Birds fo Prey needs some serious shaking up. I figure one of the most obvious ways to do so would be to shake up the roster. IMO, the team would benefit from adding some actual SUPERPOWERED ladies to the roster. Limiting the Birds to the Batmanverse has been somewhat damaging to them in my opinion because it keeps them at a very street level status and limits the stories that can be told. So here's a poll where you can chip in and say which characters you'd like to see in a revamped Birds of Prey roster, along with Black Canary and co.

as much as i like vixen i voted hawk & dove , it stays with the bird theme and they are roughly street level beings , raven i think would be overkill same with fire & ice, i like phantom lady in her own book and i do not know the others

Fire and Ice. I miss their absence since JLI ended.

Had to go with Hawk & Dove. They seem like the best fit. Vixen wouldn't be that bad either though.

Its multiple choice.

Firehawk, Owlwoman, and Raven are actual Bird names, so I would want them to join.

Hawkfire(formerly Flamebird) would probably fit in too then.

I dont care, as long as you get rid of Condor

I always thought Rocket would fit in well.

Keep Batgirl, Black Canary, and Katanna. Scrap all of the rest.

Then maybe add Fire and Ice.

And even though this won't happen due to the current state of the DC Universe, Renee Montoya's Question and Helena Betrinelli's Huntress would be my ideal additions to the team.

While dangerous, even slightly groundbreaking, adding Raven to this team of street-level covert-ops team could open up some new venues of stories to tell with it.

It's dangerous in the sense that normally this book is read because the girls in it kick ass in the physical sort of way, they are really good at that, but not superhuman. Raven however is not a character that's been shown to leave her superpowers at the door in favor of fists and feet.

It's groundbreaking in the other way since I can't recall the team ever having a magician on their team for any length of time. That said, I wouldn't want to escalate the team to take on demons like Neron or Trigon, mad cultist perhaps, but not the big shots of Hell.

That said, I would honestly have preferred if Raven had appeared on the old team, simply due to it's greater level of experience and more solid core. Since it would be something new for her character, it would broaden her sphere of contacts and perhaps someone could finally figure out to make something interesting with her without having to add her father. Also it could be amusing having her and Huntress under the same roof.

Vixen would suit they're style more in my opinion.

Pre-52, Power Girl would have been a great addition because she has past animostity with Oracle due to a failed mission. If they could write in a similar backstory, it would work quite well. But I dunno, I haven't been reading n52 BoP, so I don't know if the team was around before or if Oracle (if Babs was ever Oracle) was ever leader of the team.

I'd add Dr Light, of course.

Vixen for Justice League please.

Is this DC's only female team? "Birds" has always been the draw back of the team.

Bumblebee could fit. It would introduce her to the new52. She's an intelligent and a gadget engineer. She built her own power suit. That could be expounded upon.

Lady Blackhawk.

I would give my right arm for Lady Blackhawk to return. I love her to bits.
