So, Green Arrow, a supposedly heroic character, commits an act of premeditated murder. And he’s sent to Belle Reve, right?
Oan Sciencell? Takron-Galtos? Phantom Zone?
Well, he’s at least kicked out of the Justice League, right?
Not even that, huh?
So the DC universe is a place where even the good guys can get away with cold-blooded murder in the name of “edginess?”
Or an embarrassingly adolescent approach to “mature” story-telling.

Oh, man, I wonder how Ollie will save that kid? Given tha-
Oh, he is just going to fire an arrow at him.
I guess putting him out of his misery before he’s smashed into pieces on the ground is the kindest thing.
Green Arrow is preoccupied with how many balls other men have.
Green Arrow harbors a secret fantasy of becoming a Greta Garbo impersonator.

Four issues later, Batman is still thinking about that time he kissed Black Canary. Instead of paying attention to the JLA’s monitors.
Of course, Green Arrow being Green Arrow, he’s just got to be an asshole about it…
And then, this;
Let’s review that kiss, shall we:
That’s how Black Canary kisses her brother, huh? And I thought the Superman/Supergirl relationship was as creepily incestuous as the DCU got…
Given that this is Batman we’re talking about, I vote for option two.

Hey, who’s the poster boy for condescending liberals? Why, Ollie Queen of course!
“Hey, what about the presumption of innocence?”
“That’s the way The Man does things, my noble savage friend.”

“I just killed three men with my bare hands, Mr. Arrow, sir…one more life sentence won’t make much difference to me.”
“That’s right! I’m going to college, to major in hotel and restaurant management, and then I’m coming back here to open a casino, and take advantage of your people’s vice for profit! And I’ll fund my education by selling pot and mushrooms to hippies who think that a weekend of drug use puts them in touch with thousands of years of my culture!”
“That’s the spirit, kid!”
