Magic is the influencing of events by supernatural means.
The amount of power magic users can wield is essentially unlimited, though it differs from universe to universe.
There are numerous fictional beings which are attributed with being able to use magic (witches, wizards etc.), while others are magical in nature (demons).
Magic is often described in different ways within different canonical series (e.g. In the Harry Potter series the ability to use magic appears to be genetic). Another similarity is shown within the Warhammer universe where magic is a force that only certain types of users can tap into.
For a few sorcerers, such as Zatanna and her father Zatara, their spells and incantations are spoken backwards, although they are perfectly capable of performing using normal speech.
Individual Magical Powers

- Artifact Activation
Ability to control magic usually accompanies high intellect and empathy.
- Users are strain in accomplishing magic as one's own emotion, concentration and intellect distract from conjuring spells.
- Magic is often represented as draining a persons stamina or 'mana' with more powerful magic putting a greater strain on users as to become hindered by one's own ability.
- Some kinds of magic do have special characteristics (like fae magic, which can not be used on iron directly).
- A magician can not use spells which are beyond his imagination.
- Mostly a magic-wielders need to concentrate on using magic, and so there is a moment in which they are very vulnerable.
- Magic spells can be very dangerous, if the magician makes a speaking error.
- Without the right spells a magician is not able to do what he wants to (if it is necessary for him/ her to cast spells, not every magician needs to).
