There's not a lot to change about Zatanna as far as her story is concerned. She was created as a potential love interest for Batman before she started being written younger, And her father has always been one of Bruce's teachers, so that was important to include. Also, while I desperately want to avoid the horribly misogyny of Identity Crisis, the idea that the Justice League used her powers to wipe Doctor Lights' mind is a good source of character conflict, so I kept that.
The seance that took her father has been expanded a little bit by making it one of the Shadowpacts. I've introduced the idea that a person can only be a part of a Shadowpact once, which explains why she would only be a peripheral character in the current team.
Something obviously has to be done with her outfit, which is unique, but more than a little sexist. Her satellite era costume (the one with the cape) is a decent enough take on the character for her initial foray into superheroics, but her later costume, with the fishnets? I get that it's supposed to be her stage costume, but it's downright ludicrous. I like this pants-oriented fanmade costume. The heels still give it a stage costume feel, but it also looks like something a person could actually wear in real life.
