Oliver Queen and his father are lost at sea when their luxury yacht sinks, apparently in a storm. His father dies, but Oliver survives for five years on an uncharted island and eventually returns home. But he wasn't alone on the island where he learned not only how to fight and survive but also of his father's corruption and unscrupulous business dealings. He returns to civilization a changed man, determined to put things right. He disguises himself with the hood of one of his mysterious island mentors, arms himself with a bow and sets about hunting down the men and women who have corrupted his city. Written by

The character Shado is based on the femme-fatale with the same name from DC comics. Unlike her onscreen counter part, (who was the daughter of a Chinese soldier and Oliver's archery teacher) Shado was the daughter of a prominent Yakusa (Japanese Mob) agent. She made a career fighting for them and her activities brought her into Oliver's sights after he had become Green Arrow. Shado once tended to a wounded Oliver but copulated with him during his recovery and became pregnant with his first son Robert. In the New 52, Shado was instead retconned as the former lover of Oliver's father Robert and the mother of Emiko, who is Oliver's half-sister. See more
