No, this is not some fan-fiction made by a teenage boy. This is an actual story that took place in The Brave and the Bold 166. Black Canary is bound and gagged by the Penguin after being caught during a stake-out. I have to admit, it is pretty hot to see the sexy Black Canary captured and tied up. She was also stripped to her underwear as well. How this comic was ever approved by the Comics Code Authority is a mystery.
The story of The Brave and the Bold 166 is that the Penguin breaks out of prison and finds himself a gang. The Black Canary discovers the Penguin’s revenge plan and attempts to prevent the murders he plans to commit. Batman finds her and tags along. They both enjoy the team-up and flirt with each other. When they split up later, Black Canary is captured and tied up in a chair while wearing only underwear. Batman comes to the rescue and saves the day.
Batman’s rescue of Black Canary from the clutches of the Penguin would have been just another day on the job for the Caped Crusader. But with Black Canary stripped down to her underwear and tied up in a chair, Batman’s job had gotten much more interesting. I mean, who wouldn’t want to save a beautiful woman in distress, especially one as stunning as Black Canary? It’s a good thing the Dynamic Duo was on the case because if it were any other hero, they might have been too distracted to get the job done.
As much as the idea of a woman in distress being saved by a man is a common trope in comic books, it cannot be denied that it is still popular among audiences. The Black Canary’s capture by the Penguin may be seen by some as a cheap plot device to titillate readers, but it also adds a layer of tension and drama to the story. Comics are, after all, a form of entertainment, and there is nothing wrong with enjoying a bit of excitement and suspense.
Despite being the savior in many of his heroics, Batman was not able to save himself from falling for the fierce and independent Black Canary, which is revealed throughout the issue. Batman tries to remain professional, but the sexual tension between the two is palpable. It is clear to see that while Black Canary may be the one who got tied up, it is Batman who is caught in her web. He is drawn to her even more as she continues to display her strength and conviction in the face of her predicament.
I do not think I have to explain to you why owning this collectible (Affiliate Link) should be on your priority list. Beside seeing the sexy Black Canary captured, the story is great. The main story is called “Requiem for 4 Canaries” but there is another bonus story as well. This comic was published in 1980, a time where the paper it was printed on was cheaper, but the comic was much lengthier and gave you your money’s worth. So break that piggy-bank of yours, give it a read, and stop being so cheap!
