Now that CW’s “Arrow” is taking the super heroics up a notch, what better way to kick off the action with the first look at Katie Cassidy Black Canary! We are extremely impressed with the simple yet striking costume design for the fearless heroin. We are unable to confirm if the costume was designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood who designed the costumes for CW’s The Flash and Arrow. Sporting a mask, combat baton, fingerless gloves, tight leather pants, jacket and weapon utility belt, Cassidy looks fighting fit to take on the streets as the Black Canary. The heroine will make her first appearance in the 10th episode of the season, “Left Behind”. There is a very good reason why Cassidy’s Laurel Lance is taking on the identity as Black Canary but that means I have to share some serious spoilers. Catch the next episode on Wednesday, November 19 on CW.

For those of you not in the know, here is a good description for the Black Canary courtesy of dc.wikia.com:
“Black Canary is a superhero vigilante who fights crime using martial arts and a sonic scream attack. She is one of the greatest fighters in the DC Universe, and also a strong tactical mind. Her costume is an attractive black outfit with fishnet stockings and blonde hair, and she is usually seen riding her motorcycle. There have been two Canaries to share the legacy. Dinah Drake was the original during World War II and the Golden Ageof heroes. Her daughter Dinah Lance would take the position during the Silver Age when she grew old enough. Green Arrow fights alongside her most often as they are romantically involved. She has been a member of the Justice Society, the Justice League, Team Arrow and the Birds of Prey. Black Canary was created by Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino, first appearing in Flash Comics #86. (1947) Her more recognizable daughter was introduced by Roy Thomas in Justice League of America #220. (1983)”
