Black Canary, The Arrow and Arsenal face Ra's al Ghul

Black Canary, the Arrow and Arsenal, a group of vigilantes.

A vigilante, also known as a "mask", is an individual who takes the law into their own hands, believing that the police and the court system are unable to or unreliable at bringing criminals to justice. However, not all vigilantes are fighting for justice, some do it out of personal revenge or antagonistic reasoning. It is also common for vigilantes to take on a moniker to be known by, some by personal choice and others by having been named by the public.

Some vigilantes eventually gain a level of popularity and admiration from the general public that they begin to be seen as a "superhero". Despite the name suggesting this term is reserved for individuals with superhuman abilities, it is also used to define individuals without any, but instead rely on combat skills, intellect, and/or gadgetry.
