Zatanna Zatara, a magical superheroine who can perform a variety of offensive and defensive spells just by speaking backwards and now, with the inclusion of Mystik U, we will see the character in her college days.
According to writer Alisa Kwitney and artist Mike Norton the book is “about a university for the magically gifted” and will showcase a “sheltered show biz kid, a bitter rebel, a split personality, a competitive pre-med student, and an awkward prodigy” who all discover “that they have the capacity to perform real magic”. The story will very much be the “freshman orientation” of these characters and “there is definitely a villain, but there’s also the exploration of the villain’s journey” which Alisa compared to the Harry Potter character Tom Riddle.
When speaking more on the core cast, Alisia said that they “wanted some of the more obscure magical characters” and wanted to explore such ideas like “Sargon’s relationship with his Ruby”, Felix Faust who will be utilized as the “brooding, aloof, tormented healthcliff type” who can’t control his powers, Enchantress would be a character who “discovers a new side to herself”, and Zatanna has “so much expectation placed on her.”
