The Original Green Arrow
All Golden Age adventures of Green Arrow and Speedy were retroactively eliminated
from continuity by the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Green Arrow and Speedy were some of few wartime heroes to survive DC's super-hero
purge of the early 1950s. DC continued to publish their adventures through
the '50s, in Adventure Comics. In pre-Crisis continuity, thhis 50s
pair were considered to have lived on Earth-One.
The "Earth-One," or Silver Age Green Arrow and Speedy are considered to have debuted in Adventure Comics #250 (July 1958), when Jack Kirby began on the feature.
