History

After the events of Day of Vengeance, when magic in the universe was changed, Zachary developed abilities similar to his relatives, Zatanna Zatara and John Zatara. Calling himself the "most popular teenaged magician", he briefly joined the Teen Titans. Zachary had little tact, patience, and modesty when it came to his skills. As a result, he was left with few to no friends amongst the Titans, many of whom looked at him as a selfish brat.

During the initial "auditions" for the Teen Titans, Zachary met with Kid Devil (Eddie Bloomberg), with whom he would share a very shaky friendship. One night after performing as a stage magician in Metropolis, Zachary was approached by Eddie, who asked him about a mysterious candle that he had found. Zachary explained that Eddie's candle was magical in nature and Eddie lit it. They were transported to Neron's realm and met Neron himself. Although he advised Eddie not to listen to Neron's offers, Eddie made a deal with the demon whereupon he was transformed into a real demon. Neron then sendt both the "new" Kid Devil and Zachary back to Earth. Zachary reluctantly kept Eddie's secret.

Zachary helped Eddie gain entrance into the Teen Titans, and together they had multiple adventures. They battled Kid Crusader and, during one stint, went to New Azarath, where they were almost eaten by the Phantasm. Zachary remained a Titan for several months, before eventually quitting because one of his female teammates was driving him crazy, destabilizing his powers.

One Year Later, he was performing as a professional stage magician in Japan with an assistant called "Bunny," whom he treated with mixed amounts of kindness and condescension. The current Teen Titans came to speak with him, as they were looking for their teammate Raven. Zachary wanted nothing to do with them and did not remember his times with Eddie or the Titans fondly. Still, he stated that Raven came to him in Japan and began to ask him "weird questions... about herself". After he kicked them out, it was revealed that he possessed a secret photograph of Raven. At the last second, he tried to call Eddie back, but they had already left and he went back to his show.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Sorcery: Like other members of the Zatara family, Zachary is able to manipulate magic by speaking spells backwards. So far, his powers have been shown to affect inanimate objects, summon simple objects into existence, and transmogrify one object to another.

Abilities

Prestidigitation: Zachary Zatara is a master of the art of "sleight of hand" and is an accomplished stage magician.

Weaknesses

It is unknown how his magical strength level compares with his cousin Zatanna. Probably, it is weaker since he states he can not affect human beings--although he can affect doves, suggesting he cannot affect beings with souls.
