Powers and Abilities


  • Master Sorcerer: Mordo is one of the most powerful members of the Masters of the Mystic Arts, possessing a considerable mastery of the mystic arts, which he uses to defend his native reality. With the help of numerous mystical artifacts and relics, in addition to his astral powers, Mordo is able to gain access to a multitude of mystical powers.
    • Eldritch Magic Manipulation: Mordo is able to create, shape and manipulate Eldritch Magic.
    • Teleportation: Using a Sling Ring, Mordo is able to open a fiery portal to another location, gaining ability to move tremendous distances instantaneously.
    • Interdimensional Travel: Using a Sling Ring, Mordo can travel between different dimensions and universes, crossing over different planes of existence or travelling across various forms of reality.
    • Power Absorption: After leaving the Masters of the Mystic Arts, Mordo demonstrated being able to strip sorcerers of magic and rob them of their abilities, notably performing this on Jonathan Pangborn, who channeled magically derived power to move his body despite being paraplegic. Mordo grabbed Pangborn's torso and summoned his magic in the form of a yellow, flame-like energy from the man's body, which instantly left Jonathan paralyzed once again.


  • Expert Hand-to-hand Combatant/Martial Artist: Mordo is a highly skilled martial artist, in both armed and hand-to-hand combat. He single-handedly defeated three Nepalese thugs, as well as later besting Stephen Strange in a sparring session.
