Real Name: Zatanna Zatara
Search for 'Zatanna (DC)' on Amazon
Zatanna's powers of magic are almost limitless, making her one of, if not the, most powerful members of the Justice League. She can use her magic to heal herself or others, command the elemental forces of earth, wind, fire and water, transmute objects into different forms, attack opponents with blasts of energy, transport herself and others across the planet, and erase or alter a person's memories. She has completely rebuilt Metropolis from ruins, used her powers to merge Aquaman's spirit with all the oceans of Earth, and even manipulated the space/time continuum.
Most of Zatanna's magic is cast by verbalizing the nature of her magic backwards (for example, for her to teleport herself, she would speak the word "tropelet"). This often leads to Zatanna being gagged to prevent her from vocalizing a spell. However, even when she was shot in the throat by the Joker and unable to speak, she was able to write a healing spell with her own blood and cast it that way, proving that preventing her from speaking is not absolute proof against her magic.
Zatanna was created by Gardner Fox and Murphy Anderson.
