The issue starts off right from the last with Canary wondering who the White Canary is and why she seems so familiar. She and Huntress do their best to tag team her as Oracle calls in backup with the White Canary clearly being at a bit of an advantage.

Backup arrives soon after in the form of Hawk and Dove. White Canary breaks out of Huntress' hold while Hawk tries beelining White Canary. Interestingly enough it doesn't lead to the end of the fight like I thought it might (him being a meta and all)

The team then has to abandon the fight after the cops show up with the intent of arresting them all as some mysterious enemy (presumably White Canary or someone she's working for) has framed Black Canary for a murder. The group is forced to flee, Penguin who's somewhat conscious tells them to go towards his club the Iceberg Lounge so the group works their way past the cops. Also, in amusing fashion Penguin seems to be taken aback by the beauty of a certain blue bird.

But on route to the lounge....

Hmm, a mention of Sin alongside the eerie White Canary.....

And the issue ends with Barbara getting ready to give the enemy a beatdown as you see a bunch of screens with happenings of Brightest Day like Aquaman, Jade, the White Lantern power battery and so on....        

And there's one/two big spoilers from the issue I wished to circumvent and didn't mention in the post, go get the issue! :P

I might be completely off, given my limited knowledge of the character and lack of desire to reread and see if it was covered at the moment, but I'm going to guess it's Sin's biological mother. Would explain the pushes toward Sin without it necessarily being her.

Has anyone considered Cheshire? I keep seeing people suggest WC might be an eight year old girl, but no one seems to think the Asian assassin with rage issues towards Black Canary abandoning her "daughter" might be the Asian assassin who recently lost her daughter, who is coincidentally BC's "granddaughter."

Or is that completely insane?

It might fly as a theory. Reason I can't buy it is that Cheshire's getting so much play elsewhere right now, in Titans Villain Whosis and Rise of Arsenal. Seems to me if DC editorial knew they were going to pull this kind of surprise return for Cheshire they'd have timed it differently, kept Jade on the back burner and out of readers' minds.

Then again - DC Editorial. *sighs*

Dinah would have recognized Cheshire from the events in Sensei and Student. And there is no way Cheshire is young enough to elicit a "kiddo" which is what she calls the White Canary here.

I only thought it because the anger seemed to make it fit, in a way.

Not that I'm hoping for it to be that or anything. White, blonde woman saves Asian girl and brings her to America is problematic enough without an evil birth mother.

she let her daughter be trained by the League of Assassins. Unless Sin was kidnapped she's pretty far away from good.

Not sure why but I always thought it would have been kidnapped or that her bio-parents are dead.

Possibly because I just didn't want to dwell on the idea that nearly every Asian woman is evil or has been evil in the DCU.

With one exception all the evil Asian women they show are connected to the League of Assasins.

Besides wasn't Sin supposed to be special in some way? Have her kidnapped and it makes me think of Kobra. Who I think sucks as a character.
