Birds of Prey returns as part of Brightest Day

It's been announced that Birds of Prey is being revived, but unsurprisingly, there's strings attached:
Both titles [Justice League: Generation Lost is the other series they're talking about here] are part of the “Brightest Day” initiative and will carry the “Brightest Day” banner on their covers. Not much is known about “Brightest Day” thus far except that it follows out of the conclusion of the “Blackest Night” mega-arc unfolding through the DC Universe titles, and that it will supposedly be a turn away from the darker tones and themes that DC’s super-hero titles have had for the past several years.
So the problems here, on the one hand, are that it's part of a crossover, and on the other, that it's only supposedly veering away from darkness, which sounds like more dangling carrots. In any case, I'm afraid that if this is being done as part of their latest crossover (another is War of the Supermen), that's already a problem.

Since Black Canary is going back to the fold, this also signals they're breaking up Dinah's union with Green Arrow, and further signaling the bad news that may be in store with "The Fall of Green Arrow". If they want to seperate/divorce them, that's one thing, but if Ollie Queen is going to face disaster, I'm afraid that's simply poor thinking.

In that case, there's clearly nothing great in store here either.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
