Who Would Win: Black Canary vs. Silver Banshee

Welcome to our speculative stadium, where legends duke it out and winner takes all! All what? No one knows! We’re just here to have fun!

This week’s fight (suggested in the long-ago time of February by @darkstarz) is in all likelihood our loudest ever:

Black Canary vs. Silver Banshee!


Black Canary is an expert martial artist (who has actually defeated Batman more than once) who also possesses the superhuman ability of an ultrasonic scream called the Canary Cry. Silver Banshee has supernatural strength and durability in addition to her own incredibly powerful scream.

If Black Canary and Silver Banshee were to fight, who do you think would win? (Apart from the ear plug industry, who may or may not have set up the fight for their own benefit).

  • Black Canary
  • Silver Banshee

I mean, it’s the insurance industry I would look to. Standard earplugs won’t protect me from the crumbling buildings falling on me.

Without plot protection…

… for the showdown, they both have sonic screams that are going to cause epic amounts of damage, and throw one another around. But Siobhan has the supernatural strength and resistance to injury that can go the distance in a fight with a Kryptonian. Dinah can take a solid punch, but despite her mad ninja skills, her strength and injury resistance is still that of an extremely fit athlete, not supernatural. In the scream-off, she can’t get in close enough to engage, so she’s just victim to getting thrown around.

Dinah’s also been pretty lax with her identity lately, so if Siobhan knows this fight is looming, she’s got the death wall behind the sonics, assuming she did some junior detective work. But even without that, I’m pretty sure this ends with Dinah impaled on a piece of rebar and buried in rubble. Dinah might strike first, and more frequently, and even be able to tactically avoid getting caught in Siobhan’s wail for a while, but Siobhan is going to have no hesitation about tearing the landscape apart. Dinah’s efforts to minimize civilian casualties will ultimately be her downfall.

Well hello there G.L. and everyone else. :wave: :sunglasses:

Quite the loud match up for sure. :joy:

I’d would watch the fight on mute on my TV as I think both Black Canary and Silver Banshee probably would only use their screams once… Then it would be more of a brawl to end the fight… :thinking:

In the end, I see it will be Black Canary being declared the victor. :00_birds_of_prey:

And as a victory celebration… Black Canary puts on a concert! :grin:

Here you go @DickGrayson_TheBoyFriendWonder and @Reaganfan78, this here below should be a better sounding time for you. :superman_hv_4: :musical_note:

Also many thanks to @Razzzcat for introducing this wonderful tune in last Halloween’s scavenger hunt. :grin:

I trust you are aware that this is one of six tracks released by Black Canary (Caveboy + The Receivers + The Van Arks), including a Bauhaus cover?

How about Helspont, from WildC.A.T.S, vs. Extant, the heavy from Zero Hour?

The battle of the '90s heavyweights that aren’t really heavyweights anymore! :nerd_face:

As for the titular bout, I know Black Canary would win, but I still tossed a vote Silver Banshee’s way, as she’s one of my favorite villains from my favorite Superman run.

Its solid, right?! I dig that track the most. :notes: :dancer:t2: :00_black_canary:

The whole album was technically included, as well as in our Canary spotlight when we read the book it goes with recently—I’m positive @ajm08g knows. :sunglasses: Did you like it @keath?

I’m torn on whether to give this a thumbs up @Vroom! :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Well, I gave this :point_up:t2: a thumbs-up, so… :cowboy_hat_face:

John Byrne’s rendition of Silver Banshee is worth it. She screams “badass”, and then some.

I loved it - both the book and the EPs - and just found out Caveboy released a full length last year, so grabbed that, too! (I’m a sucker for anything Bauhaus related.)

A few of my favorite covers to feature SB:

She was also seen on JLU and DCSHG, among other productions.

What I like with Silver Banshee (and I’ll admit I’ve only read her in Superman comics) is how Superman is extra vulnerable to her abilities because of his superhearing. It’s just interesting how something that is usually a strength of his actually becomes a weakness.
