What’s New In The New 52: Introducing Uplink

By Bob Harras Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.

Each day this week in What’s New in The New 52, we’ll be spotlighting all-new characters that will be introduced in BIRDS OF PREY #22 (in stores next Wednesday). Today, meet Uplink.

A French Canadian teenager, Uplink has the ability to physically link to other people’s minds and show them exactly what they want to see. By doing so, she allows people the opportunity to live in their heart’s deepest desires. Sounds great right? Not so much.

Uplink is reluctant to use her powers because whenever she does, it takes a lot out of her. She’s more of a timid and tech-inclined young woman who’d prefer to remain an introvert. But when Basilisk takes her hostage to use her for powers, her chances of that seem diminished. An integral player in the elusive Operation Kaizen, Uplink is a character you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on.

More tomorrow!
