Quote1 Hal used to tease me for never having a rogues gallery...but it's only because my best enemy has always been myself. Even when I take my mask off...I'm still wearing another. Quote2
Oliver Queen (New Earth)src

Green Arrow has few consistent enemies, and his more persistent foes—Merlyn, Deathstroke, Prometheus and Count Vertigo—started out fighting other heroes before taking on the Emerald Archer.


Of all the villains in his rogues gallery, Prometheus had the most impact on him and his allies. Prometheus single handedly ripped off Roy's arm and destroyed Star City, killing hundreds, including Lian Harper. Green Arrow then killed him and was consequently sent to prison and unmasked as a result. His marriage to Black Canary was ended.
