Linda Reed was the twin sister of Hollywood starlet Ramona Reed.

Linda Reed was an archery champion in her home state Minnesota and was used in a publicity stunt by Paragon Films boss Jack Swain. Swain wanted Green Arrow in his movies, and after he declined, Swain decided to posit star Ramona Reed as a better archer. With some practical effects, Linda acted as a dead ringer for her sister.

This stunt attracted the attention of gangster Big Bill Larson, who knew the girls' father was imprisoned in Minnesota for embezzlement and wanted to use the archery skills for burglaries. Linda agreed, begrudgedly, though Ramona didn't know.

Green Arrow quickly found out Ramona knew nothing about archery and lacked an archer's trademark finger bruises, and uncovered the secret after a bit of detective work. The sister switch was uncovered, and because the only burglary Linda was involved in failed, she wasn't linked to the crime. She was offered a contract of her own, but declined.


  • This version of Girl Archer, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
