Sorting “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” Characters into Hogwarts Houses
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is one of the latest additions to the MCU. This new movie follows the eponymous protagonist as he tries to protect America Chavez, a teenager capable of traveling the multiverse, from Wanda Maximoff. As we’ve Sorted characters from previous MCU shows and films into their Hogwarts Houses, we thought we would do the same for this latest installment.
Doctor Strange – Gryffindor
In our last MCU Sorting, we put Doctor Strange in Ravenclaw. However, in this film, his actions put him more in Gryffindor than Ravenclaw. In the past, Doctor Strange did the tactically smart thing by sacrificing whoever he needed to for the greater good. This was demonstrated when he arranged things so half the universe would blip for five years and when he was willing to let the antagonists die in Spider-Man: No Way Home. But in this film, instead of doing the most practical thing, which would be killing America and taking her power, he does the brave thing by helping her. He stays with her throughout the multiverse and goes up against the slightly more powerful Scarlet Witch numerous times, proving his Gryffindor nature.
Earth-616’s Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch – Slytherin
In WandaVision, Wanda was the protagonist who reversed her mistakes to release the residents of Westview and let her family go. These actions took lots of courage and bravery, which is why we placed her in Gryffindor. However, the Darkhold has corrupted the Wanda Maximoff we follow in this film so she becomes a merciless being capable of mass murder to achieve her goals. This ruthless nature puts her in Slytherin.
Wong – Gryffindor
Gryffindor values courage, bravery, nerve, and chivalry, all of which Wong demonstrates numerous times throughout the movie. In spite of the fact that Wanda was much more powerful than Wong, he fought against her (and her monstrous minions) multiple times in an attempt to stop her from stealing America’s powers.
America Chavez – Hufflepuff
A teenage girl who has traveled through dozens of universes, America wants to be left alone. However, her unique power meant that she was hunted across universes. Although she’s a reluctant hero at first, her loyalty to Earth-616’s Strange caused her to embrace her power and send Wanda to Earth-838 so she could face up to the monster she really became. America’s loyalty combined with her strong sense of justice makes her a Hufflepuff.
Earth-838’s Christine Palmer – Ravenclaw
Both Earth-616’s and Earth-838’s Christine Palmer are incredibly intelligent. Earth-616’s Christine was an emergency surgeon, while Earth-838’s Christine was a research scientist who studied multiversal research. We see more of Earth-838’s Christine than Earth-616’s in this movie. Earth-616’s Christine uses her knowledge to help Strange and America get away from Wanda and get to the Book of Vishanti.
Earth-838’s Karl Mordo – Slytherin
Like Earth-616’s Mordo, Earth-838’s is manipulative and clever. He takes advantage of Strange’s and America’s trust by drugging and imprisoning them, all out of a mistaken belief in Strange’s character and motives. He also used his influence over the Illuminati to try to push his own agenda to kill Strange. His cunning nature puts him in Slytherin.
