Motorcycle Magician Madness!

During the DC’s prequel storyline to the New 52 universe known as Flashpoint, DC made some radical changes to many characters in the DCU as the Flashpoint altered the timeline. Zatanna was one of those changes.

Zatanna

 

Here you see Zantanna before and during Fashpoint. In the alternate timeline of the Flashpoint event, Zatanna is a member of the Secret Seven and also is a member of a motorcycle gang, her father Giovanni “John” Zatara was transformed into a motorcycle when Zatanna is riding on him. Zatanna is killed while trying to cast a death spell on Enchantress.

 

Now I have to say that even with this altered history as a Bike Babe, it is my opinion that her outfit is VERY extreme looking more like a New York city street walker instead of a Hell’s Angel.  Heck I have been in New York at night and those “street walkers” dress better then this! I mean look at those pants! I understand the concept of low riders however if these were any “lower” they’d be nothing more then a pair of pant legs.  Combine it with her Jacket I say that Zatanna was just looking for an way to let everyone know she enjoys wearing leather undergarments.

 

Oh and Just for reference this is Zatanna’s new look after Flash point in the New DC 52 Universe:

 

Zatanna 3

 

Though it most be noted that she still wears she classic costume when on stage in her job as a Stage Magician.

  1. I hate this kind of crap.

    Even disregarding the fact that it’s far from credible, I find that insulting and demeaning, to women, of course (something we should be ashamed of), but also to men, since it assumes we’ll buy a comic just to see some penciled cleavage and legs.

  2. If you can’t tell if the character is wearing pants, or thigh boots worn to an uncomfortably snug height, you’ve got yourself a bad design.

  3. Actually, I thought they were stockings, but that just goes to prove Jeff’s point…
    The new, post-Flashpoint look isn’t terrible, though it hardly screams “Mistress of the Arcane Arts” to me.
    Then, the number of things I actually like about “The New 52″ can be counted on the fingers of one hand, without bothering to worry about whether the thumb is a finger, or not… ;)

    That Flashpoint look is like a 10th. Ave. (NYC) hooker in the 80’s-early 90’s.

  5. What. The. Hell? If I wasn’t told, there would be no way I would recognize that as Zatanna.

  6. It looks like she had the same problem with her leather pants that Ross from Friends did.

    I like The New 52 costume. It’s much better than her old one.

  7. I think this motorcycle slut look makes her look like Criss Angel’s girlfriend.

    This is just terrible. Punkjay says it all, and it’s hard to go any lower than that.
    Maybe it’s just me, too, but I’ve never been fully on board with the thigh boots and classic stage magician outfit. Heels, fine. Maybe I’m old and stuffy that way. But that’s neither here nor there.

    Veyr frankly, I find that kind of slutty clothing revolting, regardless of context.

  10. Wait, what???? Zatana rides her father????? I hate to be the one to point this out but that has all kinds of wrong right there…. also the BDSM outfit??? Ugh…

    I’m gonna stop here because the mental imagery is getting too weird….

  11. Worf:
    Wait, what???? Zatana rides her father?????

    Wow… I did not need that before breakfast.

    Is that Raven standing behind Zantanna? This is just all around amazingly and impossibly stupid.

    The second, while modern and stylish, reminds me of Zoey Deschanel. Not that Zoey isn’t cute and quirky. It seems like a lead up to who they want to play Zantanna in an upcoming Teen Titans movie.

    Thanks for making that second point, Punk. I thought there was something about that picture, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

  13. The Atomic Punk: Wow… I did not need that before breakfast.

    Dude, I’m sorry but it just struck me as so F’d up I had to comment….

    Also, you’re right, that final look DOES have a Zoey look ‘n’ feel to it.

  14. This is why I’ve all but completely stopped reading these superhero comics, especially after their reboots. Anything that was done just for the sake of seemed old fashioned, or silly, or out of place must be banished from the fictional world. Part of the reason she returned to that traditional outfit years back was the absurdity of it. And god forbid something is done just because it’s fun. Do any of these rebooted characters even smile anymore?

    The old costume didn’t really scream mistress of the arcane arts either. More like Las Vegas stage act. Don’t get me wrong, love the old costume but still….
    As for the rest, the biker look is just plain ugly. The new costume isn’t too bad. I actually kinda like it.

  16. *facepalm* I think that is going to be her outfit if she is DLC in Injustice: Gods Among Us.
