To atone for his past failings and behavior, Green Arrow took up hood and bow in the name of justice.
Oliver Queen was nothing more than a spoiled socialite… until pirates attacked his extravagant party at sea. Eluding capture he launched a sneak attack but, having shirked archery lessons, was a poor shot. His arrow missed, triggering a pirate’s dead-man switch and killing dozens in the following explosion. Thrown into the ocean, Oliver washed ashore sometime later on to a deserted island, where circumstance forced him to survive with bow and arrow alone. When rescued much later, Oliver committed to making things right and became Green Arrow.
A Marksman armed with bow and a quiver of specialised arrows, Green Arrow aims to gain the upper hand in combat.
