Mantor the Magician is an uninspired character with little to recommend him. He is a fez-wearing Mandrake the Magician lift, quite similar to Monako but lacking even the little spark of creativity which Monako had. It's no surprise that Mantor, who was never given an origin or background, lasted only one issue.
Like Monako and unlike Mandrake Mantor had real magical powers; Mandrake was of course limited to stage magic and hypnotism for most of his career.
