While never a major hit in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, Green Arrow and Speedy sold decently, and were members of the [[ComicBook/SevenSoldiers Seven Soldiers of Victory]], Creator/DCComics' second superhero team. After UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the pair was moved to ''Adventure Comics'' along with ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}. As pet characters of editor Mort Weisinger, they were published continuously as backups to the Superboy feature all the way from 1946 to 1960. GA and Speedy then jumped to ''World's Finest'' until 1964. During this time period, Green Arrow changed very little, sticking to short, fun stories in which he used trick arrows to thwart criminals and save lives. Perhaps the best remembered stories are the short run in 1958 by JackKirby. Green Arrow also became a member of the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueofAmerica JLA]] during this period, whilst Speedy went and joined the ComicBook/TeenTitans.

Alternately, Green Arrow was a major, if secondary, character in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' animated series, where in his first appearance, he defeated a giant, radioactive robot that cleaned the clock of ComicBook/GreenLantern, Captain Atom, and {{Supergirl}}. He remained as the conscience of the Justice League, echoing the politically relevant series from the 1970s.

After some years of being teamed with Green Lantern or appearing in back-up stories, in 1983 Green Arrow got his own mini-series for the first time. It sold decently, but was not followed up until 1987. As part of its new "mature readers" line, DC gave writer[=/=]artist Mike Grell the chance to reinvent Green Arrow again in ''The Longbow Hunters'' mini-series, followed by an ongoing series. Some radical changes were made, moving GA from the fictional Star City to Seattle, discarding the trick arrows for the most part, removing Black Canary's sonic scream and generally avoiding the more comic-booky elements of TheDCU. This series also became notorious for the scene in which the assassin Shado rapes Oliver Queen, though it was [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale mistakenly referred to as an affair]] by other writers in the years to follow.

Shortly afterward, Green Arrow briefly starred in a third volume of his solo series, which was one of several new DCComics tying into the ComicBook/BrightestDay storyline. Following the events of ''Cry For Justice'', a seemingly [[LostWoods enchanted forest]] grew up in the middle of the Star City. Oliver Queen has moved into the forest, continuing to fight the various powers trying to take advantage of the recent disaster - [[DirtyCop corrupt cops]], [[SleazyPolitician local politicians who are more interested in building a new Entertainment District in the wreckage than helping all the people left homeless by the recent disaster]] and a CorruptCorporateExecutive who has taken over Queen Enterprises.

* DefectorFromParadise: The titular character was resurrected without a soul, as well as any memories of his past during his [[DarkerandEdgier more cynical]] years. He seemed to get along fine without it and his soul rested peacefully in Heaven. However, his lack of a soul made him [[DemonicPossession a gateway for possession by powerful demons]], which would be a very bad thing for the entire world. He eventually convinced his soul (still in Heaven at the time) to come back to his body to save his son from being killed by demonic conjurers.
