Ed's Notes: Why do so many people keep saying that DC Heroes under-powers their Sorcerer characters?  Take Zatanna... In a given round, she could use 10 AP's Earth Control to throw up a defensive wall, 12 AP's of Sorcery for Dispersal, taking NO Spiritual damage, and then attack with (for example) Air Control.  Grated she only has an AV/EV of 10/10 (which  is still not that bad) but her OV/RV would be 18/27!  I think she'd win THAT war of attrition!

2nd Edition sources list her Wealth as 4, her Spirit as 11 and the B/R Book omits her JLA Connection (High). They also mention a brief time in which she lost her Sorcery Power but gained it back.

BTW... How does she NOT have a Connection (High) to Zatara the Magician?!

First Appearance: Hawkman #4 (November, 1964)


  1. She should have the Thief skill (as least Escape Artist and Slight of Hand/Pickpocket). She doesn't have the connection with Zatara b/c he is deceased. That doesn't stop him from showing up occasionally though.

  2. In my humble opinion, she also needs Attractive :)

  3. Shouldn't she also need the drawback of "Public Identity"? Isn't she well known as being a stage magician as well.
