Justice League redesigns, part 10 of 12.
Having asked you all pick your favourite Justice League members from a selective list, Zatanna placed third overall. Out of 94 votes, she received 11.
Zatanna Zatara would readily admit to being a Daddy's Girl. Growing up watching his stage shows, Zatanna was inspired by his theatrics and pursued a career all her own on the stage. After the death of her parents, she took it upon herself to be their mystic successor and has become one of the world's most powerful sorcerers but also continues her father's legacy as a magician. When she and gal pal Dinah Lance (AKA Black Canary) aren't shopping on Fifth Avenue or scoping out Zatanna's competition on Broadway, they're fighting crime on the Justice League. She's since become close friends with the other female League members as well as Martian Manhunter. She also enjoys indulging in some seemingly harmless flirting with Batman as she sees it as an exercise in poking fun at his sullen demeanour which she understands to be an act. After all, it takes a performer to know a performer.
Zatanna is another tough character to design due to the fact that her sexy magician outfit is so synonymous with her character. As such, I really wanted to pay homage to that but really rework it into something a little more heroic. That meant eliminating the jacket and really reshaping everything into being a bodice with a lot of structure. It references her stage costume but it's obviously not the same. I accessorized her look with some crisp white gloves, a silver medallion with a 'Z' on it (an heirloom from her father) and a pair of moon and star earrings (a gift from her mother). Naturally, I had to toss in a rabbit. Why not, right?
