Personality

Zee is a stickler for rules. Zatanna could, but not always be bragging about herself, but really she is a good, helpful, and loyal friend. She can lose her temper when nobody likes her magic acts, her temper can get the best of her and make her explode by sometimes making a spell go wrong as shown in "Tough Crowd." She can be a bit selfish, jealous, and snooty as shown in "Fresh Princess of Ren Faire."she has a dark magic and lived in fear of it,worrying it may hurt the people she loved,but with a little pep talk from raven she made peace with her darkness.

History

As explained in "Abracadabrapalooza," Zee and her father, Giovanni Zatara would travel cross country performing basic magic tricks from fairs to birthday parties in order to get their act off the ground and while they didn't get their big break, Zee loves performing with her father. One morning, Zee wakes up (while not noticing she's performing magic) and discovered a mysterious pink dot on her nose, thinking it was a pimple but when she tried to cover it, it disappeared and more dots started to reappear, causing her to hide it from her father.

During her trip, Zee began to unintentionally use magic such as pulling a coin out of a kid's ear, only to cause the ear to release an unlimited supply of coin, teleporting in and out while talking to a young boy, talking backwards while getting a burger, which caused the burgers and fries to fly out to the counter towards her and even more uncontrollable magic occurs while still trying to hide it from her father.

Later during practice, Zee discovered that she and her father were invited to be in "Abracadabrapalooza", a big show for magic. However, on the night of the event, Zee told her dad she wasn't going to perform, causing her father to be sad upon hearing that. After he left, Zee began to experience more uncontrollable magic, causing her father to burst in and discover the truth, only to discover that he's also magic and was proud that she got her powers too. After been given a chest containing a book that will allow her to control her magic, Zee and her father perform and was discovered on stage by a bookie, where after traveling the world performing magic, Zee's Father was hired to work at the casino/hotel in Metropolis, thus starting a new life in the city.

Zee's very first paid performance as a solo magician is depicted in the episode "Adventures in Bunnysitting". She performs magic at a children’s birthday party in front of a crowd of three children at a park. The performance is interrupted when the spawn of the magical bunnies floods the park. At first Zee and Kara, who was supposed to watch the bunnies and keep them apart, sweep the spawn into Zee's top hat and make them disappear, but more and more keep flooding in. Zee casts a hate spell, but this turns the flood of bunny spawn into a giant bunny monster made up of individual bunny spawn. Kara is eaten by the giant bunny monster but flies out with the two magical bunnies in her hands and breaks the bunnies from their embrace, making all their spawn disappear.

Appearances Throughout the Franchise

Trivia

  • Unlike her other incarnations, "Zatanna" is used as a codename, while "Zee" substitutes for it as her real name. Something unusual, since Zatanna is the real name of the heroine, while Zee is her nickname.
  • She was the last member of the Super Hero Girls who has encountered Batman.
  • Zatanna is the most powerful member of the Super Hero Girls in the series.
  • This is the second version of the character to be a teenager and in turn the second to show both parents alive; the first of her being her incarnation of Young Justice.
    • In fact, Young Justice's Zatanna was the biggest influence for the personality and background of this interaction.
    • Nevertheless, what makes her different from her Young Justice counterpart is that her mother abandoned her and her father when she was younger.
  • Concept art reveals that Zatanna was originally going to have her hair black and when she was a superhero it would turn blue. But this was changed to the purple and bright purpulish color seen in the series.
  • Zatanna's inner fears of becoming a dark version of herself are similar to those of Princess Luna from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
  • This version of the character seems to be bisexual, since in addition to being in love with Aquaman, in "MultipliciZee" two of her clones were seen drinking ice cream while looking at each other as if they were girlfriends. Even in the movie Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem in the Multiverse she felt awkward when Starfire from Teen Titans Go! fixedly stared at the Super Hero Girls with much glee.
    • If so, this would mean that she officialy is the only member of the Super Hero Girls to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
