Birds of Prey

Some jobs need the talents of a specialized team—a team comprised of fierce heroines ready to leap into dangerous situations and act with decisive authority and skill. Luckily, such a group exists: the Birds of Prey are ready and waiting for the next job.

Operating out of the Clock Tower, a maximum-security location in Gotham equipped with the high-tech Oracle mainframe, the Birds of Prey are a covert ops and crimefighting team. Since criminals often escape domestic justice by hopping borders, the team led by Oracle (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary (Dinah Laurel Lance) and the Huntress (Helena Bertinelli) operates internationally. Their combined skills—computer talents, martial arts and hand-to-hand combat—make them a balanced and effective group.

The Birds of Prey have had no shortage of missions over the years, and the group has often expanded beyond Babs, Dinah and Helena. The roster is fluid, with heroes like Big Barda, Dove and even Poison Ivy coming and going. But regardless of the current list of members, the team has always banded together to use their variety of traits to their advantage. They remain focused on working behind the scenes to bring crime to a halt.
