One of DC’s earliest superheroines, the title Black Canary has appeared in many of the company’s flagship team-up titles, including Justice Society of America and Justice League of America. Since the late 1960s, the character has been paired with archer superhero the Green Arrow, both professionally and romantically. As well as featuring in many Green Arrow stories, she is closely associated with the Batman family of characters, and specifically Barbara Gordon, her best friend, with whom she leads the superhero team Birds of Prey.

Black Canary, known by her real name Laurel Lance, was a renowned public servant in Starling City, where she served as the Assistant District Attorney. After her younger sister’s death, Lance decided to become a vigilante to defend her city, taking on the name Black Canary. Using the law to fight crime by day and vigilantism to fight crime by night, Black Canary was truly committed to bringing justice to Starling City. Black Canary and Green Arrow had a romantic relationship that was often complicated by their roles as vigilante heroes. Black Canary was stabbed and killed as she attempted to stop Damien Darhk, the leader of the villainous H.I.V.E., from escaping prison. After her death, it was revealed to the citizens of Starling City that Laurel Lance was, in fact, Black Canary.
