How many times did he get shot in the head? I’m pretty sure I remember a writer saying they didn’t know what to do with him so they fridged/bussed him. I like some of the stories written after Ollie came back, but the art is… It’s like they forgot who his mother was. Connor Hawke is not Ollie Junior.
There’s so many great stories you can tell with him. He’s a great foil to Ollie’s Ollieness. And how often do you see stories about mixed race kids, almost never. He’s got this great combo of characteristics that make for brilliant story hooks and no one knows what to do with him. Such a failure of imagination. Honestly all the Arrow kids are a pile of wasted potential, Lian, Sin, Mia, Roy. They’ve all been punted around for man angst and it just makes me mad.They really need a Li’l Gotham, Superman Family Adventures style comic all their own.
