Swirlin the Magician was a wizard who lived in England on Earth-C in the time of King Oscar and his knights.

Swirlin often aided the king with his knowledge of both magic and science.


  • Magic: Swirlin knew a variety of magic spells, including teleportation and shapeshifting, often transforming himself into objects as varied as a block of ice, a bucket, or even a hole in the ground.


  • This version of Swirlin the Magician, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Swirlin is apparently human, despite hailing from Earth-C, as prior to Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew, Earth-C had not yet been established as a universe unto itself inhabited solely by anthropomorphic animals.
  • Swirlin is a parody of Merlin.
