Quote:However, the increased use of such things gave me the distinct impression they were trying to make him younger than he had bee. That is more than a pet peeve with me.
You're right with that observation, but then just about all Marvel and Dc frontline characters have been slightly deaged over the last 15 years, Tony Stark and Peter Parker are noticably more youthful looking than in decades past for example, but this is the nature of the medium and the way entertainment in general has moved. Whether Doctor Strange should be deaged a few years like they have been is not all that important I feel, but the gray temples do form an important part of his visual appearance and serve to make him distinctive.
Being somewhat flexible where costume is concerned I can accept a different dress code for the Doctor, I am a fan of Mark Buckinghams work on the series in the mid 90s, but what balances out such a change is that it is still clearly Stephen Strange in this new costume - and that is why the gray temples are important - Identification and a distinctive look.
