Dinah Drake operated as the "mystery woman" known as Black Canary during World War II as a member of the Justice Society of America, fighting alongside them against the likes of the Ultra-Humanite who at the time was in the guise of actress Dolores Winters. Her post-war exploits are unknown, though she has appeared at the rally in Washington, D.C. in which all costumed superheroes were to appear by Presidential decree to show their loyalty, meeting up with her fellow All-Star Squadron member and ally Johnny Chambers (Johnny Quick) who showed up with his former newsreel cameraman Tubby Watts to film the event for posterity. At the time of the rally Dinah was planning on getting married to a private investigator that she fell in love with. During the rally, Joan Dale (Miss America) publicly exposed Tex Thompson as being the Ultra-Humanite and attempted to also expose Dynaman as being Adolf Hitler in Daniel Dunbar's body when the Ultra-Humanite had Robert Crane (Robotman) silence her by murdering her in public. Rex Tyler (Hourman) took over for Joan Dale in the exposure of both Thompson and Dunbar, causing Dynaman to show his true colors and to attack the various superheroes present. It is not known how involved she was in the battle with Dynaman, or if she survived it.
