Yesterday, Green Arrow & Co. used their absurd (and absurdly dangerous) car-o-pult to launch themselves through a glass window on the top floor at Professor Angel's hospital, whereupon they were IMMEDIATELY clobbered by his gargoyles (who knew that Green Arrow wouldn't be able to resist crashing head-first through the window).
|Hal Jordan, eat your heart out.|
One man's "cowardly blow" is another man's "obvious counter-tactic". I haven't enjoyed an Ollie-foiling this much since Bullseye just threw rocks at him.
Fortunately, it IS a hospital, so they can get treated right away.
|Treated... TO DEATH, MUHAHAHAHAH!|
Professor Angel forces his plastic surgeon, Dr Rankin (whose family is being held hostage), to kill off GA and Speedy. Prof. Angel, as we have noticed from previous scenes, always uses intermediaries and never gets his own hands dirty.
|"You MUST, Dr. Rankin! It's the only way Black Canary can live a full and happy life!"|
Seems a waste of the opportunity to just put them BACK in the Arrowcar's catapult and hurl them to a splatifying doom, which would be a much more fitting end. And everyone would just shake their heads and say, "Well, we all knew it would happen eventually!"
But Professor Angel is not a supervillain and doesn't go for death-traps. Dr. Rankin hesitates but
|"Ca- can't I livestream this? It would go SO VIRAL!"|
does the deed with shaking hands. Can you blame him? I'd be excited, too.
Oh, and, to answer your question...
...YES, that makes for a great desktop background. Staring at it, I can almost hear Ollie's final thought::
|"This... gives me... ... an IDEA!"|
Ollie's feeling like a dead duck and splitting out pieces of his broken luck.
|S P L E N D I D|
Green Arrow no more! Thus died Green Arrow and Speedy, now forgotten by time, never to have Underoos or Heroclix figures or even a CW series. But tomorrow we will move on with our lives....!
