"When Oliver rebooted the universe, he fixed things. Ever since the Crisis, crime in Star City disappeared overnight literally. Dig, he... he saved this city."
Rene Ramirez to John Diggle[src]

Star City, formerly known as Starling City,[1] is a city in Washington, United States. Despite being a thriving metropolis, Star City was rife with poverty, crime, and corruption. However, following the Anti-Monitor Crisis, during which Oliver Queen made the ultimate sacrifice and rebooted the universe, crime in Star City disappeared overnight.

During Anti-Monitor Crisis, after Oliver Queen died while battling the Anti-Monitor and reformed the universe, this city was formed on Earth-Prime, which contained most elements of Star City of Earth-1;[5] however, there are various differences between the two cities. The city in the post-Crisis era was devoid of any criminal activity after the Battle on Earth-Prime, save for William Clayton's kidnapping by John Byrne. The local team of vigilantes disbanded after Oliver Queen's funeral because of this fact. [1]

Before the battle, Sargon the Sorcerer attempted to rob a bank but was quickly thwarted.[5]
