There are have been a number of alternative versions of Doctor Strange, but these are all considered as a single character when they are simply different versions of the same Stephen Strange. For example, when Earth was remade by the "Creators" in Doctor Strange (vol. 2) #s 25-27 (http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/cretrs.htm#drst), Doctor Strange appeared as a humanoid warthog, wearing his traditional garb and having the same powers and mystic abilities. But this warthog version of the character (dubbed "Doctor Stranger Yet") was not truly an "uplifted animal" nor was it truly a different character. It was simply Doctor Strange, remade by the powerful Creators.
