Mia Smoak, also known as "Blackstar", is a criminal and underground cage fighter who resides in Star City in the future. She is the daughter of Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak and the younger paternal half-sister of William Clayton.

Biography

Early life

In February 2019, Dr. Schwartz called Felicity Smoak to tell her that the results of her blood test revealed that she's pregnant with Mia.[1]

Potential future

At some point, presumably in late 2019, Mia was born to Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak.[1] She was named after her grandmother, Moira Queen.[2]

At some point, by 2040, Mia got involved in underground cage fighting as a "stress release".[3]

Also at some point, she came into contact with her mother and sold her technology to trigger bombs—although it’s unknown if this is actually true or just a cover so as not to reveal her true identity. When she first reveals this information to William Clayton, Dinah Drake and Zoe Ramirez, she claimed that she had no knowledge of Felicity's plan, but it’s later revealed that she does.[3]

One night, Mia watched Emerald Archer: The Hood and the Rise of Vigilantism, a documentary about Oliver Queen that had been banned sometime before 2040. When Connor Hawke asked how she got a copy of it, she said she stole it. She then led Connor to the old Arrowcave.[4] After arriving at the Arrowcave, they were interrupted by Roy Harper, Dinah, William, and Zoe. They tied them all up, while Mia interrogated the latter two as to why they were there, before she sought codes to activate the Archer program.

They were joined by Connor, who was supposed to be watching the others. Dinah and Roy entered the room, causing a fight. Mia got the upper hand on Dinah and held a knife to her throat. William then pulled a gun on her, threatening to shoot, before Mia revealed her identity as Oliver and Felicity’s daughter and his half-sister.[1]

    • Expert knife-wielder: Mia is an expert at using a knife in combat as seen in her fight with Dinah.
  • Keen intellect: Mia was able to find the abandoned Arrowcave from hints in the documentary, Emerald Archer: The Hood and the Rise of Vigilantism. Felicity Smoak raised her to be an intelligent person, so smart that she could quickly solve a Rubik's Cube to demonstrate a cube within a cube within a cube, whereas her genius half-brother could only do two cubes.
