    I'm going to make the name make sense by making the field team to be the birds
    Black Canary
    Lady Blackhawk
    Starling
    Strix
    Bluebird

    Oracle acts as founder and mission control so she doesn't have to be a bird

    I don't know how to justify Huntress yet. Maybe she covers the Prey part not the Bird part lol

    Who would you want as regular members of the team?
    (NOTE: Black Canary and Barbara could still make occasional guest appearances.)
    BOP but with no BOP members?

    I guess the best route would be to use Wendy White as 'Proxy' and have her be explicitly identified as being inspired by Babs. Her father being a villain should also open doorways to stories that you can't tell

    Onyx can replace Black Canary as the field agent and her background as a member of the League of Assassins will help them open up new story threads.

    Grace Choi can serve as the muscles on the team.

    Huntress/Helena Bertinelli, once the student, now the master who has to tutor the new Oracle.

    Lady Blackhawk/Zinda Blake, pilot, driver and serves as the chauffeur of the team. Also tries to help guide the new team.

    Aquagirl/Lorena Marquez, the team's Atlantean contact and a new member of the team who can bring in new powers.

    Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders, provides air support to the team. Contrasting with Aquagirl. Her connection to Nth metal and the reincarnation thing should open up door ways to other story telling opportunities.

    Traci 13:, provides magical support to the team and opens up door ways for them to explore that avenue.


    I know this seems like a large team. Huntress and Lady B are support characters but can be removed entirely if necessary.

    The only 'birds' have been Black Canary and Starling, I think.
    Oh, and Lady Blackhawk.

    I think 'birds' is used in a double-meaning, with more of a play on the slang term for 'girl'.
    We likely won't be see Hawk, Golden Eagle or Northwind joining anytime soon.

    Put Himiko Dr. Light in the leadership role.
    Have the field agents be:
    - Donna Troi
    - Cassandra Cain
    - Zatanna
    - Vixen
    - Miss Martian

    What I find to be absolutely spectacular about this thread is that absolutely no one wants Harley Quinn on the core or extended team.

    Which is as it should be. I *like* Harley (a lot) but this team ain't hers.

    Oracle
    Black Canary
    Huntress

    Everyone else is negotiable, including:
    Question
    Onyx
    Wonder Girl (Cassie), a tank in desperate need of a character arc and time away from the boys.
    Mother Panic (C'mon, it'll be fun)

    Oracle, and tons of birds (or flying animals)

    Huntress, Black Canary, Hawk (Holly) and Dove, Batwoman, Batgirl (Cass or Steph), Bluebird, Flamebird, Strix...


    ...and The Question (Montoya) as a close ally.

    I think it being 3/4 is the best for it...and with that...

    Oracle - The team leader, moral compass
    Black Canary - the field leader
    Huntress - the "bad girl" of the group
    Zinda - flys the planes/cars/gadgets

    Black Canary and Barbara Gordon as either Batgirl or Oracle or both are “MUST HAVES”!!

    I don’t need Huntress.

    Lady Blackhawk would be good.

    Maybe the ORIGINAL version of Black Orchid. She was super strong and a master of disguise.

    Beyond those three, just occasional female guest stars.

    For the record, I don't hate Harley but if she belongs on any team, it should be either Gotham City Sirens or the Suicide Squad.

    Is Mirage still around? If so I vote for her to be considered as well. Brett's post above points out the need for stealth and espionage capabilities. I considered Gypsy but the name makes me pause and she has done a long stint on the League whereas Mirage is MIA.

    I would also like to see the team run into the Ravens and the Body Doubles out in the field. (But then I am ALWAYS up for more Body Doubles)

    I'd be happy to see:

    Oracle
    Black Canary
    Lady Blackhawk
    Question (Montoya)
    Manhunter (Kate)
    Huntress (Bertonelli)
