Synopsis

Deep in the shadows of New Gotham City, restless souls prowl, unaware that justice stalks silently above them among the steely spires.

Legend tells of a caped crusader, Batman, guardian of New Gotham, and his one true love, Catwoman, the queen of the criminal underworld.

Their passion left behind something extraordinary, a daughter, Huntress. Half metahuman, she has taken up her father's mantel and under cover of the night, fights to protect the innocent and helpless.

Joining her in this struggle is Oracle, who was once Batman's protege, Batgirl. She was caught in the crossfire of the war between Batman and the Joker, now she fights crime a different way, a master of the cyber-realms and mentor and trainer to heroes.

Together, they have taken in a young runaway, Dinah, a metahuman herself with powers to open hidden doors to the mind, powers that she is only beginning to explore.

Together, these three are the protectors of New Gotham - the Birds of Prey.
