In these days where the undead seem to shamble all over the place, we might forget the origins of the word "zombie." Originally, the term referred to an individual resurrected from the dead, either in body or soul, for the specific purpose of serving a practitioner of some form of witchcraft associated with voodoo. These themes crept back into the public consciousness in the ‘70s including the presence of Brother Voodoo, who materialized in 1973's STRANGE TALES #169.
Initially a psychologist, Jericho Drumm delved into the mystic arts after his Houngan brother Daniel died. Jericho became an important part of the supernatural corners of the Marvel Universe, joined the Avengers, became the Sorcerer Supreme for a while, and upgraded his title to Doctor Voodoo. Doctor Voodoo’s story continues in AVENGERS: NO ROAD HOME and SAVAGE AVENGERS.
