I hope you understand. The greatest threat to our universe... is you.
~ Mordo addressing Strange as a threat in his universe.
I'm sorry, Stephen. Your desecration of reality will not go unpunished.
~ Mordo to Strange.
I'm beginning to understand why your Mordo didn't like you very much!
~ Mordo, after Strange defeated him and left him behind in the pit.

Baron Karl Amadeus Mordo is the secondary antagonist of the 2022 Marvel Cinematic Universe film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He is a variant of Karl Mordo that became the Sorcerer Supreme of the Masters of the Mystic Arts after the death of the Doctor Strange from his world. Following this, he became a member of the Illuminati.

Upon meeting a Doctor Strange from another world and America Chavez, Mordo greeted them to his world before having them be imprisoned by the Illuminati, with the intention of having Strange be executed.

He is portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor, who also played his original counterpart, as well as Victor Sweet in Four Brothers, Luke in Children of Men and Scar in the live-action The Lion King remake.

Personality

Mordo initially presents himself as a humble and friendly person when he is introduced to the Doctor Strange of Earth-19999. He refers Strange as his brother, suggesting that he and his Strange had a bond that was familial in a way. However, this later proves to be a façade on his part, in order to trap Strange and America Chavez, and have them be imprisoned by the Illuminati.

Like the other members of the Illuminati, Mordo believes that any version of Strange could pose a potential threat to the multiverse and must be executed to prevent him from causing damage. Unlike the others, however, Mordo is unwilling to listen to any reasoning and is dead set on having Strange executed. For this reason, Strange believes that there is more to Mordo's motives than what he's initially leading. It is believed that Mordo had always envied his Strange, due his position as the Sorcerer Supreme and because of that, he played a role in his death so that he could become the next Sorcerer Supreme. Despite Mordo’s high intellect, he’s completely foolish just like his Mordo. Having complete delusions of grandeur between right and wrongs to save people.

Whether these claims are true or not is unknown but Mordo's anger and lack of refusal suggests he does not deny the possibility. His actions also suggest that he's an opportunist in this regard as he was willing to take the initiative of killing Strange while he was restrained and while the other members of the Illuminati were likely killed off by Wanda, writing himself as him making "the unanimous vote" in their position.
