Hi guys! I'm working on some story ideas of mine, and since I'm not exactly a GA aficionado, I was wondering if anyone could tell me who Green Arrow's technical "arch enemy" is? I know alternate media always uses Count Vertigo, but if I'm not mistaken the original Clock King was also a significant rival to him, and hasn't he developed an enmity with Deathstroke recently as well? I really don't know what I'm talking about with Ollie so I need your help :) Thanks!
Green Arrow's arch nemesis?
In the silver age, it was Clock King. In the bronze age, new villains were invented such as Merlyn, Slingshot, Vertigo and Stinger. Merlyn started in JLA. Slingshot was used a few times in World's Finest dollar comic. Vertigo and Stinger started at the same time. Black Canary fought Vertigo first in an issue of Worlds Finest dollar comic in her own solo feature. In the Green Arrow solo feature, Green Arrow fought new villain Stinger. In the next issue, Vertigo teamed up with Stinger to fight Black Canary and Green Arrow. Vertigo soon became a popular Green Arrow villain and was used in the first Green Arrow mini series. Deathstroke also started in the bronze age as a Teen Titans villain. Deadshot was revived in the bronze age to fight Batman.
I havne't read many Green Arrow comic but from what I've seen Deadshot isn't even listed as one of his villains. Kinda surprising since the two seem like they would be great paired up against each other.
