And really that's an idea they can expand on, since I've only seen one episode of Doctor Who use magic/sorcery and that explanation was given very briefly. So Marvel could really own that idea in pop culture.
I'm kind of partial to the old Marvel Adventure Game model, myself, though its a little like that, just with added "and you can get a lot of leverage out of the most basic mystical awareness, as long as your willing to basically use it to telephone some greater being and sell your soul to it for favors."
