Arrow Season 7 Villain
Get ready to meet the Longbow Hunters next year. These were the villains of one of the most important Green Arrow stories ever told, Mike Grell’s Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters,
On his forty-third birthday, Ollie Queen relocates from Star City to Seattle, Washington, the home of his girlfriend Dinah Lance. He changes his costume and abandons the use of his trademark trick arrows for more traditional archery equipment. As Green Arrow tries to track down a serial killer, the Seattle Slasher, killing prostitutes in the area, Black Canary attempts to infiltrate a drug racket which may have ties to Kyle Magnor, a wealthy shipping magnate.Oliver tracks the killer to the abandoned Seattle Underground section of the city, discovering that the killer is a disturbed ex-tunnel rat from the Vietnam War….
Dean said yes to Michael. After all, we learned in season 5 that Dean is Michael’s perfect vessel, or as Zachariah put it, he’s Michael’s sword. So Dean’s hope was that, with his sword, Michael could defeat Lucifer.
As the refugees from Apocalypse World start to settle in and the Winchesters resume hunting alongside Jack and Castiel, one of the Apocalypse World refugees, Maggie, turns up dead. Shortly afterwards, Jack is greeted by Lucifer who entices his son into leaving the Earth to find a new life out amongst the stars. Jack gets Lucifer to resurrect Maggie who later identifies Lucifer as her killer. At the same time, Michael appears to attack the Winchesters and Castiel who barely escape. With the bunker under attack, Mary and Bobby Singer flee as Sam prays to Jack for help. Jack severely injures Michael before Lucifer’s actions are revealed. Only wanting his son’s power, Lucifer steals Jack’s grace, leaving Jack human before teleporting to a church with Jack and Sam. With Lucifer now virtually unstoppable, Dean makes a deal with Michael where he will become Michael’s vessel to fight Lucifer but Dean will remain in control. Powered by Michael, Dean fights Lucifer, ending with Dean finally killing Lucifer with the Archangel Blade. With Lucifer dead, the Winchesters and Jack celebrate only to have Michael betray his deal, take full control of Dean and depart.
Spoiler: Dean was right. Michael killed his brother … but he didn’t let go of Dean, despite their deal that the fight would be a one-time thing. Heading into season 14, Ackles’ main character will Michael (who apparently has a thing for suits).
The victory lap is cut short, though, as Michael reneges on his deal and takes over Dean’s body. “Thanks for the suit,” he says before disappearing… and going clothes shopping for a new vintage wardrobe? And with that, we end the season on Dean/Michael’s blue eyes
“No Man’s Land” arc in the final season. Now that Jim’s stayed behind – along with Bruce, Alfred, Lucius, Harvey, and a dozen expendable cops meant to be fed to Penguin’s Place, the Fire Factory, the Ice Tunnels, the Siren Sanctuary, and Scarecrow’s – um – Scanctuary – chaos will rain down on the city so that Ra’s Al Ghul’s prophecy of Bruce rising up as a “Dark Knight” hero can be fulfilled.

A few weeks back, Ra’s tried to kill Barbara and dismissed her as a vapid, in his words, whore. This week, Ra’s offers to bring Barbara and her squad of female killers back into the League fold and we still don’t know why Ra’s is even drawn to what to him would be a petty criminal.
