View full history
Simon Lacroix, the man who became Komodo, was once the protege of Richard Queen, the father of Oliver Queen. Lacroix was part of Queen's expedition to find a totemic arrow that was said to bring its owner true enlightenment. Wanting enlightenment for himself, Simon betrayed Richard and murdered him. He ultimately did not find the arrow, but continued his quest by establishing Stellmoor International as a front, and adopting the identity of the masked archer Komodo.
After Stellmoor bought out Queen Industries, Lacroix's first act as Komodo was to murder the CEO of Queen Industries and destroy Q-Core, framing Oliver Queen for the former crime. Aware of Ollie's double life as Green Arrow, Komodo tricked Ollie into believing his assistants Jax and Naomi were killed when Q-Core exploded; Komodo had actually taken them hostage, but killed Jax when he refused to talk.
Komodo then clashed with Green Arrow a second time, with assistance from his daughter Emiko. Combined, they hit Oliver seven times, although he still managed to escape.
In their most recent battle, Komodo used Naomi as bait, leading Green Arrow to the Queen family mausoleum. This time, Ollie emerged the victor, literally stabbing Komodo's left eye out with an arrow.
Komodo was created by Green Arrow writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino.
