First Canary for the longest time had to do more with batman more than arrow
Second the vast majority of the characters are more connected to batman like Huntress, deadshot, slade, firefly. the royal flush gang, bronze tiger, brutale, Dollmaker, Ra's.
the show part is fine but when they use someone elses characters it shows they dont think hes own characters are interesting to carry the sho themselves
Well if it bothers you that much....you have the choice not to watch it right?
I enjoy watching any comic book character come to life on movie or tv....I could care less if it makes sense. Arrow has been solid entertainment for me so far....that's all that matters.
