    Rather not. I think the current one is the best she's ever had.

    That said, Azz and Harley? Ugh. I'll give it an issue but I'm already prepared for garbage. How can you have Birds of Prey without Oracle? That's a fundamental aspect of the team. Get out with this Harley pandering nonsense.

    So glad others can see Azzarello for the sexist jerk he is.
    Being a "Person of Interest" doesn't make you an interesting person.

    Besides that fact that DC has driven me to despise Harley, my in-universe reason for skipping this is that Dinah would never willingly work with her. And try as they might to ruin her, Black Canary remains one of my all-time favorite characters.

    Renee Montoya was alluded to by Azzarello so does that mean she will be a member of Azzarello's iteration of the team? This would most probably mean that she would be the Question, right?

    Why did they say that Huntress and Harley used to be a thing? I was almost sold until I read that

    It's been mentioned before by others, but that's a big issue with heavily featuring popular villains or even some anti-heroes - heroes who would never choose to work with them being out of character for the sake of the a team-up. Especially long-term team ups.

    That does sound dreadful, but I didn't see that bit. What I got was
    Harley: new life after suicide squad
    BC: helping an old flame
    Huntress: working with Montoya (actually possibly more like for Montoya?) against "Las Esposas de la Muerte"

    I can't wait to tell my wife about this. Azz's run on WW was one of her favourite things in comics! Incidentally, my wife is a feminist and queer. Figured I'd toss that in, in the interest of perspective diversity...

    I didn't read the title, but she served on the JLA with Lobo (and Killer Frost) and he's a sadistic bastiche. What was the reasoning for her being okay with him there and did their explanation fly with you? Maybe Batgirl convinces Dinah since they were so chummy in "HiC."

    Nope. Sorry, I canít agree. I think the new one looks generic as hell. Itís not a bad design. It just doesnít capture the essence of Huntress to me. They should at least ditch the hood and give her back her classic domino mask. It was something that really made her look unique in terms of hero costumes.

    To me (not person you were replying to), that just compounding mistakes. But I don't expect DC to ever stop it (not just with Harley, with others of her ilk, too). I hate what it does to heroes, but the issues seemingly sell, and that's all that matters.

    It's like World's Finest without Clark and Bruce. Just my opinion.
    Once upon a time, the JL didn't have the Big Seven or the Trinity in it.
    Charlie's Angels don't keep the same three members all the time, either.

    How is a domino mask unique among superhero costumes?

    IMO, it's not Barbara, it's Oracle. The dynamic didn't work for me when Barbara was Batgirl in the book.
