    If you have been keeping up with the Arrow television series then you have probably been enjoying the appearances of popular DC characters like Helena Bertinelli, Firefly and now, Count Vertigo. The Count will be coming to the small screen in next week's episode and it seems he will be taking charge of Green Arrow's life in a pretty significant way.

    No Caption Provided

    Unlike his appearance in comics, the Count will take the role of drug dealer in Starling City. The character will be played by actor Seth Gabel ('Fringe') and based on the preview of the show, it looks like he'll be taking some serious control of Oliver Queen. According to the episode synopsis, Thea (Arrow's sister) will be getting mixed up with a drug called Vertigo that will be sure to lead to some trouble.

    == TEASER ==
    Thea is in trouble with the police after she gets caught using a drug called “Vertigo.” Oliver thinks the only way to keep her out of jail is to find the dealer, a man who goes by the name of “The Count” . Oliver turns to McKenna Hall (guest star Janina Gavankar), an old flame and current Vice cop, for help. Meanwhile, Laurel steps in to defend Thea, and Felicity gives Oliver some disturbing news about Moira.

    What do you think of the preview to the show? Is this something you are looking forward to? Have you been watching the show? If so, what has been your favorite appearance made by another DC character?

    @MadeinBangladesh: He's a Green Arrow villain that gives you Vertigo.

    Interesting take on his character though, making him a crazy drug dealer instead of a kinda pompous count.

    I don't like this interpretation. I mean, I don't mind the whole drug aspect, since they're trying to go for this realistic tone, but he just looks like crazy, drug dealer street trash. It would've been more interesting to see him as a sort of criminal ambassador that's visiting Star(ling) City.

    I always thought Seth Gabel looked a lot like Cillian Murphy, and funnily enough, in this promo, it seems he's doing a nice Scarecrow impression... mixed with a little Joker for good measure :P

    I always get excited when Deathstroke makes an appearance. And seeing Deadshot was cool, despite the fact they didn't give the character the respect he deserves. 
     
    In my opinion, there are some good episodes and some bad episodes. But as I understand it, different people work on each episode so I guess that'd make sense. I think that "Burned" was the worst episode and then either "Honor Thy Father", "An Innocent Man", or "Damaged" was the best episode.

    Yeah, Count Vertigo, at least used to be, one of GA's two major villians back in the day (especially late 70s, early 80s...the other being Merlin). I always thought he was a little goofy and gimmicky but I always dug his costume :). I've liked most of the series so far (even with the obligatory CW stuff thrown in) so yeah, looking forward to this episode. ;)

    Also agree with the show needs more action scenes. I assume they don't have as many because they're expensive to shoot, still...the show would be cooler with them...in my opinion anyway. Also...is it just me or does the actress who plays Thea look a lot like Sarah Michelle Gelar?

    The idea behind the count that they came up with looks cool, still, I'd like to see a Count Vertigo who is maybe this foreign dictator who maybe has some shady business in Starling City or like they did in the GA short animated film when he tried to assassinate Perdita.

    Glad theyre going to use actual Green Arrow villains and not just keep treading out Batman villains. Hopefully we'll get a Duke of Oil appearance. p.s. Count Vertigo should be Green Arrows arch enemy in the show.

    @stumpy49er: There have only been two Batman villains on the show. The other comic based villains are Green Arrow villains(Constantine Drakon, Eddie Fryers, China White, Merlyn).

    2 Batman villains (Deadshot and Firefly) plus Huntress. If Arrow isn't going to use Batman, it needs to stop using Batman characters.
