    Don't know, all that's been released is that he's a drug dealer and his name isn't Werner Vertigo.

    So a guy that deals drugs called Vertigo is a re-imagining of Count Vertigo??? Um sounds fishy to me. May as well made him a new character.

    Agreed, know point in trying to please fans with comic lore and characters if they are just going to be changed in a way that defeats the purpose.

    They did, he has a different name and does different things. But he's still inspired by the comic character. He's different, that's why he's a re-imagining and not an adaptation.

    Because he wouldn't fit with the story they wanted to tell I imagine. Most people are speculating that Thea is going to be a victim of the drug. She's had a history with drugs in the show. If they used the character as is in the comics and still build up to what they want to build up to, her vice would have to be flying to foreign countries. :oldrazz:

    Not necessarily. Why would she have to go to foreign countries. All those things could easily happen in Starling City. The writers just chose not to make him Vertigo. Maybe the real Vertigo will show up in later seasons much to fan demands.

    Yeah, it just makes no sense. I also hate when they have villains appear or heroes for that matter and don't use their names? Just have a reporter or someone give the names if it's too hard for writers to figure a way for Arrow to start calling himself Green Arrow. Geesh.

    At least Batman was smart enough to tell everyone, "I'm Batman!" Think he was really going to let someone don him a name, nope. Batman knew what he wanted to be called lol.

    See, Green Lantern bombed because it had 'Green' in the title, so you can't use green anymore.

    You like the show as is, fine. But if I think it's doing something stupid, I'm gonna call it out.

    Yeah, that's the show runners, they fail to realize something based off of a comic book can be fun without being campy. Having a character called Green Arrow is just too silly, among other things.

    The show is fun. And I don't see how having characters say "Green Arrow" in the show is fun and not just a detail.
