Aged Genghis is the a supporting character of Doctor Strange in the Marvel Comics universe.

The character, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, first appeared in Strange Tales #136 (September 1965).

In the context of the stories, shortly after the dawn of humanity, Genghis was given great power by the Vishanti. In return for this power, Genghis agreed to summon together the greatest mystics in the world for a tournament to discover the Sorcerer Supreme. His mind clears for one day every century to allow him to preside over a new contest. It is in this way that Doctor Strange became the Sorcerer Supreme.

Strange has sought assistance from Genghis on numerous occasions but seldom is he of any help. By gifting Strange with an ancient scroll purporting to contain a means to reach Eternity, Strange is instead stranded in the Netherworld of Eternal Doom. Later, Strange seeks out the help of the Aged Genghis against Baron Mordo and Dormammu.

The character has long been cared for as a guest at Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum. As well as being mentally fragile, Genghis is physically frail as well. No longer able to walk any distance Genghis levitates nearly all of the time.

    An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small,
    In blast-beruffled plume,
    Had chosen thus to fling his soul
    Upon the growing gloom.
