Dear @BirdsofPrey, we have a club crossover WAL for the Titans premiere this week! Join us!
Found a couple things….
I’m a little surprised by this one:
Hey BoP friends,
I was starting on Wonder Woman (2006) when I discovered it crossed over with Manhunter (2004). Then I scrolled down the series and saw Manhunter teams up with the Birds of Prey! Maybe she is considered part of the BoP also? I had never heard of this character before.
Anyhow, I fell down another comic wormhole (as I do) and started on this series. I have already fallen hard for Kate Spencer. She kicks a lot of butt and is hilarious while doing it. Anyone know much about this character and if she has any other appearances?
I forgot to comment about this during the BOP/Titans Together S3 Premiere WAL-
I really, REALLY do not care for the comics version of the Joker. Or the HQAS version of him either.
@Angel212- here’s some Kate S. deets for ya’.

I mean, you’re not really supposed to like him…?
- Her Birds of Prey direct interaction is limited: Gail Simone’s run issues #10, #14, and #15.
- The Manhunter story continues as a backup story in the first thirteen issues of Streets of Gotham.
- Riffing on her appearance in Arrow, she’s got a supporting role as Ollie’s lawyer in Ben Percy’s run of Green Arrow (on-and-off issues 25-47).
- She’s also in lawyer mode for the second half of Gotham by Midnight.
- Most recently, she’s part of Lois’ crew for Event Leviathan.
You can say that again @keath.
I think for Manhunter questions our resident expert is the one and only @CassTheStreet
She has a series that should be on here as well. I love the main series but never was able to follow her other appearances. I highly recommend the primary series for many reasons. If anyone wants to ask specific questions and I know the answers, I will gladly answer them.
My favorite thing about this character is she is a parent. She also chooses to become a superhero. The way she acquires her costume is interesting and how it connects to the larger DCU is on point. I simply adore every single issue.
Curses, my being at work robs me of the Manhunter expert badge!
Will have to keep an eye out so I don’t lose the Steph badge too!
She’s not just a parent who chooses to become a superhero, she’s the in-between generation with no super powers in doing so. And Ramsey convinces her to adopt Thor. I think my favorite moment was when her ex learns that Thor is a robot. Also adore Dylan and Damon as her “sidekicks” and really want them to return to modern continuity. (I would read the hell out of a Dylan Battles and Henry Fyff buddy series.)
I’m a good ways into her main series now (started with the Wonder Woman issues but then went back to the beginning). I love how real she is. Just a relatable human who also does amazing things. Also I like all the supporting cast.
I will wait till we get to her BoP issues in book club to read those. And Event Leviathan was one of the first things I read when I started exploring wider the DC world so she was just one of many people I didn’t know at the time and apparently don’t remember. I’ll have to go back and look again at that series now.
Thank you guys for
feeding my addiction sharing your knowledge!
I meant to say yesterday, thank you for taking the trouble to link all these stories, @keath! That was super helpful. I’m getting some of these prepped to read now.
You are quite welcome. (You’re not going to beat Mark Andreyko for writing Kate, but the rest are much fun. And you’re already hooked on Gail Simone for BoP. )
I was afraid of this (I just went back over Event Leviathan and didn’t much care for how she was written there). But I’ll still check all these out!
Huge @BirdsofPrey alert!!!
I liked her in BOP. I’m definitely down to see more of her. Movie sounds good, I hope it’s rated ‘R’ with a good story. Or just a good story
ponders if the flick will get toys/merch
It should. I wants me a DCEU Black Canary figure.
YAY!!! That’s a serious not sarcastic yay!! Ty for the news @Mae & what great news it is. She was awesome in BOP!! Appreciate the heads up….
