The CW's Arrow is an entertaining take on the Emerald Archer. While is it not a direct adaptation - characters have been added to the mythos and others altered quite a bit - it still remembers its comic book roots and each episode gives us plenty of Easter eggs and nods to the DC Universe. One such moment was in a recent episode where the (Green) Arrow was battling Ted (Wildcat) Grant in his gym. At one point, in an attempt to keep things non-lethal, Oliver sticks an arrow into a boxing glove and shoots it at Grant. That's right, a boxing glove arrow! It looked just as cool as when I first saw one when I was a kid!
This is the second beat-down The Hulk has given Green Arrow recently (the first one was with Green Lantern in STF #919), and it will have repercussions - on tomorrow's cover, so stay tuned!
