See? It's ok Roy killed two innocent people because he's a hero. Makes sense to me.

I'm out.

Good grief, You really have a sensitive issue with some lawless and anti hero behavior portrayed by TV characters don’t you?

Seems like Arrow drives you crazy especially

That’s not the comic book characters I grew up with....I’m out.

Geez if Arrow and Gotham bother you this much, you would absolutely hate Titans on DC Universe.

I watched Titans. It doesn't bother me because they're up front as to what it is.

Arrow on the other hand is completely different. They're trying to be a vigilante team that works within the bounds of the law. The fact that the police chief, of all people, says it's ok to murder Innocents after season after season of her saying otherwise just doesn't fly with me.

The show just isn't what it was anymore anyways. I've had enough.

This show has never been able to show any consistency regarding how to treat killing. It varies from season to season, even from one episode to the next.

When Arrow first began, they were definitely going for a gritty and dark anti-hero concept. Then mainstream "superheroism" became popular in Hollywood again as Marvel's lighter movies started dominating at the box office. So Arrow's producers made a 180 and converted Oliver into more of a traditional superhero vigilante archetype, but they've wavered on it as storylines dictated.

Oliver is a sociopath so it's always felt "off" to me when the show tries so hard to make him a hero. What's worse is that they have the Star City police working with Team Arrow when they're freely killing bad guys left and right. Those aren't imaginary bullets Diggle and Rene are using.

It's been mentioned here before about how if a main character is spared, the sparer is a hero, ignoring the piles of bodies of nameless henchmen cut down to get to that main character.
