Birds of Prey was the first ongoing series to feature the eponymous female superhero team and accumulated 127 issues during its publication from January 1999 until April 2009. The team was originally introduced in Showcase '96 #3 and then starred in a limited series and several one shots before finally earning their own DC series.

The ultimate information resource, Oracle, learned the ropes of espionage as an ally of the Suicide Squad before starting her own international crime-busting operation, The Birds of Prey. Recruiting members like Catwoman, Power Girl and Big Barda on a more "as-needed-basis" and moving from Platinum Flats to Dalten Towers, she eventually stabilized the roster and location at Gotham with members like Black Canary, Huntress, Lady Blackhawk, Hawk and Dove. The Birds of Prey were created by Chuck Dixon.
