"Genesis is much bigger than just one person."
—Milo Armitage to Damien Darhk[src]

Milo Armitage (died May 2016) was a businessman and secretly, a high-ranking member of H.I.V.E., with considerable authority over Operation Genesis.  


Early actions[]

Milo hired a man to free Ben Turner from Iron Heights by smuggling his claws inside his body. After Turner's escape, Armitage met with him and promised him $10 million to break into Malcolm Merlyn's vacant mansion and steal his prototype Markov Device. Turner did so, despite interference from The Arrow and Roy Harper, and met with Armitage to hand the device off to him. However, the Arrow and Roy arrived, and despite Armitage's best efforts, they destroyed the device and Armitage was arrested.[1]

However, Armitage somehow got out from prison, presumably due to his connections.

Armitage later sent some men to attempt to buy top-secret files of A.R.G.U.S. agents off of Mark Shaw in Corto Maltese but the transaction was interrupted by Oliver and John Diggle.[2]

Operation Genesis[]


The H.I.V.E..

One year later, Armitage was revealed to be a high-ranking member of H.I.V.E., considered to be Damien Darhk's partners. Armitage sarcastically congratulated Darhk on becoming "famous" when Oliver outed Darhk as the mastermind behind H.I.V.E. and the Ghosts. Armitage and the other partners accompanied Damien when he nearly executed John Diggle, Felicity Smoak, and Thea Queen, but when Malcolm Merlyn and Laurel Lance interrupted, they fled. Later, Damien showed Armitage and the partners his progress with their operation, "Genesis".[3]

Armitage and the rest of the H.I.V.E. board of leadership later held a meeting, discussing Ruvé Adams' run for mayor of Star City, as well as Quentin Lance's betrayal.[4]

When Damien was imprisoned, Merlyn visited him, informing him that Armitage and the other H.I.V.E. members had decided to move ahead with Genesis without him.[5]


Armitage and Phaedra Nixon were present at H.I.V.E. headquarters when Damien returned, flanked by Merlyn, Andy Diggle, and Michael Amar, as he'd been freed from prison by the three. Nixon and Armitage were worried that Damien would seek vengeance for allowing him to rot in prison. However, Darhk seemed very calm, lulling the two into a false sense of security. Once Darhk learned that Genesis had continued without a hitch even during his imprisonment, he threatened the two, telling them he no longer needed them. Armitage promptly attempted to shoot Darhk, who used his telekinesis to deflect the bullet and redirect it into Armitage's forehead, killing him instantly. His body was dumped in an alley outside Ellendale, where it was eventually found by the SCPD.[6]
