A common thief tries to steal from Ray Palmer. A foolish mistake.
Appearing in "Mightier Than the Sling!"
Synopsis for "Mightier Than the Sling!"
Green Arrow has figured out the duplicity and sent off a shot that broke the arrowhead off a wall and stunned Slingshot with the broken remainder of the arrow. His act of remorse was a fake-out for Mrs. Hollinger's benefit. But Slingshot has now revived, and holds the gagged Black Canary and Mrs. Hollinger hostage, intent on a death-duel showdown with Green Arrow. Instead of sending another arrow at Slingshot, GA whirls and fires a shaft that tears loose Black Canary's gag. She uses her canary cry to disable Slingshot. As Mrs. Hollinger is being taken away by the police, Green Arrow asks for her forgiveness. She replies that she cannot, since her hate of Green Arrow is all that keeps her alive.
