"Here it is, in the future you and I have been enemies for years. There have been others, of course. There's Thawne, Zoom, DeVoe, but none of them hurt you like Savitar. He truly broke you. I have to be honest, I always was a bit jealous. But now, it's like I get to kill her too."
—Abra Kadabra to Barry Allen

Abra Kadabra was a criminal time traveler from the 64th century. He had outfitted his body with futuristic nanotechnology which allowed him to have a range of abilities that were almost indistinguishable from magic and sorcery in the 21st century.

He claimed that he and Barry Allen were old enemies in his future and also claimed to know the true identity of Savitar. He was put on execution when he got back to Earth Nineteen.

Biography

Early life

The man later known as Abra Kadabra was born at some point in the 64th century. At some point he outfitted his body with advanced nanotechnology which allowed him to possess a range of abilities that most people in the 21st century would perceive as magic. Adopting the name "Abra Kadabra", he became a criminal exploiting time travel and breaching for his own personal gain, primarily in the 21st century.[1]

At some point after 2017 Abra Kadabra came into contact with Barry Allen/The Flash and had several encounters with the Scarlet Speedster that left Abra Kadabra with a bitter hatred of him. He came to learn much about Barry's personal life including his relationship with Iris West and her death on May 23rd 2017 at the hands of his supposed greatest enemy, his corrupt temporal duplicate Barry Allen/Savitar. He also became aware of his other enemies, such as Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash, Hunter Zolomon/Zoom and DeVoe. He also claimed to know Savitar's true identity.[1]

During his exploits, Abra Kadabra sought to return to his time and began traveling through the multiverse to obtain the technologies needed to return to the 64th century of Earth One. During his quest Earth Nineteen in the year 2014 and killed several people in his pursuits, including the partner (in both the professional and romantic sense) of Gypsy before fleeing to another Earth.[1]

Central City 2017

Abra Kadabra appeared in Central City to steal some more tech to build himself a way to get back to his own time. At the first tech company he infiltrated, he was confronted by two guards who he trapped in a vat and then had it fill with water so that they would drown. At his second robbery, he was confronted by the Flash. He had expected to run into the speedster but was thrown to see him look much younger than he was used to. He revealed that he knew his identity and that he knew that Barry was dealing with the impending death of his love Iris. When Barry asked what he knew about Savitar, he told him that he knew everything. Barry rushed to take him but yanked away a phony arm before Abra Kadabra moved to escape. However, Gypsy appeared through a breach and attacked. He quickly created a shower of cards to cover his teleporting escape.[1]

He then went to Star Labs where he incapacitated both Julian Albert and Joe West. Before he could kill any of them, he was quickly apprehended by Barry and Abra Kadabra quickly told him that he could tell him everything he knew about Savitar, in particular his true name. He was thrown into the pipeline as Barry and the West family asked him what he knew about Savitar. Abra Kadabra gave them some trivial information about what he would do in the future but wouldn't reveal Savitar's name for free. In exchange for the information, he wanted his freedom as he knew Gypsy would take him back to Earth Nineteen for execution. Later, he was visited again by Joe, who wanted to take the deal in order to save his daughter's life. He opened the door and held Abra Kadabra at gun point. Just as Abra was about to tell him Savitar's name, Gypsy interrupted and he used the distraction to escape. He then went to Dr. Wells' Time Vault and stole a power source in order to complete his time machine. Before he could leave, he was confronted by Team Flash and Gypsy and he set off a bomb to escape, seriously injuring Caitlin Snow.[1]

Before he could leave 2017, he was pursued by Barry and Wally with Gypsy and Cisco moving to cut off his escape attempts. He managed to open a wormhole but before he could fly into it, Barry crashed through the window of his ship and pulled him out and he watched in despair as the ship returned to the future without him. As Gypsy was taking him back to Earth Nineteen for trial and execution, he was confronted again by Barry. He tried to appeal to any sense of humanity that Abra Kadabra had to get him to tell him who Savitar was. Abra merely smiled and told him that all through Barry's life, he had a slew of enemies including himself, though none managed to truly break him save for Savitar by taking the one thing he really cared about. He admitted that he was jealous of the godly speedster for that feat, but now, denying him the information, it made him feel like he took Iris from Barry as well. He was then taken away by Gypsy to the breach for Earth Nineteen.
