Birds of Prey

Gone Too Soon Series Part I

The series is set in New Gotham City, several years after it has been apparently abandoned by Batman. In his absence, Oracle (Barbara) and the Huntress (Helena) have taken over his war on crime. The two are joined by Dinah (after she assists them in defeating Larry Ketterly, a telepath with abilities similar to Scarecrow); Alfred Pennyworth, who serves Helena as she is heir to the Wayne estate; and Detective Jesse Reese, a police officer confronted with crimes and abilities he cannot explain. A central feature of the series is the concept of metahumans: individuals born with powers that cannot be explained. No two metahumans have the same abilities (unless hereditary), and there exists a whole subculture of metahuman society that the outside world knows nothing about.
In the future, long after the Batman has driven himself into exile, his legacy lives on in the form of the Birds of Prey--Black Canary, Oracle, and the Huntress.

Mack’s Thoughts

You may not agree with this choice but look at it this way. This show had a lot of potential in addition to kinks to work out which could have occurred if the season progressed but I guess we will never know. The comic book was awesome. I think the CW is redeeming their selves proving there worth with their current shows based on DC Comics. There are very few shows with kick-ass female leads these days.
