This Just Happened: An Archer and a Canary

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t had a chance to read the new GREEN ARROW: REBIRTH #1 yet and don’t want to know what happens, stop reading this post now (spoilers ahead!)

In the all-new GREEN ARROW: REBIRTH #1 one-shot, Oliver Queen is kept busy by his dual life, first as a playboy socialite and CEO of Queen Industries, and then as a warrior on the streets, protecting those who need it.

When a homeless boy is found crying for his mom and being led away by a shadowy stranger, Ollie interferes. His attack is matched blow for blow, with the cloaked figure finally revealing herself as the Black Canary, who seems vaguely familiar…

The two work together to return the boy to his father, but are curious as to what happened to his mom. When they ask him, the little boy tells them: The Underground Men.

They track down the Underground Men, who have been kidnapping several homeless people off the street, only to discover that they are auctioning them on an underground market! Green Arrow and Black Canary bound into action, putting a stop to the auction, and promising to hunt these vile men down.

Then this just happened:

The Emerald Archer and Black Canary (and lets not forget Ollie’s goatee!) have returned…
