Dustin Nguyen gives us this awesome group shot of the major characters in the Bat universe. It must have been a blast to put together. The only character I had trouble identifying was the little girl sitting on Clayface’s shoulder. It turns out she’s Annie, Clayface’s “daughter” from the animated series. For such a loner, Batman sure does have a lot of people in his life :)

Zatanna Zatara is the daughter of Giovanni “John” Zatara, the reverse speaking Master of Magic. As one of the magical heavyweights of the DC universe around since the 1960s, she has since been retconned into being a childhood friend of Bruce Wayne’s and has been tied to Batman ever since. This is probably due in large part to Batman:The Animated Series writer/director Paul Dini’s marriage to a professional magician who he himself admits bears a strong resemblance to Zatanna :)
Zatanna and Batman’s relationship was fractured during the events of Identity Crisis when it was revealed that Zatanna had secretly erased Batman’s memory to cover up a Justice League crime. This led directly to Batman’s growing mistrust and paranoia of his fellow heroes, although his bond to Zatanna has healed somewhat. She has even encouraged her love rival Selina Kyle (Catwoman) to fight for Bruce Wayne’s affections, despite his engagement to Jezebel Jet at the time.
