Mayor Altman was the mayor of Starling City until he was killed by a vigilante group known as The Hoods. He was also one of The Hood's supporters.


At the Starling Earthquake Relief Fund, Altman discussed the idea of vigilantism with Adam Donner, comparing The Hood and his copycats to the country's founding fathers. Laurel Lance approached them, Altman giving his apologies for the destruction of her former employer. He was suddenly called up to the lectern to give a speech. He attempted to inspire courage in the crowd, but he was interrupted by The Hoods, who shot him dead.[1]
