BIRDS OF PREY UPDATE


GIVE'EM A CLICK

The Birds of Prey pilot episode for the new WB series contains several familiar Bat-verse characters.

Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, is killed early in the episode, with her daughter Helena watching over her. Helena becomes the Huntress and discovers that Batman is her father.

Batman himself actually appears, very briefly, as he tackles the Joker in what appears to be their final confrontation. Batman does not talk and is seen from behind from Batgirl's point of view.

Later, the Joker shoots Barbara Gordon in her apartment, causing the injury that paralyzes her and restricts her to a wheelchair. The Joker is voiced by Mark Hamill.

Alfred is seen helping Barbara in the Clocktower. He mentions he is taking care of Wayne Manor.

Sherilyn Fenn plays Dr. Harleen Quinzel, aka Harley Quinn. She is a psychiatrist counseling Helena but she has more ominous agendas.

  • Humanoids Publishing has announced that Batman and Catwoman writer, Ed Brubaker has written an introduction to its new crime genre trade paperback, Miss: Better Living Through Crime. His participation was added at the last minute, and therefore not mentioned in the solicitations for the book.

    "Ed is a great writer, and we're really big fans of his," said Ian Sattler, marketing manager for Humanoids. "We asked him to take a look at Miss because its subject matter is right up his alley. Thankfully he liked it enough to write the intro. Miss is a fantastic book, and I hope that fans will take note of what Ed has to say about it and check it out when it comes out in July."

  • The Tuesday, June 11 episode of The WB's Smallville will be a rebroadcast of "Hug."
