Oliver Queen always had his own unique voice unlike other archers. He has always been standing up for social justice, even in this clip

Its very Oliver, from the Mike Grell era but with a modern spin.

"Not the boy who was shipwrecked, but the man who would bring JUSTICE to those who poisoned my city."

Sticking back to his roots with a modern twist, taking references from the current comics, animated series and even a tinge of Smallville.

Sorry but Hawkeye was never fighting for the little guys or social justice.

Green Arrow was also created years before Hawkeye.

So anyone calling Arrow a Hawkeye ripoff should get a slap on the face. This is green arrow.

There are literally 0 similarities between the characters beyond both using a bow and both marrying Black Canary/Mockingbird. If someone calls GA a rip off of Hawkeye they're just dumb and don't deserve ur frustration

Thats true. Im so sad so many people online have such uninformed opinions. It makes them look really stupid.

We don't need another thread for this, especially one that's unnecessarily aggressive in pointing out something that should be common knowledge for comic readers.
