The question in the title comes from a fortune cookie that Strange enjoys after a quiet dinner alone. He returned to the Sanctum Sanctorum to find Wong missing and went in search of him at the Temple of Ganesha, where Wong once trained as a warrior monk. His investigation lead him to yet another realm, this one filled with undead oarsmen, massive sea serpents, and perhaps the most dangerous denizen of them all, the life-absorbing Electra. She not only seemed to be able to control everything there, but also the shining city of Ditkopolis (named in tribute to classic creator Steve Ditko).
Stephen agreed to help Electra in exchange for Wong's safety. She explained that her father had granted his magic to her sister Celeste which lead to the slow death of the city itself. She wanted the Sorcerer Supreme to help transfer that power to her. While there, Strange learned a bit more about the sisters and how a fallen angel came between them. Though Ditkopolis and its surroundings offered plenty of grotesqueries, the worst of the bad bunch came from a person craving unearned love and power. Even when faced with the clear truth, Electra could not accept it and lashed out, wanting to take everyone down with her into the sucking void.
