The two of them worked side by side on the island, building a float and mastering the art of archery together. However, Ollie soon realized that he was in fact the "Love Boat Killer", Nicholas Kotero, known for murdering women on cruise ships. Ollie fought and defeated him but refused to kill him, instead leaving him behind and heading for the nearby Starfish Island.

War with Green Arrow

Many years later, Oliver Queen returned home and became the crime fighting Green Arrow.
