Following the gang war in Gotham and Oracle's desperate attempt to save Batman, the Clock Tower is rubble and she no longer has a home. She decides to leave Gotham, and turns to Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, for help - he assists her to adapt a hi-tech plane for their use. Together with Black Canary and Huntress, she brings drug baron Tom Paul Jussub to justice and the trio leave Gotham behind them, on their new base piloted by the legendary Zinda Blake, Lady Blackhawk. They head towards Dayton, Ohio, and Oracle reveals that she doesn't plan to return to Gotham for quite some time.
"There Would Be No Spring"Edit
Life is not sweet for Zinda Blake, Lady Blackhawk. She has recently attended the funeral of Wu Cheng, the only other surviving Blackhawk, and she feels out of place in the modern world. The new company based around Blackhawk finds it hard having her around, and she is rarely allowed to pilot a plane. Until, that is, Black Canary comes to her with an offer. With a little bit of help from one of her few close allies at Blackhawk Inc., Zinda absconds with a new plane, the Citation X. From now on, she'll be piloting for Oracle and her agents.
