I know this was probably asked a million times before but it's just to settle an argument...

Who's more talented (especially in hand to hand combat): Green Arrow or Purple Arrow?

GA

Green Arrow, he stalemate Batman in hand to hand. I don't see purple man doing the same thing.

Connor Hawke all day!

Green Arrow is considered to be the greatest archer in comics. DC & Marvel included.

Green Arrow

Green Arrow is more talented and has better arrows.

He did? Isn't Batman considered one of the best H2H in the DC universe?

@sungod88: Yeah he did in Hush Returns i think and yes Batman is one of the best H2H in the DC universe

Hawkeye all the way.

I love how no one ever backs up green arrow being a better archer than hawkeye. Unless somone can actually backup green arrow being the better archer I will pick hawkeye considering him> kree starship

@the_red_viper: There is more pages before this one where GA and Batman are fighting but this is the last one :

Which GA? Conner is better in H2H than Ollie and Clint. Clint is better at archery and H2H than Ollie.

#16 Edited by The_Red_Viper (5372 posts) - - Show Bio

@wavemotioncannon: The scan just 2 comments above shows Ollie is equal to Batman, and I doubt Clint can last 1 minute in H2H against Batman.

I like GA more, and since it's "in general" I say GA.

@the_red_viper: that scan shows him hanging with him and saying stop before Bats dropped the hammer on him. Clint stepped his H2H game way up when he took on the Ronin identity and could definitely hang with Bats and beat Ollie. Like I said Conner beats both of them in H2H.

#26 Posted by The_Red_Viper (5372 posts) - - Show Bio

@wavemotioncannon: I seriously doubt Clint can take on Batman in H2H. I didn't even think Ollie could until I saw that scan.

#27 Posted by CheeseSticks (2759 posts) - - Show Bio

@wavemotioncannon: There's like 5 pages before the one i post where Ollie and Batman are fighting equally and no he didn't said stop because Batman was going to beat him, he said stop at the same time Batman said enough. That's a stalemate.

GA can beat Clint anyday of the week in both archery and H2H.

I like Hawkeye better, but Green Arrow is clearly the superior one.

@thundergodswrath: The guy I'm arguing with is a damn stubborn one. I showed him this thread but he's still in his mind, even the GA VS Batman scan didn't convince him. I'd really appreciate if you told me why you've got your money on GA (I'm totally with you on this BTW).

I think Green Arrow is a better marksmen than Hawkeye by a bit, nothing to much. He is also more smarter, and thinks out strategy's when battling his opponents, unlike Hawkeye who is shoot first, think second. Not to mention if Green Arrow loses his bow, or rounds out of arrows, he can take stuff hand to hand. Which he excels Hawkeye in by quite a margin. Hawkeye has been trained by Captain America, and I think Mocking Bird for a small time, but Green Arrow has been trained by Batman and Wildcat for a more extended time. Meaning he has the advantage there too.

@thundergodswrath: While I agree that Green Arrow should take this one, you underestimate Purple Arrow's capabilities. He's a very good improvisor and a pretty good tactician. I don't know if he's better than Ollie, but he's not THAT bad, lol...

BTW, Ollie was also trained by Natas, the guy who trained Deathstroke (which means he's one deadly SOB).

Is this the "5" pages of fighting you were talking about? This fight is PIS and Bats wasn't going all out or he'd punish GA, he grabs him by the throat and says enough. One fight does not mean GA is on Bats level by any means, the other GA Conner Hawke would own him.

Guns are for pussies and the Punisher.

That's from Hush Returns which is one of the worst Batman stories ever,in that series GA also beat Prometheus who in turn was Hush's sidekick.It's bad writing dude and an awful lot was retconned away(Prometheus,Talia being leader of Kobra etc).Terrible example it's PIS.

EDIT: This was also before Ollies retraining,nothing about it makes sense.Batman has disabled Ollie's limbs with a mere touch,and re enabled them at his wish,he could beat both Clint and Ollie h2h in a few minutes.

It really doesn't. The scan shows Batman going H2H against GA with a bow, and ends with Batman's hand around GA's throat, Batarang ready.

@ferventking: Ok, you're right, but knocking the goddamn Batman to the ground is a pretty impressive feat by itself. Could Purple Arrow do that? I doubt it.
