    Unless there's a clear ulterior motive, I really don't care for Dinah working for a spy organization. Or anyone, really. With a few exceptions, I prefer independent heroes to those answerable to a company or government.

    Spying on Slade for Babs does make a good motive for it, if indeed that's what's going on. Dinah knows that the Batgirls are operating the way the Birds of Prey used to - but that doesn't mean she can't help Oracle in a different way. The only question is if it conflicts with her Justice League duties.

    Well, I know current continuity wise she has government/spy experience, so that might play into it.

    @ those questioning the team up - they were on the same team during the new 52 (Team 7) so it's hardly something "new".

    As a fan of both characters, I'm interested in seeing how this turns out.

    To be honest, I'd rather forget about that iteration.
    Just because it happened before doesn't mean it's a good direction to take.

    How many secret spy organizations does DC need? So Dinah will with this new org while Ollie is working for Checkmate and both may be part of JL? That's.....a bit much. Wouldnt hate it but still.

    Agreed.
    Point was, stranger things have happened without previous iterations.

    Which is utter ridiculousness, imagine being a top superhero -betraying and leaving the League, the premiere superhero team to join shady organizations and teaming up with supervillains. Black Canary one of the most moral characters in the DCU joining with Deathstroke, singing up herself for Deathstroke Inc!! shake my head. Green Arrow is also doing similar shenanigans with supervillains and a shady group. I dislike this propping for supervillains, Deathstroke, Harley , now they are even compromising and sacrificing heroes morals. I like a bit of grey areas, but this gone too far, to the dark side.

    That’s not Black Canary, and DC has no idea who this character is anymore. Or maybe they just donĀ’t care, they are rather heavily focused on Bruce Wayne or Wally West whom DC cares to protect their integrity, honour and history. You add that Dinah is a female character, and you can see why she is getting what she is getting.

    Wait, what?

    Are you saying Wally West is as important to DC as Bruce Wayne?

    Ugh, this just gave me a depressing thought. Do you think DC is slowly moving away from the "Birds of Prey" moniker, in favor of the more marketable (albeit redundant and unimaginative) "Batgirls"? I wouldn't be at all surprised.

    Not necessarily.

    It just may be there really isn't a call / need for The Birds of Prey at the moment, which may not be such a bad thing until people who don't really know comic books stop assuming Harley Quinn belongs with that group.
