Billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was presumed dead for five years after being caught in a terrible shipwreck. He is eventually found alive on a remote island in the Pacific and brought back home to Starling City to reunite with his mother, sister, and best friend.
Something, however, is different about Oliver after his time on the island. He is hiding the truth about the man he has become and seeks to make amends for the actions he took in his youth. Secretly, he has become a vigilante under a new persona known as Arrow, out to right the errs of his family and fight the wrongdoings of society in hopes of restoring Starling City to its former glory.
