Lets look at the facts here. You need Anarky to be against big corporations. the best way to do it. is eventually have a big company screw him over in a job by having him caught and don't bail him out. revenge story right there but they want to give him an origin.
Both Mr Terrific and Anarky Coming to Arrow
So anti-industrialist Anarky is just some wannabe-crook now? In a series where the heroes all seem to have some connection to some big ass company... Hm? Is it just me or is it just stupid.
Other news just came in we have Mr Terrific and he is gay. That should technically not be important, as it shouldn't give or take from the character, but we mention it anyway, because we wanted to make perfectly clear he is just a token character.
Thing I don't get is why keep using Batman villains when Green Arrow has his own villains to use. Bring back Komodo, Constantine Drakon, bring in Onomatopoeia, Rainbow Archer, or the Longbow Hunters
Gonna be difficult, given that Oliver murdered him in episode 1.
Y'know, I skipped the latest season, and I've been wondering if they managed to get away from the Batman-tone at all and make Arrow more like... Green Arrow. This doesn't really answer my question, but it doesn't seem promising.
Well, Ra's Al Ghul was the seasons villain and Oliver fought him with a sword and Oliver decided to trust his nemesis over his allies, who he seemingly didn't trust at all and then expected to help him anyway, soooo no not really.
On people complaining that Arrow is taking another Batman villain...
Anarky has gone up against Green Arrow in comics before.
On the changes to the characters...
Yeah that's annoying. We only got a brief description for Anarky, and I'm hoping that the show will depict him better than this description leads me to believe, but I'm not a huge fan of what is said here.
On Mr. Terrific's being gay...
I do think it's important for Arrow to introduce a gay male character, but perhaps Mr. Terrific wasn't the best choice. The actor doesn't seem like a good representation of the character, and Mr. Terrific isn't even remotely close to gay in comics.
I'm still cautiously optimistic for next season, but the show really needs to get it's act together and embrace the comics interpretations of their characters rather than wantonly changing whatever they feel like changing.
@entropy_aegis: Wouldn't matter because, as you've clearly stated:
1.) It's not Clark Kent, so it's not really a change.
2.) Superman is a character based around social justice--it wouldn't even change his message much.
3.) As long as Superman isn't blonde, I could care less--I don't respect blonde men. =)
This completely ruined my dreams of my favorite intellectual antiheroe being featured in big media films. The niaveté those descriptors had to have to classify Anarky as a deranged freelancer amazes me, Anarky is destined for much more he has purpose and that is to create a utopian, anarchist society his views are etheral and I'm just disappointed already
What I (beside the villain thing) don't like about this Anarky, is that they turned him into adult, since one of the most unique things about this guy was, that he was a teenager.
And in the comics he and Green Arrow actually teamed at the two occasions they met.
And why are not using Hi-Tek instead of him, how is at least a Green Arrow Character.
