Origin

Known as the world's greatest archer, the origins of the man called Merlyn are shrouded in mystery. Merlyn's magical skills with a bow and arrow impressed a young Oliver Queen years before he became the Green Arrow. Years later Queen's idol would challenge and defeat him in a public archery competition. Soon afterward the master archer would disappear from the public eye.


Years later as a member of the League of Assassins, the Merlyn and Green Arrow would clash when the master archer was assigned to kill Batman. Green Arrow saved the Dark Knight from a trap when he knocked away Merlyn's arrow with his own. Merlyn acknowledged that Green Arrow had surpassed him in skill and then made his escape.
