Whether as a hard-hitting cop of the GCPD or the mysterious, faceless vigilante known as the Question, Renee Montoya is devoted to cleaning up the streets of Gotham…within the law and, if necessary, outside of it.
Renee Montoya was first introduced to the world in Batman: The Animated Series as a morally strong, virtuous, and open-minded beat cop partner to the oafish and outspoken Harvey Bullock on the Gotham City Police Department. Whereas Bullock placed no faith in Batman’s capacity as protector of Gotham City, Montoya was willing to give him a chance to work alongside them, as long as their alliance continued to be productive. Through her early appearances, Renee Montoya earned the distinction of being one of the few police officers in Gotham City whom Batman could trust.
It was perhaps this cautious trust in masked operatives which eventually made Montoya a prime candidate for vigilantism herself when she was approached to continue the work of the mysterious crime fighter known as the Question.

Birds of Prey and DC's Radical Tradition of Girl Gangs
HARLEY QUINN & THE BIRDS OF PREY #1The creative team that transformed Harley Quinn forever returns to shake up her world once more-and this time, the gloves are off! Harley Quinn has avoided Gotham City ever since she broke up with The Joker and found a home, and a kind of family, in Coney Island. But when she gets an offer she can’t refuse, she has no choice but to slip back into the city as quietly as she can, hoping to be gone before anyone-especially her ex-learns she’s been there. But for Harley, “as quietly as she can” is plenty loud…and before she can say “Holee bounty hunters, Batman,” The Joker’s sicced every super-villain in the city on her pretty ombré head-and the only team tough enough (or crazy enough) to come to her defense is the Birds of Prey! The foul-mouthed, no-holds-barred sequel to one of DC’s raciest runs is here! Get on board early, before we come to our senses!
