- I hit your girlfriend, didn't I? Did I kill her? I thought it was tough killing super-people. They said you had to have a name and a suit. My name's Pete Lomax. I'm just an ordinary person.

Pete Lomax is an enemy of Green Arrow. He was a criminal living in Star City who developed exceptional talent at archery. It was suggested to him that he could go on to become a super-villain and he considered getting a costume. Despite this, he set out to prove that normal ordinary people like himself could take down super-heroes if they were smart enough. Listening in on police bands he discovered Green Arrow's location one night and shot Black Canary in the shoulder. Chasing across the rooftops, Lomax taunted that there was nothing special about them and how easy it had been for him to attack. Green Arrow finally cornered him and they had a stand-off that ended when his arrow was nonchalantly deflected and his bowstring was shot off. Lomax then fainted as he believed he was about to get shot off of a rooptop, and Arrow remarked that they don't make criminals as tough as they used to.
- This version of Pete Lomax, including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse, saving all the alternate realities, though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
