2010-10-10 05:05:19 aaronmoish Bio The current holder of the Black Canary mantle. Daughter of Dinah Drake Lance, the original Black Canary. Post-Crisis she is the only one of the two Canaries to have had a relationship with Oliver Queen (the Green Arrow)--one that started when she was maybe 20 and he about 35. Also, her mother, Dinah Drake Lance (Black Canary I) is dead. She was a founding member of the JLA and the Birds of Prey. Pre-Crisis her history is a good deal more complicated. She's still the daughter of Black Canary (I), but she spent much of her formative years in the Thunderbolt's dimension. Apparently, her sonic cry, as a baby, was so uncontrolled, that the only solution was to remove her entirely from the "real" plane of existence. While in this other dimension, though, she was kept maturing in a state of suspended animation. In order to keep the parents from worrying about their child, Johnny's Thunderbolt removed all knowledge from them that they had done any of this. They returned to Earth 2 believing that their child had died. Years later, after Dinah Drake Lance had moved to Earth 1 when her husband died, Black Canary (I) became exposed to radiation that was killing her. Not knowing how to save her, Superman learned of Thunderbolt's earlier deception. Together, they decided to transfer Black Canary (I)'s life essence into the body of her daughter. They also intrigued to keep this act of transferrence from Dinah once the process was complete. Thus, Black Canary (I) literally became her daughter.

Green Arrow was similarly kept in the dark, though one wonders how he couldn't have noticed the difference between the two bodies in more "intimate" moments. Perhaps he didn't have time to notice before the Crisis hit a short time thereafter.

2010-10-10 05:05:19 aaronmoish Notes It's probably a good thing all that conspiracy with Dinah Laurel Lance happened prior to the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Imagine the repercussions if the current Green Arrow, already angry about the mindwipes that occurred during Identity Crisis also discovered that the current Dinah was also the former Dinah, but Superman had helped devise a plan to keep that little fact from him!
