    Laurel Lance (Earth-2: Pre-Crisis)

    For other uses of Black Canary, see Canary (Disambiguation).




    Being a hero kind of sucks. And it never gets any easier because it's the hardest thing that you can do.
    — Laurel Lance to Mia Queen[src]

    Dinah Laurel Lance,[13] or simply Laurel Lance, is a reformed criminal from Earth-2 and was a lieutenant of the villainous speedster, Zoom. After being turned into a Metahuman, she began using the moniker Black Siren. Sent to Earth-1, Lance was part of Zoom's Metapocalypse and was sent to fight The Flash. She was ultimately defeated and incarcerated in the Pipeline until she was broken out by Adrian Chase half a year later. As soon as she was freed, she joined multiple criminal organizations including Prometheus', Cayden James', Ricardo Diaz's and even led her own crew of mercenaries. However, she was reformed after getting to know her Earth-1 doppelgänger's father and her ex-boyfriend's Earth-1 doppelgänger. Soon after Oliver Queen's imprisonment, Lance became the district attorney of Star City while impersonating her Earth-1 doppelgänger. After briefly being a criminal, she chose to stand by her friends and took up the mantle of Black Canary, which she maintained after returning to Earth-2.

    In the New Multiverse, Lance was recreated identically to her original self. However, her Earth-Prime doppelgänger was still dead, which made her feel guilty until Quentin told her that it is not her fault that Earth-Prime Lance was not brought back as her presence was not needed to change. Like in the Original Multiverse, uses the moniker Black Canary and kept herself as a vigilante. After Queen's funeral, she time travelled to 2040 and formed the Canaries with Dinah Drake, who was mysteriously sent to 2040 with her history erased, and Mia Queen, who was given her Pre-Crisis counterpart's memories. Together, they defeated Trevor and stayed in that time as the vigilantes of Star City 2040.

    Oliver Queen's Funeral[edit | hide]

    You're all of the people who Oliver would have wanted his sacrifice to bring back, and Laurel, she... she would have been on that list, too, if it wasn't for me. Oliver's death, it fixed everything else. Why didn't it fix this, too?
    Because, sweetheart, there is nothing about you that needed to be fixed.

    • Marksmanship: With her past as a criminal, Lance was proficient in handling sidearms.[17]
