I really liked Green Arrow: Year One too, it's one of my favorite origin covering books. 
And he may not have a trade that covers his origin, but I love Booster Gold's origin, it's touching and hilarious.

My favorite origin is the updated origin of Bucky Barnes/ Winter Soldier. He is an orphaned kid who grew up fighting on an army base until they decide to give him special training to become Cap's partner. Serves as the deadly counterpart to the icon that is Captain America. Sacrifices himself trying to disarm a bomb and his body is recovered by the Soviets. He is brainwashed into becoming one of the worlds deadliest assassins including blowing up part of Philadelphia before Cap frees him with the cosmic cube. Now he is a man out of time with full recollection of the awful things he's done over the past 60. The Life Story Story of Bucky Barnes (Cap 620-624) covers a lot of his time through the Winter Soldier years and is a great read.
