I know jack about Doctor Strange, so I can't comment on the controversy that Straczynski is "ruining" his origin.

The general impression here is one of pointlessness. The additions and changes dont bring any new insight to the character, and Im hard pressed to see why this should replace previous versions of the characters origins.
