Once a brat with no real direction in the world, Oliver Queen has been through a crucible. Where there was once a free-floating playboy heartbreaker who didn't know what he wanted in life... there is now a traumatized survivor.
Spending five years on an island and traveling globally has given Oliver a fairly diverse -if odd- skillset, and has turned him into a hardened warrior in his own right. A hardened warrior who now protects Starling City as Green Arrow, and the planet as a member of Alpha Flight.
His willingness to kill -when there's no other choice- can put him at odds with other heroes, though.

He is dressed in a dark green outfit whose hood sits over his head, framing his face. He wears a lightly armored kevlar and composite nano-fibered suit whose chest and shoulders are reinforced with thin armor plating, while slung over the man's back by a pair of shoulder straps is a large technologically advanced quiver filled with arrowheads, shafts, and various attached tools. A pair of archer's bracers are attached to his forearms and fingerless tactical gloves cover his hands. The man's pants are a tough green fabric that tuck into a pair of dark green boots with reinforced plates from the knee down to the toe.
Over his teenage years Ollie found a bit of focus, studying laborously in school but preferring to spend all possible free time slacking off. Thanks to his family's wealth and connections, Oliver attended an Ivy League college, but he mostly slept through his courses.
On a vacation with his father upon the family's yacht, Oliver's life would change forever. The ship wrecked, and he was the craft's only survivor--he washed up on a deserted island, where he spent several years on and off learning to hunt, track, and survive with the aid of his archery and marksmanship skills while trying to come to terms with the tragedy that had befallen him--and, in the process, dealing with a number of other individuals who ended up becoming the catalyst for his transformation into a weapon to survive.
When Oliver was eventually found, he found himself a radically different person from his island and global journey: where before he was carefree and unconcerned with others' conditions, now the young man wanted to make use of his 'second chance' at life to try and help others as he could. Finding Starling City in need of a hero, Oliver decided to don a green costume, hide his identity, and serve his fellow citizens as 'the Green Arrow'. At the same time, Oliver was determined to improve the world, promoting a number of initiatives through Queens Consolidated's massive influence, aimed at improving the planet in various ways.
Since that time, Oliver has spent the last several years amassing a cabal of allies--in the city and abroad--to help him in his quest, even as he finds himself opposed more and more by a growing population of enemies. The work, it seems, must continue.
This sense of dedication extends beyond what change Queen believes he can personally effect; Unlike most CEOs, Queen takes an active role in the economic and political landscape of the world, trying to make their planet a better place for all... not just the shareholders.
Despite the focus on his work, Queen does not look on his work as a burden so much as an opportunity, and thus he has come to be relatively jovial and enthusiastic for working with others who share his goals and ideals--a potentially morbid sense of humor and satisfaction, given Queen's recognition that he's doing the work of a superhero armed with a bow, some tools, and his mind and body.
A skill initially developed alongside his hunting and survival skills, Oliver Queen is an agile acrobat, capable of performing a number of difficult and complex physical feats that might injure or otherwise compromise the average individual's body. He continues to train his body daily in order to keep this ability at peak condition.
Oliver Queen is a master in the art of archery. His abilities have been honed across a number of years, and he continues to practice. Queen is an expert with a variety of bows, can make complicated trick shots with ease, and even shoot any number of special arrows with incredible skill; all with perfect accuracy. He has trained to shoot for a quick kill, his styles experimented with and perfected, honed in part by the close study of kyudo.
His accuracy with bows is a combination of zen-like intuition, intelligent factoring of environmental vectors, and plain old fashioned practice.
Of all the various weapons and styles he can use, bows and arrows are his preference; using modern technology, Oliver can quickly and easily switch between arrowheads for damage, utility, or other versatile purposes.
Since being shipwrecked, Oliver Queen has honed his body to nearly its limits. Compared to most other non-powered humans, Queen has exceptional stamina, strength, and speed, as well as an ability to deal with pain and fatigue beyond normal capacity.
Aviation and Driving:
Oliver is proficient in using ground and aerial vehicles. He learned how to operate these vehicles beyond what an average pilot and driver does.
Since his return to Starling City, Oliver has spent the last several years honing his business and administrative skills, learning to run and delegate duties for Queens Consolidated efficiently and effectively. He's not quite a born prodigy for it, but Oliver has taken to approaching his work as a businessman with the same zeal and focus as he does his vigilante efforts.
By no means as smart as Batman or Lex Luthor, Oliver is nonetheless a quick witted individual capable of learning fairly quickly if he applies himself, making him capable of adapting to new situations in the field with surprising speed.
Some might not call this a 'skill,' but Queen is proud of his ability to cook--especially dishes that are particularly spicy. (Some might also say he's just leaning on the spiciness to mask his culinary shortcomings.) Whether it's good or not, his knowledge of cooking is rather vast, and Queen can whip up a dish on the spot from most ingredients put before him.
Escrima and Staff:
An expert in the use of escrima stick fighting, Oliver has been able to best Arsenal, among others, with this. This comes in handy for those few times his bow manages to break in the middle of a fight; he can simply use the broken ends in an improvised manner.
