ARROW (SERIAL CHARACTER)
My name is Oliver Queen. For five years I was stranded on an island with only one goal - survive. Now I will fulfil my father's dying wish - to use the list of names he left me and bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become something else? - Arrow
Oliver Queen is also known as the Arrow or Green Arrow.
In comics, Oliver Queen was an orphan billionaire playboy until one day when he was stranded on an island controlled by China White. He fell back on his love or archery from his youth and brought down her operation.
On returning to his home city, be stopped a robbery while in fancy dress as Robin Hood and gained the name Green Arrow. From then on, he used the persona to take down crime in the city he loved.
In the popular TV series Arrow, it's a slightly different story. Oliver was again stranded on an island with a list of names he father passed him before he died and was then trained to fight and shoot a bow by Slade Wilson and Shado. Oliver eventually returned to Starling City and vowed to take down all the names in his fathers book. People he had considered to have 'failed this city'.
Both the Arrow and Green Arrow have been well known to use their wealth on a massive array of 'trick' arrows to help their cause. Everything from nets and explosive arrows to zip lines and the well loved Boxing Glove arrow.
In the Batman Miniatures Game, the Arrow is a deadly Leader. Being able to move around the board rapidly and fire off a multitude of arrows each turn, the Arrow rarely misses his target.
He is backed up by his Sidekick Speedy. Speedy is also dangerous with a bow and even brings along Explosive arrows to the team. These two alone make for a great ranged threat.
For Henchmen, the archers are backed up by the Police and occasionally a SWAT member. These are great for taking Objectives and moving about the board with Flash lights making sure valuable targets can been seen. The Police can also arrest opponents to remove them from the table so the archers can focus on the larger and more threatening targets.
Team Arrow can also be expanded with some Free Agents. The Black Canary brings some nice close combat to the crew and can use her Canary Cry to stun and damage groups of Henchmen.
If you want a little more ranged attack, the Huntress comes armed with a Hand Crossbow but isn't afraid to get stuck in to combat either.
Overall, the Green Arrow crew is a good ranged force with options to adapt to any situation they may face. The range of movement also makes board control ones of their greatest strengths.
