Green Arrow has always been a favorite of mine. Pre-52 I read & collected everything I could get my hands on. I like a lot of the reboot but what it did to Ollie was just a complete mess. I had to drop that series after giving it more than a few second chances. But I am really excited to start getting Green Arrow again when Lemire takes over. I've missed reading a recognizable and/or interesting Oliver Queen and I trust Lemire will likely deliver both.

The X-Men one is really cute.

No, she's the Helena Bertinelli version.

Arrow will feature the modern-era version whose alias is Helena Bertinelli. She’s the daughter of a mafia boss who vows revenge after her family is murdered. The comics had The Huntress prowling Batman’s backyard of Gotham, but we expect Arrow to keep Bertinelli close to Oliver Queen’s Starling City.

Here’s the official character description: “Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow.” Expect The Huntress to show up around episode six.

@queenfrost_: No, actually. I don't get it. I mean, I'd love to read an all-male romance issue where the Supes & Bats finally admit their true feelings to each other but that seems unlikely to be published. So, until then there's probably going to be some women in an issue that involves romantic pairings and relationships.

I mean, maybe you'd prefer the entire issue to be the guys in the DCU talking about women over a few drinks at a bar and all the women off panel. Myself? I actually like to see the female characters I enjoy be depicted on the page.

Also LOL at DC giving a valentine's book to majority females. Because that's all women in comics care about...which man they need to fill their life.

I have no idea what point you're trying to make here? Who or what are "majority females"?

@wessaari: I actually hope it's Dick & Sonia that are featured. They're the ones dancing around the edges of possibly having a relationship and I've really enjoyed what they've done with the two of them so far.

@RazzaTazz: Keeping up the copyright or something, maybe? Not that I have any clue how that works or if they need to but it seems like they've been breaking out a lot of the not-seen-in-decades-and-decades title names for a while now.

This looks like a really fun change of pace. I always love it when they give something different a shot.

I continue to really enjoy the show so far, but that whole fake-drunk-embarrassment thin he did played a little too Nolan!Bruce Wayne which isn't really Ollie's vibe. He might not be I the mood for it now but Ollie tends to actually enjoy the wine, women, & goodtimes that comes along with being a billionaire playboy. His sister seemed like a pretty awful person. Here, come look at your own grave while I tell you how you not being dead is disappointing me. Otherwise, I really enjoy it.
