- You remember what we did yesterday? We saved the world, again. You don't think that has any value? Well, think again, pal! The Justice League goes on, with or without you. Look, nobody can question your service or commitment to making things better. If you're quitting because you think you've already done your fair share, fine, we'll throw you a parade. But if you're quitting because it's easier than continuing the fight, then you're not the hero we all thought you were. The world needs the Justice League, and the Justice League needs you, Superman.
- — Green Arrow src
Green Arrow first joined the Justice League during the team expansion that followed the Thanagarian invasion of Earth. During his first mission with the team, he helped Green Lantern, Captain Atom, and Supergirl stop an atomic-powered juggernaut called Brimstone during a rampage through the countryside region of China. He soon took notice of Black Canary, who was also admitted to the team at that time, and decided to stay on just to get to know her better. Eventually, Green Arrow helped Black Canary rescue Wildcat from his addiction to fighting in Roulette's Meta-Brawl arena against meta-humans. Black Canary offered to fight Wildcat on the grounds that Roulette would ban him from future participation in Meta-Brawl, which she accepted; however, Green Arrow knocked Black Canary out with a gas arrow and took her place in the ring, letting Wildcat beat him to death in order for him to see the end result of his fighting addiction. Black Canary at first cursed Green Arrow for this action as being stupid, macho, and pig-headed, but admitted with tenderness that what he did was also very sweet of him. Soon she discovered that Green Arrow used a stunner to put himself in metabolic stasis to make it look as if he did die at Wildcat's hands.
