    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...

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.
