First Appearance

The Mask of Matches Malone!

The Birds of Prey are a group of female heroes shown in the episode The Mask of Matches Malone! They are inadvertently formed when Batman develops amnesia and believes himself to be the (false) crime lord Matches Malone.

History

The Birds of Prey started as an impromptu team up of Huntress, Black Canary, and Catwoman when Two-Face was set to auction off the magical Cloak of Nefertiti to the criminal underworld for $22 million. However, Matches Malone (Batman) was hit by a sandbag and believed he really was a gangster. Forced to retreat, the three reunited some time later when Matches went to the Iceberg Lounge. Infiltrating it, they found themselves singing an improvised musical number for their criminal audience when caught onstage. However their musical number wasn't enough to get through to Matches, resulting in them trying to lunge at him, however he managed to knock them all out. They were tied up and hung above a shark tank, explaining that it was a trap to lure Batman. Although while they were being lowered, Two-Face (dressed as Batman) showed up and began to fight Matches. While they fought, a stray bullet hit the controls to the crane, which began to lower them. However Catwoman was able to use her foot to give Huntress her crossbow. Huntress then shot the crossbow and ricocheted off the walls and cut off Black Canary's gag, which allowed her to use her sonic scream to break the glass of the tank. They were lowered to the floor where they managed to get untied. The Birds of Prey then regrouped, defeated Two-Face, and restored Batman to normal.
