Beginning life as a mere mortal with hand-to-hand combat skills and a penchant for undercover investigating, the Black Canary would go on to deveop a "canary cry" capable of incapacitiating foes and shattering objects, the character would go through several permutations before joining the Arrowverse, bringing heat to this valuable and collectible issue.
