Connor Hawke and Arrow Family in New 52?

#1 Posted by tahmidk (283 posts) - - Show Bio

Any of you guys feel that everything and anything for the Arrow family has been ruined? Pretty much all of Ollie's previous history has been erased and Black Canary's a mess. Roy never had Lian and his story only starts after he beats his heroin addiction. Connor Hawke(the best ever) never existed along with mia and arrowette. Does DC even care about Green Arrow? if they did then why did they completely destroy him and his history. Oh and now there are talks at DC to make Baz and Ollie have the relationship that he used to have with Hal.... that means ollie's and hal's relationship never happened....

Yeah, New 52 GA blows. Hopefully Lemire makes up for it.

What the hell am I saying, it's Jeff Lemire!

I mean I get the reboot its cool and all but what they have done to some of the characters, I just don't know. Arrow has to be one of the worst ones, its like he's not even the same person...

@SmashBrawler: i absolutely love Lemire, but i doubt DC is going to let him bring back all the Green Arrow history and characters like Mia and Connor

@tahmidk: I know Lemire probably won't be able to bring back characters, what I meant is that he might give Ollie his personality back, since New 52 Green Arrow is a completely shallow character. It wouldn't fix everything, but it would be a beginning. And if Lemire has a successful run, DC may allow him to do some worldbuilding.

@tahmidk: I feel you. Ollie doesn't look (which I suppose is a small thing, but that goatee was iconic!), act, or give the same feel that he use to. He can't be more than a few years older than Roy now, who I might add never had a heroin addiction in this new continuity. Instead he's an alcoholic. Like you said, there's no Mia now or Connor and Ollie appears to never have had a Speedy sidekick.

The Arrow family hasn't been changed or ruined. It simply no longer exists.

This, and it's a colossal shame.
