When We First Met - The Cast of Arrow

Oliver's former bodyguard and now top partner in crimefighting, John Diggle, was invented for the Arrow TV series (his name is a reference to Green Arrow: Year One writer Andy Diggle).

Diggle eventually made his comic book debut at the end of Green Arrow #24, late last year, by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino...

The following issue, Lemire, Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz show us how Green Arrow met Diggle (Diggle was working as a bodyguard for Oliver's mother) and how Oliver goes to him for help when he is injured...

Felicity Smoak, interestingly enough, first debuted in the pages of Fury of Firestorm, of all places! She showed up in 1984's issue #23, written by Gerry and Carla Conway and drawn by Rafael Kayanan and Rodin Rodriguez...

She showed up again, as Firestorm again accidentally screws her over, only he takes it a step further this time...

Dick move, Firestorm!

Later, she goes to work for the newspaper that Ronnie Raymond's dad works for...

And the two begin to date...

Eventually, she ends up marrying Ronnie's father. She forgives Ronnie when she learns that he is Firestorm.

The New 52 version of Felicity Smoak just debuted last week in Green Arrow #35 by Andrew Kreisberg, Ben Sokolowski, Daniel Sampere and Jonathan Glapion...
