Golden Age Origin

Merlin, the Boy Magician was a simple stage performer who used illusions rather than true magic. He was an expert at ventriloquism and pulling things out of his sleves, such as a flock of doves. However, it was eventually revealed that he was a descendant of the original Merlin, and once he gained possession of a magic medallion once worn by Merlin, he gained access to nearly unlimited power. Merlin had a hispanic friend named Pancho. His nemesis was a man named Professor Morgan Le Faye, who wanted the Medallion for himself.
