Green Arrow

green_arrow_by_wil_woodsGreen Arrow is a vigilante “superhero”. He fights crime using archery, martial arts, and technology. He is a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist turned outspoken socially progressive politician. As a child, Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) idolized Robin Hood. He was mildly traumatized the first time he accidentally killed an animal, but when his mother and father were mauled by lions in a tragic safari accident his hesitation to shoot cost them their lives. Oliver was devastated. He became a thrill-seeking drunken playboy with no direction for his life. Everything changed when he fell off his boat in the middle of the ocean and washed ashore on the remote isolated Starfish Island clutching a bow. Queen mastered his bow and developed his skill as a hunter. Oliver eventually found his way back to Star City to use his newly found skills to protect his city.
