- "Wasn't our country founded on a brand of vigilantism, Mr. Donner? The revolutionaries in the Boston Tea Party were certainly choosing justice over law."
- —Altman to Adam Donner[src]
At the Starling Earthquake Relief Fund, Altman discussed the idea of vigilantism with Adam Donner, comparing The Hood and his copycats to the country's founding fathers. Laurel Lance approached them and Altman gave his apologies for the destruction of her former employer. He was suddenly called up to the lectern to give a speech. Altman attempted to inspire courage in the crowd in the aftermath of the Undertaking but was interrupted by The Hoods, who shot him dead.
Behind the scenes
- Unlike his Arrowverse counterpart, Altman in the DC comics was a corrupt mayor and vehement opposer of Green Arrow.
