Who are the Birds of Prey and why is Harley Quinn with them?

Led by Harley Quinn, the upcoming Birds Of Prey movie features a team that will be quite different from the original comic book version.

This year’s slew of superhero movies kicks off today with Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn), based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name. However, the movie Birds Of Prey team is very different from the comics version. (You can read our review of the movie here: 'Birds Of Prey': All hail the Quinn.)

The first version of the Birds of Prey was created in 1995’s Black Canary/Oracle: Birds Of Prey. It was pretty much just a partnership between Black Canary and Oracle, aka Barbara Gordon, daughter of police commissioner Jim Gordon, who also served as the first Batgirl before she was paralysed from the waist down after being shot by the Joker in The Killing Joke.
