Nicholas Kotero is the first criminal that Green Arrow ever faced.

When Oliver Queen was stranded on a desert island, he encountered another man, who claimed to be a shipwrecked sailor. The two of them worked side by side on the island, building a float and mastering the art of archery together.

However, Ollie soon realized that he was in fact the "Love Boat Killer", Nicholas Kotero, known for murdering women on cruise ships. Ollie fought and defeated him but refused to kill him, instead leaving him behind and heading for the nearby Starfish Island.

Many years later, Oliver Queen returned home and became the crimefighting Green Arrow. In recent years, Nicholas Kotero returned and blamed Green Arrow for the deaths of his victims, because Green Arrow did not kill him when he had the chance.

Green Arrow put him in prison. After igniting race riots from prison, Nicholas was defeated by Connor Hawke.
