Black Canary is the name for two superheroines in the DC Universe: both named Dinah Lance. Dinah, the current Black Canary is the field leader of the super-team the Birds of Prey. 

Dinah DrakeEdit

Dinah Drake was the original Black Canary who fought crime in the 1940's and 50's.

Golden AgeEdit

The youth and parentage of the original Dinah Drake remain largely unknown.  Dinah Drake was a florist who secretly fought crime by night as the Black Canary. Before Black Canary made a name for himself as a hero, she was attempting to infiltrate a gang when she was interrupted by Johnny Thunder. Soon, she became the Black Canary and cultivated a successful crime fighting career, even joining the Justice Society of America. She also eventually married Larry Lance, a Gotham City Police Officer she was romantically interested in for a long time.

Later, she and the other members of the Justice Society end up having adventures with the Justice League of America, a superhero team from an alternate reality to her own.
