection methods, but Emma told her that it couldn’t be done. Still determined, Clea’s life hit another bump when her mother, Umar, made a sudden reappearance in Weird #4.
Weird Issue #5 features a cover by Lee Garbett and a variant cover by Logan Lubera and Rachelle Rosenberg. The theme is already on sale by Marvel.
