The ninja pupils of the shinobi known as the Grey Ghost
return as the last of the Young Gotham Shinobi[link]
to get updated looks after Robin's
return from the Red Hand
. with an unexpected tragedy befalling their master, the team disbands. They return to their respective clans, but their loyalty is tested when Reaper
attempts to rebuild the Ghostclan
and the Spectre
's kunoichi apprentice, Secret
Catclan Shinobi, Jounin
When Grey Ghost agreed to take on the heirs of the most powerful Noble shinobi clans as his students, he gave them names that would identify them as practitioners of the Ghost Arts, like his master(The Spectre) had done with him and his team. Wildcat was given the name Bakeneko-kun (Young Ghost Cat)
. Grey Ghost taught him the Ghost Fist Technique
and fighting style. The strikes appear at first to have no impact, but in fact have a devastating delayed reaction.
- Wildcat's updated look borrows elements from Tobirama Senju, The Second Hokage. I gave him a half jacket to replace the shirt and moved the fur on his outfit from his sleeves to his collar. I also gave him pants rolled up to the claves to replace the shorts. As Wildcat is my manga representative of Ted Grant, I gave him the name Tetsu, which can translate as "iron" and "philosophy" signifying his strong will and hard fighting style.Black Canary:
BlackBird Clan Kunoichi, Chunin
Moriko was given the name, Yosuzume (Singing Bird Spirit)
by her sensei. She was tutored on the Ghost Kick Technique
and fighting style. a kick so fast and powerful, that even when you think you've dodged it, it still makes contact. She has found her voice(so to speak) and gained the confidence she lacked prior to becoming the Grey Ghost's pupil. She returns to the Blackbird Clan, while still doing missions for her mother on the side with the Birds of Prey
- I used Ino's Shippuden look for Canary's update. She's dropped the ponytails but kept the part in her hair. I gave her a jacket similar to her mom's and gave her a scarf to protect her vocal chords. She , like the others still wears the same fishnet gear. Also gave her black lipstick like her mom's.Question:
Enigma Clan Leader
Question was given the name, Noperra-bo (Faceless Ghost)
by his sensei. Not only has he returned to The Enigma Clan...he is now its leader. His father, The Riddler
, imprisoned on Arkham Island
, and his brother, Cluemaster
disgraced, he is attempting to take the clan down a different path, but he's learning that it may not be as easy as he believed, and he's also learning that things he believed may not have been exactly as they seemed as well. Things didn't end quite well between he and Huntress
prior to her departure to work with her uncle, Hitman
. He was trained in the Ghost Stepping Technique
and fighting style. When utilizing it, strikes targeted on him seem to never land.
- Question's outfit is pretty much the same except for the robe. I have him with the Straw hat (that I introduced in his concept sketch)hanging on his back. Still based on Gaara's pre timeskip look with a Kakashi style mask and blindfold.
- All of the Ghost Art techniques use up a considerable amount of energy, which is why they aren't employed all the time on a daily basis.
- Grey Ghost agreed to be these three's teacher for a reason, with his departure it is unclear if that reason will be revealed...
- Reaper's new Ghostclan will seek out these three, whether it is for recruitment (as pupils of a clan member) or assassination (for being in possession of secret techniques) remains to be seen...
- Although Secret is The Spectre's pupil, she is the only one that he has revealed himself to, so it is not believed that she is...until she fights!
- Wildcat still has feelings for Black Canary, but not necessarily the same feelings that they started out as due to her close relationship with Jade Archer...
- They each acquire more of their respective clans' techniques when they return. Tetsu has incresed his stealth and taijutsu skills, while Moriko has learned to hone her Canary Cry
sonic scream into a hypnotic Bird Song
. It is unclear if she has learned her mother's Bird Call
