12 Reasons Why Black Canary Deserves Respect For Being An Awesome Hero

Many Arrow fans tend to hate Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) but no one can deny that she has redeemed herself after taking on the Black Canary persona.

Some Olicity fans may say otherwise but we can scream louder than a Canary Cry that Black Canary is an awesome hero!
