Signal

Duke Thomas is the daytime protector of Gotham City, and his metahuman light sensory powers make him unlike any of Batman's other crimefighting partners.

While Batman and most of his allies operate at night, crime in Gotham City is quite different in the daytime, and so requires a different kind of crimefighter. Enter Duke Thomas—a.k.a. the Signal, the brightly colored agent of the Bat who hits the streets when the sun is out and Batman is asleep in his cave.

Cassandra Cain

Trained from birth as the ultimate killing machine, Cassandra Cain found a new life as the fourth Batgirl and, eventually, Orphan, a cherished part of the Batman family.

No one in the Batman Family had an easy childhood, but Cassandra Cain may have had the worst. Raised from infancy under the tyrannical and abusive thumb of her father, the world-class assassin David Cain, Cassandra was taught violence before she was taught anything else—even how to speak.

Stargirl

The proud wielder of the Cosmic Staff, Courtney Whitmore has fought evil as a member of the Justice Society and Justice League.

Katana

Wielder of the fearsome Soultaker Sword, Tatsu Yamashiro escaped a tragic past to fight alongside the Outsiders and the Suicide Squad.

Midnighter

What does it take to win a fight? Skill and training are crucial, as are endurance, fortitude and quick reflexes. But what if you had all of that, and could predict your opponent’s moves before they happened? You’d be almost undefeatable. You’d be Midnighter. 

Arsenal

Formerly known as Speedy, the Green Arrow's sidekick, bowman Roy Harper fights a host of evils, including those that live inside him.

Adopted by a Navajo shaman named Brave Bow, orphan Roy Harper spent his early teens learning survival skills and becoming a crack archer. He learned so quickly, he eventually earned the nickname “Speedy.” Making his way to Seattle, Roy served as costumed sidekick and mechanical engineer to millionaire Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. In addition to battling alongside the Emerald Archer, Roy was a founding member of the Teen Titans.

Talia al Ghul

One of the world’s greatest spymasters, Talia al Ghul is a woman perpetually caught between the visions of the two most important men in her life: her father, Ra’s al Ghul, and her Beloved, Batman.

“Talia,” as the Demon’s Daughter has simply been called for most of her history, has lived an extremely gendered life. Born into the highest echelon of the ancient and patriarchal League of Assassins, Talia could have had all the power in the world if not for the unfortunate happenstance of being born a woman.

Tim Drake

Tim Drake possesses detective skills comparable to those of his mentor Batman, though his heart may be his greatest weapon.

Growing up in Gotham City can be…complicated. Especially when you're a kid who’s obsessed with Batman and Robin. For Tim Drake, learning everything about his favorite superheroes eventually led him down the path of becoming one himself, after he deduced the identities of Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson.

Red Hood

Former Robin Jason Todd parted ways with the Batman over their vastly different approaches to crimefighting, eventually founding his own team, the Outlaws.

Death can be a strange thing for DC Super Heroes, especially when it doesn’t quite stick. Just ask Jason Todd. As Batman’s second Robin, Jason died at the hands of the Joker when he was just a child. But he returned to life with the help of a Lazarus Pit and the literal warping of time and reality.

Black Canary

Fearless street fighter and frequent partner to Green Arrow, Dinah Lance tackles injustice with her unmatched martial arts skills and her ear-piercing "Canary Cry."

Sometimes the most beautiful things are also the most deadly. Such is the case with Dinah Lance, a.k.a. the Black Canary, a silver-tongued songstress who just so happens to have the power to turn her voice into a supersonic blast she calls a "Canary Cry."
