I like green arrow, I know a lot people don't like green arrow namely my best friends Ziggy and Mikey (and also Babs). I would like to know the reason why people don't like him. And also if you like him tell me why you like him

I haven't read much of him in the comics, but I thought he was great in Justice League Ulimited

Ilike everything about him, except the way he treats Canary.

Usually, he's a fun character and I've liked him, but lately he's been a bit of a jerk, instigating arguments in the Justice League and talking trash about women.  It's the latter part that Babs doesn't like about him.  
 
It has a lot to do with how a writer handles him.

I really hate the way he looks.

#16 Posted by Nepth (131 posts) - - Show Bio

I only like how he has the whole Robin Hood look going on. Other then that, he's a major ass. I have a friend whose obsessed with him though.

Before yes, now no. Just the same as Hal Jordan. Simple as that.

Eh he's okay. Roy's better though in my opinion.

#21 Posted by RaptorFratBoy (550 posts) - - Show Bio

Ollie's awesome! I first discovered the character thanks to Kevin Smith's "Quiver", and I've been hooked ever since. His voice and demeanor always crack me up, and he's not afraid to handle things with some necessary violence. Green Arrow was also a favorite on the "Justice League" cartoons...good stuff!

@RaptorFratBoy: That's how I first discovered him too

Dennis O'neil and Mike Grell should be the only people allowed to write Green Arrow

I thought Green Arrow was pretty cool in Green Arrow: Sounds of Violence.

year one is okay i guess, but it's not even close to the best of Arrows stuff.

I'm a fan. I like characters who aren't as friendly and morally perfect as Superman, Captain America, Wonder Woman and Spider-Man all the time. People hate him because he's a jerk, but that's exactly why I like the character. It's the same deal with Pym.

He's got a cool look and attitude.

I love Green Arrow and couldn't be more excited about JT. Krul's run on the relaunched title, Johns is story supervisor and he is already comparing it to Mike Grell's run
 
 
oh and just because its probably the best Green Arrow image ever:

I am a GA fan because Ollie is a guy who wants to find real answers to social problems, and not just address them as needed. In many ways I see him as the humanizing factor in the JLA. Ollie is a great hero and human being. He is strong and self-sufficient, but not self-centered, with a sense of true social justice. He is one of the toughest and bravest heroes, willing to put himself in harm’s way to help his partners (he let Deathstroke beat the crap out of him to give others time to take him down in Identity Crisis, sacrificed himself for Dinah and the JLA during Final crisis, and temporarily overcame the influence of the black ring to help save Dinah and his kids in Blackest night). Ollie is never given the credit he deserves, but he also doesn't really care. He has learned from the mistakes of his youth and is a much better man and father today than he was a few years ago. He's a very human and yet still idealized figure, one that we can look up to he stands for a swath of values across the entire spectrum. As for his undesirable qualities, i.e. the cheating, and lying, that just goes to show one thing. That he is a human being that makes mistakes. Of course we could fault him for that, but all-in-all I don’t think that it is fair for him to be criticized for making human mistakes, being as that is what he is and all. Despite him always being made out to be this bad guy, he is always willing to help someone in need. He understands that true world and the ideal world are not the same things and that some concessions must be made, much to the chagrin of those who do not want to acknowledge that fact. Because he can make the decisions other cannot, he is thought of as a bad guy, as opposed to a great leader, which is what he really is.

Didn't know.  I gues I should of assumed since Dinah is in gotham and Ollie's in Star City
#47 Posted by Zniperking (281 posts) - - Show Bio
@N7_Normandy: Not only that it's also because he killed Prometheus for what he did to Roy Harper,  Lian Harper, and the destruction of star city

@Comiclove5: I totally have to second that. How can you not love someone who used to say "Fat Cat's" on a regular basis.
#49 Posted by thechessclub (497 posts) - - Show Bio

Some of the better GA stories..Green Arrow: Quiver and Green Arrow: The Archers Quest. In my opinion Sounds of Violence was too over the top.

@Zniperking:  
1) He's a baseline, a normal, a hu-man. 
2) Arrows are lame weapons, and it doesn't make sense they'd be fast enough to hurt most of his enemies.  He would be better if he used super-guns, and it would make a lot more sense.
3) He's a pinko, blech. 
4) I hate his campy Robin Hood outfit.
