And here’s our magical surprise! Meet the Target-exclusive Defender Strange, which opens up some very interesting possibilities for Multiverse of Madness. The outfit is one of the character’s other comics looks, so it’s entirely possible that this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Doctor Strange in a new outfit. But if the What if? animated series taught us everything, it’s that it’s multiverse chockablock with Doctors Strange. Given that the figure has smooth black hair and a smaller goatee than the other Strange figures, I suspect this will be the case.

However, it is very strange that the name of this character is Defender Strange. In the comic, Doctor Strange was a founding member of the superhero team the Defenders, along with the Hulk and Namor the Sub-Mariner; the Silver Surfer joined very shortly afterwards. It would be very Marvel Studios to use Multiverse of Madness to secretly include the Hulk or introduce one of the other two characters, whether they are part of this universe or another. Now of course there is already the Netflix series with the title the defenders, which brought together Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist… but since Charlie Cox almost certainly reprising his role of Matt Murdock in No Way Home, could he appear in Multiverse of Madness? (Yes, it could.) To be determined!
