With the help of Batman, the great magician Zatanna looks to clear her name from a robbery that she never committed. Zatanna's big magic trick at the Gotham Mint is to make ten million dollars disappear and then reappear. Unfortunately, for her the money never reappears and the police arrest her during her act. It is up to Batman to solve the real crime, recover the stolen money and bring to justice the real criminal Montague Kane, while clearing the name of his old pal Zatanna.
“Zatanna” is a very interesting episode that is written by Paul Dini under the direction of Dan Riba and Dick Sebast. It is quite fascinating to see a teenaged Bruce Wayne seeking others to help train his mind and body. This isn't the usual training that we are used to seeing either, Wayne seeks out the greatest escape artist around, so that he too can learn the tricks of the trade and become a stellar escape artist. This adds another layer to the Batman mythos and creates a young relationship between Zatanna and Wayne. Additionally it was interesting to see the resemblance of Montague Kane to magician and movie director Orson Welles. “Zatanna” has all the action, the adventure and the heart that we expect from this great series and adds to this canon another solid episode. - Justin Shanlian
