Two Black Canaries In The DC Comics Universe Again

DC Comics' Batman: Urban Legends #6 got a lot of attention a few months ago for what happened with Tim Drake and Bernard Dowd, eventually paying off next month in Batman: Urban Legends #10. But it also revealed something about Black Canary. And of course, it was written by DC Comics Continuity Czar, Joshua Williamson, and drawn by Trevor Hairsine, Rain Beredo and Steve Wands. Taking place in the T.R.U.S.T. organisation currently messing up Deathstroke, we discover that Dinah Lance, the Black Canary was not the only person who worked with them.

And can be used as leverage. In today's Deathstroke Inc #3, also written by Josh Williamson that relationship continues to play out.
