   Magica De Spell


Ever since Magica for the very first time, walked into Scrooges office in 1961, Scrooges first dime has been in the utmost danger. The reason for this is that Magica all the time tries to steal the dime in order to melt it, and create an amulet that she expects will make her the richest person in the world.

In Of Ducks, Dimes and Destinies from 1991 Don Rosa shows that the very first meeting between Magica and Scrooge took place in Glasgow in 1877 at the moment Scrooge earned his first coin. This happened because Magica used a time candle to go back in time.

When it comes to the question if Magica is a witch or a sorceress Don Rosa says: "I (and Egmont-editor Byron Erickson) regard Magica as a totally normal "human being" who dabbles in sorcery using spells and potions, but has no supernatural abilities of her own without such tools. That was Barks' original version."
