I am thrilled to welcome you back to the Girl Power! edition of the DCU Book Club (DCUBC)! Once a month, taking the place of a week of our regular book club, we focus on the wonderful ladies of the DCU. Whether they are heroes or villains, Girl Power! selections are all about them.
This month, we are enchanted by ZATANNA ZATARA! Here’s a brief introduction to our leading lady. The excerpts below are from the DCU Encyclopedia Zatanna .
Zatanna’s first appearance is in Hawkman #4, 1964.
“It’s not often that the “day” and “night” jobs of a DC Super Hero line up perfectly, but for Zatanna Zatara that’s exactly the case. A skilled performer, Zatanna works as a famous stage magician. But when she’s not entertaining, she works as a real magician, performing impossible feats to save the world…
Half human and half Homo Magi, Zatanna is able to cast magical spells by saying any phrase backward.”
She’s affiliated with:
• Justice League of America
• Justice League Dark
• Sentinels of Magic
• Seven Soldiers of Victory
