For the newer, updated version of Oliver's suit, see Green Arrow suit.

The Arrow suits were a series of protective suits designed and created by Talia al Ghul and later upgraded by Lodai. It was later upgraded again by Cisco Ramon to be utilized by Oliver Queen as The Hood/The Arrow.

History

Original suit

During his time in Russia in 2012, Oliver Queen was presented with a kevlar-lined suit by Talia al Ghul, along with Yao Fei Gulong's old hood. Using this, he decided to become "something else".[1] When he returned to Starling City, he brought the suit with him.

Oliver originally used dark green grease paint to help protect his identity, but when he met Barry Allen, he was given a mask that would help better conceal his identity and not impair his vision while aiming.

Upgrades

When Team Flash briefly visited Team Arrow in Star City, Cisco Ramon designed a new suit for Oliver, making it out of a polymer kevlar weave; it was also 25% lighter and could carry 15% more gear, he continued to wear this suit throughout his career as the Arrow.[2]

Confiscation and destruction

The suit was later confiscated by the police and destroyed.

The suit later appeared in a hallucination when Oliver was abducted by the Dominators. The suit was worn by John Diggle. It was similar to the one Oliver wore but it had the holster from the Green Arrow suit.
