Giovanni "John" Zatara was a powerful magician and superhero in the mid-to-late 20th century.

He was also the father of another magical icon Zatanna Zatara and the mentor to Nick Necro.

After becoming so powerful with the magical arts, Zatara and three of his old magic companions became the founding members of the insidious organization called the Cult of the Cold Flame, a cult they created to organize an army of magic users.[1] Despite his involvement with such an evil organization, Zatara remained on good enough terms with his daughter and her friend John Constantine until Zatara was accidentally killed by Constantine while they worked together to fight a magical presence.[2]
