In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light!
—Hal Jordan

Sony Online Entertainment Reveals The Green Arrow in DC Universe Online

Known by day as the mayor of Star City, Oliver Queen fights by night as The Green Arrow, an urban avenger fighting tirelessly for social justice, the working class and the disadvantaged.

Queen, who went from millionaire playboy to penniless political activist, became the world’s greatest archer after he was shipwrecked on a deserted island with only a bow. When he returned to his native Star City, he shed his playboy ways and focused on protecting the less fortunate. Taking advantage of his archery skills, Queen frequently invents trick arrows with various special functions, such as a glue arrow, net arrow, explosive arrow, time bomb arrow, grappling arrow, fire extinguishing arrow, flash arrow, tear gas arrow, cryonic arrow, a boxing-glove arrow and even a kryptonite arrow.

Queen is a respected member of the Justice League of America and frequently partners with Green Lantern. His Rogues Gallery includes the illusion-casting Count Vertigo, enigmatic Onomatopoeia, Merlyn, Constantine Drakon, Deathstroke and the Brick.
