Whoops, sorry for the redundancy.
Ollie's best friend's last name is Merlyn....and he has a thing for Lance. I would venture something happens in the future that makes him hate Ollie/G.A. (Ollie and Lance getting back together, or perhaps someone from his family being injured or killed by G.A., etc).....then he starts training and becomes an expert Archer out for revenge!!!
He may be....but I thought he was a Pirate in the Caribbean.

Whatever form his antagonism takes, and whether he actually becomes an archer himself like the comics, it seems pretty clear that Laurel is going to be the dividing point between him and Oliver.
I really do not see Merlyn as a potential villain. A "you are banging your ex-girlfriend again, who I really like" storyline is not enough to justify him training for years to become a master archer and a criminal. Something more has to happen, but so far we do not know enough about this guy to guess what this might be.

I'm still waiting for a new Wonder Twins ongoing. Let's make it happen, DC.
