Seven Soldiers: Zatanna

    (DC, 2005)
™ and © DC Comics, Inc.

The daughter of Golden Age magician/crimefighter Zatara, Zatanna has been a major player in the DC Universe since the 1960s. In this limited series that will lead up to Seven Soldiers no. 1, she has joined a therapy group for failed super-heroes because she’s addicted to spells—well, the casting of them, and when the chips are down, her mystical efforts to save humanity always seem to result in the deaths of those closest to her.

Now, she may have unleashed an unstoppable force hell-bent on destroying mankind. So, what’s the DCU’s resident fishnets-and-top-hat-wearing sorceress to do? Take on an apprentice, of course!

Writer Grant Morrison’s spin on Zatanna seems to be something akin to a magic-using Ally McBeal; there’s a neurotic slant to her that a pupil just may help to expunge in time for the big bad that’s coming down the pike.
