Birds of Prey
Song: Gotham City
Artist: R Kelly
“They are called The Birds of Prey – the protectors of New Gotham City.”
This video was made for greensilver for the Festivid Exchange 2009.
I’ve been dying to vid this show for quite some time but I never really got around to do so. When I saw the request for a pinchhitter at the Festivid Exchange, I was totally game. I had 4 days to fit the deadline, so I decided to go with the first song that came to my head – R Kelly’s Gotham City. I thought it would be a good fit to show off the new protectors of Gotham City.
Song: Somewhere I Belong
Artist: Linkin Park
“She is torn between two worlds. During the day, she is just Helena Kyle but at night, she is Huntress, the vigilante roaming the streets of Gotham City.”
Even though this show only lasted for 13 episodes, I loved it to death. Not because of the cheesy plots it had – nope, because it had kickass women in it! I recently was inspired to watch the show again from beginning to end and was totally drawn into the whole “kickass women have their own show” theme.
This video is a tribute to Helena Kyle, daughter of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. Or to Huntress, daughter of Batman and Catwoman.
