i am surprised no one has pointed out that most material is ripped off of something else. the artist like to call it inspiration but this guy knows the truth
This guy likes his shit to be original shit. Also: shitty shitty shit shit shit. SUPER SHITTY SHIT BRO
Everything's stolen nowadays! The fax machine is just a waffle iron with a phone attached to it!
Technically, though, Green Arrow IS a knock-off, as there was an archery-themed superhero who debuted in 1938. His name is The Arrow.
I wonder how he feels about Hawkeye?
He has a point... but he also has shit.And who wears a shirt with CASH written on it? O_O
I suppose this gentleman doesn't read much.
And Robin Hood can be considered a rip off of previous historical & mythological figures such as Eustace the Black Monk, FitzWarren and even William Wallace.I am reminded of an old quote among some History buffs: The Greeks told all the original stories. Not true really, but tracing the origin of myths and legends can lead one pretty far back in time.
Because I'm sure he read the original ballads of Robin Hood dating back from the 15th/16th century.
He was more a rip-off of Batman, actually. Although both characters have developed quite a bit since the Golden Age, in the '40s, Green Arrow was basically a lamer version of Batman in a Robin Hood costume.That said, everything's a remix anyway. Unless all he reads is Mesopotamian mythology or something.
Really? Was he wearing a Cash tee for real? I love him and all, but Johnny Cash, at the end of the day, was often a glorified cover artist. A damn good one, mind you.
Spider-Man is the only original hero, when you really think about it.
spider-man original. that's funny.this site needs more thor girl.
Masamundane, I can't tell if you're serious or trolling. If it's the former, then I'm pretty sure it's not a Johnny Cash shirt.
The former, sadly enough. I'm old, and I couldn't even think of anything else his shirt would stand for...
So, he basically reads nothing. Someone should explain to this dipshit that cultural (and scientific) advancement is a process of accretion, building upon everything that has come before (meaning everything new is in some way a rip-off of something old). To (inaccurately) quote Isaac Newton, "If I have seen further, it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants."
Guys like this make Joseph Campbell cry.
Guys like this make Bruce Campbell famous.
I wonder if his "TAT's" are original art work or just rip offs of Sailor Jerry original flash/pin-up art?
Green Arrow is only a rip-off or a knock-off if the creator saw Robin Hood and said "I want to make something like that". Otherwise, it's a coincidence. 'The Green Arrow' might've been uninspired, but that's as may be. Knock-off's are always deliberate.
Anonymous 8:48 AM, leave Bruce Campbell alone! He kills demons so you can live your leisurly life.
The Green Archer was a novel written by Edgar Wallace & first published in 1923 - I'm guessing it might have been an influence on Green Arrow (first published 1941). Just saying.....
