Bad Comic Book Dates #4- Green Arrow

Green Arrow

I love Oliver Queen. He is a great character with a lot a great deal of passion. His love affair with Black Canary used to send me into swoons back in the late 1970's JLA days.

The sad thing about Ollie is this:

He can't keep it in his pants.

If Ollie gets hit on, he is done. He can never resist a pretty girl, and is she is the agressor, sooner or later he always falls. It doesn't help that he doesn't advertise the fact that he is in a relationship.

Ollie reminds me of those guys at the bar who put their wedding ring in their pocket when they see a pretty girl.

I love you Ollie, but I just can't live with you. I know that sooner or later you are going to go have sex with another girl. You are weak in the ways of the flesh and that makes me sad.

Green Arrow being promiscuous is a post-Grell addition that I still do not beleive

Yeah, it killed it for me too. I LOVED Ollie and Dinah's relationship in Justice League of America and in Green Lantern/Green Arrow. It just killed me to see him cheat on her like a dog. Since then, he has been quite the slut.

It is really too bad, because it has so altered the core of the character. To this day, when I say Green Arrow, everyone is like "oh, that guy, the man whore". It is a shame.
