Another awesome DC character is coming to The Flash. Today we have learned that ‘Ant-Man’ actor David Dastmalchian has been cast for the role of ‘Abra Kadabra‘. Check out more details on this below and let us know if you are excited for ‘Abra Kadabra‘ to appear on The Flash after the JUMP. The Flash airs Tuesday evenings at 7pm Central on the CW.
In his official character description, Abra Kadabra is called “a criminal from a distant future whose advanced technological powers seem like magic.” As such, “the time-traveling Abra Kadabra holds a secret the Flash will stop at nothing to uncover.”
Abra Kadabra made his DC Comics debut in 1962’s “The Flash” #128. In the comics, Citizen Abra hails from the 64th century, where technology has become so efficient that it has long since phased out magic. Nevertheless, Abra dreams of being a stage magician, and so travels back to the 20th century in order to wow the “primitive” people of the time with technology disguised as magic. In his attempt to become famous, he clashes with the Flash, and the two become archenemies. Though magic does of course exist in the DC Universe, Abra has no magical powers to speak of.
