Synopsis:
Thinking that she's on the same side of the law as he, Johnny Thunder enlists the aid of a "blonde bombshell" of a woman. Johnny needs to get a mask from a safe. Without this mask a criminal will be unable to pull of a jewel heist later that night. Unbeknownst to Johnny, her motives for helping Johnny are impure. The girl, Dinah Drake, is really trying to steal the jewels herself, and so is happy to help Johnny hinder the "competition". Thanks to the Thunderbolt, neither she nor the criminals are successful at stealing the jewels. She leaves the scene quickly after the Thunderbolt's power is revealed, having stolen only the heart of the young Johnny Thunder.

Notes:
Having been introduced in a story featuring Johnny Thunder, it's altogether appropriate for the original Black Canary to have died--well, okay, just her body--in a story featuring the Thunderbolt (Justice League of America #219-220.) Indeed, it's kind of touching how Johnny and his Thunderbolt played such a significant role throughout her life, even though he never actually "got" the Birdie. It's one of DC's lesser known, but most interesting, unrequieted love stories. And this short story is where it all starts.
