What’s New In The New 52: Uplink

Posted on July 10, 2013 at 2:39 pm by Joe Blakeslee


Birds Of Prey will be getting a new character named Uplink? Could this be DC’s replacement for Oracle now that Barbra Gordon has returned to being Batgirl? That was the conclusion I jumped to when I first saw the headline, but it turns out that she’s much, much more.

This brightly quaffed new hero has the ability to ‘uplink’ with the minds of other people in order to show them their hearts desire. This makes her much more akin to the Black Mercy plant from Alan Moore’s classic Superman tale “For The Man Who Has Everything.” The only downside is that her powers take a toll on her, making her unwilling to use them and instead rely on her computer skills.

It’s still unclear what role Uplink will play in the Birds Of Prey comic, but her story will begin next Wednesday with Birds Of Prey #22.
