My years of devotion to the dark arts have made me strong. Stronger then you!
~ Baron Mordo to Doctor Strange.
Yes, Master Dormammu. I am yours to command.
~ Baron Mordo obeying Dormammu.
This is for meddling in my affairs!
~ Baron Mordo before fighting Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Venom.

Baron Mordo is a recurring antagonist in Spider-Man: The Animated Series as an enemy of Spider-Man and his ally, Dr. Strange. He was a sorcerer who specialized in dark magic, and would use his powers to try to release the demonic entity known as Dormammu from the Dark Dimension.

He was voiced by the late Tony Jay, who also voiced Galactus in the Marvel Animated Universe, Shere Khan in The Jungle Book 2 and Talespin, Monsieur D'Arque in Beauty and the Beast, and Judge Claude Frollo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Biography

A former student of the Ancient One, he attempted to overthrow him. However, Stephen Strange discovered his plan and attempted to warn the Ancient One, but Mordo used a spell to silence him. Fortunately, the Ancient One already knew of Mordo's plan and effortlessly stopped it, banishing Mordo from his tutelage and taking Strange on as his apprentice. Mordo went onto become high priest of the Dread Dormammu whom he seeks to release from the Dark Dimension. He controls a cult of worshipers, whom he keeps under his control by casting illusions that delude them into believing that they are being reunited with loved ones-holding them at his lair, referred to as the Center for Reunification.

Mordo pursues the powerful Wand of Watoomb, brainwashing Mary-Jane Watson into becoming a member of his cult, showing her visions of her father. When Peter Parker comes to rescue her, Mordo brainwashes him by showing him visions of his deceased parents. He then sends his puppets, including Peter to raid Strange's temple and bring him the Wand of Watoomb. Using his Spider-Powers, Spider-Man overwhelms and his assistant Woo with the help of the other cultists. Mary-Jane makes off with the Wand but Strange captures Spider-Man and releases him from Mordo's mind-control.

They then go to Mordo's temple where he is using the Wand in a ritual to open a portal to the Dark Dimension. Spider-Man gets the Wand off Mordo whilst Woo fights off the cultists. Mordo attacks Strange but proves no match for him. He pleads with Dormammu for help and Dormammu sends his servant some of his own powers from beyond the portal. Spider-Man jumps through the portal to fight Dormammu and is joined by Strange. They retrieve the Wand from Dormammu and escape, by which time Mordo has fled.

However, Mordo would not give up in bringing his master into Earth. Under Dormammu’s orders, Mordo started a technology company under the name of Ardon Broom (an anagram for Baron Mordo) which would supply Stark Industries with a device called the Inter-Dimensional Probe. This technology could open portals to other dimensions, which could in turn bring Dormammu  to Earth. He then broke into Stark Industries and used a computer to bring the John Jameson Probe back to Earth. His reason for doing was because the probe had the Venom symbiote attached to it, back when Spiderman trapped it there before it went into space. Mordo’s plan was to bring the symbiote back to Eddie Brock so he could bond with it, and retrieve the Inter-Dimensional Probe from Stark Industries.

The plan is a success and the probe lands in a park, where the Venom symbiote (as well as it’s offspring, the Carnage symbiote) attack a young couple who witness it’s landing. Mordo uses his power of astral projection to speak with Eddie Brock at the Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane, where he informs Brock that he can have to chance to bond with the symbiote again, in exchange for vowing permanent service to Dormammu. Brock agrees.

Mordo uses his powers to hypnotizes the young woman who witnessed the probe’s landing to bond with the Venom symbiote, and visit Eddie at the Asylum. The symbiote then bonds with Eddie and he is now Venom again. He escapes the Asylum and speaks with Dormammu in Mordo's lair. The demon tells Eddie how they were able to get the symbiote back, and orders him to get the Inter-Dimensional Probe.

Once Mordo arrives at Star Industries, he witnesses Venom’s struggle to get the probe back as he is fighting Spiderman and War Machine. Worried about Venom possibly failing, Dormammu informs him about Venom’s spawn, Carnage, much to Mordo’s surprise. Realizing that the symbiote must bond with someone as “fanatical” as Brock, Mordor rembers his conversation with Eddie in his cell, in which Cletus Kasady (who was in the cell next to Eddie) begged Mordo for the symbiote instead.

Mordo once again uses powers to hypnotize the young woman’s boyfriend into bonding with the Carnage symbiote. The man breaks into the Institute and arrives at Kasady’s cell. Mordo uses his astral form to make the same deal with Kasady that he had Brock, in which he would have to serve Doromammu forever in exchange for the symbiote. Kasady agrees and bonds with Carnage. He then escapes  from his cell and arrives at Stark Industries to retrieve the Probe.

Once Carnage arrives to help Venom go against Spideman and War Machine, the two engage in a fight over who kills Spiderman, and Mordo has to break them up. They take the Probe and bring it to Mordo’s lair. Venom and Carnage attempt to kill each other once last time, but are interrupted by Dormammu, who tells them that he needs an equal amount of life force to replace himself once he leaves his dimension. Venom departs due to feeling he has repaid his debt.  Carnage tries to drag Venom back, but is stopped by Dormammu who tells him he longer needs Venom now that he has him. Dormmanu then gives Carnage the power to drain souls from others, so he may put those souls into a urn that will be used to replace him in his dimension.

Carnage manages to drain a few people and returns to the lair. After he drains the souls into the urn, Mordo tells him he needs more. Carnage goes back to New York City and follows through with his task, where he drains life from Venom’s love interest, Dr. Ashley Kafka. He and Mordo take her body once Mordo teleports them back to Mordo’s lair.

Once Carnage drains the remaining souls into the urn, Spiderman, Iron Man, and Venom ambush them and they engage in a fight. Mordo orders Carnage to throw the urn into the portal to Dromammu’s dimension. Once he does so, Dormammu is freed. As they engage further in their battle, Spiderman is able to send Dormammu back into his portal, thus allowing all souls to return to their bodies, including that of Ahley Kafka's. In order to seal the portal completely, they send in Carnage to his connection made between him and Dormammu, but not before the latter tries to drag Ashley with him. Venom frees her and allows Carnage to take him instead. As they are all sucked in, the portal is sealed. However, Mordo escapes and is never seen again.

Quotes

Good, child. This institution's purpose is to make you contempt and fulfilled.
~ Baron Mordo to Mary Jane.
Mary Jane arrived seeking the truth about her father. She has found it and found him! Why would you deny her such fulfillment? Isn't that what were all longing for? After all isn't there someone with whom you want to be reunited? Ah, yes. Of course there is.

My children our time is at hand. We must dispel our enemies. Listen to my words. You are the army of Dormammu. You must recover the Wand of Watoomb! Let nothing not even your own destruction stand in the way.
