George R. R. Martin Is Open to Adding Epic Fantasy to the Marvel Universe

In a recent interview with MTV Geek at WorldCon, fantasy author George R. R. Martin revealed that he’d love to write Marvel’s Doctor Strange comic, detailing a take on the character that he’d love to see come to fruition.

Blastr has a transcript of his thoughts on the matter, quoted below.

I’d separate him off from the rest of the Marvel universe and not make him part of a team. He doesn’t really fit any of that stuff, he’s a guy that shouldn’t even be known to the rest of the heroes, living on the edge of the Marvel Universe protecting the world and our dimension and plane from dangers and forces out there that the other characters like Spider-Man and The Avengers don’t even dream exist. He’s our wall against Cthulhu and the Old-Ones and the dread Dormammu. That’s when Doctor Strange was at his best, Stan Lee and Ditko were [writing] him in just that manner.

Doctor Strange as Earth’s sole magical defender does sound pretty cool, and how can you say no to one of the biggest authors in the genre adding fantasy elements to the Marvel universe?
