Red Canary's Anticipated DC Debut Reveals Her Powers and Abilities

Nov 22, 2022 · 7


Dark Crisis: The Dark Army #1, the latest one-shot to tie into Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, finally gives some insights into the mysterious new character, Red Canary, revealing their powers and motivations for becoming a hero.

The issue reveals that Red Canary does not have any formal powers but is a master of martial arts, specifically jiu-jitsu. She also carries around high-tech escrima sticks, which she stole from an unnamed villain. (While she does mention that she is "working on" learning how to fly to Damian Wayne / Robin, it appears she is joking.) As for her motivations for fighting against Pariah and the Dark Army, Red Canary says that she wants to help people while carrying on the torch of Dinah Drake / Black Canary

Red Canary made her official DC debut in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #3. However, she was only in one panel and did not have a speaking role. Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths writer Joshua Williamson announced her debut back in August 2022 with art by Dan Mora. While her identity was not revealed at the time, fans pointed out that he costume resembled Dinah's and that she shares some resemblance with Emiko Queen, a sidekick to Oliver Queen / Green Arrow.

Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths' Red Canary is not the first time the mantle has come up in the DC Universe. At one point in her superhero career, Dinah had a vision of her mother, the original Black Canary, becoming the leader of the League of Assassins. However, in this alternate reality, Dinah's mother went by the codename Red Canary.

While Red Canary's role in the remaining issues of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths remains a mystery, she was featured in the "Lazarus Planet" promotional art, teasing a significant role for her there. Helmed by Mark Waid, the event will see the DC Universe engulfed by chaos after the Lazarus Volcano's eruption in Batman vs. Robin #4. Some of the upcoming changes include Bruce Wayne / Batman wearing Doctor Fate's Helmet of Nabu, Martian Manhunter becoming a Doomsday-like monster and Jon Kent dressed in his father's Electric Blue suit.

Before "Lazarus Planet," Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths will reach its climactic conclusion with Issue #7 and Dark Crisis: War Zone releasing in December.
