What is the Darkhold? Let's talk about 'WandaVision's and 'Doctor Strange's Book of the Damned ...

The following article contains spoilers for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessnow having premiered and continuing to drop on Disney+ as of this week, we have all the knowledge that the mysterious book that was first introduced back in WandaVision played a key role in non only threatening the Marvel Cinematic Universe''s future, but also the very existence of the multiverse as we know it. The Darkhold, which Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) is seen exploring the pages of in the closer of WandaVision''s series finale while her

"That''s the book of the damned," Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) is the one who first explained Wanda''s detail while the two take a breather in between their magic-fueled fighting early in Wandavision''s "The Series Finale." Agatha begins by describing an entire section in this cursed book devoted to the Scarlet Witch, telling Wanda, "I''m not the author of the damned."

"The Scarlet Witch is not born, she is forged. She has no coven or need for incantation. Your power surpasses the power of the Sorcerer Supreme. Its your desire to destroy the world."

The Darkhold, which was created by Gerry Conway and artist Mike Ploog for Marvel Spotlight, is the work of the evil Elder God Chthon, who is basically Marvel''s Cthulhu. Many years ago, Chthon was fleeing from Demogorge, the God-Eater, naturally, leaving his thoughts behind on Earth in hopes of returning him one day. There are countless stories of the Darkhold that have been littered throughout Marvel history. At one point, Dracula

Wanda and Agatha both play a role in The Darkhold: Tales from the Book of Sins, and you should be confident that there is even some end-of-days prophetizing going on there, too. Issue #6, written by Chris Cooper and penciled by Richard Case, concludes with Agatha reciting this profoundly horrified bad boy of a prophecy from the Darkhold''s pages: "It becomes mother; then will the dark return begin." Wanda now

Wanda''s obsession with the Darkhold has caused some serious problems for her right down to the blackened fingertips that we discovered in WandaVision. In Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Wanda''s ultimate purpose, as described by Wanda herself, is to reunit with both of them, stealing America''s dimension-traveling powers (Xochitl Gomez) in order to complete her mission. In the movie, Wanda''s mind, however, says that it''s very reasonable and

However, when the Darkhold is destroyed at Kamar-Taj, Wong (Benedict Wong) confesses under the stress that the book itself is only a copy. The real Darkhold exists in a temple on Mount Wundagore, where the demon Chthon (remember that guy?) wrote his evil spells onto the walls of the fortress. The copies of the books were later later copied down into book forms, which means that at least one version of Dr. Strange, on Earth

Forbidden magic, according to Agatha''s mind, the Darkhold, which is rooted in other structures, works for him. Forbidden magic. Even if Strange finds the Darkhold on another platform, it appears to be suffering a few consequences for a brief period. (Third eye, anyone?)

Wanda Maximoff makes the choice to destroy the Darkhold not only the one used in Wundagore, but the whole whole of it. Given that we haven''t seen a body yet, it''s possible that the Scarlet Witch will not perform at any point in the future of the MCU, and as viewers know, sometimes even death can''t stop the character from making a comeback appearance. However, for the moment, the Darkhold appears to have been completely eliminated.
