Physical Appearance


Powers and Abilities





  • In Archie Comics, Ambrose made his first appearance in #77 Sabrina the Teenage Witch series of 1971. In this iteration, Cousin Ambrose is a middle-aged, plump man with black hair and mustache, described as "Sabrina's warlock cousin who has an acute sense of fashion and showmanship – or at least thinks he does."
  • Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa reimagined him as a much younger, witty and sinister character in the 2014 Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic series after he had been written off from the 90s sitcom. Without a sarcastic sidekick in the sitcom, that role shifted to Salem Saberhagen, Sabrina's familiar cat.
  • In the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic series, Ambrose stated that he prefers the term "warlock" when Sabrina addressed him as "witch-boy" but in both series, he's still generally addressed to as a witch.
