"Doctor Strange's death has hurled our entire reality into all-out war and chaos. Magical invaders from countless dimensions descend on Earth. One such threat will change the life of Ami Han (AKA White Fox) in a huge way," Marvel editor Tom Groneman said when Death of Doctor Strange: White Fox was announced. 

"White Fox is the last of her kind, the last of the magical, shape-shifting beings known as Kumiho. Her family, the other Kumiho -- they're long gone. No one else on Earth knows what it's like to be the White Fox… until now."

According to Marvel, a series of "brutal killings" in Seoul paints White Fox as the only possible suspect.

"The attack… the killings…they're connected to Ami's mysterious past and to the Sorcerer Supreme," Groneman continued. "Stopping them and finding the answers to her many questions about her past will change the future of the White Fox forever."

This is Wong's second outing with White Fox, after 2019's Future Fight Firsts: White Fox (opens in new tab) - which established the character's full origin for the first time. Wong also worked with Tong on the recent The Legend of Shang-Chi (opens in new tab) one-shot.

"I love White Fox and I'm excited to be writing her again, especially for the Death of Doctor Strange!" Wong said. "One of my first Marvel stories was Future Fight Firsts: White Fox, a one-shot about Ami Han's origin story, so this feels like coming home."

In addition to featuring White Fox (and possibly a flashback to include Doctor Strange), the book will feature Fox's team Tiger Division, the new Agents of Atlas line-up, and Sword Master.

The mystery of who killed Doctor Strange hasn't been revealed in comics yet, but Marvel might have given away the end of the event accidentally.
