Default The "Green" before "Arrow"

Might dropping it make the comic sell better?

And does DC really need another character whose name starts with "Green?"

I forget, do they already have a comic based on the show? If so, there might be some confusion. If not...there still might be some confusion, but it might increase sales depending on how positively the show is viewed.

I don't think, outside of some kind of possible synergy with the show, there is any reason to think that the use of the word "Green" is holding the title back in sales by itself.

Arrow by itself seems a bit too generic. Same reason why they didn't just call Capt. Marvel 'Marvel' by itself [and probably cause the competition would get super pissed somebody else used the word].

What GA needs is some decent rogues of his own. Onomatopoeia was the best new one he had and Kevin Smith decided to use him in that Batman story...

There were years of legal wrangling over that name. IIRC, there's even a sidebar about Marvel's Captain vs. Fawcet/DC in that anniversary coffee table they made.

The answer is no, it wouldn't. Then again, more people usually will buy Batman over Detective Comics no matter the creative team, so who really knows?

The could drop the "Green" and see whether that helps sales. If it doesn't, they could put it back.
