But don't worry; he's STILL too good to sign autographs.
He's set upon and captured by a group of identically dressed goons who talk way way way too much, and, who because they don't watch the CW, are surprised that Ollie can fight.
I hate these people. I hate how they look and how they talk and how much they talk.
I hate every word Denny O'Neil has ever written or even thought and possibly heard.
Truly, goons should be seen and not heard.
OMG SHUT UP!
Add 'citizens' to the list of 1001 Ways to Defeat Green Arrow. Oh, speaking of "please shut up", note that the captions boxes from this era -- when writers like O'Neil were trying to be 'cool' and imitating Marvel -- are unbearably stupid (without conveying any necessary information):
Anyway, Bruce and Barry (who are, after all, the smart ones), go to the morgue and identify the corpse of the man who Green Arrow has been framed for killing: The Tattooed Man. They don't identify him by just looking his face (and that stupid sailing cap that you KNOW they left on his corpse) and saying, "Oh, that's Abel Tarrant, the Tattooed Man, who we see every time the JLA has to briefly take on a battle-line of recognizable but disposable villains!"
Always remember: there's regular logic...and then there's BAT-logic.
No, they DEDUCE it's the Tattooed Man because of the tattoo removal scars on his arms. Because they DETECTIVES, meng. They HAVE to be. They're the smart ones, so they have to solve this case through their detectiving. It's not like someone is just going to walk up to them and...
Jeez, Barry; buy a Crime File, why dontcha? Or just call T.M. Maple.
Oh. Well, then. THERE's a lucky break. A tip.
And from such a clearly honest and reliable source, too.
Well, that's a face only Dr. Mid-Nite could trust. So, instead of, say, calling the cops (because heroes simply don't DO that), Batman and Flash show up at an abandoned planetarium after nightfall based on an anonymous tip given by a self-confessed underworld underling in British biker drag. What could possibly go wrong...?
Leaguers may be stupid but they are always punctual.
