The Arrow

This Fall, the CW launched a new series The Arrow about the DC Comic super hero, Green Arrow. The character is very similar to Batman, in that he is a rich man that gets lost in a foreign land for years while he trains to become a super hero. The difference however, is that, unlike batman, most of the villains in The Arrow also have no super powers, but are just corrupt business people.

This leads to a slight Robin Hood / Occupy Wall Street Correlation, especially with the criminals that make knock off smoke detectors and install them in slums, package and sell drugs, environmental destruction – or to a lesser extent, hired assassinations for acquisitions and stock manipulation.

If you’re free on Wednesday nights at 8 (or have a dvr or a computer) check it out! I think this has a chance to be the Smallville of today.
