Dormammu is the ruler of the Dark Dimension and one of the many foes of Doctor Strange. After he and his sister Umar killed their own father in their home realm, they were forced to flee to the Dark Dimension where they taught to its ruler King Olnar the ability to absorb universes into his dimension in exchange for a residence. However, Olnar was later killed by an Invasion of the Mindless One, which were defeated by Dormammu and Umar. Since there was no king left, Dormammu took the throne for himself and became more powerful than before.

Standard Equipment: The Flames of the Faltine
Intelligence: Supergenius according to the latest handbooks. Capable of outsmarting cosmic beings, with extreme knowledge of magic, and intimate knowledge of many magical realms and universes.
Weaknesses: His magical powers are weakened beyond the boundaries of the Dark Dimension such as in the main 616 universe. Time travelling exhausts him and he is unlikely to use it. He is also incredibly arrogant.
Disintegrated Eternity's substance while in his weakest incarnation (Strange Tales #146), and the very same Eternity supposedly had whole universes (Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #9) inside of him if we go the novelization of the events written by Sara Wolf according to Doctor Strange's own view of the abstract. The Low Multiversal effects and such status of that version of Eternity are also backed up by other sources, such as Kaluu being set free in a dimension/universe far away from the 616 (Strange Tales #148), and the battle causing a transdimensional holocaust (Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #23)
Given the absolutely massive inconsistencies of the character, both upwards and downwards, we decided to use an approximated average power level.
