The character of the Canary, Arrow’s distinct take on the fishnet-sporting, eardrum-bursting Black Canary, emerged earlier this season and quickly became a fan favorite. The masked identity of Sara Lance (as opposed to Dinah Lance in the comics), the Canary is a breathtaking vigilante who was forged within the League of Assassins and always seems just one small push away from darkness.
Sooner or later, the past always comes calling. For most people, this can be a problem. But for a mask-wearing vigilante, it can be downright deadly. In tonight’s all new Arrow, entitled “Birds of Prey,” Oliver Queen must try to right a past wrong as Jessica De Gouw’s Helena Bertinelli—better known to DC Comics fans as the Huntress—returns to Starling City.
For the past two months, Arrow fans have watched in eager anticipation as the enigmatic female figure known as “the Canary” has emerged from the shadows and become an important part of Oliver’s past, present and very likely future.
Of course, anyone who knows comic books and particularly Green Arrow comics knows that “the Canary” is shorthand for Black Canary—Birds of Prey front woman, occasional Oliver Queen paramour and one of the most well-known female characters in comics.

After that, it’s off to the DC office where the pair interview Arrow’s Black Canary, Caity Lotz, discuss the world of Earth 2 with new writer Tom Taylor and go behind the scenes with a look at the popular DC Comics Bombshells line of collectibles.
Ah Valentine’s Day. That time of year where love saturates the air like cheap air freshener in a dorm the day of a parental visit. You literally can’t escape it. No matter how hard you try. It’s everywhere. Every. Where.
In the spirit of this wonderful love-filled holiday (and in the midst of our lonely nights eating ice cream on the couch while watching back-to-back marathons of Justice League Unlimited and Love Connection) our cookie-dough addled brains began to wonder: what would it be like to date in the DC Universe?
