Come from this?
This is a connection that I just made, and I'm kind of ashamed that I didn't notice it sooner. I just wanna know; did Stan Lee get the original idea for Mysterio (Spider-Man villain) from Flash's villain, Abra Kadabra? I mean, they are pretty similar in that they both debuted as villains who used technology to simulate magic. The only difference between the two I think is that Abra Kadabra gained actual magical powers at some point. Plus, I think Abra used future tech to stage full on attacks on Flash, while Mysterio used misdirection and special effects to trick Spider-Man. So did Abra inspire Mysterio? What do you think?
