    Short summary describing this character.

    Bird last edited by Riddlersriddle on 08/25/19 01:31PM View full history


    Bird, so named because of his affinity for birds, was one of Bane's best men. Imprisoned together in Santa Prisca, Bird taught Bane about the criminal world outside of the prison's walls, including tales of Gotham City and its vigilante protector, Batman. When they escaped together and travelled to Gotham, Bird used his pet falcon to spy over Gotham. He had a short confrontation with Robin and later he fought a weakened Batman, nearly defeating him. Batman still prevailed and Bird was imprisoned by the Gotham Police.

    Major Story Arcs

    I am Bane

    Accompanying Bane to Gotham City, Bird ambushes Bronze Tiger; knocking him unconscious and taking him as hostage. Then finding Catwoman at the ruins of her childhood orphanage, Bird attacks her and manages to subdue her. Bird attempts to kidnap James Gordon with the help of Trogg and Zombie but the trio are knocked unconscious by the combined efforts of Gordon and Duke Thomas.

    Later in charge of supervising the hostages Bane has taken, Bird is caught unaware by Catwoman who manages to defeat him. Carving a message into his skin, Catwoman leaves Bird strung upside down in Bane's safehouse.

    Powers and Abilities

    Although without powers, Bird has a strong connection to Talon (his pet bird). He is able to control the animal with great skill and can use it perform tasks such as scouting the area or attacking an opponent.

    Bird also has some ability in hand-to-hand combat and was able to gain the upper hand against Robin (with some help from Talon) before he had to leave and was able to briefly take on Batman himself (although Wayne was fatigued to an extreme level).
