Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey Vol. 1: Who Is Oracle? (Rebirth)

Synopsis:
Barbara Gordon is no stranger to secrets. She’s the daughter of GCPD Jim Gordon, the vigilante known as Batgirl and was once Oracle, the most powerful hacker on the planet.

Someone new has resurrected the Oracle mantle that Babs once controlled, and whoever is behind it is sending Batgirl on a wild chase all across Gotham City. By her side are two equally dangerous vigilantes–Dinah Lance, the rock star-turned-hero known as Black Canary, and Helena Bertinelli, the lethal spy code-named the Huntress.

Can this mismatched trio come together in time to solve the mystery of the new Oracle and defeat the villainous forces arrayed against them? Or will these Birds of Prey have their wings clipped before they can even get off the ground?

Review:
The Birds Of Prey have relaunched with Batgirl, Black Canary, and a mysterious Huntress. When a person calling themselves Oracle leads the group into trouble – Barbara must find out who’s using her moniker. The villains in this storline were a bit hokey. Though, there was a nice twist at the end. And I really liked how Huntress was handled – she’s a bit standoffish and not as trusting as the other team members. And the Oracle was a fun twist too, though [Spoilers ahead] there’s something a bit disappointing about a man being a part of the Birds of Prey. I really prefer the all-female team to remain all-female – that’s what makes them unique and awesome. Granted, the Oracle is a behind-the-scenes partner, so I can see that angle too. I’ll probably keep reading, but hope for another female Oracle in the future.
