Nah, it's the Green Something. After Green Hornet and Green Lantern you can't call a show Green Arrow without confusing big parts of the audience, the titles are too similar.
"Hey hon, there's a show about that green guy coming on."
"You know he had a ring and a car and an Asian butler."
"Oh yeah, the one with Seth Green."

Poor "general population", we think so lowly of them. I'm not sure if it's not true though.
It's true. My next-door neighbor rented GREEN LANTERN expecting a goofy superhero comedy with Seth Rogen. Boy, was he confused. And only yesterday I heard this from an acquaintance:

"You mean the X-MEN and AVENGERS aren't the same thing?"

And, just this morning, I ran into someone who confused BABYLON-5 with BATTLESTAR GALACTICA . . . .

We assume everybody knows this stuff, because it's burned into our brains, but most of the world isn't paying that much attention to it.
