Ollie really should carry a mace for when combat goes hand to hand.
Right from the start, she's put a bit of spin on Green Arrow's bullshit. And by spin I mean she's completely changed history.
Also, I've never heard of Suzie Ming. I guess she'll show up later to kiss Green Arrow on the mouth.
The issue begins with Green Arrow already making an assault on Fang's house. Apparently Ollie doesn't give a shit about his secret identity. A blonde American business man insults Fang and starts a fight in his house and then a few days later, a blonde American super hero attacks his house. I'm pretty sure Green Arrow is going to have to kill him at this point.
Good thing Fang's kids are there to explain the cultural importance of the Chinese Queue.
Is this moment supposed to be funny? Am I just not getting Ann Nocenti's sense of humor?
Fang's ancestor ghosts are full of whimsy and the ability to speak English. I think Green Arrow might have to resort to a Boxing Glove Arrow or two. Or he might just get his soul sucked out. Too bad this wasn't the Preboot Green Arrow! Wasn't he missing his soul for some reason or another? But he's the Reboot version and he just about loses his soul this time around too! Except Suzie Ming shows up just in time like a good super hero.
The first thing they do is almost kiss! I was just fucking joking, Ann Nocenti!
She can kill demons and solve business disputes. Suzie Ming is amazing!
Well, at least he manages one of those. He doesn't apologize and he doesn't kiss the girl. But he does give Fang the Wolftech (Hey! My Blood Bowl Team was named the Wolftech Warlords!) but he rigs it so that if Fang uses it, they'll know and can keep tabs on everything he finds out. He then flies back to Seattle where the action from Green Arrow #14 is already beginning.
Yay! A team up between two of the three worst characters currently in the DCnU! If only Grifter could make the party, it would be shittastic.
Green Arrow #13 Rating: No change. Ann Nocenti wrote an issue of Green Arrow that I could tolerate! Some of her plot problems were just extensions of the problems from earlier, so I didn't hold those against her. Basically the this issue ended is the way Issue #11 should have ended. All of the interim violence was due to Oliver Queen acting like a selfish, narcissistic dumb ass.
