Arrow Season 2.5 #9

A ghost from the Queen Family comes calling in the latest issue of Arrow Season 2.5 when Caleb Green, the son of a man laid off from Queen Consolidated years before whose fortunes quickly dropped from bad to worse, comes looking for revenge against the son of the man who ruined his life. Oh, and did I mention, he's also completely out-of-control and super-charged on Mirakuru?

The start of the new arc not only gives us the cured Roy in his new Arsenal-wear but also forces Oliver to come up with a makeshift costume on the fly (one I'll agree with Roy that we don't ever need to see again) when he finds himself under attack against a homicidal mad man in the middle of downtown Starling City.

Although both the killer and the vigilantes manage to get away from the police, the need to create another batch of Mirakuru cure sets up further issues of this arc by sending Oliver back to Lian Yu (taking Harper along for the ride). I'm curious to see what buddy bonding the two might go through, and what trouble they might get themselves into, in Ollie's old stomping grounds. Worth a look.
