Giovanni Zatara was actually kind of disappointed in his various protegees. His daughter Zatanna is too flashy and relies on too many props. His nephew Zachery doesn’t take the craft seriously enough and uses too many gimmicks. Kent Nelson used to tell Zatara not to be so demanding and that he took magic too seriously but he couldn’t help it. The one person who Zatara claimed understood his methods was this young man named Bruce.
