My Justice League picks, 16th collage
Oliver Queen's gang had degenerated into mindless brutality. What had
started out with good intentions eventually led to abuses of justice.
This change in methodology caused a fracture in the group. The most
outspoken critic of these changes was Jordan Cross. Jordan's concerns
were soon echoed by Kyle Tippet, and finally with Bart Allen.
Bart Allen's obsession with stopping crime in Metropolis, which had become an
epidemic because of the large number of metahumans living there, caused him to
not consider the implications of his actions at the time. But through his conversations
with Kyle Tippet and Jordan Cross Bart came to understand that not only were his
actions wrong but they were also illegal.
When Bart began to realize the repercussions of his actions, while acting as a
member of Oliver's gang, he was furious. He was also angry at himself for not
realizing the wrongfulness of what he had been doing.
Bart placed a large part of the blame on Arthur Curry for bringing Helena Bertinelli
and Black Canary into Oliver's gang, along with their vigilante brand of justice. He
confronted Arthur, told him what he thought about him and his new friends, and
then punched him in the face so quickly that Arthur fell backwards. Bart's attack was
a blow to Arthur's ego. Not knowing how to fight back against Bart, who could move
hundreds of times faster than Clark Kent, Arthur decided that he would wait and talk
to him after he calmed down.
