Dr. Hammond: “You can’t do this, Michael. It’s too dangerous!” Morbius: “Try as I might, science has its limitations, Dr. Hammond. I know when it’s time to seek alternative methods.” Dr. Hammond: “But at what cost? You’re not a sorcerer. You’re not even a real vampire, so you have no ties to the mystic realm.” Morbius: “What does it matter as long as I can achieve the desired result?” Dr. Hammond: “This isn’t something you can control. I dare say magic of any kind is a cursed thing.” Morbius: “That’s why I have these—a rub of a page from the original Darkhold, the ancient book of spells written by the elder demon Chthon. Coupled with the Vaal Talisman I used to absorb Strange’s arcane knowledge, I can perform any deed imaginable. Now stay back while I summon the forces we need—and bend them to my will!” Morbius (cont’d): “Wait— Something’s wrong— I can’t stop it— Stay back— Stay back—!” Dr. Hammond: “Michael—!”
