While attending a fund raiser, Lois witnesses the Green Arrow steal a rare diamond necklace off Martha's neck and vows to find the man behind the costume. Clark does some investigating of his own and discovers Oliver Queen is the Green Arrow who steals from the rich, who really fence art works which were stolen and sold on the black market, to donate them anonymously to legitimate museums as a modern-day Robin Hood. Soon, Lois lands in mortal danger when she brashly publishes an article in the Daily Planet claiming to know the identity of the Green Arrow, which leads to her getting kidnapped by henchmen of the ruthless millionaire who owns the embarrassed security company to torture her till she talks. Meanwhile, Lex enlists Lionel's help in testing Lana's loyalty. Written by Anonymous

Arrival of the Emerald Archer
8 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Arrow' introduces a character from the future Justice League of America, Green Arrow, in this exciting episode.

Lionel is holding a party and especially commending Martha's work in Washington when a necklace that Martha was wearing, given to her by Lionel, gets stolen in a blackout. Clark investigates and discovers that the "thief" is Oliver Queen, seen in this seasons' second and third episodes. However, Clark learns that Lionel had bought the necklace off the Black Market, that it had been previously stolen, and that Green Arrow, as a modern Robin Hood, was trying to return it to its original owner. Meanwhile, Oliver's love interest Lois Lane is determined to find this thief and reveal his secret identity.

This episode is awesome because it features a new superhero, one that will be a key ally of Superman, and creates an interesting twist with Oliver's potential girlfriend Lois loving and despising the same person.
