Who is Oliver Queen?

My name is Oliver Queen, and I am the superhero vigilante, Green Arrow!

I am a billionaire that fights crime using archery, martial arts and technology. I manage the crime throughout my home, Star City alongside Team Arrow, which is composed of: Connor Hawke, Speedy (Red Arrow) and my wife, Black Canary.

As a kid, the outlaw, Robin Hood, became one of my favorite stories.  As I was growing up, due to this fascination, I took a special interest in archery. My parents were happy for me and constantly took me on hunting trips so I could improve. Life was perfect until disaster struck when my parents were mauled by lions while we were on one of these safaris.

It was my fault…
My hesitation to kill the heartless creatures in front of me caused my parents to get killed, and I vowed to never let something so foolish happen again. I learned that whenever a shot present itself, I should take it to protect those that I loved and although it was sad, it was probably the most valuable lesson that life could have taught me.

After my parents died, I started living with my uncle until I inherited my family’s massive fortune. I decided to use this newfound money and buy myself a boat! Then it happened…

I fell off my boat in the middle of the ocean and ended up on a remote island called Starfish Island. The only reason I even made it was because the replica Robin Hood bow I was grasping onto somehow kept me afloat until I washed ashore after the accident.

During my time on the island without food and shelter I developed my skills as a hunter, and gained mastery over my bow. I worked hard to learn self-reliance and maturity, becoming the vigilante that the Star City Police Department knows all too well. I grew confident enough to bust the massive drug operation taking place on the island, and eventually signaled a nearby boat which brought me back to civilization. 

On the island, I realized that I had found my destiny!
I would use my resources, archery abilities and fighting skills to become a crime fighter.

I would stand up for the people who had not learned to protect themselves!

Who is Hal Jordan?

My name is Hal Jordan, and I am the Green Lantern of Sector 2814.

I am to be the most well-known Green Lantern and the first human ever inducted to the intergalactic peacekeeping force known as the Green Lantern Corps.

After my father died in a plane crash, I swore to follow in his footsteps and learn how to fly, no matter how dangerous it might be! I proved my worried family wrong, faced my fears, and became one of the best pilots that the United States Air Force had ever seen!

I never knew flying would lead me to finding Abin Sur, the dying Green Lantern. I was on the job in the Californian desert, when I saw something that looked like a spaceship destroyed on the barren surface below. I went down to investigate, I found a purple alien in a green suit with life threatening injuries. He took the ring off of his finger and gave it to me! He told me that he was selecting me as the next Green Lantern for Sector 2814.

 He looked into my past and saw my strong ability to overcome fear, and knew I was the one who should take up his position. Using my Ring of Willpower, I would fight off intergalactic threats and make sure this part of the universe’s life stayed safe.

Later, I was transported to the Green Lantern Corps headquarters, where I learned that there were 3599 other Green Lanterns coming from planets across the universe. We were empowered by mystical creatures called the Guardians who were mysterious and powerful. After receiving my training from my mentor, Sinestro, I knew that I was destined to show the world that will power was the strongest force in the galaxy.

When I became a pilot at a young age, I never imagined that I would grow up to fly around to different planets protecting its inhabitants from the great unknown. However, as time passed, I realized that the world was full of fear, anger and destruction and now using my power ring, I was there to show people that there was power in believing in yourself!
