Dinah in the Bat family?

#1 Posted by Knightwing (333 posts) - - Show Bio

Alright, I'm stumped, why is she a member of the Bat family? Whose bright idea was it, I'm not sure it's even in the continuity, can someone explain this to me?

Wouldn't her being a operative of Birds of Prey make her a member?

She is.

Birds of Prey is Oracle's own team, Oracle's also provides information and digital info for the JLA so does that make the JLA a part of the Bat Family? No it does not.

I'm with you on this one. BC shouldn't be in the Bat Clan, she just shouldn't. In fact, she should be in comics at all ;)

I'm not saying that I don't like Black Canary, its just that she is in the Bat Family bugs me. All I want to know why she is in the Bat family so that I'll know whether to erase her from the team or not.

I'm sure she's had a little "fun" with Dick Grayson, wouldn't that make her a member of the Bat family? Just kidding...

While she may not be a direct member of the Bat - family, there is no doubt the two share a mutual attraction. They have kissed in Justice League - 1st series #84, Brave & Bold # 166 (Where Batman recues a scantily clad Canary and the last scene leaves you wondering what is going to happen next), and again in a recent Birds of Prey - where Canary tells Batman that he is a better kisser than she imagined. In the alternatice All-Star Batman and Robin the two are clearly more than just friends as their "encounter" in issue #7 illustrates.

The fact of the chemistry between the two of them adds extra significance to Batman's refusal to attend Canary's wedding ceremony to GA. I think DC could have a really strong love triangle going here - Does canary stay with "safe" Ollie - or go for "Dangerous / exciting Batman? And think of the tensions / angst that would also cause GA and Catwoman!

Anyway back to your original question - perhaps she should be on either the extended family, possible family or wanabee family lists?

I'm taking her out of the Bat Family anyway.

No. I always liked Her with Ollie.

She was second in command on Team Arrow and common ally to Bat family, plus since she has been ally to several other heroes and even training with some others.

Actually she is strong enough to have her own family even without Team Arrow. She has lot of supporting characters and even some decent villains sure most are also Birds of Prey and Green Arrow but still counts. Plus she is strong in mental and physicals abilities even more than some heroes. I can´t believe she even doesn´t have a sidekick.

She isnt a member of the Bat-Family. She's just a close ally.

She's has been wrapped up with GA lore for so long that I don't think I can see BC with her own family.

@martianmanhunterisbetterthancy:

Well Catwoman and Red Hood also had some sort of sidekick. Why she cannot have one? Her family doesn´t have to be like Batman´s family.

Why would she need one?

@knightlyvengence: I think her and a Robin had something going on in one Alex Ross's Elseworld series actually.
