Appearing in "Green Arrow: The Origin of Green Arrow"
Synopsis for "Green Arrow: The Origin of Green Arrow"
A gunman who was formerly employed by John Deleon, to whom Oliver Queen lost his fortune, holds a woman hostage at gunpoint aboard the deck of a ship. Green Arrow opposes him, seeking the briefcase full of evidence of Deleon’s wrongdoings the gunman carries, but the terrorist insists on Green Arrow leaping overboard in return for his releasing the woman. Green Arrow remembers his origin story, how Oliver Queen once fell off another ship, swam to Starfish Island, learned the use of a makeshift bow, and used it to help defeat a band of pirates who landed on his isle. Green Arrow then manages to take out the gunman, though the briefcase is lost in the sea. He decides that the papers within it don’t have much meaning to him anymore.
