Zatanna Zatara

Welcome back my wonderful people to Women of DC Wednesday. Today's lucky woman is a close friend of Batman and a has a magical touch. (lol) I know I seem to say every week that each character is my favorite...but she's another favorite I've added to the list. Shoot me I have a lot of favorites. :-p you go guys Zatanna.

A member of the Homo Magic race, Zatanna Zatara is the daughter of famed magaician Giovannit “John” Zatara and Sindella. Zatanna is a direct decendant of the artist and magician Leonardo da Vinci and is also related to Nostradamus, Alessando Cagliostro, Nicholas Flamel, Evan Fulcanelli and Lord Arion of Atlantis.

Before she discovered her true magical powers while investigating the disappearance of her father, Zatanna was a successful stage illusionist. She was successfully reunited with him with the help of the Batman, The Atom, Elongated Man and others. Unfortunately, their time together was cut short due to the death of both of her parents, on separate occasions, while trying to save her life.

Before being elected to full membership of the Justice League of America, Zatanna assisted them with a number of cases proving herself worthy of the team. During her time with the JLA her powers levels had diminished briefly allowing her to only control the four elements: Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water. After a while her powers were fully restored due to unknown causes. Deciding that her father's style of magic wasn't her cup of tea, she then decided to explore her mothers mystical heritage.

If you've read “Identity Crisis” which I highly recommend you read, lol, you all know Zatanna was apart of the incident that happened when they caught Dr. Light. Zatanna used her magic to screw around in Dr. Lights mind a little bit to erase a tragic memory that involved Sue Dibny. She also erased Batman's memory after he tried to stop them from what they doing to Dr. Light.

Batman and Zatanna were very close, childhood friends even, until he found out what she had done to him. This led to him distrusting her and his other friends in the super hero community. Over time their relationship began to re kindle and he came to her when he needed help and even gave her the nickname Zee.

Zatanna departed from the JLA and continued her stage career and her vocation as a defender against mystical threats, becoming a member of the Sentinels of Magic. Currently Zatanna is a reserve member of the Justice League aiding them from time to time when her magical expertise is needed. Feeling a need to take a break from heroics she declined a full membership to the JLA. But she still serves as a regular guardian against mystical threats.

And there you have it folks Ms. Zatanna "Zee" Zatara. Catch you all next week.
