They were later captured by Brainiac and taken to his ship. They were forced to fight Black Adam and Aquaman in Kahndaq after being mind-controlled by Grodd. They are both freed after Aquaman killed Grodd with his trident.
Powers and Abilities
Much like Batman, Oliver Queen has trained himself to his physical peak and relies on several technological devices to help him fight crime, but where Batman uses multiple items in various forms, Green Arrow primarily relies on his bow and arrow. Oliver is a trained athlete and has some martial arts skills for basic hand-to-hand combat tactics, but where Oliver's true skill lies is in his archery mastery. Green Arrow's bow can shoot more than just standard arrows, Ollie relies on all sorts of trick arrows, ranging from elementally themed shafts, to an arrow with a boxing glove at the end, to explosive tipped arrows. Ollie can use the bow itself as a striking weapon for surprise attacks.

After the fall of Superman, Green Arrow visited the Star City of this parallel Earth. His counterpart was one of the first heroes to fall in the battle against Superman, one of the first to object to The Man of Steel's new tactics and reasoning. A memorial erected in Star City's Orchid Bay served as a reminder of the need to fight oppression, regardless of the odds. There, Green Arrow found that one citizen wasn't content to memorialize Oliver Queen in stone. With Green Arrow's training, a new archer, dressed in crimson, took up the fallen hero's mantle. Let Star City's criminals beware. The night belongs to Red Arrow.
Taking down that green-skinned bastard got me thinking about the people of my Earth. My universe's Brainiac had never come calling. I had to warn them. By the time I got home, it was too late. My Earth was *this* close to being gone for good. But that's when the strangest cavalry you've ever seen rode in. It was a full-on, multiverse Justice League! They'd been hopping between universes, battling Brainiac in every one. I couldn't refuse when they asked me to join. I've seen what Brainiac can do. Nobody, in any universe, should have to face that threat again.
Green Arrow wears a dark green shirt with a hood underneath a long light green vest, dark green pants and green boots. He carries a quiver along his back that is filled with arrows and has a dark green strap that goes along his chest. He also has long green gloves, a black mask, and green padding on his arm. On the other arm he has a green gauntlet with gold accents and wears knee guards and green boots. His bow is a traditional Longbow which looks to be made from fiberglass and has laminated carbon fiber reinforcements on the limbs. It also has a detachable scimitar-style dagger mounted on it.
Green Arrow wears a dark green shirt with a yellow undershirt. He has brown shoulderguards with an elaborate gold pattern on them. He also wears brown padding on his forearms. His pants are green with brownish red accents and has black boots with gold on the ankles.
To the right is the base skin for Green Arrow, Emerald Archer. He is wearing his default gear. The remainder of his costumes can be found on his gallery page.
- Green Arrow's debut trailer aired on the same day as the pilot for the show Arrow on the CW, making him the 10th character to be confirmed as playable.
- Green Arrow is voiced by Alan Tudyk reprising the role from Young Justice while his costume based off CW's Arrow TV show is voiced by Stephen Amell who plays him on the show. This makes him one of only three characters known to be voiced by two different voice actors, the others being Green Lantern (Hal Jordan and John Stewart) and Nightwing (Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne).
- He is the only character whose alternate version doesn't appear in Story Mode. This is because he was killed before the two universes met.
- The Dagger on his bow is actually fully detachable, which is seen when closely watching his combo animations, where he uses it like a normal dagger/shortsword and by leaving it attached as a blade for his bow-clubbing.
- Interestingly, Merlyn makes a cameo appearance in one of Green Arrow's S.T.A.R. Labs mission, though he just uses Green Arrow's default appearance.
- A total of three variations of Green Arrow have been seen in both the comics and video games, the Regime universe which was killed by Superman, the "main" universe from the video game, and the Green Arrow from the universe Black Canary was sent to by Doctor Fate where it was Black Canary who had died instead of Green Arrow. This Green Arrow would then be brought into the Injustice universe by Doctor Fate to replace their Green Arrow.
- When fighting himself, Green Arrow will joke that he can't tell which of them is evil because they both have beards.
- If fighting Canary, jokes about their marriage are made.
- Oliver appears to be right-handed, as he usually uses his right hand to pull back on the arrow.
- Green Arrow being in Injustice 2 confused many people as they had thought he was killed by Superman long before the first game's plot, however in the Injustice comics it's explained that the Green Arrow seen in Injustice 2 is actually an alternate reality Green Arrow from a world where his wife had died instead of him, Doctor Fate brings this Green Arrow into the Injustice universe and he begins his relationship with Black Canary all over again.
