Babs and the Birds of Prey

So Barbara Gordon made her way into the debut issue of Birds of Prey, which was a great surprise.  Readers were able to get some of their questions answered, and new ones formulated.  Let's break down Babs' quick cameo in Birds of Prey #1.

Now we know Barbara and Dinah have known each other for a long time; although it is clear that if theirs was a happy association back then, it is not anymore.

We can also conclude that Barbara was never part of the Birds of Prey, as the team is just being put together by Black Canary.  This doesn't mean Oracle and the Canary did not work as a team; we'll just have to wait and see what happened between these two.

Barbara is also familiar with the mysterious Sterling, and it seems she is not too fond of her.  Nonetheless, in this issue we see how Barbara plays an indirect role in the formation of the new Birds of Prey.

We will not have to wait long before seeing Batgirl teaming up with the Birds.  In issue number 4, the team will cross paths with the dominoed daredoll, and perhaps more of our questions will be answered.
