"The Hood is running around this city, thinking that he's saving it, and nothing can save it. You don't understand the cancer that has taken over this city."

Starling City was a city located in the United States, prior to Earth-2's destruction via antimatter.





In March 2015, the Starling City vigilante known as "the Arrow" was revealed to be Robert Queen.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • Although on Earth-1, the city was renamed in 2015 to "Star City" like in the comics, this apparently never happened on Earth-2, making it the only known version of the city in the multiverse not to be called Star City.
