Black Heron is the secondary antagonist in the 2017 DuckTales reboot series.
She serves as the main antagonist of the Season 1 episode "From the Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22," a cameo antagonist in the Season 2 finale "Moonvasion" and the secondary antagonist of Season 3. She is the second-in-command and co-founder of the notorious criminal organization FOWL as well as the longtime archenemy of Bentina Beakley.
She is voiced by April Winchell, who also played Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians: The Series, Ma Duskerton in Gravity Falls, Clarabelle Cow in Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers and Hypnotheria in Teamo Supremeo.
Black Heron was once a chemist and had training in martial arts before becoming a criminal at some unknown point. Sometime in the 1960s, Beakley, then known as Agent 22, brings in Black Heron after she tried to carve her face into Mount Neverest.
While in Jail she is approached by a S.H.U.S.H accountant named Bradford Buzzard. He suggested the idea of an organization named O.W.L. (Organization for World Larceny) to her for them to use it to take over the world from the shadows. Heron likes the idea but wants to add an F (standing for fiendish) at the beginning.
Bradford doesn't like the idea as he believes his plan is not evil, but when Heron refuses to help if it is not renamed, Bradford reluctantly accepts. Bradford then releases Heron, telling her they will meet up later than Bradford fakes a breakout to keep his cover. The two then presumably form the organization, with Bradford acting as the shadowy leader and Heron as the field agent.
Bradford later had it replaced with a mechanical one.
She first appeared in the season 1 episode, "The Confidential Casefiles of Agent 22". During what is presumably one of F.O.W.L's first big missions, Black Heron is presumably tasked under Bradford's orders with getting the recipe for an ancient potion (the Gummi Berry Juice) that F.O.W.L. (likely Bradford) wanted to use to make an army of super soldiers. She first tries to buy it, Due to Scrooge's a freelance agent working for S.H.U.S.H's unwillingness to offer any cash from his own pocket, Black Heron won the page with her bid Though she steals it anyway. Before she can escape, however Beakley plants a tracker on her so they can follow her. Heron starts working on pass producing the potion at some point during it Beakley made her way to the top floor of Heron's lab, but unfortunately mistook Heron for Scrooge in the darkness, and is then knocked unconscious by Heron. She then starts recording a video announcing F.O.W.L plans to all the world leaders, but is annoyed at constantly being interrupted by Beakley. While continuing her speech, it is interrupted by Scrooge when he laughed beside her about how she's actually making a bouncing serum, which Heron thinks is still useful and a fight breaks out. Beakley is eventually able to escape using the serum and infuriated, Heron dashed towards her, but missed and instead caused an explosive liquid to spill across the table, and be ignited due to its mixture with the spilled bouncing serums destroying all her serum as well as the recipe book. Heron tries to use her right arm to grab any surviving serum only for another explosion to go off, causing her to lose it.
Black Heron appears in the season finale, "Moonvasion", emerging from the shadows when Bradford announced F.O.W.L. will come out of the shadows.
- Despite being the secondary antagonist of the third season, she is the reason Bradford became a villain in the first place.
- Her present day outfit is a darker colored version of what she wore in the sixties, minus the white trim on her dress; likely a symbolic way of saying she mellowed out under Bradford's guidance.
- She is one of the very few DuckTales villains to die.
- Despite roughly being in her eighties (assuming she was mid-twenties in the 1960s), Heron is quite able-bodied, with only a slouch in her posture showing her age. It's possible her cybernetic enhancements slowed down her aging, as she had noticeable wrinkles under her eyes and around her neck.
