History

  When millionaire Oliver Queen fell overboard, he was washed up on a deserted island where he was forced to learn how to hunt with a bow and arrow in order to survive. He eventually escaped from the island by overpowering some drug smugglers and handing them over to the authorities. Changed by his experiences, he decided to give something back to society, in as exciting a way as possible - becoming a crime-fighter, using his archery skills for good. Dubbed Green Arrow, he took on a sidekick, Speedy, who was also his ward, Roy Harper. Green Arrow either lost or gave up his vast wealth (accounts vary), and became a hero more permanently, fighting alongside the Justice League of America, where he met and fell in love with Black Canary.

  However, he was unable to settle down, and even after founding a florist shop with his lover, he proved unfaithful and left on a cross-American adventure which culminated in his death in a plane bombing, after which his son Connor Hawke took over the role. However, in recent months he resurfaced in Star City, having been rescued from death by Hal Jordan. Here, he has rebuilt his life and operates as Green Arrow once more, often alongside his son and other allies.
