"Vigilantes are not the law. If they’re wearing a mask, they get a bullet."
—Stein to his SWAT team[src]

Captain Stein is the former police captain of the Star City Police Department. He has little tolerance for vigilantes and will not hesitate to attack them.

Due to Stein's rogue actions that resulted in the death of Frank Bertinelli (albeit unintentionally), he was fired from his department by the police board.




Season 2

Behind the Scenes

  • In the Dc comics, Harry Stein is a New York City police inspector whom leads a task force formed to apprehend Vigilante. He later joined Checkmate, a governamental organization. Although we cannot be completely sure this Stein is the Arrowverse version of Harry Stein, they share some interesting similarities; both were medium-ranking members of police forces, desdained vigilantes and were eventually fired because of their interactions with them.
