Chapter 22: The Astral Plane
BACK AT DR. STRANGE'S SANCTUM SANCTORUM...
DR. STRANGE: Guys, you know I have all the respect in the world for Reed and his knowledge, but something tells me that science doesn't have all the answers this time.
NAMOR: What are you suggesting, Steve?
DR. STRANGE: We must voyage...to the Astral Plane!
SILVER SURFER: The Astral Plane? What are you talking about?
DR. STRANGE: You'll see for yourself, Norrin, because you're coming with me!
DR. STRANGE: My cloak will serve as the anchor to this realm. I will conjure Astral projections of Norrin and me; Namor, you keep the Monad safe. Our bodies will be here, but our consciousnesses will...not. Hopefully, we will return with some answers. But you must protect the Monad, as well as our physical vessels.
DR. STRANGE: By the ancient charms of the Vishanti, enable us to leave these mortal forms that we may visit...the Astral Plane....
DR. STRANGE: The spell has worked! Remain vigilant, Namor, Norrin and I shall return, and hopefully with some answers.
SILVER SURFER: Will--will our bodies be safe?
DR. STRANGE: They are still vulnerable, as is all mortal matter. But you must let go of connection to the physical world and allow yourself to travel...
DR. STRANGE: ...to a world less material.
SILVER SURFER: Whoa.
DR. STRANGE: Yeah, pretty sweet, huh? But getting here is only half of it...now we need to look for answers.
