Introduction

There are many superhero groups in the world of comic books such as the Justice League, the Avengers, the X-Men, and the X-Force. With so many different crime-busting factions out there, it can be hard for individual groups to stand out among their peers. The Birds of Prey don't really have that problem! Consisting primarily of female heroes like Black Canary, Batgirl, and the Huntress, the Birds of Prey have made a name for themselves as one of the DC Universe's foremost female fighting forces! A number of male heroes are associated with the team, with some having served as longtime members in their own rights, but the Birds' biggest claim to fame is being one of the most prominent female-led superhero groups in the world of comics.

Birds of Prey Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The Birds of Prey champion the ideals of feminism and female empowerment while also being very respectful of other views and perspectives. Considering that the group was first formed all the way back in 1995, we'd say that the folks behind the Birds - Gary Frank and Chuck Dixon - were ahead of the curve. One of the coolest things about the Birds is how they operate; they tackle the same foes that their male cohorts face off against with the same amount of skill and zeal. Punches are pulled and stories aren't watered down, allowing the Birds to prove that they are just as capable as any other superhero group through action rather than implication.

Gail Simone and Ed Benes' run with the Birds of Prey became legendary for building upon the foundation Dixon and Frank laid down. Together, Simone and Benes revolutionized the Birds, adding in many of the characters that have now become synonymous with the team as well as hitting on topics that were considered taboo at the time. Simone and Benes managed to make the Birds feel both powerful and human at the same time - paragons of virtue who were also still works in progress. With the Birds of Prey live action film coming out in 2020, hopefully, the next team of writers will build on Simone and Benes' foundation in turn. Look to characters like Canary, Helena and Nightwing as inspiration or draw from other sources such as the team's early locale, considering a play on Metropolis by naming your new addition Metro.
