- -- Katana src
Katana was asked by Black Canary to join the Birds of Prey. She was also recommended by Barbara Gordon together with Starling and Poison Ivy, who joins the team even though Katana wasn't very happy about it. The team finds out that, on a train, three people have bombs in their heads. The four of them go on to the train and stop it, after learning that Black Canary also had a bomb in her head.
After the bombs are removed, they learn where the person who has been doing this is and, with the help of Batgirl, they break into the building, only to get sent outside again with no memory of what happened and without Batgirl.
Her primary weapon is her sword, "Soultaker," which is said to capture the souls of anyone killed by it, including her husband. Katana sometimes begins conversing with her husband, initially confusing those around her.
