  • DCAU fan-favorite writer Paul Dini wrote both of Zatanna's major appearances, and likes the character quite a lot. In 1998, Alan Burnett told Wizard Magazine: "Paul Dini wanted to use Zatanna because he's secretly in love with her. It's something we try not to talk about too much." Dini is married to magician Misty Lee.
