History

A prominent and wealthy family. Robert Queen married Laura, prior to the birth of their son Oliver in 1980. Both Robert and Laura were involved with Dr. Virgil Swann's Veritas Society along with the Luthor family and Teague family. Their dedication to welcome the prophecied Traveler resulted in their deaths in a plane crash plotted by Lionel Luthor in 1989,[1] which left Oliver an orphan.

Upon returning to Star City after being marooned on a remote island and presumed dead for years, Oliver re-obtained the ownership of Queen Industries and assumed the image of a billionaire playboy, all whilst secretly patrolling the night streets and fighting crimes under the disguise of a green leather-clad archer. After Dark Thursday, Oliver came to Metropolis to surveillance the activities of Lex Luthor, resulting in the formation of a vigilante team including Bart Allen, Arthur Curry, Victor Stone and Dinah Lance, whose interventions significantly hindered Lex's Level 33.1 operations.

After Lex's apparent demise in 2008, Oliver attempted a merger to acquire LuthorCorp through collaboration of his old flame Tess Mercer, though it was disrupted when a disgruntled former employee bombed the board meeting. Oliver's Queen Industries assets were instrumental in fighting Zod's alien invaders in 2009, but it also put him directly within the United States Government's crosshairs, resulting in multiple kidnaps throughout 2010 first by Checkmate and then by the Suicide Squad and DDS's VRA enforcers under Wilson and Trotter. After publicly revealing his Green Arrow identity in 2011, Oliver married his colleague Chloe Sullivan,[2] and moved back to Star City. Together they had a son named Jonathan Queen a year later after the Crisis ended.[3]