His main bow also transitions into a solidly built staff, with the bow cabling tucked away into the core of it, leading Oliver to become an expert in staff fighting as well, rendering him a capable melee and ranged combatant.
A side effect of his practice in archery, Oliver Queen is capable of using any number of ranged weapons with near perfect accuracy. He can't quite seem to bring the same zen like intuition he uses for archery to any other ranged weaponry, rendering him inaccurate at times... but he's still skilled enough with things like throwing knives and other improvised ranged weapons to be able to hold his own if archery fails him.
Oliver Queen is an expert martial artist, in terms of both unarmed and armed close quarters combat. He's studied such approaches as judo, aikido, kung fu, SAS combat, and krav maga, trying to meld together the fighting styles in order to be as effective as can be, and has learned pressure points from his hobby of medicine to make him more effective at non-lethal blows. While he may not be the top combatant in any individual form (or with any particular melee weapon), Queen can hold his own against the vast majority of opponents.
His time abroad has forced Oliver to learn the basics of self healing, first aid and herbalism. By no means a replacement for formal study, he nonetheless knows how to identify a good number of natural remedies and poison by glance, and has a basic idea of general body structure for diagnosis and other purposes from his time on the island, and traveling willingly or otherwise during his time abroad. He's since picked it up as a hobby to compliment his field work as Green Arrow as a field medic.
This means he can usually keep people from bleeding out, knows when an injury is serious, and can handle self treatment and treatment of the average human to a point in the field.
Thanks to his time shipwrecked on a desert island, Queen has become a superb hunter and tracker. His abilities to trace the path of an animal or person are well matched with his steady hand and collected calm in facing them down. He can be thrown off track, of course, as can any hunter. On a related note, Queen is skilled at moving and acting stealthily, given the need to prevent alerting prey to his presence.
Tactician and Leader:
While he may often feel like he's fighting a good fight alone, the Green Arrow is accompanied--if not surrounded--by a circle of allies (including Team Arrow) that he can faithfully rely on for aid when needed, especially when their areas of expertise fill gaps in his own. They, in turn, trust that he'll be equally loyal to them when they need his help. He can also rely upon the help of Alpha Flight members, being a reliable member of the team.
The Green Arrow's most frequently-used equipment includes a set of various bows of differing weights and substance (longbows, shortbows, break-down compound bows) for various purposes. His main bow is a versatile compound bow that can transition into a solidly built staff for melee combat in seconds.
The bows are complemented by an arsenal of arrow types, conventional and special alike, stored in a specialized, technologically advanced quiver. Large enough to almost be a backpack in itself, but very lightweight, this quiver is designed to build custom arrows on the fly with modular pieces, with the majority of arrowheads and shafts stored in a central cylinder, and 'produced' out to portions of the side of the quiver as needed. In addition to it's typical use as ammo storage, it also serves as an anchor point for any number of devices and utilities Green Arrow might need; grappling hook arrows, being a typical example. This quiver is neurally controlled via an ear mounted device that serves as a communicator and voice modulator as well, allowing Green Arrow to build or change up his modular arrows with a thought, and to speak to others with an altered voice.
Green Arrows suit is also made from various armored and flexible materials. Built for agility and speed, it can nonetheless take direct bullet rounds with a combination kevlar/carbon nanotube matrix. Hardly tank armor, a .50 caliber round can get through... but anything below that well typically be stopped, or at least slowed down.
Thanks to his majority shares of Queens Consolidated (inherited from his father), Oliver can exert considerable control over the direction of the company. It's not always accepted without question, and he can't quite divert tons of cash into private R&D like other tycoons might, but Queen can reasonably assume he'll have support for legal activities he wants the company to engage in, so long as it doesn't seem like market suicide. This also means that he has a personal fortune from the profits that he (and his family before him) accumulated as a result of Queens Consolidated's activity.
A customized motorcycle mainly used for road travel, this can transition into a flying motorcycle within seconds. This mode is extremely draining on the energy cell though, and can only be sustained for a few hours at most.
There is a backup ArrowCave bunker under a nightclub Oliver has purchased as well, if the main one is ever compromised.
Unlike many heroes, Oliver Queen is active in the political landscape of things, and to a lesser extent as Green Arrow, and he works to support that agenda. Sometimes, this means that he loses potential allies that want to keep out of the political limelight. Other times, it means that certain groups target him specifically because he's known to oppose their causes.
Not unlike Bruce Wayne, Oliver Queen has to constantly keep up a public facade of his identity, coming across as a vapid playboy, in order to throw off suspicion that he might be the Green Arrow. This is not always successful, and it forces Queen to act in many ways antithetical to his actual beliefs, but it remains a necessity to keep his identiy secret.
While his experience on the island transformed Oliver Queen from a brat into (what would become) a hero, he has never entirely healed, psychologically speaking, from the five-year isolation he lived through. He lost his family, he lost all sense of self-importance, he lost his innocence--and, occasionally, Oliver gets overwhelmed by intense flashes of memory where he relives parts of that time all over again and, depending on how unexpected they may be, is left unsure of how to handle it.
