Green Arrow


Green Arrow first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in 1941. His secret identity is Oliver Queen, billionaire and former mayor of fictional Star City; and is best known to his associates as Ollie.

Dressed like Robin Hood, Green Arrow is an archer who invents trick arrows with various special functions, such as a glue arrow, a net arrow, explosive arrow, time bomb arrow, grappling arrow, fire extinguishing arrow, flash arrow, tear gas arrow, cryonic arrow, a boxing-glove arrow, and even a kryptonite arrow.

Throughout his first twenty-five years, Green Arrow was not a significant hero. In the late 1960s, however, writers chose to have him lose his fortune, giving him the then-unique role of streetwise crusader for the working class and the disadvantaged. In 1970, he was paired with the more law-and-order-oriented hero Green Lantern in a groundbreaking, socially conscious comic book series. Since then, he has been popular among comic book fans and most writers have taken an urban, gritty approach to the character.

Green Arrow's appearance in Justice League: Task Force isn't much to talk about. His return to the fighting game realm in Injustice: Gods Among Us is more like his actual fighting game debut. NetherRealm made him into a pretty interesting 2D fighting game character. I'd say he's one of the most fun characters to use in Injustice.

Personally, I never really cared for Green Arrow... (and you can't say I'm biased for Marvel this time, because I don't care much for Hawkeye either). I dunno... I guess shooting a bow & arrow really well just doesn't seem like a legit superpower to me. lol. He's also very much a Robin Hood knock-off... not exactly an "original" design. Even when I was a little kid... I thought this guy could've used a more original name. "OHHH I GET IT!!!! He wears GREEN.... and he shoots...... arrows! Brilliant!" ^o^ In fairness, he is a classic DC character and I'm sure he has a few fans out there.
