Green Arrow & Black Canary and Hawkeye & Mockingbird



Now that *** SPOILER for Arrow fans who aren't caught up **** the death that has been teased all of the current season was revealed to be Laurel Lance, the (second) Black Canary, the series could go a few ways.  Laurel whispered something to Ollie before she was declared dead, so the whole thing could be a fake by the two of them, which would anger fans I think.  Felicity could be come the new Black Canary, which would anger fans even more. Maybe they will just give the character a rest.  What I hope will happen, though, is that by next season Caity Lotz will return from her time on DC's Legends of Tomorrow as the White Canary and reclaim her role as the Original Black Canary.  I always prefered her in the role anyway.

Although this is the first appearance of all of these heroes together, Black Canary and Mockingbird have crossed paths before on the blog.  Green Arrow and Hawkeye have met a few times - They first met in one of my very earliest STF covers... then they were at odds with a few fellow Avengers along for the tale... Next up they faced off against The Hulk and Solomon Grundy... and the last time we saw them it was time to hone their skills...

Let me guess: they're facing off against Sportsmaster, Tigress, and the Death Throws.

Through all these stories that Hawkeye and GA have been in together, I'd hope that they keep up the relationship they established in the JLA/Avengers crossover: fiercely competitive, yet full of deep respect. In fact, I think it'd be a powerful cover to show what would amount to a retread of one of my favorite moments from that story: one of the two down, and the other picking up his fallen comrade's bow to exact justice on his behalf.

I'd buy a real-word version of this team-up just for that, Bob.

Great cover, Ross....

I would buy this comic just to read the scene where Black Canary and Mockingbird sit down over coffee to discuss which of their husbands can be the biggest macho jerk. My money is on Ollie.

I would also like to read about the guys swapping home-made chili recipes.

Cary, if it could happen even as an online fan comic, I'd happily write it... real words and all. ;)

An Earth 2 Black Canary shows up on the Flash, and the Black Canary in the comics who fell in love with Ollie was from Earth 2, I am seeing some possibilities.

Oh, you may be on to something, Ed!
