Default Re: Green Arrow

I'm sorry - but what, in the hell, was that?!
I mean, the character is taking a big enough butchering in the Nu52 as it is (yet I keep coming back month after month in the hope that the next writer - what're we on, the third now? - will correct the incalculable mistakes thrust upon our favourite archer in a misguided effort to modernise and Smallville-ise him). But Nocenti really does seem to just be making up whatever personality for Ollie she wants. There is absolutely nothing in him (in all three "hims" we've seen since the relaunch) that suggests he learned anything about himself, about wealth, about the haves and have nots, during his time on the island (if any of his origin even remains). He has no goal, no viewpoint, no anything
