There is hardly anything quite as special as a character’s first appearance. The same goes for Black Canary’s Flash Comics debut in a Johnny Thunder arc. Initially premiering as a crimefighter disguising herself as a criminal, it wasn’t long before Black Canary received a solo venture of her own. When
artist Carmine Infantino first began realizing the character on the page, he went for a strong and sexy look. Without question, he nails the sentiment quite well with Black Canary’s blue and black attire.
Beneath a blue jacket, she wears a black top. The theme of blue continues to both her pants and her boots, the former of which are covered in black fishnets. Black Canary’s Golden Age design is simple, yet it works. What’s fascinating is that the core aspects of her costume never get too much fancier than this. She was truly ahead of her time.
