Villainess no. 34: Magpie a.k.a Margaret Pye
Female bat villains aren’t exactly common but then again, nor is Magpie. This retro styled rogue was unfortunate enough to be the first villain to go up against the combined efforts of both Batman and Superman in post-crisis history. Although she’s in no possession of any powers she’s not exactly powerless. Head of her own gang of thugs, Magpie is a tough lady with an eye for shiny goods.
Magpie died due to the second Tally Man and was briefly resurrected during the blackest night. Although she has not appeared in the New 52 yet, she has got a spot as a villain in the upcoming animated series : Beware the Batman.
Magpie still has yet to appear in the New 52 but did appear as a key villain in the series Beware The Batman with a new origin and a new name, Margaret Sorrow.
