Yea DC doesn't have a lot on the go these days but Green Arrow has been great. What did you think of the ending to the last issue?

I wasn't surprised, Robert had to die sooner than later, DC can't keep parents alive. What about you?

Ha yea I knew he wasn't going to last but I didn't think it would be that quick, I thought he might fake it again. Do you think he would have still sacrificed himself if Ollie had forgiven him?

@jonny_anonymous: I wish Robert stayed alive because it would have been interesting to see him in the DCnU. Since Ollie isn't capable of running Queen Industries, it could have been cool to see Robert running it and doing a little vigilante work along side of Ollie. As for Robert sacrificing himself...yeah, I do think so. But he would have done so for a different reason.

Yea agreed, I would have really liked to have seen more of Robert, maybe we will get to see some flashback stories about what he was up to during his time away

@jonny_anonymous: Maybe it wasn't Robert who died...maybe it was Magnus again and Robert is just waiting with an arrow to shoot as a back up!! *wishful thinking* Robert reminded me so much of Pre-52 Ollie, and I think they did that on purpose, so I favored him a lot...

Yea they did make him like pre-New 52 on purpose, Lemire said that in a few interviews. Magus and all the clans really have me interested, I hope we get to see more of their backgrounds.

Ah okay, I didn't see those interviews. I agree, I hope we see more of the other clans. I actually think the entire idea is completely genius. I have a feeling that these clans are going to be a huge main stay in the Green Arrow world. Kind of a like a foothold in his mythology now. Though, I will say, the fact "The Outsiders" is going to be a Green Arrow thing instead of a Batman thing, is strange to me, but I don't completely object to it. What do you think of that?

Yea I love the idea of all these clans based around a different totam and I hope the idea really does get fleshed out. I'm totally fine with the Outsiders being an Arrow thing now, Batman has his the whole Batfam thing going on and to much street level stuff revolves around Batman as it is so it's good to spread it around a bit. Green Arrow reminds me a lot of Immortal Iron Fist in a way.

I was going to say that. It's definitely similar. There are the Immortal Weapons in Marvel and now there's going to be the Totems' in DC. It's just a really cool concept to have. But here is where I criticize....DC is trying way too hard to be similar to Marvel. I said it. I'm sorry. I had too!

@jonny_anonymous: I liked how they were different. Marvel had this government agency feel to it ala SHIELD. Everything in Marvel was connected to it. It's Marvels center. Then you had DC who didn't have a government agency to rely on, their superheroes were a lot more independent and free to do as they please. Sure, there was Checkmate, but I never felt that to be close. Now DC has ARGUS, which is SHIELD of America, and the spy agency that Kane runs and Dick will be joining that is SHIELD International so it's not warming to me. But I digress from the topic of Green Arrow....the totems, thats a change I'm will to accept with ease.

Every comic book universe ever has a intelligence service, I mean Checkmate was pretty well integrated into the DCU at large pre-Flashpoint so I don't really see the problem here. Also ARGUS isn't really anything like SHIELD, ARGUS only deals with superbeings and that's it, they don't have actual spies or anything and they only really appear in the Justice League books. Also Spyral was a Morrison creation and it's not really like SHIELD either, if anything it's more like the W.C.A

@jonny_anonymous: What I've heard is that Lemire wants to introduce Merlyn to the new DC Universe, but he didn't want to make him too similar to Komodo.

@the_tree: I hope the Longbow Hunters become a regular occurrence after this, similar to the Sinister Six for Spider-Man. Dart interests me because this one looks female so I wonder if it's a new character or one that's been renamed.

Agreed about Dragon or at least I hope he's trying to pull a "Red Hood" so if you can't beat crime you control it. Btw is Dragon a member of the Fist Clan? I thought that was mentioned but now I can't find where.

If he does bring them in, I don't think it will be any time soon since this is all about doing new stuff but I'd be ok with him bringing Arsenal in if it would get him away from Lobdel.

Do you think they will add any more characters from the show? I love Felicity but I wouldn't want her in the book at the expense of Fyff and co. Also I want to know more about comic Dig.

@the_tree: I know it's to much to ask but I kinda hope this new Dart is somehow Mia Dearden. I also kind wish Olly had stayed with the Outsiders, they would make an awesome side team, similar to Aquaman's Others.

Hm I must have just presumed he was since he was a martial artist.

We will likely seen Roy but I don't think we'll see Canary any time soon because if he had plans for her she likely would have been mentioned at Green Arrows funeral in Future Ends.

I really like Felicity, I think she's one of the best things about the show but I also don't want to see Naomi and Fyff get replaced since I like both of them to. Do you not think Merlyn would be to similar to Komodo though?

Is there any other street level guys you think would suit being an Arrow villain?

@the_tree: Yea hopefully. I really like the concept behind them and it expands the Arrow mythos and makes him a bigger deal honestly.

I haven't read BoP in a long time.

I wouldn't mind if they made him more like a Kingpin or Falcone type crime boss.

Yea all those are good picks, especially Silver Monkey and Slade. Didn't Oliver and Grifter cross paths early in the New 52? Anyway I would love to see that happen again under Lemire.

@the_tree: Agreed, maybe he'll need them back for when he fights the Longbow Hunters?

I quite liked Team 7 because it was focusing a lot on the Wildstorm characters and it had Slade before he was really a bad guy.

It's just I think Komodo already fills the role of anti-Arrow and he has a closer connection to him as well.

Yea they would make a good "I hate that guy but can't help but respect him" rivalry.

Picked up this issue, its my first Green Arrow comic ever. I am a convert from the Arrow TV series, I got Series 1 for my birthday and am about two discs in so far. Anyway, love this book, beautiful art, reminiscent of a Bendis era Daredevil comic....

Wish I had picked up this title ages ago....

I've seen both seasons of Arrow so far (I prefer the second one), but part of me is thinking of dropping it in protest.
