Wow. I never knew the GA Black Canary had the ability to command birds like that.

kate said...

...The hell?

(Where (and when) /is/ that from?)

Brandon said...

Bird carpeting. Awesome.

Nick said...

she even had a GL-esque oath happening. When I become a supervillian, all enimies will be desposed of via giant turntable.

Brett said...

Nick no one will know what the giant turntable is, go with a huge CD door the crushes them or something.

"Nya-Ha-Ha! You will DIE in my ingenious iPod of Death!"

nah...not quite the same.

More than likely, the iPod will be filled with illegally downloaded trax and the villainous Pirate will get 20 years to life.

Curses!

One word - awesome.

Forget the Canary Cry, let her command birds again!

Sleestak said...

And here i thought giant props were only in Batman. That *is* awesome.

Ragnell said...

What the fu-? Where did THAT power come from?

Do actual black canaries even exist?

Monty said...

They must have been thrown pretty high for her to recite all that poetry in time.

Ummm....how did the black canaries hold up the people AND keep flapping their wings to fly?

I thought the greatest BC page ever was the one where she was tied up in her underwear in that Brave and Bold issue.

JP said...

I especially like the way the lad-in-distress lapses into deadpan silence after uttering his cry for help. Clearly, he is as bemused at BC's bird-summoning power as we are.

JP said...

Oh, is that Larry Lance? Guess he's just blase about it by now - he did get tied up and rescued by BC quite a bit.

Hurry- peck through the ropes!

Big Mike said...

Those are some big canaries....

I guess I can stop working on my 8-track of death.

David C said...

This page really has everything! Perhaps my favorite part is how, without comic book physics and dialogue techniques, she'd almost certainly go splat before she could get out half of that oath!

Yeah, I gotta go with Michael on this one...

Ragnell -

Golden Age Black Canary briefly had the power to command canaries, complete with her cool oath.

Didn't last long and was never mentioned again, although there was an issue in the Bronze Age JLA where she was quite upset at having to beat up some black birds.

(This is when Dinah was the original article, shuttled over from Earth-2, instead of Dinah Jr.)

I think this was the only story where any HINT of that power came up. The Comic Treadmill did a pretty thorough review of the Black Canary Archives a few months back.
