To say the recently reimagined Batgirl by writers Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher and artist Babs Tarr represents an important turning point in comics would be an understatement. Between Barbara’s practical new costume, modern new villains and challenges more reflective of those facing young adults today, it’s struck a chord with fans and has gotten more than a few new readers into their local comic book store.
Just in time for Arrow's spectacular return tonight, The CW's highlighting some of this season's key players with some cool comic-to-screen images. Ra's al Ghul, Arsenal, Black Canary, the Atom... This season's storyline draws from quite a few corners of the DC Comics Universe, and man, do the actors look the part. What do you think?
While it's uncertain if we'll be seeing Ray Palmer suited up as the Atom on Arrow this season, you can get your first glimpse of Katie Cassidy's Black Canary in action in tonight's all new episode, "Left Behind."
Arrow fans who are familiar with the DC Comics upon which the show is based have known where this season is taking the character of Dinah "Laurel" Lance. After the tragic death of her sister, Sara Lance, the show's initial Canary, Laurel's been training under boxer Ted Grant, who's taught her to channel her anger. Driven by her need for justice, she's on a path that will one day soon find her donning her sister's trademark leather jacket and stepping into her ultimate role as Black Canary--one of DC Comics' most iconic female heroes.
