Almost every comic book publisher offers their take on the intersection between magic and the superhero story, but no one does it quite like DC Comics. Rather than just a scattershot smattering of magical characters sprinkled throughout their universe, over the decades DC has managed to devote an entire corner of their comic universe to a menagerie of sorcerers, demons, goddesses, Lords of Order, and Things of the Swamp variety. On this episode of the Fantom Zone we discuss DC’s unique approach to magic in comics, and we each spotlight our favorite unsung mystical DC character.
