The clips look fine, but why retool the character to the point of changing his name? Why not just call him Green Arrow?
Despite having a Green Arrow on SV go by that name perhaps they are actually giving audiences some credit in name association.
Thus trying to distance from any confusion with:
Green Hornet
Green Lantern

This is a real issue. Us hardcore comix fans can tell them apart, but the average person? Heck, my own next-door neighbor gets Green Hornet and Green Lantern mixed up. So why throw another "Green Comic-Book Guy" at them?

"Green Arrow? He's gay now, right? I think I heard something about that . . . ."
In fact the local drive-time DJs were talking here just last week about "Green Hornet coming out as gay" in DC comics.
