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.


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. After escaping their Hammerhead Shark death trap, the Birds of Prey regrouped, defeated Two-Face, and restored Batman to normal.


  • In the original comics the Birds of Prey are a group of heroes mostly composed of females (though some males have joined the group).
  • While Black Canary, Huntress, and Catwoman all appear in the series finale "Mitefall!" the only time they are the Birds are in "The Mask of Matches Malone!"
