The Ancient One is a Marvel character , the mentor of Doctor Strange and was his predecessor as Sorcerer Supreme. The Ancient One first appeared in Strange Tales #110 (cover-dated July 1963), and was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The character who would eventually become the Ancient One was born in Kamar-Taj, “a hidden land high in the Himalayas”, more than 500 years ago. He spent his youth as a peaceful farmer, until his friend Kaluu discovered the power of magic and shared this knowledge of the mystic arts with the Ancient One.« Back to Glossary Index
