While Zatanna searches for her father's book of spells to conjure up his spirit, she also grants 'Clark' (Tom Welling) his deepest wish."

"Hex" was written by Bryan Q. Miller and directed by Mairzee Almas.

Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Murphy Anderson, Zatanna first appeared in DC's "Hawkman" #4 (October-November 1964).

Zatanna makes her living as a stage illusionist, while harnessing her own magic abilities, controlling the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water...
