Black Orchid is the legacy name of several characters from the DC Universe. Originally known as Susan Linden-Thorne, she is a vigilante and master of disguise who gains her powers from a connection to The Green. Her successor is Flora Black, a less moral femme fatale. Suzy is the third Orchid, a nearly identical younger sister of Susan Linden. The character has been involved with the Suicide Squad, Parliament of Trees, Shadowpact and Birds of Prey. Alba Garcia is introduced as a new Orchid working for A.R.G.U.S. in The New 52, becoming a member of Justice League Dark.

Black Orchid was created by Sheldon Mayer and Tony DeZuniga, first appearing in Adventure Comics #428. (1973) Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean would later recreate the character in Black Orchid #1 (1988).
