Ah, what can we say about “Oliver Queen” a.k.a. “Green Arrow”. He was a hero, billionaire playboy and tortured soul. Justin Hartley was perfect, I think. He’s good looking, charismatic and he has a lot of swag. I’m a sucker for a guy with swag, he may be poison, but I’ll ingest him gladly, if you know what I mean. (Big fan of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway”)
What did I like about “Oliver Queen?” He was a playboy with a ‘heart of gold.’ He loved his parents, it’s unfortunate what happened to them and it stuck with “Oliver” for a long time, but we all know how grief can affect people, so we could relate.
He was generous, reliable, sure, he was rich, but he was down to earth too, he generally cared for people. He wasn’t perfect, but who the hell is, even “Clark Kent” made some bad decisions, but that’s what made them human.
“Green Arrow” was cool. He didn’t have any special abilities, but he put his life on the line to save others. You have to appreciate that, most of us just stand on the sidelines cheering them on, but few have the courage to stand up and fight for what they believe in.
The outfit was cool. I remember during one of the comic cons, “Justin” mentioned how hot and heavy the suit really was, but he looked freaking great in it. “Oliver” put a lot of thought and effort into what he was doing, I mean his bow and arrow collection was ‘rad’, I know, that was so totally 80’s, but who cares, and he took care of himself, very important if you’re getting beat up on a regular basis.
About “Justin Hartley” himself, he’s hot ladies! He’s got a great smile and based on his tweets, it sounds like he has a great sense of humor too. Now I have another actor to watch.
I’m going to leave you with one of my favorite “Oliver Queen” scenes. You’re damn right he’s a hero! Enjoy!
