Interview With Uri Geller
(February 1998)

Uri Geller, the famed 'psychic' or psychic (it depends on if you believe him) appeared in an issue of Daredevil in the 70's and was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about it and his 'abilities'.

Kuljit Mithra: How is it best to describe your abilities?

Uri Geller: Paranormal, MindPower, supernatural.

Mithra: At what age did you sense you had these abilities and what were the events surrounding it?

Geller: I was four years old when a spoon bent and broke in my hand, I was sitting in my mothers kitchen. I was struck by a beam of light shortly before that, see 'My Story' - my book on the web site www.tcom.co.uk/hpnet/books.htm

Mithra: How do you convince people who do not believe you have 'powers'?

Geller: I usually never try to convince people who are closed-minded. In my opinion they have missed the boat.

Mithra: How do you defend yourself against allegations that you are a fraud?

Geller: If they attack me in an extremely vicious, libellous and defamatory way I turn it over to my attorneys.

Mithra: In the 70's, you made an appearance in Daredevil. How did this come about?

Geller: If I am not mistaken I met Stan Lee in New-York and that's how it started.

Mithra: Did you have any input into the story? If so, what elements?

Geller: To the best of my recollection I told them events that happened in my life. They probably used that as the basis for the story. As far as I know I am the only living person turned into a character for Daredevil comics. Correct me if I am wrong. [Note: Jann Wenner, editor of Rolling Stone magazine, appeared in issue 100 before Geller's appearance.]

Mithra: What kind of positive reaction did you receive from this appearance?

Geller: Hundreds of letters.

Mithra: Negative reaction?

Geller: One or two letters.

Mithra: Have you always been a comics fan? What are your favourite titles and characters?

Geller: Thor was my most beloved character.

Mithra: I got in contact with you through the Internet. Has this new medium helped you in 'spreading the word' about your organization?

Geller: The Internet is a great avenue for letting people know about paranormal events, books, general information, picture galleries, polls, games and press reports.

Mithra: Do you consider your abilities to be scientific or magical?

Geller: Magical in the old sense of the word.

Mithra: What are your future plans? Any new clients that require your services that you can discuss?

Geller: Read my biography on www.tcom.co.uk/hpnet/uribiog.htm. My projects on it are more or less up to date. I just completed my new novel Ella publication date 12th March 1998. I have just had a science fiction story published in the March issue of Interzone magazine funded by the Arts Council of England. In a few days it will be on my web site.
