Green Arrow

Oliver Queen, formerly a rich playboy, fights crime as the Green Arrow, the world's greatest archer (first appearance: More Fun Comics No. 73, Nov 1941: "Case of the Namesake Murders"). The Green Arrow is a member of the Justice League of America along with Superman.

JLA teammate Black Canary is Queen's crime-fighting partner and girlfriend. Teen Titans member Speedy is his former sidekick. Green Lantern is a close friend.

Oliver Queen first meets the future Superman when both are teenagers. Shortly after Superboy has seen the future Green Arrow in action and learned his secret identity via a machine which allows the Boy of Steel to see and hear the past and the future, young Clark Kent (secretly Superboy) is startled to find that Queen has transferred to Smallville High School and is now his own classmate. Having seen that Green Arrow will be a master archer—but observing that young Oliver is far from proficient with a bow and arrow—Superboy sets out to help Oliver without informing him of his future as a superhero (Adv No. 258, Mar 1958: "Superboy Meets the Young Green Arrow!").
