To start Monday morning off with some sort-of comic news, they've finally announced who will be voicing the Ray in the forthcoming "Crisis on Earth X" crossover event for the various DC TV series.

This is a little bigger than some news, since the Ray will be the first gay male hero that the DCTVU (There must be an easier name for it than that) has featured;

The Ray will debut in the crossover (which will also include Arrow, Supergirl, Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow team), before getting a four episode animated series "Freedom Fighters: The Ray", and will be played by openly gay British actor Russell Tovey, best known perhaps, aside from an appearance in Doctor Who as Midshipman Alonzo Fraim in "Voyage of the Damned" (And later making a brief cameo as a potential new boyfriend for Captain Jack in "The End of Time") as George, a werewolf in the supernatural comedy-drama "Being Human" (The UK version that is).

Some promotional art was put together by Phil Jimenez, in the style of the old multiple Earth crossover covers to publicise the event, which also hints that it will take place around the wedding (or not) of Barry Allen and Iris West.

Now, understandably, there has been some eyebrows raised at the decision, in the current political climate in the US, to make the Arrowverse/Supergirl crossover be based around Earth-X; the DC Earth where the Nazi's won World War II, and where we will see several Nazi versions of established heroes, so we'll have to see how THAT is handled (Secret Empire is a low bar to clear, but here's hoping)

As a geeky aside; Earth-X debuted in 1973, when WW was less than 30 years finished, as a separate home for a number of Quality Comics characters DC had acquired, like Uncle Sam, the Human Bomb, Doll Man, the Ray and Phantom Lady. They were folded into the WWII heroes following Crisis on Infinite Earths, though more modern takes on them have surfaced a time or two in the last couple of decades.

I put out a request for stories showing the friendship between Hawkman and the Atom. After the cut is a page from HAWKMAN #5 where Green Arrow talks about the friendship between Carter Hall and Ray Palmer.

Justice League of America #224 was one of the first comics Kurt Busiek ever wrote - he was 23 at the time - and it's a great little done-in-one. The villain has a cool power, and the Justice League comes across as smart and strategic.

Plus, that cover has Red Tornado's dismembered torso.

So, in case you haven't heard, this month was Green Arrow's 75th anniversary. Given that I was conveniently just reading lots of obscure Bronze Age Green Arrow stuff and was noticed more than little negativity towards the character here at the time, I decided to make a case that there is more to the guy besides preachy rantings and being a dick to everyone. I wished to do this for a while, but real life (and admittedly, Star Trek binge-watch) got in the way and what was meant to start three weeks ago, is on getting out now. I haven't seen anybody do anything else here, so here I go anyway.

This month's sweet Green Arrow teaches us that sometimes hardships go better when you face them with someone you love. Also, how to do sexy without being shlocky. Also, Oliver's chili returns to canon! Check it!

...Where the tide ends? That's kind of like us. Divided but together. )

"When I first began writing Green Arrow, I kept Oliver out of costume as often as I could in order to emphasize the man.

He is a 25-year-old man. He doesn't quite know who he is. He's troubled. He's not sure of himself romantically. He's not sure of himself heroically. I wanted, gradually, as he struggles over this last arc especially with his sense of self, this war arc with his sense of self. I wanted Green Arrow to slowly take over Oliver Queen. It isn't until Rebirth that he finally truly lives up to the title. To me, this is an incredibly exciting moment. One where the dam breaks.
