It is always a good time when I learn about a fully-fleshed out character with a history, family tree, team affiliation, famous love-interest, and storyline. It is almost more of a mystery when a new character is discovered so late in the game I have to question why their existence hovered far below the radar that they flew dangerously close to obscurity.
Zatanna Zatara is one relatively unknown superhero from DC Comics, with affiliations to The Justice League Dark and a former lover of John Constantine. Her parents are Giovanni “John” Zatara and Sindella, a member of the Homo magi.
She is a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne (also known as Batman—wait, what?—due to the events of a retconned past). She also discusses the opportunity to have a deeper relationship with Bruce Wayne, which is given the kibosh due to Wayne’s commitment to justice. It is later revealed that Bruce Wayne keeps a file on Zatanna alone with with former romantic relationships on a Batcomputer.
Zatanna is a power sorceress. She is able to chant and recite spells backwards. In addition to her genetic powers, Zatanna is also a trained illusionist, a showgirl, and a stage magician that can use magical powers.
There needs to be more raven-haired vixens with magic powers showcased in DC Comics.
