Zatana began the search for her father in Hawkman #4 in 1964. It took almost three years to find him but she finally did in Justice League of America #51. She also helped introduced the idea of the crossover because her search spanned many titles. So we can thank Zatana for all those lovely editor notes.*

What else happened in 1964?
- Aquaman and Mera got Married making them the first superhero couple to tie the knot. Of course when your a superhero it’s not as simple as walking down the aisle, first you have to break up with the girl you want to marry because you can’t marry non-atlantians and she can feel rejected enough to team up with a bad guy to trap you. Then once the bad guy is about to kill you, the power of love can overcome the power of rejection and the girl will save you even if she can’t have you, thus allowing you into make her an honorary citizen of the place you’re king of and giving you the loophole you need so you can marry her. That’s how it happens for everyone, right?
- The Crime Syndicate of Earth-3 got bored so they decided to take down the JLA of Earth-1. On Earth-1, the JLA would have won but the CS quickly moved the party to Earth-3 where the CS triumphed. For some reason they wanted a fair battle so they then moved over to the neutral territory of Earth-2, after the CS imprisoned the JSA of Earth-2 so they couldn’t help the JLA. The JLA won, found the JSA, stopped some bomb rigged to blow up Earth-1 and 2, and trapped the CS between worlds. And if you followed that, then you win because I’m certainly lost.
- Batman was close to cancellation so he got a makeover. That little yellow circle was added to the bat on his suit, Robin became a hip kid of the time, and the Batmobile became a two seater sports car. Not only that but in the next issue Alfred was killed off and Aunt Harriet moved into the Mansion to help take care of the two bachelors.
