Short intro to the character:

Dinah Laurel Lance, former vigilante and Star City public servant. Laurel was the sister of Sara Lance who has also held the mantle of Canary. Laurel was the former lover/friend/fiance/lawyer/team mate/partner of Oliver Queen. Laurel had previously battled addiction, but she won her battle against her addiction. She turned out a better person than she was before her addiction, managing to inspire the citizens of Star City, both as Laurel Lance and as the Black Canary. She was a very valued member of team Arrow before her death at the hands of Damien Darhk.

Hh2 Combat

Laurel does not carry any long range weapon, therefore most of her training focuses on her h2h ability. Laurel has been trained in boxing by Ted Grant, she has gone through League of Assassins training by Nyssa al ghul and has also trained stick training and boxing with Oliver Queen as well. Laurel's weapon of choice is a tonfa, which is great for close quarters combat. She has on occasion used Sara's bo staff, but later switched it out for the tonfa.

Even before her vigilante training, Laurel was a capable h2h combatant due to her self-defense training.

I have tried to evaluate the next feat time and time again. I Watched it in slow motion, I have broken it down frame by frame to try to come to a conclusion. It is difficult to evaluate because of low frame rate, but for now this goes down as a bullet timing feat.

Canary Cry

Laurel wears a modified version of Sara's sonic device, developed by Cisco Ramon.

The canary cry emits a high frequency sound, able to shatter glass and even send people flying.

Damn man, you're on a roll with these Arrow respect threads.

I always thought Laurel was underrated, but those two bullet feats were super impressive, I had no idea she was that fast.

Her fodder feats are better than I remember. I find all of her feats in Vixen pretty awesome:

She shows great agility and she is capable of tagging Eshu who was keeping up pretty well with Vixen. Also she survives one of his flaming punches that could really damage Ray on his ATOM suit.

@black_arrow: Thanks. Looked "everywhere" for videos on Vixen, but couldn't find any. I'll make sure to add those feats.

I still can't take her fighting skills seriously tbh, but this is a pretty good respect thread.
