Here’s a little fact for you all- this is a prologue - made especially as a little taster treat before we hit with issue 1. These pages won’t actually be in issue 1 - so here they are in all their glory .
The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS.
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored
I’m not big on Anaconda but Jesus do you think the reason it brings these people out of the woodwork is because it features an overtly sexual black woman or what

“”We wanted to do something that we hadn’t done before,” Kreisberg said. “With Malcolm, it was a very specific villain who had a very specific agenda. That was designed where they didn’t even necessarily know they were up against each other until the very end. In Season 2, Slade’s plan was all about revenge. It was personal. It was something he blamed Oliver for. “For Season 3, we wanted a new challenge for Oliver. [Ra’s] really speaks to the emotional theme of the season, which is, ‘Can I be both the Arrow and Oliver Queen at the same time?’ The villain says to Oliver, ‘The reason you’re not able to fully be the Arrow and do the things you should be doing is because you’re still holding on to Oliver Queen. I’ve left my identity behind to full commit to my cause. If you did that, you could rise as high as I am.’ Knowing that was emotionally what we wanted to do, that was how we landed on [Ra’s].””
Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, on why Ra’s al Ghul of all people is going to be the season three Big Bad of the show.
Arrow as a show kind of baffles me. I mean, this is a show that stars versions of a fairly large section of the Batman cast, from Helena Bertinelli’s Huntress to Deadshot to even Harley Friggin’ Quinn of all people… yet thus far Batman apparently does not yet exist in the show’s universe.
A universe where Harley Quinn, and thus logically the Joker must exist, but no Batman. Weird.
you know they’re not allowed to use batman right
so what I’m getting from this is that green arrow has literally no interesting nemeses, since afaik slade wilson was more of a robin/nightwing and/or Teen Titans villain
For the most part superheroes needing to have their “own” villains is largely a construct of licensing kerfuffles in other media tbh
Like, Iron Man and Hulk, for two, don’t have any good designated villains. It’s telling that every character who has been a villain in an Iron Man movie except Whiplash (who sucks) is dead in the comics, and one of them died like two pages after they appeared and was never a villain? My favorite Iron Man story of the past several years had him fighting the Green Goblin. Hulk mostly just fights other superheroes.
I think the Al Ghuls are the key villains in my Wonder Woman pitch. Wonder Woman also has shit for villains. Fucking Cheetah? “Catwoman but slightly less of a sex thing, and moderately more evil.” Great arch-nemesis, Diana.
