Starling is a female comic character who features in DC Comics.
A mysterious friend from Black Canary's past, when Starling first joins Black Canary's newly formed Birds of Prey, they're being trailed by a reporter hired by a group of assassins known as the Cleaners. However, both she and Canary are aware of the plan against them, and use the reporter to drawn the Cleaners out into the open. Starling and Canary manage to save the reporter from the Cleaners, but later, when sending the reporter out of the country, he gets a message on his phone and shortly after spontaneously combusts in an explosion. Black Canary called a meeting introducing the group to the newest member Poison Ivy who Starling doesn't trust due to Poison Ivy's background being a villain. Starling even called Poison Ivy "the talking salad".
Starling gets manipululated by Choke and she tries to kill Batgirl, when Batgirl tries to warn Canary that Starling had been compromised, but Canary just tells her that 'Starling is the only person she can trust'. Dinah is later proven wrong when Starling is commanded to kill Katana.
Later, it is revealed theat she used to work for The Penguin, that is probably where she got her codename 'Starling'. She later betrayed the team to Mr. Freeze, taking Strix hostage for the Court of Owls ending her time with the Birds of Prey.
