Black Canary is a fictional superheroine in comic books published by DC Comics. She was created by the writer-artist team of Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino. The character debuted in Flash Comics #86 (August 1947).

One of DC's earliest super-heroines, Black Canary has appeared in many of the company's flagship team-up titles including Justice Society of America and Justice League of America. Since the late 1960s, the character has been paired with archer superhero The Green Arrow professionally and romantically.

IGN rated her its 81st-greatest all-time comic book hero.[1] She was number 26 on Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.[2]
