Zatanna Zatara is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Gardner Fox and Murphy Anderson, and first appeared in Hawkman #4 (November 1964).
Zatanna is both a stage magician and an actual magician, like her father Giovanni "John" Zatara. As such she has many of her father's powers relating to magic, typically controlled by speaking the words of her incantations spelled backwards. She is known for her involvement with the Justice League and Justice League Dark. Zatanna made her first live-action appearance as a recurring character in the final three seasons of Smallville, portrayed by actress Serinda Swan.
