Someone is trying to take down the current mob structure in Seattle. Today, I can tell you that that someone is Richard Dragon, who’ll declare himself as the city’s kingpin after he gets rid of the city’s top mob bosses.
While Oliver is off dealing with Komodo, The Outsiders, and plenty of island drama, Richard Dragon is taking advantage of having an Archer-less Seattle by quickly asserting himself as the city’s most evil mastermind. Imagine the surprise, then, that Oliver will face when his story returns him to Seattle in 2014 to find a full-out gang war going on!
While Richard Dragon doesn’t have any superpowers, he’s an expert at all forms of combat. The New 52 interpretation of Dragon makes his debut in GREEN ARROW #23, and he’s not at all like the Richard Dragon you think you know.
