Longtime readers of CMNS will note that Green Arrow was a character from the 40's that never quite went away. He and Aquaman both survived as back-up features for Superman and Batman, two of the rapidly dwindling number of super-heroes who could still sell comics after World War II.
As you may recall, the original Green Arrow and his sidekick Speedy were rather bland Batman and Robin knock-offs. It wasn't until Justice League of America v1 #75 that the character lost his fortune, changed his costume, grew a beard, ditched Speedy, and became the DC Universe's resident liberal troublemaker, challenging the morality of other heroes who he felt enforced the status quo of an unfair society.
As one might expect, this was a character that now had a very unique perspective and enjoyed a newfound popularity since his late 60's rebirth, including seeing the character portrayed in the live-action WB show Smallville.
All that being said, he is also quite the man-whore:
hmmmmm.... So if I get involved, I may be able to help myself to... I mean, help this woman!
Such a sly dog.
He is also the only character that, to my knowledge, once changed into his costume via a port-a-potty:
That was from World's Finest #270, for those of you who want to run out and buy your own copy. And yes, that is an official CMNS Moment of Comic Book Greatness! (tm!)
I've been wrong before, so if you have other characters changing from their civilian identities in a port-a-potty, please let me know in the comments. I think this is something we really should be keeping track of.
Hey! It's Jimmy and Lois!
Lois! Superman's reeling! And based on my facial expression, I am so stoned! Do you have any Doritos?
Well, today was just silly.
See you Monday!
