New This Fall: DC Comics’ Arrow

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics,

Mister MiracleAs you all know by now, Green Arrow has finally gotten his own series. Only they’ve had to shorten it to just Arrow for reasons known only to Television Network Naming Executives.

Maybe that’s the secret to getting comic books on television though. Dropping the first part of their name must make them more dynamic and appealing.

Green Arrow sounds sort of old-fashioned and comic booky. But Arrow is hip and full of power and urgency.

With that in mind, I’d like to propose my own list of 10 classic DC characters that could easily be on TV with new dynamic - and shortened - names:

10. Twins

9. Miracle

8. Hex

7. Marvel

6. Thing


5. Grodd

4. Carrot

3. Woman

2. Olsen

And the number one title? It’s a tie:

1. Boy and Girl
