[Image description: Connor Hawke dressed as Green Arrow. He is shooting an arrow. Also looking rather white washed. The background is a red/orange spiral. And then there’s some text:]
Real name: Connor Hawke
Base of Operations: Various
Marital State: Single
Weight: 160 lbs
First Appearance: Green Arrow #0
The only known son of the original Green Arrow, Connor Hawke is the living antithesis of his volatile, womanizing father, Oliver Queen. An earnest young man with a mature and thoughtful nature, he was noominated for the team by Green Lantern in a bid to enlarge the membership. More recently, however, he has begun to suspect he was only invited to join because Green Lantern was tired of being the only inexperienced member, an accusation Kyle Rayner emphatically denies. More comfortable in the company of older heroes, Green Arrow has formed a strong relationship with Aquaman, the two often teaming up as Aquaman recalls hilarious, bombastic accounts of his adventures with Connor’s late father. Accused of nepotism by those who failed the membership drive, the Justice League insisits Green Arrow is more than a boy with a bow and arrow. They owe him their lives, as he singlehandedly defeated the Key.

Also, I cannot grasp the fact that Connor is in fact shorter than Kyle. Most of the time he’s drawn taller.
Too bad about the whitewashing. :(
