...fighting mad about water conservation!
And what better way to stop water waste on a global scale than...going door to door?!?
Of course, he gets a little help from his friends...like Hosey the Hose! "I'm a hose!" "Thanks, Hosey!"
I think by this point we can all agree on one thing: Zatara is a jerk.
Now it's around this time I usually ask the question I bet you're expecting...
...namely: Where do you buy a green suit jacket?!? And at last, I've got an answer for ya.
This discovery of this outlet for green suits, however, neither stops Zatara from his ceaseless quest to badger everyone in town about wasting water...
...nor does it prevent him from continuing to be a jerk.
So be alert for commie scum who destroy America by wasting water! Question your neighbors! Spy on their water usage! Monitor their water habits and keep records in a little book! Turn those H2Outlaws into your local branch of the FBI (the Federal Bureau of Irrigation)! Stand tall, proud American, and stop water waste today! This has been a paid announcement on behalf of the Water Resources of the United States, Zatara the Master Magician, and Captain Cold, who relies upon air humidity in order to battle against the Flash using weapons that turn things into ice.)
