From the start, the CW Network’s Arrow has been a re-telling of the classic iteration of the Green Arrow. Oliver’s more like Batman than he is Oliver Queen, Felicity holds many parallels to Barbara Gordon, and the list goes on. This re-telling has worked well for the show, despite up and down reviews through its 5 year tenure. One characterization has been similar to their comic book parallel, but different enough to make him just a tad more like-able.
Roy Harper has always been, well… problematic. The stereotypical sidekick is quick to act without thought, hot headed, dangerous, and often gets others in the same kind of danger. While Arrow’s Arsenal shares many of those traits, they’ve watered down the negative and enhanced the positive just enough to make Roy a beloved character that is still missed from the show.
Though Roy is no longer in Arrow, he’ll always remain a member of the team. Thanks to this new One:12 Collective Action Figure – Previews Exclusive, you can make Arsenal a member of your team as well!
