History

In his career as Green Arrow, Oliver Queen has custom designed many unique arrowheads, many of which are interchangeable and can be used for any size arrow shaft. His protégé Roy Harper also employed gimmick arrows during his years as Queen's sidekick Speedy, but now prefers more conventional weaponry. Ollie's son, Connor Hawke, never developed an appreciation for his father's unique weaponry, though he was once forced to rely upon Queen's gimmick arrows during an adventure with the Justice League.

The inspiration for building gimmick arrows was bred out of necessity. Before donning the costumed identity of Green Arrow, Oliver Queen was abandoned on the island of Fiji and forced to fend for himself. The first non-standard arrow he ever created was a flame arrow, which he used against drug runners working for China White. [1]

Since that time, Ollie has used his wealth and resources to fashion speciality arrows suitable for all occasions. These arrows became of great use particularly during his "Hard Traveling Heroes" days with friend and colleague Hal Jordan, as well as his extended tenure with the Justice League of America.

After the dissolution of the original Justice League, Ollie abandoned the use of gimmick arrows and began using standard arrows exclusively. Even now, he prefers the use of more conventional projecticle weapons and rarely employs gimmick arrows. However, desperate times often require desperate measures, and if the situation calls for it, Ollie will occasionally dust off a classic boxing glove or boomerang arrow.

Types

Standard Arrow
Green Arrow often employs standard wooden arrows with a 75 cm to 90 cm shaft, steel heads and plastic fletching.
Bleach Bottle Arrow
During one of the lower moments of Oliver Queen's life, he was forced to use a bleach bottle as an arrowhead to fend off a group of muggers. [2]
Boxing Glove Arrow
This was a customized trick arrow outfitted with a life-size boxing glove in place of an arrow head. It was arguably one of Green Arrow's most often-used trick arrows.
Flash grenade arrow
This is a customized trick arrow equipped with an incendiary tip.
Greek Fire Arrow
This was a customized trick arrow equipped with a tip that could inject a perpetually burning stream of fluid into a target.
Glue Arrow
This is a customized trick arrow with a ball tip containing a highly reactive, fast drying, industrial polymer. It is designed to look like an explosive arrow (i.e. grenade, flare, stun grenade) and is used to subdue stronger adversaries who mistake it for an explosive device which cannot harm them.
Phantom Zone Arrow
Superman once possessed a special blue arrow that opened a portal into the Phantom Zone. Speedy (Roy Harper) stole the arrow and hid it in his possession for many years. He eventually gave it to his successor, Mia Dearden, to use against Superboy-Prime.
