Green Arrow: Emerald Archer
Green Arrow is the man they call Oliver Queen, another billionaire that becomes a hero through a tragedy. Originally created as kind of a Batman resembling character that grew into much more. Being that his Green Arrow persona has no super powers, except for being an excellent marksman with a bow and arrow and did I mention rich which allows him to invent numerous arrows. He is a comic book Robin Hood that has been portrayed in CW's Smallville and now Arrow. I just seen Arrow the other day (premier date), I wanted to see if anyone feels the same way I do about it. My opinions about it are below and more on another page that you can find below. Also, including a bunch of cool Green Arrow Stuff/facts.
The Green Arrow
Green Arrow has the money to get around but he mainly protects Star City. With his arsenal of different types of arrows like the comical boxing glove arrow and many more gadgets. He acts like a Robin Hood Stealing back things that were stolen from others and also protecting people from harms way such as muggers and other criminal organizations. Also, becoming a prominent member of the Justice League.
Green Arrow's early sidekick was Speedy this was when the green arrow character resembled Batman (Speedy being like Robin). The archer also teamed up with Black Canary a few times and eventually gets married to her. The Hero that Green Arrow teamed up with that got him more popularity was when joining Green Lantern. Most of the time Green Arrow works solo though and thats the way he likes it, usually. In the picture to the right Green Arrow kills Prometheus.

He actually looks a lot like a Batman sidekick with his new look. Does anyone else see the resemblance?
Green Arrow and Green Lantern
Picture by James Lee Stone
A obvious pair that they would use together. But, not just because they are both green. These are some of my favorite Green Arrow comics any time these two are together, its usually funny and awesome to see them fight sometimes. Their counter personalities really make a great comic book to read.

Red Arrow AKA Speedy AKA Arsenal - Roy Harper
He is Green Arrow's sidekick until he becomes apart of Teen Titans as Arsenal. Mia Dearden is the second Speedy. Mia is actually portrayed in the Smallville TV series for a short time.
Green Arrow on CW
Alright so when I first heard they were going to do a TV show of Green Arrow I thought alright cool hope it's good. With the Green Arrow in Smallville it was depicted fairly accurate in the origins. In this Arrow show it really isn't any good with the background story. They veered way to off base, now I see why they didn't call it Green Arrow. I understand that they wanted to do something different then tell the same story than what they did in Smallville. It just reeked of inaccuracies that it makes you not want to watch anymore, especially if you like the original story. The uniform (plus Bow) in Arrow is better than in Smallville though. It is a good show that can stand alone, it looks like they are going to really play on that drama and suspense type stuff like all these shows do. More opinions and polls on my Green Arrow: Smallville vs Arrow lens.

Arrow's Character Digg
A lot of people have been searching Digg. Asking who he is. Since I haven't kept up with the show after the premier I looked it up. This character is what I've derived from what the character does, is basically a alfred/robin/damsel in distress. He is just a character to play off of, interact with Oliver. A essential character for a tv series I suppose. He is not a character from the comics I don't believe, never found anything to say otherwise. If you think otherwise or have your own opinions on this character let me know in the comments.

What if Green Arrow wasn't green at all?
What if he was blue, teal, red, orange, purple, black, pink, white, brown, or any other color you could think of. His sidekick is red so thats out (kinda), but I think he might have done pretty well if he wasn't green. Do you think he would have been more popular if they didn't choose to pick green or indifferent? If he did have a different color he would have to change his name since he can't use "Green" in his name if he's not, right. So maybe something like Blue Arrow or Purple Arrow, What would you change his name to be after changing the color? Let me know in the comments, especially if you come up with a more imaginative one than I came up with.
