When did Stephen Strange take up residence in Glasgow and isn't he afraid of getting the all-seeing Eye of Agamotto caught on his chest hair?

The henchman wasn't based on Chris Claremont, and the mobster wasn't based on Stephen Strange. The mobster is a nod to Glasgow comic shop owner and comics historian John McShane (hence the club being called McShane), while the henchman Bobbie was based on one of McShane's staff at the time in the comic shop AKA.
