Green Arrow

Green Arrow Green Arrow is a superhero that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941. His secret identity is Oliver Queen, billionaire and former mayor of fictional Star City. Dressed like Robin Hood, Green Arrow is an extraordinary archer who invents trick arrows with various special functions to trip up foes. Throughout his first twenty-five years, Green Arrow was not a significant hero. However, he gained popularity in the 70's when he was paired with the more law-and-order-oriented hero Green Lantern in a groundbreaking, socially conscious comic book series. The character was not initially a well-known character outside of comic book fans until he appeared in Justice League Unlimited in the 2000s and season six of popular live-action series Smallville (played by Justin Hartley). David S. Goyer also attempted to get Green Arrow: Escape from Super Max into production as a film in the late 2000s.
