Hi,
While I'm vouching for Green Arrow's joining of Justice League I also have another request. This time, I ask will Hawkman join the upcoming Justice League rebirth? Green Arrow and Hawkman are two of my favorite members from older Justice Leagues and I want to see them both join the roster. I can picture the roster being Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern (Baz), Green Lantern (Cruz), Cyborg, Green Arrow, and Hawkman. Another reason I want Hawkman on the team is because there are no plans for Hawkman as of yet and Hawkman is too important to be left out of the DC Rebirth mythos. A third reason is because I want to see Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and Hawkman work together. So please, DC, ADD GREEN ARROW AND HAWKMAN TO THE JUSTICE LEAGUE REBIRTH IN THE FUTURE!!!

I think before he is added to the League again Hawkman needs another overhaul, strip away the awful armour and tinsel and revert to the more traditional look. There is fantastic milage to be had out of the policeman from Thanagar studying earth's society and culture, and you can do something with Hawkman that is rather intelligent while keeping the traditional tropes like the mace and savage combat. DC have made the same mistakes with the 2011 reboot, reworking their characters to be far more violent and ignorant than they were ever intended to be.

If I had any say in the matter I would bring in Green Arrow yes, but give him a wariness of the League. He simply has to be different to Marvels Hawkeye. And the way to do that is to have him be the League's outsider of sorts, a man who is with them but is his own man. Not quite the unquestioning team player that Green Lantern or Aquaman are...

I'm not asking this to be a smart-aleck Dave, but don't we already have that in Batman?

Dave's right, and not really(the Batman thing). Batman doesn't trust ANYBODY, that's true, but GA should be that moral compass that sits on the outside looking in. Where Batman can still see the League as a tool to provide a means to his ends, Ollie, TRADITIONAL Ollie, was born into comics as the mouthpiece for the people. Even those original GA/GL stories gave us a GOD (GL) tempered by the social constraint and insight of the common man (GA). Batman considers the rest of the JL peers. Ollie sees himself as the odd man out who's there to make sure 'the Man' doesn't take advantage of the people. He's just a guy, but through training, wit, and perseverance he can keep up with the Big League enough to keep an eye on them and will be the first to point out the emperor's clothes.

Of course Dave'll put it better, and Ollie in the comics will probably end up more like the CW character anyway so this will all be moot \:\(

So basically Justice League Unlimited Green Arrow.

Along with the initial two years of Earth-2 Green Arrow was a title that won me over initially in the 2011 restart, I have rather enjoyed the modernised Ollie Queen on the whole. And yet... he often lacks that energy, that passion, that I associate with Green Arrow. He had a strong opinionated character that set him apart from the rest of the Justice League, and indeed the DCU, and I am quite aware that much of this passion, along with John Stewart in the 1970's, came from that more rarified and political era and its more socially aware creative staff.
With the rise of Hawkeye in the past decade Green Arrow has to be as singular and distinct as he once was. And while it might be unrealistic to have the modern-age younger Oliver be as fiercely passionate as he was in those days I still maintain the character needs something about his character that is not so atypical and run-of-the-mill as any other streetfighter vigilante/hero out there in comics...

 
Green Arrow was always a rebel, a social crusader, often seen as far too argumentative to be fit company, but then that was usually because he was challenging orthodox superhero thinking and prodding his contemporaries to do something more in the world than the usual <i>stop-the-villain-of-the-week</i> ritual.
 
In short then he was a highly memorable and distinctive addition to the League.
