flashpoint-green-arrow-industries-coverIn a world constantly at war this Oliver Queen finds a way to make a profit. Green Arrow Industries is set up to capture and weaponize super-villain technology on a massive scale. That’s good business for Oliver Queen, but not everybody is so happy with the status quo.

When Green Arrow Industries island facility is attacked by a terrorist Oliver Queen dons several of the confiscated super-villain weapons to hunt down the woman responsible. It turns out the daughter of Vixen has attacked the island only to bring attention to the evil Green Arrow Industries is causing all over the world that Queen has turned a blind eye to.

There’s quite a few problems with this issue including very inconsistent art (four different artists were used on various pages), Queen’s lack of prowess with a bow, and a level of preachiness that doesn’t come off well on the page. That said, here’s a Flashpoint character I’d like to see more of, so why is this title only a one-shot – especially when it seems to just be hitting its stride as the comic comes to a close? Hit-and-Miss.
