A to Z Challenge – SUPER cross stitch

Z is for Zatanna

Zatanna is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

She’s a magician both on stage and in real life. Like her father before her, Zatanna is a skilled and power magical user.

She’s one of the most powerful sorceresses in the DC universe, and she was born with the magical aptitude in her very blood.

Zatanna has always seemed like a woman of mystery and illusion. I’m a fan of magic, and I was definitely a fan of Zatanna as a little girl seeing her debut as an illusionist on Batman: The Animated Series.

Magic packs a punch!

She’s skilled as a stage magician, training with her sleight of hand tricks. I’ve always loved that she’s more than just her innate magical prowess – she’s a sorceress, yes, but she’s a magician and a showman.

She’s a bit of a flirt, both live-action and animated, with Batman, Superman, even Constantine. She’s also quite mischievous when it comes to her friends, using enchantments to spice up the lives of her allies.

Time for a magic show!

I love that she casts spells by speaking backwards! It’s actually a tribute to her father – speaking backwards when casting. It kills me that she speaks backwards as easy as she speaks forwards.

Zatanna’s definitely my favorite sorceress of the DC universe. She’s fun and she’s flirty, and she uses her hat as a dimensional portal. She can do so much more than pull a rabbit out of her hat – Zatanna is SUPER awesome!

Zatanna is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

Zatanna appears in several series of the DC animated universe, including Batman: The Animated Series, the web series Gotham Girls, and Justice League Unlimited.

She makes a cameo appearance in Batman Beyond. Zatanna appears in Batman: The Brave and the Bold. She appears in the Young Justice cartoon series.

Zatanna has always been an interesting character. Or is her name Annataz? Sometimes I wonder.
Congratulations on completing the AtoZ challenge this year. It’s been a lot of fun to stop over and check out what you’ve had to offer every day. That’s one of the best things about the challenge, all the great new people we meet and all the wonderful new blogs we get to read.

Thanks! I’ve appreciated your comments and your thoughts throughout the challenge. Everyone who commented inspired me to keep going and make it to the end.

I checked out your posts for the challenge too! It made me nostalgic, and I had to show it to my mom – she was intrigued and she loved your choices for the TV shows. And the commercials were a nice addition! πŸ™‚

[…] The next A-Z winner mixes Superheroes and cross stitch to provide a very interesting cast of characters https://nerdygirlconfession.wordpress.com/2016/04/30/zatanna/ […]
