Biography

Early life

Oliver was born and raised in Starling City as the son of Robert Queen. At some point in his life Oliver met Laurel Lance and they fell deeply in love.[1]

Death

In 2007, Oliver and his father went out to sea together somewhere in the Pacific. Somehow, their ship sank and Oliver was killed while Robert survived.[2]

Legacy

Driven by the grief of losing his son Robert eventually would become a vigilante after unclear circumstances led to his return to Starling City, calling himself "The Hood" and later "The Arrow".[2] Laurel was also heartbroken and out of grief moved to Central City to start a new life. However this tragically led to her becoming a meta-human, as her life took a downward spiral until she became the criminal "Black Siren".[1]

When Laurel encountered Oliver's Earth One counterpart in 2016 she told him about her relationship with Oliver and his death, admitting that interacting with Earth One Oliver was difficult because of what Earth Two Oliver meant to her. After learning of Laurel and Oliver's relationship, Earth One Oliver came to believe Laurel could find redemption and still holds this hope.
