#1 – OLIVER QUEEN – THE GREEN ARROW
The Oliver Queen of the comics, has always been presented as a spoiled, thrill-seeking playboy, until the moment he was left stranded on a deserted island for several years. There, he trained to become a master archer in order to survive. After his return home, he used his skills to become the costumed vigilante called Green Arrow to dispense justice.
In the series, in 2012, Oliver returned to Starling City after being stranded on a remote island for five years, much to the surprise of everyone as he was assumed dead alongside his father. On the island, Oliver learned to fend for himself and discovered the dark secrets his father kept and tried to atone for, and so upon Oliver’s return, he became a green-hooded vigilante archer known by the Starling City populace as The Hood.
My name is Oliver Queen. For five years, I was stranded on an island with only one goal: survive. Now I will fulfill my father’s dying wish – to use the list of names he left me and bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become something else.“—Oliver Queen (Season 1 intro)
