    Default Harper Row: Bluebird Appreciation 2021

    So, new year, new opportunities. With Harper recently appearing in Punchline Special 1 and Dark Knights: Death Metal 5 and there being groundwork for her and Leslie Thompkins in the Punchline backup stories, 2021 looks to be a year where she can get a bit of the proverbial limelight.

    Hopefully 2021 doesn’t just bring her back to be Punchline’s punching bag.

    We know Bluebird will be a key player in Punchline’s backup story for the Joker series, but here’s hoping there’s more in store for her. Comics appearances, toys, maybe showing up in Batwoman S2? The sky’s the limit.

    Considering how Gotham Knights is inspired by Court of Owls I wouldn't be surprised if she showed up as a cameo somewhere around Gotham.

    I'd love a miniseries and an action figure would be good to have on my desk. Though the DC Universe already made a bust of her for their collection, I'd really like a statue based on some of her imagery from Batman Eternal 42 (minus the Mad Hatter hat).

    I wouldn't be against a slight redesign of her outfit. Not that the one she has so far isn't cool, but I'd like her return to have alittle more oompf behind it, and a new costume would certianly help !

    A new costume that’s actually blue to match her hero name would be a start. I’ve always found it odd that a character named Bluebird has a costume that’s mostly just black with blue accentuations.

    Her costume was originally supposed to be Nightwing, so I'm game for a more predominantly blue costume, maybe with a touch of purple to match her hair, as long as it doesn't drown it.

    Maybe replace the black parts of her current outfit with a navy blue to contrast the pre-existing blue?

    I would love an upgrade, a Bluebird 2.0 suit. Since a portion of it is from extra components of Tim's New 52 Red Robin and what Harper had with her at the time, it'd be interesting to see what she could come up with when given the resources. I think the fall arrest gear she repurposed into her utility belt is a essential and identifiable part of her costume and should be carried forward.

    I have problems with the neck armour but considering that Harper is investigating Punchline, someone who goes for the neck, I say keep it.

    Do you think she can have a bluebird symbol instead of the current blue V design?
