Ed's Notes: DC's answer to the Mythbusters, if you crossed them with the Ghost Busters, J. Jonah Jameson and the Amazing Randi.  The really weird thing...? Because of how magic works, the "scientific" evidence he needs to disprove it always seems to be right where he needs it to be to "debunk" the existence of magic.  Also... Shaking your fist and yelling at the PHANTOM STRANGER?! Wow. He might be a wet blanket, but he's also pretty bad ass! 

One thing though... His disbelief in Magic, and his desire to debunk it and explain paranormal phenomena scientifically should be treated like a Catastrophic Irrational Attraction, I think.  Really, I think it should have be written up that way, unless it's meant to actually be stronger than a Catastrophic Irrational Attraction?!
