Birds of Prey Plus

In a recent issue of Batgirl & The Birds of Prey (#16 Nov 2017), a plague has struck the city of Gotham and it appears this sickness only affects the men in the town. To fight this flu-like epidemic, Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress picked up some unexpected help from others and there were some in the line-up pictured below that I had a little trouble identifying due to my being not too familiar with the Batman family in the modern age. By the way, the Batman family of today might actually be larger than the Green Lantern Corps.

Two of the characters below had at one time, in the past dozen or so years, taken on the role of Batgirl. Those two being Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain. In Gotham, they are known as Spoiler and Orphan respectively.

Just to put things in context, in the two-page sequence below, we are watching the reaction of Batgirl and her allies as they are being lectured to by the leader of a radical feminist misandrist group known as the Daughters of Gotham. Within, Lois Lane explains the difference between feminism and misandry (the hatred of man).  They are obviously shocked by what is being said to them.
