    People who don't follow comics... don't follow comics. So unless we get another film that doesn't feature Harley, I think that ship has sailed unfortunately...

    As I said before , every now and then I like to go back to the beginning.
    Here's Black Canary in her first outing as a solo feature (without Johnny Thunder).

    Originally from Flash Comics #92 (February 1948) and reprinted in Detective Comics #442 (August-September 1974) which is where I first read it:


    To be continued . . .

    I remember all the times the pair would get framed for crimes and have to run from the police...

    I'm with MajorHoy, I love those old Black Canary stories. I would love to see a Sandman Mystery Theatre style retelling of them. Or a Netflix's Daredevil style modernization of them.

    But let's leave out James Robinson-like retcons of Dinah and Ted Knight cheating on their spouses . . .

    Was it ever revealed that Larry Lance had previously been the partner of Dinah's father on the police force prior to Black Canary's origin in DC Special Series #10 (1978)?

    Look at that bad ass. I can't believe people just want her to be a cog in Green Arrow's story arc. She deserves way more. Black Canary: Unfinished Business in Secret Origins #50 by Alan Brennert is one of the few stories that had me in tears.

    I like to think even Ollie fans would like to see Dinah treated well and kick butt (I know I do).

    It's not the fans, it's the writers.

    The more I look at the older comics from Hard Travelling Heroes to the Satellite era JLA to Grell's run to Dixon's, the more I think that these two were always meant to break apart at some point and that 21st century are only throwing them back together out of a misguided sense of nostalgia. Nothing I've read has ever sold me on these two as a couple.

    I believe Jose Luis Garica-Lopez drew this piece.

    I really liked how the Rebirth run handled their relationship .
