"I know what it's like to have heroes for parents. It sucks. Man, I used to ask my dad all the time why he even adopted me if he and my mom were never gonna be around. But you know what? When I got older, I realized... I was proud of them."
—Connor Hawke to Mia Smoak[src]

Future Connor Hawke

Connor Hawke in 2040.

By 2040, he had formed an acquaintanceship with Mia Smoak. He clearly knew her well enough to know that she had gotten her copy of Emerald Archer: The Hood and the Rise of Vigilantism by stealing it. He then went with her to the old Arrowcave, commenting that the place seemed haunted.[4] They were subsequently interrupted by William Clayton, Zoe Ramirez, Roy Harper and Dinah Drake, who they knocked out and tied up. Connor watched the latter two, who happened to recognize him, before he went to the other room. Being scolded by Mia for not watching his two, they suddenly jumped out, fighting Mia and Connor. Ultimately, Roy was able to knock Connor down, holding him at arrowpoint.[5]


Possible future abilities

"I mean, the guy is a Knightwatch agent. He eats, sleeps, and breathes tactical operations."
