Green Arrow is a Golden Age hero created by Mort Weisinger and originally drawn by George Papp (in More Fun Comics #73, November 1941). Green Arrow was a wealthy millionaire in real life, had a red-costumed sidekick (Speedy, later Arsenal, who shows up over on Teen Titans), drove around in a Arrowcar and hung out in the Arrowcave. He progressed to the Silver Age, and joined the Justice League (issue #4, April/May 1961) and when he lost his own comic book, the writers stripped him of his fortune, changed his costume, had him grow a beard, and he became a new "liberal" type of 70s hero. The Earth-1 (main) Green Arrow eventually "died" and was replaced in the League by his illegitimate son Connor Hawke who took on the role of Green Arrow, but Oliver was resurrected and got a new series initially written by filmed movie director Kevin Smith. The character also appeared in the last few seasons of Smallville, although Arrow and Smallville do not share a common continuity.
