Oliver Queen and his father are lost at sea when their luxury yacht sinks. His father doesn't survive. Oliver survives on an uncharted island for five years learning to fight, but also learning about his father's corruption and unscrupulous business dealings. He returns to civilization a changed man, determined to put things right. He disguises himself with the hood of one of his mysterious island mentors, arms himself with a bow and sets about hunting down the men and women who have corrupted his city.



Arrow has quickly become my favourite superhero TV shows. It's ability to create a whole new universe whilst adding a mixture of new and old DC characters has given it the freedom to create it's own identity separate from other DC properties such as Batman and Superman. The chemistry between the cast only adds to the shows dynamics.
