Real Name: Abhararakadhararbarakh
Search for 'Abra Kadabra (DC)' on Amazon


Bio:
Abra Kadabra is from the 64th century, at a time when science has made stage magic obsolete. However, he wants a career as a performing magician, so he goes back in time to find an audience to entertain and soon clashes with the Flash (Barry Allen). His "magic" is actually based on advanced technology, disguised with supernatural trappings.

One of his more heinous acts is kidnapping Linda Park, the girlfriend of Wally West (Barry Allen's protege and successor), during their wedding and erasing her from history, though he is ultimately defeated. He also tricks five rogues into selling their souls to Neron so he can gain real magic powers.

Abra Kadabra makes an appearance in The Flash:The Fastest Man Alive #7 (Feb 2007), attempting to steal a vault filled with precious diamonds. Kadabra is carrying out a performance in Los Angeles (Bart Allen's town) for a fresh start when he tried to commit the robbery; his actions are foiled by the only man "faster than 64th century tech."

Abra Kadabra is mentioned in Neil Gaiman's Books of Magic miniseries. In the fourth issue Timothy Hunter, escorted by Mister E, visits the 64th century, described by E as a time when the differences between magic and technology have become blurred. The inhabitants tell them they have selected their "date-line" to send the "Madchild Abhararakadhararbarakh". Timothy Hunter responds "Abracadabra?" and Mister E tells him not to talk to the inhabitants of this time, and so they then continue their path into the future.

One Year Later, he and several other Rogues are approached by Inertia with a plan to kill the Flash (then Bart Allen). Though Inertia is defeated, Kadabra and the other Rogues successfully beat Bart to death, though not before Kadabra recognizes that Bart is too young to be the Flash they are used to dealing with.
