Fridge: Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler
  • Fridge Logic: Mabuse fails the first time he tries to hypnotize Von Wenk. Why does he succeed the second time?
  • "M'abuse" is French for "I hurt myself" (roughly). So it's been suggested that his name implies that his downfall is part of his nature-that what might be taken as Bond Villain Stupidity is his underlying desire to get caught.
