-- Zatanna src


Zatanna Zatara is the daughter of the master magician Zatara, one-time member of the All-Star Squadon. Zatanna's mother was believed to have died shortly after Zatanna's birth, forcing John Zatara to raise his daughter alone. Because of her lineage, she had some of her father's magical gifts. But her father's prominence made her the target of dark forces. A curse was placed on Zatara by one of his enemies so that Zatanna would die if he ever saw her again. And so her father left her. With him gone, she struggled through her childhood like so many of us did, only to find a family of sorts in the Justice League of America.

Zatanna's magical powers are limited. She generally needs a conduit to ground her magic. This is necessary for her ability to teleport as well. She has, at best, a fair amount of hand-to-hand combat knowledge. It's her talent for manipulating the odds int he Justice League's favor that makes her invaluable. [1]
