Just like BoP, I actually like this book, but also like BoP, I can't 100% enjoy it due to the aftertaste of what is CfJ and the Rise and Fall nonesense and the knowledge of knowing that we got this at the expense of those books. All in all, I actually do find this book to be a good read. That's just me.

So the only thing he came up with that made him deserve what's essentially a resurrection is he didn't run from his battles?

Hey, whatever it takes to get you out of bed in the morning, or you know magically back from the brink of death.

It's the Martian that killed Megan, isn't?

First of all, What? You think Galahad is the Martian? Hmmm... maybe, but why choose such a random person to impersonate?

Second, Megan isn't dead. She was never dead, just badly curb-stomped.

~Ollie sits on the rock clutching his head~

"Do you wish to know of the ones who caused you this pain? Who caused this injury upon your person."

"Well...yeah? I'd like to be clued in as to who shot me in the head with a fucking arrow. I mean, shit, I'll at least get them for copyright infringement."

~Galahad sweeps his arm out towards the woods as a group of people enter.~

"You have got to fucking kidding me."

~Dinah, Clark, Hal, and Bruce walk into the clearing~

"SURPRISE!"

"I'm just gonna skip the anger and profanity and juts get right down to it. Just explain it, it's gonna be real stupid so let's just get it over with."

"Okay so, Hal figured that, ya know, you've done so much for the JLA that you deserve a little recognition. So we figured that we'd do sort of a "This is Your Life thing"

"So you shot me with a fucking arrow? Then had Prince Valient give me a discount baptism? Jesus Christ, why would you listen to an idea from Hal? The guy who has fucked an underage alien, become a super monster who destroyed teh fucking universe and who keeps trying out for the cast of The Real World? Jesus Christ."

"In my defense I think I could really bring a flair to the show"

"Shut up Hal. Look if you're gonna bitch every time we shoot you in the head with an arrow, we're gonna be here for a long time. So how did you enjoy your past?"

"It was magical. I'm sure glad you let me dwell on all my failures in life. OH and my dad cheating on my mom. That was a good memory, thanks guys. I'm so glad I got to ruminate on their deaths like that."

"Ollie, Bruce keeps us all filled up on our parent's issues quota, let's not add anymore."

"You people wonder why I make lists of your weaknesses."

"Also, you seem pretty ungrateful."

"Oh sorry. Thanks for shooting me in the head with a fucking arrow and dredging up horrible memories. I'll be sure to make it up to you guys by shooting you in the face and telling you your parents never loved you. Assholes."

Doesn't Ollie know the Shining Knight? It'd be awesome if he showed up and recognized this guy as actually being Galahad.

well, I actually meant the first Shining Knight. As a knight of Camelot, I figured he'd recognize other knights of Camelot.

Hey, remember when Green Arrow was a gritty, down to earth title without any mystical crap?

Those were good days.

Yeah, I don't mean Black Canary, since that's a pretty low-key power. She mostly relies on her fighting and saves the cry for special occasions. The only time Hal comes into the picture is during team-ups, which isn't a frequent thing.

I just prefer Ollie to be involved in more street-level stuff. When it gets all mystical and stuff, it kind of gets away from the grounded character he feels like he's supposed to be, you know? Save the bigger stuff for when he's teaming with Hal or the League.

he just doesn't feel all that grounded to me. He uses a killing weapon daily without killing and does this intentionally. He has all kinds of trick arrows and pulls of shots that defy the laws of physics. He's only street level because some writers say he should be.

With each issue of this book, I become more and more convinced that Rise of Arsenal was entirely editorially mandated.

Isn't this Ollie's second resurrection? If he gets another one, does he get a Cosmic Savior prize or something?

I used to love Ollie so much. Now...not so sure.
