Kalora! It's MARVELO, Monarch of Magicians!!

Marvelo, Monarch of Magicians was...well, a magician! He had the power to do just about anything that the story required by shouting "Kalora!"

Created by Fred Guardineer (who also created Zatara Master Magician for DC Comics and Tor the Magic Master for Quality, anyone else sense a pattern...?), Marvelo appeared in BIG SHOT COMICS #1-20 (May 1940-Dec 1941), and THE FACE #1 (1941).

  1. Don't know 'bout this “Kalora” business, but everybody knows that the spell has to be spoken backwards to work. So this was just lame.

  2. Interesting blog and I really like your work and must appreciate you work for the superheros well done and keep it up.
