The Court of Owls is a secret organization dating hundreds of years back in Gotham City. After a fallout with their secret assassin, Talon, every member was murdered. The members of the Court all wear owl masks to cover their faces.
Batman vs. RobinEdit
Talon attempted to persuade Robin (Damian Wayne) into joining the Court of Owls. Talon betrayed the Grandmaster, revealed to be Bruce Wayne's lover Samantha Vanaver, and seized control of the Court's army of zombified Talons to attack the Batcave. At the end, the Talons are destroyed while the current Talon commits suicide when defeated by Robin.
- The Court of Owls were first created in Batman #3 by Scott Snyder, in 2011.
