So, a lot of people have a serious issue with them not calling him Green Arrow yet. Here's my thoughts: The Name is Corny, very Silver Age-y and not natural to use/come up with in a modern time Newspapers don't give out cute nicknames to killers, if you've noticed The show is trying its best to be realistic They should probably have a realistic way of coming up with the name, right? The show should be on for a while, so it's not really a rush, is it? Right now, Oliver isn't a superhero - he isn't trying to represent something, have an image, or anything like that For the story they're telling, which is really about how Green Arrow comes to be, having this period where he doesn't quite know his destiny, makes it better With a story like this, when the name finally comes out of the story, instead of a rushed 'make it like the comics' one liner, it means something, it represents something, even if you've never read the comics, it means something important in this story.
