"Ted, watch over my baby girl."



Aspiring to be a police officer, Dinah Drake was trained by her father, Richard Drake, who was a police detective. However, the Gotham City Police Department denied her application. Instead, Drake ran a florist shop and by night, in order to break up street gangs, Dinah Drake became a costumed Mystery Woman called Black Canary. She later joined the Justice Society of America and married her detective friend, Larry Lance. Together, they had a daughter they named Dinah Laurel Lance.

During World War II, the Justice Society helped the Allies defeat Per Degaton. Black Canary used her sonic scream, the Canary Cry, to damage Degaton's powerful Spear of Destiny and ultimately defeat him. Some time later, while on a mission to evacuate an apartment on fire, Canary was buried under debris. Wildcat tried to keep her alive until Dr. Midnite arrived. However, she mustered all her remaining strength to make Wildcat promise he would watch over her daughter for her.



  • The only design difference between Black Canary and her daughter is the mask.
