From Blue Beetle to Green Arrow, the hits just keep on comin'!
I always had high hopes that Green Arrow's quiver was full of bent arrows, that he was not such a straight-shooter after all. I mean the original Green Arrow's real name is Oliver Queen. It sounds like he grows rare Paphiopedilums in his penthouse. Or maybe he dons a silk robe and lounges around with a soiree of sweet young men. Whatever, it was just my imagination running away with me. Too bad, he had such promise, too. Except for the fact he's a notorious womanizer. But then some Don Juans are down low switch hitters, too.
Well he has one great thing going for him--green!
With everything going "green" these days, what better symbols do we have than DC's Green Lantern and Green Arrow? They make a very cool Green Team.
Green Arrow appears briefly at the beginning of The Rise of The Blue Beetle episode of the Batman: The Brave and The Bold animated series (see Superhero Sunday: BB-Part 2, first video). That's what gave me the idea of featuring him today. But with such charm and masculine bravado I'd gladly feature him every day.
