Boy Magician. Merlin, the Boy Magician, is a stage magician with a variety of skills, from ventriloquism to jiu-jitsu, and he uses these to fight crime. But when he comes into contact with the Sorcerer’s Medallion, which was formerly Merlin’s, he discovers that he is a direct descendant of Merlin, and that it is his destiny to fight Professor Le Fay. The Sorcerer’s Medallion grants wishes to whoever holds it, but Merlin, as a direct descendant of the historical Merlin, is immune to its power. Merlin is assisted by the racist stereotype Pancho.
