Robert Queen is a billionaire and the vigilante known as The Arrow, formerly The Hood, and the father of the late Oliver Queen.



In 2007, during a voyage at sea with his son, Oliver, Robert was presumably shipwrecked on Lian Yu, while Oliver perished. Robert was originally believed dead until unknown circumstances lead to his return to civilization. [1]

Behind the scenes

  • This version of Robert is reminiscent of Thomas Wayne from Flashpoint, a DC comics arc in which Thomas became Batman in an alternate timeline, rather than his son Bruce. A similar version of Thomas later appeared on the Earth 2 series as the new Batman of that world.
    • It is also a reference to the New 52 story arc, since in Prime Earth, Robert Queen didn't die in a safari as his New Earth counterpart, but survived to become the first Green Arrow, a member of the Arrow Clan, leaving the title to his son after his death at the hands of Komodo.
