    Default Ideal Lineup for a Birds of Prey Team

    Post a list of the members you would want in a BoP book. I always love these types of threads and it seems appropriate considering Azzarello being announced on a forthcoming Birds of Prey title.

    Oracle
    Black Canary
    Huntress

    Guest stars as needed.

    No Harley!

    If I had to add someone new to the mix, I'd choose Onyx Adams.

    I don't know who Onyx Adams is, but otherwise I agree with you 100%.

    I agree with those. Wouldn't mind another member or two, but no more than that. And I do think it needs to be kept to those without super strength or invulnerability or the like. No more Bat-team-members - don't want it to be Bat-team in and of itself.

    Oracle, Dinah, Helena and Zinda. Guest stars as needed. Retain Power Girl as the first member who left after a fiasco of a mission. Always thought that was interesting and a good reason why she doesn't work with a team that normally she would be on.

    But 100% keep Zinda on there.

    All your suggestions are very cool. Especially the more obscure ones!

    My opinion? ... Of all the places I'd feel good seeing Montoya Question show up, it's in a BoP book by Azz. So far, her appearances as The Question have always felt out of place and contrived. But I would love to see her in a BoP book written by Azz.

    In another thread about dream titles, I had put Azz or Lemire as a writer I'd put on a Question book (I'm a huge Vic Sage fan). Now we have Lemire confirmed on a Vic Sage book, if we can get Montoya in BoP by Azz, I'd get both my wishes fulfilled!

    So I'd put in her in the core group with all the others you would expect.

    Manhunter would be interesting to see pop up in this book.
    Orphan for sure! I've been hankering to see her break from Batman's orbit.
    I know this one is weird but I have a soft spot for Inza Nelson, it would be nice to see her come back as Dr. Fate for maybe an arc with Zatanna. I know that's a curve ball though...
    My guess is DC's plans for Catwoman is to put her in the lead role in the Batman book for a while, so it would make a ton of sense to find her as a recurring character in BoP.

    Oracle as the core member, partnered with either Black Canary or Huntress. Feel free to add guests every now and then. Lady Blackhawk, Catwoman, Renee Montoya, or Lois Lane can all work well here.

    And get them out of Gotham. They're here for international spy and heist missions—at least half of their adventures should be the stuff of Charlie's Angels or Mission: Impossible.

    Come to think of it, what about Zatanna as one semi-regular guest? She also moves in the shadows (though different ones), has good relations with Black Canary, and it would give plenty of scope for different assumptions and worldviews.

    Black Canary...
    After that, I'm open to see what people would do with different characters. If Oracle we're still around, then absolutely Babs should be in the book but I don't think the dynamic of Batgirl in the book works.
    I like seeing Dinah and Helena together and always enjoy Zinda but mixing it up and adding fresh blood can create fun and interesting results too.

    Black Canary
    Batgirl (Babs)
    Huntress
    Starling
    Lady Blackhawk

    Occasional appearance by Rene Montoya. I’m actually not a fan of her as The Question but maybe she could be their contact in the GCPD.

    The bald look and her atrocious New 52 redesign is terrible. Love her original look.
